Two days ago, I started writing about the now infamous elevator tussle (?) wherein Solange Knowles tried to kick the crap out of her brother-in-law Jay Z, while her sister, Beyonce just stood and watched it all go down, but then I just stopped writing. I couldn’t get myself into all of the what if’s and why’s.
The video, which TMZ
paid upwards of $250,000 for obtained, can be viewed HERE if you somehow, on God’s Green Earth, haven’t seen the blurry footage yet.
Families fight, we can all agree to that, yes? Personally speaking, my family members prefer the passive-aggressive freeze-out after some nasty words are spit out, so we all have our own special methods of dysfunction. The thing about Beyonce is that she’s done her level best to throw a sheen of perfection on everything she says, does, and sings about. Even her beautiful ballad, “Flaws and All” is, well, FLAWLESS.
Rumors are flying every which way as to why Solange lost her shit in the elevator. Some say she had too much to drink, some say she was merely tipsy. Some say Jay was straight up trying to party with Rihanna while his wife was being sent home, and Solange wasn’t having any of it. The only people who truly know what was shouted in that elevator are the four people inside that closed space. (Remember, bodyguard Julian was there to hold Solange back from Jay Z.)
I have some questions, for YOU, my Dollies.
Should there be public outrage (see Chris Brown) that Solange attacked Jay Z in the first place? Do we applaud Jay Z for not fighting back? Who acts like this after the Met Gala? Do we just love to see a REAL Behind the Scenes clip of the Perfect Carter/Knowles Family–as opposed to the HBO version Beyonce gave us in “Life Is But A Dream”? Beyonce prides herself on being real, but that “documentary” was ridiculous. Wigs,
fake baby bellies, “no make-up, I wake up looking this FLAWLESS“-pseudo perfection. I was in Full-Body Eyeroll-mode for two hours. Go look at Bey’s Instagram account. It’s PERFECT, right down to the Pepsi product placement, snuggly pics of Jay, and yes, lots of shots of li’l sister Solange. (I hear-tell Solange deleted all photos of Beyonce on HER Instagram account, though.) We’re really getting some 7th grade girl behavior hard.
Anyway. What. The. HELL, you guys? I need your help on this.
