Solange Knowles is known for her eccentric style, quick wits, singing voice and of course, for being the little sister to megastar Beyonce.
In her latest interview with Lurve Magazine, Solange got more sensual than ever, and opened up about everything from her personal style to the natural hair critics.
After reading a blog that went deep in the details of her natural hair, Solange went on a Twitter “rant” to defend her hair selection and proclaim that she is in no way the president of the natural hair committee.
In the corresponding article, she speaks about her stance on hair and also reveals that she is no longer working with Carol’s Daughter.
Check out some excerpts from the interview below:
On growing up with less boundaries than Beyonce:
I think your parents set so much structure in the first child because it’s so new and fresh, and you are trying to do everything right, and by the second one you’re like, ‘Eh, they’ll be okay.”
In one way, I think that my parents’ leniency really allowed me the freedom and experiences to be a very independent thinker. In a lot of ways, I had the freedom to really explore the world. They trusted me and I really tried to hold value in that. That is, until I got pregnant. [laughs]
On the time she vented on Twitter after reading an article about her hair:
I made some comments on Twitter recently about an article someone sent me that a young writer wrote about how much energy we are putting into other people’s natural hair. I thought it was really interesting, and in a lot of ways true. That is until I came across the part of the article that mentioned how certain commenters were debating on the texture of my hair in its natural state.
I really, truly was not even aware that there was a natural hair system in place to measure the texture of your hair. At that point I thought to myself, “This is really kind of crazy…that these people know more about my hair than the human that even carries it!” I went to my Twitter and sort of impulsively expressed that. I don’t regret it one bit but sometimes trying to put how you feel in an one-hundred forty character structure is not very successful. It sometimes comes off as ranty and aggressive, and that was not my stance at all.
