If anything holds true, it’s this: the appeal of Beyoncé is irresistible. And a Fox News anchor let the star’s catchy tunes get the best of her when she was caught breaking it down to Queen B’s smash 2008 hit “Single Ladies” during a commercial break.
To be fair, early morning delirium may have already set in. Tia Ewing, an anchor for Fox 40, a local California station, was working at 4:15 a.m. when cameras caught her dancing during a cut to commercial, the Huffington Post reported. In an on-air segment later in the day—after her coworkers played the clip—Ewing said she was unaware that the cameras were rolling when she busted out her moves, including, of course, Beyoncé’s famous “put-a-ring-on-it” hand flip. Still, Ewing tried to shrug off the entertaining gaffe.
“I gotta get it where I can get it,” she said.
She added that Fox 40 viewers got a glimpse into the real Tia Ewing.
“That’s really who I am,” she said. “I’m crazy.”
Later, she tweeted: “They caught me, BUSTED! Let’s hope this doesn’t go viral.”
Yeah, right. The video garnered over 100,000 views in eight hours, the Daily Mail noted.
