Solange Knowles is not having a good week—and it’s only Wednesday!

The singer and younger sister of Beyoncé was rushed to the hospital yesterday after fainting at an airport on her way home from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. She was treated for dehydration and low blood pressure.

“Woke up to 8 random people over me, laid out on the floor in baggage claim!” Knowles posted on her Twitter page early this morning. “Guess I passed out! Scary. Hooked up to IV now. Apparently I'm super dehydrated.”

It sounds like things began to go wrong early in her flight.

Knowles started to feel loopy when she tried to get some sleep by downing cough medicine. “I took a nyquil and i think maybe im getting high off it because im not sleeping,” she wrote, adding later, “everythings movvvvviinnngg slooooowww, lol.”

She was released from the hospital after a second round of IV and a visit from her mother, Tina. "My mom is the best. LOL," Knowles wrote. "She's like, ain't nothing wrong with this girl, she need some water and rest...Pull up the car! LOL."

Just a few hours before the medical drama, Knowles suffered another emergency—a fashion emergency, that is. She accidentally showed off some boobage because of the sheer top she wore to the Toni Maticevski Fall 2009 show.

“i always wear undies, never been carried out of the club drunk, i wont even pose for king or any 'eye candy' type shoots and now look,” she Twittered. “My s--t on display for all the world to see."

Her vow for now? “I’m wearing turtlenecks for the rest of the year gosh dammit.”
