Beyonce's Daddy At It Again
After her watching his daughter walk away empty handed from the Golden Globes, Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, launched into one of his now trademark tirades.
Knowles told reporters back stage at the Beverly Hills Hilton right after the Golden Globes show ended that his daughter was outcasted and overlooked by a bureaucratic good old boy system that is still alive in 2007 as it was in 1967.
"Today is MLK's birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go," he said." [Source]
Note to Mr Knowles: Is this not the same Awards ceremony that saw Forest Whitaker, Eddie Murphy, Jennifer Hudson, Prince and the movie Dreamgirls take awards home?
