Solange Is 'Glamour's 2017 Woman of the Year

She opens up about self-discovery and her journey to stardom.

Solange Knowles has been chosen as one of Glamour‘s 2017 “Women of the Year.” After releasing her confessional and revolutionary album, A Seat At The Table, Knowles became a symbol of hope and restoration for black women around the world.

In an honest interview, she shares the inspiration behind her Grammy-awarded album:

“I knew I had to make this record to become a better human, better mother, better wife, better friend. I knew I was carrying around so many microaggressions, that transitioned into trauma, that transitioned into rage, that transitioned into a weight I carried around. I needed to disassemble these things as much as possible so I could operate from a place of healing and so I wouldn’t pass that negativity on to my son.”

Today, months after the success of her project, she ascertains, “I’m excited I get to be this complex, complicated, loud, vocal, flawed woman and still be worthy of recognition.” The community and sisterhood of women seems to be of the utmost importance for the creator and she doesn’t apologize for expression in any way. In a spread shot by Petra Collins, Solange poses by the arid countryside in both Gucci and Maison Margiela.
