Beyonce‘s holy touch can turn the most stable person into a quivering mess or overload your senses to the point where unconsciousness is the only option — a fate that befell 22-year-old Antoine Rouse at a recent concert in Nashville. The Kentucky native became an internet sensation after fainting at Bey’s feet but has kept quiet about the life-changing moment until now.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Antoine gives a blow-by-blow account of the experience. “She grabbed my hand, and that’s when I properly freaked out,” he remembers. “It was like an out of body experience. She let go of my hand, and I thought she was done with me, but then she tapped me on the shoulder and beckoned me to hug her.”
Things swiftly became transcendental for Antoine. “I told her, ‘you’re my inspiration’ and she said ‘I love you too’ and… that’s when I passed out.”
Antoine’s reaction is completely understandable. How would you react to being touched by Beysus? Let us know in the comments below.
