Solange Collides With Interviewer

Published: Wednesday 27th Aug 2008 by Sam
While promoting her newly released LP ‘Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams’, Solange went head to head with an interviewer on Fox News 5. Check out the clip below:
Granted we don’t know exactly what was said before they went on air, it wasn’t very professional of Solange to check the interviewer in such a way on LIVE TV. It all boils down to the fact that Ms. Knowles has an album that she wants to sell and carrying on as such is not the way to go about doing it.
Yes, it’s easy to understand her frustrations at the constant comparisons, however such comparisons were always gonna happen – something she must know too. So, to put it bluntly, she’s gonna need to get over it ASAP. I’m rooting for her just as much as the next person, but catching an attitude or even inadvertently seeming to do so, isn’t a good look…at all.

Your thoughts?

    you can tell she felt a little silly for even saying anything, but oh well!!! i still went and got the album and its great….i dont even think she said that with attitude, yeah she was wrong for even saying anything, but DAMN she said that in the nicest way possible….If she gonna b a diva, what a nice way to introduce her diva antics. loooool

    How can yall make opinions without seeing the full interview. Obviously a lot was said before the interview that Solange thought was live on TV so her attitude was based on that. Since no one saw what was said how can you form opinions?

  11. Jules August 27, 2008

    Her behaviour was a bit unprofessional but I don’t blame her. She must be sick of the constant Beyonce references.

    the interview wasnt bad at all…she dnt want to be under beyonce shadow that understandable…look at kelly rowland the first thing that comes out of people mouth is she no beyonce…she trying to establish her on self in the music…i like the interview

  16. creig moore August 27, 2008

    that was just not so smart Solange… even if they had done anything unprofessional, you shouldn´t have mentioned it and perhaps mention it off-camera, now you created a look that probably isnt even who you are….or are you that chick?? hAHA

    Cause I do remember this one time…. I was at a Destinys Child concert here in Rotterdam(survivor era) and in the pre show you came and sat down before the audience to check out the group performing, you werent even that known at that time, but some fans next to us recognized you and tried to take a picture and you just covered your face and ran away,,, im sorry but that was just weird, you should have been happy that someone abroad recognized you.

    But hell you put out a good album so I´ll keep supporting you , but watch out with the attitude..

    Actually the beginning of the interview which was not shown is them talking about Beyonce and her marriage to Jay-Z and she was offended because the interview was supposed to be about her album she didn’t know that it was aired live so she responded as politely as possible..Beyonce’s marriage and her choice to be private about it has nothing to do with Solange and her album…Usually when on an interview a publicist gives reporter a guide line as to what topics are off limits and needless to say that one is…Whether you agree with Beyonce and Jay-Z being private about their marriage either way that’s Beyonce and Jay-Z business for a Beyonce or Jay-Z interview this was supposed to be a Solange interview about her new album which just came out and is GREAT!!! by the way…

  18. James August 27, 2008

    In the end, it’s promotion. A professional knows the right way to promote themselves and their product. It’s very difficult to recover once you’ve set a negative tone from the very beginning. Many will leave that interview thinking “wow, what attitude”. You want to leave them thinking “I need to check out that CD.” She did the wrong thing…and this is coming from someone who is a fan. My website promotes underrated music. Solange, in my opinion, is indeed underrated. http://www.MeLikeGoodMusic.com

    I know it sucks for Solange to be compared to Beyonce all the time, but that’s the reality girl!! That will always be there Solange. So u better get used to it.

    Solange needs an attitude adjustment!! She ain’t all that to have an ego like that.

    However, she has a great personality and best of luck to u girl!!

    i felt like she needs to sit her self down ppl will compare you… get over it!! there is a diference between being real and being rude that my friend was rude sit down

  22. Shae Mechelle August 27, 2008

    this is DUMB! Nobody would give her an ounce of attention if it wasn’t for B. Mike paved the way for Janet and in time Janet made a name for herself but it was def. not by catching attitudes with reporters who are only asking the questions the big heads at the companies are telling them 2 ask for ratings. So if she has a problem, take that shyt up w/ the Director or whoever of the company you are interviewing with. This wasn’t TMZ hiding behind a garbage can for the perfect time 2 bombard her, this was a PROFESSIONAL organization. That reporter was nice 2 apologize, i would have said B please!

  25. Riley August 27, 2008

    Solange should have addressed the matter after the interview was over. Being Beyonce’s younger sister will always have people comparing them. She knows that. She came off rude and the reporter apologizing and being respectful made her look even worst.

  26. Bambi August 27, 2008

    Wow, that was MEAN, and I like Solo!

  27. Anonymous August 27, 2008

    Yall dont know what was said before that and its not like she snapped her fingers and rolled her eyes she just plainly said that was not prfessional dang yall act like she cussed someone out. yall know how solo is if there is something that doesnt sit right wit her she gon say something…hence “F@$k the industry”

  28. Anonymous August 27, 2008

    It dosen’t matter what was said before. The professional thing to do was to address it off the air. Don’t make no excuses for her, everytime I have seen her interview she has an attitude. She not keeping real, she a fake and it was all apart of her marketing plan for her album to get people talking and maybe interested in buying. Sorry i’m not interested.

    sOLO IS AN IDIOT, DIVORCED, TEEN MOM, NO MAN, SLEEPING WITH WEEZY DOING DRUGS SHE IS A WALKING issue. Go get tested solo and yeah go back to school, you have no class, I stole that from fat albert.. This chick is a joke!!!

  30. TheHypeFactor.com August 27, 2008

    Wonder where she gets that attitude…

  31. Stephy August 27, 2008

    All the hate is not needed as soon as she slips up people jump on her. No one is perfect and most of us on this site would of done the same thing. You guys act like she has to smile all the time and never do bad and hide her faults, she is not her sister and she is a person.

    I feel for Solo because my sis used to get attention over me and sometimes it just makes you want to snap. Its not like she hates her sister but this is her album out they live two different lives. They don’t ask beyonce about Solange!!!! So there you go.

    Getting the album still love her!

    Very unprofessional. Whether or not she has a point, there’s a CORRECT way to go about things and maintain a good image, especially if you have a record you are trying to promote. This just did not make her look good at all…at least the reporter held it together and was professional. Dang…disappointing. Maybe she should go about saying those things and clearing the air PRIOR to any interviews she does and then if they do it, then talk to folks. (shaking my head)

  35. Miranda Priestly @ Runaway Mag August 27, 2008

    ^ I agree… It was definitely important to address the issue, but that definitely should have been handled off air, out of the public eye, before the interview began. The Misunderstanding could have been cleared up before they were on air so that the interview wouldn’t have been as akward.

    what an awful introduction the interviewer gave though, talking about the simpson family and then beyonce ????
    very very unecessary, solange is a very talented music artist and these pointless comparisons really need to stop

  39. Anonymous August 27, 2008

    Whoever said about seeing the whole interview didn’t look at the clip. People are always compared regardless of a family member or not so she really needs to get in check and realise that without her sister some of those doors would not have opened and that also doesn’t guarantee instant success. That is the kind of attitude you (try) have once you are established, not after one flop album and a trying to promote the new one, what made it worse is that she made no effort to apologise for her attitude to the misunderstood comment said off air after the interviewer apologised more than once.

  40. Anonymous August 27, 2008

    Well lets not forget this isn't the first time this chick has a huge attitude problem and you can tell by the way she talk that she is stank she that chick if you stare at her she would give that snap snap attitude she have that bird attitude

    I was watching 106 & park and she was joking on how cee-lo talk and terreance ask her to do it again she was like no in that attitude voice LMAO

    And she is hosting this thing on Vh1 soul summer something while interviewing artist she was rude asking questions

    The thing is i know that beyonce act the same way too but was program aka robot her way during interviews

    Cause lmao i know ya saw that early destiny child interview when beyonce was being a b**** rolling her eyes

    STOP THE FAKENESS LOL

  41. Anonymous August 27, 2008

    you guys need to take into consideration of wat was said and also that solo thought that they were already on air. If a reporter says something rude then an artist has a right to defend themselves people have always brought bee into solos interveiws nd I don’t think she really cares so its not about her being compared to bee that reporter must hav said something very rude to make solo go off like that especially while she thought that the reporter said it live on- air. But its watever,… like she said she’ll never be picture perfect beyonce.

ALSO THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO FOLLOW CERTAIN GUIDELINES. NOTHING IS WRONG FOR CHECKING ANYONE SHE DIDN’T CURSE SHE JUST SAID IN A POLITE BUT NASTY WAY SHE FELT HER INTRODUCTION WASN’T PROFESSIONAL AND IF THAT’S HOW SHE FELT THEN IT’S GOOD SHE STOOD UP FOR HERSELF THAT B**** AS SOMEONE ELSE PUT IT HAS SOLD MORE ALBUMS THAN ANY OF US KEEP IN MIND THAT FIRST ALBUM IS A FEW TIMES PLATINUM WITH MORE THAN 900,000 PLUS BEING PURCHASED IN HER HOME STATE ALONE. SHE IS ONLY HUMAN MAYBE IF MORE PEOPLE SHOWED THEIR HUMAN SIDE IT WOULDNT BE A PROBLEM WHEN WE FIND OUT THEY ARENT PERFECT. THINK ABOUT IT. (OH I WOULD’VE CHECKED THEIR ASSES ALSO MAYBE THEY WILL THINK TWICE ABOUT WHAT THEY SAY IN EAR AND THEN ON AIR BECAUSE TO SEPERATE THINGS SHOULDNT BE SAID IN THE FIRST PLACE)

    HER CHILD BECAUSE SHE WON’T LAST AS A SINGER WITH THAT NASTY ATTITUDE SHE HAS, SHE CAME ARCROSS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL NOT THE WOMAN

  46. gawd4you August 28, 2008

    Ok well she put the interviewer in check but i dont see where it was a problem i mean obviously something was said before hand. I like her blunt directness and yall here on this post really need to check it. Beyonce her sister has the worst attitude ever and B**** would be and understatement for her ive seen a few of her candid remarks before her staff and company snatched everything away from public view. The bottom line is this is solange second album the comparison between sisters should be done and over with they have a totally different sound. shes trying to do her own thing and simply wants to be respected as and individual. I give her a heads up f*** these reporters and what they want the public to think. Her album is hot shes hot and i wish her the best.

  47. Christian August 28, 2008

    “She`s only human. She isn`t perfect. People make mistakes.” Blah, blah, blah. All of that is a bunch of B*******. Simple as that. Just because she`s human doesn`t mean she has to be rude. Now you know DAMN WELL if it was some regular chick talkin` slick like that in the streets most of you would have whooped her ass. I don`t care WHO she`s related to. There is NO excuse to be rude — ESPECIALLY on LIVE television. I understand that it can be frustrating as HELL to be constantly compared to Beyonce. But she should have KNOWN that s*** beforehand. I`m not gonna defend her for the simple fact that she KNOWS everyone is gonna compare her to Beyonce. She needs to suck it up and get the hell over it. She needs to use those comparisons as a STEPPING STONE to NOT be like Beyonce. Not throw a ghetto tantrum at the reporter who is only doing HER job.

    Now, homegirl has mad talent. If she doesn`t wanna get shelved like her last album, she needs to get that stank attitude in check. -SMDH-

    That was highly unprofessional. Take a note from your sister, sweety. How many times was Beyonce asked about the “former members of destiny’s child” and about her love life, etc. Beyonce (who we know isn’t always innocent) remains professional in interviews.

    Janet Jackson and Ashlee Simpson have NEVER been bitchy in such a way Solange has. It’s sad; her cd is good to the point where she shouldnt NEED to be so defensive.

  53. Anonymous August 28, 2008

    well homegirl, it wasnt very professional of you to bring that ish up in a live interview. wait till recordings over, then voice your concerns afterwards. who does this broad think she is? real? real don mean u gotta be a b****.

  56. AaronMichael August 28, 2008

    What she did was wrong…regardless to what was said prior, what we saw and her was her. There is a way in which you conduct yourself and handle situations like that and coppin an atitude live on air only distracts from the point of her being on there in the first place. If you are there to promote your album, promote your album. Then get up in their grill when the segment is over. You see how no one is talking about the album now and focusing on how she conducted herself. A true professional would have recognized that from the start and sold that album to no end.

  57. Cee August 28, 2008

    Maybe her manager should prepare her better next time. If you have a good manager that does their job, you will know what questions the interviewer is going to ask you prior to the interview. You have a list of topics that are on/off limits. This is not new stuff people. Aside from that, Solange made herself look bad with her negative response. It’s not how you want to be viewed in one of your interviews to promote your first album. People who do not know who she is are not going to do background on the interview to see who was right or wrong. They’re just not going to buy the album.

  58. Anonymous August 30, 2008

    “Her behaviour was a bit unprofessional but I don’t blame her. She must be sick of the constant Beyonce references.”

    Don’t you think Janet feels that way about being compared to Michael? Ashlee, to Jessica? I am now a HUGE Sol fan–her album is amazing!–but if she’s gonna act like this I might not like her as a person. Janet and Ashlee are never b****** on TV about stuff like this. I hope I’m wrong about Solange, though. She seems really smart and down to earth.

  59. yy5705 September 10, 2008

    She should have been gracious, warm, and unassuming, just like her big sister. Whenever you hear people who have met and interviewed Beyonce, they talk about how down to earth and un-Diva like she is. If you know who you are, you don’t have to act like a jerk! Shame on little sister.
