Beyoncé has suffered a potentially painful accident during a concert in Montreal when her hair got caught in one of the fans that form part of her stage show.


In a word: YEOW! Beyoncé suffered a (literally) hair-raising emergency on stage in Montreal Monday night, when her long locks somehow got caught in a stage fan — necessitating a crowd of security, handlers, and eventually some scissors to cut her free.

The superstar was singing "Halo" at the time of the accident. Remarkably, she did not stop the performance; rather, she calmly sat down and continued with the tune as the stage crew attempted to free her.

Thankfully, the fan did not appear to be running at the time — otherwise, we're sure she would have punctuated that song with a shriek! However, as anyone with long hair knows, it's never fun to get tangled up in this manner; and at the very least it's a bit on the embarrassing side.

Well, at least we can rest easy knowing she's got access to the best hairstylists to fix this little mishap!

Bey later commented on the incident with a game sense of humor. On Instagram, she posted some handwritten lyrics about the ordeal, including the gem, "I felt my hair was yankiiiiin/ From the fan that's always hatiiiiin."
