Beyoncé's Sister Solange Attacks Jay-Z in an Elevator is our Generation's Zapruder Film

By Courtney Enlow | Celebrities Are Better than You | May 12, 2014 | Comments ()


“Sip THIS from your cup till it runneth over, bitch!”

According to TMZ, this happened at a Met Gala after party. I bet Goopsters wishes she’d been there now (“I’ll save you, my only black friends! I took a Krav Maga class with Stella McCartney once!”)

In the video … Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator … and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.

A large man — who appears to be a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.

A) I desperately want to know what instigated this because Solange is a fancy hipster fairy creature.


B) Her Beyness standing there very “let them just work this out” is everything.

C) I need more and I need audio. Immediately.

Of course the internet is internetting and coming up with the backstory for this, largely that Jay-Z must have been disrespectful toward Beyoncé and Solange was acting as protector. Who knows (though I’m pretty sure Queen B can take care of herself). The only answer is a trial by jury of Blue Ivy and her famous babyfriends. Suri Cruise for jury foreperson.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Jezzer

    I kind of thought she might have some issues when she scalped Roseanne Roseannadanna and wore it as a trophy.


  • Davis

    It's funny how everyone is either laughing at Jay-Z or defending this deranged violent mentally person, imagine if the roles were reversed.

  • Ricky, Bubbles & Julian

    Super classy behavior while wearing formalwear

  • e jerry powell

    I was hoping that Solange would go all whoop-ass on Donald Trump...

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Maybe she's mad because Jay-Z, rightfully, told her her dress was fugs.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I would hope that Solange would be reacting in such a fashion because he's disrespectful to HER. It seems wildly out of bounds to hit someone's husband because he's rude to her, even if the someone is your sister.

  • e jerry powell

    And Solange being the younger sister, no less.

  • Vince

    It's wildly out of bounds to hit ANYONE because they are rude. The only time it's appropriate to hit someone is if you are defending someone else from physical violence.

  • Kate the Greatest

    I dunno. I had a verbally/emotionally abusive boyfriend several years back who I hit/scratched because he was screaming in my face, calling me names, and relentlessly belittling me for over an hour. He wouldn't let me get away from him, and so I lashed out and clawed his face. He wound up bloodied and called in sick to work. When they were horrified at what I'd done, he said "You didn't hear what I said to her."

    No, it's not right to resort to violence unless you have to. But sometimes you have to. If I were screaming in someone's face, I would expect nothing less.

  • I dunno, I've jacked a dude in the jaw for being rude before. He was being disrespectful to a lady and I warned him if he didn't knock it off, I'd thump him. He didn't, so I which point he removed himself from my establishment and therefore ceased to be my problem.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, yeah. That's pretty true. I can imagine slapping a guy on the chest, not with intent to injure, if I had a familiar relationship with him and he was being rude. But your way is righter.

  • Finance_Nerd

    My wife playfully hits my arm often (usually deserved) and my standard reply is, "It's always "the violence" first w/you. Didn't your parents teach you to use your words. Use your words." Her reply is often "Fuck off." We've been married 8 yrs this month. :)

  • emmalita

    Although I've been tempted, super, super tempted to beat the crap out of a friend's SO. I believe at one point I greeted him with, "do not think that just because I'm not armed that I'm happy to see you." But it is better not to use violence.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I'm gonna steal that line. It sounds so Texan. Something I can imagine Reba McEntire saying. In fact, I think it should be a country song.

  • John W

    Can I get a WTF!

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Sibling rivalry? Or maybe she is just cray cray.

  • Helo

    So, that's 100 problems now...

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Maybe she finally got around to listening to Magna Carta Holy Grail. I felt similarly my first time.

  • cruzzercruz

    I was already laughing at Beyonce and Jay-Z just standing there, arms at their sides, while Solange kicked him in the stomach. But once I saw the bodyguard frantically tapping the elevator button with this girl flailing under one of his arms, I knew I had found my favorite video of today.

  • Alberto Cox Délano

    1) There'll be no audio, it's just CCTV.
    2) The Beygency will be taking measures shortly.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    "Off with their heads!"

  • JJ

    "I need more and I need audio. Immediately."

    You need an internet break. Immediately.

  • Mrs. Julien

    a. This is none of my business.
    b. I watched it anyway.
    c. Twice. Thrice.
    d. When people react that calmly to an outburst, I assume that it is something they are accustomed to.
    e. Wow.
    f. It's still none of my business.
