Beyonce's Dad Calls the Elevator Incident a Ticket Selling Stunt

Beyonce's Dad Calls the Elevator Incident a Ticket Selling Stunt

Beyonce‘s father Mathew Knowles is claiming that his daughter’s incident in an elevator with hubby Jay Z and sister Solange Knowles was a “Jedi mind trick” to sell tour tickets.

The comment came when the music manager made an appearance on Houston’s Roula and Ryan Show.

“[They needed something to] ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. A Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of the time. [Snaps fingers] All I know is everyone is talking about it. Ticket sales went up, Solange‘s album sales went up 200 percent…” Mathew said.

Later in the clip, Mathew makes sure to remind us that he’s still the manager of Destiny’s Child, even though he is no longer Beyonce‘s manager. He even hints that a new album and reunion tour could be happening soon.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the comments made by Beyonce’s dad?
