Solange Knowles has denied that she is jealous of her sister Beyonce's hugely successful career, saying that she kept out of the spotlight by choice.
The 27-year-old has fast become a fashion icon in recent years with her quirky and unique style, and she is now a guest columnist for Vogue magazine. While Solange is now becoming famous in her own right, she has spent most of her life in Beyonce's shadow.
However, Solange doesn't see it like that and is happy that she can still live a relatively normal life.
"I really enjoy my privacy and being able to walk my son to school every morning and pick him up every afternoon," she told Rollercoaster magazine.
"I know that I couldn't do that if I was at the next level - privacy, as you know, it just doesn't belong to you anymore. I definitely made a conscious effort to stay as low key as I can and still do what I want to do."
Solange recalls what it was like to watch Beyonce catapult to superstardom both in Destiny's Child and as a solo artist.
"She was and is such a role model, but I think more so it was an insane learning process for me to have a big sister like that - to be able to see the good, the bad and everything in between that comes with fame and success, and to know what I was getting myself into."
