Solange Defends Sister Against Pregnancy Rumors
By now, you must know that Solange is not one to be messed with. (Do you remember when she popped off on that anchorwoman during an interview?) Not only will she not tolerate any foolishness directed towards her, she does not want you talking trash about her sister either. Recently, she took to Twitter to defend her sister against some of the ugly rumors surrounding her pregnancy, labor and even the birth and name of her daughter Blue Ivy.
Here’s what she had to say:
It has really gotten out of hand. I’ve been doing my best at keeping my mouth shut….but the ignorance is really sad and upsetting.
We are supposed to be super human and watch people we love get slandered, lied on, and ridiculed. It is one of THE hardest things to accept.
In any other workplace…if someone directly tells your mother or sister is a liar and a fake ect…you would naturally express yourself.
However, the pure happiness and joy I’ve witnessed and experienced helps me to keep my mouth shut.
Well, I’m with her when she’s right.
Some of the rumors and the downright nasty things people have said about not only Beyonce but her child are way out of line. And while Beyonce, Jay-Z and sadly their daughter are all public figures, it still must suck, as a sister, to listen to all of it and hold your tongue just because you’re in the limelight. Because for real, if someone said that the name of my sister’s newborn child was somehow affiliated with the devil, or that she lied about her pregnancy (after she had a miscarriage), or that she prevented other parents from seeing their own children I would rightly be enraged. I understand completely.
In this world we live in today the constant “exposure” to stars makes us somehow believe that we can say all types of reckless things about them, knowing that 1. They don’t know we exist and 2. That, most likely, they won’t take the time to defend themselves. (Notice, I did say we. If we’re honest, we can admit that most of us have engaged in the celeb bash fest or two.) Well now we know, that even if Beyonce won’t dignify some of the tomfoolery, Solange will surely go in.
I just hope Beyonce is either not reading any of this or she’s not taking it to heart. Knowing that all of these things are being said about you and now your child has to weigh heavily on the soul and that’s not good for the baby.
What do you think about Solange’s tweets? Was she justified or should she have waited until all the chatter died down?
