Beyonce was left in a tangle after her hair became caught in a huge stage fan during a concert in Canada on Monday night.

The “Crazy in Love” hitmaker was sat on the edge of the stage singing her track Halo when her long locks were swept up into an industrial-sized fan positioned in front of the audience pit.

Beyonce continued to perform as a team of assistants and security guards desperately tried to unwrap her hair from the blades.

The star was eventually freed, prompting a huge cheer from the crowd at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

It is not the only ‘fan’ to cause a scene during a concert on the singer’s Mrs. Carter World Tour – a male devotee dropped to the ground in shock after Beyonce hugged him at a show in America last week.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
