It might seem odd that for someone as famous as Beyoncé, when you attempt to inquire about her age, the answer is pretty hard to find.

The correct answer that is.

Despite being one of the biggest stars on the planet, she still faces serious criticism about her age. Rumours have been swirling about for years, and when you take that whole Solange aspect into account then it just becomes a bizarre conversation. 

Her father, Matthew Knowles is the last person we expected to add even more fuel to that fire – but he did.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Matthew said:

"P!nk, she’s the exact same age as Beyoncé. There used to be this battle, which group was better. Usher, he was the same age. They were all 14- or 15-years-old." 

P!nk was born on September 8, 1979 and Usher was born on October 14, 1978 – two and three years before Queen Bey respectively. Knowles' statements, then, implies that Beyoncé might be 36, rather than 34. 

OK, to be fair, sometimes our own parents get mixed up. However, this is not the first time people have been left confused about Bey’s age.

In 2008, Gabrielle Union, of Bring It On fame, said she and Bey have been friends since they were teenagers. However, Gabrielle is nine years older. 

Conspiracy theorists maintain that Bey is actually older, but by a few more years than Matthew believes. In 2013 it emerged that people thought Solange was Bey’s daughter.

Someone who claims to work for the Department of Health in Texas supposedly unearthed her birth certificate and claims it has her birth date as 1974. Which would mean she’s actually closer to 40 than 30. 

There are websites that maintain that Beyoncé got pregnant as a 12 or 13-year old but the family covered it up and said she was Bey’s sister.

Apparently, since Matthew’s interview the Huffington Post requested a comment on the matter from Beyoncé’s publicist. The request was not returned.




Not too long ago we lucky enough to be witness to two thirds of the super-groups that was Destiny’s Child reunite for a very special musical moment.

Minus Bey. Kelly and Michelle got together to serenade Kelly’s 10-month old son, Titan Jewell and it was adorable and sounded incredible too.

Before that Kelly had said that while she was working on new music and hoping to record something soon, it was no longer her first priority as Titan, her first child with Tim Weatherspoon had taken that spot.

However, Matthew Knowles, father of Beyoncé and former manager of the musical trio has recently told the Huffington Post that Kelly’s words shouldn’t make us too upset.

"I am extremely hopeful that the ladies will come back with an album and a tour,” he said, "I'm working on a few Destiny's Child projects right now." 


The ladies haven’t released any new music together since Beyoncé and Kelly featured on Michelle’s 2014 track Say Yes but things could be different in the future seeing as the next projects would be spearheaded by Matthew himself.

He added: “My second book will be the autobiography of Destiny's Child. I'm talking to the film and TV community right now, regarding a Destiny's Child movie or TV series of some sort.”

Bey’s dad and music mogul also made the prediction that “within the next two or three years we’ll see something major from it.”
