Dear Solange, 21. we met on a conference call and I thought you were high but later realized you were just a slow ass talker 22. We ate mad sushi and became sisters 23. I drove the getaway car for Keisha crazy. 24. Julez became my heart. 25 You threatened to leave LA. 26 you broke my heart and actually left LA. also we made one of the best pieces of art I've ever made in South Africa, so that made up for the move. 27 introduced me to the beauty of Nola and I caught 2 cocunuts at Zulu. 28 you married your soul mate and literally threw the best celebration of history. 29 we danced through those Havana streets as people threw buckets of cleansing water on us from their windows on New Years. But really it was just tap water... 30 you made it! And I no longer have to hear your insane theories about dying in your twenties. I don't like those at all... All that to say thank you for coming into my life and sharing this past decade with me. I love you from that treehouse in Sweden to the White Sands of New Mexico. You are my soul sister, my sanity, the other pea in this pod. Happy mothafuckin birthday Solo!!! I can't wait to spend the next decade talking revolutions, throwing shade, and leaving footprints round the world!!!

Beyonce was just in our area, playing around on the dunes of White Sands right before her surprise performance at the 2016 BET Awards.

Solange, Beyonce's younger sister and the nemesis to Jay-Z turned the big 3-0 over the weekend and celebrated in a non celeb way. Being low key and not about that glitzy glam lifestyle like Bey, opted out to head out to a small ranch in San Patricio, New Mexico where they enjoyed dinner and some swimming then made their way out to White Sands National Monument to play in the sand.

Wouldn't doubt it was a photo shoot op as well seeing as her whole party was wearing matching orange-red gowns. Bey, of course was around for it but had to soon jet off to the BET Awards where she performed her new anthem "Freedom" with Kendrick Lamar.
