Mathew Knowles Calls Beyoncé & Chloe Bailey Comparisons “Insulting”

Chloe and Halle recently took control of their Instagram account. In 2016 they released an EP, Sugar Symphony, and in 2017 a mixtape, The Two Of Us. In response to Leah’s question about fans comparing the two, he said, “Are you telling me someone’s an idiot enough to compare her to Beyoncé talent-wise?” He even went on to say. Beyonce‘s dad Matthew Knowles, appeared on Leah Henry’s Instagram show “Lemonade Stand” on Wednesday night, and he had a few things to say about people comparing his daughter to young singer Chloe Bailey. As the lead singer of the now-defunct Destiny Child, Knowles also landed major roles in movies such as Austin Powers. Since then, they have been serving up thirst traps and conquering challenges, much like Chloe did with the popular #BussItChallenge. Mathew Knowles says its “insulting” when people compare Beyoncé and Chloe Bailey. They have both shown that they are performers in their own right, something Beyonce’s fans have praised their leader for over the years. View this post on Instagram

Some persons commenting during the Live Instagram show stated that Matthew came off as being arrogant. Similarly, Beyonce started performing at a very tender age. They caught the ears of Beyoncé, who later became their mentor and also signed them to her Parkwood Entertainment label. Other individuals commented that Chloe had a resemblance to Beyoncé and others accused him of throwing shade at the young singer.
