Hear that sound? It's Future Beyoncé, giving an Oscar speech. The multi-platinum singer has decided to get back into acting, and is reportedly on the hunt for a dramatic leading role. Makes sense, since she's already slayed the dramatic leading role that is her own life.

"She wants to land leading roles in movies and has been taking classes in New York and L.A. for the past year," a source tells Us Weekly (opens in new tab).

Let's just take a moment of silence to absorb this, and throw up a couple of these. 🙌 🙌 🙌

Ok, great. 

Of course, this isn't Beyoncé's first time in a movie. She was nominated for a Golden Globe thanks to Dreamgirls, so it's not like she isn't already a pro. But the best part of this news? Bey isn't just here to win all the awards. She wants to make a difference. "Bey's looking for an iconic dramatic role," the source says. "She wants to make a film that's socially relevant to African American rights."

It's unclear when Bey will find a project to take on, but apparently she's "always being given scripts to read."

Oh, and also she's reportedly writing a new album. Drops mic.
