It’s been almost two months since Solange was caught putting major paws on Mr. Carter in an elevator at the Standard Hotel after the Met Gala. Mr. and Mrs. Carter and Solange released a statement saying that “the family has worked through it” and Beyonce and Jay-Z debuted a conveniently dangerous looking “On The Run” teaser after the ordeal. We haven’t heard from an individual source of the brawl, but now, 2 months later, sister Solange is speaking about it. Thanks to Lucky Magazine, Solange is breaking her silence to the mag about the incident, and a host of other juicy life details.
Of course, Solange is not spilling all the juice about what happened that night in the elevator that set the media on a scavenger hunt for answers, she does share this: “What’s important is that my family and I are all good. What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.” Solange tells Lucky Magazine.
Solange goes on to share more information about her new EP coming out. “ The music is changing… My last EP, True, was about the overall vibe. The message was fun. This one, I really want you to hear what I’m saying. I want you to hear me.” This is great news. Solange is a very talented and eclectic artist and hearing some new and different music from her is what we all need from her. She also shares a lot of candid memories of being different growing up and making very interesting fashion choices.
She further shares her version of being a solo artist and why she had to take a step back from the music scene. Solange shares, “I was serious about my songwriting but not necessarily too gung ho on all the other elements of being an artist—the public nature of things, the lack of privacy, the feeling of always needing to be on. I also felt really misunderstood by my peers and the musical landscape that I was in,”.
