Last month Tiffany Haddish posted a photo to her Instagram with Beyoncé accompanied by the caption, “@beyonce was telling me that my wig was slipping…. ? But for real she told me to have fun and I DID! #SHEREADY #thelastblackunicorn#beyonce”.
We know that Haddish is known for her story-telling, which landed her a partnership with Groupon, and behind selfie with the Queen Bey with the hilarious caption is an equally funny story. The comedienne confessed in an interview with Vulture that the photo is a result of Bey telling her to calm down and have fun at a party instead of beating a girl’s ass.
Okay, so what had happened was, something had went down with somebody at the party, right? I’m not at liberty to say what had went down at the party, but Beyoncé was just telling me to have a good time, and I was like, “No, I’m gonna end up fighting this bitch!” She was like, “No, have fun, Tiffany,” and I said, “I’m only going to have fun if you take a selfie with me.”
She said, “Okay,” and then she buried her face in my wig. We took the picture and I was like, “Is my wig slipping?” And she was like, “Mmm-hmm.” But she knew who I was! She came up to me and was like, “I think you are so funny, Tiffany Haddish.” I was like, “What? You know me?!” She said, “I’m Beyoncé.” “I KNOW!”
