When Tatum showed up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
this past week, he revealed how he got Beyonce to join him on the show
. "I won't even tell you what I had to do to essentially get her assistant's phone number," Tatum said, admitting that he had never met the diva before she joined him onstage. "I didn't even have the intention of her coming ... I wanted to bring like a cardboard cutout of Beyonce out, just to be funny, and then ultimately I ended up having to meet Beyonce doing Beyonce and that was definitely the most terrifying thing I've ever done."
