Celebrity mom and fashion designer Tina Knowles-Lawson is opening up on the origin of her superstar daughter Beyoncé’s name.

Speaking on the first podcast episode of In My Head with Heather Thomson on Tuesday (Sept. 15), the Knowles-Lawson shared that “Beyoncé” is actually her maiden name, after the news broke earlier this year about French surname thanks to a google cameo.

According to People, the businesswoman said that a few other of her family members also share the “Beyoncé” surname but later gave a profound story on the legacy of the widely recognized name. She also said that due to a clerical error other members of the family including her brother and his children now have  “Beyincé” as their last name.

“I think me and my brother Skip were the only two that had B-E-Y-O-N-C-E,” she said, before explaining why some family members spell the name differently.

“It’s interesting — and it shows you the times — because we asked my mother when I was grown. I was like, ‘Why is my brother’s name spelled B-E-Y-I-N-C-E? You know, it’s all these different spellings,’ ” Knowles-Lawson said. “And my mom’s reply to me was like, ‘That’s what they put on your birth certificate.’ “

The House of Deréon founder explained that her mother argued to clear up the misspellings of her children’s last name the first time but decided not to bring it up again as she continued to have more children. 

“So I said, ‘Well, why didn’t you argue and make them correct it?’ ” Knowles-Lawson continued. “And she said, ‘I did one time. The first time, and I was told be happy that you’re getting a birth certificate because, at one time, Black people didn’t get birth certificates.”

‘The Boys’ Spinoff Series in Development After Reportedly Massive Season 2 Ratings

Published

The Boys are heading off to school. The hit Prime Video superhero series is officially getting its own college-themed spinoff, Deadline reports. The upcoming project, which comes from The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, was launched into development after the successful Season 2 premiere of the original series, which debuted Sept. 4 as the most-watched global launch of an Amazon Original series ever.

The upcoming series is set to take place at the only college in the nation made for only for young superheroes, which also happens to be run by Vought International. The untitled The Boys spinoff is described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys.”

Rosenberg will write the pilot and will act as the showrunner and executive producer on the spinoff, which comes from Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film. The Boys creator Eric Kripke and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will also join the upcoming project.

The Boys, an adaptation of the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, first premiered on Prime Video in 2019. The second-season returned earlier this month with a three-episode debut and new installments following each week. Season 2 picks up with The Boys in hiding and The Supes on the lookout for them. While Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are laying low, Butcher (Karl Urban)  has gone off on his own and is nowhere to be found. The Seven is dealing with its own problems, and the addition of a new supe, Stormfront (Aya Cash), doesn’t help.

Season 2 marked an even bigger debut for the series, pulling in almost double the audience of Season 1 in just its first two weeks and continuing to bring in millions of new viewers with every weekly episode. After a successful run on Prime Video this fall, The Boys Season 2 is coming to an end with the season finale on Oct. 9.

We talk a lot on the ReelBlend podcast about our favorite interview opportunities, and junket experiences that have changed our lives. We rarely lament the junkets we missed out on, or the filmmakers we’ll never get a chance to talk cinema with. The late Stanley Kubrick falls into that category. Imagine getting to chop up film with the mastermind behind Dr. Strangelove, The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Full Metal Jacket?

“I’m half-Hopi and half-Mexican, so we pulled a lot from my personal experience to implement that in our storytelling,” Taboo told Marvel Host Ryan Penagos. “The cool thing about this story is that although there’s a Native perspective to it, it’s not a Native story. This kid is dealing with becoming a werewolf and it’s inclusive to everyone and there’s bits and pieces for everyone to take away their own personal motivation.”

“[Scot Eaton] sees the vision, and Scot just applies it and takes it to the next level,” Taboo added when asked about his collaborator, superstar artist Scot Eaton.

Don’t miss the epic introduction of the new Werewolf by Night and the surprising mythology behind his history when the series kicks off next month! In the meantime, check out never before seen artwork from the captivating first issue in this exclusive video interview with Taboo and Ben Jackendoff!
