Bill Gates Finally Found Out He’s In Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’

When it comes to Beyoncé’s new song “Formation,” Bill Gates and Red Lobster have only one thing in common, and paying attention is not one of them. In a recent interview with WiredGates revealed that he did not realize his honorable mention in the Super Bowl song until someone at the office sent him the lyrics.

“And I said, ‘Are you serious? This is kind of a strange set of words here.’” The 60-year-old Microsoft co-founder recalled. “I’m not sure she said those words at the Super Bowl, though, did she?” She said them, but he must’ve been too into Coldplay to notice.

Gates’ reaction is mostly the good natured one of an out of touch dad — confused, yet flattered all the same. “I guess it’s nice that people consider me successful,” he said before wondering if he should “do a Bing search” on his name.

We’re all looking forward to him learning about Google searches and Lil Wayne.
