Before I get started I just want to say that I’ve been wanting to use this raw emotion filled picture of Solange for a while. Now that the opportunity has presented itself I couldn’t help but jump at it. Oh, and because I care deeply for Kid Creole of course.
Solange was rushed to the emergency room yesterday after fainting at an airport on her way home from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The culprit? Nyquil.
“Woke up to 8 random people over me, laid out on the floor in baggage claim!” Knowles posted on her Twitter page early this morning. “Guess I passed out! Scary. Hooked up to IV now. Apparently I’m super dehydrated.”Knowles started to feel loopy when she tried to get some sleep by downing cough medicine. “I took a nyquil and i think maybe im getting high off it because im not sleeping,” she wrote, adding later, “everythings movvvvviinnngg slooooowww, lol.”
She was released from the hospital after a second round of IV and a visit from her mother, Tina. “My mom is the best. LOL,” Knowles wrote. “She’s like, ain’t nothing wrong with this girl, she need some water and rest…Pull up the car! LOL.”
Mama Tina keeps things in line, baby! There are wigs to be made! Being dehydrated and having low blood pressure its no excuse for missing unnecessary days from the wig crypt. Still, let Solo tell it she is a modern Etta James for surviving this shit.
Kanye West and model Amber Rose have been making headlines lately as people try to speculate their relationship with one another. I say let the kids have fun! I could see her image [if you wish to call it that] getting a boost from being linked to ‘Ye but if he is willing to give the chick and couple of extra Google hits then whatever.
The only titties I like to keep up with are usually that of to Rick Ross but I couldn’t help but notice that the junior keeper of the wig crypt had a Tara Reid moment while posing for pictures at the Toni Maticevski fashion show on Monday night. She should re-think wearing her pouch of creole spices another way or invest in double sided tape. Girl, you so bad ass!
Solange grabbed her glowsticks freakum dress and hit the stage during the 6th Annual Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards.
If you are ever walking down the street with Solange and raindrops begin to fall don’t expect for her to share her umbrella. The only reason why this broad was able to get her fingers on it was because Baby Creole didn’t want to superman that hoe in front of the paparazzi. When you attend the Papa Joe 2.0 Flashing Lights Institute you learn how to set aside your inner dirty rice rage and fake it. Trust and believe that if circumstances were different ol’ girl would have been sitting in a puddle.
Cause her mama taught her better than that.
I rock with Cousin Angie B! and her always present red lipstick but I can’t help but notice that the long hours she is pulling inside of the wig crypt are beginning to show like Tina’s gray roots. The life and times of a wig carrier, damn shame. She’s been there to help Beyonce fill out bank desposit slips and to hand Solange her glowsticks, now she is hanging out with Michelle at basketball games?
Luckily for her she will probably be recognized at Oprah Tyra’s Legend Ball for being an outstanding assistant. Whenever that happens.
With the Grammy Awards only a couple of days away, Los Angeles is the destination for glowstick carriers. But none of them can quite match the levels of different-ness that Solange has trapped in her body. She did a Coldplay cover, ya’ll. Add Janelle Monae to the mix and you’ve got some serious talent on your hands.
Too bad they will both be relegated to their respective dungeons of doom for an eternity: Solo in the wig crypt and Ms. Monae in Diddy’s tooth pick crypt.
Etta James must have received that root box I was talking about yesterday. She tells the New York Daily News that she meant no harm when she ripped Spicy Creole a new one at a show in Seattle last week.
“I didn’t really mean anything,” James said. “Even as a little child, I’ve always had that comedian kind of attitude. …That’s probably what went into it.”
Still, James acknowledged being miffed that she wasn’t invited to perform her signature song for Obama’s first dance with his wife on inauguration night.
James was “feeling left out of something that was basically mine, that I had done every time you look around,” she said.
And while she said she liked Beyonce’s performance, when asked if she thought she could have done better, James answered, “I think so. That’s a shame to say that.”
The legendary singer also says that jokes were “not from a mean place.” As for Obama, James said she “always thought he was handsome and he was cool.”
“I still had my joke about him,” she said. “That might be horrible. The president might not ever like me in life.”
