In the latest episode of “Dad Knows Best,” Mathew Knowles, the father of Queen Bey herself, Beyoncé, has grabbed the mic to throw some shade at Columbia Records for not giving his daughter the Grammy love she deserves. In an interview that could have used some popcorn and a front-row seat, Mathew chatted with TMZ Live, giving us all a crash course in Grammy politics.
With a twinkle in his eye and a dash of sass, Mathew declared, “People don’t know the process,” as if he’s about to spill the juiciest secret in the music industry since auto-tune. According to him, Columbia Records, cue dramatic gasp, failed to put Beyoncé in the running for Album of the Year. Oh, the scandal!
Mathew, armed with his insider knowledge, dropped the bomb that record labels can only play fairy godmother to one artist per Grammy category. It’s like choosing your favorite child, but with more sequins and less bedtime stories.
And guess who else is in the mix? None other than Harry Styles and Adele, both waving the Columbia Records flag. Mathew slyly suggested that maybe, just maybe, Adele sold a few more records than Beyoncé. Shocking, right? But who needs facts when you can have conspiracy theories?
In a plot twist that even M. Night Shyamalan would envy, Mathew hinted at some serious label favoritism, proposing that maybe it was Adele’s turn to shine. After all, Beyoncé has had her share of the spotlight; it’s only fair to spread the Grammy love around, right? Who knew Grammy nominations were like Oprah’s giveaways, but with more divas and fewer cars?
As Mathew dropped his mic, he reminded us that he’s been in those Grammy rooms for a whopping 14 years, like a seasoned detective uncovering the mysteries of the music industry. Meanwhile, Beyoncé, ever the queen, scooped up four Grammys in 2023, probably sipping lemonade and wondering why Dad’s stirring the pot.
And so concludes this chapter of “As the Grammys Turn,” where the drama is as high as Beyoncé’s notes, and Mathew Knowles is the unexpected hero we never knew we needed. Until next time, stay tuned for more award show antics and family feuds fit for a platinum-selling album.
