2001 Throwback

Twitter is fairly certain that Destiny's Child were high AF in this backstage footage from 2001

‘Lions are cool too.’

LIKELY STILL BUZZING from an iconic performance at this year’s Coachella, we doubt there’s much that can burst Beyoncé’s bubble right now.

And yet something tells us that old-school footage which has emerged this week of her and her two former bandmates might come close.

In a post which was uploaded to Twitter in recent days, Destiny’s Child can be seen being interviewed by a Dutch media outlet called Toazted, and it’s safe to say the trio appear a little… ehm… relaxed.

In fact, Twitter is fairly convinced they’re high AF.

In the 2001 interview, the ladies are asked to choose which animal they would be for a day, and the responses sound a little like a conversation you might have with your mates at about 6am following a two-day session.

In other words, none of you are as deep as you think you are.

Beyoncé was the first to chime in, telling the interviewer in a dreamy voice she’d be a whale.

I love whales.  I love whales since I was a little girl.

Then it was an equally dreamy Kelly’s turn.

I think I would be a bird. Because they can fly. Not only can they fly, but they can travel all over the world,  ya know what I’m saying?

Make way for Michelle, people.

I would like to be a black panther. So I can creep. Through the wilderness. And I like when they walk, their backs go like…. that. And when they step, they step better than I do. They step with a stride. And they’re graceful. So when I walk out of here, I’m going to step like a black panther.

Obviously, Twitter users are loving the less than polished version of a band which were always known for their media-savvy exchanges with the press.

Far be it from us to suggest either way, so if Bey, Kelly and Michelle could just confirm or deny, that would be great.
