Kevin Hart stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about everything from meeting President Barack Obama, geeking out at a Beyoncé concert, and his new movie Ride Along.
Another star struck moment he had was when he attended good friend Beyoncé’s concert in Los Angeles. However, this time, he was only kidding with his enthusiasm.
Of the video of him fanning-out that went viral, the comedian laughs: “I know her, so I was doing it to be silly. At first, we were in the Beehive and I was like, ‘I love you, Beyoncé! I love you!’ And she was like, ‘Shut up, Kevin!’ … but then there’s a moment where she … throws a towel at me and this guy behind me might have been the biggest Beyoncé fan in the world. He’s like, ‘You’re so lucky, Kevin Hart! What are you going to do with it? You’ve got to frame it!’”
All jokes aside, Kevin goes on to explain he is a real fan of Beyoncé and her husband, Jay Z. In fact, he considers them mentors. “When you look at people who have taken this entertainment thing to another level …and know how to expand their brand to where their voices are powerful,” Kevin explains. “Jay, especially. Jay is definitely a mentor to me just talking to me on the business side. He’s the reason I got my own company. He’s the reason why I’m producing myself.”
