Tina Knowles and Beyoncé

Video: Beyoncé Surprises on ‘Today’ Show

Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles was a guest on the “Today” show where she spoke about women’s fashion and body image. After models showed off selections from her Miss Tina by Tina Knowles line available at Walmart, Beyoncé strutted out much to the surprise of host Hoda Kotb, who was so shocked that she got out of her chair and threw the note cards.

“She always is my biggest supporter, so I was very excited to do this for her. I love my mom,” said a glowing B, who also shared the best advice she’s received from Mama Knowles. “Beauty fades and you have to be beautiful from within.”

While her mother tried to get Beyoncé to go out more when she was younger, the superstar was always focused on her career. “Now I’m trying to go take a break and I can’t help it, I just have to go into the studio,” she said.
