Beyoncé' is used to fans cheering, screaming, even fainting in her presence. But sucking in her hair and refusing to let it go? That was a first.

Fortunately the fan that took hold of Queen Bey's tresses onstage during Monday's Mrs. Carter Tour show in Montreal was an actual wind-blowing device, not a rabid concertgoer. But being the consummate professional that she is, Jay-Z's love kept right on singing "Halo" while her security guards attempted to untangle her locks and free her.

But Blue Ivy's mama wasn't thrown by what could've been a sucky situation—she actually thought it was pretty funny! She posted an Instagram video that showed her singing from the audience pit, unable to move due to the supersized fan's strong hold on her curls.

She also good-naturedly Instagrammed a cue sheet with reworked "Halo" lyrics that took the incident into account, saying, "Gravity can't begiiiiiin to pull me out of the fan again/ I felt my hair was YANKIIIIIIIN / From the fan that's always hatiiiiiiin."

So the next time you get caught up in the blades of a fan—or any situation, really, that you seemingly can't escape—just remember to act like Queen Bey: Keep on doing your thing, accept help from others, move forward and laugh it off.
