Beyonce does a great job protecting her images and keeping all details in house, but her father may have dropped the ball during a recent interview.
Apparently everything that comes out of the Knowles camp may not be true, as her father spilled the beans on Beyonce's real age.
Mathew Knowles, father and former manager to Bey and Destiny’s Child, went on Breakfast Club to promote his new book, titled The DNA of Achievers.
While there were plenty of cool talking points in the piece (like details on her firing him as her manager, and meeting Jay Z for the first time) the part that grabbed listeners across the globe was about Beyonce's age. Beyonce’s well-publicized birthdate is Sept. 4, 1981, making her 34 years old. Papa Knowles insinuates in the interview that Beyoncé may actually be 36 or 37, saying that Pink, 36, and Usher, 37, were the exact same age as his daughter.
“[Destiny’s Child] had a competitiveness, LA [Reid] had a girls group but I bet you don’t know who his lead singer was… Pink. She was the exact same age as Beyoncé and there used to be this battle about which group was better. We had Usher, he was the same age. They were all 14 or 15 years old,” said Matthew Knowles.
While Papa Knowles may have dropped the ball on her real age, should we make a big deal about it?
I mean, even if Beyonce is 36 or 37, she still looks amazing. Odds are that her dad could even be wrong about the year she was born as well. I'm sure this one will get cleared up from her camp soon.
