Talk about a Bey-Once in a lifetime experience! An Australian teen named Valentina is now the official “World’s Most Amazing Selfie” title holder after taking the above photo of herself during the Beyonce concert at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne Park on Friday. You may recognize the angel on her shoulder as none other than Beyonce herself, who leaned in (with microphone in hand) for an epic selfie photobomb!
Valentina posted a cropped version of the photo on her Tumblr blog with the rather nonchalant caption, “So um Beyonce posed for my selfie.”
She also posted a couple more selfies from the Beyonce show, which I’m guessing took place before the one above, on Facebook and wrote, “chillin with my girl B.”
Valentina later revealed more details about what happened — at least what she could remember — after being asked about the photo on Tumblr:
honolulu-child: are you the girl who was at the Melbourne show and Beyoncé wanted you to sing but then you wanted a selfie so she said ‘oh you want to take a picture’ so then she posed? omg
Valentina: i dont even know it was such a blur i just remember her bending down to me and my friend and i just turned for the photo and wowoowow it was the best moment ever like she posed its crazy i wasnt even expecting her to look at my phone or notice me in the crowd
Beyonce later posted the photo on her official Facebook page with the one-word caption, “Photobomb:”
Tumblr users were quick to let the astonished Valentina know about the Facebook post:
Anonymous: OMG YOURE ON BEYONCES FACEBOOK PAGE LIKE SHE POSTED THE PICTURE
Valentina: AHHHH IM SHAKING THIS IS CRAZY I DIDNT THINK SHE WOULD EVER SEE THE PHOTO
my-mind-is-screaming: DUUUUDE BEYONCE JUST POSTED YOUR PHOTO ON HER FACEBOOK OMG
Valentina: I KNOW MY FRIENDS JUST TAGGED ME IN THE COMMENTS
Tumblr commenters have also kept Valentina abreast of other references to the photo in numerous worldwide media outlets including MTV News, E! Online and the Daily Mail. Here’s an example:
Anonymous: You’re on e-online! And I just want to tell you that you’re so beautiful
Valentina: WOAH NO WAY! thankyou!
And speaking of Valentina (a ballerina btw) being beautiful, here are a couple more photos of her from her n-uumb Tumblr account that serve as further evidence of that fact:
We all know what the obvious next step here is, right? Yep. Someone needs to get a kickstarter campaign started to help Valentina get herself to a Miley Cyrus concert pronto!
