Solange Knowles felt disrespected by a Las Vegas news program during an interview to promote her new project Sol Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams. During the interview, she called out the anchor woman for being unprofessional, only Solange made a mistake. She was complaining about something that didn’t actually air.
During a break, her people were asked if she could speak on Jay-Z‘s 40/40 club closing down. That was denied and they were asked to keep the questions focused on the music. However, Solange thought it was on-air and kept it going as the show went on.
When the anchor woman introduced her, Solange replied by stating she was unhappy with the treatment she received.
“I have to say, that was not a very professional introduction before. Please, don’t tie me into family and my brother-in-law’s establishment.”
The anchorwoman was visibly shook by the response and even stuttered as she tried to cover up Solange‘s mistake.
“You. Um, okay. Well, we do apologize. I, I don’t. We. I don’t know if we talked about your brother-in-law’s establishment,” she noted.
Before that went on, an off-camera producer had to interrupt.
“That wasn’t live Solange. That wasn’t on TV.”
The interview went on from there as she spoke about working with Skateboard P on her new LP. No questions were asked about Beyonce or Jay and she was commended for stepping out on her own.
