Driving While Texting
Mrs.Carter recently got a ticket because her ooh so smart self was texting and driving!!!
Beyonce may be receiving a call from Oprah soon and it isn’t to be featured on her talk show. Oprah, who endorsed the ‘No Texting While Driving’ campaign, is probably upset that her friend Beyonce ignored the rules, as she was recently pulled over for texting while driving.
But even beauty and a superstar status couldn’t get the singer out of a ticket with the NYPD. As a result, Beyonce, who recently obtained her driver’s license, received what us regular folks would have gotten, a $100 ticket.
According to a source, “Beyoncé was really embarrassed because she only recently got her driver’s license.” In an effort to get out of the situation, as most celebs do, the superstar is said to have used her celebrity status to avoid receiving a ticket.
“She tried to charm the cop and told him she had no idea that texting while driving was against the law,” said the insider. But apparently the cop has been living under a rock and had no idea who the multiplatinum selling artist was and gave her a ticket anyway.
I’m sure this was a blow to Mrs. Carter’s ‘Ego’. But, even mega-superstars like Beyonce have to follow the rules sometimes.
