Solange tells magazine "don't touch my hair" after publishing edited cover photo

The story itself ― posted online Thursday with the headline "Solange: "I Miss Out On Chances By Wanting Control Over My Body" ― focuses heavily on the singer's autonomy and the importance she places on her imagery. One of the more personal tracks of Solo's Grammy-winning album, A Seat At The Table, was "Don't Touch My Hair", a song that attempts to tackle the complex and deep relationship black women have with their hair.

Solange Knowles says the hair salon is her "safe haven" and the act of having her hair braided is an "art".

It's a unusual move for the magazine, especially since Solange talks openly about the importance of braiding in the cover story itself. It is an "act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition" ― it is "its own art form, ' she adds".

Dry Thursday with 70's and sunshine
There could be a few hazy spots, with readings in the middle 40s to lower 50s across the region. This weekend starts off nice with highs in the mid 70s with mostly sunny skies.

"To be honest, owning my body this year was really important to me", she revealed.

Part of that control, I would assume, meant choosing the intricate braid design she wore for her spread with the mag. I often lose opportunities based on my will to want to navigate through that ownership of my body in the most authentic way.

She called out the UK's Evening Standard Magazine on October 19 when she took to Instagram to post an unaltered version of her cover photo with the caption "DTMH" which was about her famous song called Don't Touch My Hair. She also tagged the Evening Standard Magazine's Instagram handle. "The crown was the whole goal of the complete look!" Earlier this summer, the "Cranes in the Sky" singer sent fans into a frenzy when she traded in her brown curls for short, blonde ones.

Controversy aside, the hair is handsome and at the very least, readers are able to see it in its full glory once they open up the magazine.

Solange is constantly pushing artistic boundaries with her music - and with her hair.

Fans were quick to jump to attention in the comments and express their own disappointment in seeing her hair, well, touched.
