Singer Solange Knowles can't stop laughing after a question about her came up on "Jeopardy."
You know you've made it if a question about you comes up on "Jeopardy."
But for Solange Knowles, the honor turned out to be a double-edged sword, and she can't stop laughing about it.
We all know how "Jeopardy" works, the quiz contestants are presented with a general knowledge clue and are supposed to come up with the answer.
This time, it all went hilariously wrong when Alex Trebek gave his contestants the following clue about singer Solange:
“In 2019 Solange released this album that was full of nostalgia for her native Houston,” he said.
"When I Get Home" is her fourth studio album, and was released on March 1, 2019
That's right. Or very wrong. Not ONE of the contestants knew the answer and stood in awkward silence until Trebek put them out of their misery by telling them the answer: Solange's album “When I Get Home.”
The highly amused Solange had a good laugh and even posted the "Jeopardy" clip featuring the clue about her on Twitter where it quickly went viral with over 15,000 retweets.
Solange posted the clip with the caption: "LMAOOO!" as she very well might, because the "Jeopardy" contestants may not have heard her new album, but the critics have and they are raving.
"When I Get Home" is her fourth studio album, and was released on March 1, 2019, and hit #7 on the US Billboard 200,
Take that, "Jeopardy" contestants!
Solange Knowles' fans who follow her on social media know that it's very unlikely they will catch even a glimpse of her son, Daniel Julez Smith.
Solange, who had Daniel in 2004 when she was just 18, is extremely careful about exposing her son, now 14, to social media trolls.
A few years ago a social media user threw an unpleasant remark at the then little boy, calling him "ugly" and Solange reacted.
"I can only imagine why you would feel the need to say such things, but thanks again for being a reminder that out of all the love and wonderful energy shared, that when I open up a space for an innocent beautiful being like my boy to be criticized and judged, that I WILL most likely respond, and that he receives enough love and celebration at home that it’s just not worth it to go down this road," she wrote.
Since then, Beyoncé's younger sister has never again shared any snaps of her precious boy or exposed him to the vicious and malicious trolls who seem to take a strange delight in demeaning the innocent.,
