Tina Knowles, the mother of global superstar Beyoncé, opened up about the challenges her daughter faced growing up.


This revelation sheds light on the journey of the singer from a timid girl to the Queen Bey known worldwide today.

Tina Knowles reminisced about Beyoncé’s early years, describing her as “very shy.”

This might come as a surprise to many who see Beyoncé as the epitome of confidence and strength, according to Billboard.

Yet, like many children, Beyoncé faced her share of difficulties. “Beyoncé got bullied a bit,” Tina revealed, her voice tinged with emotion.

Despite her shyness, there was an inner strength in Beyoncé.


Tina recounted a poignant moment when her daughter stood up against bullying—not for herself, but for someone else.

“The day that she stood up for someone … she didn’t stand up for herself, she stood up for them,” Tina shared.

“I’m getting emotional talking about it. I couldn’t have been more proud of her.”

This incident highlighted Beyoncé’s innate sense of justice and compassion. These are traits that have only grown stronger over the years.

Tina Knowles has always been a firm believer in nurturing individuality, according to Vibe.


Her approach to parenting was shaped by the unique personalities of her daughters—Beyoncé, and Solange, and their close friend Kelly Rowland.

Tina’s reflections on their childhoods offer a glimpse into the diverse and dynamic household that fostered these talented women.

Solange, Beyoncé’s younger sister, has always been an activist, according to Just Jared.


In contrast, Kelly Rowland, who grew up alongside Beyoncé and Solange, was the peacemaker of the group.

Tina Knowles fondly remembered her as a “little peacemaker,” always striving to protect and harmonise.

“Kelly was always this kid that tried to protect everybody,” she continued.

Beyoncé, now a mother herself, is imparting the same values and lessons to her children that she learned from her mother.

Tina, now a grandmother to 12-year-old Blue Ivy and 6-year-old twins Rumi and Sir, reflects on how these lessons are being passed down.


Recently, Blue Ivy faced negative comments about her dancing during the Renaissance Tour.

Tina Knowles shared how Beyoncé turned this into a teachable moment for her daughter.

“It was a great life lesson because her mom said, ‘Listen, if you let this get you down, then they win,’”

Tina recalled. “So you should go and work harder. And, you know, work harder and get your skills together and go out there and blast it.”

This advice encapsulates the resilience and determination that have been central to Beyoncé’s journey.


From facing bullies as a shy child to becoming a global icon, Beyoncé’s story is one of overcoming obstacles and staying true to oneself.

Tina Knowles’ insights offer a deeper understanding of the family dynamics that shaped Beyoncé, Solange, and Kelly Rowland.

Tina’s approach to parenting, focusing on individuality and resilience, has undoubtedly contributed to their success.


This philosophy has been effective, as evidenced by the accomplishments and strength of her daughters.

Beyoncé’s story serves as a powerful reminder that even the most confident and successful individuals have faced challenges and doubts.

The key lies in how one responds to these challenges.

For Beyoncé, the support and wisdom of her mother, coupled with her inner strength, have been instrumental in her journey to the top.
