Solange has become quite the style icon during the past couple of years so you’d think her reality TV show of choice would be something fashion oriented but that’s not the case. In the April/May issue of Complex magazine, the Carol’s Daughter spokeswoman played a little game of “Would You Rather,” and when it came to being on the cast of either Love and Hip-Hop or Project Runway, Solange said she’s Love and Hip-Hop all the way.

“I’ve never seen Project Runway, but I’m a huge Chrissy [Lampkin] fan. I’d need to take boxing lessons from her first though, nahmean?”

We definitely know what she means. We’d probably rather see her on her own show than make an appearance on anybody else’s anyway. Solange also had some pretty cool things to say about her mother’s fashion style and her overall approach to womanhood.

Check out a few of the other things Solange would rather do:

I’d rather have known my parents when they were younger than only know them as my parents. My mother was the most stylish, flawless woman I’ve ever seen. My father had a little cool, but my mother was a different breed of cool. I’ve looked through photographs of her that inspire me today. She’s partied at Studio 54, hung out in ski chalets in Colorado, and played Cleopatra in a play in Egypt. She’s insanely cool in her 50s, but I wouldn’t pass up being with her in her prime!

I’d rather be submissive than dominant. Strong, independent women share this sentiment of wanting to be taken over sexually behind closed doors. It’s the natural balance for a woman like me.

I’d rather live in the U.S. than Europe. I talk sh*t about the American way, and how much more together Europe is as a society, but traveling as much as I have, there are lots of things I appreciate about home. I plan on living in Europe at some point, but for now I’m good in Brooklyn.

I’d rather be the cool aunt than the authoritative aunt. The closer my sister came to motherhood, the more stern she was with my son, Julez, but when he was between the ages of 1 and 4, she put the s in spoiling. I had to deal with the cool aunt for seven years, and I’m ready for payback! Late nights, candy binges—I’m doing it all!

I’d rather be the protector than the protected. I’m naturally the protector—being a mother and having a famous family. You have to navigate when it’s right to protect. I’ve made mistakes, but just know, if you step to me and mine, me and Chrissy gon’ have to f*ck you up.

What do you think about Solange’s overall style?

    I love Solange! It’s truly refreshing to still have people left in this industry with genuine personalities like her. I love her confidence…she can rock a curly fro and mix patterns without even thinking about it and look fabulous while doing it. She has a lovely voice and will continue to go far.

    is it really that serious. It is an appearance. Not a hosting gig. Jeeshe.
