Solange And Husband Alan Ferguson SPLIT After 11 Years Together: ‘A N*gga Ain’t Perfect’

Rumors have been swirling for quite some time, but now it’s official official — Solange and Alan Ferguson have separated after being together 11 years .

They met in 2008 after being introduced by Janelle Monae and eventually got married in 2014.

Solange took to Instagram to share a note on life and confirm their separation.

She writes:

the past 2 years have brought me more physical and spiritual transition and evolution than ever before
my body left me with no choice but to listen and be still
within that stillness i begin my journey in confronting my worst enemy, fear.
ive lived my best and worst moments in front of the lens and gaze of the world since i was a teenager. ive always tried to live in my truth no matter how ugly or full of love it is. ive also tried to carve out the space to protect my heart, and my life as it unfolds, evolves, and changes. 11 years ago i met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life. early this year we separated and parted ways, (and tho it ain’t nan no body business ?) i find it necessary to protect the sacredness of my personal truth and to live in it fully just as I have before and will continue to do. it is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself. a nigga ain’t perfect, but im leaning into the fear of the unknown and all the glory and power i know exist within god and the universes grace. may all of your transitions no matter how big or small, be kind to you and filled with incredible love and light!

Solange Knowles Rocks a Durag at the 2018 Met Gala

Solange Knowles arrived at the 2018 Met Gala in a look that deserves recognition.

While it’s not the most over-the-top look of the night, Solange’s look is the only Met Gala ensemble we’ve seen to EVER incorporate a durag.

Last night, Solange tweeted out several looks along with a poll asking fans which look they preferred.

Though it didn’t win the poll, Solange opted for the durag look and shut shit down!

Beyoncé Announces Scholarships for Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Just days after her epic Coachella performance, Beyoncé announced the four new schools benefiting from the second installment of the BeyGOOD Initiative’s Homecoming Scholars Award program (previously the Formation Scholars Award program).

One student from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University and Bethune-Cookman University, will receive $25,000 for the 2018-2019 academic year.

via Rolling Stone:

Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment, which houses BeyGOOD, said the program salutes “the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.” She added, “We honor all institutions of higher learning for maintaining culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students.”

Beyoncé established the scholarship in April 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of her 2016 visual LP, Lemonade. While the first year spotlighted young women, the 2018-2019 year will expand to all qualifying students at the four universities, regardless of gender.

The associated disciplines will include literature, creative arts, African American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering. Applicants must maintain a 3.5 or better GPA. The four universities will select all finalists and winners, with recipients announced this summer.

Beyoncé honored the history of HBCUs during her headlining Coachella set on Saturday, incorporating over 150 musicians and dancers – including a marching band and choir – into her detailed set, which also included guest spots from Jay Z, Solange and her former Destiny’s Child members.

Solange And Kanye West Model In Helmut Lang’s New Project

Solange and Kanye West are both basically fashion icons in their own right, but the two musicians just starred in a new project for Helmut Lang.

Teaming up with Exactitudes, an ongoing photo project since 1994, Helmut Lang tapped Solange, West and ten other multi-generational fans of the fashion label for a photo series to highlight the brand’s biggest collectors.  

Solange posed in a t-shirt from the Re-Edition Volume 1 collection with a pair of Helmut Lang seen by Shayne Oliver shorts while Kanye wore a hooded parka and sweater from the Re-Edition Volume 1 line and his own Helmut Lang jeans. The photos were shot by Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, the founders of Exactitudes, in a similar three-by-four grid style they’ve become famous for.
