Beyoncé has been enjoying some downtime after completing her UK leg of the Renaissance tour. The US star has been killing it out on the road over recent weeks, with the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Naomi Campbell, and Dua Lipa flocking to watch her do her thing on stage.
Bey has wowed crowds five times over at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with her UK dates also including Cardiff, Edinburgh, and Sunderland.
But before she gets back to what she does best across Europe, the Break My Soul hitmaker, 41, went off the grid for a dinner date with husband Jay Z, 53. Beyoncé and the rapper posed with one of her favourite chefs as they dined at Mamo Michelangelo’s restaurant in Antibes, France.
Sitting at the table, the Single Ladies vocalist looked as pretty as ever in a patterned ensemble, with a beaming Jay on the other side. Bey also went make-up free, letting her natural beauty shine through. The celebrity-favourite chef captioned his post: ‘It’s always such a pleasure to welcome you both @beyonce and Jay-Z!
Mamo is a real hit with A-listers, as his Insta feed also features pics with stars such as The Weeknd, Jennifer Lawrence, and Harrison Ford.
Taking to the comments, fans were loving seeing Bey enjoying her chill time – but there was one thing in the photo their eyes were especially drawn to.
‘That Prada iphone case! one fan commented because, yes, there Beyoncé does have a diamanté-studded Prada phone case. Of course she does. It seemed the couple went all out for their loved-up dinner, as there were plenty of plates and wine glasses on their table. Bey is set to perform in the likes of Barcelona, Cologne, and Brussels this month, before jetting back to the States and completing her tour in September.
But despite her recent outing to a swanky restaurant, it seems Queen Bey isn’t one to turn her nose up at fast food. In fact, she’s said to have spent £2,000 on fried chicken while in the capital – yes, really. Selling out Hotspur Stadium night after night, the Grammy winner splashed out on chicken burgers for a private event held after her final night on stage.
She reportedly ordered 50 Straight Up Burgers, 20 Korean Vegan Burgers, 75 Regular Fries and 200 Naked Chicken Tenders for her entourage in celebration of her London take-over.
After serving the star, Chicken Shop CEO John Nelson admitted it was a real ‘honour’ to provide food for the chart-topper’s after-party. He told The Sun: ‘At Chicken Shop, we’re big fans of Beyonce and have watched in excitement as “Bey-mania” swept London this last week.
‘So it was an honour to know we were her fried chicken shop of choice when it came to satisfying the cravings of her guests at the Flannels exclusive event.’ The singer’s guests partied the night away at the Flannels X Beyoncé Renaissance pop-up shop on Oxford Street and we can only imagine how rowdy it got.
