Beyoncé performs through ear injury at TIDAL X: 1015 concert

Beyoncé was a trooper during the TIDAL X: 1015 concert in Brooklyn on Saturday night: While performing her Fifty Shades of Grey song “Haunted” for the crowd at the Barclays Center, she remained unfazed after ripping her ear lobe on stage. 

It seems as though her earring was somehow ripped from her lobe, but Queen Bey only considered the blood briefly — neither her voice nor her stage presence faltered because of it.

Watch footage of the moment, as shot by an audience member, below. 


The concert was held in support of the Robin Hood Foundation, which calls itself “New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization.” Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, and Lauryn Hill were also among the roster of performers.
