Beyonce and Solange’s mom Tina Knowles-Lawson made headlines recently when it was confirmed she tied the knot with actor Richard Lawson, and now she’s back in the news because she nabbed the recent cover of Ebony Magazine.

Ebony writes:

In an exclusive EBONY interview, the enigmatic bombshell lovingly references her “first family” of entertainment and opens up about her life. The last of seven siblings, each of whom has one of four variations of the same last name Boyance (“The hospital told my mama be happy we even got birth certificates.”) “Tenie B,” her nickname since childhood, shares that she was mistreated by Black nuns in elementary school, took off solo to California at 18, and by 34, with little ones in tow, opened one of the biggest, baddest Black hair salons Houston had ever known. In an hours-long interview, and while snuggled under chenille blankets and gazing out at the spectacular view of Hollywood from her home, Knowles Lawson details the major phases of her life that include mothering a global phenom and her multifaceted fashionista sister. Most important, she says, she’s doing all this while still living her own damn life.
