For Beyonce fans, meeting her could be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, she is an otherworldly megafauna who doesn’t appear to be human at all, the perfect vision of talent, beauty, and all around awesomeness. On the other, meeting her in person is probably pretty terrifying: What would you say? What would you do? Would you give her an awkward hug, run away without saying anything, or simply turn around and vomit on yourself? Depending on your level of fandom, it’s hard to say.
All things considered, we don’t think the guy from this story is actually a fan — more like an unsuspecting person that happened to be sitting by her at a basketball game (omg) and happened to catch her eye (OMG). What happened next was a moment made for the Internet, and Beyonce fan or not, it will make you laugh out loud.
Jay Z and Beyocne have a long history of attending basketball games together.
The pair love to sit court side and watch the sport that they both enjoy, and there are dozens of adorable photos of them doing so over the years.
Here they are, checking out the Brooklyn Nets play the Miami Heat at the Barclays Center.
There’s just something about these two that makes them look like they belong here — and together.

But Jay and Bey fans know that times haven’t always been easy.
Take, for instance, the recent release of Beyonce’s Lemonade, an album almost exclusively dedicated to the pair’s marital struggles and Jay’s infidelity.
For awhile, many wondered if they would divorce.
But then, they showed up together during Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland a couple of weeks ago, looking as in love as they ever have.
And something hilarious happened that night, too.
Notice anything strange about his photo?
hat’s right: This man got caught doing the open-mouthed stare by Bey herself.
Huffington Post tweeted this photo, along with the caption “Never look Beyonce in the eyes, you fool.”
The tweet quickly went viral — so fast, in fact, that Steve Cespedes (the dude in the photo) actually saw it while he was at the game.
He worked up the courage to show it to Beyonce, and she thought it would be hilarious for him to tweet this as a follow-up. He did, with the caption “Who’s staring now?”
You’ve got to love Beyonce’s sense of humor on this one.
And also, the notoriously mysterious and private star turns out to be pretty nice and unassuming, after all.
With the year she’s had and the pressure she’s under, one thing is for sure.
Every once in awhile, Bey has got to get in a laugh or two.
