Beyonce performed at a Clinton rally in Cleveland, Ohio on Friday where she commanded the Beyhive to fly into the polling places to use their stingers to punch a hole next to the name Hillary Clinton. (Beyonce tried but you know the BeyHive is going to write-in her name in their bee blood.) While she was doing that, Solange was in NYC preparing to dust our faces with several layers of new age art, sweet lyrical dance moves and high fashion (that’s usually only found in a public access movie from the 1970s about space).
It was fitting that The Alien Lizard King (earth name: Benedict Cumberbatch) was the host of Saturday Night Live last night and introduced Solange’s performances, because she took us on a journey through the cosmos and her performance is what I’d hallucinate if I stared at a solar system craft project after snorting angel dust. For her first performance, she did Cranes in the Sky and wore a gorgeous spider web hair halo made from old weaves and beads that fell off of Christmas ornaments. I also see that she recycled the crystal shirt thing that Beyonce wore on the Dangerously in Love album cover.
For her second performance, she did Don’t Touch My Hair and at the 3:23 mark, she put down her mic and showed the likes of Mia Michaels up! Her interpretive modern dance was made up of dashes of Paso Doble, Kung Fu moves, Walk Like An Egyptian choreography, the Age of Aquarius number from The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Mary J. Blige on ecstasy. I loved it! THIS is dance!
That dance was so powerful that it hypnotized both Tina Knowles and Beyonce into finally realizing that Solange is the true Queen of the Knowles and they turned themselves into a human throne just for her:
All hail, the rise of Queen BB!
