Beyonce disses her own mother after saying this…

We have all, from time to time, been a bit . . . inventive with the truth, when it comes to interactions with our parents. “Mom, this halibut is amazing, so, so good.” “No, Uncle Maxwell, for real , I love these dress socks to an extreme degree.” It is often easier, to avoid any hurt feelings or awkward silences, to just smile and nod and say, “Thank you so much.”
So we can all probably relate, on some level, to the following anecdote, revealed by Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles , on the Today show this week, regarding Beyoncé’s wedding to Jay Z .
Knowles, a fashion designer, made her daughter her wedding dress, a strapless gown with multiple tiers, which was not seen by any of us until it appeared in the 2011 music video for “I Was Here.” (It has since been seen in various clips shared by the singer.) Knowles told the Today show hosts that Beyoncé revealed to her, after the fact, that she . . . may not have loved the dress. “She was so sweet to let me do that. She came back later one day and she said, ‘You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress.’” (Ever tactful, that Beyoncé.) Tina continued, “Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart.”
Tina made all of Beyoncé’s outfits when she was a part of Destiny’s Child, and launched her House of Deréon clothing line with Beyoncé in 2004.
Perhaps the lesson here is, if Beyoncé can own up to how she really felt about her mother’s work on her wedding dress , and it was all good, you, too, should feel justified and O.K. about coming clean to your parents about any grievances or previously masked frustrations, as well.
