Solange Tried to Mollywhop Jay-Z in an Elevator and I Haz Questions

Ok. Monday is getting off to an interesting start. TMZ dropped the tea and receipts of how Solange went all Mortal Kombat on Jay-Z in an elevator at the Met Gala as Beyonce watches and her bodyguard Julius intervenes. The video had me like WAYMENT!!! WUT?!

I have so many questions. SO MANY!

1. What made Solange fight her in-law? I mean full on “I wanna scratch your face” off attack. That isn’t some small offense. That’s the “I’m sick of your shit and it’s time you get it” stuff. What did Jay-Z do? Was she protecting Beyonce? Did he say some slick shit? WHAPPENED?? It had to be real serious because the level of gusto she used to come at him was epic.

AND THEN the fact that Bey left the Gala with Solange and Jay took a separate car. Chile… he really must have royally messed up. OR she wanted the chance to snatch her sister’s wig for embarrassing her in public. OR she was like “Thanks for coming to my defense, sis.”


b. Was this a first time fight? I’m asking because this situation doesn’t seem necessarily jarring to any of the parties. Jay-Z knew how to hold her off like he’s had to before and Bey was basically all “YAWN Julius get her off him.”

What Just Happened gif

iii. Why is Beyonce so damb cool allatahm? She maintained decorum and couth as this madness was happening. The only time she really moved was towards the end to put a little bit of space between Solange’s kicking legs and Jay because she probably thought the elevator door was gon open. Solo needed to calm down before it did and that was her bid for it.

GWIRL… this video. So much to unpack.

Many people are asking why Beyonce didn’t do much. What was she supposed to do? Whatever happened that made Solange go all Street Fighter, we might not know. But what is Mrs. Knowles-Carter supposed to do in that moment? She was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Besides, her bodyguard gets paid to keep bodies separate so she let him do his job. She probably cussed one (or both) of them out afterwards though. A lady like her keeps her cool in public.

4d. Seriously. What happened? I need to know because I’m nosy.

Solange Beyonce JayZ


e. Why am I dreading the aftermath of this fight? Between the memes and the thinkpieces that are about to come from this, I’ma wanna fight everyone myself by Wednesday. Already, the memes have started that Jay-Z got his ass whooped. He did not. He got struck by a woman and didn’t strike back (thankfully). Relax. And You. Yes, the one about to write a 5,000 word thinkpiece about Domestic Violence and Black Women based on that video. STAHP. We don’t want it. Thanks, though!

Let the record show that I am saying that this isn’t a good look for either party involved. For the tight machine that is the Knowles-Carter PR team, this is a snafu that hasn’t been seen til now. I wonder how they’ll handle it. There is trouble in paradise.

But ummm… we all shoulda known that anyone who rocks plaid, polka dots and leopard print all in the same ‪#‎alphet‬ ain’t afraid to fight. I’ma go, doe.

Chile… whatcha’ll think about this?

Edit: I just saw the extended version and it seems to give it a tad bit more context, as Solange looks like she’s having an argument of one and her refusal to chill is apparent. It seems that they exchanged a lotta words and Bey was looking like she tried to calm her down a little bi. But Solo wasn’t having it. She kept tryna go for Jay-Z. So much! I keep watching the video and pressing my volume increase button as if some audio is gon magically come out my speakers. O_o

    My coworker just said it might be that Beyoncé is pregnant because she kept her hands across her stomach the whole time… plus Solange is bi-polar and you are NOT supposed to drink when you are bi-polar because this is usually what happens…. it will be interesting to see how this plays out

  6. Peaceful
    May 12, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    Somehow, I think Solange is the goon Beyonce sends out when Jay-Z does something she (Beyonce) doesn’t like, lol. Hey, she’s gotta uphold her image. At the end, both their heads were turned towards him like they were giving him the “withering eye” staredown.

  7. May 12, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    That post-altercation photo though….Jay went one way, and the Knowles sisters got in the limo singing, “Do you want to build a snowman?”

    I think ppl need to relax on the jokes a bit because if situations were reversed it wouldn’t be funny at all. Also Bey didn’t make millions by getting caught fighting on elevators and she wasn’t gonna start now nor should she. As a Virgo myself I know Bey was like I don’t have time for this shit but I’m gonna put on my good face and then tore them both a new one privately as all family squabbles should be done cuz were very private ppl but we can only hold out tempers for so long . I don’t know what led up to this event but we will see how it plays out

    If Solo had too much to drink and was acting a fool, Bey should have stepped in and put her sis in her place. If Jay really did something horrible and Solo was defending her sis, Bey should have stepped in and tried to calm her sister down. Either way, she seemed too cool. Two of the most important people in her life and she’s standing back? I have lots of questions as well.

    • SincerelyPat
      May 12, 2014 at 2:02 pm

      I totally agree with you. He said or did something. As they were coming out of the elevator, he had that look on his face like, damn, I got caught or why did I say that. He did not look angry. Also, if you notice, he did try to get into the car behind Solange, the bodyguard, moved him to another vehicle.

    I immediately went for the “She’s doing this for her sister” thought because Bey doesn’t seem like a fighter and she certainly doesn’t get into conflict in public.
    But we all know we will NEVER find out what caused this so I’m going to keep delighting in the Twitter hashtag of #WhatJayZSaidToSolange and we’ll see if Basement Baby gets to move to the first floor guest room.

    am i a ratchet cuz i saw this and thought “#teamcrazybabysister” ? cuz i am a part of team crazy baby sister and i always thought solo was one of my people.
    I like solange ( cuz she a gangster) and Jay ( cuz he’s a gentleman) more for this.

    When it’s a husband and wife, and if there is now hitting between the two, you should not say anything. I don’t think this was the issue though.

    Methinks Solange had a bit too much juice and got made because J probably told her to put the last glass down. That looked like a “You don’t tell me what to do” drunk fight. Especially because he was so cool (what else is new) about it. The same with B.

    I think the separate cars was a call from B telling Solange to get it together.

    Another reason I think this had to do with juice: Why, if you want a career in music, would you fight the person who could really help you do that?

    I have no cans for the inevitable barrage of thinkpieces this epic breech in the Knowles-Carter Cosmic Top Secret machine will bring about either.

    We will never, not ever, know the true tea til Jesus come back, we all go on to glory and everything done in the dark comes to light.

    Solo might be feisty but she ain’t crazy, crazy. Jay did or said something to Bey that Solo found offensive. Solo morphed into the trillest third ward Olivia Pope and handled it. Juelz painted her toe-nails and cut cucumbers to take the stress off her eyes after her and Bey partied. All is right in the Knowles-Carter universe.

    Beyonce didnt do anything because she doesnt know how to act unless directed, told or prepped. You can claim that its because she has decorum and class. And yes she does… Because that is the role she has been molded to play. She a is product and a damn good one, she makes the money… just like Deana

  32. May 12, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    Wayment. KILLS!
    I say the fact that Beyonce didn’t jump in says this ain’t no new mess Solange done pulled. Bey ws like “Oh boy here we go again”

    In all seriousness, Jay Z took that mess… had the roles been reversed that Brother would have been locked up!

  33. Leah
    May 12, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    Yeah from the look of the video and the way Beyonce X Jayz responded, it sure does look like this isn’t the first time.
    I honestly hope they are all okay especially Beyonce. She is the Queen of “Smile through all the pain”.
    I am worried about Solange as well, the way she attacked her brother inlaw was alarming.
    Kudos to Jayz for not hitting her back, i have a newfound respect for him. I hope for his sake, he was not the one at fault because this is already a mess… Hiphop royalty/ first family? man.. this is going down in history.
    All in all, this is a PR’s worst nightmare!

  34. Erin
    May 12, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    From the extended clip, I think Beyonce knows that cameras are on all the time! So she tried to remain composed. Solange on the other hand had no fukks to give! #BrangIT Oh, they will all be questioned to death about this, and WE WILL NEVER GET AN ANSWER!!!! Unless the person who was recording this from their phone from the security screen somehow got audio as well! U nosy people will never know! LOL

    May 12, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    Anybody else get the impression that Solange is playing Beyonce’s Luther in this video? Note that almost the entire time Solange is hollering, Bey is lookin at Jay to see what his response might be and not at her sister like “What is wrong with you?” And in another video, Beyonce and Solange shared a car home, and Jay had to find a ride.

    Or his people found him one. Y’all know what I’m sayin’.

  40. nichole
    May 12, 2014 at 5:24 pm

    Where is Mama Tina when you need her?

    Looking at B and Solo, I think they all had some drinks and the sisters react differently to the drink. B seems to get quiet and maybe a bit silly. Solo seems to get mad, an angry drunk.

    I hope that’s the case. Keep in mind, brother-in-law or not, some men you can’t act like that with.

    May 12, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    I know one thing, for a full minute (1:40-2:40 mark) Solange was going AWF! She looks like she was giving Jay a GOOD READ.

    …and was still so pissed at whatever he’d done that she tried to smack the ish out of him again.

    Everything about her said “I’m sick of your sh!t!”

    Don’t know who started it, but at the finish, Jay looks all out of sorts and untucked, but Solo looks as fresh as her walk up the red carpet. She didn’t even break a sweat. And let’s not forget how she threw poor Julius
    around that box!!

    Solo released a tweet that she later deleted “I told y’all that he ain’t about that life. He hit her, imma hit you”

      Has this been confirmed? I haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere else.

          The Tweet is fake. The Met Gala was May 6. The supposed tweet was dated May 12 – AFTER the release of the elevator footage. Just a little too convenient, don’t ya think? As ticked off as Solo was that night, I can see her tweeting that the same night maybe, but a week later? #Nope Plus the font and layout of the tweet is off.

    I don’t think this is OK. Regardless of what started the altercation, the fact is that someone was assaulted. I’m pretty certain that if people were putting crap like this up if Jay-Z had been the one going after Solange there would be moral outrage for DAYS. Just because someone with a vagina hit someone with a penis doesn’t make the physical violence more acceptable or funny.

    Has anyone considered that maybe Bey abuses Jay? Their reactions show that this type of violence is not something outside of normal. Bey was way too calm for someone who’s sister is beating/kicking/spitting on her husband. Jay didn’t even seem shocked.

    I know my husband would be mortified if I allowed my sister to attack/spit on him in my presence and I not react. Then again, this would not happen.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they tag-team him often.

    Reports are now coming out that she got into it with Rachel Roy, before she got into it with Jay.

    I dunno what happened…BUT…my theory is that the episode unfolded like a serious offense was committed at some point before they got on the elevator. My decoding of the look on Bey’s face (half smile/half smirk) as they exited the elevator was a ‘good for your ass’ look that Jay Z couldn’t see. Bey seemed unfazed by it all in front of Z…but with all this hell breaking loose around her, if it wasn’t in her defense, I think she would have shown more emotion, tried to shut it down. Silence = consent (and agreement). The one and only time I went off like this was because I had taken a lot of shit from an older sister (all of my life and especially on that day because she kept bringing up a sore matter that I’d told her to stop talking about). She didn’t … and said it again, I could not control myself and the next thing I knew I had her down on the kitchen floor beating her head into the linoleum. Rage is a mother…..which Mr. Jay Z has probably learned.

    I’ma say that girl was PROOFED.

    And I think it may be an ongoing problem of the needing ten step variety. You can’t argue or reason with those peoples when they get to where they wanna go.

      I agree with this. I used to be a manager at a night club, I’ve seen that scene too many times. The fact that Bey, Jay, and Julius were calm says that they are used to her acting like that.

      At one point in the video, it looks like Solange and Beyonce exchanged words to me.

    Can I say, for the record, that Bey’s bodyguard should be fired? How he gonna keep Bey and Blue from getting kidnapped from a psycho fan when he abt hold back a chick weighing no more than a buck fiddy?! That is all.

    Thing is, Beyonce not helping to restrain her sister and leaving with her speaks volumes. My sixth sense tells me there has been trouble in paradise between her & Jay for some time. I don’t think that Solange was right for what she did, but we do not know what happens behind closed doors. I agree and have my own speculations: http://smoochingfrogs.com/blog/2014/5/13/solange-vs-jay-z

    S/n: Solange is fashionable. Her style is different.

  57. […] what she can’t say in interviews, on display in movie form. It definitely gives some context to Solange wilding out on Jay-Z in that elevator a couple of years […]

  58. […] it, you still can’t let go of the ‘Elevator accident’ and after 2 years we finally have some […]
