Beyonce Knowles at Pyramids - Cairo

Singer Beyonce Knowles was on a visit to Cairo where she admired the famous pyramids and posed next to the Great Sphinx of Giza in the careful guidance of Zahi Hawass, one of the most important Egyptologyst.

But this visit has sparked by a very virulent reaction from Zahi, who called Beyonce, in front of the journalists, “a stupid person”.

“I showed her the Sphinx and I gave her a book on King Tutankhamen,” “She’s a stupid person and she doesn’t understand a thing and she doesn’t want to understand… She’s coming here to take pictures and that’s it.” said a nervous Zahi Hawass, in an interview with journalist Gamal al-Summer.
