ES Magazine offers 'unreserved apologies' to Solange Knowles

Share

The "Cranes in the Sky" singer, 31, covers the Evening Standard Magazine latest issue, and while she looks handsome as always, her hairstyle has been blatantly photoshopped with a disturbing adjustment.

In addition to her physical characteristics, Solange has spoken out on important political issues such as the Take a Knee protest, where she joined others for the movement after performing at the Hollywood Bowl on September 24.

The journalist who interviewed Solange has also expressed her dismay.

"I got to experience women arriving in one state of mind and leaving in a completely transformed way", she recalled to the mag of her experiences at her mother's salon.

"The brunette beauty said: "[It is] an act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition.it is its own art form". It wasn't just about the hair. The "editing" is pretty puzzling, especially since the magazine specifically asked Solange about her love for hair. It was about the sisterhood and the storytelling.

Alicia Keys Returns to The Voice for Season 14
Now she is back on The Voice and ready to defend her "crown", as she tells Kelly Clarkson in the video announcement. Although Keys' return seems to be highly anticipated, at the moment, "The Voice" Season 13 is still taking place.

The Evening Standard shared the whole breathtaking photoshoot inside the magazine-seriously, I audibly gasped and was momentarily robbed of my breath-on its own Instagram feed and Solange's hair is intact in every photo. "Being a young girl who was really active in dance, theatre and on the swim team, the salon was a kind of safe haven".

Following the publication of the cropped image, Solange communicated her ire by posting the original image on Instagram with the caption "dtmh" - an abbreviation of Don't Touch My Hair, which is a track which features on her 2016 album A Seat at the Table.

She told her Twitter followers she was "publicly disowning" the piece as it was a "fiasco despite my efforts". I don't want this piece attached to my rep as a writer at all.

What are your thoughts on how Knowles handled the situation?
