Apparently she's a whole two years older than we thought
UH OH – we reckon Beyonce may be having a few stern words with her dad, Mathew Knowles, who spilled to The Breakfast Club radio show that his daughter is two whole years older than she claims, shortly before she was due to perform her raunchy new tune ‘Feeling Myself’ with Nicki Minaj at the Tidal X: 1020 Amplified by HTC concert in New York.
Mathew made the faux pas when he revealed that Beyonce is the ‘exact same age’ as 36-year-old stars Usher and Pink, rather than the age of 34 which the public thought her to be. OH DEAR. Is this just a case of forgetfulness for Daddy Knowles, or has he accidentally let out a huge secret? We’re going to need a birth certificate to figure this one out…
However, it looks like the pop superstar took the whole thing in her stride, rocking up to the Tidal event in a cleavage-baring dress that made her look much younger than the thirty-something years – because who even knows anymore?! – that she really is. Later in the evening, the crowd went crazy for her performance with Nicki Minaj, for which Beyonce wore just a bubblegum pink leotard while booty-shaking with a posse of backing dancers. Looks like age is just a number for Bey.
The mother-of-one recently gave her first interview in two years. Talking to Beat magazine, she spoke openly about her mixed feelings towards success: ‘What does fear taste like? Success. I have accomplished nothing without a little taste of fear in my mouth.’ She also revealed that, if she was to dress up as a past ‘Beyonce’ for Halloween, she would channel herself in the video for either ‘Survivor’ or ‘Bootylicious’. Blast from the past!
