Beyoncé’s Dad Says He Knows Who She’s Singing About in ‘Lemonade’
“Let me tell you who she’s talking about.”
Speaking with E! News, Knowles said, “Let me tell you who she’s talking about, can I tell you who she’s talking about? She’s talking about you. You put that in context for you personally. She’s talking about you and everybody that is you, that’s who she’s talking about.” Ahh, good to know.
The proud dad believes it’s “the beauty of her creativity” that “makes it so special.” He explained. “Every one of us have been disappointed before and have had to go through the grieving process of anger and, you know, disappointment and then acceptance and forgiveness. And I think that’s why this again is touching so many people, because it’s universal. Everybody can relate to it.”
“As a father I am extremely proud of Beyoncé,” he beamed. “I mean, Beyoncé just keeps pushing the envelope, pushing the envelope and setting an example of the whole industry.”
And push Queen Bey does, that’s for sure. The Beyhive quite literally exploded when she dropped Lemonade on Saturday night, and everyone wants to know who its about. IS it autobiographical? Is Bey calling out some of husband Jay-Z’s rumored infidelity? Who is “Becky with the good hair?” (It’s apparently not Rita Ora OR Rachel Roy, so just stop).
Interestingly enough, unauthorized Beyoncé biographer, J. Randy Taraborrelli, who penned Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story, told Cosmopolitan.com he believes Lemonade is actually about Beyoncé’s parents, Mathew and Tina Knowles.
We might not ever get a full explanation, and that’s probably just fine with Mrs. Carter. Her Formation World Tour will kick off its North America dates Wednesday evening in Miami.
