Solange Knowles has recorded a public service announcement for Get Schooled, a television program airing September 8th on several cable networks. “Getting through school is hard enough and when things are not straight at home it can seem a whole lot worse, and what do you do,” Solange asks in the PSA. “Some of us have the kind of personalities that we feel like we can take life on our own and most of us need the support. I’m not talking about friends who can cheer you up or other peers, I’m talking about an adult in your life. This adult can be anyone. Talk to your teachers, your guidance counselors, religious groups, someone at your church. Tell them that you want to graduate and go on to college. Everyone needs education and everyone needs support.” Watch it below.

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 salon.
im. not. mad. at . all of you. that have made your opinions known. and have sent negative. energy. my way. i expected this of you.
you. have. the right to have. an opinion.

ONLY reason i responded to this i have is because i was disappointed to see my name more talked about then #iranelection

Solange Knowles updated fans on her Twitter account (@solangeknowles), talking about spending Easter without her son Daniel Julez Smith, Jr., who will be spending the holiday with Solange’s ex husband Daniel Smith. Solange writes:
This is when single parent-dom becomes hard. Splitting holidays. Some we spend all together, but this Easter and weekends is dads:) :(
With that said… don’t mind me as I become the anti-Easter bunny around here. Plus he creeped me out when me and Julez met him Saturday.
I’m gonna make Julez an extra cool basket this year. We don’t do traditional around here, we’re all about themes. Hmmmm any ideas?
