The Beyhive was up in arms last night as Taylor Swift took to the Billboard Awards stage with a full band, similar to Beyoncé ’s 2018 Coachella performance.
Check out Swift’s performance below.
Compare that to Bey’s opening below.
Fans of the Houston diva immediately called the pop star out online, dubbing Swift’s performance #MayoChella.
Swift has yet to comment on the accusations made by fans. Beyoncé documented her Coachella performance in, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé. Shot over eight months, the Netflix special is part concert film, part documentary, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the two weekend performances that made her the first Black woman to headline the festival. She also wrote, directed and produced the project herself.
