The sisterhood of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles is a curious one. Normally, famous sisters have something in common other than a last name and hair color, like the Hiltons, who love to party. Often, they hang out together so that the less famous one can leech off the other's fame, like the Lohans. But not Solange and Beyoncé. Solange, who scolds reporters for just mentioning her sister, is not content to be seen as just a spawn of Beyoncé's parents — she must be different. While Beyoncé is all halos and sparkles and G-rated smiles, Solange is all blank stares and blazers and says the word "fuck." So it's not surprising that she doesn't want anything to do with Beyoncé's House of Deréon clothing line.


She says, "I initially was involved as the spokesperson, but the clothes just didn't reflect my personal style and I decided to hand that over."

...She adds, "That's the great thing about my family. We work together so closely that if something's not working out, we can be honest about it and there won't be any grudges or issues...

Of course Beyoncé would never hold a grudge. She's too happy being a super-megafamous singer/actress/designer to get mired in something so juvenile.
