Mathew Knowles CALLS UP Houston Radio Station ...

Beyonce's dad on radio: Houston needs to show support



Houston loves the Knowles family.
Or, at the very least the city should be supportive, according to Mathew Knowles.
Papa Knowles called KRBE (104.1 FM) radio's Roula & Ryan Show
today to call out on-air personality Special K for referring to
daughter Solange as a diva and a ``B.''
This crazy spat started when Solange heard Las Vegas anchors talking
off the air before she appeared on their morning show Aug. 27. The
anchors evidently said something about quizzing Solange about the
closing of the 40/40 Club in Las Vegas, which is owned by Jay-Z, who
is married to Solange's more famous sister Beyoncé.
When Solange came on-air after the usual innocuous, bouncy intro to plug her new album, Sol-Angel & the Hadley St. Dreams, she said: "I have to say that was not a very professional introduction before. Please don't tie me into family.''
Solange looked pissed. The anchorwoman looked confused. The audience was clueless.
The clip of the dopey exchange became a YouTube favorite.
Solange' own "setting the record straight'' video made it to
YouTube. Standing on a stage, Solange says she felt very disrespected
and offended. She also said she is disappointed in the level for
journalism right now, excited by the Democratic convention and to buy
her new album. You can also find a "leave Solange alone'' video on the
site, made by a funny guy with a foul mouth.
The KRBE morning-show crew was among the thousands who saw the TV video clip and added their comments.
Special K's irreverent remarks about Solange's diva attitude got
back to Papa Knowles, who called the show. Knowles told Special K that
for someone living in Houston, ``You are talking a lot of smack, sir.''

The DJs giggled.
Knowles said it's not just about defending his family, he said he
would have called up about any of his recording artists. ``You guys
think it's a dad thing, but for me it's also a manager and respect
thing in the industry,'' Knowles told the radio audience.
``I think that for what my family does for the city of Houston I
expect one city to be very supportive of my family because we give and
we give and we give to the city of Houston.''

He's right. The Knowles family has done alot for Houston and you'd expect the city to stand behind Solange and support her. Matthew did the right thing here.

I heard the interview. I loved the way how he was firm, yet calm. I am glad he called out all the haters. The DJ said Solange was like riding off her sister's success...Matthew was like.."Have you ever heard the song Upgrade U? Get me bodied? Flaws and All? Solange wrote those? She wrote more than half of Kelly's first album. Solange probable makes more money than Beyonce on writing ALONE. She has a condo in Houston and in LA..." he was just feedin git to them...I was LMAO! I was like get em Daddy Knowles! I swear people think Solange just sits around and not do anything all day...she's always been making her own money
