"We laughed about this recently because I was saying, 'Girl, you get really mean back there,' and I am really happy that I don't have to be back there anymore," said Tina, 69. "We'd laugh because she used to do 'Flaws and All.' She would say, 'I'm a [bitch] in the morning,' and I’ll be like, 'and the evening too!'"

She added that Beyoncé will often apologize for remarks she made during an intense quick-change. "She’ll be like, ‘Mama, I’m so sorry,’ and I’m like, ‘I know.’ Sometimes she’ll be crying, and I was like, ‘She crying because she know she just said some crazy stuff to us,’" recalled the businesswoman.

"But that’s the heat of the moment, because you’re trying to get your shoes on, and everybody’s waiting, and if somebody’s messing up or they lose the shoes, then you messed up the whole show," continued Tina. "So, I understand it."

Fashion is an incredibly important part of Beyoncé's artistry, especially on the recently wrapped Renaissance World Tour. Fans dressed in extravagant outfits — usually featuring cowboy hats and chrome — every night, leaving Tina impressed.

Having been involved in Beyoncé's fashion since she was a little girl, Tina told host Sherri Shepherd they hired four stylists for the tour. "We had over 600 costumes to choose from," she said. "She still has maybe 150 costumes that she hasn’t worn, but every night she did at least four to five new costumes."

Tina was excited to see fans pick up on the show's visual themes for their own looks so quickly. "I look out in the audience — I’ve been to probably 40 of the 50, 60 shows, and every night I see the most amazing costumes," she said. "And these costumes cost a fortune. I’m like, ‘I should’ve hired them. How are they doing this?’ The creativity is just off the charts. It’s unbelievable."
