Since Beyoncé dropped Lemonade, one of the biggest speculations about the visual album has been whether or not there's truth to the songs' claims about infidelity and her relationship with Jay Z. Now, the singer's mom Tina Knowles has given some insight.
"It could be about anyone's marriage," she tells ABC13, "I think that everybody at one time or another has been betrayed and lied to and it's about the pain–and it's about the healing process–and it's about how do you get past that and move on."
Tina emphasizes it's not about pointing fingers at who did what, "People make it all about the cheating and betrayal and, yes that's a part of it because that is something you have to heal from," she says, "If you really listen to the poetry it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people."
It's an inconclusive answer, but a reminder to focus on the greater impact of Lemonade–and perhaps Tina's subtle call to stop talking about "Becky," already.
