Benny Blanco remembers the time he by chance kissed Beyoncé on the aspect of her lip when he tried to kiss her on the cheek
You’ll know we love hearing people share stories of their personal encounters with some of the world’s greatest stars. One person who recently told a story about one of their encounters was producer Benny Blanco. During a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Benny shared a few stories about all of the big names he’s worked with in the industry.
One story that stood out, however, was the story he told when he accidentally kissed Beyoncé on the side of her lip as he was saying goodbye to her one night.
During the interview, he shared that he and several other people were chilling out with Beyoncé and Jay-Z at their home in the Hamptons a few years ago. He remembered when everyone was on their way out he tried to hug Beyoncé and kiss her on the cheek as he said goodnight.
Benny said, “I remember hugging, okay? And then I think, oh, I’ll kiss her on the cheek, that’s like what you do. I wanted to kiss her on the cheek, and I think we just missed it a bit, and I’m definitely on the corner of some kind of lip. And I say, “Oh my god, this is the worst thing in my life.” As I sit there, Jay-Z looks at me out of the corner of my eye. “
He went on to say that he thought there would have been some problems after that moment. “I look at Jay and say, ‘Oh, okay. I am dead. My life is over. It was great. Nice to know you, ”he said.
However, things were all good because no one seemed to notice.
He also said thank you for being in the same room with some of the biggest names in the business. Although he never worked with her, he said he learned a lot from both Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
Benny also shared stories about other artists he met and worked with, including Drake, Kanye West, Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, and many others.
