Would you go crazy if you saw Beyonce in the flesh? A bunch of Norwegian fans did just that when Bey and Jay Z were mobbed by fans while trying to make their way to an awaiting ride – and all the madness was captured on video!
Oh the price of fame. Having millions of people around the world love and worship you means everywhere you go, throngs of fans will be waiting. So for Beyonce and Jay Z, that means double the mania. The couple learned this in Norway on May 27, and the craziness was all caught on video, showing the madness that follows them everywhere they go.
Beyonce & Jay Z Mobbed By Fans In Norway
The incident was captured on video from three different angles, but they all show one thing – that people go crazy in the presence of the power couple. Beyonce, 33, gives a nervous look to the camera as she tightly grips Jay’s hand before setting forth into the sea of fans and paparazzi.
With a coffee cup in her other hand and several burly bodyguards surrounding her, she and her 45-year-old husband try to make the short dash to their awaiting van. But with so many people blocking their way, it was no easy task to go those 15 feet.
An Instagram video shows the couple attempting to leave the Tidal headquarters in Oslo, but apparently word spread fast that the couple were in the building and next thing you know, it’s a mob scene. Video footage from an upper floor of the building shows the couple’s van attempting to drive away, but the crowd of fans and shutterbugs makes it quite a challenge. People are pounding on the windows, blocking the way and doing just about anything to get a glimpse or a picture of the glam A-listers.
Beyonce On The Price Of Fame
The video opens with her narrating “I sometimes wish I could just be anonymous and walk down a street just like everyone else.”
“But now that I’m famous it’s really really difficult to do very simple things. I think it’s the hardest thing to give up” she continues.
It’s hard for us to shed a tear for Beyonce though. So goes the high life of being one of the world’s most famous and sought after women. What’s a few moments of getting mobbed by adoring fans while you head in a luxury van to your private plane to take you somewhere new and glamorous. We’ll take that trade-off!
