Buzzmakers: Beyoncé Slapped & Hardy's Good Deed

What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?

1. Beyoncé Slapped on the Tush by Fan, Reacts Fiercely

Beyoncé's alter ego, Sasha Fierce, jolted out of her this weekend when she received some unwelcomed touching from a fan.

As she performed Monday at the Forum Copenhagen in Copenhagen, Denmark, the 31-year-old singer was slapped on the derrière by a male fan, which evoked a fiery reaction from her.

"I will have you escorted out right now, alright?" Beyonce responded after the man spanked her.

The incident occurred while she was playfully interacting with fans in the front row as she performed her No. 1 single Irreplaceable. The fan then overstepped the boundaries and slapped her on the behind as she walked away.

As you can see for yourself in the video, the wife of rapper Jay-Z and mother of their 17-month-old daughter Blue Ivy wasn't too keen on the boundary-crossing slap.

Beyonce was performing in Denmark as part of the European leg of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

The Run the World singer will perform in Europe for the rest of the week before taking most of June off prior to her North American leg, which will commence in Los Angeles on June 28.

2. Tom Hardy Grants Ailing Mother's Wish

Kayleigh Duff dreamed of dining with actor Tom Hardy and during a break from her cancer treatment on May 27, Katie Birch helped grant her best friend's wish!

Birch connected with Hardy after his fiancee's sister saw Duff on a British talk show talking about her wedding (another milestone she dreamed of doing after being diagnosed with the same rare and aggressive form of cancer that killed her father when she was just eight) and contacted the show to arrange the surprise meeting.

"I nearly died when I saw him," the 23-year-old Duff said. "I just thought we were having a day out in London. He was so lovely and down to earth. We had lunch and tea and scones and he bought me a diamond necklace."

According to the paper, Duff is due to begin a more intensive form of chemotherapy when she returns from a Florida vacation (another item on the wishlist) with her 2-year-old son, Kai.

3. Adam Levine Explains Anti-America Comment

The Voice fans took to Twitter in droves during last night's elimination episode when a live mic caught mentor Adam Levine saying "I hate this country" after he felt America made some particularly poor voting decisions, sending home a Team Levine fave.

After the online hubbub, Levine took to Twitter in an attempt to clear the air with four messages:

UPDATE: Levine, via NBC, has issued the following statement: "I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night's elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results. I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show."

5. Nicki Minaj Not Returning to 'American Idol'

Hours after Mariah Carey confirmed that she would be leaving American Idol after her first season, Nicki Minaj has also unveiled that she will be not be returning to the show.

The 30-year-old rapper revealed the news via Twitter on Thursday, writing:

"Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn't trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!"

"Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to 'American Idol' and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season," FOX, FremantleMedia, and 19 Entertainment said in a joint statement. "Given her extremely busy career, we understand and respect her decision and wish her the best."

Minaj and Carey, who replaced two-season judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, were known for their tense relationship on the show, which often turned the media spotlight on them.

With the two departed and last original judge Randy Jackson having uttered his last "dawg" at the American Idol judges' table, Keith Urban is the only Season 12 judge who may return for the singing show's thirteenth season.

Urban says he has yet to be informed of his future on the show.
