Beyonce's Dad Made Comments About Chloe Bailey That Are Really Upsetting to See

Fans are shocked by the way Beyonce‘s dad Mathew Knowles spoke about his daughter’s protégé Chloe Bailey in a new interview.

The former manager of Destiny’s Child spoke on the Leah’s Lemonade radio show this week and responded to people who are comparing Chloe to a younger Beyonce. For those that don’t know, the sister duo Chloe x Halle is signed to Beyonce‘s Parkwood management company and it’s known that she has helped guide their careers.

“Do you see the comparison? Like the same thing that you saw in young Beyonce, do you see that in Chloe Bailey?” host Leah A. Henry asked.

Mathew responded, “You’ve got to be kidding me, right? You’re asking me that question? Are you actually serious that you are comparing that young lady to Beyonce?”

Leah then said that fans think that Chloe could play Beyonce if a movie were to be made about the singer’s life.

Mathew replied, “Okay, you’re talking about if somebody was doing a movie, not talent-wise. Talent-wise? Are you telling me talent-wise, somebody is an idiot enough to compare her to Beyonce, talent-wise?”

“They say she’s literally like a young Beyonce in the making,” Leah responded. Mathew then said, “I’m asking you a yes or no question. Are you telling me someone’s an idiot enough to compare her to Beyonce, talent-wise? Are there people saying her talent is equal to Beyonce? They’re an idiot. Period.”

Mathew still wasn’t done and said, “That’s actually insulting to Beyonce. I mean, if you want to call out some like Barbra Streisand or you know, some people like that, like come on, man, really?… I want to get off this topic.”

While it’s undeniable that few people have the same talent level as Beyonce, it’s upsetting to see how dismissive Mathew was of a talented person like Chloe, who has his daughter’s full support.

Do you think the woman in this video interviewing then 11-year-old Beyonce is Kris Jenner?

The video, from 1992, was shared by the 38-year-old “BROWN SKIN GIRL” singer’s dad Mathew Knowles on Instagram on Thursday (December 12).

The throwback video features Beyonce being interviewed by a woman who resembles the now 64-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.

In the clip, Beyonce discusses overcoming stage fright during her days as part of the girl group Girls Tyme.

“It literally sounds and looks JUST like her!” one fan tweeted, while another fan tagged Kris and wrote, “@KrisJenner is that you in this oversized blazer?”

Yet another fan wrote, “This is Kris Jenner interviewing Beyoncé as a child. The universe is playing in our faces like who knew either of those people would be where they are now. Crazy.” Another tweeted, “Is this a glitch in the matrix.”

Some fans, though, aren’t convinced it’s Kris. Watch the video here to decide for yourself!

In the interview, Mathew claimed that both Beyonce and fellow Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland were victims of sexual harassment by two members of the group Jagged Edge, which took place allegedly while the two acts were on tour in the early 2000s.

“Now, remember the girls are minors. They’re 16-years-old. The guys are 21, 22-years-old. I have a fiduciary duty with minors, by the law, there’s a certain way I have to manage that,” he said.

“I got a call from Kelly and Beyoncé, and I talk about this in the book in detail, saying that they were constantly being harassed by two of the members of Jagged Edge. I couldn’t have that. I literally had to put the guys off the bus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. That began all of this drama,” he went on to explain.

When asked how a father dealt with men trying to sleep with his daughter, he said: “We won’t talk about that on camera.”

Mathew Knowles Says If Beyonce Had Darker Skin, It Would Have 'Affected Her Success'

Beyonce‘s father, Mathew Knowles, is discussing colorism in the music industry.

The 67-year-old record executive and talent manager sat down for an interview on SiriusXM’s The Clay Cane Show on Wednesday (June 19).

During the interview, Mathew talked about the perception of lighter and darker skin tone.

“In the music industry there’s still segregation. Programmers, especially at pop radio, [have] this imagery of what beauty looks like. They wanted that imagery to be the same as singing those records,” he explained.

“If you look back, even like Whitney Houston, if you look at those photos, how they lightened her to make her look lighter in complexion…there’s a perception, colorism, the lighter that you are, the smarter, the more economically…there’s a perception all around the world about color, even with black folks.”

When asked whether he thought Beyonce would have been affected if she had darker skin, he said: “I think she would have had – I think it would have affected her success. And I use Kelly Rowland as an example. She’s a great example. But you know, the great thing is Kelly did exceptional outside of America, especially in Australia. Kelly sold over four million records. She just got off script.”

SiriusXM’s The Clay Cane Show airs weekdays from 12-1 p.m. ET on SiriusXM Urban View channel 126.
