She may have debuted a shorter hairdo, but this certainly did nothing to defuse fans’ anger after American Idol guest Beyonce Knowles arrived late for a V Festival performance. Nothing like a half hour of waiting in the rain to annoy an otherwise excited crowd!
Beyonce is no Justin Bieber — she typically does a pretty good job of sticking to deadlines and arriving at concerts on time. But this was definitely not the case the other night, when the celeb arrived nearly half an hour late for a performance at Britain’s V Festival. Waiting this long for a performance would be annoying enough in decent weather, but the attendees were forced to sit through a rain storm before having the opportunity to listen to Beyonce.
Finally, after a long wait, fans were treated to a rousing rendition of Beyonce’s hit song Girls. But before she could belt out the first note, Bey was greeted with plenty of boos from the crowd. The reception was not entirely negative, however, with several cheers also arriving in time for Beyonce’s performance. Still, the diva clearly could tell that fans were annoyed, which is why she later made a point of apologizing to the crowd. “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?”
We’re not sure the booing fans agreed with the part about the rain “feeling good.” But we are glad to learn that Beyonce at least bothered to apologize for her late arrival. Unfortunately, not all her celeb counterparts are this gracious.
Would you have booed Beyonce if you had been in the crowd? Leave a comment and let us know!
