Solange co-signs Frank Ocean's comments yesterday.
Solange Knowles was definitely feeling some type of way after her older sister, Beyonce, lost to Adele for “Album Of The Year” award last night at the Grammy’s. Following the show, Solange took to twitter to retweet a link that Frank Ocean shared on his Tumblr page over the weekend, criticizing the shows producer Ken Ehrlich and writer David Wild for giving the top honor to the wrong winner. (Frank was upset Taylor Swift’s 1989 beat Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly last year for “AOTY”.)
Nonetheless, Solange tweeted "wuddup frank," along with the link to his comments yesterday. However, she has since deleted the tweet (see below).
Solange then later tweeted (incorrectly mind you) that only two black artists have won Album of the Year within the last two decades, while over 200 black artists have performed. She also urged others to "build their own institutions," and to award themselves.
Unfortunately, both of those tweets have since been deleted as well, but of course some screen shots were caught by fans beforehand. Peep Solange’s now-deleted tweets (below).
#Solange (who won her first Grammy last night for #CranesInTheSky) speaks on the history of the #Grammys and black artists. Some are taking it as a snub after her sis #Beyonce did not win Album of the Year - which many of us - including #Adele (who ended up winning) - felt she should have. Double tap if u agree with Solange. She has since deleted the tweets Follow us @hamptonblunetwork
