3pm: This post has been updated to include TMZ’s extended version of the video after the jump.
All is not as well as it seems in Beyoncé’s world. In a surveillance video obtained by TMZ, her sister Solange Knowles is seen punching and kicking Jay Z inside an elevator allegedly at some point after the Met Ball last week. The video, shot from above, shows Jay in his white tux entering the elevator at the Standard Hotel, with Solange getting up in his face and taking swings until she’s pulled away by someone who appears to be a body guard.

Where Brooklyn at? No, literally, where Brooklyn at?

Anyway, this isn’t just about me and how the hell I can justify spending bank money on tickets for a show in another state. This is about you and how far you’ll have to run to see the “On The Run” tour. See all 16 stops after the jump! Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 8 a.m.! [I Am Beyonce] Keep reading »
I love each and every song on Beyonce’s recent self-titled album, but I have a special soft spot for “Drunk In Love,” her collab with husband Jay Z. I mean, it’s sexy, fun to dance to and hilarious. Surfboart? “Graining on that wood”? “Her breasteses are my breakfastes”? While the song is perfect as is, that didn’t stop Kanye West from trying to make it better by remixing the song with some of his own lyrical flourishes. Take a listen after the jump and let me know what you think in the comments! Keep reading »
