YouTube Re:View: #Beychella, a magician’s spell & autocomplete interview
Welcome to our YouTube Re:View. This week we celebrate Queen B’s spectacular performance at the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, sob uncontrollably thanks to a magician and take a trip to a hotel somewhere far into the future…
Beyoncé reigns at Coachella
Unless you have been living under a rock all week, you may have seen the hashtag #Beychella floating around. The Queen of R&B worked hard for that hashtag after performing 26 songs for two hours straight without even pausing for a breath. Rumours have it that she even got her nails changed mid-way through the concert. As one of the hosts in the video notes: “Everyone at Coachella was working for Beyoncé”.
No video would be the same without some controversy. But not the kind you might expect in a video talking about Beyoncé . Should mayonnaise and ketchup be combined to form Mayochup? We wonder what option Beyoncé would choose.
