The singer was wowing fans at her Tidal X: 1015 performance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in New York City on Saturday when a minor injury occurred

Nothing can come between Beyoncé and an amazing performance, not even a bit of blood.

The 35-year-old singer was wowing fans at her Tidal X: 1015 performance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in New York City on Saturday when her dangling earring seemed to accidentally get torn from her ear. Although she noticed some blood from the injury during the song “Haunted,” she continued to finish out the show unfazed.

Fans speculated that the singer’s long ponytail had gotten caught in the earring.

“Poor Yonće. Her ear lobe was ripped in half and bleeding and she still gave a stellar performance,” said one audience member on Twitter.

Another tweeted, “@Beyonce is a true performer because I’m pretty sure her braid has gotten caught in her earrings. And she bleeding down her ear #TIDALX1015.”

Beyoncé’s long braided ponytail translated to the stage from her red carpet appearance for the charity event for her husband’s music streaming service.


She wore a sheer dress with an off-the-shoulder sleeve and adorned throughout with black embellishments. An intricate choker that covered her entire neck gave the ensemble a “wow” effect.

Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and more also performed at the event to raise funds for the Robin Hood Foundation, which benefits education initiatives.
