The Dragon's Last Puff

My dearest friend, Jayne , has asked me to blog about Solange Knowles' new do...or don't. I honestly would've never guessed that Solange would do such thing! I know my readers are asking "what does Beau think?!". Well, I feel like to each his/her own. I always admired how she kept up with her "dragon, as she would refer to her hair, but I wasn't totally shocked at this "stunt". I feel like most gossip sites will say how it's a cry for attention or that she is following the whole Amber Rose and Cassie movement. I don't believe she did it for either reasons. As Solange stated,
"dont. need. your. attention. or. your. co-sign. i am #3. trending topic. before. IRAN. &. some of you cant even locate it on a map. its sad.dont. want. a. edge. up. or a perm. because. im not trying. to make this "a style" or a statement.i. just. wanted. to. be. free. from. the. bondage. that. black. women sometimes. put. on. themselves. with. hair.this. phase. of. my. life. i. want to spend . the time. the energy. and the money. on something else. not in the hair not. mad. at . all of you. that have made your opinions known. and have sent negative. energy. my way. i expected this of you.

I must say, I completely agree with her. Solange stated earlier that she wants to focus on her work more than being obsessed with her "dragon". Hair defines a lot of people. It gives your audience an instant view of your personality, I guess. Curly hair has always been my thing and people always assumed that I was outgoing, wild, and mysterious...They were right. Although I co-sign Solange's perspective, she still looks like an old mom. First of all, she needs a shape-up A.S.A.P! She should also color her hair a dark pink, her complexion would automitcally accept the appreciation! That's just my future planning for it. Solange has always been able to be an individual from this wrecked industry. If she wants to shave off all her glorious hair, then let her! She clearly doesn't want to make a "statement" with her ceasar.

I love you, Beau. I really do. I wanted you to weigh in on this and because you did- I'm actually feeling her little buzz (inducing) cut, now. Thanks for sharing your perspective. I thought she flipped her wig like Cassie but for her to point out that fact about Iran shows she indeed has her head matter how much it now resembles a tennis ball. Backhand! =)

Thanks for taking my request, Babes! I will surely return the favor if asked.
