Solange Knowles Is Angry About All The Attention And Insists The New Bald Look Isn’t A Statement

Talk about backlash! Solange Knowles’ new haircut was documented yesterday afternoon despite the singer having a bald head for over 2 weeks… and boy did the public respond. It wasn’t all kind and Beyonce’s little sister couldn’t take it anymore. She spent the entire day yesterday tweeting her frustrations.

This isn’t even it all – it’s just all I could fit on my screen.

What do you think about all the fuss the media is making over her hair cut? Were they talking about her beforehand? Does she have the right to be angry?

    I’d get frustrated too. She has the right to be pissed off. She shaved her head two weeks ago and now seemingly the whole world is talking about how ugly or pretty she is. She’s really not in the spotlight that much, so it would be annoying.

    “Nobody” meaning you dont have cameras following your every move. Stop being such a trolling b.tch.

    Solange has so much time to tweet because she doesn’t have a solo career and she desperately wants attentionto start here lagging career. She may of cut her hair a couple of weeks ago, but she paid the paps to “release” the pics to the press to garner attention and buzz.

    She still looks like Orlando Jones.

    Actually, I totally agree with Solange. All of you are doing exactly what she is asking you not to do: giving her your personal opinion on her hair. Why should she care? I believe her when she says it’s not a statement. Her hair has been like this for two weeks. And she makes a very good point about black women and the drama and history behind black womens’ hair. She’s beautiful. I actually prefer her to Beyonce. She’s smart. Leave her alone people.

  7. Tralalalala says

    She’s full of crap about not caring what anyone thinks of her new ‘do. She loves the attention and that’s why she did it. Shaving her head sets her apart from and distinguishes her from Beyonce. She will never be as successful as her sister and will always live in her shadow because she’s not as talented as Beyonce. I agree with another poster that Solange is often bitchy in her comments to the media and also in interviews. She seems to have a major attitude problem.

    I have to say that women like you make it very difficult for other women to express themselves in their own unique way. Just because she doesn’t look TYPICAL like yourself doesn’t mean she isn’t pretty too. Based on your avatar, you would never stand out in the crowd or turn men’s heads. You are certainly no Salma Hayek, so to speak. I admire Solange for being bold and bald-headed. Unlike you, she isn’t afraid to take a chance in life!

    with that haircut it seems as if she’s trying to get some attention so ppl can talk about her………….well it worked for a few mins.

  10. Li Bogota says

    I don’t see what all the fuss is about. Not that my opinion matters, but I think it looks nice. Whatever her reasons for doing it are her own business, whether it was to make a statement, give her hair some time off, or to distinguish herself from her sister….I mean, does it even matter? I can say on a personal level I would bet the reason was to give her hair a break. I kept my head shaved for a long time for that reason….relaxers, salons, flat irons, blow dryers, all those damn chemicals…..that crap gets really old.

  11. Nanea says

    I like the way she looks, but I don’t get how someone can have so much free time on their hands that they spend all day on Twitter.

  12. audrey says

    They need to lock her in the basement again–and yes I read D Listed too. Seriously, if you do not want to draw attention to yourself you do not shave your head and then tweet about the attention that bald do is creating.

  13. Jan says

    Anytime anyone ( famous or non ) shaves their head people talk. If you dont want people to talk then dont shave your head. You have to know it will get attention. Why does she want to be famous again? She doesnt want people to take photos of her in concert or talk about her new hair do(nt). Stay the f.ck home then and become a nobody like the rest of us. As for her being higher ranked on twitter, its twitter ! W(hy)TF would people be talking about Iran on a site considered a fun past time? If you want Iran chatter go to CNN.

    If she wanted to free her damned self from the “Black Woman Bondage” (BLAH BLAH BLAH!) then why in the hell did she show up with a wig on at some event shortly after this pic was taken!

    This girl is WAY TOO cocky for her own good.

    When are you folks gonna get it. She did what the hell she wanted to do. Blacks are always concerned about their hair. What about trying to go to school and learn something else besides worrying about hair. I bet you don’t have a career or anything. As far as Orlando Jones, please! you look like him i bet. Go and read a book or something or watch fox news.

    Genius, that probably isn’t even Beyonce’s real hair. That’s probably a weave or a wig or hair extensions! And if it isn’t, do you know how many hours out of her life she has to spend on her hair to keep it looking like a white woman’s so people will find her acceptable? That’s what Solange was talking about when she said she wanted out of the hair oppresion.

  19. thomas says

    She should try to make her hair more like her sister beyonce. That bald look is so out. That look went out with Sinead Oconner. Also we as her fans have the right to comment on her hair. She should appreciate all her fans. With the money she makes from us she can afford to spend a few hundred a year getting work done on her longer hair. Sure short hair is easier to maintain, but you want to look good too. Solange I am sure you are not so strapped for cash that you have to take these measures to save a dollar! Even if you are not as successful as beyonce yet. If things are really that bad for you in the money department. There is no harm in asking Beyonce for help. I am sure it would be no problem to give you some money to have a higher maintaince doo. If Beyonce with all her money can’t help her own flesh and blood, who can she help?

    If by some chance she doesn’t want to help you out, you can pawn those sunglasses and be good for the next year at least.

    you tell it, girl. i am not black, but I can only imagine the subconscious psychological pressure black women have to go through everyday, with the expectations over what society thinks they should look like. women like tyra, oprah, halle, etc wear wigs or weaves because white society does not accept kinky hair as “beautiful”. solange is having a twitter freakout for a good reason: she is experiencing the double-consciousness that w.e.b. dubois was talking about. (look it up before talking smack) good for you, solange.

    Wasn’t it half shaved? It did look bad, better now that she is just bald altogether. I shaved my hair years ago, and it was amazing how people react to you as a bald female…. I mean, its just hair (or lack of it!!) for goodness sake. I found it a very liberating and insightful experience.

  23. Anonymous says

    Despite what many people here have said, I disagree and think she looks kinda hot! Black women can look really sexy with very short hair and I admire her for being brave enough to be different from all the other weave or perm wearing clones out there! At least she is cleancut, shapely and not all tatted up. I even think she would look good completely bald-headed as well. These same fruitcakes have given Amber Rose a hard time too. But she doesn’t give a !@# what people say.

    Stay strong Solange, some men like myself find you very alluring.

    I shaved my hair in January in support of a sister undergoing chemotherapy; it was a scary and in some ways a liberating feeling. I had colored my hair for years to cover the gray. It grew out in a great silver color and now I accept and own my image. I can’t imagine going back to coloring, straightening, streaking anymore..it is healthy, shiny and I like it this way now. Let the woman be.

  25. Monica says

    Then, um, shut up about is Solange. I didn’t even know about it till you started blabbing about it.

  26. missknowitall says

    Ok first of all halle does not wear wigs or weaves, she allows her hair to grow and chooses to cut it. That is oprah’s hair that has been chemically treated and tyra does wear weaves. So please get your facts straight before u try to articulate your thoughts into words. Secondly, not all black woman are oppressed by the stigmas that society had placed on us and solange is a prime example along with angie stone and jill scott

    why does she write like that? my head hurts. go back to school.
    If you shave you’r head and “don’t care what people think” – don’t spend all day having a spaz about how much you don’t care what people think. it makes you look like a fool. ignore it and move on

    it does’nt matter what anyone has to say about whatever she do or dont do at the end of the day the only person who has to live with it is Solange. Girl the best thang i can tell you to say is “fuck all of them”
    And its funny how cant nobody post there names put can post all that bullshit about the woman.Girl fuck them all, keep making dat money.

  31. nunya says

    I agree with jan 100%. Solange looks and sounds as crazy as her twitter comments. she only did this to get people to talk and for publicity. she is crying out for attention. If you dont want people to talk … why shave your head? either she had a meltdown like an a-list celeb we know or she wants to be in the spotlight. and i hate when hypocrits come on here and try to talk smak about people who comment. its call free speech and everyone is entittled to their own opinions kristi. ok boo boo.

    This is pretty much the biggest story to ever come from Solange, because let’s face it, who knows WTF she does other than being Beyonce’s sister. So of course she’s going to post 69 things on her blog because this is her big break at fame!

    What the HELL were you thinking, boo boo? I’ve been wearing my hair natural for over a decade now. Just because you’re in a “happy to b nappy” phase right now, that doesn’t mean that you STOP taking care of your hair. You may not spend time in a salon, but you need to go to an excellent barber to keep the “naps” regulated. Sweetie, I need to cuss your barber slam out and so do you! You’re a very pretty young woman, but your natural needs a LOT of work!

    I don’t like this talentless little girl, but I give her props for doing something I wish I could. I don’t dare cut off my hair and go around like that.

    I agree, she should stop b1iching. her and her sister need some help, they can both be pretty obnoxious

    This. girl. seriously. has. issues. lol. she says she doesn’t care what people thing, but then “tweets” about it in 5 minute intervals on her twitter wall. Just about everytime this girl opens her mouth I have noticed that she has been b.i.t.c.h.y. don’t like her at all.

    Oh, and I hate twitter.

    Why do you people fucking care about a haircut? There are people all over the world suffering, and this is news? What the fuck??!! You’re gonna judge someone for Twittering about it but sit around all day on the fucking internet making comments about a person you know absolutely nothing about.

  41. Appa says

    Go Solange! Why can’t black women wear their natural hair without catching all kinds of hell for it?! She’ll have a big fluffy fro in no time! Too many periods in the wrong places, tho. lol. :)

    She should be happy for the publicity because she sure doesn’t get from her music. I don’t care about her hair, but she should be grateful to even be in the news.

    Come one now. We all know Beyonce’s hair looks like this underneath all the lacefront wigs. Unfortunately Solange does not have the bone structure to pull this off. At least she’s confident and doesn’t care.

    Most of you idiots are the ones who think Britney Spears actually has talent. jealous haters. Screw them Solange, do you.

    Excuse my french, but it is FUCK!NG hair. Move on. If people knew the crap that other people were saying about her, then you would understand her frustration. I am sure you would be just as ‘bitchy’ as her if people was criticizing something you choose to do to your head. Long, straight hair isn’t the only hair that can be beautiful. Hard to believe, I know. But, it is true. And, I can’t stand when people say crap like that hairstyle or outfit is so out. Like, do you really sit around looking for what is “in” or “out?” If so, that is truly pathetic. Try doing what you want and not following what everybody think is hot or not. It is hair and it will grow back. Man, it never ceases to amaze me just how superficial people can be. If all she wanted was attention, I guess it is working.

    Why the heck does she have periods after every freaking word. Her blabbing all day is the perfect reason why I never (and will never) sign up for Twitter.

    It’s hair, in most cases it usually grows back.
    How even celebrity haircuts are news ?
