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.

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.

“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!
