Beyonce's Daddy Insists It Was A "Strategic" Decision To Quit Being Her Manager

Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonce

For anyone else, we'd be skeptical, but for Matthew Knowles…alright, we're still kind of skeptical. But hear him out.

As it stands, Beyonce's father, who had been his daughter's manager since she was kid, is no longer handling her affairs. There were rumors that things went south between Matt and Bey, but in a recent interview, Matthew cleared up the rumors. He explained:

"The transition started way before the official announcement. If you’re strategic, which we are, you don’t make a decision like that before you start dialogue. That dialogue started nine months ago…At the end of the day, I’m Beyonce’s father first and her manager second. Remember, this is 20 years I’ve been doing this. She’s almost 30 years old, and if she says, ‘I want to run my business,’ I think she’s smart enough that she will get the right team."

See! He's letting the little birdie leave the nest! She's a big, mega-superstar who can handle her own business from now on. She doesn't ned him anymore!

Or, that's just what her new manager told him to say! Who knows!

Beyonce Teams Up With London Producer Dave "Switch" Taylor For New Album

beyonce teams up with london producer for new album

Out with the old, in with the new!

Earlier this week, Beyonce parted ways with her manager father, Mathew Knowles, after long time reports of a strained professional relationship.

Now, Beyonce is teaming up with producer Dave Taylor, aka Switch (his DJ name), to re-invent her sound for her upcoming fourth album.

Taylor/Switch is renowned for remixing Lily Allen and Fatboy Slim, as well as making beats for Xtina, M.I.A., and Santogold.

Here's what Beyonce had to say about the new album:

"I'm not in a box. The new record is not R&B, not typically pop, not rock. It's just everything I love mixed together."

We're intrigued. We'll look forward to hearing your new sound, Beyonce! Good luck!

Beyonce's Parents Call Off Their Divorce!

Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineBeyonce

Just like Brit-Brit's parents! Hooray!

It seems that Beyonce's parents, Mathew Knowles and Tina Knowles, are no longer getting divorced, as neither of them saw it fit to attend their court hearing yesterday to make it official. A judge in Harris County, Texas ultimately dismissed the case and moved on.

Now, we're not really sure if the reconciled or not, but it takes a rather conscious decision to avoid going to trial, so something is going on between these two.

We have high hopes for them!

Things are looking up for 'rents in La La Land!

Courteney? David? Anything you two want to say to each other now that karma is on a winning streak?

Beyonce's Record Label Wants Dad To "Step Aside"

Filed under: Baby BlabberBeyonce

Poor Beyonce.

She's still giving her dad, Matthew Knowles, the silent treatment after finding out he fathered a love child while still married to her mother, Tina Knowles.

And now her record label is in a tizzy, trying to figure out how to handle the situation since her dad still manages her career.

A music industry insider says that executives at Columbia are worried because their relationship has reached such a low point, adding:

"Beyonce was horrified to find out her dad cheated on her mom. She always looked up to him, and she is very close to her mom, so this has hit her really hard. She is refusing to speak to him, which is making things difficult where it comes to managing her career. Some people at Columbia now think it would be better to move him aside."

Knowles had an 18-month affair with actress Alexsandra Wright and fathered a boy, Nixon, who was born just four months ago. After a paternity test proved the baby was his, a judge ordered him to pay $8,200 a month in child support.

We hope she can patch things up with her dad, but maybe it IS time to change things up, career-wise??
