Beyonce's Los Angeles Concert Brings Out the Celebrity Beyhive
By Lynda Brendish
Celebrities are just like us: they put on their pants one leg at a time and they also love Beyoncé.
The superstar singer brought her Formation World Tour to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on Saturday night and her loyal Beyhive -- plenty of celebrities among them -- thronged to the show with one goal in mind: to slay.
Over the course of an energetic and magnetic two-hour set, Queen Bey took her fans through her hits, stomping and splashing her way through "Freedom," a fiery rendition of "Run the World (Girls)" and the raw betrayal of "Sorry," with the audience passionately singing along to the infamous line, "You better call Becky with the good hair."
And of course, Beyoncé's celebrity devotees, like the rest of the show's attendees, were quick to get in "Formation", taking to social media to show their adoration.
Vanessa Hudgens captioned her shot simply: "Queen B."
"There are no words to describe what me and 90,000 people just witnessed and experienced!" raved Julianne Hough on Instagram. "The Queen is alive and killin it!!!! Absolutely blown away!!!!!! Can we do it all again tomorrow please?!?!"
YouTube star Lilly Singh was also excited to attend the concert. "Headed to the #FormationWorldTour to see THE queen and sip some lemonade," she wrote on Instagram, thanking American Express, who were responsible for securing tickets for Singh and other celebrities and fans. "Can't wait to feel this woman's energy and gain all the inspiration. Big shout outs to @americanexpress for hooking a sister up! Feeling all types of blessed! #AmexAccess #Bey."
Other celebs in attendance included Minka Kelly,Chloe Grace Moretz, Carla Gugino, Jessica Szohr, Kerry Washington, Holly Robinson Peete, Tia Mowry and Russian model Irina Shayk with her boyfriend Bradley Cooper.
One celebrity not seen in attendance was Beyoncé's pal Gwyneth Paltrow, who, earlier on Saturday, hosted the most adorable birthday brunch for her daughter Apple Martin with bestie Blue Ivy Carter in attendance.
