LONDON — Britain’s Evening Standard newspaper has apologized to Solange Knowles for digitally altering an image of the singer on the cover of its magazine.

Knowles – who had released a song called “Don’t Touch My Hair” – complained on Instagram that an elaborate braided crown on her head had been digitally removed from the photo.

The magazine article featured the singer talking about spending time at her mother’s salon as a child. She also discussed braiding’s importance to her and praised it as “its own art form.”

The magazine said Saturday that the photo was altered for “layout purposes.”
