She told Miss Vogue magazine: ”I used to pretend I was the fifth member of Destiny’s Child. She saw us, smiled and began walking over. We both turned to see if Jay Z or someone was nearby. She said, ‘Hi,’ and told us that she thought we were beautiful. I think I said, ‘Can I just hold you?”’

*Police in the U.K. have launched an investigation into a batch of fake tickets for Beyonce’s shows in Manchester, England this month amid fears almost $45,000 was fleeced from her fans.
The singer played two concerts in the city this week, but following the gigs, local authorities are probing a potential con involving nearly 300 tickets for the shows.
It is believed that more than 140 sets of fake passes worth $160 per ticket were sold, most in pairs, generating a total profit of $45,000.
Victims were unaware they had been conned until they arrived at the venue for the show only to be informed their tickets were counterfeit.
