Beyonce took a very expensive hot tub dip, and social media is not impressed. The singer decided to pour a $20,000 bottle of wine into that tub, and the Internet bubbled over with annoyance, reported E! News.
Initially the reaction was favorable to Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé’s “Feeling Myself” music video. It first hit the air waves via Tidal, which is Jay Z’s streaming service. But after getting put up on YouTube and subsequently taken down, enough of the Internet has seen it to respond.
In particular, social media is storming over the sequence in the video that shows Beyonce relaxing in a hot tub as she pours a very expensive bottle of wine into the water. And it’s not Pink Duck either.
Instead, the bottle is labeled Armand de Brignac, which costs between $300 to thousands dollars. Twitter tweaked out.
“Even just $1,000 could have completely changed someone’s life you know? Like a chance at college or maybe finally being able to eat lunch. So seeing Beyoncé pour out a $20,000 bottle into a pool is a slap in the face to me.”
Several social media posts suggested that Beyonce donate the money in an attempt to appease her fans.
“she could have used that 20 thousand to impact more lives in a positive manner.”
“she knows there are better uses for that amount of money/that level of ostentatious display of wealth.”
“yep. like. i can see blowing money when ur first successful…but what that 1 bottle cost could literally change people’s lives.”
But others joked about Queen Bey’s behavior, despite the buzzing in her hive of followers.
“when someone asks where I wanna be in the future I just show them the scene where beyonce poures a $20K bottle of champagne into the hot tub. [sic]”
As for the champagne shown in the music video itself? Beyonce’s husband Jay Z happens to own the brand along with Tidal, reported Yahoo.
That made it highly profitable product placement for Jay Z while Beyonce also earned extra attention on social media.
And the two are intertwined not just in business but also in health. They also share a personal trainer, Marco Borges, who advised them on their highly publicized 22-day vegan diet cleanse, as the Inquisitr reported.
CEO of 22 Days Nutrition, which includes the 22-Day Revolution food plan, Borges clarified that he views it as a lifestyle.
“It’s not a diet but rather a way of life which starts with habit formation over 22 days. With most diets you see weight loss and then as soon as the program ends the weight slowly starts to add back up again. With The 22-Day Revolution you’ll experience weight loss, improved sleep, clear skin, increased energy, improved sex drive and more.”
