Joan Smalls talks licking Beyoncé


Supermodel Joan Smalls says it was all her idea to lick Beyoncé in her “Yoncé ” video. “That was my idea,” Smalls told Vanity Fair recently at a launch party for Nike’s collaboration with designer Riccardo Tisci.

“I just got inspired by the song—[the lyric] ‘Yoncé all on his mouth like liquor’—I’m like, ‘Can we actually see what Yoncé would taste like? Can I lick her?’ And they’re like, ‘Go for it.’ I’m like, ‘Are you sure?’ And I asked her, and she’s like, ‘Absolutely,’” Smalls continued.


So what does King Bey taste like you ask? “Uh, sweet —So Jay Z is a very lucky man,” Joan said, laughing. As for her personal feelings for the entertainer, Smalls says Baddie Bey is truly “spectacular, professional, and down-to-earth —she gives it her all.’ – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
