The singer debuts a new super-short do over Instagram, surprising even her longtime stylist Kim Kimble. "I got a little teary eyed!" Kimble tells PEOPLE. "I've been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it's hard to grow hair out … I feel a little emotional but excited for her too. Short hair, don't care!"
The singer and her family make front-page news when footage of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z is released. Surveillance video appears to show Solange yelling at the rapper before hitting and kicking him as a man tries to restrain her. "There has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it," the trio say in a joint statement to The Associated Press.
