Perhaps taking a page out of Beyoncé’s P.R. playbook, Solange appears to have laid down an Instagram shutdown of her own, posting a Throwback Thursdy photo of her and her big sis from back in the day. While carbon-dating technology has yet to cross over to the ’Gram, those poofy sleeves and that mix of crushed velvet and tartan fabrics makes me wanna say … 1990? Maybe ’91?
While the “Losing You” singer left the picture captionless (save for a #tbt hashtag variant, “#tt”), it’s hard not to speculate that it’s at least partially a response to the controversy surrounding that leaked elevator video, which shows Solange fighting with brother-in-law Jay Z. Knowles sister solidarity perhaps?
On a lighter note, the 27-year-old artist Instagrammed another throwback photo of her and Beyoncé sitting down together as noted thong enthusiast Sisqo serenades them with his guitar. Anyone else having middle-school fantasy hot flashes right now? Not just me? Cool.
In the caption, Solange shouts out one of her throwback beauty secrets: the donut sock. She also hints that she’ll delete the picture tomorrow (“and it’s not because I don’t love sisqo’s awesome guitar”), but I kinda feel like she’s making fun of that whole “SOLANGE DELETED ALL HER INSTAGRAMS OMFG” headline that swept through the gossip mill earlier this week.
Either way, I think we can all agree that these are some ridiculously cute photos and just leave it at that.
