I’m so glad we live in a world where there is not just one Knowles sister, but two, and that we are free to love both of them equally. A few months ago, I went to see Solange — that’s Beyonce’s little sis, for those of you who do not keep up with the spawn of Tina and Matthew — perform and was struck by how different these two are. Solange is a lot more understated in her singing, in her style and in her dance moves. But oh, how the crowd loves it when Basement Baby gets her groove on! While Beyonce turns out all sorts of tricks at her immense live show, all Solange has to do to get her fans screaming is snap her fingers, roll her shoulders and shimmy her hips. Click through to check out Solange’s killer moves on stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend.
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

There are some crazy rumors popping up that Beyonce Knowles is actually a mother to Solange and NOT her sister! WTF, right?!?
Could you even imagine that? Firstly, let’s look at the facts, shall we? According to Wikipedia, Beyonce was born on September 4, 1981. Wikipedia also reports that Solange was born on June 24, 1986. So, for Bey to technically be Solange’s mother, she would’ve had to have had her when she was a mere five-years-old. Interesting. Read more …
It was a family affair at last night’s premiere of Beyonce’s HBO documentary “Life Is But A Dream,” with both Knowles ladies walking the red carpet in daringly different looks. On one side, we have the star of the show, Beyonce, rocking a gorgeous, glamorous and glittering gown (try to say that 10 times fast). On the other side, we have her edgy lil’ sis, Solange, not wearing pants. I happen to think she looks amazing. Maybe there are shorts under there? I can’t tell. Whatever. When you’re Beyonce’s sister, you can wear whatever you want to her party. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
Beyonce is one tough act to follow, but it’s hardly a secret that Solange is the more style-savvy Knowles ― all those years spent concealed in the basement must have allowed Bey’s younger sis to amass quite the wardrobe. Solange’s eclectic fear-no-critic aesthetic means that, for all of her sartorial hits, she has her fair share of misses … not to mention misses that are hits just because she’s wearing them. The singer chose this slinky peach number for a fragrance launch last night, and though I wouldn’t call it a bad look because, well, Solange Knowles doesn’t do bad looks, I am weirdly bothered by the “hanging flap” effect created by the double slit. On a better note, girlfriend is sporting a bangin’ gold cage bracelet. Are you feeling this daring take on the trend, or do you prefer to keep the slit count at one?
Game over, everybody. Solange Knowles, in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana baroque and just dripping in gold, wins. It’s terrycloth sweatpants and old sports bras for me from here on out.
