    Solange Knowles Talks Dating "All Those Losers," Opens Up About Life After Divorce

    Solange Knowles was divorced with a child by the age of 21, has had an illustrious music career, started a record label and was named the Creative Director of Puma all before turning 30 years old.

    And despite the ups and downs she's faced, Beyoncé's little sister says in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar she's grateful for all the lessons she's learned along the way.

    "In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27. Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life," she told the women's magazine.

    "Everyone talks about how, in your 30s, all of these growing pains transition into wisdom and you feel more self-assured and confident. But I think I had a bit of a jump-start on that at 27."

    She also explained that her long-lasting relationship with Alan Ferguson, a successful video director, has helped give her a sense of balance in per personal life.

    The fashionista dished, "Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while. It's a f--ked up thing—without conflict it's a lot harder to write interesting songs."

    But she reveals that she has more freedom than ever before to take chances, both on a personal and professional level.

    "For the first time in my life, I'm basing every decision around the idea of whether I want to do it or if I think it will be inspiring. And that's paid off for me."
