When you’re flawless, you don’t need the help of an assistant to make you appear seemingly more perfect.
While walking the red carpet at husband Jay Z‘s TIDAL X: 1020 Amplified by HTC concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Tuesday, Beyoncé‘s assistant wouldn’t stop touching her—literally. The assistant kept fixing the “Single Ladies” crooner’s plunging dress, so much so that Queen Bey had to shirk her off.
In a video shared on Instagram, Beyoncé can be seen telling her helper to “stop it.” She somehow manages to maintain her glowing smile while scolding her anonymous employee, which, of course, is yet another reason why she has earned her regal nickname.
If the assistant thought she was #blessed for being able to touch Beyoncé, she’d be right, but there’s no denying the amount of cringing she was doing when this happened. As soon as she was rebuffed, the assistant whimpered off into the corner so that Beyoncé could continue to pose like the fierce woman that she is—without any wardrobe malfunctions, thanks to her now-sidelined friend.

Philipp Plein designed the “XO” singer’s jaw-dropping gown, which she accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Christian Louboutin heels and Georgine fur. Even though she turned heads on the red carpet, she swapped out her fashion-forward look for a pink leotard when it was time to take the stage. She did, however, keep her hair in the high ponytail she debuted when she arrived.
After Nicki Minaj performed some hits from her repertoire, including “Moment for Life” and “Truffle Butter,” she launched into “Feeling Myself.” A few bars in, Beyoncé and a dance troupe appeared onstage, which marked the first time that Minaj and Beyoncé had performed their hit single together.
Beyoncé then brought out another guest—her husband! The couple performed “Holy Grail” together and even revealed to the audience, “This is my favorite song to sing with my husband.”
They ended their performance with a rare showing of PDA: a kiss.
