Beyonce's legion of online fans have a new anecdote to add to the hero worship, Vanity Fair reports. Queen B's fans are praising Beyonce's unshakable calm after she accidentally ripped an earring out during her performance Saturday night at the Tidal X: 1015 benefit concert in Brooklyn. Video shows the singer calmly checking to see if she's bleeding from her ear, then continuing to perform without missing a beat. Fans online made a distinctly bigger deal about the incident than Beyonce did herself: The volume of talk about the incident caused a Beyonce-related hashtag to trend on Twitter. "Beyonce ripped out an earring and her ear was bleeding but she still performed while staying on key. That is talent ladies and gentlemen," one admirer tweeted. (More Beyonce stories.)
