Beyoncé Turned Down A Drink From Jay-Z In The Middle Of The Grammys, And People Have Theories About What Was Actually Happening

"Why was he so chill like he was at a BBQ or something?"

Everyone who watched the Grammys this weekend knows Beyoncé showed up fashionably late — but they may not have caught a hilariously awkward moment with Jay-Z right after her arrival.

When the couple were seated, it appears that Jay grabbed a drink...right before host Trevor Noah approached to present Bey with the Grammy she missed.

While Beyoncé stayed camera-ready, Jay seemed to be completely oblivious that they were even being filmed.

In fact, Jay even attempted to pass Beyoncé a drink in the middle of it all...

And then had a hilarious reaction when she declined:

The funny husband-wife interaction caused a lot of buzz online — from speculation about what was going through Jay's mind to Bey's reaction:

And while Bey may have initially turned down Jay-Z's offer for a drink, she was definitely ready to share a toast later in the evening!
