Beyoncé’s increased online presence has allowed her to connect with her fans on a deeper level. In one of her latest messages, she shouted out 16-year-old Ton Do-Nguyen for his remake of her music video Countdown. In the message, she took a clip of the remake and added the caption “Brilliant. I Think he did this video better than I did :).”
Nguyen was elated to hear the singer appreciated his work. “The very moment of seeing my face on Beyonce’s website had to be the best moment of my life,” the teen said. “I can’t even find words to describe how I felt. Knowing that my number one idol, the Queen B, had merely seen my video was enough to send me over the moon.”
The video was uploaded on July 9 and has over 858,000 views. Beyoncé isn’t the only one highlighting the video; it has been seen on the Today Show, MTV and several other news outlets.
While Nguyen is basking in the excitement of his idol praising his work, Beyoncé is allegedly dealing with some family drama. According to the National Enquirer, Beyoncé’s younger sister Solange Knowles called her out about her friendship with Kim Kardashian. “In Solange’s eyes, Beyoncé is a stand-out star, a premier singer of our time, whereas Kim is just a reality TV star who only got famous after a sex tape was leaked,” a source told the tabloid. “So she called Beyoncé out on it, and they had a fight over Kim. It culminated with Beyoncé telling Solange she can be friends with whomever she wants.”
The article also states Kardashian has been buying gifts for Beyoncé’s infant daughter to get closer to the “Love on Top” singer. She reportedly bought the baby a $5,000 bracelet with the engraving “Love Auntie Kim” and, according to the Enquirer, Beyoncé thought it was “too much.”
