Here are some promo pics of “Sol-Angel” in some geek goggles and metallic dress, as well as photos from her performance at the House of Blues. She’s definitely trying to step outside of her sister’s shadow with that ‘free-spirited’ steez. Good for her. She also did an interview with Parlour Magazine:
P: You’ve already been married, divorced and become a mother, do you think those experiences have helped or hurt you?
S: It helps. People expect women, especially in R&B, to be very prim and proper and this sort of model. The artists with the best albums have been inspired by situations of pain and growth. I’ve definitely been through a lot in the past few years, so I’m very proud to say that I’ve matured. A marriage, a divorce and having a baby will do that to you.
P: How do you deal with the comparisons to Beyonce?
S: At first I didn’t want to make people uncomfortable in interviews, I didn’t want to come off rude or arrogant. Now, I just really don’t care.
P: Closing words?
S: I want to do things on my own terms and only want to do media where people respect the art form and understand what being an artist is about, without talking about irrelevant things. Those are the outlets I want to be a part of, but right now I have to play the game. I still have challenges because some people feel you only have one shot. But I’m going to continue to make music, no one’s going to tell me this is my last shot.
Well, at least she already got paper, some folks, on the other hand, have to stay grindin regardless.
