Solange Knowles Was Nearly Set To Appear In Austin Powers Film Goldmember Alongside Sister Beyoncé
The latter famously starred as Foxxy Cleopatra in the 2003 comedy film opposite Mike Myers, though a new oral history from Vulture claims that her younger sister was lined-up as a backup singer.
“I put her sister, Solange, in it as Foxxy’s backup singer,” choreographer Marguerite Derricks said. “I remember Beyoncé and I giggling because she was young and everything in Austin Powers was so suggestive." "He’s got the Midas touch, but he touched it too much"—that was a line that we were freaking out about for her sister.”
However, their mother, Tina, was reportedly not pleased with the idea of 15-year-old Solange singing the lyrics.
“What happened, the way I understood it, was when Tina heard the song and realized what that really meant, she felt it wasn’t appropriate for Solange,” said costume designer Deena Appel. “I want to say the costume had already been built, so it was a mad scramble to find somebody to replace her.”
Sybil Azur eventually filled in the role, though Solange was given credit for the film.
Goldmember is the third and, to date, the last Austin Powers film, though Myers hinted back in May that a fourth film could happen.
