Serena Williams Tells Ellen About Being Kicked Off Beyoncé’s Stage

Superfan TV

Tennis star Serena Williams stopped by Ellen and had a conversation with host Ellen DeGeneres about Williams’s appearance in a pair of productions by music icon Beyoncé. “I saw you… in Beyoncé’s film Lemonade,” DeGeneres said. “And then you went onstage with Beyoncé. What is it like to go onstage with Beyoncé in front of all those people?”

“I’ve performed tennis-wise in front of thousands of people, but not like crowds that huge,” said Williams. “So all I could think was, ‘Serena, don’t miss your note. Don’t miss your note.’ And what’d I do? I missed my note.”

“But then I was like, ‘OK, this is so fun. I don’t want to leave, I don’t want to leave!’” she continued. “So I was trying to stay out there an extra beat, but eventually they told me in my ear, ‘Serena, get off the stage.’”
