Hij weet niet of ze over hem gaan...

Mathew Knowles moet zich er weer even mee bemoeien. De vader van Beyoncé, die in het verleden zijn dochter al meermaals het schaamrood op de kaken bezorgde door privédingen in de media te roepen, nodigde zichzelf uit voor een interview met de SiriusXM-radioshow Make It Plain.

Presentator Mark Thompson onthulde dat Mathew Knowles hem zelf had gebeld, omdat-ie wilde reageren op de lyrics van verschillende nummers van Beyoncé's Lemonade. Er gaan immers aardig wat geruchten dat Bey in verschillende nummers doelt op haar vader, die verscheidene affaires had tijdens zijn huwelijk met Tina Knowles én losse handjes zou hebben.

Raar maar waar: Mathew Knowles deed het interview ten overstaan van zijn klas in de Texas Southern University (Knowles is daar leraar) en wilde zichzelf eigenlijk vooral even vrijpleiten.

Thompson wees Knowles meteen op de volgende monoloog die Beyoncé houdt in de visuele video van Lemonade:

'Did he bend your reflection? Did he make you forget your own name? Did he convince you he was a god? Did you get on your knees daily? Do his eyes close like doors? Are you a slave to the back of his hand? Am I talking about your husband or your father?'

Waarom Beyoncés vader reageerde met:

'I don't know, but I don't think so. I can say I've never in my life hit my daughter... There's no way that we can get into the mind of Beyoncé. Only Beyoncé can answer specifically who she was talking to... I'd rather not get into speculation so my answer is, I don't know. I don't know who she was referring to throughout the whole series. I can only speak of being a proud father. I think Beyoncé pushed the envelope of creativity on this HBO special.'

 

Daarna vroeg Thompson naar een duidelijkere call out van Beyoncés kant richting haar vader in Lemonade:

'You remind me of my father, a magician. Able to exist in two places at once. In the tradition of men in my blood, you come home at 3 A.M. and lie to me. What are you hiding?'

Mathew Knowles werd meteen wat geïrriteerder en antwoordde:

'I have no reaction, sir. I know the response you want to get. You're not going to get that response. But we could sit here and talk all night.'

Hmm...

Verder vertelde Mathew dat hij niet met Beyoncé heeft gesproken sinds Lemonade uitkwam, maar ze hebben blijkbaar nog wel steeds contact:

'The media would have you think I've never spoken to Beyoncé. But as you can see in the documentary, that me and Blue Ivy was playing. I'm a grown-up, I'm 64 years old, it doesn't bother me what people say about me. I know the facts. I know how many times I see my kids, and they speak to me so that's not important to me. No, I have not spoken to Beyoncé this week. Do I talk to her? Do I see her? Yes.'

Op de vraag of mensen het feit dat het album vooral gaat over de slippertjes van Jay Z moeten negeren, antwoordde Mathew resoluut:

'No, no, no, not at all! I think what Beyoncé's done is given us her best body of work... I think she has touched and brought awareness to a number of issues to this documentary. I think she's brought awareness to Black Lives Matter, I think she's brought awareness to challenges with marriages, I think she's brought to the forefront challenges with parents.'
