Beyonce did NOT ‘photobomb’ any teen during a recent concert in Australia, despite many reports making the rounds in the media.
A photo and a GIF image showing the singer supposedly ‘photobombing’ an Australian teen during her concert Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne Park on Friday, Oct. 25 and posted on Tumblr went viral, with countless media outlets erroneously reporting that Beyonce is some sort of goddess who knows how to ‘perfectly’ photobomb a teen’s selfie.
Most were deceived by the 15-year old’s blog posts about the photo, which included, ‘I dont even know it was such a blur i just remember her bending down to me and my friend and i just turned for the photo and wowoowow it was the best moment ever like she posed its crazy i wasnt even expecting her to look at my phone or notice me in the crowd.’
But the teen in question – name Valentina – has clarified in another blog post titled THE TRUTH that she actually ASKED Bey to take a pic with her:
Okay so as most of the people that have recently followed me i have been the girl that got her selfie ”photobombed” by Beyonce when in fact i asked her for the photo so she posed and smiled as the perfect person she is!
just thought i’d clear the air haha
She then posted a link to a YouTube video of the concert which showed the moment (Watch below … the selfie took place at the 0.56 mark).
Hahaha … some little teen has pulled a Jimmy Kimmel on the internet. Thank goodness that this time around, ENTmania! didn’t fall for it.
