Watch Tiffany Haddish Talk About The Time She Met Beyonce
If you just met Beyonce, you're gonna tell everyone -- and I mean everyone. And if you're Tiffany Haddish, your story will probably be funnier than most. The comedian and Girls Trip standout recently made an appearance on TV One's Uncensored, and in a newly released clip from the upcoming series, Haddish spilled the beans on the celebrity-to-celebrity encounter, while not hiding one iota of her bubbly enthusiasm about meeting Queen Bee herself. You can watch the highly entertaining recount below.
As seen and told in the uncensored clip from TV One, Tiffany Haddish was introduced to Beyonce during an after-party for a Jay-Z concert. Beyonce and Haddish went back-and-forth complimenting one another, with Beyonce saying how funny Tiffany is and Haddish almost breathlessly overwhelmed with nice things to say to Beyonce. But it was shortly after their interaction that Haddish caught some first-hand drama right on the scene.
Tiffany Haddish doesn't reveal any names, but the comedian says that another actress also started talking to Jay-Z, and while doing so, she began to touch Jay-Z's chest. Beyonce, of course, wasn't having any of that. She walked straight up to the unnamed actress and basically told her, through her demeanor and her tense body language, that she better get her hand off "my man's chest." From there, Bey and the actress continued talking, and it doesn't sound like things got pleasant. Haddish isn't at liberty to disclose what went down, but she promises that "it's gonna be on the streets" and "we'll know about it" soon.
It's no secret that Beyonce and Jay-Z have had their share of marriage difficulties. Jay-Z opened up about his infidelities only a couple months ago, and he notes that he's currently trying to fix his relationship. But even when their marriage is rocky (we have to assume you've seen and listened to Lemonade by now, right?), Beyonce and Jay-Z continue to work through their troubles. They've been together for close to ten years now, and they share three children together, 6-year-old Blue Ivy and the eight-month twins, Rumi and Sir.
Meanwhile, Tiffany Haddish is celebrating a great year. She broke out in a big way with Girls Trip and its smash success over the summer, and she'll be in a slew of new movies, including All Between Us, Night School and the currently-filming The Oath, the directorial debut of The Mindy Project's Ike Barinholtz. She'll also soon appear in the TV series The Last O.G., and she can be heard in the Comedy Central animated series Legends of Chamberlin Heights. She also had a hit Showtime stand-up special released in August. Additionally, Haddish also recently published her first book, the memoir The Last Black Unicorn, which is currently sitting on the New York Times Bestseller list. So, yes, it's a good time to be Tiffany Haddish right now. And did she mention that she met Beyonce?! She's more than happy to let you know.
