The better Knowles sister (sorry, it had to be said), Solange, released an EP last year that was so good, there are no words for it. While she’s working on her next full-length album, she released a new video for one of the EP tracks, ‘Lovers in the Parking Lot’, on Wednesday to sort of hold us over until she gets to it. It’s so good!

Mathew Knowles got hitched last Sunday, but TMZ has learned neither of his daughter … Beyonce nor Solange … was in attendance for the big day.
Knowles tied the knot to Gena Avery in Houston, TX following a year and a half engagement.
But the newly-hitched Knowles tells TMZ his famous kids couldn’t make it to the ceremony, saying, “Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend.”
You know what, it sucks, but I get it. Sometimes the timing is all wrong and you have to work. And if it’s hard enough for your average Dave to get out of work to go to a family’s wedding, it’s gotta be 10x harder for Beyoncé because she has no one to cover for her (assuming of course, that work is the real reason…I guess “previous engagements” could be a nice way of saying “I’m mad you divorced mom so I’m not going to support you.” I don’t know). Solange Knowles, though, really? Cannes is over. Where else do you need to be and what else do you need to do?
Hopefully Mrs. Carter sent her dad a case of champagne…and In-N-Out burgers.

Cannes film festival is going on right now in France and everyone is GLAMMED THE HELL UP. I like it. Here are the looks that stood out to me, for better or worse. But if you want to get right down to it:
BEST: Isla Fisher
WORST: Julianne Moore
I JUST DON’T KNOW: Zhang Yuqi
Carey Mulligan, seen here with Baz Luhrhraznamann. (Luhrmann). She looks gorgeous but holy hell, where’s the rest of her?? Is she okay? Does she know she’s allowed to smile? Even LANA DEL REY is smiling. Jesus.

Good morning, y’all! How are we doing? I hope that it is not too early for overwhelming patterns in bright colors wherever you are, because I want to talk about Solange Knowles. I dare say that even in that outfit, she’s still better looking than her diva of a sister. I would go further and speculate that, despite of her proverbial quirkiness, Solange is also degrees more normal than Beyoncé.
I love Solange’s style – she’s content with exploring music and art for their very sake, and her ambition seems to be healthily aimed just at the margin of mainstream showbusiness. In so many words, I feel I can respect Solange for her reluctance to undress in order to impress, and for making catchy neo-soul tunes I don’t mind whistling while I go about my day.
If you would like to catch up with Solange, she will be performing at the upcoming annual Armory Party at the Museum of Modern Art on March 6, the night before the opening of the New York mega-fair. Until then, enjoy my favorite song of hers, “Losing You”.

B’s sister, Solange, who I normally don’t follow on Twitter because she’s excessively strange (and not in a fun, quirky, or cute way), fired off an interesting Tweet the other day that I just happened to catch this morning, and it was all about the status of sister Beyonce‘s womb. From Solange’s Twitter:
So, OK. We’ve apparently narrowed recent delivery options down to “not,” and according to family, Beyonce is (or at least was, as of Monday) still “carrying” her child. The child is not undergoing makeup and hair, the child is not in transit via a slippery birth canal, and the child is not on her way to People magazine’s headquarters to pose for multi-million-dollar photo shoots.
Finally, I was laying in bed last night, unable to sleep, and I got to thinking about …

Go ahead, guess. Here’s a hint: you’ll never be able to guess. Because it’s absurd and it involves a giant inflatable banana.
Here’s what went down. Beyonce‘s wacky little sister, Solange, was down in Miami Beach, and she was just trying to have a good time, you know, she was just trying to do her thing. She wanted to mosey on into a club and have some fun that way, and that’s her prerogative, but our girl was denied entry. Why? Because she had the inflatable banana, of course!
Cops say Beyonce’s younger sis tried entering Club Cameo in Miami Beach and was denied because she was holding a 5-foot tall, inflatable banana. According to cops, Solange began complaining that she was turned away for racial reasons.
Cops say Knowles became unruly with off-duty officers, who took her across the street to try and calm her down. Solange claims that’s when cops pulled a “weapon” on her — we’re told she claimed it was a knife — and threatened to deflate the banana.
Miami Beach PD Internal Affairs must investigate all such complaints, so they’re getting in touch with her.
I’m sorry, but I thought that Miami Beach was in America. And I thought that in America, land of the free, you could escort around inflatable fruits of any size without fear of deflation! Wasn’t that written somewhere in the Constitution?
