The Knowles sisters keep it in the family as Beyoncé interviews Solange for the February issue of Interview.

Looking stunning on the cover, shot by Mikael Jansson, the “Cranes in the Sky” songstress offers a calm glare. Inside the magazine, she appears confident and elegant, wearing DKNY, Marni, David Hart, Miu Miu, and Balenciaga.

During the interview, Solange opens up about what it was like to have Queen Bey as a big sis. “You did a kickass job,” she tells her older sibling. “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.”

Bey mostly handles questions here, but she also adds a few tidbits about her little sis. “I remember thinking, ‘My little sister is going to be something super special,'” she recalls. “Because you always seemed to know what you wanted.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Solange speaks about her 2016 standout A Seat at the Table, the inspiration behind “Cranes in the Sky,” and how influences ranging from Aaliyah to Master P served her well on this project. See highlights from the Q&A below.

SOLANGE ON A SEAT AT THE TABLE: “It really started with wanting to unravel some truths and some untruths. There were things that had been weighing heavy on me for quite some time. And I went into this hole, trying to work through some of these things so that I could be a better me and be a better mom to Julez and be a better wife and a better friend and a better sister. Which is a huge part of why I wanted you to interview me for this piece. Because the album really feels like storytelling for us all and our family and our lineage. And having mom and dad speak on the album, it felt right that, as a family, this closed the chapter of our stories. And my friends’ stories–every day, we’re texting about some of the micro-aggressions we experience, and that voice can be heard on the record, too. The inspiration for this record came from all of our voices as a collective, and wanting to look at it and explore it. I’m so happy I got to take my time in that process. And the end result feels really rewarding.”

SOLANGE ON MASTER P: “I remember reading or hearing things about Master P that reminded me so much of Dad growing up. And they also have an incredible amount of love and respect for one another. And I wanted a voice throughout the record that represented empowerment and independence, the voice of someone who never gave in, even when it was easy to lose sight of everything that he built, someone invested in black people, invested in our community and our storytelling, in empowering his people. You and I were raised being told not to take the first thing that came our way, to build our own platforms, our own spaces, if they weren’t available to us. And I think that he is such a powerful example of that.”

SOLANGE ON MISSY ELLIOTT: “One of my biggest inspirations in terms of female producers is Missy. I remember seeing her when you guys worked together and being enamored with the idea that I could use myself as more than a voice and the words.”

SOLANGE ON AALIYAH: “Aaliyah was also a huge influence and has always been. Her vocal arrangements with Static Major are some of my favorite in the world.”


Whoopi Goldberg isn’t too happy with Kanye West.

During Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” the host went off on Yeezy for saying that he didn’t vote during last year’s presidential election.

“I would like [Kim Kardashian] to say to him, ‘Listen, don’t you ever think that saying you didn’t vote was a good idea,'” she said. “Don’t you ever think that that was good. I don’t care who you would have voted for. People died for your right to not vote, you idiot boy. You foolish boy, idiot boy. Don’t ever say that again.”
While Whoopi may not care who Kanye would have voted for, co-host Joy Behar does. In fact, she said she wants to see Kim K argue with Yeezus about his affinity for President-elect Donald Trump, who ‘Ye said he would have voted for if he’d voted at all. “What I would like to see [on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’] is Kim arguing with Kanye over you know who,” she said, “because Kanye said he would have voted for him. That I would like to see.”

This isn’t the first time Mr. West’s been a hot topic on “The View.” Last February, Whoopi denounced his famous Taylor Swift interruption at the 2009 MTV VMAs. “No one has the right to hop up on the stage and tell you you didn’t earn your stuff and you’re not good enough,” she said.

That same month, Goldberg defended Yeezy while seemingly criticizing his wife’s family. “His mother raised him to believe in himself,” she said. “I believe she said to him, ‘If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will.’ She’s not there anymore. And in that family that he’s married into, they eat men. So, in order to maintain who you are, you have to have a strong ego.”
Yeezus made waves last year when he met with Trump after endorsing the President-elect. “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” ‘Ye revealed. “These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”

Obama out. President Barack Obama held his farewell party at the White House on Friday (Jan. 7) and it was the place to be for many stars, including Solange Knowles.

The star-studded guest list also reportedly included Sarah Jessica Parker, Marc Anthony and Oprah Winfrey. The Washington Post had earlier this week also named Oprah Winfrey, J.J. Abrams, Beyoncé and husband Jay Z.

Some of the guests posted photos from the bash, which the White House had said the president and the First Lady would pay for themselves. No pics of them were released publicly.''
Solange had the honor of performing at the star-studded party. “The sound check of life,” she wrote. “Was truly the ultimate, ultimate honor. Can’t even put into words. Really. We will miss your excellence, your grace, and the phenomenal legacy you have let us all share.”
