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.

Solange Diagnosed With Autonomic Disorder

Solange recently revealed that she is experiencing health issues. In a post on her social media page, Solange shared that she has an autonomic disorder.

Wrote, deleted and re wrote this like 5 times… Still not sure what exactly or how much I want to share… However it’s so important to me for the people in South Africa, a place that has tremendous meaning to me and that has given me SO SO MUCH, to know why I won’t be performing at Afro Punk this NYE. The past five months I have been quietly treating, and working through an Autonomic Disorder. It been a journey that hasn’t been easy on me… Sometimes I feel cool, and other times not so cool at all. It’s a complicated diagnoses , and I’m still learning so much myself, but right now, my doctors are not clearing me for such an extended lengthy flight, and doing a rigorous show right after. I can’t put into words how saddened and sorry I am that I am unable to perform for you guys this NYE, there is simply no other place I wanted to be than there with my family to bring in 2018 with you…….but I give you my ABSOLUTE WORD I will come back with AfroPunk and deliver this performance…..as it is so extremely important to me to connect with the people who have so closely inspired me in so many ways. I can’t thank Afro Punk enough for their support, and to all of the other festivals this past summer/fall who have known about my health, kept it confidential, and gone out of their way to make me feel supported while doing these shows. As a part of the self care that I’ve tried to encourage this past year, it needs to start with myself, and I’m looking forward to doing a better job of this 2018. This past year has been one of the most fulfilling of my life… Performing this record and experiencing the energy exchange with you guys has been astounding, and I’m so excited about continuing to do the work I feel so absolutely humbled and appreciative to be doing next year. It gives me life.

“It’s a complicated diagnoses , and I’m still learning so much myself, but right now, my doctors are not clearing me for such an extended lengthy flight, and doing a rigorous show right after,” Solange wrote.

Symptoms can include problems with the regulation of heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, perspiration, and bowel and bladder functions. Other symptoms include fatigue, lightheadedness, feeling faint or passing out (syncope), weakness, and cognitive impairment, according to info given by the Mayo Clinic.

Over 1 million  Americans suffer from some form of autonomic disorder.

In 2016, Solange found her own voice by releasing the classic album, A Seat at the Table. She was scheduled to perform at the Afro Punk show in South Africa on New Year’s Eve. However, she will have to cancel the show due to the health disorder.

Solange Knowles Directing SZA’s ‘The Weekend’ Video?

SZA’s debut album ‘Ctrl’ is one of the most talked about about releases of the summer.

In an interview with USA Today, SZA let us in on a little something thats cooking up… the next video to be released from ‘Ctrl’ will be for “The Weekend” — directed by sis Solange Knowles.

via Complex:

“I love her,” said SZA. “I think the universe is just bringing us closer to each other. That’s my homegirl.”

According to B. Scott – If another artist going to be in charge of the visuals for your song, it may as well be Solange. She already showed an affinity for it with a performance piece at The Guggenheim, titled “An Ode To,” and she’s debuting a new performance art piece in Texas later this fall. Allegedly, the video for “The Weekend” takes place at 10 different locations, so the duo sounds like they’re sparing no expense putting this thing together.Even if you throw out the video, the two singers have been spending a decent amount of time around each other later. Both are performing at the Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn on Saturday, and if they’re as tight as SZA makes it seem like they are, they’ll be using plenty of their backstage time to cook up some ideas together. Maybe a collaboration is in the works, because it’s fairly well known they share a mutual admiration for each other’s work.

Im so excited two of my faves are linking up for GREATNESS!

Girls’ Trip : New Orleans For Essence Festival

Essence Festival is the mother of all festivals its been going down since 94′ Its the official party with a purpose, and this year the legacy continued with four days of music, empowerment, community and entertainment.

Big names in the game like Queen Latifah , Jada Pinkett Smith , Larenz Tate , Issa Rae and more where in the building to inspire us. While Mary J. Blige , Diana Ross , Chance the Rapper , Xscape and more where there to keep us on our feet. It was truly an amazing experience.

Tell ‘Em Girl! Solange Claps Back

1446490579_488292309_solange-julez-467

It’s no secret that Solange is understandingly protective over her little boy Julez.

On Friday, Solange shared an cool yet fly photo of her 11-year-old son all dressed up in his LL Cool J costume for Halloween.

Screenshot_2015-11-02-23-05-53-1

One rude commenter, @alexandriaaaf felt the need to leave a disrepectful comment about Julez, writing:

“So cute but at the same time he ugly.”

You already know Solange wasn’t about to let that negativity slide. She got the commenter RIGHT together the GROWN WOMAN way.

She responded:

“@alexandriaaaf Jussst as I thought it was safe to share pictures again, a young’n like you decides to use her time to spread ugliness,” she began. “I don’t fault you, I can only imagine why you would feel the need to say such things, but thanks again for being a reminder that out of all the love and wonderful energy shared, that when I open up a space for an innocent beautiful being like my boy to be criticized and judged, that I WILL most likely respond, and that he receives enough love and celebration  at home that it’s just not worth it to go down this road. I hope that this really resonates with you and you make better decisions in the future towards how you use your words towards innocent children. And @ro.rxd get ya friend because this could have truly gone south if I was in the wrong mood.”

You really have to be some type of pathetic to leave rude comments about someone’s child.
