Giving Thanks: What Celebs Are Grateful For

What Solange, Kanye and more can reflect upon Thanksgiving.

Solange Explains Her Hives  - Solange is getting settled with her new husband following her New Orleans nuptials that broke the Internet. We saw lots of chic photos from her wedding but we also saw a photo of Solo with hives all over her face. Turns out, she had an allergic reaction to something (as we figured) but that didn't stop the fun of her wedding.   She captioned this video of her and her son dancing with:Last but not least....:) Shout out to Benadryl yo, lol. NOTHING was gonna stop me from having my mother and son dance with Julez. My baby killed it and will forever remain my favorite dance parter of all time. My heart will forever smile reliving the feeling our lil happy feet together.And that's how you do it up on your wedding day!   (Photo: KDNPIX/Splash News)

Solange Knowles' Picture-Perfect Wedding - It's the time of year when we're all counting our blessings, and some celebs have more to be grateful for than just money and fame. Here's our list of things stars should be thankful for this year.Solo's wedding to music video director Alan Ferguson was an intimate affair in New Orleans attended by all the closest people in her life — sister Beyoncé, brother-in-law Jay Z and mom Tina Knowles.

J. Cole's Born Sinner Goes No. 1 - It was surprising that Jay would have allowed J. Cole to change his release date to compete with 'Ye's Yeezus. It seemed like sales suicide. But in its third weeks on the charts, instead of a downward flow, Born Sinner moved up and took the No. 1 spot. Only 13% of Billboard's No. 1's have made a power trip like that.(Photos: Chelsea Lauren/Getty Images for BET; Roc Nation)
