Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson

Solange Knowles, Beyonce's little sister, is getting married to her much older boyfriend this weekend. Not one person I know has mentioned Solo's upcoming nuptials. Is it because no one cares?

Certainly Solange did everything right. She dated Alan Ferguson, 51, for six years. That's more than enough time to get to know the man she will wake up next to for the rest of her life. And it helps that he's a much older man; he seems to be a mature man who's done sowing his wild oats.

Solange has managed to keep her name out of the headlines after she went postal on her brother-in-law, Jay Z, 45, in a hotel elevator earlier this year.

Both Solange and her sister Beyonce had strained relationships with their father, Matthew Knowles, who pushed them to be entertainers so he could live vicariously through them.

As a result, both sisters ended up dating older men as substitutes for their father.

Solange was reportedly diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression. Beyonce has not yet been diagnosed with any mental problems.

Hopefully Solange and Alan will live happily ever after. As long as she takes her meds.

From Hellobeautiful.com:

Solange Knowles is getting married this weekend in New Orleans, US media reports. Beyoncé's younger sister will reportedly tie the knot with longtime love Alan Ferguson in a private family ceremony.

The groom is a 51-year-old video music director who has been a collaborator with the Knowles family for some time, as well as working with Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado and John Legend.

This weekend's wedding party features three days of celebration in the southern city, starting with a movie night on Friday, followed by a rehearsal dinner the next day with the ceremony itself reserved for Sunday.

      ‘Evil, abnormal beast’: FBI’s ‘suicide note’ to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. revealed 50 years later

      The disturbing missive, written as if by an anonymous, disillusioned civil rights supporter, promises to reveal King as an adulterous fraud if he doesn't kill himself in 34 days. Previously released in redacted form, this unedited version shows the extent to which then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover would go to discredit the civil rights champion.
      Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was called “an evil, abnormal beast” in an anonymous letter FBI agents sent the civil rights leader in 1964 in an effort to get him to commit suicide, a newly published, unredacted version of the note, shows.

      The disturbing missive, which details intimate knowledge of King’s extramarital affairs, was sent in the days before he was to receive the Nobel Peace Prize and is written under the guise of a civil rights supporter angry with the movement’s leader.

      A deadline of 34 days is given before King is outed as a womanizer, the missive, filled with grammatical errors, threatens.

      “You are done. There is but one way out for you. You better take it before your filthy, abnormal, fraudulent self is bared to the nation,” the one-page letter

      as for the age, i've date older - by 13yrs (didn't make him more mature) but he was healthy and physically fit :phew: so it wasn't an issue... at the time. me & Mister are the same age and i like the idea of being on track with him as far as milestones are concerned (i.e., gray hair, retirement, eye glasses, teef, etc. :rofl: )

      anyway, if it works for them that's all that matters. shew, Celine Dion's husband was already in AARP when she went to middle school and they did the darn thing! :clap: :kona:

      :cosign: I mean thats normal a lot of times though. There are always going to be sibling rivalries. Look at Jessica Simpson & Ashley Simpson. Jessca had more fame and success than Ashley. Ashley even wrote a song about it once she started singing talking about living in the shadows of of your own dream.
