NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU” is going to take on Elevatorgate 2014. The show announced that an upcoming episode titled “American Disgrace,” will depict a fictionalized version of the Solange/Jay Z elevator brawl that happened earlier this year at the Met Gala. And if that’s not enough drama, the episode will also include pieces of the Ray Rice elevator scandal and Donald Sterling’s racist comments because WHY NOT STIR THE POT? Check out a clip from the episode after the jump! Keep reading »
Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles, made an appearance on the Houston radio station 104.1 KRBE this week to make a totally unhelpful contribution to the Bey and Jay divorce rumors. He implied that the Knowles’ family drama, including Elevator-Gate, was nothing but a “Jedi Mind Trick” and that it doubled Solange’s album sales. He also hinted about a potential Destiny’s Child reunion, as if that is even remotely relevant right now. Are Bey and Jay’s marital problems one big publicity stunt, or is Mathew just trying to throw us off? At this point, neither would surprise me. There’s also the possibility that even Bey’s own father is not privy to what’s going on in that family and is just making things up off the top of his head. Thoughts? [Pop Sugar]
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 »
