Method Man apologizes to Destiny’s Child 21 years later

Rapper Method Man takes responsibility and apologizes more than two decades after a tense encounter with the pop trio on Destiny’s Child.

Speaking on Sunday’s episode of rapper Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, the Wu Tang Clan member said the incident reflected a difficult time in his life.

In 1999, he had a “warm” encounter with Destiny’s Child when the group had four members. Two years later, he was excited to see his new reincarnation with Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as they all gathered for Janet Jackson’s 2001 “MTV Icon” special.

“I see the girls, and so, you know, I kind of got up from my seat to go and tell them what’s going on. Now I’m still in my low self-esteem era,” Method Man said. “I walk over to say hello to them and when I said hello they didn’t even turn to acknowledge me. Now my a— in my head with my low self esteem is like ‘Oh, she s— on me.’ They didn’t even hear me, it was so loud inside [there]. And that’s the apology I’m offering right now.”

After the initial misunderstanding, a mutual friend of the artists brought them back together, but Method Man refused to be friendly after the perceived slight.

“You have your Hands out to shake, and I held my hand here and said, ‘Keep up the Hollywood S—.’ To this day, my heart breaks because neither Kelly, Beyoncé, nor Michelle ever did anything to me. You know?” said the 51-year-old rapper.

“But being so unhappy, I felt at that damn moment that they weren’t treating me the way I should have been treated. Who am I to think that about these girls? They’re here to promote themselves and break records and things like that.”

He concluded with a direct apology.

“And to this day I don’t think I ever apologized for that,” he said. “I apologize to Beyoncé. My apologies to Kelly Rowland and Michelle. You all don’t deserve this. At all.”

Earlier in the interview, Method Man noted that he was addicted to ecstasy pills in the late ’90s and early 2000s and was also plagued by anxiety and depression.

“I’m not like myself, so I didn’t like any other body,” Method Man said. “So that meant that anything that would have come within my perimeter at that point was going to get it. My family has been through a lot with my a— in that time, man. And I can admit that I took out a lot of my misery on them, and they didn’t deserve it. And I took some of my misery out on people at Def Jam who didn’t deserve it.”

Method Man’s apology to Destiny’s Child caught the attention of Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, who praised the rapper in an Instagram post.

“Thanks Methodman. It takes a real man to tell this story!” she wrote. “Such a great example for other young men❤️. . Don’t assume someone is dissing you! @methodmanofficial.”
