No, That Crazy Beyoncé Interview Isn’t Real

The German magazine NEON has released a statement apologizing for publishing an interview with Beyoncé they discovered after the fact was fabricated by a freelancer named Ingo Mocek. How did they figure it out? Because it is insane. A sample:


Interviewer: Is your life easier since you are multimillionaire?

Beyonce: The fear of the student, have no future, being dependent on her boyfriend, objectively weigh heavier than the fears that torment me. Only music from subjective feeling arises — and subjective fears, many musicians have lost. We feel pain and depression, just like other people. What separates us, is perhaps the price of butter. But all that is essential, I feel like every hard working woman.

Then again, this is way more interesting than anything we’ve heard Beyoncé actually say. Not to be condoning fraud or anything, but if Ingo Mocek happens to have revealing, fake interviews with any other famous people, we’d certainly check them out.
