Tina Knowles Jokes Beyonce Can Be ‘Really Mean’ Backstage on Tour

Beyoncé calls her stage persona “Sasha Fierce,” but her mother, Tina Knowles, has also seen the fierceness in action behind the scenes.

Knowles, 69, appeared on Sherri on Tuesday, October 31, telling host Sherri Shepherd that she had a conversation with Beyoncé, 42, about her backstage behavior.

“We laughed about this recently because I was saying, ‘Girl, you get really mean back there,’” Knowles said. “I am really happy that I don’t have to be back there anymore.”

Knowles put Beyoncé’s “mean” behavior in context, saying that it comes in ”the heat of the moment.” She added that the “Break My Soul” singer would often be remorseful.

One of the surprise highlights of the Renaissance concerts was Beyoncé’s oldest daughter, 11-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, joining her on stage for a powerful dance routine. Blue Ivy performed during a medley of “My Power” and “Black Parade,” and according to her grandmother, had to convince Beyoncé she was ready to perform.

“She was watching the girls rehearse and she said, ‘I think I’m ready to go on stage.’ And her mom said, ‘No, no, I don’t think so, Blue,’” Knowles recalled on Tuesday. “And then she thought about it and she said, ‘If you work hard and you really come with it, then we’ll let you go one time.’ So it was supposed to be a one-time thing.”

Blue Ivy made her first appearance during the May 26 show in Paris in front of 70,000 people, and she was so impressive that her “one-time” appearance became a regular feature of the tour.
