Beyoncé and Jay Z made a few Beliebers a little angry on Wednesday night during a performance on their recently launched “On the Run” tour, and if I’m honest, I think their anger is misplaced. And by “they” I’m not talking about Bey.
A series of mugshots were shown with Jay Z’s “Izzo” playing in the background. And then the music stopped and Justin Bieber’s famed mugshot appeared. And then?
Then, according to the Mirror, Beyoncé stated that “Even the greatest can fall.”
Cue a rush of angry Bieber fans! Oh, the humanity! (Okay, so not all angry, as seen below)
Okay, look- I totally get that Beyoncé and Jay Z stopped the show and gave Bieber’s mugshot emphasis. And then the pause in music was punctuated with a statement. But Beliebers! Beyoncé said “even the greatest…”
That implies Bieber is the greatest!
Not sure I’d use that to describe Bieber, but hey, it’s Beyoncé’s world and I’m just living in it. I do know that before Justin’s mugshot was shown, there were some pretty big names on the screen. And then up goes Bieber. So, not only is he in good company but Beyoncé calls him “the greatest.”
I really don’t understand what the Beliebers are so upset about. Sure, “the greatest” is followed with “fall”- implying that he has fallen? Is that what the fuss is about? Whatever it is, I’m only making the case that Beliebers should rejoice. Because whether or not is was said in jest or not, Bey called your dude “the greatest.”
And besides, Bill Gates has yet to “fall.” Not really. And he certainly didn’t in the years after this mugshot of him. Or if he has, I’d like to “fall” too, because apparently that implies I’ll “fall” into a billion dollars. And Tupac? A legend. I rest my case.
Bieber fans- step back, take a breath and with a little perspective it’s clear Beyoncé is not necessarily your enemy.
