Solange Knowles Covers Interview Magazine and gets Interviewed by Beyonce

img-solange_103658768061

Coming off the musical eloquence of A Seat At The Table, Solange Knowles graces the cover of Interview Magazine. Bringing things back full circle as she just interviewed her Mother, Tina Lawson and her Father, Mathew Knowles on her highly praised album, Solo thought it was only right to have her big sis Beyonce curate her interview for the popular publication.

img-solange_103632675444

With the article titled In Control, Bey spoke with the “Don’t Touch My Hair” singer about life growing up, music, her favorite producer Missy Elliot and more after just coming from a parent-teacher conference.

BEYONCÉ: Are you exhausted? I know you had a parent-teacher conference …

SOLANGE: Yeah, I actually had to fly to Philly because there were no flights left to New York. And now I’m driving from Philly to New York. Well, I’m not driving, but …

img-solange_103644858298

BEYONCÉ: You have to drive? From Philly?

SOLANGE: Yeah. But it’s not bad. It’s only an hour and 40 minutes.

BEYONCÉ: Oh my God! Rock star. Well, it is a bit strange, because we’re sisters and we talk all the time, to be interviewing you. But I’m so happy to interview you because, clearly, I’m your biggest fan and I’m super proud of you. So we’ll start from the beginning. Growing up, you were always attracted to the most interesting fashion, music, and art. You were obsessed with Alanis Morissette and Minnie Riperton and mixing prints with your clothes … when you were only 10 years old. You would lock yourself in a room with your drum set and a record player and write songs. Do you remember that? Of course you do.

SOLANGE: I do. [both laugh]

BEYONCÉ: What else attracted you growing up?

SOLANGE: I remember having so much perspective about my voice, and how to use my voice, at such a young age—whether it was through dance, poetry, or coming up with different projects. I guess I always felt a yearning to communicate—I had a lot of things to say. And I appreciated y’all’s patience in the house during all of these different phases. They were not ever very introverted, quiet phases.

BEYONCÉ: No, not at all. [both laugh] I remember thinking, “My little sister is going to be something super special,” because you always seemed to know what you wanted. And I’m just curious, where did that come from?

SOLANGE: I have no idea, to be honest! I always knew what I wanted. We damn sure know that I wasn’t always right. [both laugh] But I’d sit firm, whether I was right or wrong. I guess a part of that was being the baby of the family and being adamant that, in a house of five, my voice was being heard. Another part is that I remember being really young and having this voice inside that told me to trust my gut. And my gut has been really, really strong in my life. It’s pretty vocal and it leads me. Sometimes I haven’t listened, and those times didn’t end up very well for me. I think all of our family—you and mom—we’re all very intuitive people. A lot of that comes through our mother, her always following her gut, and I think that spoke to me really loudly at a young age and encouraged me to do the same.

BEYONCÉ: You write your own lyrics, you co-produce your own tracks, you write your own treatments for your videos, you stage all of your performances, all of the choreography … Where does the inspiration come from?

SOLANGE: It varies. For one, I got to have a lot of practice. Growing up in a household with a master class such as yourself definitely didn’t hurt. And, as far back as I can remember, our mother always taught us to be in control of our voice and our bodies and our work, and she showed us that through her example. If she conjured up an idea, there was not one element of that idea that she was not going to have her hand in. She was not going to hand that over to someone. And I think it’s been an interesting thing to navigate, especially watching you do the same in all aspects of your work: Society labels that a control freak, an obsessive woman, or someone who has an inability to trust her team or to empower other people to do the work, which is completely untrue. There’s no way to succeed without having a team and all of the moving parts that help bring it into life. But I do have—and I’m unafraid to say it—a very distinctive, clear vision of how I want to present myself and my body and my voice and my perspective. And who better to really tell that story than yourself? For this record specifically, it really started with wanting to unravel some truths and some untruths. There were things that had been weighing heavy on me for quite some time. And I went into this hole, trying to work through some of these things so that I could be a better me and be a better mom to Julez and be a better wife and a better friend and a better sister. Which is a huge part of why I wanted you to interview me for this piece. Because the album really feels like storytelling for us all and our family and our lineage. And having mom and dad speak on the album, it felt right that, as a family, this closed the chapter of our stories. And my friends’ stories—every day, we’re texting about some of the micro-aggressions we experience, and that voice can be heard on the record, too. The inspiration for this record came from all of our voices as a collective, and wanting to look at it and explore it. I’m so happy I got to take my time in that process. And the end result feels really rewarding.

BEYONCÉ: Well, it brought tears to my eyes to hear both of our parents speak openly about some of their experiences. And what made you choose Master P to speak on the album?

SOLANGE: Well, I find a lot of similarities in Master P and our dad.

BEYONCÉ: Me, too. [laughs]

Kanye West Takes Shots At Beyoncé and Jay Z, Twitter Decides To Throw A #KanyeIsOverParty.

Kanye West might have lost quite a few fans when he insulted Hillary Clinton (he donated to her campaign), and made the announcement that he is pro-Trump even though he didn’t vote.

Kanye may have officially crossed the line last night when he blasted Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z in another bizarre 17-minute-long rant and abruptly ending his show early leaving fans absolutely puzzled and understandably furious.

Kanye revealed in his rant about an incident that took place at the MTV (whom he also called out) VMA’s involving Beyoncé.

West said: “Beyoncé. I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” said Yeezy. “In MY opinion, now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting [sic] who we are just to win. F*ck winning, f*ck looking cool. F*ck looking cool. F*ck being cool. F*ck all that, bruh”.

Oh and he is still waiting on that phone call from Jay Z too, but we don’t think it’s coming anytime soon.

jay-z-sipping-tea-o

There are a few people on this planet you don’t talk about negatively in any way, shape or form those people are Barack and Michelle Obama and Beyoncé.

giphy

Once news of Kanye’s rant hit the web the fallout came as fast as when his over-priced sneakers sell out. In response to his bizarre rant Twitter decided it was time to throw a #KanyeIsOverParty. Beysus fans with a sprinkle of Taylor Swift fans seized the opportunity to slander Pablo with hilarious tweets:

Kevin Garrett Releases “Precious” Visual, Announces The ‘False Hope’ Tour

After his national television debut performance on NBC’s TODAY SHOW, Kevin Garrett releases the new video for his track “Precious.” Written and produced by Kevin, the track is his first release since co-writing and co-producing “Pray You Catch Me” from Beyoncé’s sixth studio album Lemonade.

The black and white visual is directed by long-time collaborator Shervin Lainez and was shot in NYC.

Kevin says:

“I wanted to work with Shervin to make a video that focused on self preservation but still represented the core of the song which is trying to get over a past love. Hence there being minimal shots of the other character that slowly dissipate as the video progresses.”

Check out the FULL black & white video above.
