Solange New Haircut: The Bald Or The Beautiful?July 24th, 2009 - 10:45 pm ICT by GD
Yet another celebrity seems to have joined the ranks of the bizarre fashion statement-makers with her evidently way over-the-top new look. Solange Knowles, Beyonce Knowles’ relatively lesser known but much sympathized-with sister, has decided to completely do away with all her hair.
Though popularity of the dimensions of that enjoyed by her lot-more-famous sibling has almost always eluded her, Solange has always garnered public sympathy for her plight of being the underdog to a decided diva of a sister. However, her new way to lash back, at the expense of her own appearance, apparently doesn’t seem to have evinced as much of a public support.
Glimpses of her on the town in her new shorn persona evidently hasn’t gone down well with netizens, who have embarked on a frenzied polling spree to pass verdict against the new do, or lack of it.
The long suffering Solange, who has forever been dogged by irksome comparisons to her more successful sibling, had once been known to make a statement saying that she would “go crazy like Britney” if the comparisons persisted. Evidently she has made good on her threat, with the net community being of the popular opinion, that Solange is now channeling her inner Britney Spears.
Of course there are always the chronically mean nay-sayers, who believe that the recently tonsured scalp maybe nothing more than a gimmick to draw some much-needed attention to the otherwise largely neglected celebrity. Emphatically dismissing the possible merit of low-maintenance that the new do could offer, critics are of the belief that publicity stunt rather than fashion statement is the more probable explanation behind the bold…oops…bald move.
