Unsolved Mysteries: Solange v. Jay Z

I usually try NOT to blog about all the celeb scandal & rumors, but there’s no denying that there is some beef between Solange and her sister Beyonce’s husband Jay Z. Here’s a few of the headlines:

There were countless others, but the premise under every one was that Solange had attacked Jay Z. My personal favorite (the philosophical approach):

Beyonce, Solange and the Insane Complexity of Sisters and Marriage 

So before I go into any comment check out the video below. There was a longer version (via TMZ), but has since been deleted. I fill in details, but the video below sums up everything.

So this altercation took place after the Met Gala (May 5) and there’s no denying that Solange did in fact attack Jay Z yet no one knows why. There was a ‘fake’ tweet, and I say fake due to how many likes/retweets, that was supposedly from Solange.

unnamed

Had that been an ACTUAL tweet it surely would have gotten more retweets, not just 18. Of course the ‘tweet’ is no longer on Solange’s page.

When it comes to the personal lives of celebrities, fans can become so engrossed and think that they personally know they person enough to judge. Regardless of how much MONEY a celeb has that does not make them any less human than the average person that works 9-5.

First off one wouldn’t think that these two are having problems as they are sitting court side at the Nets playoff games, vacationing, and preparing for their first tour (‘On The Run‘) together. What made this so ‘newsworthy’ was that the lives of Jay Z and Beyoncé are so private that all you see is the perfection and supposed sexual innuendoes when the paparazzi catches them on vacation. There’s no problems between them. He loves her, she loves him, the family gets along, they have a beautiful daughter, etc. People IDOLIZE them as individuals and as a couple and from what I’ve seen, based on what they present to fans, it’s worth the admiration. The question is, what would make Solange tick to the point that she’s slapping, kicking, and supposedly spiting at her brother-in-law?

Rumor has it that Jay Z is supposedly hitting on Beyoncé  which is where the tweet stemmed from and the other is that a close ‘insider’ stated that Solange doesn’t like how controlling Jay Z is over her sisters life. Another one is that Beyoncé and Jay Z are set to be getting a divorce and that Beyoncé has had the ‘IV’ tattoo on her ring finger removed. In many pictures it’s there and then it’s not there. At the Met Ball it was there, but on the cover of Time it was not. Could be Photoshop, makeup, airbrush, a combination of the 3, who knows. If you look closely at the pic from the Nets game it doesn’t seem to be that way although another picture surfaced and she had tape around her finger. Two things there, touchup or it could be removal. I think she just uses makeup to do what she wants with it.

I mean as close as Bey and her sister are I’m not surprised that Solange would step up to defend, if necessary, her big sis. Was Jay Z’s ‘controlling’ ways worth all the drama in the elevator?

Well whatever happened in that elevator only 4 people know: Beyoncé , Jay Z, Solange, and the bodyguard Julius. There’s no audio on the video and as much as I dislike TMZ this right here is pretty accurate. This is no spoof. It’s clear of who was in the video. It’s clear that Beyoncé stood on the sidelines and watched the fight happen. It’s clear that Jay Z refrained from any further altercation with her although in the beginning he was pushing Solange back and grabbed her leg before she could land anymore kicks.  In the end of the video he was pointing to his head as in a motion for Solange to ‘think’ about what she was saying. Beyoncé was on her way out the elevator with Julius in front with Jay Z behind her and Solange took that as an opportunity to throw another hit.

Deep down people root on Beyoncé  and Jay Z yet at the same time would love to see their demise. There’s no such thing as couple in love, successful, and happy. It’s just too good to be true. Granted I’m not saying there relationship is perfect, but there’s people that have seen this video and are thinking one of two things:

  1. ‘Oh no! Not Jay & Bey!’ (Insert sad emoji)
  2. ‘I knew it was too good to be true. Looks like trouble in paradise.’ (insert laughing emojis)

Then there’s the people that claim they don’t care and that it’s their business, but even I find this story interesting and yes I’m interested in some type of update. Specifically the audio.

My personal opinion is that no matter how mad Solange was that was no reason for her to attack Jay Z like she did because that’s exactly what she did. No this is not me standing up for #TeamJayonce v. #Team Solange. It’s clearly what’s right and what’s wrong. Had Jay Z put his hands on her, although he was provoked, not only would his entire image be tarnished, but he would be hypocritical of his dislike towards Chris Brown after his altercation with Rihanna. Just stating facts. No situation should ever result in violence and Solange could have handled the situation differently, but clearly it was anger that caused her to do what she did. A whole lot of anger. Was the video entertaining to watch? Yes. Were Solange’s actions justified? Who knows. Did she have a right to put hands on Jay Z? Regardless of what he did, said, etc., no she did not.

The only way to clear up the rumor and to not make accusations would be to HEAR what was said. We can hope that maybe a statement would be released. Yeah, who knows if that will happen either. Only time will tell if that will happen, but in the meantime you can re-watch the video and guess the dialogue based off the body language or take the comedic approach and like all the memes on Instagram.

Sunday Rant (V.9): MMF Update

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Sunday Rant. This one is just another MMF update. I’m back on track with my schedule and I have some new editions and ideas that I’m excited to share here on the blog this Spring. I will most definitely be doing more networking and getting ready to collab with other interested bloggers. Here’s my schedule as of right now:

  • Motivational Mondays
  • New Music Tuesdays
  • Wellness Wednesdays
  • Throwback Thursdays
  • Fashion Forward Fridays
  • Spicy Saturdays
  • Sunday Rants

For the most part I have stuck to that schedule. I have been doing a lot of music news as of late, but no worries I will continue with the original content. Music is posted on a daily basis as for beauty/fashion that’s primarily on Fridays/Saturdays. A new series I will be adding on Sundays is called Original v. Cover where I will be comparing one song, the original and cover version. From there I will be picking my fav from the two. First up in that installment is A Great Big World’s, ‘Say Something’ followed by Beyonce’s ‘Drunk In Love.’

The entire month of April I will be breaking down some of the categories, voted on by the fans, for the iHeart Radio Awards which will air in May. My favorite category is Best Song Lyrics so that one will be up first.

Also, expect more home decor and ideas from various rooms in my home.

I’m excited for whats to come with this blog and I have no plans of slowing down. Stay tuned for DAILY POSTS!

Sunday Rant (V.2): Lazy to Productive

It’s 8:03pm (notice I like to timestamp events in my life) and I’m just getting around to putting up my rant. It’s before midnight so it’s fine. I’m just determined to get up a blog post EVERY DAY! Today I woke up fairly early and I’ve finally got my sleep schedule back on a routine.

I spent the beginning part of my day editing my blog’s archive (which is almost finished), but then I looked around my room and saw how messy it was. It’s hard to work in mess no matter how much you try to look around it, or sit on top of it. I decided to clean my room.

In the midst of cleaning I decided to work on some blog posts. There goes the distraction and procrastination of cleaning my room. The sun was still out and I wanted to get some posts done with natural lighting. Stay tuned for those! After getting all my photos done I was able to clean my room and so some laundry. I try to do most of my work on the weekends because after working anywhere from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday I’m tired and all I want to do when I get home is shower, eat, and watch my favorite shows.

SPEAKING OF, my winter will be filled with episodes of Law & Order: SVU (still not the same without Stabler), Criminal Minds, NCIS: Los Angeles, Pretty Little Liars, Netflix,WWE (yes I’m a wrestling fan), and my personal fav YouTube!

I get a lot of inspiration for YouTube whether it’s an incentive to go buy the latest product, DIY ideas, tutorials, hauls, and my new fav vlogs, I love them all. As for the WWE I will soon be canceling my Netflix Account and signing up for the WWE Newtork ($10/month). Yeah it’s a $2 increase in my ‘budget’, but all the perks with the WWE Network are so worth it.

As for my night I’ll be looking on Instagram & Google to see who won at the Golden Globes, editing & creating more blog posts for  the upcoming weeks, and getting into my magazines of the moment.

Hope you all had a productive Sunday, and cheers to a productive week.

Until next time…
