Beyoncé got a rare rejection. She and Jay-Z requested special access to film a music video inside Rome’s Colosseum.
The Ministry of Cultural Heritage said nope. Too late. Italian scientist Alberto Angela had The Colosseum booked on those dates.
Their One The Run II Tour passed through Rome two weeks ago. They got the idea to go inside the ancient landmark and create another iconic music video. The Louvre Museum in Paris gave the couple unfettered access to film the music video for “Ape[poop].” (The Wrap)
- It’s not very often that Beyoncé hears the word “no.”
- Go ahead and make music videos at Stonehenge, Taj Mahal, and The Great Wall of China.
- Next week, the One The Run II Tour arrives in Cleveland at the start of the North American leg. The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame is available for making a music video.
- Beyoncé filmed a Pepsi commercial with Britney Spears and Pink inside The Colosseum.
