Pop/R'n'B diva Beyonce Knowles got into a tense situation during her "Mrs. Carter Show" Montreal concert on Monday, July 22 while performing her hit song "Halo" from the audience pit. The 31-year-old entertainer's curly locks got caught in a concert wind machine that was set-up at the edge of the stage but Bey continued singing, as an audience member and her security guy tried to pull her hair free.
Queen Bey even took the scary entanglement in stride, posting some handwritten, reworked "Halo" lyrics on her Instagram. "Gravity can't begiiiiiiiin / To pull me out of the fan again / I felt my hair was yankiiiiiiiin / From the fan that's always hatiiiiiiiin," wrote the artist, along with the actual footage of the hair-raising incident.
Before the concert fan incident, Beyonce had a situation with one concertgoer at her recent world tour show. Last May, an overzealous fan slapped her butt as she was performing "Irreplaceable" during her concert in Copenhagen, Denmark, while standing in the front row as she asked the fans to sing along with her.
Minor accidents such as what transpired Monday night on Bey's show have also happened to other concert artists with seemingly more embarrassing outcomes. Irish rock band U2 got caught inside a 40-foot (12 m) tall mirror ball lemon during the Norway stopover in their 1997 PopMart tour, while Fleetwood Mac's 70ft (21.3m) inflatable penguin failed to rise and fly over the crowd during a show back in 1977.
