For all the Beyonce’ fans out there, I went to her concert. You know, you see her on TV and you think, ‘Oh man, does she really look that pretty in person?’ Yes. She does. I never realized what makes her so different until I saw her live. She’s an entertainer. She has everything. She entertained me. I gladly spent money on a suite to see her. I invited a couple of my teammates too. DeShawn Stevenson came, Caron came ‘ I watched the first eight songs or so, then went down and worked out, and went back to the suite to watch the ending.
I never go to concerts because I feel like, ‘What’s the point? You’re singing the same little songs you sing on TV.’ But Beyonce’ was out there doing her whole thing and entertaining the crowd so I have a lot of respect for her.
At the end, I got back stage. Come on, it was at the Verizon Center. The security guards know whose picture is on the building. I got all access. She gave me a hug and I had her autograph my Wizards No. 1 jersey with ‘B-E-Y-O-N-C-E’ on the back. There’s no scandal behind the hug. Me and Jay-Z are good. We’re good peoples. That’s going to be a new part of my jersey collection. Ciara and T.I. are coming and I’m going to do the same thing with the jerseys for them. But Beyonce’ is, and always will be, the originator.
