Open Letter to Solange - Tia
Dear Solange,

First let me say that I love your Hadley Street cd. I think it is LEAPS AND BOUNDS better than anything your sister has recently put out. (Close your mouths people. Unless you've actually heard Solange's cd AND you actually prefer music to "tracks" you are not allowed to be shocked, put-off or offended.)

But I'm not writing to talk about your music. I'm writing to talk about your hair. I would like to take this opportunity to say that you should (a la Smokey from Friday) never, ever, Ever, EVER ...go back to wearing weaves. Girl, your short cut is BANGING!!!!It shows off your BEAUTIFUL face. Your features are accentuated by the short hair. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on weaves. I rock one every summer because I get tired of fighting with my natural hair in the heat. Me and humidity do battle. But you...you just seemed to get lost in all that hair. When I saw the T.O.N.Y. video, I remember thinking, "Why is she wearing all that hair? It must be heavy."
Anyway, kudos for being brave enough to take the leap into short hair. And let the haters hate. What was it Kanye said..."There'll always be haters. That's the way it is. Haters marry haters and have hater kids." (I'm paraphrasing, of course.) Girl you're doing your thang and doin' WELLLLLL. Girl they're looking at you hatin' saying, "Oooooh." (Please see 'Nsync's Doing Your Thing for the reference.) Keep doing you, Boo. Cause only you can.

Sincerely,
Tia

P.S. Ummmm...when are you going to do another album? I'm just wondering.
