Beyonce reworks Halo lyrics to joke about onstage fan incident

BEYONCE has poked fun at herself by revamping the lyrics to her hit song HALO to acknowledge her hair drama at a concert in Canada on Monday (22Jul13).

The Crazy In Love hitmaker had crouched down on the edge of the stage at the Bell Center in Montreal to belt out the ballad when her long locks got swept up into the blades of an industrial-sized fan positioned in front of the audience pit.

She continued to perform as assistants and security guards came to her rescue and after the gig, Beyonce made light of the situation via a post on her Instagram.com page.

She shared a photo of her handwritten lyrics for the reworked version of Halo, which read: "Gravity can't begiiiin/to pull me out of the fan again/I felt my hair was yankiiin/From the fan that's always hatiiiin... I got snatched (sic)!"

The incident reportedly occurred as Beyonce tried to sing with an audience member.

A source tells UsMagazine.com, "Bey's hair got caught in the fan because she went downstage to an area she normally doesn't go for a fan... There was a girl in the front who was holding up a sign with a bucket list on it of all the things she wanted to do with her life. It was things like, 'graduate from college' and all the boxes were checked except the last one, which was, 'Sing With Beyonce!'

"Beyonce was so moved she went down into the pit to sing Halo with the girl to give her her final wish. She wasn't even thinking of the fan - she was focused on the girl she was trying to do something nice for and it was unprompted. It really came from a good place."
