She's irreplaceable

Beyoncé loves to get close to her fans, but this is ridiculous

We know that Beyoncé likes to get close to her fans, but this is ridiculous.

While singing "Irreplaceable" at a concert in San Paulo, Brazil, Sunday night, a shirtless, overzealous fan grabbed the superstar in a hug and momentarily pulled her offstage. But always the trouper (at a Montreal concert in July she continued to sing "Halo" even as a mechanical fan chomped on her weave) — she didn't miss a beat.

When she finished her song, she told the fan, "It's all right, it's all right," and shook his hand, adding,  "What's your name? Nice to meet you. Thank you, I love you, too."
