Bill Gates Surprised But Not Offended By Beyonce Lyrics

(Radio.com) Beyonce offended a lot of people with the Super Bowl performance of her new single "Formation." Police unions are threatening to boycott and not provide security at her upcoming concerts.

One person who wasn't offended by her latest track is billionaire Bill Gates. He recently spoke to Wired about his reaction to Beyonce name dropping him in a song.

Gates told the tech publication, "I hadn't realized that she did that until somebody in the office actually sent me a copy of the lyrics and I said, 'Are you serious? This is kind of a strange set of words here.' I'm surprised."

Bill Gates says he took Beyonce's lyrics, which read, "You just might be a black Bill Gates in the making, cause I slay/ I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making," as a compliment. Read more here.
