Solange is “at peace” with that whole Jay-Z elevator fight

It was only a few months ago when Solange unleashed a can of whoop ass upon Jay-Z in a New York City elevator after the Met Ball for… whatever reason. While the Knowles-Carter family released a collaborative statement insisting that they were all still on good terms following the incident, Solange has finally spoken out about it for the first time in a new interview with Lucky.

It’s a subject she expects in conversation but one she doesn’t want to focus on. She calls the incident “that thing.” “What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she says. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”

She is happy to discuss the values her parents taught both of their daughters: hard work along with unconditional love and support for each other. “We’ve always held each other down no matter what,” she says. “That’s something I’m drilling into Julez now.”

LOL at “that thing”. How flippant! This whole thing is done and over with (or is it?!) so I can see why she’d be over talking about it, but it’s bound to happen when you start beating your brother-in-law’s ass.

Did Beyonce admit that Jay-Z cheated?

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are currently touring across America as part of their On The Run tour, but this is going on amidst (more) reports that Jay cheated on her. Some say it was with Rachel Roy, others say it was with women that aren’t really anyone of note, but the whole Knowles/Carter camp has kept quiet on this… until now?

During a show in Ohio last weekend, Bey sang one of her unreleased songs called ‘Resentment’, which is a big fan favourite but people outside the Beyhive won’t really know. However, she changed the lyrics in a way that made a lot of people think she might just be ready to admit that her husband was unfaithful…

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could

Been ridin’ with you for six years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me.

NEW LYRICS:

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like that wack bitch could

Been ridin’ with you for twelve years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.

Huh. Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been together for 12 years now, so that part seems to fit. However, if the song was already about a man cheating on his wife, why did the lyrics even need to be changed? The song already applies. I suppose the “bitch” line makes it all a little more personal and heated, but I don’t think we’ll ever know what truly happened… unless she serves him with divorce papers on the final night of the tour or something.

Video of the performance is here:

What do you think? Did Jay-Z cheat on Beyoncé? Is this why Solange had to go and snatch his ass in that elevator?

Uh Oh… Are we starting not to care about Beyoncé and Jay-Z?

56th GRAMMY Awards - Show

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are America’s king and queen, right? Everyone loves them (I mean in the broader sense) and treats them like royalty. They’re even friends with the Obamas! With that in mind, you’d assume that the tickets to their On the Run tour set for this summer in the US would have sold out in seconds… but it seems that’s not the case.

From Radar Online:

A quick look on Ticketmaster reveals less than desirable ticket sales for the hip-hop royalty duo, with one industry insider exclusively telling RadarOnline.com their personal lives and a lack of airplay on the radio could be contributing.

According to the leading ticket sales distributor, tens of thousands of tickets are still available for the “On the Run” concert in Miami on July 25, as well as Atlanta on July 15 and a July 12 show in New Jersey.

These are metropolis cities across the United States that typically sell out concerts quickly, as they did with Justin Timberlake‘s recent “20/20? tour and Madonna‘s “MDMA” tour.

“Beyonce’s album had a big first month with ‘Drunk in Love’, but the last several singles have tanked on the charts,” the insider told Radar.

“If you’re launching a stadium tour, you have to have airplay, and she’s had no hits lately on the radio.”

“It’s overload. The public has been left with a sour taste in their mouth because of the elevator fight and all the information that leaked about Jay and B’s relationship afterward,” the source said.

True, true. It’s definitely a case of “too much of a good thing”. I enjoy them both as artists, but we’re being oversaturated with Bey and Jay and people are tired of it. There’s always an inevitable backlash when that happens. Does it mean the end of their careers? Of course not. It does mean, however, that we all need a nice little break, which shouldn’t be a bad thing. They should take some time off, too!
