Chance the Rapper’s Reaction to Beyoncé’s Hug Is Geeky-Cute As Can Be
Let’s just chat for a moment about all the swoon-worthy, cringe-worthy and slay-worthy moments the VMAs gave us this year. From Drake publicly professing his love for Rihanna (and her HARD burn in return) to Jimmy Fallon taking down Ryan Lochte (with the best reaction from Michael Phelps), there was only one thing that could possibly take the title of the ultimate moment: Beyoncé’s Lemonade performance. Taking us right through every super sweet and viciously sour song, no one (NO ONE!) was immune to the effects of her greatness — and that includes the celebs in attendance. Case in point: Chance the Rapper’s reaction when he received a hug from mighty B.
Chance was having quite the night himself, mixing and mingling with A-listers while receiving the praise of fans and nabbing an MTV interview. But while he was busy telling the camera, “I’m on your a$$,” there was someone on his back, too.
Beyoncé slid up behind the rapper and with her hand on his arm, gave him a quick squeeze. When Chance turned around to see that it was Bey giving him a little love, his reaction was everything.

Just watch that a few more times and you’ll fall in love with the fact that in this moment, Chance the Rapper was all of us — because you totally know that if you were to receive a hug from Beyoncé, you’d be just as floored as he was. Love it!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
