The male fan in the front row of Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour went into hysterics when she sang to him and held his hand during the “Irreplaceable” fan-interaction portion of her recent concert. The clip below, which went viral today, shows the man shaking and jumping up and down like he’s being electrocuted.
Moved by the reaction, Bey reached down to give the man a hug.
*Beyonce urged a fan at her Atlanta concert to soak in the present moment instead of spending his time trying to capture it on film.
During the part of her show where she gets audience members to sing “to the left, to the left” from “Irreplaceable,” one man had trouble participating because he was so busy trying to record it at the same time.
“You can’t even sing cause you’re too busy taping,” she said after his weak attempt. “I am in your face, baby. You gotta seize the moment,” she added.
Beyonce then gave him another chance to sing a line and he did so with gusto. “Yes, that’s much better,” she announces.
The incident comes less than two months after Beyonce chided a fan for slapping her behind during a performance of the same song, “Irreplaceable,” at her show in Copenhagen.
Beyonce’s exchange with the videographer is below.
*A man in the front row of Beyonce’s concert in Copenhagen on Sunday smacked her derriere as she worked the edge of the stage singing, “Irreplaceable,” and the clip has now gone viral.
After the slap, Bey stopped for a second, told the fan: “I will have you escorted out right now. Allright?,” and then kept singing.
According to music news site NME, he was allowed to stay for the remainder of the show at the Danish city’s venue The Forum.
Beyonce, who recently released “Grown Woman,” a single from her upcoming album, is in Europe for her Mrs. Carter World Tour, which kicked off last month in Belgrade, Serbia, and closes Aug. 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
*Rihanna’s “We Found Love” has just lodged its 10th non-consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which makes this the longest run of her career at the tally’s pole position.
Beyonce was the last female to have a single peak at 10 weeks. She did it in 2006 with “Irreplaceable.”
If “We Found Love” (featuring Calvin Harris) holds on to the top-ranked slot for another week, Rihanna will match previous records set by Puff Daddy and Faith Evans’ “I’ll Be Missing You” and Toni Braxton’s “Un-Break My Heart.”
This year, Rihanna is up for four Grammys Awards: Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for Loud, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for her songs “What’s My Name?” (featuring Drake) and “All Of The Lights” (featuring Kanye West, Kid Cudi and Fergie).
As previously reported, she will perform alongside Coldplay at the at the Grammys’ Feb. 12 telecast at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
*Last week, it was reported that Ne-Yo “regretted” giving Beyonce the catchy tune, “Irreplaceable.” But he never actually said the word. So he got on Twitter to correct the misinformation and claims he was misquoted.
“Ok. What’s this I hear about me wishing I never gave Beyonce’ Irreplaceable? Y’all ACTUALLY believe I said that? SERIOUSLY? Wow. Aiight.” He continued saying, “Believing everything you read is just as bad as letting somebody run you. Stop letting these media haters and bloggers control y’all. You wanna know ’bout me? ASK ME. You wanna know if I said somethin’ ASK ME. C’mon y’all. I KNOW you’re smarter than that.”
In other news for the songwriter/singer, he may be expecting another child pretty soon.
Blogger Sandra Rose says he and his “friend” Monyetta Shaw could be expecting another child.
Although the two are clearly more than friends, Ne-Yo claims that the two have an understanding and just keep things friendly.
“I have a friend, not a girlfriend. She’s carrying my child but knows I can’t commit. She doesn’t mind other women.”
Hmm, makes you wonder just who the “‘friend’ with benefits” is in this interesting relationship.
*In an interview with London radio station Choice FM, Ne-Yo said he now regrets giving Beyonce “Irreplaceable” to record, although does concede he may not have been able to do the track justice.
The singer/songwriter wrote the female empowerment song – about a woman who kicks her cheating boyfriend to the left – but handed it to Beyonce for her 2006 album “B’Day.”
“I honestly wrote that song for myself,” he told the station. “But that song actually taught me a very interesting lesson – men and women don’t actually think that much differently on the grand scheme of things.
“However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.”
While he regrets giving Beyonce his song, Ne-Yo recently revealed he is keen to work with her husband Jay-Z again to make a “classic” track. The two collaborated twice before – on Ne Yo’s “Call Me Crazy” and Jay’s “Minority Report.”
“Jay featured on a track of mine on my second album, and I featured on one of his on his ‘Kingdom Come’ album but we haven’t done anything since then,” he said. “Jay is a good friend, he’s a good person. Though we’ve worked together I think there’s potential for a classic record there and we haven’t really realized that potential yet.”
