Solange calls out United Kingdom paper for editing her hair


Solange calls out United Kingdom paper for editing her hair

She called out the UK's Evening Standard Magazine on October 19 when she took to Instagram to post an unaltered version of her cover photo with the caption "DTMH" which was about her famous song called Don't Touch My Hair.

The print cover of the magazine, however, pictures Solange sans halo. The cover story included a gorgeous photo shoot and multiple quotes from Solange about the importance, pride, and power of hair in her own life and the lives of black women.

Whether it is her hair or her clothes, Solange is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in and become a voice of her generation.

Solange, much like her big sister Beyoncé, is exceptionally selective about how, when, and where she shares her images and thoughts.

Solange has called out The Evening Standard Magazine after it appeared to digitally edit out some of her braids from its front cover. In fact, Solange shared an image of the cover on Instagram Stories, circling the place where her braid had been erased, and where there is now nothing but blank space in its place. "Still need to wake up and do some pinching".

One of the photographers on the shoot, Daria Kobayashi Ritch, posted her own response.

But also a screenshot of the part of the story that mentions Solange's affection and appreciation for black hair and braiding. "I got to experience women arriving in one state of mind and leaving in a completely transformed way", she said. "It wasn't just about the hair", she continued.

The 31-year-old "Seat at the Table" singer, who's having the best year of her career thus far, says she's lost out on opportunities because of her demand to "own" her body and how it's shown. "It was about the sisterhood and the storytelling", Knowles said in the interview.

And her love of the Orion constellation, which that braided crown alluded to as well.

"Wild that you'd edit a sculpture by an artist", one person commented on the magazine's Instagram page.
