And it's all thanks to Beyoncé tickets. Johnson tweeted last weekend that after she bought the tickets with her rent money, her landlord was kicking her out of her place.

Johnson's tweet blew up, getting retweeted close to 10,000 times. Of course, some people claimed Johnson was just making it up for attention, but she maintains she's telling the truth.

"It is real. I got an eviction letter and everything," Johnson told BuzzFeed News. The concert was Saturday and she sent us some amazing Snapchats she took at the show.

"My priorities are definitely in check to be honest," she said. "I just am a die-hard Beyoncé fan." She said she's graduating college and wanted to go out with a bang. "I had the time of my life. Literally."

As for the apartment, Johnson thinks she'll be able to persuade her landlord to give her an extension on the rent. "I've never ever been late on rent before so I'm hoping she would have some mercy on me," she said.
