Tatum Thinks Beyoncé Is ‘Untouchable’
The ‘Magic Mike XXL’ star was joined by the ‘XOXO’ hitmaker when he performed her hit ‘Run The World’ on comedy show ‘Lip Sync Battle’ but admits the pair aren’t that close. He told Entertainment Tonight: “We’re not down like that with Beyoncé. She’s so untouchable. It’s amazing.
“If I ever get to meet her again, I have to dress up like her. Just to make it normal.” Meanwhile, the 35-year-old actor – who performed on the show alongside his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum – previously revealed he was “terrified” when the songstress joined him on stage.
He shared: “I won’t even tell you what I had to do to essentially get her assistant’s phone number. I didn’t even have the intention of her coming … I wanted to bring like a cardboard cutout of Beyonce out, just to be funny, and then ultimately I ended up having to meet Beyoncé doing Beyoncé and that was definitely the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.”
However, they did share a brief text conversation afterwards to arrange a proper meeting. He added: “I said, ‘Hi!’ And she goes, ‘Hey, that was really funny. See ya!’ But she did text afterwards and she was like, ‘Hey, I would love to meet you guys and hang out when you’re not looking like me and so terrifying.”
