DJ Khaled may be one of today’s most in-demand people in the music industry, but that doesn’t mean he doesn't get starstruck. The mega producer recently admitted there’s actually one celebrity who literally leaves him speechless, and she goes by the name of Beyoncé.
In an interview with The New York Times, Khaled, who snagged himself a spot on Queen Bey’s Formation World Tour, confessed that he doesn’t talk much around the singer. “I’m very quiet. Every time I’ve ever seen her is when I’m with my brother Jay Z, and I just say, ‘Hi,’ and I look the other way so fast, and I kind of run,” Khaled said, according to the publication.
It seems like the 40-year-old, who’s worked with some of the biggest names in today’s music industry, including Kanye West, Rick Ross, and Beyoncé’s man, Jay Z, knows exceptional talent when he sees it. And we can’t exactly blame him for being in awe of Queen Bey.
He’s probably still gushing over the artistic masterpiece that was Lemonade — just like the rest of us. There was also that whole bit where Bey destroys an entire city block with a baseball bat. Hmmm . . .
“I just don’t want to say nothing too much,” he said in the interview. “I’m not messing that up.”
A wise decision, Khaled. Just sit back and soak in Bey’s talent.
Do you blame DJ Khaled for being nervous around Beyoncé?
- 0% No way! I’d be speechless too.
- 0% He shouldn’t be nervous. She’s just a person like everyone else.
