Beyonce was accused of having 'a fifth-grade education'
It’s not often you hear a bad word said about Beyonce Knowles, but that all changed this weekend when TV presenter Wendy Williams dissed the singer for being unintelligent.
During Wendy’s talk show, which aired on 6 December, she slammed the singer saying Beyonce ‘sounds like she has a fifth-grade education.’ The comment came while Wendy discussed the upcoming documentary on the star’s life.
Wendy told her audience: ‘I am a Beyonce fan. I’m going to watch her upcoming documentary, because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning, so I’ll be able to understand what she says.
‘You know Beyonce can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth-grade education.’
According to Us Weekly this received an angry response forcing Wendy to defend herself adding: ‘Excuse me, I just said I was a fan. But we have to call a spade a spade.’
Beyonce has so far kept a dignified silence and instead spent the weekend at Miami Beach taking fun photos at the Art Basel contemporary art fair.
As she playfully posed next to a colourful collection of art, Bey kept all eyes on her, and those incredibly toned legs, in a floral playsuit accentuated with pink patent heels.
She continued to show off her recently restyled locks in the pictures posted on her Instagram account, wearing her hair in a top knot with her fringe perfectly in place. For accessories, Beyonce wore a large bag and played photographer with two cameras.
The star was joined by her close friend and former band mate, Kelly Rowland, who also got in on the photo action, playing and posing along.
The duo had spent the previous evening partying with Jay-Z at The Standard Hotel for The Wrinkles of the City Havana Cuba event. Beyonce covered up for the night in a long-sleeved, floor-length dress with metallic lines while her husband wore square-shaped sunnies and a quilted bomber jacket over a white shirt and trousers.
