We wonder what Beyonce and the Beyhive will say about this!
ESPN’s “First Take” host, Stephen A. Smith heaped praise on pop singer Taylor Swift. After attending a concert with his daughter and her friends, he actually stated that it was “the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life!”
On a recent Stephen A. Smith Show radio show, the loud-talking controversial personality explained that his daughter wanted to go to the Taylor Swift concert and since he is “perceived” to be rich, he ended up purchasing 10 tickets at $2000 apiece. (But, he did get 2 free tickets from his “man Mark Shapiro”).
They caught her at The Eras Tour in Los Angeles.
“I have two daughters…Teenagers have friends. And so, when your dad is perceived as having money and you got daughters that opened their mouths and promises them that daddy’s going to get them tickets. Ladies and gentlemen, I had to get ten tickets. Them damn things was $2,000 a piece. Two times ten is $20,000!”
Not only did he buy the tickets, but he actually went to the performance that night. He harped the type of praise that was unexpected from someone like Smith, who is known to be very critical of anything he typically speaks about.
“Not only did I send my daughters back to the concert, Daddy actually went with them. Me at a Taylor Swift concert. But I said I’m gonna go see her. That’s the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life. Excuse my language, but that s**t was off the chain. Taylor Swift brought the damn house down. I was jamming to Taylor Swift! She was sensational. I’d pay to see her again. Seriously, I’m not joking. She was a superstar that night. That girl is special.”

Maybe Smith hasn’t been to a Beyonce concert, maybe he is right, but, I’m sure the ears of Mrs. Carter must be ringing after this video was released.
