Beyonce was overlooked in favour of Adele for the night's most prestigious award, Album of the Year
The Grammys were full of controversy this year - from Adele's re-do of her George Michael tribute to Rihanna taking her own hip flask to the awards, the ceremony was not short of a raised eyebrow or two. But eyebrows were raised no higher than when Adele’s 25 beat Beyoncé’s Lemonade in the Album of the Year category with Adele herself saying she couldn’t accept the award.

Having been the toast of the music world in 2016 with her album A Seat At The Table, Solange Knowles has been interviewed by a journalist who arguably knows her better than anyone else – her older sister Beyonce!

The 49-year-old music producer, who collaborated with the 30-year-old singer on her latest LP 'A Seat At The Table', believes Beyoncé's younger sister's presence on the music scene has been long overdue.

The singer dropped her third record at the end of September.
Solange Knowles has landed her first ever number one with her latest album release 'A Seat at the Table'. She dropped the surprise third album on September 30th 3016 through Columbia and her own imprint Saint Records, and now finds herself competing with elder sister Beyonce.
Solange Knowles reaches number one for the first time
The 30-year-old sibling of Queen Bey has topped the Billboard 200 Album chart for the first time since launching her music career. She's also reached number 17 in the UK charts. The 21-song record is her first full-length in eight years, and she's been working on it since 2013. Some songs were even written as far back as 8 years ago.
Solange’s third album ‘A Seat at the Table’ has been compared to Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’.
Both albums are politically charged and touch on issues of race and culture, but Solange says critics shouldn't be surprised at the similar themes, as both artists grew up in the same household.

The sister of Beyonce says she was abused by a group of women during a concert in New Orleans.
Solange Knowles has penned an essay on race and being a minority in predominately white spaces, after her recent experiences at a Kraftwerk gig. Knowles had previously tweeted about being told to “sit down” by a group of women during the concert, but the singer has now given a full account of the evening and how it made her feel.
Solange Knowles has penned an essay on race after her experiences at a Kraftwerk concert
Knowles wrote that while dancing she heard a group of women yelling “Sit down now, you need to sit down right now”, aggressively at her from the box behind. “You want to be considerate, however, they were not at all considerate with their tone, their choice of words, or the fact that you just walked in and seem to be enjoying yourself,” Knowles wrote.
A reward is being offered for its safe return.
Losing something as precious and sentimental as a wedding ring has got to be one of the worst feelings ever, but Beyonce's little sis Solange Knowles is putting on a brave face on as she listens out for news of her own missing ring, for which she has offered a reward if found.
No sign of Solange's missing wedding ring...
She was taking part in a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans, as an honorary Muse in the all-female collective the Krewe of Muses. Bedecked in green and blue and wearing a crown of the same colours, the singer must've got a little too energetic during the celebrations because her precious wedding ring slipped off her finger into oblivion while sailing down St. Charles Avenue on Thursday (February 5th 2016).

The couple eased into the wedding weekend, heading down to the Indywood Cinema to catch Mahogany starring Diana Ross. Bey was reportedly spotted heading into the theatre on her own.

Will Beyoncé divorce Jay Z after cheating with her bodyguard, Julius?
The internet is abuzz with reports that Beyoncé and Jay Z are preparing to divorce after the rumor that the R&B singer had been cheating on her rapper husband emerged in the wake of the now-infamous post-Met Gala elevator fight. Sources have indicated to Star Magazine that the 'Halo' singer and Julius de Boer, her bodyguard, have been having a long-term affair and that Jay Z's suspicions were alerted long ago. We must make it clear that Star magazine don't exactly have a glowing record of accurate exclusives.
"Jay definitely thinks that there was and may still be something romantic going on between Bey and Julius," a source told the publication. "He wanted to fire Julius last February, but Beyoncé said, 'Julius isn't going anywhere.'"
"They've spent a lot of time together behind closed doors," the insider continued. "He's even stayed in her hotel room." Rumors of a secret relationship between Bey and Julius first arose back in 2009 when the pair were snapped leaving a hotel in Berlin. In the photo Beyoncé's mouth is strangely covered by her hand whilst Julius mouth is allegedly covered in red lipstick.

Shocking elevator footage shows Solange trying to batter her brother-in-law.
Solange Knowles' relationship with her brother-in-law Jay Z has become the subject of intense public scrutiny today as yet another celebrity family's dirty laundry was aired for the entire world to see. Well, sort of: the soul singer set upon the rapper and husband to her sister Beyoncé behind what she thought were the closed doors of an elevator whilst descending from a post-Met Gala soiree.
After A Night At The Met Gala, Jay Z Was Attacked By Beyoncé's Sister, Solange.
The footage shows the 27 year-old mother-of-one lashing out at Jay Z with both her arms and legs as the group's bodyguard attempts to pull her away. Jay Z doesn't make any move to hit back at Solange, rather he pushes her legs away from his chest when she aims high with a stiletto-footed kick. Solange's limbs reach their target on more than one occasion, prompting the bodyguard to hit what looks like the emergency stop button to prevent the scene spilling out in front of the waiting paps.
Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Arcade Fire bring life to New Orleans Jazz Festival 2014.
It's that time of year again where New Orleans go all out to prove they are one of the most culturally rich cities in North America with their annual two-weekend event, the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
The Jazz Festival has expanded to two long weekends since its inaugural year in 1970, meaning that more people than ever can get the chance to enjoy the fine music culture of Louisiana. The Queen of Gospel Mahalia Jackson appeared at the first event alongside renowned orchestral composer Duke Ellington, and from then on the festival has gone from strength to strength and has never once lost the spirit that has made it so loved.
It was a family affair for Solange and Beyonce Knowles at Coachella 2014.

Beyonce and Solange weren't there. Just busy, said Matthew Knowles.
Matthew Knowles, the father and former manager of Beyonce and Solange Knowles, got married last Sunday, unfortunately without either of his daughters in attendance. TMZ reports that Knowles excused Solange and Beyonce’s absence with their packed schedules, saying: , "Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend."
Bey is a busy, busy woman these days.
Matthew married Gena Avery in a private ceremony in Houston, Texas, after being engaged to her for a year and a half. This is his second marriage, the first one being to Tina Knowles, aka Beyonce and Solange’s mother. The marriage ended in 2011 – the same year that Beyonce ended her professional relationship with Matthew. Knowles had been managing his daughter’s career since the Destiny’s Child days. However, back then he maintained that there were no hard feelings between the two of them. Beyonce confirmed this to Us Weekly, saying: "I've only parted ways with my father on a business level," Beyonce said. "He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina Knowles] manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."

We pick the hottest acts and the dig through the underground hype for you, the reader...
As the annual South by Southwest festival heats up over there in Austin, Texas, we’ve cast a jealous eye over the line-up and picked out five of some of the bigger names that you really should start queuing nice and early for and thrown in five hype bands for you, too, so you can get all hip with your friends, upon your return and start laying down all those “saw them first lines,” when they blow up next year.
First up, the acts that have already broken, that you really need to check out, or at least pretend that you did, if you were stuck in that queue for BBQ wings…
1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – their ‘Thrift Shop’ song really blew up, especially online, where they challenged Carly Rae Jepsen’s chart record for ‘Call Me Maybe.’ No one can predict whether or not Macklemore’s going to be a one hit wonder or whether he’s got more up his sleeve, he’s known for putting on a good show, and all six of their shows are likely to be rammed.
Solange Knowles has returned to the pop scene. She might be better known as the younger sister of Beyonce Knowles but with ‘Losing You,’ Solange could finally prove that she’s a talented artist in her own right, with no need to live in her sister’s shadow. It’s been four years since Solange released her second album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, which may have been well-received but failed to get her a foothold on her career ladder in the music industry.
‘Losing You’ is produced by Blood Orange’s Devonté Hynes, according to LA Times and it’s a neat laid-back modern R&B song, with just enough swagger to get her personality across, but just enough retro groove to set it apart from most mainstream R&B tracks. It’s simultaneously downbeat and uplifting and the video really captures her spirit as she cycles around Cape Town, South Africa. The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas; she’s worked with Solange before, on 2008’s ‘I Decided.’
The track, which features the lyrics “I’m not the one that you should be making your enemy, tell me the truth, boy, am I losing you for good,” will be released by Terrible Records, which is run by Chris Taylor of the band Grizzly Bear. The B-side will be ‘Sleep in the Park,’ which will feature Kevin Barnes, of the band Of Montreal. Both tracks are taken from her as-yet-untitled album, which is expected to be released some time in 2013.
