Solange Knowles gets a spread in the latest issue of Lurve Magazine, where she talked about being a fashionista, her natural hair and ending a good friendship.
“Look at my fashion choices back in the day. You know how people say ‘Who let her walk out the house that way?’ or ‘She needs more people!’”
“Once I really defined my expectations in terms of how to navigate through the fashion world without getting myself too invested, I’ve had a hell of a lot of fun.”
“I’m actually really trying to navigate my feelings on the entire hair issue and it’s tough doing that publicly.”
“I really, truly was not even aware that there was a natural hair system in place to measure the texture of your hair. At that point I thought to myself, ‘This is really crazy. That these people know more about my hair than the human that even carries it!’ I went to my Twitter and sort of impulsively expressed that. I don’t regret it one bit, but sometimes trying to put how you feel in an one-hundred forty character structure is not really successful.”
On ending her relationship with Carol’s daughter,
“I was constantly fighting for the right message to be heard. The message that the way we wear our hair is a personal choice, there’s no right or wrong way.”
The track is written by Solange and Dev Hynes, and produced by Blood Orange. The record will be released digitally on October 2 by Terrible Records.
