Rapper Bow Wow went in on one of his former flames yesterday for cutting her hair like a dude.
Solange Knowles, sister of Beyonce Knowles, chopped off her hair about two weeks ago but wore a lacefront until a couple of days ago. She called herself making a statement about how black women put too much emphasis on their hair.
But fans and former boyfriends alike came down hard on Solange for making such a dramatic style statement without properly preparing her fans first.
Bow Wow, who once dated Solange when they were young’ns, wrote on his Twitter page:
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 shit?
Translation: “As artists, aren’t we supposed to stand out from one another and be creative? So why is it that female artists, who are struggling to stay relevant, copy other wannabe’s like Amber Rose by going bald?”
In another tweet, Bow Wow wrote:
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
“What is going on with all these young ladies today cutting their hair and carrying themselves like men? Stop that! As a man, I don’t want to look at you and see myself in your reflection.”
