Beyonce fans were forced to evacuate the Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina midway through the “Formation World Tour,” last night, after the event was plagued by heavy rain and lightening. While fans thought it was all over (some went back to their cars and drove away), Beyonce reemerged about an hour later when the rain stopped and continued to perform through the unfavorable weather conditions.
It reportedly cost Bey $60,000 to prolong the show but hey, that’s nothing to the queen. In other Beyonce news, the Lemonade singer took a stand against North Carolina’s Anti-LGBTQ Laws with a message posted on her site today.
As The Formation World Tour makes its stop in the Tar Heel state in the midst of such a controversial time, we think it is important for us to bring attention to those who are committed to being good and carrying on the message of equality in this core of controversy.
Among the many organizations doing the good work to get this bill overturned, there is Equality NC, a local organization dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) North Carolinians.
To accomplish these goals, Equality NC tirelessly lobbies the North Carolina General Assembly, executive branch, and local governments, broadcast LGBT news, stories and content, and mobilize our communities on issues that matter, including marriage equality, parental rights, inclusive anti-bullying policies, employment discrimination, hate violence, privacy rights, sexuality education, adoption, domestic partnerships, and HIV/AIDS.
The letter goes on to encourage fans to support equality by “donating, volunteering, becoming an ambassador, attending an event, or simply spreading the word!”

It’s also being reported, Jay Z is in the studio masterminding his own version of Lemonade, which will tell his side of the story. We’re not so sure about that tid-bit and would take it with a grain of salt.
