Beyoncé might be known for her super-private persona, but a few years ago, she was a total goofball who wasn’t afraid of teasing her interviewers for their accents and hair. If you go back even further, Beyoncé was the sassiest, most unfiltered member of Destiny’s Child who had no qualms with shading her bandmates and gushing over hot guys.
Though the 36-year-old singer hasn’t given an interview in more than four years (likely because she’s become so astronomically famous that she can sell her music without a second of promoting it), we still long for the days when Bey showed her goofier side in public.
To reminisce, we rounded up 10 slap-your-knee funny Beyoncé interviews that you probably forgot about, from when she deadpanned about cooking water at her mama’s Thanksgiving to when she couldn’t understand a word of what an interviewer was saying. Prepare to laugh out loud.
