Chance The Rapper showed us last Sunday that celebrities, too, can be die-hard fans. He turned into a fangirl (figuratively, of course) when Beyonce surprised him while he?s being interviewed backstage at the MTV VMA 2016.
Real name Chancelor Bennett, Chance The Rapper gave out a delayed shock after realizing it was the Lemonade artist who tapped his back. For a second, his surprised look reminds us of those screaming girls during a Beatles concert back in the day. ?That?s my life!? he exclaimed over the microphone.
Recovering from the initial shock of seeing a superstar, he gave Beyonce a good hug. Beyonce also gave the interviewer a sweet small talk after discovering they?re both a Virgo. Meanwhile, Chance The Rapper?started to horse around the camera like a real happy fan long after her majesty Beyonce and entourage had gone away.
Check his fangirl moment here.
Yes, Britney did make a splashing comeback on stage at the VMA. You can also say Rihanna stole the show. And Beyonce is Beyonce. But it?s the unexpected, unscripted things like the Chance The Rapper backstage fangirl moment that will remind us of this year?s event. Remember, Kanye West grabbing the mic from a girl named Swift in VMA 2009?
A Drake Supporter?
If you?re paying close attention at the start of the video interview, Chance The Rapper was talking to Drake. He was vying for a Drake win for the best video category (Beyonce?s Formation snagged it). Drake would win instead the best hip-hop video this year.
Other major winners for VMA 2016 are: ?Hold Up? (Beyonce) for best female video; ?This Is What You Came For? (Rihanna, Calvin Harris) for best male video; and ?Heathens? (Twenty-One Pilots) for best rock video.
Chance The Rapper was best remembered this year for releasing Coloring Book last May. Although the album failed to dislodge Drake?s Views at the Billboard charts, the former made history. Chance The Rapper Coloring Book became the first streaming-only album to rank in Billboard charts.
