Reworking the lyrics of her song Halo, Beyoncé posted a handwritten note that read, "Gravity can't begin to pull me out of the fan again.
"I felt my hair was yankin' from the fan that's always hatin'."
The superstar was performing the hit ballad when her long locks became caught in the whirring fan. But ever the professional, she continued to sing perfectly in tune as her security team struggled to set her free.
The wife of Jay Z also posted a video of the incident, which quickly garnered more than 100,000 thumbs up from fans.
The 31-year-old is currently on the North American leg of her Mrs Carter world tour.
The tour visited Europe earlier this year but Beyonce returns to the UK next month to perform at the V Festival in Chelsmford and Staffordshire.
Power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z were recently spotted taking time out of their busy schedules to enjoy a night out in Brooklyn with fellow celebrity friends, including rapper Timbaland and Mariah Carey's husband, Nick Cannon.
Beyoncé, 31, and Jay-Z, 43, left their seventeen-month old daughter Blue Ivy at home to dance the night away in an old warehouse in Brooklyn.
The loved-up couple were celebrating the launch of Jay-Z's new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, and were seen busting out some great dance moves on the dance floor.
They were seen laughing and having a great time, enjoying the company of other big stars including Timbaland who collaborated with Jay-Z on his album.
Beyoncé showed she looks just as good dressed casually as she does in her glamorous outfits on stage, opting for a white lace blouse and matching jacket, and light denim shorts that flaunted her toned legs.
She let her hair down in long, wavy tresses and was seen bopping along with her music mogul husband, drink in hand.
Jay-Z chose a plain white T-shirt and black trousers and jacket ensemble, drawing attention to his large, chunky gold necklace.
