  • WE HAVE AN ANSWER! Sort of. Maybe. The New York Daily News is claiming Solange Knowles drunkenly attacked Jay Z in the elevator of The Standard Hotel because she was upset her friends couldn’t get into an after-party. The source claims that two of Solange’s non-famous friends, who weren’t invited to the Met Ball, used Jay Z’s name to try to get in. “They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers,” the source dished. “Management went to Julius (Beyonce’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.” Jay reportedly told Solange not to use his name and she got upset, only getting more irate when Jay wanted to go to Rihanna’s after-party by himself while Beyoncé headed home.

Some Thoughts On That Jay Z/Solange Brawl, Female-On-Male Violence & Fights Between Siblings

Some Thoughts On That Jay Z/Solange Brawl, Female-On-Male Violence & Fights Between Siblings

Like, oh, basically everyone everywhere, I’ve been totally consumed with thoughts about the fight between Jay Z and Solange Knowles following the Met Ball a few weeks ago, security footage of which was leaked online yesterday. I’m a fangirl of both Knowles sisters, and my belief in everlasting love is tied maybe a little too closely to the marriage between Jay and Beyonce, so as a Carter Family obsessive, this story is impossible to ignore. Given that Beyonce and Jay Z’s life is presented so flawlessly to the public — even their past troubles have been presented after the fact with a glossy veneer of hindsight and lessons learned — the elevator brawl between Beyonce’s husband and her little sister Solange reveals a rather large chink in the Carter Family armor, provoking loads of understandable questions and speculation.

Chances are good that we’ll never know the details, and even if anyone involved does explain what went down, it’ll be carefully worded. To be very, very clear though: Solange Knowles violently attacking Jay Z, for any reason, is not okay. It’s assault. How this will play out legally, now that the tape has been released to the public and thus to the attention of authorities, remains to be seen.

Whenever I do hear about a woman being violent towards a man, I’m forced to confront my own history of such behavior. I can count the number of times where I’ve “snapped” to such a degree on less than two hands, only three of which actually resulted in physical contact. They all involved men I was very close to and love/loved. (I’ve never been in a physical fight with another woman and very rarely verbally fight with other women.) Keep reading »

Solange Gets Down At Glastonbury

I’m so glad we live in a world where there is not just one Knowles sister, but two, and that we are free to love both of them equally. A few months ago, I went to see Solange — that’s Beyonce’s little sis, for those of you who do not keep up with the spawn of Tina and Matthew — perform and was struck by how different these two are. Solange is a lot more understated in her singing, in her style and in her dance moves. But oh, how the crowd loves it when Basement Baby gets her groove on! While Beyonce turns out all sorts of tricks at her immense live show, all Solange has to do to get her fans screaming is snap her fingers, roll her shoulders and shimmy her hips. Click through to check out Solange’s killer  moves on stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend.

Crazy Rumor: Beyonce Is Solange Knowles’ Mother, Not Her Sister

There are some crazy rumors popping up that Beyonce Knowles is actually a mother to Solange and NOT her sister! WTF, right?!?

Could you even imagine that? Firstly, let’s look at the facts, shall we? According to Wikipedia, Beyonce was born on September 4, 1981. Wikipedia also reports that Solange was born on June 24, 1986. So, for Bey to technically be Solange’s mother, she would’ve had to have had her when she was a mere five-years-old. Interesting. Read more …

Well Played: Beyonce & Solange Both Bring It In Different Ways To The “Life Is But A Dream” Premiere

It was a family affair at last night’s premiere of Beyonce’s HBO documentary “Life Is But A Dream,” with both Knowles ladies walking the red carpet in daringly different looks. On one side, we have the star of the show, Beyonce, rocking a gorgeous, glamorous and glittering gown (try to say that 10 times fast). On the other side, we have her edgy lil’ sis, Solange, not wearing pants. I happen to think she looks amazing. Maybe there are shorts under there? I can’t tell. Whatever. When you’re Beyonce’s sister, you can wear whatever you want to her party. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Beyonce is one tough act to follow, but it’s hardly a secret that Solange is the more style-savvy Knowles ― all those years spent concealed in the basement must have allowed Bey’s younger sis to amass quite the wardrobe. Solange’s eclectic fear-no-critic aesthetic means that, for all of her sartorial hits, she has her fair share of misses … not to mention misses that are hits just because she’s wearing them. The singer chose this slinky peach number for a fragrance launch last night, and though I wouldn’t call it a bad look because, well, Solange Knowles doesn’t do bad looks, I am weirdly bothered by the “hanging flap” effect created by the double slit. On a better note, girlfriend is sporting a bangin’ gold cage bracelet. Are you feeling this daring take on the trend, or do you prefer to keep the slit count at one?

What do you think of Solange's double-slit style?
