Did Solange Knowles ‘dis’ Kelly Rowland?
Solange Knowles_0.jpgSolange Knowles told a UK newspaper recently that she is thinking about adopting a child just as her parents adopted Kelly Rowland.

Media-Take-Out reported Beyonce’s little sister’s wishes for her future in ‘familyhood’ and implied in their report that Solange was disrespectful to speak of Kelly as if she had not been lovingly raised by her own mother and had her own family.

The UK report included a quote in which Solange said, “Kelly grew up with me since I was about five years old, so she is my sister. She didn't come from my parents, but there is nothing I feel differently for her than my sister” Solange has a son, Daniel and reportedly told the UK paper that she wants to follow in the footsteps of people like Angelina Jolie and Madonna and adopt a child since growing up with Kelly proved to her that one need not be blood relatives to form sisterly bonds.

Was this comparing Kelly to abandoned or orphaned children? Anyway, Solange is not rushing into things, as she claims that she has to find a man first.
