Beyonce Refuses To ‘Bow Down’ After Fan’s Onstage Tackle

MTV News breaks down four of Queen Bey's most royally composed fan moments.

There’s a reason why fans call Beyoncé “Queen Bey.” Because when it comes to snafus onstage, she pretty much always comes off as regal — whether she’s dealing with overzealous hugs or errant fans (of all sorts).

On Sunday, Bey had a bit of tumble during a performance in Sao Paulo, Brazil. While kneeling stage-side to clasp hands with adoring fans in the middle of singing “Irreplaceable,” a shirtless man wrapped his arms around the singer and pulled her from the elevated stage. Security quickly intervened, but Beyoncé kept right on singing through it all.

Later, according to USA Today, she even spoke to her bare-chested fan, telling him, “It’s all right. … Thank you, I love you, too.”

No tantrums, no diva fits, no breakdowns: Beyoncé handled the situation with the kind of grace that would make anyone “bow down.” And this isn’t the first time Queen Bey has shown some serious composure. MTV News breaks down three more moments below:

Letting a fan nab the mic is a dicey move at best — something that Beyoncé discovered during a performance a few years back when she handed the microphone to an amped-up woman in the crowd. Needless to say, said woman could not croon like Beyoncé, but instead of reacting with derision, Bey just smiled graciously and shimmied on. Simon Cowell, she ain’t.
