Is Beyonce lying about her age?
There have been many rumours about Beyonce's age for many years, and now Matthew Knowles, Beyoncé's father, added to the conspiracy during a new interview with The Breakfast Club.
Many people believe Beyoncé is older than the 34 years she claims to be, which wouldn’t be a first in Celebville. The official word is that Beyoncé was born in 1981, making her thirty four years old. But while chatting to a New York radio station, Matthew said: "(Destiny’s Child) had a competitiveness, L.A Reid had a rival girl group at the time, and I’ll bet you don’t know who the lead singer was... It was Pink! And she was the exact same age as Beyonce." However, Pink is two years older than Beyonce! He continued: "Then you had Usher, who was the same age, they were all 14 or 15 years old, living in Atlanta." Usher was born in 1978, which also makes him older than Bey.
Gabrielle Union once told a website in 2008 that they were friends "as teenagers," even though they are nine years apart. She said at the time: "Beyonce and I have been friends since we were teenagers. We go to the same hairstylist now and you know how those bonds are! B is such a polite, nurturing person and a joy to work with. It's easy to work with her because she is a good friend of mine."
So is Beyonce closer to 40 than she wants us to think? We’ll love you at any age, girl!
