Solange Knowles has canceled her upcoming European festival tour. A lesser woman might have faked a bout of laryngitis, but Knowles instead went into working-mom-overshare mode. "Between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/recording my new record, I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health," she said in a statement to Us, adding that she wants to "provide some stability for [her] family." Are you not bowled over by Knowles's sincerity yet? This word elongation might move you: "I am so so sooooo sorry if I've disappointed and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!"
