In an interview with Elle, Tina Knowles openly admits to “slapping her daughter for acting like a diva” while at a promotional event. Does this make anyone else extremely uncomfortable?
“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.”
If Tina said that Beyonce was acting like a diva, nobody’s going to argue with her. But seeing her get slapped in the face? That’s something I can’t imagine. In fact, in the same interview, Beyonce admits that she has a “power struggle” with husband Jay-Z, and that “if I didn’t respect someone, and they didn’t have that strength, then I would be bored.”
What would you bet that she learned that from her mother?
