Beyoncé’s Father Responds To Lemonade Lyrics

Mathew Knowles is a big fan of his daughter Beyonce’s latest album, despite claims a number of the lyrics are about their strained relationship.

The 34-year-old released her surprise album on Saturday (23Apr16), after debuting the new music in a TV special, and fans and critics alike have pounced on the meanings behind many of the songs, which centre on broken relationships and forgiveness.

Beyonce’s strained relationship with her dad, who managed her career for many years, appears to feature heavily, but the 64-year-old has refused to be drawn into the drama surrounding the scrutiny.

“There’s no way that we can get into the mind of Beyonce,” he said during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Make It Plain show. “Only Beyonce can answer who she specifically is talking to. I’d rather not get into speculation… I can only speak of being a proud father.”

Many gossips have also suggested the Lemonade film features lines which point to the fact Beyonce’s husband Jay Z may have cheated on her, and in the lead up to one song, the spoken word the superstar recites draw comparisons between the rap mogul and her father, who was unfaithful to her mother, Tina, during their marriage.

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

But Mathew, who was fired as his daughter’s manager in 2011, refused to comment on the meaning behind the lyrics.

“I know the response you want to get,” he said. “You’re not going to get that response.”

Instead, the father-of-four spoke of his pride, adding, “I am so proud of Beyonce, because that means the body of work that she did has made that type of impact on the market place. Everybody’s talking about it, everybody’s tweeting about it.”
