Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange hit up ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend…

With everything that’s been going on in Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange‘s world over this past week, it’s no wonder they’re absolutely everywhere (more than usual), and even though they already put out a statement asking everyone to move on from Elevatorgate 2014, we still want to know what REALLY happened. And now we do.

The trio stopped by Saturday Night Live this weekend to reveal the truth behind the drama – and turns out, it was just a silly misunderstanding over an unwieldy spider.

LOL to that. In all seriousness, I really hope we can move on from this now that all the obligatory jokes have been made. And on a more “serious” note, here’s a fake movie trailer/real promo trailer for Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s upcoming summer On the Run tour:

Did The Solange Knowles/Jay Z Elevator Fight Happen Over A Fashion Designer?

Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Benefit  Gala

Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z in an elevator (with Beyoncé present), and we’re still talking about it. Jay and Bey released a statement about it, but still no one is sure why it happened — until now. And it may have something to do with fashion designer Rachel Roy (above with Solange in 2012). From the Daily News:

“Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” a source told The News. “Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyoncé doesn’t like it.”

Solange, 27, unceremoniously told the designer that “anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” a source told Us Weekly.

Rumor had it that the brawl was over Jay Z trying to attend Rihanna’s after-party.

Roy, no pushover herself, didn’t back down when Solange told her she was “too close” to Jay Z, a source who was close to the spat said.
“Rachel is combative and a tough girl,” the source said. “She didn’t back down.”

Beyoncé and Jay Z jumped in the middle of the two as they exchanged angry words. At some point, with Solange separated from Roy, Jay Z told his sister-in-law that she was “out of line” for mouthing off to Roy.

And apparently, that’s not the end of it. While everyone else wanted to call it a night, Jay Z wanted to go to Rihanna‘s after party at Up & Down.

The problem with that plan, a source said, was Solange thought Roy was going to be at Up & Down — and it led her to get all UFC on Jay Z in the hotel’s elevator, sources said.

I don’t know what the hell to make of any of this. I guess it’s all as good a theory as any? What do you make of it?

Oh, God: Solange, Jay-Z and Beyoncé released a statement on the elevator incident

solange jay-z

It was only a matter of time, I suppose, before the Knowles/Carter clan were forced to speak up on the much-spoken about incident that took place in the elevator at the Standard Hotel after the Met Gala earlier this month. Jokes were made, memes were created and seemingly everyone and their grandmother had a theory on why Solange tried to beat the shit out of Jay-Z and why Beyoncé didn’t seem to care all that much either way.

Well, here’s what they told the Associated Press on Thursday:

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred.

They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.

The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day, families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

LOL, of course you hope everyone else will do the same. Not exactly happy about having a tarnish on that perfect reputation, are we, Beyoncé? You can tell she couldn’t even be bothered with this statement.

I do think some people online have made some great points about how, were the tables turned and it was Jay attacking Solange, there would have been a lot less laughter and a whole lot more criticism, and rightfully so. Just because Solange is a woman doesn’t make her physical violence okay, but there have long been reports about her being a little… shall we say unruly. I’m a Solange fan, musically speaking, but this whole thing needs to calm down now, and homegirl needs to get some anger management.
