Beyonce London, Apr 30 (ANI): R&B singer Beyonce has infuriated a famous museum in Vienna after she sent in a look-a-like of hers for a special personal tour of the museum, while she was busy shopping, according to newspaper reports.

As per tabloid dailies Oesterreich and Heute, Beyonce, who was in Vienna to perform at a concert on April 29, was due to visit the Albertina, one of the Austrian capital’s most famous museums.

The museum is said to attract around one million visitors each year, with its recent visitors including Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Nicolas Cage.

But Beyonce decided she would rather visit the city’s clothing boutiques, and sent in a stand-in, who was then photographed with Albertina director, Klaus Albrecht Schroeder.

When it became known that the singer had not attended the tour herself, the museum’s management were deeply disappointed, and a said that they would complain to her management.

“What a cheek,” the Telegraph quoted Verena Dahlitz, a spokesman for the Albertina, as telling Austrian news agency APA.

“We were a little doubtful yesterday, but weren’t really sure. It could have been her,” she added, saying that fans had also been fooled by the stand-in. (ANI)
