RUMOR CONTROL TWITTER BEEF: Solange VS. LaTavia?

So as you all know by now, Solange popped off on all the gossip folks via Twitter who were going hard on her about her newly shaved head.  She posted this lengthy "statement" and followed it with a link to her song "F**k The Industry":
listen. if. i. wanted. to. make. a. statement. i. would. have. twitpic'd. photo shoot. ect. i. was. simply. taking. my. son. to. school.stupid. paps. took. pic. ive. had. my. hair. cut. like. this. for. two. weeks. i. was. NOT. inspired. by anyone. but. my. self. i. have. done. this. twice. in. my. life. i. was 16. i was 18. did. not care about your opinion. then. dont. care. now.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.so. do. i.ONLY reason i responded to this i have is because i was disappointed to see my name more talked about then #iranelection we. gotta. do. better. people.happy. happy. joy. joy "im no soul girl quipped with no afro, im just my god given name. giggles at the word "rant"... im about to eat roscoes chicken and waffles with julezy and my buddies. not a rant in sight. http://bit.ly/gFSxo sighs.
But Destiny's Child Rumors points out that former Destiny's Child member LaTavia Roberson was possibly going at Solange and posted these little Tweet nuggets after Solo' "speech":
i dont get the whole shave my head thing. its not edgy its attention seeking. believe me i know. some people look like halle and others look straight up tranny. its a big commitment twitterbugs. personally i keep it cut and clean. dont bring no razors near my crown
LaTavia later said she didn't mean it toward anyone in particular and she posted it without even seeing a "certain news release today."  Meaning Solange's rant. She said this is why she likes to stay out the limelight. Hmm.  I do believe her.  The coincidence is uncanny though.

binky: Solange, chick

binky: Solange, chick please! We all heard that except from “Nappily ever after” so please sit down. I’ am so sick and tried of people telling black woman what they can’t or can’t do to their hair, no weaves, perms, etc. get over it your hair doesn’t define your blackness. Nobody was going after you specifically like you like to believe the haircut isn’t flattering on you, that it. If you want to natural by all means do so but with a hairstyle that suits you. Anyway, what is with Solo and Twitter anyway. That is what she is becoming famous for is her twitter rants and clothing choices nothing else. LaTavia looks good. LOL!!! True

n_satiable: You like who

n_satiable: You like who you like, but I don’t understand the hardcore Solange fans who argue (along with her Twitter post) that she doesn’t care what other people think about her. Liar. If you don’t care, why did you feel the need to give a Gettysburg Address about how much you don’t care? People who don’t care about stuff don’t talk about it. Gossip is what keeps her relevant. This fake nonchalance is so unconvincing.She doesn’t have bad features, but this look (short hair + Rocky Horror Picture Show-inspired shades) is extremely unflattering on her. Short hair is not for everyone. SO AGREE!!! LOL....wannabes are annoying!! Latavia is right. She wasn't talking about 1 person in particular, but it seems like this is becoming a trend. IF you're going to do it do it right!!

I love Solange's hair. And

I love Solange's hair. And no, I don't think it was attention seeking in the least bit. I chopped off all my hair for the same reasons she stated- didn't do it for anybody but myself. And I certainly didn't care what anyone else thought. It was liberating! The most liberating thing I had ever done.

Jeez...Plenty of black women

Jeez...Plenty of black women have shaven heads all the time, it's nothing new in Africa plenty of young girls have it like that. Amber Rose was NOT THE FIRST person to start it and she most definatley will not be the last either. I sincerley think Solange was not asking for attention, she just wanted a break from the wigs, relaxers and weaves like every black women does and she was confident enough to rock it more often. Is it wrong to be inspired? Its our innate nature from birth to copy and imitate, otherwise we cannot survive. So why say its ugly, her head is God's creation its her most natural self so unfair and to call it ugly ...it disappoints me.

why would anyone try to

why would anyone try to emulate amber? Thats the bisexual stripper blunt smoking blond gal!! amber could never be on the same level as this young lady even if solange is going through it. I dont think this gal wants to be the next amber..... a pathetic standard of a woman as a comparison to a real young woman like solange. (hair or no hair)
Pedro4prez's picture

My thing is that we never

My thing is that we never know how much hair these celebs had in the first place. Solo always wore a wig or a weave. She just needs enough to braid or to throw on a wig to look like her old self. If I had a few inches of hair I might not think anything of getting my amber rose on too. So not a big deal! I doubt she cut off much.

Solange is upset it took

Solange is upset it took everyone two weeks to notice her hair was gone. Wow, this chick actually reads this ish and then takes the time and thought to respond to it? She needs to stop confirming that she doesn't have a life and let that twitter shit go...since she wants to mention Iran she should go over there and regale them with her deep thoughts on hair and lace fronts *blank stare*

I cosign...maybe she got

I cosign...maybe she got tired of burning, weaving, and just fighting with what God gave her. Black Peoples hair ain't meant to be silky or flowing..quite the opposite...and it can equally as beautiful in its natural state..her head..her crown..her prerogative.. Shon: I COMPLETELY agree with Solange! I think too many of us, black women, define beauty in the form of hair (how long it is and the grade). It is important that we make sure that we define beauty from the inside (first) , THEN out. You go Solange. I have a new respect for you! I HEART your strength and boldness!Namaste

She has done it before.

She has done it before. Except before we didnt have all these gossip sites and she wasnt so known I guess. On Jay-z FADE TO BLACK movie she was toasting with a short fro. Never cute on her. She act like one of those women who will never have a man so they do and act like it

Black models have been wearing their hair like this for years. I remember when tyra shaved off that the one black girl's hair and dyed it blonde. People givng A.Rose all of this credit but its been done many times before.

Love the "Fuck the Industry"

Love the "Fuck the Industry" track! You can tell Solo takes no shit...and I also love her album Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams...why didn't that album get the credit it deserved...it was the kind of album anyone could listen to from the old generation to the new...i luved the old skool vibe...I listened to that album everyday when it first came out...I think we need to stop looking at her as "Beyonce's lil sister" and recognize her as her own brand and the talent she has....homegirl can really sing...especially when she hits those mariah carey notes...lol!

Solange really needs to learn

Solange really needs to learn to choose her battles. Sadly, we are now living reactionary times, where everything is so instant that people stop thinking and just react to whatever is being done and said. Longivity in this business is having the ability to just let things roll off of your back. Take it from the Jacksons.

Leave her alone...she's

Leave her alone...she's right. We spend too much money weaved up etc. not loving ourselves. We are all beautiful and maybe she was was sick of perms and it damages her scalp. It happened to me. I was perming the hell out of my hair and damaged my scalp...hair was fly has hell but I had sores, dandruff, pus and all kind of crap due to years of permimg, weaving, spritzing, etc. I am now free with a short curly afro and I love it! And so does my gorgoeus hubby

ugh Solange is so lame.She's always so bitter and has a "I'm so cool and edgy so stop comparing me to Beyonce" pity party every week. Apparently the Knowles didn't pay this girl much attention when she was growing up because she stays trying too hard

I agree with Solange.

I agree with Solange. However, as for the people who can't find Iran on a map, I am sure Beyonce is one of them. That girl couldn't locate NY on a map!

Solange is doing what she

Solange is doing what she needs to do. And for those of you asking why respond... well b/c that is who she is. Maybe she doesn't have a filter b/t her brain and her mouth and neither do I. So whatever I am thinking I say. It can be very freeing for the soul to say whatever is on your mind w/o sugarcoating it. Her bluntness has nothing to do with her age. It is just who she is. I give her much props for cutting her hair. I have done it before and being able to get in the shower and wash my hair everyday or just let the water run over it w/o having to worry about styling it is one of the best feelings ever.

i dont understand how she's

i dont understand how she's freeing herself from the bondage of weaves/perms and how she doesnt care what people think if she shaved it only to slap on a european style wig later on...but that's just me. But I do like how she looked w/short hair at her baby shower....this time around it's killing me softly. I'm beginning to suspect she's always been bald/very short fro under the wigs...

cestmoijoley: I personally

cestmoijoley: I personally dont like the way the current cut looks on solange.I have however seen the old cut when she was pregnant and had a bit more hair, and i think she looked nice.Now, why does a weave or long/short permed hair have to be viewed as “bondage that black women put on themselves”…hair is hair, long short cut off permed dyed…thats someones personal preference, just like solanges is wigs weaves and short cuts. Like come on, you claim to not care about what people think then go off on ppl on twitter…WHY twitter then? does she talk to her fans as much as she addresses the “haters” on twitter?? Because people get on your fuckin nerves, that's why. I'd do the same.

Bump all the haters! Like

Bump all the haters! Like she said, she don't give a damn what yall think. She cut it the way SHE wanted it cut and I think it looks great! FREEDOM from spending money on weaves and hairstyles that you could use for something else. Solange is a very beautiful, self-confident, intelligent and attractive young woman no matter what. Keep doing you Solanage. :) You rock baby!

Bow Wow is who made the

Bow Wow is who made the comment about her needing a line up and his barber would do it..he said ppl need to stop trying to be like Amber Rose... That's why she said that about the line up... Bow Wow is such a b*tch. I sooo unfollowed his classless ass.

To all you that's saying

To all you that's saying Solange is "keeping it real", she was just at an event with a wig on. So you can kill all that noise. Cutting your hair or going "natural" is not a measuring stick of what real is.

Solange is delusional and so

Solange is delusional and so are her supporters. She don't care about what people think but she stay defending herself. Ho sit down. I don't blame LaTavia. You can't say ish w/o it becoming some drama when it's not. If she don't get the bold head, she don't get it.

Solange and LaTavia both could have kept these comments. Anytime people say "I don'care care what people say" they cleary DO care what people say. And for LaTavia to reappear out of the ether for this is pretty sad. Oh well--live and learn . . .
