Tina Knowles Shares Beyoncé Was ‘Shy & Got Bullied’ Growing Up

International superstar Beyoncé has come a long way since her “shy” upbringing.

Tina Knowles recently posted a clip of an interview with Vogue on her Instagram page where she chatted about some of her favorite moments from the childhoods of her “three girls,” daughters Beyoncé, Solange, and her honorary child, Kelly Rowland.

Speaking on Beyoncé’s demeanor as a child, she revealed,

“Beyoncé, she was very shy and she got bullied a bit but the day that she stood up for someone — she didn’t stand up for herself she stood up for them. I’m getting emotional talking about it. I was just, I couldn’t have been more proud of her.”

Addressing her second-born Solange, Tina Knowles said,

“Solange, was her signing a petition in school, she was only in like fifth grade and she was out getting petitions signed. So she’s always been an activist.”

Solange is known for using her music to speak on pressing issues. Her 2016 critically acclaimed album “A Seat at the Table” is often praised for empowering Black women. In addition, she frequently uses her platform and resources to advocate for marginalized groups.


Tina Knowles spoke on how Kelly Rowland came to live with her family at 11 years old during a recent chat on Today with Hoda & Jenna. She also came to Kelly Rowland’s defense last week after she was mistreated by a security guard at the Cannes Film Festival. Shining more light on her beautiful relationship with the “Like This” singer, she shared with Vogue,

“Kelly was always this kid that just tried to protect everybody. I have a memory of her with her best friend Barbara and her being a mediator and just being this little peacemaker.”

Tina Knowles captioned her video,

“Each child is different! But all so special. I believe kids are born with their personalities. My three girls All handled things very differently. Learn their personalities and respect the individuality. Never compare the negatives , always praise the positive differences and pay attention to the things that you can brag on about them. They love it and it encourages positive behavior.”
