This week, Solange took to her Twitter account to clap back at Natural Hair Nazi combat troops after reading comments criticizing how she maintains her locks on her Instagram and peeping this blog post dedicated to why people should keep their natural hair opinions to themselves:
“Im only going to say a few things. I cut my hair ALL off 4 times in my life all for very different reasons….I only reiterate this because this is nothing new for me. This 4th time did not define me, just as it had not the previous 3 times. I’ve never painted myself as a team natural vice president. I don’t know the lingo and I don’t sleep with a satin cap…However, I did noticed when I picked out my hair, I kept seeing feedback about needing a ‘twist out’.”
It was a night out with the in-laws for Jay-Z as he attended the D’Usse Cognac launch party at New York City’s Standard Hotel on Wednesday. Weigh in on his look as well as Memaw Muffaletta and Solange in the comments. Continue reading
No Pancake 31 over here! On Thursday night (April 26), Solange stepped out for the 6th annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer gala at Cipriani Wall Street in a futuristic yet sleek Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 Couture gown plucked straight off the runway and minimal makeup. The new auntie opted to keep the sculpted jersey dress the center of attention, wearing only a gold cuff. Peep her shoe game after the jump.

Beauty Beat: The Nude Lip
Serving tribal tease Solange stepped out Monday (April 16) at the 2012 Tribeca Ball at the New York Academy of Art on. How would you rate her look? Watch the heir to the yaki dynasty, 7-year-old Juelz, get loaded down with LeBron James memorabilia post Heat victory below.
Erykah Badu turned the other cheek while posing for photographs at the Hennessy White Rabbit launch inside the Highline Stages on Thursday night (April 5) in New York City.
Before taking the stage to close out the evening with a jamming set of her own, Lowdown Loretta Brown introduced Timbaland who later reunited with friend and frequent collaborator Missy Elliott. Watch the creative duo debut a brand spankin’ new song and check out more flicks from the below.
Solange 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.
