<P>For most of her solo career, <a href="">Beyonc&#233;</a> has been like the Diana Ross of her generation: a glamorous diva who's wowed us with her prodigious talent and envelope-pushing style while maintaining an arm's-length distance that gave her a pop royalty air. </P><P> </P><P>But on Thursday (April 5), she joined the Lady Gagas and Katy Perrys of the world by taking a dive into the social media pool. For fans of a singer so private she wouldn't even confirm her marriage to hubby Jay-Z for years, it was a precious peek into the glamorous, globetrotting world of music royalty. </P><P> </P><P><div style="background-color:#000000;width:428px;"><div style="padding:4px;"><iframe src="" width="420" height="236" frameborder="0"></iframe></div></div> </P><P> </P><P>The "Love on Top" star <a href="!/BEYONCE" target="_blank">announced</a> the foray with her first <a href="">tweet</a>, "Hey World, it's B! I'm so excited to invite you to my new &#8212; we've been working hard, and it's finally ready for you XO." (It's worth noting that at press time with only one tweet, B's account already had more than 3.5 million followers.) </P><P> </P><P><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Hey World, It's B!I'm so excited to invite you to my new <a href="" title=""></a> - we've been workinghard, and it's finally ready for you XO</p>&mdash; Beyonce Knowles (@Beyonce) <a href="" data-datetime="2012-04-05T13:58:29+00:00">April 5, 2012</a></blockquote> </P><P><script src="//" charset="utf-8"></script> </P><P> </P><P>And when fans checked into the personal <a href="" target="_blank">Tumblr</a> she'd set up, well, their dreams were answered. The page is a treasure trove of private moments, from Queen B chilling on exotic vacations with sister Solange, to pics of her arm-in-arm with Jigga, silly Halloween shots, pregnancy photos, arty still lifes and even a 15-second video in which a visibly pregnant Bey walks by a blue ivy tree. </P><P> </P><P>Of course, <a href="">daughter Blue Ivy</a> was born earlier this year and people have been scrambling to figure out the meaning of the name for months. </P><P> </P><P>The site also has a number of shots of the singer's nephew, Julez, and in a message entitled, "I Am," she explains, "This is my life, today, over the years -- through my eyes. My family, my travels, my love. This is where I share with you. This will continue to grow as I do. Love, Beyonce." </P><P> </P><P><I>What do you think of Beyonc&#233;'s new Tumblr?
