Matthew Knowles Sticks Up For Solange

Published: Friday 5th Sep 2008 by Sam
Matthew Knowles stopped by a Houston radio station yesterday morning to defend daughter Solange, amid the press storm regarding her much-talked about Fox News interview. Let’s just say Matthew and the hosts butted heads on the matter lol. Check it out:

That was too funny! With Matthew not backing down, likewise the hosts, it made for one hell of an interview lol lol…

Your thoughts?

    three cheers for mathew and solange looking dumb. they need to shut up. and the host was right she needs to endear herself to america and work her way up just like every other artist. she could have dealt with it off the air.

    Matt..is starting to show why a parent shouldn’t manage their kids…was he givin’ ol boy “special k” a veiled threat?

    More or less, truth always has a way of revealing itself. If Solange continues to bite hands that feed her (the hands of the public and the media) then eventually the evidence will be too great for Mr. Knowles to perform damage control on via picking on radio personalities doing their jobs.

    I also recall Solange “being tired” when she got snippy on-air during a UK Morning Show… Seems a little of her nature with more and more scenes like this and from the FOX new show surfacing. Time will tell.

    I have to say that I was literally disgusted with the way the broadcasters handled the situation. It was rude and unprofessional. And made me literally disgusted to see them behave in that manner especially as an aspiring journalist.

    i love solange but she made herself look like a b****.

    I can completely understand where Matthew is coming from. I think the broadcasters were COMPLETELY unprofessional. I think Solange was right for what she said. Solange acknowledged something that made her uncomfortable. She wasn’t there to talk about Jay-Z and his situation or comparisions with her sister, she was there for promote her album. I think this is the first time that I’ve heard Solange respond in a ‘not’ so pleasant way and people were caught of guard so, it’s being made into she’s a b****, she’s this and that. I disagree. I don’t know her personally but, I’m sure it’s tough trying to do your own thing and constantly being compared and questioned.

    As far as what Matthew is saying, I think he was makiing reference to what the broadcaster said about not having “the right” to say what she said, and used the things that his daughter/artist has acquired through her writing ventures. People are going to think and say what they want, I respect that Solange isn’t trying to conform. She’s doing her things, speaking her mind, and being real about hers.

    I respect that.

    I agree with 6th poster, he just added fuel to the fire. Now people really won’t buy her album. Man is crazy anyway. Had the djs not called her a b**** and just said she was wack, he still would’ve called up there acting like he’s all gangsta and bragging about his finances and the family’s finances. Damn “new money” fool.

    Old money folks don’t brag!

    Some of ya’ll are being too harsh…no offense, but Solange did had a right to put that anchor in check…don’t bring up Jay-Z nor Beyonce when the interview is suppose to be about Solange and her new album!

    Solange is the more out spoken one n Beyonce is the laid back one.

    And why is acting like “Matthew and Tina” were the first names we knew. N**** you ain’t no star.

    She should be embarrassed because he made the situation worse. They clowned her on the fact that the people just didn’t vote for her song. lol

  17. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    who cares about her album sales
    or who she is as a matter…
    THEY WERE DEAD OUT THE ASS FOR EVEN SPEAKING ON SOMETHING SO IRRELEVANT. Just because she is outspoken doesnt mean shes a b**** or a diva.

    That s*** was offensive. And If BEYONCE WAS EVER OFFENED ON OR OFF THE AIR…IM PRETTY SURE SHE WOULD SAY SOMETHING. PEOPLE JUST KISS HER ASS AND MAKE HER UP 2 BE PERFECT SO WE WILL NEVER SEE THAT SIDE.

    C;Mon…I DONT CARE IF IT WAS SOLANGE, TINA, MICHELLE, LATOYA OR WHOEVER..STAR OR NO STAR..SHE WAS RIGHT..THAT WASNT PROFFESSIONAL @ ALL. SHE LISTEND TO THEM TRYNA GET THEIR “MEDIA-TAKE OUT” ON AND CHECKED THEM THEN AND THERE ON THE SPOT.

    I DNT CARE WHAT NOBODY SAYS..KUDOS SOLANGE…AND…WHAT THE HELL..KUDOS 2 KANYE ON THE BUSH/KATRINA COMMENT 2!

    YOU KNOW WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO HOP THE F*** OFF..KUZ IF SOMEBODY CAME UP TO ME WITH THE B******* MORE WOULD HAPPEN THAN A SIMPLE ATTITUDE. SOLANGE WAS RIGHT TO DO WHAT SHE DID. THINK ABOUT IT FOR YEARS AND YEARS WITHIN MOVIES SHE HAD DONE HER PREVIOUS ALBUM AND JUST IN GENERAL SHE IS ALWAYS QUESTIONED ABOUT SOMEHTING THAT HAS ABSOLUTELLY NOTHING TO DO WITH HER. ANYBODY WOULD GET PISSED..AND ON THIS ROUND SHE JUSS DONT GIVE A F*** ANYMORE WHICH I DONT BLAME HER…BUT THE INTERVIEWERS IN THIS ONE NEEDA GET THEY S*** ROCKED THEY WAS VERY UNPROFFESIONAL AND IF SOMEBODY CALLED MY DAUGHTER A B**** BETTA BELIEVE THAT INTERVIEW WOULD HAVE BEEN IN REACHIN DISTANCE..

    matthew’s face is unproffessional LOL XD

  23. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    I hate all these people saying she needs to be endearing and work her way up. To me that’s a way of saying you need to kiss ass and be completely fake. If you get Solange’s album, it’s not a statement of who she is trying to be, it’s a statement of who she is. In my opinion i think Solange was thinking with her heart and not her mind.

    To the person who said Kelly didn’t sale 2 million album you are completely wrong she sold that from Simply Deep. Know the facts before you type!!!!

    i understand where mathew is coming from but the truth remains that if something is going on right now in a celebrity household or family they are going to wanna talk about it
    example ashley and jessica simpson, the jackson five,etc…
    Everyone wants to be noticed and appreciated for their own talent and for making their own way and no one likes to be compared all the time
    BUT MATHEW FORGETS THAT WITHOUT FANS PEOPLE LIKE BEYONCE AND DESTINY’S CHILD WOULDNT EVEN BE POPULAR, SO YES ARTISTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO LIVE THEIR LIVES BUT THEN AGAIN THEY CANT ACT LIKE THEY DID IT ALL ON THEIR OWN

  28. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    The part that trips me out is when he starts naming all those shitty songs she wrote. Who cares! And, why do we need to know how much money she has has and how many condos this chick got. Please, this family is whack. The only thing they care about is MONEY!

    Britney Spear’s secret rehearsal video

    Looks like Britney is back with a vengeance! Our MSN insider got their hands on some behind-the-scenes footage which shows her rehearsing with dancers to a seriously fresh new track. So … is she practicing for a tour, the VMAs, what???

    mathew knows that this issue was more personal b/c thats his daughter
    and he lied about him always defending his other clients
    look at mario, kelly rowland, michelle williams and all them other artists careers
    not that they arent talented but we all know for years mathew choose to focus on commercializing beyonce
    AND HE IS RIGHT SOLANGE IS NOT BEYONCE

  31. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    im not mad for solange for defending herself
    but she could of told the people that off camera or collect accurate information before saying anything
    i just think that she is a bitchy person with all her recent comments lately not just about the fox interview
    now i think she is a good song writer
    If you are getting more attention for doing something stupid or for say something bad
    rather than to have fans and reporters
    report on the great music that you are making
    then you are sending a bad vibe
    and it will make others judge you before getting to know the real solange or the real artist

    I THINK ITS HILARIOUS FOR MATHEW KNOWLES TO SAY THAT THE FIRST PEOPLE THAT WERE RECOGNIZED IN THE KNOWLES FAMILY WAS HIM AND HIS WIFE
    SHUT THE HELL UP YOU LIAR
    WE ALL KNOW THAT WITHOUT BEYONCE COMMERCIALIZING HER SELF THROUGH MATHEW
    WE WOULDNT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THAT FAMILY
    AND THE ONLY REASON WE KNOW ABOUT TINA IS B/C SHE IS WELL KNOWN FOR CREATING BEYONCE AND DESTINY CHILD’S OUTFITS

    i still think that solange didnt have to be so rude and ignorant about the whole situation
    and for her father to say that houston should be grateful that doesnt mean that if they hear or find out something about you they are not going to report it
    they wouldnt be doing their job if they only reported what was good news
    and this is america freedom of speech is for EVERYONE

    Solange was rude and ignorant. There is no need for her dad to threaten radio djs. Just let it go. That was so last week and people can make their own opinions.

  35. jasmine September 5, 2008

    Solange really acts like that an person to b quite honest with yall..she’s a real b****,who has a bad attitude…i use to stay across the street from her when she was married…and the only people who have rights to act like a b****,is beyonce and kelly rowland…because they are bad b******….solange needs to work her way up to the top wit some good music,and with a good attitude..and get on beyonce and kelly rowlands level…then she can have that stink attitude

  36. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    lol@ the “why yall being so hard on Solange” posts. Bottom line, she started this s*** by flippin out about nothing with the reporter. The djs were wrong for calling her a b**** which is unprofessional but she too needs to check her unprofessional attitude at the door. As much as she wants people to see her as her own woman and not “beyonce’s little sister” she sure as hell acts like people is suppose to bow down to her because she’s “beyonce little sister”. you can’t have it both ways honey, make up your mind what you want!

  37. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    this is crazy this s*** has been blown all out of proportion all solange simply said was “i have to say that introduction was unprofessional…..please dont tie me in with my brother-in-law’s establishment or family” but by the way people or carrying on…..it seems like she cussed every one out and then refused to talk alll she simply said was please dont talk about that (b/c that s*** was really and truly mad rude) and after the lady apologized solange went on with her interview with no attitude or anything she juss checked they’re asses and handled her biz now thats PROFESSIONAL…and this s*** about “who is she to check somebody” people no matter who you are no one should hold their tongue when they feel uncomfortable or disrespected solange is a damn human before anything else and if somebody on the street somewhere disrespected one of you you would probably check their ass too….most likely in a nasty way so people SDFU this is something that should have ended when solange signed off of that damn show…..FOX with their Messy asses

    Okay, shut up Matthew.. Your daughter ain’t all that..

    I understand him taking up for Solange but she was rude to the anchorwoman. When she realized she made a mistake, she should’ve apologized.. Not saying those radio people were right either but Mr Knowles should’ve just let it go..

    solong needs to get it together the only reason we even talking about her is because she is beyawnce’s little sister. That is the platform that got her where she is now not because she’s all that, the world don’t evolve around the knowles family. The jackson has way more talent in there family. Until she do right by the media everything you do solong gonna fail, pride cometh before fall!!

  42. Anonymous September 6, 2008

    Oh I get it based on the money that the knowles have they have earned the right to be arrogant and bitchy? Why did matthew feel it necessary tom mention what solong has in reference to her condo’s You can tell people that ain’t used to nothing. If it wasn’t for matthew and tina pimping beyawnnnce like they do, they would not have what they got now. I see where she get her little bow down and worship me attitude, the apple don’t fall far from the tree.

  43. Ashley September 6, 2008

    Why are they still talking about this s*** come on this is old news they are very disrespectful I feel like they shouldn’t ask solange nothing about Jay-Z because she don’t have a damn thang to do with Jay-Z and I feel like the news station tricked her I mean come on if i’m doing a radio station and I hear someone introduce me I gonna feel like it’s on air that person made it seem to be on air so they made themselves look stupid and dumb they thought they made her look stupid but end up making themselves look like a damn fool they just wanted some publicity attention.

Id stick up for her and Kelly Rowland any day. I think Mr. Knowles did a great job defending her.
