TEWKSBURY, MA -- Wait, Beyonce was in Tewksbury's Walmart? 

That's what the social media universe is saying on Friday evening, from Hot 96.9 to a slew... of... people... on twitter...

We've heard that she was giving out gift cards there tonight and has a concert tonight in Boston, but it's all unfolding...

What do you think, Tewksbury? Why Tewksbury? Why not? Is it neat that a celebrity came to town? Or does it not matter?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments! And if you've got photos or videos from the Beyonce sighting, make sure to put them on our boards!

Did you see her tour bus and which way it went? I saw a large tour bus on Route 38 on the Woburn/Wilmington line near Dunkin Donuts/CVS. I was driving in the opposite direction of the bus, tried to get a look at the side of it which had writing, but didn't want to stop traffic. It seemed out of place and blocked traffic for a minute, and I thought it looked like a celebrity tour bus.

So What. I saw Rhianna, at the Smith-haven Mall, on Long Island, from whence I live. I am still trying to forget how quick, she came and left, LOL.

"Useless information."

She gave out 750 $50.00 gift cards. Nice to see our name on the map. Also nice to see someone spending $37,500.00 in our community. I am sure it was a thrill for those who were in the store. Merry Christmas !!!!

Yes it was here, no information is bad information Anthony, if you don't like it don't read it, other people enjoy it. I'm not a fan of hers by its nice to see celebrities out with regular people, all the people associated with her were very cordial, she was very cordial also. It was nice to get a gift card at this time of year esp. for me as I am on a limited budget $50. was a gift that I appreciated, now my grandkids will have an extra (practical) gift to open. Thank you Beyonce. Merry Christmas.

if you don't care why did you read it.
Donna Tucker December 21, 2013 at 10:54 AM
Isn't she allowed. She human.I'm definitely a fan of her, I think she has such great talant. And she proving that she is also normal.

I cant' help but wish I was at Walmart to see her. I think she is very beautiful and a good singer/performer. Once in a lifetime chance to see her, but I notice in the pictures she is surrounded by bodyguards. Hooray for Tewksbury!
Marcia A. Siara December 21, 2013 at 12:08 PM
she was indeed but they let her interact. As you can see from one photo she was holding a womans child. the body guards didn;t hover over her just around her.

I suppose for those living in a fantasy world or in small towns, seeing somebody from the "entertainment world" is a major event. Those living in major cities such as New York, etc., don't make a big deal of such "sightings" since it is a common occurance for well-known folks to be in a store, riding in an office elevator, or walking down the street to shop at a local store. As a side note, why the encouragement to show photos or videos of such folks in these venues? Unless a publicity stunt or pre-arranged and hyped visit, don't these folks deserve the same privacy as your "ordinary" people who live in these towns and villages (as well as those in the major or "big" cities)?

i get mobbed like that everytine i go to wal-mart also
Renee Mann December 21, 2013 at 04:35 PM
I saw Lon Chaney drinking a margherita in Trader Vic's last night....

Can't someone ever do something nice, even around the holidays without people bashing it??? Wow she came in gave money away and people still find fault.....
Marshall Sam McCloud December 21, 2013 at 05:21 PM
I'll bet her ego is exploding right now. Titanium straws, renting hospitals, celebrating anniversaries in illegal countries, she needs to be brought down a notch. Every good thing she does helps conceal her true nature. No one will ever see it except poor Jay-Z.

How nice for the people who were in the store if it is really true. Beyonce appears to have some class and Christmas cheer which her wanna be copycat white girl that is dating the ugly thug is to selfish and self centered to have.
Al Cloutier December 21, 2013 at 06:24 PM
I think she is nice.
Marcia A. Siara December 21, 2013 at 07:24 PM
I just think its funny that people take the time to read and reply to these statement with the who cares and big deal, well obvious they do if they took the time to read the article. and people like that just have to bash to make themselves known otherwise they would not read the whole thing and not take the time to response

Saw the King once at the Food King in town but before I could get a photo he split back in 82 or 83 I think it was.
Frank W. Chupka December 21, 2013 at 08:00 PM
what is it exactly that bounce does? except wear fake hair
GUADALUPE TORRES December 22, 2013 at 12:27 AM
it is amazing of how some people can recognize celebrities out in public
Jim Levitt December 22, 2013 at 10:05 AM
It's a shame that all of you (well, many of you) don't have a life and need to make a comment about someone shopping at Walmart.
lisa December 22, 2013 at 10:22 AM
i think its pretty neat of her to do that. There are many people living paycheck to paycheck and for her to hand out all those gift cards...one celebrity that gives back...I will even go out and buy her new cd because of it and i don't own any of her music!
Don Dubocq December 22, 2013 at 02:05 PM
Well ,I was there at the 7-Eleven when Elvis checked in to their freezer to take up permanent residence. So put that in your pipe and smoke it!!!
ray December 23, 2013 at 03:21 AM
She was lip-synching again.
Phil Collins December 23, 2013 at 06:21 AM
She was only there for the Blue Light Special in Aisle 12.
JOHN WOZNIAK December 23, 2013 at 11:12 AM
Marshall Sam McCloud December 23, 2013 at 11:22 AM
This is news? She was targeting Target for refusing to sell her CD this year by giving free PR to Walmart.
Marcia A. Siara December 23, 2013 at 08:35 PM
Film Crew, what film crew?????

Nothing personal to those of you flipping out and just "Oh my God, Beyonce came into Wal-Mart!" But really people? First off, if you are in Wal-Mart to begin with you are responsible for tanking the US economy to buy your cheap China produced garbage. Secondly, do you actually think any of that money actually came from Beyonce? Not a single penny came from her. It was a pre-arranged publicity stunt arranged by the record company to sell her CD. It was their money, not hers. Thirdly... If this was a true generous act by Beyonce (LOL) then why the film crew, news, entourage, bodyguards, Twitter, Facebook publicity? Because that is all it was. Why not do it anonymously? No film crew, no entourage. No publicity. Oh, that's right, she wants you to buy her CD. And people act like this is the greatest event ever. Sad... Truly sad and pathetic... Both that you are in Wal-Mart to begin with and that you would make the biggest deal in the world that an over-egotistical publicity hound like Beyonce came in.
