BEYONCE’S DAD HOLDS GARAGE SALE, SELLING SOME OF HER MEMORABILIA

(KTRK) — Mathew Knowles says anytime his daughter Beyonce is involved, people tend to blow things out of proportion.

“It is absolutely crazy and ridiculous,” said Mathew Knowles, CEO of Music World Entertainment.

Over the weekend, his staff put on a House of Dereon garage sale with about a third of the items related to Beyonce. Since then, Knowles says he’s been bombarded with media accusations that he’s trying to have a “Beyonce sale” because he is trying to make ends meet.

“I get to the office and my assistant of 15 years tells me that this mass hysteria, which I call Jedi-mind trick, is happening,” said Knowles. Referring to the garage sale, Knowles said, “I came up Sunday to help them out. I was nice enough to take photos with people… I see that backfired on me. I see a simple act of kindness ends up being, ‘I’m going out of business, it ends up being I’m broke.'”

Knowles didn’t address his financial situation, but says the reason behind the garage sale is that he’s cleaning house so he can renovate his property, specifically, the Rice Mansion. ABC13 did see contractors and plumbers taking a look around while we were there.

This garage sale had piles of $5 Beyonc shirts, posters and CDs – with even lower-priced Solange memorabilia –but there was also a smattering of old furniture, candles, old country CDs and even a broken Christmas tree.

Kelly Rowland Covers VIBE Magazine’s

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Kelly Rowland is baring all on the front page cover of Vibe Magazine, the photo is screaming “Here I Am!” The beautiful singer released her long awaited third solo album today. Her promotional whirlwind started at NYC’s 105.1 this morning with the crew and she appeared as DJ Denise on last night’s episode of Single Ladies!

Check out a few excerpts from the interview below, the magazine hits stands August 16!

ON BEING MORE APPRECIATED IN EUROPE VS. HOME
VIBE: The last album didn’t do well in the States. It did better overseas, particularly in Europe. Do you feel more appreciated in Europe?
Kelly Rowland: No, not really. People still compare me to B over there. I said in an interview recently, ‘You know, if you guys would be a little bit more intelligent and ask me about myself we’ll have a much better interview.’ You can’t want a story from me and keep asking me about the past.

ON HER COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP WITH MATTHEW KNOWLES
VIBE: When you walked away from that last meeting with Mathew, did you feel an “exhale” moment?
Kelly Rowland: I did, but I also felt like, ‘Oh my God, what have I done?!’ I stayed in the house for two days. I was sad. It was like a funeral. I had to deaden that situation in order to start fresh. That’s a very long time to have the same manager and the same label.

VIBE: What about your personal relationship with Mathew Knowles. Do you still talk to him?
Kelly Rowland: Mathew sent me flowers for my birthday!

VIBE: But do you talk to him?
Kelly Rowland: It’s… I respect him above anything.
