Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, member of former girl group TLC, had some rough things to say about Destiny’s Child and the Matthew Knowles manager situation. She spoke to BlackVoices.com recently when they asked her about what she thinks about Kelly firing Matthew Knowles. I’ve got a few parts of the interview here.
She says, “They get mad when I say this, but I don’t give a damn. It was all about Beyonce anyway. She was my favorite, too, but come on. Her parents are over everything. Who do you think they were going for? It’s always Beyonce. It was supposed to be exactly the way it is now, Bey is on top.”
“I love Beyonce, and I am a fan of hers. She was my favorite in the group even before they were Destiny’s Child and they were the Baby Dolls. She was so cute and pretty. I like all of them, and I wish Kelly the best.”
“That would have been a hard group for me to be in, because I would have been like your mommy and daddy are running things and they’re gonna have you at heart the most. That’s just how I feel.”

Sheesh. Sadly, I agree. I would not have wanted to be a member of Destiny’s Child just because I know that if I had disagreed with Beyoncé and her parents, I would have been completely ignored and overthrown.
