Solange Knowles Best?

Solange Knowles doesn’t want to be known as Beyoncé’s sister or Jay-Z’s sister-in-law. She’s acted (but we never saw her onscreen), modeled (not that we saw her on billboards or in the pages of magazines), dabbled in fashion design (we’re still looking for her brand name in stores) and even put out a record. We remember that last one, only because it featured the worst title since Fiona Apple’s 90-word logorrheic mess in ’99: Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams.

Still, Knowles was at Tao Beach atop the Venetian on June 12, where she joined the likes of Paris Hilton and other wannabe DJs, doing a short stint in the booth. While there, Knowles got her obligatory Biggie in with “Juicy,” a song about giving the kiss-off to everyone who said you’d never amount to anything. Aaaaand we’re over it.
