I can imagine that being from a famous family has both perks and drawbacks and it looks like Solange Knowles, the younger sister of Beyoncé, talked about that recently with Rap-Up. Here’s what she said: “At this point, it’s starting to hurt me more than help me because my family is sort of known as the new age Huxtables. We’re the clean-cut girls. But I got married at 17, had a kid at 17. Ever since I was younger, I always considered myself to be into more artistic things than [Beyoncé]. People just hear the [Knowles] name and they just put a stamp on it automatically.”
What do you think? Is being from a famous family better or worse in a situation like Solange’s? Personally, I don’t think she would have been known at all so it’s probably a blessing although I’m sure it gets annoying sometimes.
