OMG did Tina Knowles flat out LIE to all of us while accepting Beyonce’s award at the BET Awards on June 26?! The singer’s mom claimed Bey had to jet out of the theater after her performance to get to London for a concert…but her London tour date isn’t for almost a WEEK. Naturally, fans are totally livid!
Beyonce, 34, totally won the night at the BET Awards with an epic, surprise performance to open the show, but she didn’t stick around afterward to accept her award for Video of the Year later on. According to her mom, Tina Knowles, who stepped in to take home the trophy, it’s because the singer had to rush to London for her Formation tour. But, wait: Angry fans have pointed out that her tour date in London isn’t until July 2! What gives?!
While accepting her daughter’s award on stage, Tina explained that Beyonce couldn’t be there to do it herself because she was rushing right from the show to her flight to the UK. Fans immediately began flooding Twitter with confused, angry tweets, pointing out that Bey doesn’t even have to be in London until July 2, calling her and her mom liars for the false information.
But Tina didn’t totally lie, you guys: Bey is due in England on June 28 for a show in Sunderland, so it would make sense that she’d have to get there by tomorrow, the 27th, for rehearsals and the like.
It didn’t stop fans from going on a rampage over the situation, though. Come on, guys, don’t be so hard on Bey: She completely owned the show when she took the stage for a last-minute performance of “Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar! Her dance moves, vocals and look were all totally on-point…we can’t hate on her for leaving early when she has such a busy week coming up across the pond!
