Something tells us he’s not the most reliable spokesman on Bey’s plans…
Mathew Knowles Hints Toward Destiny’s Child Reunion Tour
Beyonce’s daddy is just running his mouth this week. During a sit-down radio interview, he let everyone know he still runs the show as Detiny’s Child’s official manager, and might be throwing Beyonce and crew back up on stages across the world in the near future.
As the father of Beyonce Knowles and the manager of Destiny’s Child he’s bound to have the scoop.
So fans of the Say My Name hit makers will be excited to hear that Mathew Knowles has hinted at a possible reunion of R&B divas Beyonce, 32, Kelly Rowland, 33 and Michelle Williams, 34.
The 63-year-old music executive spoke to the Roula And Ryan Show on Houston radio station 104.1 KRBE and said: ‘Folks don’t know it but I am still the manager of Destiny’s Child.
‘When you see Destiny’s Child on TV and you see them doing songs together slowly, slowly – now they’ve done two, they were recently on TV – I don’t know, it might be another Destiny’s Child album coming.’
Although the group officially disbanded in 2006 and Kelly is currently expecting her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon, in June, Michelle quietly released Say Yes – a song which featured both Kelly and Beyonce.
Mathew continued: ‘There might be this tour that makes history, Destiny’s Child featuring Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle. Can you imagine what that would be like?’
Possibly…but we’re sure he could imagine the dollar signs associated with that much more clearly than he can see the fan experience.
Keen to know more but aware Mathew wouldn’t be able to reveal too much, Roula and Ryan asked him to ‘cough twice if that is happening in the next year’, which he did right away.
And although there have been rumours that the father and daughter are currently estranged. Mathew maintains they are still as close as ever.
He gushed: ‘She’s still just my girl. We talk every Sunday. She’s still the humble, generous person she’s always been.’
Mathew might just be holding on to a bit of wishful thinking with this one. Kelly is damn near crowning and he’s trying to book her on stages???
Besides…if Beyonce wasn’t trying to be bothered with him professionally as a solo artist all those years back, would she really have time for that now — especially considering how far she’s come without him??
