Jimmy Kimmel recently apologized to Beyoncé for saying her name wrong for the past 20 years.
The late-night talk show host pointed out that the accent was on the last “e” in the singer’s name. “So it’s actually Be-yon-say. Not Beyonce,” Kimmel explained, pronouncing the first like “Bee-yonsay” and the second like “Beeyon-Say.”
“And I just want to be-yon-say, to be-yon-say,” Kimmel joked, “that I am sor-ray for screwing up your name for twenty years. I mean you said, you told us ‘say my name, say my name,’ and we didn’t listen.”
