Fair warning, this article serves a dual purpose: to share a photo of Beyoncé smiling happily beside her father post-"Lemonade" and to alert the world to the genius of Tina Knowles Instagram account. Let's proceed.
Amid rumors that Bey's latest album makes reference to her father Mathew Knowles' alleged infidelity, among other things, Beyoncé's mother posted a photo of her daughter in the arms of her ex-husband on Thursday.
"Houston Concert proud dad!!!!" she captioned the photo, presumably taken after Queen B's stop in Houston on her Formation world tour.
With lyrics off "Lemonade" like, "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?," many assumed that the father-daughter relationship was strained.
“There’s no way we can get in the mind of Beyoncé," he said. "Only Beyoncé can answer specifically who she was talking to. If we say, she was talking, yes or no, it would just be speculation. And so, 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 could only speak of being a proud father.”
But the real star here is T-I-N-A. For the Beyoncé-inclined, following the woman responsible for the House of Deréon on social media is a must. Besides posting behind-the-scenes peeks and family updates like above, just trust that Tina Knowles regularly slays your Instagram feed.
Beyoncé tickets? Hundreds of dollars. Regular Tina Knowles hilarity? Priceless.
