UK Magazine Apologizes to Solange Knowles


The Evening Standard apologizes to Solange Knowles for photoshopping her hair...

The apology came after Solange noticed her intricate braid halo had been photoshopped off the cover of the Evening Standard and @'d the mag with the acronym for her single 'Don't Touch My Hair.'


An apology posted online reads,
We were delighted to have the chance to interview the wonderful Solange Knowles and photograph her for this week’s edition of ES magazine.
It is therefore a matter of great regret that the finished cover artwork of the magazine caused concern and offence.
The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange.
In the article, which you can read here, Solange spoke about remaining as focused on art as she is on music, despite her brilliant third album being both a critical and commercial success.

She looks better without that tacky Halo.

@11:27 I was just about to say that. Sometimes Solange wants to be so damn different that she makes herself look foolish.

Where were they gonna fit that big thing on a magazine cover, unless she wanted them to shrink her head down to the size of a penny.

Misplaced outrage.

So if they chose to include the hairstyle and had to cut off the dress to accommodate space, she would be whining that they left out her beautiful afrocentric dress. Smh. You can't win with nutcases.

The magazine made the right decision she looks better without that extra thing on top of her head.

^^^^All of This^^^^^^^^^

Both of the Knowles sisters have established a reputation of "being extremely thirsty heifers who's always doing too damn much and always trying too damn hard". They come out as if they're trail blazers, yet every move they make is from their copy and paste collection.

Forget that, all they had to do was zoom out. If it was some white girl appropriating African culture. They didn't get her message so they ignored it. IMO

I bet if a white bitch hair was like this the cover would read innovative and all kinds of shit. They knew exactly what they were doing.

I like the cover and I like the other photos as well

The Halo is Beautiful in My Opinon and reflective of who Solange is.
Let her be Unique.
Can You let her be Her?

My sentiments exactly

Thirsty or not, at the very least The Evening Standard should have informed Solange about the photos edits. Especially since the cover says that Solange will discuss "Body Politics" (i.e., policies through which powers of society regulate the human body). Goodness.

@12:11,

I agree.

They had to crop the photo for the best shot. besides, isn't she wearing that wire in the other images inside the 'zine? Much ado about...entitled celebrities.

My opinion said...

Yeah I agree they did her...... hell they did US all a favor that shit looks stupid

Nothing says black is beautiful like a blonde!

So now Solange is in charge of a private business's creative art department. She's luck anyone asked her to be on their cover - she is vile.

She needs to stay in her own lane or just don't come out in the real world. ugh

Lmao! So accurate.

@TheOne thank god another person who hates blonde black women. Blondstrosities seem to be all over America. I don't understand it. I hardly see any black women with blonde hair in the UK. I hate it myself. I would never!

Just an observation said...

Black people want to be Melanesian so bad in the US. Having naturally blond hair is normal it seems everywhere else other than here.
