Solange borrowed fashion inspiration from Stacey McGill of ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ book series for her performance at the 10th Annual FYF Music Festival in Los Angeles on Sunday (August 25).

The 27-year-old carved out time from her busy schedule to chat with Net-A-Porter’s digital magazine The Edit about her latest projects and more.

“I don’t think any part of myself as an artist has ever had a moment of intention execution,” she began. “It’s all just been an evolution. I’ve been able to watch such an incredible performer as my sister close-up. It’s molded me. And now I’m letting my son watch me.”

“I’m having the time of my life. I have one of the best jobs in the world, and to be able to [perform] for an hour a day and make a career out of it, I’m incredibly humbled by it.”

What I wouldn’t pay to wake up one morning and write a post filled with paparazzi pictures of Donnie Simpson leaving a dinner date Katsuya in West Hollywood. Just one! Until that precious moment occurs, here’s another wig crypt bullet point.

Solange, pictured in all her shea butter glory at the 6th Annual Roots Picnic at the Festival Pier in Philly last week, talked balancing music and motherhood in the latest issue of Brooklyn magazine.

On her decision to move to New York: “You know, my parents are here, my sister is here, my cousin is here, all my friends are here. We really wanted Julez to have the experience that we had growing up—being able to drop in on his aunt’s house and being able to hang out with Grandma and see our friends and have that experience of actually having a soccer game and having family show up.”

On her connection to New York City: “I’m still a newcomer here, but I feel like because my family moved to New York when I was 17, that I have a longer and deeper connection. And I think about the times when I would come and visit them, and I would always spend a lot of time in Brooklyn. So it feels like an extension of me, living here, because I spent so much time here before.”
