You are Beyoncé (click lower right icon for sound).

"You are Beyoncé." "Thank you."

Man, I wish someone would tell me that I was Beyoncé.

The perceived compliment came after Beyoncé stated on The View that she wore 4 pairs of stockings on stage to "keep it supported." Whoopi took the opportunity to make a point about how women's bodies fluctuate, and wanted to have Beyoncé let girls know that changes in size were ok. Whoopi's completed sentence was "You are Beyoncé, (thank you) and people look at you and say, 'Oh I want that body.'"

Still a great compliment. In fact, it's safe to say that anytime a sentence starts with "you are Beyoncé," the recipient should be prepared to say "thank you."

Here's the interview from June in its entirety; you also get to hear Barbara Walters say "bootylicious."
