I'm not going to lie. This post is mostly an excuse to once again watch the amazing footage of Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law, Jay Z, after the Met Gala. I know every single red-blooded American watched it at least three times yesterday (once when the news broke on TMZ, once when the extended footage came out, and once later to point out to your friends how Beyonce just stood there) but it will never be enough. Join me, won't you?
Bliss. Anyway, apparently Solange was on a bit of a tear all evening. Earlier at the same Met Gala afterparty at The Standard hotel, Solange yelled at designer Rachel Roy, sources told Us Weekly. One source says Beyonce "got in the middle of" her sister's fracas with Roy; another source said Roy was just one of a group Solange harangued.
This still doesn't tell us what had Solange so riled up. One of the great tragedies of my life is that we will probably never know the truth about what was going on here. Little tidbits like these will never paint the whole picture, and the Jay/Bey PR machine is just too powerful to let the real story out. I guess the only comfort we have in these troubled times is to watch the footage again.
