After opening the BET Awards in iconic fashion on Sunday night, Beyoncé had to dip to London to prep for her international Formation tour. Tina Lawson said as much on stage while accepting her daughter’s award for Video of the Year, but not everyone believed her.
Beyoncé’s departure sparked the usual jokes. And it appears some people also dared to question Tina’s facts when the only fact is that Miss Tina reads everything. The woman with the best Instagram page in the world wrote a caption that’s over 400 words explaining why everyone needs to chill out about why Beyoncé didn’t stay for the entire awards show. “Hello guys first let me say I just got a wind of the mess that has festered since last night,” Tina writes. “The fact that I supposedly lied about my Daughters concert.”
Our mom further clarifies that she got the city and date mixed up and says a staff member told her Beyoncé “had to get back in time for her concert and that she actually should have been there 2 days before.” Miss Tina, who doesn’t need to explain herself at all but must Stan for her daughter’s work ethic, goes on:
I want to point out that there is a nine hour time difference and it is an eleven to 12 hour Flight that equates to 19 - 20 hrs to get there! I then want to ask what would be the point of lying to the public and knowing that anyone could see when the date was. Any one with good sence could see that ! I am hurt and disappointed because I know what kind of work, sacrifice , and personal Money it took for her to do this show and support the Bet Award show and to give her fans that did not get to attend the concert a piece of her show. (Even though it means she has one day to rehearse herself and dancers after being off for a month) That was really important to to her.
Tina adds, “I know I owe no explanation to anyone but I am tired of people writing my story. So I chose to tell my own!” That is not the end.
In a follow-up post, she continues: “This is exactly what I was talking about. We start lies and false rumors about our entertainers we celebrate when they stumble, we hope that they fall. We put them against each other when it’s room for them all! We talk negative about them and even their children which should be off limits.”
Mama Tina ends the two-part post with a classy adieu: “As Micheal Jackson would say ‘with Love’. Wake up people ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💜💜💜God Bless all of you ❤️”
Wake up, Sheeple, and do not do this ever again.
