Rumor Control: Matthew Knowles and Juanita Bynum are ‘Strictly Professional’

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, May 26, 2010 at 2:00 pm.


After the news of Matthew Knowles’ divorce from Bey and Solange’s mom Tina and the revelation of  new baby by a woman who came out the wood works, we didn’t know what to make of the rumor that Papa K had moved on to get with yet another woman, televangelist Juanita BynumToday, a spokesperson for Knowles has issued a statement to squash the couple chatter:

“The recent rumors of a personal relationship between Mathew Knowles and Juanita Bynum are false” the statment began. “Their relationship is strictly professional. Juanita Bynum recently signed a worldwide music management agreement with Mr. Knowles’ company Music World Entertainment that also includes a joint venture recording agreement between Music World and her record label Son Flower Records. The label venture is releasing a new single, ‘Soul Cry (Oh Oh Oh)’ on June 22 from the upcoming album The Diary of Juanita Bynum.”

So there you have it: the only music they’re making together is for the Lord. Amen and Amen.

Solange On Sandra Bullock’s Adoption, Beyonce As A Mom

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, May 6, 2010 at 12:00 am.


Although it’s rather random to ask her opinion on the matter, WonderWall caught up with Solange Knowles and asked her about Sandra Bullock’s adoption of a New Orleans baby.

What do you think of Sandra Bullock adopting a baby?

SK: I think it’s a phenomenal, beautiful thing. Kelly Rowland actually grew up with us. She moved in when she was 5 and so we have sort of a blended family. I’ve only ever looked at her as a sister. I think adoption is a beautiful thing.

When asked if she would ever consider adoption Solange said, “I would absolutely.”

And of course, they got her to talk about her sister:

Beyonce said she loves to have her nephew with her, does she give him back?

SK: Yeah, I think that’s a cool dynamic but I’m sure one day soon she’ll want one of her own.

What would make her such a great mom?

SK: I think she just has one of the most beautiful hearts that I’ve ever experience in life. She’s just a very kind hearted and patient person.

Here We Go Again! Beyonce Pregnancy Rumors Resurface

Published by Dior Noir on Friday, March 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm.


Oh baby! The buzz is back that your favorite Honey B is with child.

The Internet went crazy with reports yesterday when several outlets started picking up an “exclusive” from MediaTakout who claims they heard from a “rock solid source that legendary singer Beyonce and her hip hop mogul husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child together.” No further details were reported other than Bey is “resting (for now), but she’s expected to continue working throughout her pregnancy” and Jay is “extremely happy to be having his first child with Bey.”

Now if you believe every rumor on the Internet, Beyonceshould’ve had about 5 or 6 kids by now! There have been rumors that adamantly claim the star is  expecting for years. Even MediaTakeout hinted that Bey was pregnant in July 2007. So could this really be it? I don’t believe it we need more people! Of course a rep for Beyonce has already called the report “untrue.”

Why wont everyone let Beyonce and her womb be great!? Sure, it’ll be exciting news when the diva and her hubby finally do have a little one, but remember, Beyonce didn’t even publicly acknoweldge their April 2008 marriage until months after theh fact when she wore her ring for the first time at Fashion Rocks in New York September 2008. So I’ll believe a pregnancy when I actually see a baby bump. Or when Solange slips up and confirms it like she did with her sis and brother-in-laws’ nuptials, which ever comes first.

Solange: Forget Taylor Swift, My Sister Made History

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, February 3, 2010 at 11:50 am.



As most of you know Beyonce is rarely if ever included in the national news cycle.

I don’t know what the problem is, but her lack of publicity is frustrating. It’s gotten so bad that little sister Solange served up a big lash out at the media via Twitter.

Why? Because Beyonce broke a Grammy record an all people seem to want to talk about is Taylor Swift.

What’s so special about Taylor? Not a darn thing if you watched her performance this past Sunday, but the girl did win the biggest award of the night.

Still, Beyonce broke a Grammy record which means journalists out there need to kiss the ring not salute the newbie.

Or something.

In all seriousness, though, while I have seen some articles make it seem as if Taylor Swift won every single award that night I’ve also seen plenty that acknowledge Beyonce’s record-breaking Grammy night.

Now if I were Solange I’d remind her of the last person who spoke out against Taylor in defense of Bey and where that got them. It’s a sweet gesture to speak up for your sister, but I beg you, Solo please don’t give the world yet another reason to feel sympathy for “poor” Taylor.

Solange Shacking Up With Wale?

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 12:00 am.


Is Solange ready to jump the broom for the second time around?

I believe that as much as I do in the tooth fairy, but that’s the word going around.

Via MTO:

According to one of’s snitches, Solange Knowles and her boyfriend rapper Wale have been out in Brooklyn together or the past few weeks looking for a place.

According to’s impeccable source, Solange is looking to rent an apartment in Brooklyn – and Wale’s been at every appointment so far.

If you recall Solange has already denied that she’s dating Wale. While I suppose one could say that remains to be seen MTO is really trying it with their “impeccable source,”  huh?

I bet this same impeccable source could see Solange hug someone with long hair and swear that Solange just made a deal to scalp the girl for a new sew in.

Solange On Using Clippers & Coupling Up

Published by Runteldat on Monday, October 5, 2009 at 11:50 am.


It’s amazing what a haircut can do for one’s career. If the rise of Amber Rose didn’t convince you of it, Solange making it all the way to The Oprah Winfrey Show to talk about her new fade has made the power of the clipper obvious.

In a new spread in Honey magazine, Solange talked about the flack she’s received for giving her scalp the Barbara Jordan treatment.

To ya’ll who like it when she puts a remy on it:

Do you even care? Does it bother you at all?

Obviously not (laughs). I knew what the reaction would be before it happened.  I’ve always been in-tune with what physically and emotionally makes me happy. I was that little girl that wanted to wear the tutu and tap shoes as my nanny is sitting next to me shaking her head ‘Yes, yes.’ All through high school I got made fun of because of what I wore and what music I listened to, so this is just junior high for me all over again. I don’t care, and I don’t think I ever will because at the end of the day, these are not the people who are going to be there to change a flat tire or who help you in ways that you really need it. This is a really fickle and materialistic and narcissistic industry. I try not to put too much into that because it will eat you alive. The people that I love and that I really care about — their opinions matter. Those are the people that have nothing but positive things to say.

Oh and for those of you who have noticed the friendly tweets between her and Wale – she’s denying they’re a couple, telling Honey:

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…

There you have it. Cheers for the fade, jeers to the couple rumors.

Bow Wow doesn’t like girls with short hair

Published by Runteldat on Friday, July 24, 2009 at 11:50 am.


Can someone pass around a memo to these celebrities that not all of us are victims of home schooling?

Yesterday pictures of Solange rocking a Florida Evans inspired hair cut hit the ‘net.

Hours later, Bow Wow tweeted the following:

F*** wrong wit all deez chix cuttn they hair wantn to be boyz n shit! yall gotta CUT that out! dnt wanna look at u and u lookn like me gnr

as artist aint we pose 2 stand out from 1 anotha and be creative? so y err female rnb singer falln behind the next wit dis bald s–t?

Ladies if you gon shave ya head atleast my barber Bobby world give u dat tite a– hairline LOL! Stop joccin Amber not cute.

I must be getting old because I nearly went blind trying to decode that.

Anyway, we see a new photo of Solange’s hair cut. Hours later, Bow Wow tweets about a girl with a hair cut and accuses that person of trying to swagger jack Amber Rose.

Who else could he have been talking about?

As for the comments themselves, this is the same person whose lyrics have been mainly penned by Da Brat and Jermaine Dupri over the years and currently trying to rhyme like the child of Lil’ Wayne and T.I.

Why won’t he let Solange and her barber be great, ya’ll?

P.S. You can’t talk about people “going through something” when you just tweeted about problems yourself.

Solange Will Fox News You Over Beyonce

Published by Runteldat on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 12:50 am.


Over the past year Solange has managed to carve quite a niche for herself outside of big sister’s shadow. She has a growing staple of fans in her own right, though there are some whose affinity for Solange is rooted in the notion that she’s the antithesis to her sister.

Well, never one to mince words, following the leak of Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams,” video, Solange hit back at those who sent tweets talking slick about her kinfolk.

She tweeted:

“Sick of people thinking I’m gonna be my sisters enemy. Now that was the “nice” read. Next person who hits me with some negative energy about my sister is gonna get Fox news all over again. Don’t try to love ME because you want to be the “anti Beyonce”. I am the ‘all for’ Beyonce. Now kiss both of our Knowles asses if you don’t like it!”

And there you have it. Stop trying to pit that girl against her own sister because you’re wack enough to dislike Queen Bey.

Don’t Put Mat’s Name on Kelly’s Birth Certificate

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, April 9, 2009 at 12:00 pm.


Contributor: Runteldat

Rumors that Mathew Knowles continues to sabotage secret daughter Kelly Rowland’s career have officially been denied by both Papa Mat and his alleged evil daughter, Solange.

It seems reports that Solange was given her walking papers from label Geffen over paltry record sales may have been a bit premature. Same goes for the story that Mathew intercepted a potential new solo deal at Epic for Kelly in favor of Solange.

Although I would have preferred watching him do the stanky legg after Maury Povich tells him that his sperm did not help create Kelly, Mathew decided to deny paternity via a prepared statement:

“Our joint venture with Music World and Interscope/Geffen/A&M is very much in place for Solange. We are currently experiencing success at video outlets and radio with the current single ‘T.O.N.Y’ co-written by Cee-Lo of Gnarls Barkly and Solange. Cee-Lo and Kid Cudi also appear in the video. 

It’s very disappointing in recent days the amount of false statements in the marketplace from Solange being drop to me [being] accused of being Kelly Rowland’s father.”

Solange, evidently still not a fan of media training also responded, tweeting: “stooopiddd iddddiots. rumor control for the day:) I was NOT released from Geffen/Interscope… now back to your regular scheduled program:)”

I Decided She’s Talking About Her

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:01 pm.

Contributor: Runteldat

Call it a hunch, but I don’t think Solange cared for LeToya Luckett’s new video. Taking to her Twitter account – which Solange updates constantly - Knowles Two wrote these tweets:

“i remember being n Idaho 4 years ago, pulling out all my old Martha& the Vandellas, Marvelettes and Supremes records,coming up with a vision wanting to create a new age 60’s girls group and modernize it. started working on soul-angel finding 2 girls and watching old shows. this was before amy winehouse so people thought i was truly bugging out. i did i decided wiith the two girls..watched about 25 old shows of all the girl groups and asking my sis to help me come up with moves ( she had just done dreamgirls) worked my but off on references…after i did i decided alot of folks were digging it but alot of folks thought were confused about “the look” now every which a way i turn..everyone is in a 60’s girl group reference. its like traditional r&b again to do the 60’s sound, look ect.”

The reason I connected the dots was that Solange likes to update her tweet almost at the millisecond, and this rant coincidently occurred on the same day LeToya’s video for her first single, “Not Anymore” appeared online.

If I’m wrong for relating to the two (which I doubt), my bad. However, someone should remind Solange she wasn’t the first use the 60s to create a video treatment. I got four words for her: “Doo Wop (That Thing).” 

Besides, someone who once said they wanted to be the “Black Bjork” versus simply being shouldn’t speak too much on originality.
