Beyonce’s Apology to Fans for Canceled Show: Handwritten Letter or Pure Poetry?

Beyoncé didn’t become a Queen by divulging all her most precious secrets. She did, however, learn that to keep the peace with her people every monarch must extend the occasional olive branch — and that’s exactly what Bey did after canceling her show in Antwerp for the pregnancy-rumor-fueling excuse that she was dehydrated and suffering from exhaustion. On her website, Beyoncé posted this handwritten letter that appears more like lyrics or stanzas of poetry than your average, PR rep-approved, fan-facing apology.

“I’ve never postponed a show in my life,” she writes, further supporting the rampant rumors of baby number two – if she’s never done it before, what Earth-shattering reason could there be to do it now but a tiny human growing in her womb? And the rest of the letter is sweet and genuine, promising fans that B will “make it up to them” and adding that she’s “feeling much better now/ And I’m ready to give you a great show.”


Whether or not Beyoncé is with child, she’s showed that she truly understands the reason she gets to run the world: her hopelessly devoted fans.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
