A Madea Homecoming star and creator Tyler Perry has revealed how Beyoncé reacted to his recreation of her iconic Coachella performance in the new Netflix film.

The new movie follows Tyler's popular character Madea as she welcomes her family into town, to celebrate her great grandson, Tim, graduating.

In the closing moments of the film, Madea channels her inner Beyoncé and recreates Queen B's legendary 2018 Coachella concert, as well as scenes from the subsequent Netflix documentary: Beyoncé Homecoming.

Viewers went wild as they watched Tyler Perry don a pair of Daisy Dukes, sparkling silver boots, and his own version of the legendary yellow Beta Delta Kappa sweatshirt to perform a rendition of Drunk In Love.

One fan tweeted: "Y’all Madea has me dead, she did a whole homecoming documentary spoof at the end of the movie! Beyoncé truly is a legend!"

Another wrote: "Tyler Perry funny as hell for recreating Beyoncé’s Homecoming as Madea 😭😭😂"

"The way I’m LIVING for The ending of this movie, Madea being Beyoncé in homecoming is HILARIOUS !!!!#MadeaHomecoming" added a third.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the decision to reenact Beychella, Tyler Perry said: "I thought, 'There is no way that I can call this movie 'Homecoming' and not do some sort of homage to the Queen B."

He continued: "Before anybody saw it, before Netflix saw it, I sent her a clip."

According to Perry, he asked Beyoncé at the time: "Is this okay? If not, it will never see the light of day. You say yes or no."

And Queen B's response?

"Beyoncé laughed so hard," said the Madea star. "And here we are and there it is."

Ahead of the film's release, promotional photos were published of Tyler Perry as Madea recreating iconic poses from the likes of Adele, Netflix's Bridgerton and, once again, Beyoncé.

Asked by Entertainment Tonight how the star's responded to the homage, Tyler said: "Beyoncé and I talked, yes. I have heard from Adele. All of them love it, man, they just think it's hilarious.

"They thought it was hilarious that I spoofed all over them. [Beyoncé] sent me this text that is just saying, 'D E A D."

If it's good enough for Queen B, it's good enough for us!
