When you’re Beyoncé, you only travel via private jet, Bentley, and heavenly clouds (or so the Beyhive would like us to believe). Alas, in her latest stop on her Let’s Make That Coin tour (also known as On The Run II) with husband Jay-Z, the stage fucked up, and the only way for Bey to get down was from a ladder even the most basic of us bitches could find over on aisle 13 at the local Home Depot. The HORROR and COMMONALITY of it all!
Bey and Jay were in Warsaw, Poland doing a show, and one of the moving stages had clearly heard enough of her warbling out “Halo” because it just tossed in the towel and said, “Boss lady, I’m punching out for the day. Deuces.” The only way for Bey to get down from the stage was if she hiked a leg and went down the ladder her minions propped against the broken set piece. You can see for yourself she didn’t exactly like that idea:

I kinda love how she keeps a smile on the entire time when you know, just KNOW, she is saying, “Where the hell is Michelle? Normally we would just use her as a human emergency slide when shit like this happened in the Destiny’s days. What the fuck do you want me to do with this common piece of LAWN equipment??” After a solid TWO minutes of cajoling her that nobody would try and goose her on the way down, Bey finally started her descent. If you look at it from this angle, it seems like the mishap happened at the tail end of the show:

I’m sure it’s only a matter of hours before some stagehand goes rogue and renames that ladder the Stairway To Heaven and hawks it on Ebay to a willing Beyhiver for $20,000. Just kidding. Bey herself will do that as a Tidal exclusive!
