Solange At The House Of Blues & New Interview+Other Celebs Out & About
Aug 07 | by Natasha
Definitely a cute look on her. She also just did an interview with Parlour magazine. Here's a few snippets: On how she handles the comparisons to Beyonce... "At first I didn't want to make people uncomfortable in interviews, I didn't want to come off rude or arrogant. Now, I just really don't care." On how her upcoming album "Sol-Angel" is different from her 2003 debut Solo Star... "Then I just didn't know how to execute what I wanted. I was 15, and made a record with no identity. I was at a label [Sony] that didn't develop me, they just got all the big heads together and hoped to formulate a big song. I started writing all these Sol-Angel records three years ago but no other artists wanted to cut them. It wasn't cool yet because it was before Amy Winehouse, Adele and Duffy. A few people asked, "why aren't you cutting those records yourself." Geffen gave me the opportunity to record, turn it in and sign when I was done. I thought for sure I'd do an indie record, where I am happiest, but the key and the challenge now is trying to work with label and get them to know me." On why she's not your average R&B artist... "I have never felt at home in one demographic. That's my struggle with management and my label, getting everyone to identify that just because I'm African-American, that doesn't mean that I'm an urban artist. I make music for people that have a sophisticated ear and are brave enough to support something non-traditional. People complain about the state of music, but there are alot of diverse and talented artists with people that support them. But their fans aren't the ones calling the radio station, they just want to see a good show. So I said, we should just do a tour and all of the artists that are going to be a part of it will have the same voice and stance on music. So, we, Janelle Monae, Chester French, the Knux and I, got all of our managers on the phone and started making a tour happen. It's in the very early stages, but we're trying to put something together."
