BUZZ: Beyoncé pays tribute to fan who was reportedly fatally stabbed for ‘voguing’ to her song: ‘Rest in power’

killed for “voguing” to her music.

“Rest in power O’Shae Sibley,” read the message that was written in white letters on the “Cuff It” singer’s official website.

The Grammy winner’s homage came three days after Sibley was killed at a Brooklyn gas station Saturday.

In video surveillance obtained by The Post, Sibley — who is black — and three of his friends stopped at a local Mobil gas station to fill up their car.

As two of the men began dancing to songs from Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” album, another group of people standing outside the convenience store began talking to them.

“Rest in power O’Shae Sibley,” the tribute read.

The two groups exchanged words for a few minutes before they dispersed.

However, the footage then showed the groups confronting each other once again — but this time, their altercation turned physical.

Sibley, dressed in neon-pink swimming trunks, was standing behind a black SUV, seemingly in shock after he was stabbed. He then disappeared from the camera’s view behind the vehicle as his friends and bystanders rushed to his aid.
