Beyoncé is one of the best entertainers on the planet, but her father, Mathew Knowles, is honest about one talent she could brush up on.

“I would never have Beyoncé up here public speaking,” Knowles, a talent manager, told Howard University students after discussing artists’ limitations. “She’s not good at it. Solange was just at Yale. She’s incredible at it. But I know all of my artists’ weaknesses.
