Cover To Cover: Solange Featured In Complex Magazine

solange1 1 Cover To Cover: Solange Featured In Complex MagazineSolange took a break from previewing her hipster-friendly infinite playlist for niece Blue Ivy’s approval (it’s going to be a hot summer) for a game of “Would You Rather” with Complex magazine. I need photos of Studio 54 Memaw Muffaletta on my Tumblr dashboard ASAP!

I’d rather be submissive than dominant. Strong, independent women share this sentiment of wanting to be taken over sexually behind closed doors. It’s the natural balance for a woman like me.

I’d rather be the cool aunt than the authoritative aunt. The closer my sister came to motherhood, the more stern she was with my son, Julez, but when he was between the ages of 1 and 4, she put the s in spoiling. I had to deal with the cool aunt for seven years, and I’m ready for payback! Late nights, candy binges—I’m doing it all!

I’d rather have known my parents when they were younger than only know them as my parents. My mother was the most stylish, flawless woman I’ve ever seen. My father had a little cool, but my mother was a different breed of cool. I’ve looked through photographs of her that inspire me today. She’s partied at Studio 54, hung out in ski chalets in Colorado, and played Cleopatra in a play in Egypt. She’s insanely cool in her 50s, but I wouldn’t pass up being with her in her prime!

Mama Fresh went to a Chaka Khan concert back in the day. I’ll take my cool points in large denominations, please.

    I’d rather she wipe the sand out her cooch, sit her ass down and stop trying so hard to win the “I’m so eclectic” award to make up for being the ugly sister.

    I’m going to need for these people to occupy an entire row of seats. Apparently Beyoncé not only faked the pregnancy, but is using a doll because…you know…she couldn’t (had she not had a child) just adopt a real baby.
    People irk me.

      Chile im so tired of people talking about this. If she wanna fake somebody out..who is she hurting..and who cares?

    I’m not sure whose interviews are more boring.. Solange or Beyonce.. ?
    Solange wants to be hood so bad but fails at it every time. and what exactly is she modeling? designer clothing from Tumblr? she looks the same all the time.. just make some music and shut up.

    I’d rather you just go the hell away.

    I’d rather she have several seats. Something about her rubs me the wrong way. She annoys the shit out of me.

    Girl, can you just go do a follow-up to Hadley St. and stop jumping up and posing every time you hear a shuttle click.*sucks teeth*

    • A Land

      YAAAAAASSSSSSSSSS!!!  I thought I was the only one who was feeling that album. 

      • Kimmy Kimmy

        You are not alone!  I loved that album as well.

    • Francis Jones

      That should be “shutter”, not “shuttle”. *rolls eyes*

      Good luck catching Chaka on a night when she isn’t too high to remember the words to songs she’s been singing for over 30 years. I’ve washed my hands of this chick. I won’t even bother going to see her for free again.
