And the “#BeyGood” season continues.
Beyoncé stopped by a Wal-Mart in Tewksbury, Mass., on Friday, shocking hundreds of holiday shoppers with her presence alone. But a simple appearance with hugs and smiles to customers around wasn’t the only surprise Beyoncé had in store, according to media reports.
After a brief introduction over the intercom, Queen Bey wished everyone a Happy New Year and opened a tab of her own: The first $50 of everyone’s holiday shopping was on her. It was a “Merry Christmas” wish to the tune of $37,500 before the singer took the stage as part of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour.
The singer hugged some of her smallest fans and smiled at others, who snapped pictures and took video as Beyoncé made her way through the store. But Christmas would not have been complete for her without purchasing a baby doll for her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, and a copy of her fifth-self titled album.
