Beyonce Explains….

Beyoncé says she meant no disrespect to the seven astronauts who died in the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion after she used audio from the disaster in her new love song “XO.”

The song opens with a six-second audio sample from Jan. 28, 1986, of now-retired NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt saying, “Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction.”

Under fire from friends and family of the astronauts for supposedly making light of the disaster, the pop star, 32, tells ABC News that the sample is actually meant to be a tribute to the dead. 

“My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster,” she says in a statement. “The song ‘XO’ was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones and to remind us that unexpected things happen, so love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you.”

 I told you she would offer an explanation!
