Stephanie Totino, a vivacious Melbourne maths and science teacher, awoke on Sunday morning abuzz with all the wonder of the world having the night before performed a rousing solo during the audience participation segment known as ‘Halo’, a popular ditty featured as part of the Beyoncé Presents: The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour Starring Beyoncé.
Miss Totino also (probably) awoke on Sunday oblivious to the price Beyoncé will (inevitably) place on her head now that the former is receiving national media attention that could otherwise be used for purposes of promoting Beyoncé after Totino arguably upstaged said Beyoncé during Beyoncé’s third performance at Rod Laver Arena last Saturday.
Miss Totino, who has since become something of An Internet Sensation, seemed pretty stoked nonetheless, telling Nine News, “There could have been triple the amount of people, if Beyoncé was the only person in that room it wouldn’t have made a difference. I was just like, I’m singing to her and that’s all I really care about at this point in time.”
Last week in Melbourné, Beyoncé deigned to stand in front of a house in Brunswick, sending Youths into a frenzy and supposedly increasing the value of the ramshackle abode on which she leant when it inevitably goes up for sale at a later date. Previously in Beyoncé, Beyoncé reprimanded a concertgoer for not being In The Moment; prior to that, Bey got her weave caught in a different kind of fan during a less-envy inducing performance of the same song.
