‘Not a Lick of Rhythm’: Folks Roast Angela Simmons After She Attempts Pole Challenge
Although the 31-year-old mother claims she’s a horrible dancer, it still doesn’t stop her from giving it a swing and having fun.
She recently attempted to the “Before I Let Go” dance challenge to Beyoncé‘s rendition of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s popular song “Before I Let Go.” The craze has been trending on social media and Simmons hopped right on the bandwagon.
She took to Instagram on Sunday with a video of herself, fitness pole instructor Yumiko Harris and New York makeup artist Christopher Michael giving the challenge a go at Foxy Fitness and Pole in NYC and NJ.
“We all know when the queen calls a challenge I do it @beyonce!” Simmons said in her post. “I’m no dancer but hey ! Lol thanks @yu.mi.ko and @foxyfitnessandpole for letting me do this fun challenge/workout in. And @therealcmichael you showed out hahaha #beforeiletgochallenge.”
Fans quickly pointed out Simmons’ apparent lack of dance talent.
“Not a lick of damn rhythm girl just stop why you’re ahead lol!”
“U stiff lighten up a bit ma it won’t kill you to move your hips.”
“This is too funny she really does dance like a white girl but she thick tho!’
Other fans commended her for having fun.
“Actually the best I seen her move thus far I’m giving a hand clap and bee give anybody rhythm! I’m glad you’re having fun!”
“Yesss Angie!!! Keep being your authentic and fun loving self… we need to see more positive things such as this .”
Last Monday, Beyoncé recorded her first Instagram story ever and showed concert footage of a mass of fans swaying to her version of “Before I Let Go” in what appears to be a remixed version of the Electric Slide. The song appears on her Netflix special “Homecoming,” which is a concert film centering on her monumental 2018 Coachella performances dedicated to HBCUs.
Her rendition includes the following lyrics and dance instructions, telling folks to, “Turn around, kick, then slide/ And twirl that ass to the right, now/ Ooh, bunny hop, bunny hop, drop, pop/ Cross your legs, turn around and clap/ Shuffle to the left, let’s glide now.”
