It’s nice to see Solo doing her thang; On Oprah earlier this week, on Honey mag the next. The singer talks her dad, Wale and her son Juelz.
During the shoot, you said a lot of people ask about your dad and make that assumption that he’s the strict one and you said it’s really your mom who doesn’t play.
It’s interesting that people think that my dad is the one who’s all strict. They build up quite a character with that guy, and at the end of the day it’s my mom who’s going to give you the neck roll.
Well, speaking of assumptions. I think a lot of people have been zeroing in on Twitter convos between you and a certain Mr. Wale, automatically linking the two of you together. Then we see Central Park photos…
Whether we’re rooting for it or not… we just want to know.
Well, he’s definitely not my boyfriend.
Well, we can cross that off the list.
No, I just stated that he’s not my boyfriend, but we are good friends. I have worked with him in the past and I think he’s uber-talented. I think he’s really smart and really creative. And I respect his art. We have a mutual thing. We’re on the same record label and yeah…
Do you have any advice to industry moms in particular, or just young working moms who still want to be themselves?
I think balance is the essential key to motherhood. I think it’s a really hard rhythm to find, but if you learn how to capture it, it makes the rewards so beautiful. I try not to ever be away from him unless he’s with his dad. We have equal custody, so we work together on it, but it definitely gets hard when I have all these opportunities coming at me. I have to say no to a lot of things because at the end of the day I know that no matter how many awards or accolades or praise or money I get, the one thing that really is a judgment of me is what kind of mother I am. A lot of people feel like their life has to stop because of the child, and they have to let go of their interests. You definitely have to compromise some of them, but I’ve been really blessed. When I went to see Grace Jones, Julez was right there with me. Julez is right there with me when I go for my bike rides. And when I go on tour, he’s with me. And I feel so blessed to be in the position to do that.
Does he realize when he’s doing these things that Mommy’s not the average mommy — going on tour, going to do this and that.
He does now. I don’t think he realized it in the beginning, but the good thing is that he’s humble about it. If I ever see that he’s not, he will get snapped back before he can blink his eyes.

As if we didn’t see this one coming, Khloe and Lamar’s lavished wedding has made it onto the cover of Ok! magazine’s latest issue. The couple were reported paid well to do this spread, which includes lots of pictures and preparing leading up up to their September 27th wedding day.
Btw, TMZ is already reporting that Khloe and Lamar’s wedding was not real. Here’s what the site had to say.
TMZ has learned Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are not legally married … and they won’t be until a prenup is signed. We’ve learned two high-powered family law attorneys are already squaring off, trying to hash out the prenup Odom wants as a condition to marriage. Neal Hersh is doing his bidding, while Lisa Meyer is repping Khloe. We’re told the negotiations — which began last Friday — are already contentious.
Our sources say the couple will tie the knot — legally — once the prenup is inked.
Surprise, surprise…… I’ll be counting down to the day when these two break up.
It was great to see Solange and Chris talk about a topic that is still so sensitive in the black community. I will be checking Chris documentary on “Good Hair”, hope you guys will too.
