Wale: “I Do Love Solange … Beaded Beads and All!!!”

- By Bossip Staff

Wale recently gushed about his new “FRIEND” Solange in an interview with Honeymag.com. He also gave his thoughts on relationships, having female fans and his new album “Attention Deficit”.

Wale on relationships:
“It’s about the intangibles in 2010,” he says. “The superficial sh*t is cool – like, yeah she can f*ck, or she got a big butt. That’s the x factor. We’re not going to have sex 24/7 so we need to be friends. I want a girl who you could hijack all her extra artificial cosmetics for a week and not even notice. Somebody who’s smart and can stimulate me mentally because when you on the road it’s not like you can look at ‘em or touch ‘em. I can’t stand girls who don’t challenge their intellect. It don’t hurt if she can sing a little bit.”
On his female fans:
“I think people try too hard to market to females,” says Wale. “They insult their intelligence. I feel like there are going to be a lot of females who miss out on some great music on my album just because I wasn’t a huge radio artist.”

His Album, Attention Deficit:
This is my biography,” Wale says of Attention: Deficit, which leaked a couple of weeks before its official date. “It’s honest. Raw emotion. It’s close to me. That’s why part of me will be a little offended if it doesn’t get heard. I don’t want people to take lack of sales as me taking a hit. This is something different. My label is letting me put out an album with a single that released seven months ago. We’re not going for first week sales. We only shipping out 30,000 of them. We’re going for that grind. We’re showing people that you can build a fanbase the old fashioned way.”

Wale on Solange:
I do love her,” he admits of Solange, flashing a Cheshire. “We’re friends. She’s amazing. She’s a good person. Any single mother contributing to society the way she does — I got a lot of love for them. She’s got to do a lot on her own and raise a young black man in this day and age, so my hat goes off to her. She’s definitely an anomaly. And the way she can do that and manage to do the same things that I complain about having to do.”

His affection is as obvious as a set of flushed cheeks, and impossibly adorable. Wale, the former mixtape rapper from inner city DC, is borderline giddy. “Did you interview Solange about me?” Wale asks. He’s sprawled across his bed; head practically buried in the pillow. “Did she smile when you mentioned my name?

Did Wale just get giddy like a little school girl??? Damn… Solange Got YOU!!! Hmmm… We must admit, it was cute.

    “Contributing to society the way she does” what exactly does Solange contribute to our society? All I could think of is her relentless efforts in encouraging young black women to sell their bodies for fame, and money. Unfortunately there are ignorant people who look at Solenges satanic lifestyle and perceive her as some sort of role model who should be placed on a pedestal but the reality is she is cursed and lost and we must not look up to her.
