Anthony Mackie Recalls The Time Beyonce Serenaded Him With "Halo"

The Marvel star reportedly stated that the Queen Bey sung her hit song "Halo" for him several times. 

Even Marvel superheroes are obsessed with Beyoncé, and Anthony Mackie proved he was no exception during his Tuesday night (Apr. 24) appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. On the heels of her killer Coachella performances, host Corden naturally had to inquire about the Infinity War star's opinions on Queen B.

"I've seen Beyonce several times," said Mackie, who's portrayed Falcon in multiple Marvel films including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War. Viewers could sense a juicy story was coming by the way Mackie sat up on the couch and got excited about his moment in the Beyshine.

"So once I saw Beyoncé at Madison Square Garden, and around the stage she has this thing called the Beyhive, and I got Beyhive tickets... Beyoncé’s coming down the stairs, she’s singing 'Halo'... And she looks at me and she goes, 'halooo,' and I’m like 'oo-oo,'" Mackie explained, poking fun at his shaky singing game.

Beyonce Knowles performs onstage during 2018 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival Weekend 1 at the Empire Polo Field on April 14, 2018 in Indio, Calif.

But that was only the beginning. The actor continued: "And she reaches her hand out, and I hold her hand. And she looks at me and she sings like eight words, but it felt like 18 bars. And she was definitely holding my hand because she thought I was cute."

Fellow guest Judy Greer also shares Mackie's love for the "Drunk in Love" singer, having seen her showstopping performance at Coachella over the weekend. Corden asked the Ant Man and The Wasp actress if the performance was as stunning in real life as the Internet claimed.

"It was next level," Greer gushed. "She, I think, is a superhero. It was so incredible. And she said that she loved me. She said ‘I love each and every one of you.’ That includes me! Beyoncé loves me!” Mackie may have missed out on the desert performance, but he doesn't seem to mind -- he'd rather skip the sweat, dehydration and port-o-potties of the festival for a more comfortable live music experience.

"Bruh, it's 2018," Mackie said. "We have air-conditioned venues. They have bars and seats and people in their seats... when I go to a venue, I wanna chill out in my seat. I'm old now."

DJ Paul Sues Travis Scott For Copyright Infringement

DJ Paul has filed a multi-million dollar copyright infringement lawsuit against Travis Scott for allegedly stealing his music.

According to TMZ, the Three 6 Mafia member accuses Scott of snatching a portion of the hook from his 1997 track “Tear Da Club Up,” for “No Bystanders” off the 27-year-old rapper’s Astroworld album.

Paul claims that the hooks to both songs are “virtually identical and strikingly similar,” reports The Blast. The lawsuit also notes that the songs sound so much alike that Scott changed his lyrics from to “f**k da club up,” “tear the club up” during his Grammys performance in February, without Paul's permission.

The Memphis native is asking for at least $20 million in damages. However, TMZ reported that Scott reached out to Paul sometime Tuesday (April 23) to potentially work out the legal matter.

The “Sicko Mode” rapper has faced multiple lawsuits over the last two years, including being sued for canceling a music festival performance. Last week, Scott lost a nearly $400,000 lawsuit after being sued for pulling out of a party during Super Bowl weekend. In 2017, La Flame was hit with a lawsuit brought on by a fan who was paralyzed after sustaining injuries during one of his concerts.
