Kevin Mazur/WireImageNow we know where Beyonce got it from. Her mother, Tina Knowles sizzles in a red dress and gold crown on the cover of the July 2015 issue of Ebony magazine. Inside she speaks about aging gracefully, finding love with her new husband, Richard Lawson, and enjoying “great sex” at 61.
While the publication has yet to release any quotes, her daughter Solange must have snagged an early copy because she shared some excerpts from the article via Instagram while praising her mother’s cover photo.
“Mom Crush Monday. Speaking that real, and looking phenomenal whilst doing so!” Solo wrote, before quoting her mother, who revealed her thoughts on being chosen for the “Sexy Forever” Ebony cover.
Tina recalls, “My first question was, ‘Me Really?’ I had some reservations but as I thought of all the women who tell me daily that I have inspired them to live a wholehearted life, which includes your sexuality.”
She adds, “I am proud to be 61 years old and to not be putting limitations on my lifestyle. We can still be sexy and vibrant, fashionable, classy and fly until the day we die!”
If Tina’s fiery red dress looks familiar, it may because of Beyonce rocked a similar look in her 2010 commercial for her perfume, Heat, which was banned from daytime TV.
