Tina Admits To Slapping Beyonce For Diva Behavior

Tina Admits To Slapping Beyonce For Diva Behavior *This one kinda went overhead, so don’t shoot me if I’m late in posting LOL*
In a recent interview with Elle magazine, Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles, admitted to getting physical her superstar daughter over dodgy behavior:

Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, also opened up about slapping her daughter for acting like a diva during a promotional appearance.

“My husband came up and said, ‘Tina! She’s got the No. 1 record on the radio!’ I said, ‘I don’t care!'” Tina says. “I was terrified. I had seen people take your child and turn them into something you didn’t want them to be.

“I taught my girls to pick up their own suitcases,” she adds. “Pretty is as pretty does. Like my mother said, ‘You got to be cute on the inside.'” {Source}

LMAO! Granted I would pay to have been a fly on the wall when that went down, it is very admirable. The last part she said about seeing the industry change your children had me thinking: if only other celeb parents would take a leaf out of Mama Knowles’ book (See: Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse). Yes, slapping a grown woman may sound extreme, but having someone genuine there to put you in check when need be would, I’m more than sure, do many of these off the rails celebs a lot of good.

Your thoughts?

    Bad. Whenever your parent puts a hand to you, it makes you want to act even more unruly than before. Especially if you’re feeling independent already.

    Good! I am on Tina’s side with this one! I would’ve slapped Matthew for coming up to me and saying “she’s got the #1 record just for being a diva!” A lot of these celebrities these days need to be put in check a lot more often and be reminded of where they actually came from.

    Beyonce wasn’t grown when this happened. I read the full Elle article and Beyonce was 15 and it was right after “No No No” had blown up. Tina said it was the only time she had put her hands on B. Beyonce should consider herself lucky because my mama put them thangs on me up until I was 18, lol.
