Solange Knowles has a love-hate relationship with the Internet and explained why during a recent interview with blog CL’s Angel Laws.
The mother of 7-year-old Julez Smith said she deleted her Instagram account because of cyber bullies.
“Apart of me kind of turns an eye to it and then apart of me really feels like the humanization of artists has really been stripped down,” she said. “I think one of the reasons I actually went off of Instagram because I was on there for little awhile was because I would post pictures of my son or my friends and they would be criticizing.”
“My whole thing is that I’m completely fully, capable of handling negativity for myself, but to put that kind of access to negativity behind people who didn’t ask for that was really troubling to me,” she added.
She went on to shut down rumors that she will be playing the late Aaliyah in her upcoming biopic.
