So for Destiny’s 13th birthday, I got us tickets to go see Beyonce in concert yesterday at the Lincoln Financial Field and she had a blast! This girl screamed and jumped up and down and sang along with practically all of the songs. The only downside to the concert was that it rained. Oh lawd it rained! And we got caught in it, We were cool when we first left. It was when we got off the sub that all hell broke loose with the skies opening up and pissing on us. Even with our umbrellas, we got soaked. The messed up part was we had to stand outside for a bit before we could even go in and even when we made it inside, we couldn’t go to our seats because of the rain. So Beyonce, the next time you decide to include Philly in your tour, please have your concert at the Wells Fargo Center. I’m sure it holds just as many people if not more. Here are a few pix from that night. I took so many videos and pictures. DJ Khaled opened and he brought out Yo Gotti, Meek Mill, Rick Ross and Freeway. Lawd when Meek did All Eyes on Us Destiny screamed the lyrics like no other. LOL! And you know when Freeway did Roc the Mic Right I had to get it popping. That song was from my senior year in high school. Shockingly Des knew part of the words LOL. After the concert, no lie, I took my heels off and walked barefoot to the sub LOL. And because the bus wasn’t coming when we got to Broad n Olney and it was already after 1 o’clock n the morning, since we were still so amped from the concert, we just walked the rest of the way home. And yes, I was barefoot.
It was a great mother-daughter birthday experience for us. My birthday was June 4th and her birthday is tomorrow, the 7th. A lot of people threw shade on the low because of how much I paid for me and Des tickets. A lot of people don’t know (and wouldn’t care no how) what me and Destiny have been through over the last 2 1/2 years. I won’t get into it because it is our business and no one needs to be in it. But the fact of the matter is, whether I paid $300 for the tickets or I paid $3,000, it was my money that I worked for. I didn’t borrow from anyone to get the tickets, I didn’t sell ass or skip a bill or anything underhanded so we could go. With all of the tragedies that we’ve seen and faced these last 2 1/2 years, this mother-daughter outing was needed and the experience was well worth every dollar that was spent.
