Who says you can't be sexy and snatched at 61?
Mrs. Lawson is serving, hunny!
Caution: curves ahead!
This definitely ain't the wedding photos. The newly married and forever slaying, Tina Knowles-Lawson, ditched the all white and is quite the lady in red on the cover of the latest Ebony magazine. In her photo spread, Tina serves up the ultimate red light special while rocking a ruby, satin dress that just screams "I'm feeling myself," as the goddess-inspired gown falls perfectly on Tina's Texas-grown curves. Hot mama!
On the cover, a brief, yet bold, excerpt gives us a sizzling snippet of what we can expect from Tina's interview with Ebony:
"The unadulterated truth about Beyonce and Solange, their "real" family dynamic, surviving a painful divorce, falling in love again and having "great sex" at 61."
Meanwhile, inside the issue, the second time wife, mama and grandmama of two, opens up about her reluctance to show off her sexy side in the spread, but later tells us why she ditched her doubts and embraced her ageless shape:
"I had some reservations [about the shoot], but as I thought of all the women who tell me daily that I have inspired them to live a wholehearted life, which includes your sexuality. I am proud to be 61 years old and to not be putting limitations on my lifestyle. We can still be sexy and vibrant, fashionable, classy and fly until the day we die!
Muva! Stella who? Tina is getting her groove back and we are all types of here for it!
In the issue, Tina also discusses her upbringing, and how she ended up opening one of the biggest salons in Houston, after birthing two superstars in the making:
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.
And you know daughter Solo (Solange) had to give all praise to the woman who raised her!
Meanwhile, if you are wondering why Tina's pics look so familiar, they may or may not remind you of Beyonce's 2010 commercial for her perfume 'Heat.' The commercial was so hot, that is was banned from daytime TV:
Like mother, like daughter. Clearly, we all know who gets it from their mama. Serve!
