Guys, Tina Knowles knows what Beyonce’s Lemonade is about.
First, we had Beyonce’s dad wading into the conversation by stating that the lyrics are about ALL OF US – ‘she’s talking about you and everybody that is you, that’s who she’s talking about’ – but to be quite honest, he only left us even more confused.
Bey’s mum, Tina, however, is all about being honest. And she’s come right out and said that yes, Beyonce’s lyrics ARE about an affair. Ooh…
‘People make it all about the cheating and betrayal and, yes, that’s a part of it because that is something you have to heal from’, Tina told ABC13. ‘If you really listen to the poetry, it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people.’
She didn’t exactly confirm that the lyrics are about Beyonce and Jay Z, exactly. But she’s definitely talking about a personal betrayal.
Tina added that tonnes of people can relate to Lemonade, if they have ever been ‘betrayed and lied to.’ ‘It’s about the pain. And it’s about the healing process. It’s about how do you get past that and move on’, she added.
Of course, many have speculated that Bey could be drawing on her parents’ own experience – Matthew Knowles fathered a secret love child whilst married to Beyonce’s mum.
‘I remember my first little pity party and I called them crying and you know, they all came’, Tina remembered about the moment she found out about her husband’s affair. ‘We had a slumber party, and we watched old movies all night and ate ice cream. It was very healing.’
Those Knowles women are tough cookies.
