Is Beyoncé as nice as she seems? The answer appears to be- Yes!
Beyoncé may be sometimes known as a “Diva,” but it is her kinder, gentler side that has been making headlines lately.
When recently wrapping up a concert in Sydney, Australia, Beyoncé dedicated her song “Halo” to a young girl who was in attendance and battling leukemia.
For the first run through of the song that pays homage to a personal hero, Beyoncé acknowledged Michael Jackson, as she has done at previous concerts. Then, she invited a young girl named Chelsea on stage, and in front of the 14,000 in attendance, knelt beside her and asked if it was okay to sing her a song. Beyoncé then sang “Halo” while hugging Chelsea, and looked her eyes as she sang “I got my angel now,” before resting her head on Chelsea’s chest. She also added the child’s name to the lyric, “[Chelsea] I can see your halo, you know you’re my saving grace.” “There was not a dry eye in the house,” Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph reported.
Add that to the classy performance last week at the MTV Video Music Awards, when Beyoncé helped Taylor Swift recover from her run-in with Kanye West who, unless you’ve been living in a cave recently, you know interrupted her Best Female Video acceptance speech to say the honor was owed to Beyoncé. When the Kanye outburst left a shocked and embarrassed Taylor on stage at a loss for words, Beyoncé made it right when she went on stage to receive the Best Video trophy at the end of the night.
“Wow, this is amazing,” Beyoncé said when receiving her award. “I remember being 17-years-old and up for my first MTV award with Destiny’s Child. It was one of the most exciting moments in my life. So, I’d like for Taylor to come out and have her moment.”
Lots ‘o class…
