Tina Knowles Shares the Advice Beyoncé Gave to Daughter for Negative Comments After Performance

Beyoncé is making sure her daughter Blue Ivy Carter knows how to block out online haters.

During a recent episode of Vogue‘s The Run Through podcast, Tina Knowles, the Grammy-winning singer’s mother, chatted about her granddaughter’s performances during Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour, which saw her dancing onstage to “My Power” and “Black Parade.”

Knowles recalled Carter’s performance being “the best” and how “every night her dad and me would get on this platform out there and we would just be screaming our heads off, like, with no shame at all.”

While she was one proud grandmother, alongside millions of supportive fans, Knowles shared that Carter later read some negative comments on social media following her performance. Thankfully, Beyoncé swooped in with some helpful advice.

“One of her friends came back and showed her some negative comments and it was a great life lesson because her mom basically said, ‘Listen, if you let this get you down, then they won. So you should go and work harder. And, you know, just work harder and get your skills together and go out there and blast it,'” Knowles said. “So it actually worked in Blue’s favor because she was only supposed to do it one time. But now her mom was, that mama bear was on to it. It was like, she was like, ‘You go out there and kill it,’ and she did. She just grew so much from that experience.”

The “Texas Hold ‘Em” artist previously revealed in a clip from Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé that she initially didn’t want her 12-year-old daughter to perform in front of her show’s massive audience.

“She told me she was ready to perform, and I told her no,” Beyoncé said in the concert film. However, they eventually negotiated on Carter doing one appearance, which was at the May 26, 2023 show in Paris, but that later changed following her daughter’s first performance.

Carter ended up making appearances for the remainder of the tour, which gave her father, rapper Jay-Z, “goosebumps.” He praised his daughter last year during an interview on CBS Mornings, especially for how she overcame her nerves and the online hate by going on that stage to “reclaim her power.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z also share 6-year-old twins Rumi and Sir Carter.
