Solange Knowles loves performing in intimate artsy locations, so it's no surprise that SHE was the surprise performance at Art Basel Switzerland last night.  But nobody likes to surprise folks more than Kanye West....so he popped up and stole the spotlight.

 

Pics & deets inside, plus Sanaa Lathan looking gorgeous at last night's Myspace event....

Solange Knowles was her usual fabulous print-happy self in Mary Katrantzou threads at Art Basel Switzerland last night.  The "True" singer posed it up at 'Better Days', an art bar installation by Mickalene Thomas (pictured below) presented by Absolut Art Bureau in the city of Basel.  And her mom Miss Tina was there in the audience watching the performance:

But Solange wasn't the only star at Art Basel Switzerland.  Mr. West made a surprise appearance in order to hold an impromptu listening session for Yeezus at the Design Miami/Basel Fair.  And Hollywood Reporter says all the high end art dealers and new media collectors skipped out of Solo's performance once they heard Kanye was in the area at Messeplatz hall.  

THR dished:

After jokingly introducing himself as a "celebrity boyfriend," West reminded the crowd that "I got my start in art," rattling off the names of some admittedly prestigious art schools who had accepted West – that is, before the aspiring artist dropped out for lack of technical talent: "I realized I would never be a great visual artist of the world, and started to worry that I would end up working at an ad agency – no offense to anyone who does that."

West dropped a fascinating monologue on the impetus for his album before unveiling the first two tracks, which he played straight from a laptop computer, bobbing over it as the songs played. Before West could release a third, he was interrupted by chants demanding that he sing live. West hesitated, then yielded, delivering an aggressive, a capella performance of "New Slaves," a potent song that climaxed with an anti-Montauk mantra: "I'd rather be in the Factory than the Maybach" and "F--- the Hamptons House!" While he seemed to be biting the hand that feeds him – West casually mentioned that he had been dining with the Kramlachs an hour earlier – the singer concluded the performance by standing at the door, and shaking hands with everyone as they exited.

Nice!

 

Meanwhile over in L.A. last night:

As for SO-HELLA NO! Sit down

As for SO-HELLA NO! Sit down you can not sing! ANYBODY could have stolen the spotlight from you because your voice is TERRIBLE and UNBEARABLE! I notice when this girl sings it's like she is singing with an EXTRA BIG TONGUE or something! I don't know if it's the southern Texas accent or she's SLURRING her words when she sings but all I hear when she sings IS AWFULNESS! I know her mom was CRINGING in the audience and was wishing someone would pull the FIRE ALARM! No need to comment on her attire or hair, we expect her to be weird and try to hard like always!

I love me some Sanaa she is

I love me some Sanaa she is HELLA GORGEOUS and is one of my favorite actresses along with Thandie Newton and Regina King BUT THIS DRESS! Everybody knows Ms. Lathan is not known for her taste in FASHION! Omg! Enough is Enough! Get your mind right, get over the affair you had with Denzel Washington umpteen years ago! He was NEVER EVER gonna leave Pauletta. I like Denzel but he will continue to cheat on his wife until he or she dies! DO BETTER SANAA you act circles around all your friends like Gabby bad acting Union, Not so cute ghetto acting Taraji P Henson, Regina Hall is cool and funny to me so I have nothing to say about her. I love Sanaa but it is time to hit the gym HARDER wear better clothes preferably like Halle Berry, although that may be REALLY STRETCHING it a bit. Just get a stylist ASAP, STAY OUT OF THOSE CLUBS. Find a man get married you will be 42yrs old in Sept! Sanaa get in shape like the other ladies in their 40's who are in shape like: Gabriel Union, Regina King, Halle Berry, Jada Smith, Tracey E Ross and so on..... Hanging around Chris Brown in a club! NO MA'AM! Sanaa get yourself together! A concerned Fan!

SoLong, girl you are

SoLong, girl you are embarrassing yourself trying to prove you're relevant... I'm guessing modeling is next? I understand you want to be different with fashion. However, girl? That hair and your toes hanging off the front of them shoes... And, they always seem to mention the designer. Like, who cares? Really? It is a mess. Them dry lips all over that mic. Big ears!! Chile, I can't with this chic. She needs to hookup with Ray-J. Maybe then she will at least appear a little exciting. #boring... And how come no one has wifed up Lathan? Hmmmmmmm?!?!
