Beyoncé nearly broke the Internet, yet again, on Saturday with the surprise release of her new song, “Formation,” and its accompanying music video. But it’s not just Beyhive members going crazy. Celebrity fans are freaking out, too. Check out the reactions below!

Gabrielle Union exclaimed on Twitter, “Beyonce! Beyonce! Beyonce! #redlobster #hotsauce #blackbillgates #Formation EVERYTHING!” John Legend was also taken in by the song’s explicit Red Lobster line, which goes, “When he f*ck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay.” Along with a photo of President Obama looking uncomfortable, Legend amusingly tweeted, “When you realize your dad took your mom to red lobster every week.”

“This is a good tweet,” wife Chrissy Teigen replied in approval. Kendall Jenner also tweeted, “Take his ass to Red Lobster,” with a middle-finger emoji, representing Beyoncé’s own bird-flipping in the clip. And Kevin McHale, who first wrote, “THAT NEW @Beyoncé,” wanted the singer to know, “I mean, @Beyonce, I too ‘sip Cuervo with no chasers.’”

So blown away, Laverne Cox fired off multiple tweets about the video, and also wrote on Instagram, “So I was really thinking about rocking braids again before the #QueenBey @beyonce dropped this new video for #Formation. I am losing my mind and going through it with many feels in the wake of the new Bey #Slayage. Luckily the smelling sauce is next to the hot sauce in my bag swag as I am on the way to red lobster in Bey’s chopper. There is life to be gotten. Get yours with Bey’s new video for #Formation. And #ISlay.”

In contrast, Zendaya simply declared, “Yooonnncceeeeeee……” With crying emojis Chance The Rapper posted, “Beyonce just made me so proud of my nose.” Uzo Aduba also quoted that line, “I like my Negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils,” along with the hashtag “#ISlay.” Many fans on Twitter are also appreciating that part, as well as the approval given to Afros, and other cultural statements Beyoncé made in the video, including references to police brutality.

Meanwhile, Andy Cohen retweeted a number of people who were pointing out what seemed to be allusions to his “Real Housewives” franchise. And with the song referencing their parents and upbringing, sister Solange was especially proud. She tweeted, “Y’all gonna learn bout dem children of Celestine & Mathew, lol. Slay sis, slay. And Slay niece, slay.”

Yes, little Blue Ivy was in the music video, too, as Gossip Cop noted earlier. No word yet if she’ll be joining her mom’s performance at the Super Bowl, but Gossip Cop will have continuing coverage on Sunday!

“Kung Fu Panda 3” Winning Super Bowl Weekend Box Office — See Estimates!

Kung Fu Panda Box Office Super Bowl Weekend

Kung Fu Panda 3 is scoring touchdown after touchdown at the box office this Super Bowl weekend.

The animated movie, featuring the voices of Jack Black and Angelina Jolie, is again karate chopping the competition. As Gossip Cop reported, Kung Fu Panda opened at number one last week, and it’s holding on to that position now. For its second weekend, the flick is expected to top the chart with $21.1 million.

It’s typically slower at the box office during Super Bowl weekend, which could explain why the star-studded Hail, Caesar! is fumbling and only looking at $11.1 million for a second-place debut. The Revenant is eyeing third with a potential $6.9 million in ticket sales.

Bringing in $6.6 million would put the record-breaking Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the number four spot. Nicholas Sparks may have no choice but watch his latest book-movie adaptation The Choice settle for a fifth-place opening with a projected $5.7 million. Also disappointing, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is likely to only have a haul of $5.2 million, which would give it sixth place.

With ticket sales of $4.6 million, The Finest Hours is a contender for number seven. Possibly rounding out the top 10 are Ride Along 2 ($4.4 million), Dirty Grandpa ($3.9 million), and The Boy ($3.8 million). All figures are currently estimates. Gossip Cop will have updates.
