Beyonce’s pops Matthew Knowles recently talked to E! News about his daughter’s new Lemonade album, more specifically about a line about calling “Becky with the good hair.” Well, father knows best right?
“Let me tell you who she’s talking about, can I tell you who she’s talking about? She’s talking about you,” he told E! News exclusively. “You put that in context for you personally. She’s talking about you and everybody that is you, that’s who she’s talking about.”
I said on the air that while I don’t think these songs are fully autobiographical, I believe that parts are real and others are enhanced to make it the best piece of work possible. Seems like Mr. Knowles agrees:
“I think that’s the beauty of her creativity and I think that’s what makes it so special, is that it relates to everyone,” he explained. “Every one of us have been disappointed before and have had to go through the grieving process of anger and, you know, disappointment and then acceptance and forgiveness. And I think that’s why this again is touching so many people, because it’s universal. Everybody can relate to it.”
