Tina Knowles Lawson (Ms. Tina) spoke with ABC Houston about her daughter, Beyonce’s internet breaking visual CD Lemonade. Ms. Tina calls it a story of hope and redemption.
“People make it all about the cheating and betrayal and, yes, that’s a part of it because that is something you have to heal from,” Tina Knowles-Lawson said of Beyoncé’s creation. “If you really listen to the poetry it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people.”
“I remember my first little pity party and I called them crying and you know, they all came,” she recalled. “We had a slumber party, we watched old movies all night and ate ice cream–it was very healing.”
Now, happily remarried to actor Richard Lawson, Knowles-Lawson says he and her daughter are both on paths of renewal, leaning on each other turn lemons into lemonade.
“My children are my rock and they are,” she said. “Its just been the best gift god could have given me.”
