Looks like Bey is being a bad girl again, but we’re not talking with hubby Jay Z! Beyonce is currently in big trouble for sampling audio from NASA’s 1987 space shuttle Challenger explosion in the intro for her XO track, which appears on Mrs. Carter’s latest self-titled album. Beyonce used an audio clip of NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt’s voice where he says “Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction.” Reps for NASA have stated that the audio reflects poor judgement and is “mocking” the crews sacrifices. Click below to see what Queen Bey’s camp had to say about the controversy.


Beyonce explained the drama with the “Challenger” audio sample to ABC News:

“My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster. The song ‘XO’ was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones and to remind us that unexpected things happen, so love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you. “The songwriters included the audio in tribute to the unselfish work of the Challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten.”

Yikes! This looks like it could get messy.
