Solange: She was the 'most patient' sister ever
Singer Solange Knowles has gushed about Beyonce for teaching her some valuable lessons and being so “patient” with her over the years.
In a piece for Interview magazine, the XO hitmaker asked Solange how she did as a big sister. She replied: “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.”
Beyonce reacted by adding: “I was expecting something funny, but I’ll take it. Thank you.”
And Solange also discussed how she has learned not to get carried away by people’s notion of being a strong, independent woman.
She shared: “Oh my God, they’re endless! 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.”
The singer has learned to celebrate her achievements without feeling shame or “bashful,” adding: “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.”
