Solange Knowles is looking “2 snaps” fierce in the latest issue of Rollercoaster Magazine. Inside, she dishes on her new role of being an auntie to her sister Beyonce’s baby girl, Blue Ivy. Even though she’s a mother herself, Solange reveals she will not be giving any parenting advice to Beyonce. She also dishes on loving the privacy she has, versus her sister and reaping the rewards of not being as famous.
On being an auntie to Baby Blue Ivy
It’s very different to being a mother, but there’s still that sort of magnetic bond and love that you can’t even put words on to describe.
I think babies in general are so lovable – and my sister’s baby, Blue, is so beautiful. She is really a beautiful little baby. It’s really special to have a niece because I have a son, so I get to have a little girl too
On why she’s not giving Beyonce any parenting advice
I think it’s really important for every mother to find their own way. I think it’s actually the most annoying thing when you’re a new mom and you’re getting so much advice from other mothers! You really just have to feel it out for yourself. But she’s my best friend and we talk at least every other day.
On Beyonce being her role model
She was and is such a role model, but I think more so it was an insane learning process for me to have a big sister like that – to be able to see the good, the bad and everything in between that comes with fame and success, and to know what I was getting myself into.
On enjoying her privacy
I really enjoy my privacy and being able to walk my son to school every morning and pick him up every afternoon.I know that I couldn’t do that if I was at the next level – privacy, as you know, it just doesn’t belong to you anymore. I definitely made a conscious effort to stay as low key as I can and still do what I want to do.
