On Tuesday, the Losing You singer took to Instagram to share some insight about her hectic schedule juggling both her career and her family life.
The 29-year-old wrote:
“8 gigs, 8 studio sessions, 6 flights, in 2 weeks….but got to sleep in my bed for 2 nights ├░┼╕┼Æ┬╗While I was home Julez pulled out my chair for me at lunch, said he’d sell his Nintendo so I could get a dress I loved when we went stopped by a store, and said he sees Chinese symbols when he listens to Alice Coltrane. He’s phenomenal and I’m in love with he and it’s really really hard to be away. I cried this morning because this is the longest we’ve been apart and my insides kind of split in half when I headed to the airport, but I’m working really really hard to finish this damn album and so grateful to have his and my hubby’s support.”
Aww! We can’t imagine being a working mom is easy. Nonetheless, we’re incredibly impressed with the up-and-comer’s candor with her fans.
“I like to use IG to create and share a little color and laughter in my life, and to see the beauty and fun in things in the midst of a lot of hard ass work and sacrifice that goes along with it. Its just not fun to show the 18 hour studio days, even when I’m sick as hell, coughing all up on @audio_nino (sorry Nino) , and then getting up at 6am to tackle the 400 borriiinnng emails @johnbogaardand I exchange daily (sorry john, but you do make me lol for every 10 emails├░┼╕╦£ΓÇ░),while trying to balance running multiple businesses and still find time to dedicate to issues that are important to me.
At the end of all, just when I think I’m going to do something crazy like get a face tat or shave my eyebrows off, or spray paint my hands metallic silver and then do the home alone scream, so I have permanently have shiny handprints on my cheeks, my heart just explodes with gratitude….that this is my life.”
Well said! Who said being a superstar was easy?? HA!
“I couldn’t be more grateful, humbled, and really, God honestly, blessed. So suck it up bissh, and stop being emo and whiney on the insta, and get the fuck back to work…..cuz you knooooow you took this pictures weeeeeks ago when you actually were glowing like that, lol. (Although to be fair, I could’ve worn this in 80 degree Nola yesterday ├ó╦£Γé¼├»┬╕┬Å ) ok. bye├░┼╕ΓÇÿΓÇ╣├░┼╕┬Å┬╛. “
Solange may be stressed, but it seems her hard work is paying off. We can’t WAIT to hear what she has to show the world on her upcoming album!
