Channing Tatum reveals how Beyoncé really felt about dancing next to him during Lip Sync Battle

As far as I'm concerned, Beyoncé can do no wrong.

Apparently, Channing Tatum doesn't feel the same way, since he's calling Queen Bey out for allegedly blowing him off after their surprise performance together on Lip Sync Battle.

"That is the first time I ever met her — right there," Tatum told Ellen DeGeneres Thursday. "I won’t even tell you what I had to do to essentially get her assistant’s phone number. Or text her. I was texting her. I didn’t even have the intention of her coming."

He continued, "I was like, 'Hmm, who can I bring out? I know Beyoncé's not gonna come.' So I wanted to bring a cardboard cutout of Beyoncé just to be funny, and then ultimately I ended up having to meet Beyoncé [while] doing Beyoncé."

Surprise! Beyoncé showed up and did the dance to "Run the World (Girls)" alongside Tatum... though it seems like she didn't love doing it.

"That was it," Tatum recalled about his interaction with Bey following their performance. "I said hi and she goes, 'Hey, that was really funny. See ya!'"

She followed up later with a text, he added, reading, "Hey, I would love to meet you guys and hang out when you’re not looking like me [like it's] so terrifying."

Even though Beyoncé was apparently terrified of Tatum, he still has as much reverence for her as most of us do.

"You know she exists, but you never see her until all a sudden, you’re like, 'It happened, wait, that was her, right?' And then you always know she’s somewhere in the world [and] can reach out and touch you," he remembered.
