Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Solange Enjoy Family Time in New Orleans

Beyoncé, Jay Z, Tina Knowles, and Solange

Family comes first. Amidst last week’s drama, the Carters and Knowles spent some quality time together in New Orleans over the weekend.

According to TMZ, Beyoncé and Jay Z dined with Solange at Café Amelie for more than two hours on Saturday.

They reportedly arrived in three SUVs with heavy security. A team of bodyguards waited outside to make sure no photographers got a shot of them, but Beyoncé has shared some photos from their get together.

Bey, Jay, Solange, and Tina Knowles were all smiles as they posed together for a family portrait. With their arms around each other, Bey and her little sis snapped a pic and Jay hung out with Solange’s son Julez and her boyfriend Alan Ferguson. Blue Ivy, photographed from the back, was also by her mother’s side.

After video surfaced of Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator, the family released a joint statement. “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different,” they said. “We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

‘SNL’ Spoofs Jay Z and Solange Elevator Fight

SNL Spoof

Following last week’s “Beygency” skit, “Saturday Night Live” couldn’t resist poking fun at the infamous elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange. Jay Pharoah played Hov and Sasheer Zamata took on Solange as they explained the reason behind the post-Met Gala incident while a bodyguard (Keenan Thompson) nervously stood by.

According to them, the real reason Solange attacked her brother-in-law was because Jay had a spider on him. They voiced over the surveillance footage that leaked on TMZ last week.

“SNL” alum Maya Rudolph returned to reprise her role as Beyoncé, doing a hilarious impression of Queen Bey.

They also got some sweet revenge on the Standard Hotel employee who leaked the video, showing footage of him digging his butt, kissing himself in the mirror, and trying to breakdance.

Watch “SNL” have some fun at their expense.

Sisterly Love: Beyoncé Shows Support for Solange on Instagram

Solange and Beyoncé

Family comes first. In the midst of their public scandal, Beyoncé is showing support for her sister Solange. Bey posted four throwback photos of her and her little sis on Instagram, days after a surveillance video surfaced of Solange physically attacking Jay Z. The Knowles sisters look perfectly happy as they cozy up in the various snapshots taken throughout the years.

It was rumored that Solange removed photos of her and Bey from Instagram, but BuzzFeed says that is not true. There are still photos of the sisters on Solange’s Saint Records account. Only one of them with Lupita Nyong’o at the Met Gala was removed, but it’s unclear when.

TMZ reported that Jay Z and Solange were spotted at a jewelry store in New York on Tuesday, but Solange’s rep says she was not in NYC.

Neither Solange, Bey, nor Jay Z has spoken out since the drama unfolded, but the Carters did appear at the Nets game on Monday after the story broke.

Solange Attacks Jay Z in an Elevator

Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Solange

File this under strange. Jay Z was violently attacked by his sister-in-law Solange inside an elevator at a Met Gala after-party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC.

TMZ has obtained surveillance footage from the bizarre incident.

Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Solange step into the elevator. Solange can be seen screaming at Jay before physically assaulting him, kicking and swinging at him.

A bodyguard attempts to hold her back, but she manages to land a kick before Jay grabs her foot. Meanwhile, Beyoncé stands back and eventually gets in the middle of them to block the fight.

At one point, the bodyguard hits the emergency switch on the 12th floor to stop the elevator from opening.

It’s unclear what triggered the fight. The photo above was taken as they left the party, and Solange is clearly not happy.

UPDATE: Watch the full three-and-a-half-minute clip of the wild fight below.

New Music: Chromeo f/ Solange – ‘Lost on the Way Home’

White Women

While she readies her next album, Solange reunites with Chromeo on “Lost on the Way Home” for the duo’s fourth album White Women. Following their 2010 collaboration “When the Night Falls,” the trio rekindles their chemistry on the ’80s electro-funk record.

“Dave and P are seriously some of the sweetest and most genuine, talented dudes I know…just good people,” said Solange. “When they played the instrumental for ‘Lost on the Way,’ I immediately knew that was the jam and I wrote the melodies and lyrics to my parts super fast and recorded it that night. It flowed really organically, and working with them always feels that way.”

The entire album is now available to stream on iTunes in advance of its May 12 release.

Listen to their infectious duet below.
