Everybody calm down! Over the weekend, reports stated that Beyoncé was developing a film about Saartjie Baartman, aka the Hottentot Venus. The internet was on fire on whether or not she should do the film, and think pieces were at an all-time high. Yet, it seems that this news is false, at least according to Bey’s camp.
“Beyonce is in no way tied to this project,” her spokesperson told Billboard in a press statement. “This is an important story that should be told, however.”
The story was originally reported by The Sun who now has a whole lot of explaining to do.
