Almost all parents have a favorite child, even if they refuse to admit it.

Music manager Mathew Knowles -- father of singers Beyonce and Solange Knowles -- says he most proud of his youngest daughter Solange's achievements.

Beyonce's father says he is a "little more proud" of her younger sister Solange because Solo is humble and she achieved success "her own way" -- without stealing the ideas of others.

"(I'm) a little bit more proud of Solange, and I'll tell you why: because she chose to do it her way," he told the Fox 26 news network in Houston, Texas. "In the beginning, we wanted to mold her into this pop star, and that is not who she is and we were wrong; I was wrong, the record labels were wrong. She had a record deal (with a major label) and she said, 'I don't want it.' She wanted to do it her own way, and she did."

Solange won her first Grammy award for her critically acclaimed 2016 album A Seat at the Table, which earned the 30-year-old her first #1 ranking on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.

Beyonce famously fired her father in 2011 on the orders of her controlling husband, rap mogul Shawn "Jay Z" Carter.

    I thought he got fired for knocking up 20 year old THOTS?

  • n1kk1a

    I'm proud of her too!

  • Taylor Shirene

    The Beyonce shade is too real with Sandra. I know he did not say " she achieved success “her own way” — without stealing the ideas of others." Sandra be lying and adding all the time. Sandra got true hate for the Carters.

    Hey y'all.

  • Tawaii

    Did Solange have surgery because she looks different from first photo!

  • starbright9449

    He said this because he knew Solange would feel some type of way if he said he was more proud of Beyonce, obviously. Beyonce is fake and Solange is 'feisty', nothing is humble about Solange if you believe what most people who has met her has said. Beyonce keeps her bit*hness hidden. Wonder if Matthew still feels some type of way about Beyonce firing him.... Oh and there's the rumors of Beyonce selling her soul or whatever.

  • starbright9449

    Btw Sandra, you have time to post about this, what about a post about Beyonce's 'push party' or whatever the heck it's called?

  • NeverSurprised

    Sandra only quoted "her own way". So yes, he did say that. She has no quotes around "without stealing the ideas of others," so it is obvious that that additional language is her commentary, not Matthew's verbatim words.

  • NeverSurprised

    I like Solange. Liked her even more after she kicked Jay Z's behind in that elevator.

  • NovemberFling

    So he's still salty at Beyonce for siding with her mother over his scoundrel, low down, cheating ass? Solange's whole neo-soul artsy spiel is nothing more than an act - had she been successful as a pop star, she would still be singing pop jingles. In no way does her faux talent supersede her older sister's.

    Oh, and you Sandra, are an indescribable form of malevolence. The self hatred and vitriol has gnawed away at your soul like acid. Disgusting is too good a word for the likes of you.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    He likes Solange's spirit and her ability to curse him out at the drop of a dime everytime he pop up with a new baby....I still cant get that pic out of my head of the last one doing that split smh.

    Matt is just salty because he found out about the twins the same time "we" did ???

  • imright

    Bey has a new handler & Matt is mad about it. ????? too bad.

  • SuperScooper1

    You mean fired her father who worked for IBM to hire a man with no business acumen who enjoys being a front person for companies he has no real stake in as he drives his wife's career into the ground?

    I absolutely love Solange... A seat at the table was excellent and refreshing, in a music climate that is repetitive and predictable

  • Diva4lyfe

    Yes I truly believe he is a lil salty because she took her mom side but he should have known better. The thing with Solange she holds no punches and will let him know off the rip while Beyoncé just stop talking to him for a while. She did let him back in because he stated somewhere that he love babysitting Blue and how they just have so much fun together

  • iWasteTime

    I guess Solange paying those CS orders!
    #FOH Matty.

    He is proud she was able to step outside of Beyonce's shadow and succeed...so am i...it had to be tough following behind her sister

    I feel like she was humming a tune in that moment. Probably even writing another song in her head.

  • Yada Yada and etc.

    Solange and Beyonce are very different in personality and style just like me and my own sister. But let's not forget that Solange tried to be in that sexy pop star lane and it just didn't work for her. So she drastically changed up her image, shaved her head bald and tried to create her own lane to get out of Beyonces shadow because people were always comparing them. But you can best believe that if people took to Solange the way they did Beyonce and she could be as successful, she would do anything the record labels wanted her to do.

  • Ryan

    Oh man I remember this gif. Chicks trying to say Jay must've pissed her off so she was humming, trying to keep cool before she snapped ? Bish was just HIIIIIGGGGHHHH and feeling NO pain!

  • Renee26

    Did she really fire him because her husband said so or was it because he had that outside baby...huh huh

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Every parent has a favorite. I didn't realize this at first, but it's true.

  • Sexy CJ

    Mmmm..........Or..... Project Of MK-Ultra..........

  • NicoleZee

    Parents aren't supposed to have favorite children and they certainly shouldn't be more proud of one over the other, and they shouldn't say stuff like that out loud. Sad. I'll never forget the way Solange beat Jay's ass in the elevator. Classic. I still wonder what for, guess we'll never know! I'm glad I never had sisters. Me and my brother aren't close and we just stay out of each other's way. I only have one child, everyone tells me it's selfish to have an only child, but what good is it to have more kids if they aren't close and don't get along??? It's wonderful that Bey and her sister love each other so much!

  • Shira Harding-James

    Bad move Matthew, I understand what he means by his response, I just wouldn't of worded "more proud" in my response

  • Shira Harding-James

    I don't think so

  • Shira Harding-James

    Yes yes I agree

  • Shira Harding-James

    Like a breath of fresh air!

  • Shira Harding-James

    High on what you think?

  • Shira Harding-James

    Wait..,, the baby doing a split?

  • NicoleZee

    He's an idiot. A good parent loves their children equally and does not have favorites. That can really f*** up a child's self-esteem. Parents should just be happy and blessed to have multiple children. Plenty of folks can't get pregnant and will never be able to experience parenthood, so any parent should just be humble and grateful to have a child, I am. And even if I am blessed with another miracle, I would never treat my son any differently than I treat him now.

  • Renee26

    This looks like a pill high...but she has sang about high grade mary jane in her songs

    And wth was HE looking at LMAO they were on one that night

  • V Dubb

    Lol I don't have the energy today! How are you beautiful people doing today?!?!?!

  • NicoleZee

    I'm probably the same way Solange is, I have a bad temper sometimes and if you tell me to go left, I'll go right. But I don't think Beyonce' is dumb and I think she knows how to stand up for herself. Growing up, my parents tried to always tell me what to do and it never worked, so I got plenty of spankings for not doing what I was told and for having a smart and potty mouth. Some children march to the beat of their own drum, my son is the some way, can't tell that little boy nothing. I already know it will be tough raising him because he is the mini and male version of me :)!

  • V Dubb

    Me tooooooooooooooooooo bwahahahahaha

  • Renee26

    I know I'm the least favorite of my moms brood...surprisingly my brother who is the most disrespectful and hateful child is her favorite. It's crazy

  • zawnn

    Bey.. must keep her b!tchness hidden very very well... I met her n jay... jay was stank af and she was so sweet like a southern bell. Til he started acting mad mean and rushing her, she was so sweet about having to leave us cause her hubby was like Bish!! Let's fkn go! lol

  • Shira Harding-James

    Not true, Pink had a very successful career in pop and still switched labels and genres of music, because she was being true to herself. Same thing with Solange and I feel she was putting on an act wouldn't she be tired by now? It's been over a decade she has changed over.

  • Shira Harding-James

    I was just thinking the same!

  • NicoleZee

    From what my mom tells me, old school mothers from back in the stone age favored their boys., her mom did for whatever dumb reason. My mom was more responsible and had more common sense than her brothers but yet her parents always coddled her brothers so they grew up to be lazy men. Once my mom had her two kids, she treated us the same, but girls require more things because we are girls. If my mom did something for me, she did it for my brother when it was his turn or she gave him another option. For instance, if she bought me hair bows or got my hair done, she had to explain to my brother that boys do not wear clamps in their hair or go to the hairdresser! When my dad got me a pet rabbit, my mom told my brother he could also have a pet, but it had to be in a cage, He didn't want a caged animal, he wanted a cat and my mom told him that he was shit out of luck then! He still thought it was unfair. It's important to love children equally and not treat them any differently.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Some things shouldn't be said out loud Ratty Matty. I wonder which of his new kids is his favorite.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    And she did it the right way. She didn't have to tell the world her sisters private business just to gain support. I like both of them. They're both different and both talented.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Oh wow!

  • NicoleZee

    What??? So sad for you. That must be tough some days, but don't let anyone bring you down, even family. Keep your head up. My brother is the same as yours, but luckily he and my mom have no relationship anymore and I hardly talk to his crazy ass. She got tired of being disrespected for no reason, so I commend her for just moving on. I don't get when parents favor the troubled child, especially the criminals. My uncle was in and out of jail in the past and my grandma would just coddle him and make excuses for him like it was no tomorrow. My grandfather wanted to cut ties with him, but he wouldn't do so because of my grandma. Let my son end up in jail just one time and he'll need a Go Fund Me account to pay for his facial surgery once I'm done with him!! I'm not having it. I almost died having him, so he will grow up humbled and grateful to have a mom that cares for and loves him so much. I still get chills thinking about dying on that operating table. Parents and children should be grateful to have each other and treat each other well. Within an instant, anyone that we love can be taken from us, so I take nothing for granted.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Ouch!! That hurt my feelings and I'm not even Beyonce!! He should've just kept that statement to himself. I personally am proud of both ladies!!

  • Munchosgirl

    Solange has always walked to the beat of her own drum. As child she was very different from her sister, she, Beyonce and her parents have all said so. People have called her the basement child, which her room was moved to the basement because that is where she wanted to be, so she could play her music as loud as she wanted.

  • Tynamight

    I like that Solange is not a carbon-copy Beyonce. There's only one Beyonce. Only one Tina Turner. Only one Diana Ross. Carbon copies are booooooring!

  • guest

    Hilarious. What were they on?

  • Munchosgirl

    Who worked for IBM? Mathew worked at Xerox....

  • SuperScooper1

    Thanks for the correction. It was still a legitimate job where he learned business skills and actual business acumen. Showing up and "saying" you're a boss is different from hustling and knowing how business works. Real hustlers move in silence.

  • Torae

    I think Beyonce looks up to Solange..to me Solange seems like the little big sister.

  • NicoleZee

    Sine we're talking about musicians, I'm wondering why Bruno Mars doesn't have a tour date for Atlanta this year??? WTF?? He came last time and I had too much fun!! I hope he adds Atlanta soon, I'm thinking they're waiting to see if he can perform at the new football stadium. He was at Philips Arena last time.

  • Tea??

    I'm proud of solonge too, she found her lane After trying the pop route. But him he's probably more happy because he gets a little royalty check from being on her album ? We all know his kids (mainly Beyoncé) have been his bread and butter for years and when she cut him off he started leaking stories about her and selling her sh*t to get by.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Beyonce had to let go her dad or else the baby mom would ask for her ..

    Matthew is smart. Great way to get some headlines during Billboard Award weekend.

    He loves Beyonce more but Respect Solange even more...

    Solange is my twin sister

  • Munchosgirl

    He was a salesman at Xerox, one of the top salesmen at that time. I wouldn't have actually called him a business man. He stole a group she was already a part of revamped(cut memebers) them, got tips from Ed McMahon and others.

  • NicoleZee

    She is very protective of Bey, after all she beat Jay's ass. Now that's what I call sisterly love. If it were me, I would have f***** him up worse than she did.

  • Tea??

    She loves her sister you can tell they were raised to protect one another but that daddy smh he turned out to be the snake the other girls from destinys child claimed he was years ago.

  • NicoleZee

    I love me some Beyonce' but if Jay is constantly seeing women behind her back like the rumors say, I don't get why she stays with him, she's gorgeous, talented, employed, and doesn't need his money. I don't get why women put up with men that spread their dicks around like Country Crock butter. Just like Melania Trump needs to leave Donald because she seems miserable. If Bey and Melania ever get divorced, they'll both get plenty of child support, and alimony for life!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I was thinking the same thing!!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I love Bey and Solo and I like how they are super different but yet so close. Thats why when haters were coming for Solo I understood it. She protects big sis. My little sister is that way with me. We are only three years apart though and she will be ready to throw hands because she say I let to much stuff with no good people slide. I truly relate to Bey expect shes a virgo and I am a taurus. I think I have more of a voictrious person though.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Well someone said on another blog a long time ago that Matty is not B's father. Had a supposed birth certificate and all.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Matthew is just a Bitter Betty because he's not riding Bey's gravy train any more and he's probably flipping burgers so he can pay his child support.
    I know he's extra salty now that Bey and Camel are officially billionaires.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Do you really think that Bey or Solange care what Messy Matt thinks about either one of them?

    I mean he wasn't thinking about anyone but himself when he raw dogged it with his babies' mamas.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So you got that backward black fam thing going on in your family too?

    I would have fired him too once I found out he stole all that money from me also father or not a thief issa thief.

  • dontgetblocked

    Uhm. Solange was knocked up at sixteen.

  • what?why

    Mathew was one handsome guy. This is all taken out of context - he is proud of Solonge because she wanted to do it her way and she did. Easy

  • Malcom Flex

    Do you think you're schooling ME? She MARRIED before the birth. How interesting you fail to mention what I wrote THEY HAVE A DADDY IN THEIR LIVES.

  • what?why

    he did not teal the money - he was supporting Tina, Solange, Beyonce and himself - remember he quit his lucrative job to manage Beyonce's career. "Stolen" was released to the press from Jay's managers - business but Beyonce didn't have to go along with it.

  • what?why

    Nope - reading is fundamental, gossip is evil.

  • Anunnaki

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Has anyone ever seen Mathew and Larry Graham in the same room? ?

  • NovemberFling

    Solange hasn't been around as long as Pink. Also, Pink is WHITE, like Miley Cyrus -- they can switch music genres and be successful in whatever genre they touch. It is well known that Solange tried her hand at pop music for years and failed. I expressly remember this because I tried to get into her music, but couldn't. I believe her artsy persona is an act and completely different from what she was in 2004/2005 and before -- people put on acts for years. Why is that unfathomable to you?

  • NicoleZee

    Yes! I don't f*** with my brother or my dad. I don't need negative people and bad energy around me. I can't help crazy or mentally ill people. And then I have extended family that I don't f**k with either like my mom's old uncles and aunts. They're phony and do nothing but gossip, who needs that???And I don't get why some idiots think they're better than others, we all have skeletons and EVERYBODY'S shit stinks to high heaven! So I don't get why people think and act like that. We all have to die, it surely won't matter what we have accomplished or not accomplished after we're dead and rotting in the ground. That's why I keep my business to myself. I just try to keep to myself and spread good energy. I just want to raise my son to be a good and kind gentleman. If being alone means having a peace of mind and good health, then I am all for it!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Oh if you say, but I know!!!

  • NicoleZee

    Well Ms. Sandra, children can't bond with parents that are mentally ill or substance abusers, I went through both with my dad. He never really wanted children, why he had them I don't know. I think some people do what is expected of them. Society puts too much pressure on people to be married and procreate to where people get desperate and just marry and have babies with the first convenient idiot that gives them the time of day. I didn't marry first, I had a baby first with a deadbeat broke bum after thinking for years that I was infertile. If I can barely manage to maintain relationships, I don't see the point of even attempting to marry anyone and having more children. I'll end up divorced and destitute like many women.

  • NicoleZee

    But look at "who" his daughters are married to. Jay is a former dope dealer and a notorious womanizer with an alleged side baby or two, and Solange married some old ass dude when she could have just married a man her own age. Sounds like daddy issues to me. I love Beyonce' but I will never understand why she married Jay when she could have any available hot guy in the world that may treat her better. Marriage is not some sort of goldmine like everybody loves to think if you marry a complete and total fool!

  • Ryan

    She looked like she didn't even know where she WAS and Jay staring up at the ceiling like he's hearing voices come at him ? They didn't drive there so no harm no foul!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So since you don't know any better than I do about Solange an Bey's relationship with their dad you start namecalling?

    How mature, not.

  • Gigi

    Do you think maybe Beyonce firing him may have a tiny bit to do with him having a fave?? ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Personally, I think Solange was always his favorite. Children know who the favorite is. Maybe that's why Beyonce was always cold toward him.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    That's strange because even as a fan I ways thought he favored Bey over Solo. I don't know. Lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Both girls have daddy issues. They both sought out older men who are their daddy's age.

  • Malcom Flex

    Sorry ma I'm not riding that train. BW are the least married in the USA period. Go preach to all the never married single mothers you know. I sure as hell do. Marriage=family legacy=inheritance=legacy money for future generations most single mothers don't even have damn life insurance and do FundMe's when they die, pitiful.

  • Dr.Rue

    Beyonce is the Knowles family. Let's be real.
    A seat at the table was great, but that CD and Solange's career was built off of the fact that she's Beyonce sister.

    Talent doesn't equal success in the music industry

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Lmao! I see what you saying because those men are up in age especially Solo husband but I think Mathew did right by them compared to many girls/women fathers. If they have issues it is on them at this point.

  • SG

    I mean really. I'm not a Beyhive member or any crap like that and even I know hat is the truth. Sit down Matthew.

  • Allihave2say

    Considering that Solange is his biological child and Beyonce isn't that would make since. The exception is he was all for Beyonce and Solange didn't have him cutting side deals for her to get ahead in the game. Solange's voice is more organic than Beyonce's but Beyonce has the look and had the body to market.
    Ratty Matty is playing Jedi Mind Tricks because he's mad that Beyonce doesn't give him any information he can sell to the media. I wonder how many school performance Matty has attended for his other children.

  • Allihave2say

    Beyonce has daddy issues because she believed her own storyline about Ratty Matty. She believed he was better than her biological father Giselle.
    Solange has issues because her daddy gave all his attention to his adopted daughter and not his biological daughter. He treats all his biological daughters Kelly, Solange, and the two young kids the same but less better than he treated Beyonce.

  • NicoleZee

    Um, a lot of single mothers do not have the money for additional expenses even if they do have one or two jobs. Children are expensive. Funny how you're blaming the women as if we get ourselves pregnant. Unless someone was raped, it willfully takes two to tango. Men are as much to blame for single mothers so it only seems fair that BOTH take some responsibility. And furthermore, in case you didn't know, YOU CANNOT FORCE A MAN TO DO ANYTHING. I can't force a man to stay and help me raise his child and I can't force him to be a father. The courts can only force men to pay up, but they have no control over whether a man will be in their child's life or the mother's life. And plenty of marriages end where the guy walks out on the woman so I'm not understanding why people always blame women for being single mothers as if they humped themselves! SMDH. We do the most for our children, even in two parent homes today, women still do most of the child rearing. Facts. I also don't get how some people can speak on parenting or single parenting when they have never had children or never dealt with family court. I am a single parent now and I have been in family court for child support so I can say that all of that does take its toll on you. I wouldn't expect anyone to understand except other single parents, lawyers, and judges. I would love for an actual judge to respond to this and you will learn all of the foolishness that occurs in family court. It is ridiculous. Mostly men blaming women all damn day long. Sad. I guess when men are making babies maybe their imaginary friend is controlling their pecker since they can't ever own up to anything!

    .067% of a business and showing up to meetings is not a businessman re: Jay-Z and Beyonce's career has never recovered. I'm not even a Beyonce Stan and I can see that Jay-Z and her team don't know what the hell they're doing. Just like Mariah hiring that shady gypsy.

  • Guess Who

    I don't know why the title, the pictures, the write up and Matty Knowles comments made me CTFU.

  • Guess Who

    Hell I didn't even know that hawk nosed nigga wasn't her dad. She doesn't look ANYTHING like him at all, even before all the plastic surgery. Let me find out Tina was out there being a hoodrat, sucking peen for a bowl of gumbo and a slice of nutria!

    I get what he's saying.. Beyonce has the world praising her and Solange is her little sister. She does things her way regardless and that's a huge accomplishment in this world.. I'm sure he's proud of Beyonce, but imagine being the sister of Beyonce... She's always second, so maybe it's good to hear this, even if it's not the coolest thing to say. Can she get her moment.. I know she loves her sister but there has to be a part of her glad to hear this

  • Tynamight

    You might be right. Perhaps the pressure has always been on Bey to be the "it" girl. Solange was allowed to grow, mature and evolve. Bey was forced due to album sales...

  • Greatgrape37

    He didn't mention it. Sandra Rose said it.

  • kennedy campbell

    that part was not in the quotations

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    “(I’m) a little bit more proud of Solange..." Unless Beyonce knew & was in agreement with this, TACKY. Under ZERO circumstances, do you EVER SAY OUT YOUR MOUTH YOU ARE "MORE" PROUD/HAPPY, ETC WITH ONE CHILD OVER THE OTHER.
    *SORRY ABT THE CAPS*

    i AM NOT YELLING.

    Too much skin bleaching in that family for me to ever take any of them seriously

  • Shira Harding-James

    Ohhhhh lmbo I will have to look it up

  • Shira Harding-James

    It isn't unfathomable to me at all, I just don't agree with you, that's it. And you're right, Solange hasn't been around as long as Pink, two years in between....wow a whole two years, but what does that or the fact that Pink being white has to do with people wanting to be true to themselves and switching up for that reason?

  • YellowSauce

    I'm pretty sure Beyonce is just a little bit more proud of her mothers new husband ..... for holding her mother down ....

    Bad choice of words, I don't think he should have said "more proud"...maybe just "I'm really proud of both my daughters but I give Solange extra credit for her independence to forge her own path when so many people tired to sway her another way"...

  • NaeNae2015

    Applebbotay, I really think he said exactly what he wanted to say. It looks like a little lightweight shade being thrown!

    solange was screwing lil wayne and broke up with her baby daddy for him but he didnt want her even called her a crazy bitch in one of his songs...lol she thought she was going to up stage her sister

  • Real Name

    He stole it, thats what he signed up for no one asked him to do that. He did it because he wanted to. He knew what type of money she would make & since the gravy train was coming to an end he started pocketing a little bit extra to take care of his cheating ways. Especially since the girls sided with Mommie he knew sooner than later he would have his walking papers.

  • Real Name

    Solange seems more out going than Beyonce. Beyonce seems shy when she does interviews, like she's contemplating her every word. Since they called her an air head (the blogs) I think she dont want to come off as an idiot when Solange seems.like she give zero ph ucks.

    When Tina went to work for Xerox where Ratty Matty was an account executive there. I can't remember if Tina was pregnant or if she had already birth Beyonce but Beyonce was already on the table when they hooked up. Beyonce Giselle Knowles is the daughter of Gisel Manier a Frenchman out of Galveston Texas.

    This is why Beyonce has more European/Exotic features than Solange. They favor because Tina has strong genetics but Solange has more Negroid features.

    First, I think he did a good job as a father & provider while the girls were growing up.They were both spoiled, so no difference there. But transitioning into womanhood & having to step back & allow other men in their lives, caused him to escape into wanting to be accepted elsewhere (therefore cheating). Let's face it, his life became spotlighting Beyonce through Destiny's Child. Not saying he had no interest in Solange as a possible talent, but she was younger & maybe he felt he had time to concentrate on her later. Probably after he made sure DC (Beyonce) was noticed by every industry executive.
    I think he loves them both equally, he deserves the credit regardless of his infidelities. Solange somehow managed to see what being "real" is all about & chose that lane. You can't go wrong with that & I think her father recognizes that. It's that Beyonce he got to worry about now, and I believe he been worrying about he this whole time. Because believe it or not he knows EXACTLY how the industry is. Where as Solange has the intellect, Beyonce not so much. Most parents knows these things about their children.
