(Yahoo!) - In a word: YEOW! Beyoncé suffered a (literally) hair-raising emergency on stage in Montreal Monday night, when her long locks somehow got caught in a stage fan — necessitating scissors to cut her free.

Thankfully, the fan did not appear to be running at the time — otherwise, we're sure she would have punctuated that song with ashriek! However, as anyone with long hair knows, it's never fun to get tangled up in this manner; and at the very least it's a bit on the embarrassing side.
