One actress couldn’t help but get tongue tied when Jay Z introduced her to his wife, Beyonce.
Holly Holm might be a star in her own right, but when it came to meeting the Drunk In Love singer, Beyonce it’s safe to say she got a little tongue tied in an encounter that any normal person would be embarrassed by.
Thankfully she can laugh it off and told the story to KRQE in Albuquerque and said, “I met Jay-Z and he says, ‘This is my wife.’ And I say, ‘Oh, hi, what is your name?’ Because that’s what I do when I meet someone’s wife.”
Still, it didn’t take long for the UFC women’s bantamweight champion to realize her huge mistake.
“As I’m shaking her hand, I keep thinking to myself, Why did I just say that? Why did I just say that, that’s Beyonce.”
That’s when Jay Z stepped in and seemed to diffuse the situation.
“So then Jay Z is asking me about the fight and I can’t even focus on what he’s saying because I just put my foot in my mouth.”
She couldn’t help but apologize to Beyonce, who didn’t seem bothered at all by her small indiscretion. She reassured her that it was fine, but Holm wasn’t too sure.
Also in the interview she said that all of the attention she has been getting since her win has been pretty crazy.
Check out the full interview in which she details the encounter at a VIP party below.
