Another day, another rumor that the House of Carter is dangerously close to falling apart. If all this noise about Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s supposed trouble marriage is getting to you, let’s try to focus on the good stuff: amazing musical collaborations, an adorable baby, and flawless Instagram photos. This may not be real life, but it’s a manicured perfection we’d love to imagine ourselves living in. Read more…
With all the attention surrounding Solange Knowles—thanks to that leaked video of her attacking Jay Z in an elevator—we thought it was worth looking back on her musical career and rounding up her ten most essential songs. As the Internet throws shade, saying her attack on the rapper was her biggest hit, true fans know there’s more to the singer. From her first solo record to her collaborations with Chromeo and Janelle Monae, Knowles has been turning out a superb mix of neo soul, classic R&B and modern funk.
After a week dominated by speculation around the Carter-Knowles family’s interpersonal drama, Beyoncé and Jay Z want the gossip to stop. The couple released an official statement on the footage obtained from the Standard Hotel elevator, concluding that Solange‘s behavior was not the result of drunkenness and all families have their issues. The claim that Bey, Jay, Solange et al. are “no different” from other families is up for debate.
Speculation has swirled around the Carter-Knowles family in the wake of surveillance video showing a physical altercation between Jay Z and his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles. Now, amid rumors and ridicule (just take a look at the gallery above), Jay, Solange, and Beyonce have released a statement to the Associated Press.
Beyoncé has been in seven feature films to date. Did you remember that The Pink Panther, opposite Steve Martin, was one of them? At least tell me that you recall “Check On It,” a modern day classic featured on the film’s soundtrack? (And if you don’t agree, then who are you?)
It’s another day and the #SolangeGate continues to unfold in unexpected ways. The latest is news that Solange Knowles and Jay Z recently went jewelry shopping in New York City. The news came just a day after video of the singer hitting the rapper leaked to the internet. Apparently it was a seemingly carefully orchestrated PR move that never even happened. Greg Yuna, the owner of the jewelry store, debunked the rumors on The Wendy Williams Show. But that’s not the only crazy development.
The Carter-Knowles clan has always been in the spotlight, but yesterday’s shocking reveal nearly broke the internet. In video obtained by TMZ, Solange is seen going off on her sister’s husband, Jay Z, in the elevator of a Met Gala after party (while Beyoncé stands to the side). We all have occasional familial dysfunction, but the idea that a group generally considered to be perfect, invincible and ***flawless could experience something that intense upended our week and crushed any belief system we had in place. Why, Solange? What did Jay Z say?! Why so still, Bey?!?
Is there some serious discord within the Carter-Knowles clan? Judging by a damning surveillance video, that could very well be the case. According to a report, Solange Knowles, also known as Beyonce‘s younger sister, was allegedly caught on tape trying beat down her brother-in-law, Jay Z.
