Houston singer Solange Knowles put her emotions on display following a negative encounter at a Kraftwerk concert in New Orleans over the weekend.
The 30-year-old musician’s essay on her ordeal at the show was preceded by a handful of tweets that described the incident.
“4 older white women yell to me from behind, ‘Sit down now.’ I tell them I’m dancing at a concert. They yell, ‘u need to sit down now,’” Solange wrote in a tweet, which has since been deleted.
In her essay, “And Do You Belong? I Do,” she detailed the moment when her unwillingness to sit down during the show led to food being thrown at her.
“You are also confused as to what show you went to,” Solange wrote. “This is a band that were pioneers of electronic and dance music. Surely the audience is going to expect you to dance at some point. You were planning on sitting down after this song, as long as it wasn’t one of the four songs that you really connect with and plan on getting down to.”
“You feel something heavy hit you on the back of your shoulder, but consider that you are imagining things because well….certainly a stranger would not have the audacity,” she added. “Moments later, you feel something again, this time smaller, less heavy, and your son and his friend tell you those ladies just hit you with a lime.”
