See Why Solange Is Super Mad At This Magazine That Photoshopped Her

When you take into consideration the way Solange describes hair and hair braiding in the interview, as "an act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition", then you start to understand why the singer was so upset at the use of Photoshop. Check out more details about her public bashing and how her fans are supporting her.

Solange Knowles has received a formal apology from editors at newspaper Evening Standard for removing her braided crown from a magazine cover.

However, from the looks of the original photo shared by Knowles via Instagram, the periodical left one small thing out - an architectural braided crown above her head.

Solange has made her mark in the music industry over the years and with support from sister Beyonce and brother-in-law Jay-Z.

The story itself ― posted online Thursday with the headline "Solange: "I Miss Out On Chances By Wanting Control Over My Body" ― focuses heavily on the singer's autonomy and the importance she places on her imagery.

"Braiding is important to Knowles".

Following the publication of the cropped image, Solange communicated her ire by posting the original image on Instagram with the caption "dtmh" - an abbreviation of Don't Touch My Hair, which is a track which features on her 2016 album A Seat at the Table. Growing up there was pivotal. What it represents to Solange, and to other black women who braid their hair, is much deeper.

"I got to experience women arriving in one state of mind and leaving in a completely transformed way".

Sheesh, we can only imagine how popping the Evening Standard Magazine's DMs (and comments section) are right now. It was about the sisterhood and the storytelling. She also tagged the Evening Standard Magazine's Instagram handle.

And yet, what appeared as the featured image for the piece was a photo of the 31-year-old sans the braided crown she actually wore.
