Watch Solange & Jay Z Explain Their Elevator Fight on ‘Saturday Night Live’
By Shannon Carlin
Solange and Jay Z already took responsibility for their individual roles in that elevator fight after the Met Gala by releasing a joint statement that left the actual details of the rift under wraps, choosing to only say, “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family.”
But last night (May 18) on Saturday Night Live, the two finally spoke out, giving some insight once and for all to what was actually happening in that hotel elevator.
With that burly bodyguard on standby, the two explained that everything’s cool between them and with God as her witness, Solange–played by Sasheer Zamata–promised she would never do anything to hurt her brother-in-law.
The two also brought a new version of the leaked video, which includes audio and puts new spin on the whole fight. See, really, Solange was just trying to get a spider off of Jay, who has arachnophobia. And that last kick at the end? Well, that was just a classic foot five. We’ve all done those, right?
