WOMAN LEFT IN TEARS AFTER GETTING STUCK ON CONEY ISLAND FERRIS WHEEL FOR 30 MINUTES... BECAUSE BEYONCÉ WAS DOING HER MAKE-UP
A woman was left in tears on Thursday after getting stuck on Coney Island’s Ferris wheel. And according to reports, it was all because of Beyoncé. The singer was at the New York amusement park to film her latest music video. And for part of it, the 31-year-old decided to take a spin on the Wonder Wheel with photographer Terry Richardson. But it seems that operators neglected to realize that a couple were still on the ride when Beyoncé and her crew hopped on it. The star had her make-up touched up before setting off, and it was half an hour before anyone realized two people were stuck. When they finally made it back down, the couple were visibly shaken. The woman involved was seen in tears as she stepped out of her pod and she and her companion hurried off. It seems Beyoncé was unaware of the events unfolding as she continued her tour of Coney Island.
