Beyoncé celebrates her milestone 40th birthday today, and Harper's Bazaar celebrated Bey's big day and their September cover star by getting a multitude of celebs, from Oprah and First Lady Jill Biden to Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift, to send their well wishes to Beyoncé. Swift's tribute was particularly striking and marks a very rare public appearance from the singer who has otherwise kept a very low profile this summer. Watch it below.

Swift said in the video, 'Happy birthday, Beyonce. It’s Taylor. The fact that you have paved the road that every female artist is walking down now, then the fact that you’ve done so with such kindness and such grace, I—just, to say I admire you is like, there’s just not a word for it.'

Other stars have shared Bey tributes on their Instagrams:

Swift last shared a special Beyoncé moment she had in March, following the Grammys. Beyoncé sent Swift flowers to celebrate Swift's Album of the Year win. 'Woke up to flowers from the queen of grace & greatness @beyonce and suddenly it's the best Friday EVER,' Swift wrote on her Instagram Stories. 'Thank you B and congratulations on your epic achievement Sunday night!!' (Beyoncé became the most awarded female artist ever at this year's Grammys with 28 lifetime wins.)

Beyoncé's note to Swift read, 'Congratulations on your Grammy. It was great seeing you Sunday night. Thank you for always being so supportive. Sending love to you and your family. B'

Bey opened up to Harper's Bazaar about her hopes for this new decade of her life. 'My wish is for my 40s to be fun and full of freedom. I want to feel the same freedom I feel on stage every day of my life. I want to explore aspects of myself I haven’t had time to discover and to enjoy my husband and my children. I want to travel without working. I want this next decade to be about celebration, joy, and giving and receiving love. I want to give all the love I have to the people who love me back.'
