In Their Own Words

Celebrities usually crave privacy above all else, but even the biggest stars sometimes need to get things off their chests. Rather than writing in their diaries, many have taken to penning open letters to fans, haters, fellow celebs or even family.

Most recently, newlywed Tina Knowles-Lawson penned a heartfelt mother's day piece for TIME magazine to the ladies in her life: Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly Rowland and Angie Beyince. Titled "You Have Been Such a Blessing to Me," Mama Tina spoke on how much she loves and appreciates them each individually. We need some tissues!
