Solange Knowles Gives Honest Assessment of Beyonce as a Big Sister

Solange Knowles takes the cover of Interview magazine’s new issue, where she’s interviewed by her older sister Beyonce!

Here’s what the 30-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On Beyonce as an older sister:
BEYONCÉ: And, honestly, growing up, how did I do as a big sister?
SOLANGE: You did a kickass job. You were the most patient, loving, wonderful sister ever. In the 30 years that we’ve been together, I think we’ve only really, like, butted heads … we can count on one hand.
BEYONCÉ: I was expecting something funny, but I’ll take it. Thank you.

On the misconceptions of being a strong woman: “Oh my God, they’re endless! [laughs] One thing that I constantly have to fight against is not feeling arrogant when I say I wrote every lyric on this album. I still have not been able to say that. That’s the first time I’ve actually ever said it, because of the challenges that we go through when we celebrate our work and our achievements… It’s something I’ve learned so much about from you, getting to be in control of your own narrative. And, at this point, it should be an expectation, not something that you’re asking permission for. I feel like I’m getting closer to that, not taking on all the baggage when I have to just stand up for myself and say, “No, I’m uncomfortable with that.” And I really appreciate you and mom being examples of that, being able to speak about our achievements, these things that deserve to be celebrated, without feeling bashful about it.”

On what their mom taught her: “And, as far back as I can remember, our mother always taught us to be in control of our voice and our bodies and our work, and she showed us that through her example.”

Tina Knowles Announces Instagram Break, Says Her Kids Think She's 'Not That Great on Social Media'

Tina Knowles has announced that she will be taking a break from social media after she accidentally liked a negative post about Jennifer Hudson.

The 62-year-old businesswoman and fashion designer has been active on Instagram over the years, but it doesn’t sound like her daughters Beyonce and Solange are pleased about it.

“They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful,” Tina wrote.

Tina caused a little bit of controversy on Instagram this week after she accidentally and unknowingly pressed the “like” button on a comment that said something mean about Jennifer‘s voice.

“I am writing this commentary for Jennifer Hudson and not for the evil mean people that are making this into a social media ugly thing. I’ve known Jennifer Hudson for many years and have totally been in admiration of her talent and beauty and kindness I would never ever say anything negative about her or agree with anything negative!” Tina said in her lengthy note on Instagram. “My children worried that I might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites and have warned me about it. They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful.”
