You have the same number of hours in a day as the goddess Beyoncé to not do gross stuff like this. While onstage at the Tidal X 1015 concert at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center last night, Beyoncé realized her ear had been accidentally sliced open (!) during her performance. Rather than creating a hashtag celebrating how absolutely unfazed Bey was at the sight of her own blood, Twitter chose the primrose path and created #CutForBeyonce, a hashtag populated by fans jokingly or not so jokingly offering to cut themselves in honor of Queen Bey. (While bearing all the hallmarks of a bit, #CutForBeyonce might pull up some NSFW images, so be warned before clicking.) “Yes,” said Beyonce, a human being with feelings, as she checked Twitter today. “This is what I wanted. This is a fun joke and I’m glad it exists.”
