Let’s be honest, the 2014 elevator brawl between Jay Z and Solange will go down in history as one of the most epic moments of any Met Gala — past and probably future.
But just like most dramatic entertainment stories, our conditioned minds threw the elevator showdown to the back of our brains, leaving it there to sit until we absolutely need to reference it again — That reference, by the way, happened Monday night.
Solange’s mama, Tina Lawson, managed to remind us all what went down the night that Solange attacked Jay in the elevator of New York hotel following the gala. Here’s how:
In efforts to share with fans a sweet moment between Solange, her son, and Jay, Tina posted a snapshot of the trio on Instagram, but here’s the catch. The captured moment was in an elevator. Oops.
Tina clearly realized what frenzy she was starting by posting the image, so she quickly deleted it from her page.
To refresh your memory, Solange and Jay famously got into a heated exchange that was captured by elevator security footage. It never was confirmed what the fight was about; however, it was rumored that it had something to do with the relationship between designer Rachel Roy and Jay.
Rachel, by the way, is the same woman who foolishly suggested she was “Becky with the good hair,” the woman Beyonce sings about in her track “Sorry,” from her latest album, Lemonade.
Following the incident, the family released a statement to the Associated Press, suggesting that Jay and Solange both take responsibility for the “unfortunate incident” and that “families have problems and we’re no different.” They also made sure to state, “we’ve put this behind us.”
OK — we can now put the brawl in the back of our heads again.
Tiffany Haddish’s Hilarious Speech At Model Chanel Iman’s Wedding
Tiffany Haddish is one helluva lively and colorful human; so it’s not exactly shocking that she turned what would be considered a traditional wedding speech into a whelp … Haddish speech.
Just one night before hilariously taking the stage at the Oscars alongside Maya Rudolph, the Girls Trip star delivered an epic speech at the wedding of model, Chanel Iman, and New York Giant star, Sterling Shepard.
Although giving a seemingly witty speech, she also made an appoint to talk about how special her relationship was with Chanel, whom she met on the set of Mad Families. “I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one cause I can see his soul,” Tiffany said, according to Brides.com.
The actress continued, “I looked into his eyeballs when you brought him to the comedy club. That’s a good man….[To Sterling] You better worship the ground she walk on cause she’s got a gangster ass bitch that got her back. Sorry, pastor!”
Haddish then went on to give some important advice. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”
According to Chanel, the two grew close on set, mainly because they wound up sharing a trailer together. “During filming, I didn’t have a trailer so she was kind enough to share hers with me,” Chanel told Brides.com. “So for a month, we were sharing a trailer and going over lines together. We laughed, we cried, we bonded. She’s like a big sister to me.”
Chanel and Sterling exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
