Beyonce may run the world, but she doesn’t run the weather. And perhaps she should consider that when she makes plans to play an outdoor festival in rainy England.
According to multiple reports, the “Run the World (Girls)” singer left fans stranded in the downpour for nearly half an hour as she stalled taking the stage at Britain’s recent V Festival.
Many festival-goers tweeted nasty things unsuitable for print as Sasha Fierce finally took the stage amid a chorus of boos before performing 45 minutes of her hits.
But some fans are more understanding of their Queen Bey. Twitter user @Jessica__Burden writes, “Um people boo’ed queen b at her concert for being twenty minutes late… its beyonce so chill. #royalty”
MSN reports Beyonce acknowledged the crowd’s sacrifice, saying, “Thank you all so much for waiting in the rain … Now let’s have some fun in the rain. It feels good doesn’t it?” But apparently it didn’t feel good enough, as Bey made quick work of finding some comfort food after being subjected to the frustrated crowd. After the show, she shelled out over two-grand on a Nando’s fried chicken order.
