Coincidentally, the big game also ran in-sync with her 43rd birthday on Sunday (Feb. 2), who immediately took to Twitter after the performance where she paid tribute to her Latin heritage. “The best birthday gift has been the support of all my fans and the most amazing and hardworking team an artist could wish for,” she gushed. “We Latinos climbed Kilimanjaro and made history tonight and we couldn’t have done it without all of you!”
Shakira later celebrated her birthday at a post-show bash and some footage has emerged online. Fans were shocked to see none other than the Queen Bee herself, Beyoncé, celebrating the moment with her friend.
Their friendship actually makes sense given that the two music icons previously joined forces when they dropped “Beautiful Liar” in 2006. In the clip, one partygoer happened to capture a shot of Bey dancing along and working her hips to the Latin vibes. Fans were shaken over the footage given how notoriously private Bey is.
However, the moment is not enough for some fans. “We need pictures and videos of these two LIVING LEGENDS now,” one fan begged on Twitter. The video also brought back recent memories from Diddy’s extravagant 50th birthday celebration where Hov was seen on camera shutting down someone trying to snap a photo of Bey. “I see she made sure Jay-Z wasn’t around before she [pulled] that phone out,” one fan joked. But for the most part, fans are just content with the knowledge that Bey was living her best life unbothered.
