Weeks after the hunt for the true identity of "Becky with the good hair" began, Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, has stepped forward to confirm that her daughter's new video album Lemonade is about adultery, which everyone, especially Jay Z, already knew. In an interview with ABC 13 News, mother Knowles explains her hypothesis that beyond cheating, it may also be about redemption.
Here's a transcript of Tina's take on Lemonade:
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.
If you really listen to the poetry it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people.
It could be about anyone's marriage. I think that everybody at one time or another has been betrayed and lied to and it's about the pain--and it's about the healing process--and it's about how do you get past that and move on.
