You’d think that your wedding dress would be one of the most beautiful dresses you’d ever wear in your life, right? But for Beyonce, she wasn’t that smitten with hers.
Beyonce married Jay Z way back in 2004 in a secret ceremony, but we were allowed a peek at her bridal gown years later when she played wedding footage in her 2011 video, I Was Here.
We thought Bey looked lovely in her strapless ivory frock, but her mum has now revealed that actually, Beyonce wasn’t head over heels about it at the time.
Tina Knowles, who designed the wedding dress for her daughter, said: ‘She was so sweet to let me do that.’
‘She came back later one day and she said, “You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress.” Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart.’
So basically, Bey did her mama a favour by letting her design her dress, even though it wasn’t necessarily what she would have picked. Serious good daughter points.
Tina was also keen to clear up those rumours that she lied about where Beyonce was during the BET Awards as the weekend.
When her mum went up to accept Bey’s Video Of The Year Award, many thought she was stumbling over her words and suggested she was covering for the superstar.
‘On behalf of my beautiful daughter, who is on a plane’, Tina told the crowd. ‘She had to run straight from the stage and get on the plane and fly to London for a concert. Hopefully she’ll make it in time. But that’s how important this awards show was for her to show up.’
The weird thing was, Bey’s first Formation gig wasn’t until 28 June and was in Sunderland, not London.
Taking to Instagram to explain, Tina wrote: ‘ I did make a mistake on the city and the day. I asked why did she have to leave early and was told by a member of her staff that ‘she had to get back in time for her concert’ and that she actually should have been there 2 days before, as the tour has been down for a month.’
She added: ‘I want to ask what would be the point of lying to the public and knowing that anyone could see when the date was. Any one with good sense could see that! I am hurt and disappointed because I know what kind of work, sacrifice, and personal Money it took for her to do this show and support the Bet Award show and to give her fans that did not get to attend the concert a piece of her show.’
