Beyonce Gets Emotional Onstage in Belgium [Video]
An emotional Beyonce returned to the stage at Belgium's Sportpaleis (May 15), despite being advised by her doctors to take the night off. She had canceled a show in Antwerp the night before (May 14) due to exhaustion and dehydration and she wasn't about to disappoint fans two nights in a row -- no way, no how. A true queen never lets her subjects down multiple times!
Fan-filmed footage from the show has landed online, and Bey was visibly emotional, dabbing at her eyes and throwing the white towel into the crowd, gifting a fan with a special memento with her DNA on it. That's priceless.
She was about to launch into 'Flaws and All,' but she continued to address her adoring audience, saying, "I just have to say, I feel so good to be on the stage." She said it with conviction. We believed her.
She finished, declaring, “I have the best fans in the world. Now my doctors told me not to perform. But there was no way in the world. I just have to say, that y’all give me so much inspiration. And I just want to thank you guys. This song is for all of the Beyhive. I love y’all."
We love you, too, Bey!
Bey was beyond bummed and supremely apologetic about having to cancel in the first place, posting a note on her website explaining that she did not want to let her fans down and that it was hard for her to listen to the docs and nix the gig. She bravely and gamely soldiered on, taking the stage aka her throne the very next night.
She's no mere mortal... she's Beyonce! Learn it. Know it. Live it.
Glad you're feeling better, Mrs. Carter.
