We’re not sure how we missed this one… but it makes us love Solange a lit­tle more. The singer popped back at a crit­ic who sug­gest­ed she would be a “dime piece” if she got a relax­er. Check it out:


The tweet is still up on her Twit­ter time­line and has been retweet­ed more than 2,600.

Although the nat­u­ral com­mu­ni­ty is vibrant, black wom­en at large still strug­gle to see tex­tured hair as a true alter­na­tive to relax­ers. Kudos to Solange for rec­og­niz­ing and call­ing out the igno­rance.

Oooh! This makes me wan­na re-cre­ate my twit­ter! Love this girl!


I nev­er real­ly care for Solange espe­cial­ly when she’s talk­ing about hair but I com­mend her on her come­back. Why she want to be called a dime piece, that’s not an accom­plish­ment! Kudos!


solange is straight hood. i love it.


Solange will forever favor Orlan­do Jones to me.


awe­some, but i wouldn’t waste my time reply­ing back to any car­i­ca­ture who would include the word “slut” or any of its deriv­a­tives or syn­onyms in their user­name.


Folks got nerve. I don’t fol­low celebs on twit­ter but lov­in’ her and just might have to change that rule! Ridicu­lous what peo­ple think they have the right to say about anoth­er per­son. Your opin­ion is your opin­ion but this indi­vid­u­al crossed the line and the ‘dime piece’ com­ment — com­plete­ly dis­re­spect­ful.


Dime piece? Seri­ous­ly?? This girl must have some real­ly LOW stan­dards. I guess the name “Real­Bar­bi­eS­lutz” should have tipped me off LMFAO! why look like a dime piece when you can look like a mil­lion bucks?

You can always count on Solo to put igno­rant fools back in their place! I won­der where she gets her fiery spir­it from? Her and Bey­on­ce appear to be polar oppo­sites for some rea­son! I know some folks crit­i­cize her for speak­ing freely, but it is her most appeal­ing trait to me!


I’ve been nat­u­ral since 2010 and I love it. 6 months ago is got sis­ter locks and love my nat­u­ral hair even more. I love Solange!
