Solange’s Move to Brooklyn Was Beyoncé’s Idea

Solange Knowles.

Did you know that Solange Knowles and her 7-year-old son, Daniel, officially moved to Carroll Gardens last fall? Apparently it was Beyoncé who convinced her to do so. Reports the Times:

“I’ve been trying to talk her into going to Brooklyn for six years,” Beyoncé said. “It’s so close to her personality. She’s such a fashionista — she’ll get used to it.”

Indeed, Solange — who previously split her time between L.A. and Houston — has settled right into the decidedly non-Beyoncé "alt-hipster" D.J. scene, although she finds some of her non-"fashionista" neighbors a little weird. "The strollers don’t bother me, but the intensity of the moms does," she says. "Everyone does so much yoga and drinks so much tea." (Brooklyn problems!) Meanwhile, just as she declined to be part of her mom's clothing label, House of Dereon, she continues to refuse to sing with her sister, too. “My sister will not record with me,” Beyoncé said. “She’s her own woman.”
