Michelle Williams was a special guest at Liberty University’s student convocation last week when, during a discussion, she was asked to do a favour for the audience and call up her fellow Destiny’s Child alum Beyonce.
In the video above, Williams seems a bit perturbed by the request, telling the crowd, “You all just used me, and I don’t appreciate it,” and “You all are so shady.”
Caving to pressure, Williams eventually makes the call — which goes straight through to voicemail.
“Hey, it’s B,” states the greeting. “Leave a message.”
After the clip went viral, the Beyhive buzzed its way into a frenzy attempting to decipher what they thought was Beyonce’s cellphone number, taking to Twitter to try to figure it out.
Following the event, however, Williams had a confession to make: that wasn’t really Queen Bey she called, and the whole thing was a prank she pulled on the audience.
Williams revealed her subterfuge on Twitter, revealing the voice on the message actually belonged to a woman named Katie.
