Both Tyler Perry and Beyoncé have participated in a “homecoming.”
The former, A Madea Homecoming, brings back the actor and screenwriter’s legendary character Madea for another epic movie. For the latter, Queen B’s legendary 2018 Coachella performance had her replicating an HBCU homecoming show.
But now, Perry is combining the two. According to EW, Perry strapped on a wig and squeezed into some Daisy Dukes for an incredible Beyoncé tribute at the end of his new Madea movie.
"I thought, 'There is no way that I can call this [Madea] movie 'Homecoming' and not do some sort of homage to the Queen B,'" he told the outlet.
However, before actually including the scene during the credits of his latest film, he said he needed the Queen’s blessing.
"Before anybody saw it before Netflix saw it, I sent her a clip," he added. "Is this okay?" he asked. "If not, it will never see the light of day. You say yes or no."
Perry said the green light was a huge relief for him and revealed that he filmed his version of the Coachella set on the same day he shot a graduation sequence for the movie.
"It's the most nervous I've ever been," he recalls. "That wasn't very comfortable for me, but it got done."
Tyler Perry also took to his Instagram account to thank fans for making his new Madea movie a top 10 Netflix release. “Well!! Y’all still got this old broad’s back!! What a blessing after all these years,” he captioned a screenshot of the impressive feat. “Still number one! #AMadeaHomecoming.”
