Grammy-winning singer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter proved it takes much more than a mechanical fan to make her lose her cool during a Montreal concert last night (July 22).
Footage of Bey having her hair caught in a fan surfaced online Tuesday.
Some fans managed to film the incident and Beyonce later posted a video of it to Instagram. Here’s what happened — the singer was perched on the side of the stage right next to an electrical fan. As she sang the lyrics to “Halo,” she jolted her head back suddenly and the lengths of her hair immediately got snarled into the fan. Various team members jumped up immediately to try and free Bey’s hair — and Beyonce just kept singing! She literally didn’t break a sweat and continued to perform her show-stopping song like a true professional. (Hollywood Life)
Shortly after the incident took place, Bey joined in on the laughs by penning a song about it.
Afterward, she posted a song for the fan on Instagram (to the melody of “Halo”): Gravity can’t begiiiiiin /to pull me out of the fan again. /I felt my hair was yankiiiiiin /From the fan that’s always hatiiiiin /Virgin Remy & Malaysiiiiiaaaaaaannnn /Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! /I got snatched /2 snaps Goodnight All, B” (Necole Bitchie)
Last week, Bey snapped at a fan for recording her performance.
On Friday, Jay-Z’s wife and B.I.C.’s mom took her Mrs. Carter Show to Atlanta, where she asked the crowd to do the honors on her 2006 hit “Irreplaceable.” But when one fan tried to snap a photo of Bey rather than singing, “To the left, to the left,” she ordered him, sort of jokingly, to “Put the damn camera down!” (The Hollywood Gossip)
A few days prior, Bey and husband Jay-Z were spotted at a New York City Trayvon Martin rally.
Platinum-selling power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé joined the crowd demanding “Justice for Trayvon Martin” at a Saturday rally where the pair greeted the slain teen’s mother. The celebrity backing on a blistering Manhattan day came after Sybrina Fulton proclaimed her son’s innocence and urged a federal civil rights prosecution of George Zimmerman. Fulton, choked up by the racially diverse crowd’s cheers and support, had trouble speaking before declaring that 17-year-old Trayvon did not deserve to die. “He was a child,” she said outside 1 Police Plaza. “Don’t take my word for it. He had a drink and candy.” (New York Daily News)
