AceShowbiz - While paparazzi annoys celebrities most of the time, this wasn't the case for Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z during their recent outing. The couple was seen laughing at a photographer's joke in a video that was taken when they were leaving a restaurant in Santa Monica, California.
Posted by The Hollywood Fix, the footage featured the "Renaissance" artist and the hip-hop mogul exiting Giorgio Baldi and heading to their vehicle when paparazzi swarmed them. At one point, one of the photographers yelled, "Beyonce!" Another one added, "B to the A! I mean, B to the C- whatever." That prompted the couple to softly laugh at the paparazzo.
Someone else later shouted, "Take care, Beyonce. I love you. You run the world remember that." The Grammy-winning artist could be heard thanking the person.
Bey indeed had an incredibly successful past year. The pop icon set a new record for the most Grammy wins after bagging four awards out of her nine nominations at the 65th Grammy Awards earlier this month. Beyonce surpassed the late Hungarian orchestral conductor Georg Solti for the most Grammy wins with a total of 32.
That night, she took home the prize Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for "Renaissance", which was presented by James Corden. "I'm trying to not be too emotional," said an overcome Beyonce as she took the stage to accept the award. "I want to thank God for protecting me," she added, before thanking her mom and dad "for loving me and pushing me."
The 41-year-old went on thanking "the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre." She also dedicated her win to her late uncle Jonny, who inspired the album.
Despite the record-breaking win, Beyonce failed to snag two of the most coveted prizes of the night as she lost out to Lizzo for Record of the year and to Harry Styles for Album of the Year. While discussing the matter, Jay-Z didn't seem to be too upset with the results as he saw it as "a marketing thing."
He explained to Elliott Wilson during an interview for Tidal, "I remove myself from the process and hope they just get it right. It got to the point where I was like, it's just a marketing thing. You go, you got an album out and it could help the sales go up."
Still, Jigga believes that Bey's "Renaissance" deserved to win Album of the Year. "Look what it's done to the culture," he argued, "Look how the energy of the world moved. They play her whole album in the club. I don't know if I've ever seen that. The whole entire joint - like, everything?! Every remix is amazing. Everyone's inspired. It has inspired the world. Every remix is better than the other one."
