Solange’s new album ‘A Seat at the Table’ debuted on Sunday, the video features the 30-year-old songstress surrounded by groups of men and women dancing and sporting their various hairstyles.
Britain’s Evening Standard has learned the hard way not to touch Solange Knowles’ hair.
In a statement issued Saturday, the newspaper apologized to the singer for digitally removing the vertical braided crown she wore for the cover of its weekly magazine, saying it was done for layout purposes. (Showing the entire crown would have meant showing less of her dress and shoulders.)
Here is the original shot:
Knowles posted the picture to her Instagram Friday, calling out the newspaper in the caption with “dtmh,” an abbreviation for “don’t touch my hair.”
The circle above her head was edited out digitally in the final photo, seen on the right below:
“Plainly, we made the wrong call,” the editors wrote, “and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange.”
The magazine article featured the singer talking about her experiences spending time at her mother’s salon as a child. She also discussed braiding’s importance to her and praised it as “its own art form.”
