Beyonce’s mom is just like any other: she cherishes the memories of her children.
That’s why when Tina Lawson saw video of her eldest daughter surface, she had to repost it. The rarely-seen footage shows a seven-year-old Beyonce dancing with the superstar narrating about her childhood and how she got into performing.
“I was really shy and I did not speak much,” Beyonce is heard saying over the video. “I was more comfortable with adults because my mother owned a hair salon, and I stayed in her salon, and I was in grown people’s business all day and I listened to their conversations.
“When I got on stage, my mother put me in dance lessons, and I really loved it,” she continued. “I think when they saw me perform, they were like, ‘Man, she’s in heaven.”
Under the footage, Tina provided her own comment and loved what her daughter was wearing back then. “I love Instagram because I look at clips and I find stuff that I don’t even have myself really cool,” she wrote. “Beyonce is 7 years old on here.check out those shoulder pads.”
I mean, this is some really good stuff. See the video below, originally posted by @yoncesince81.
