Solange Gets Interviewed by Her Biggest Fan, Beyoncé
In Solange's cover story forInterviewmagazine, her older sister Beyoncé interviews her about her newest album and musical influences, revealing a deeper side of the sisters' relationship.
The two make a fitting pair for the dialogue, and not just because they're sisters. Considering Beyoncé'sLemonadeand Solange'sA Seat at the Tablereleased last year, both artists boast recent number one albums that explore black identity, racism and feminism. Their music was the perfect starting point for the conversation, which included their childhood and parents, "womanism" and "growing up in a hair salon," according to Solange.
Beyoncé, a proud big sister, did not hold back from gushing over her younger sibling. After calling her a "rock star," she added: "I'm so happy to interview you because, clearly, I'm your biggest fan and I'm super proud of you." She later added, "I remember thinking, 'My little sister is going to be something super special,' because you always seemed to know what you wanted."
And when she asked her sister about her inspirations to perform, Solange credited Beyoncé: "Growing up in a household with a master class such as yourself definitely didn't hurt." But she also gave their mother, Tina Lawson, some credit: "And, as far back as I can remember, our mother always taught us to be in control of our voice and our bodies and our work, and she showed us that through her example."
The two go on to talk about songwriting, comparisons between their father Mathew Knowles and rapper Master P, being influenced by their hometown of Houston, the now-iconic hairstyle in Solange's album cover and the "misconceptions about being a strong woman."
Plus, there are sweet sisterly moments like these:
BEYONCÉ: And, honestly, growing up, how did I do as a big sister?
SOLANGE: You did a kickass job. You were the most patient, loving, wonderful sister ever. In the 30 years that we've been together, I think we've only really, like, butted heads ... we can count on one hand.
BEYONCÉ: I was expecting something funny, but I'll take it. Thank you.
They also almost shared the funniest texts they received from their mother that week, but Beyoncé thought it was "too personal." Fair.
