Beyoncé causes couple to be stuck on ferris wheel while filming music video

If you go to the fairground you expect to run into some friends or complete strangers who can’t stand up straight because they’ve been spinning on some crazy ride for the past half hour.

You don’t expect to run into a music superstar like Beyoncé – but that’s what happened at Coney Island amusement park.

Imagine the look on your face as you stumble off the spinning teacups to see Beyoncé and her crew filming for her new music video in the exact same place you are.

The fair, near New York came to a halt while Queen Beyoncé walked in with some friends and a camera crew and decided she wanted to film her music video on the Cyclone rollercoaster.


The star, who was only at the fair for 45 minutes caused the entire place to turn into a frenzy as fans were screaming at her the entire time she was there according to the New York Daily news.

Moving from the Cyclone rollercoaster the diva decided she wanted to get a few shots on the Ferris Wheel which proved unlucky for a couple already on the ride.

Beyoncé, a perfectionist had the ride stationary for the best part of 30 minutes while getting make-up applied with photographer photographer Terry Richardson.

Meanwhile a couple who were enjoying the ride to begin with were left sitting, waiting somewhere we imagine pretty high up while Beyoncé got herself sorted.

Splash News reported that the couple were left visibly shaken after being let off the ride with the woman apparently seen in tears.


Once being let off the ride the couple quickly left the park and didn’t hang around to see Beyoncé – who had caused all the drama – although it wasn’t done on purpose.

Beyoncé hadn’t been aware of the incident at the time and continued trying out other rides around the park while fans continued to scream at her throughout.

The ‘Crazy in Love’ star is currently working on her next album which will be her fifth but has yet to announce a release date for it.

Watch Beyoncé perform ‘Grown Woman’ at ‘Chime For Change’ on the 1st of June this year.
