Is this a bit much Beyoncé?
Horse fly named after Beyonce
A horse fly with golden colourings that has been newly discovered in Australia has been named after Beyonce.
Bryan Lessard, a 24-year-old researcher at Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, has reportedly said that the horse fly’s golden bottom is ‘bootylicious’, referencing the Destiny’s Child hit single.
Lessard is said to have wanted to pay respect to the insect's beauty by naming it Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae. The species had been sitting in a fly collection since it was captured in 1981 – the year Bey was born.
The researcher has purportedly claimed that the singer would be ‘in the nature history books forever.’
Queen Bey's 'Lemonade' sent fans into meltdown, as they tried to identify Jay Z's alleged "mistress," but have we been fooled all along?
Beyonce and Jay Z have unveiled intimate home videos from their wedding and at home with their daughter Blue Ivy to celebrate the end of their 'On The Run' Tour.
In case you haven't heard, Queen Bey stole the show. But we really wouldn't expect anything less...
