Solange Opens Up About Elevator Fight With Jay Z in Lucky Magazine Cover Story
Solange has been pretty mum about the infamous fight she had with Jay Z inside a hotel elevator in May. However, in the August issue of Lucky magazine, the 28-year-old singer opens up — sort of — about what happened that night.
Referring to the fight as “that thing,” she seemed to expect being asked about the scuffle she had with Jay in the elevator after the Met Gala in New York City.
“What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she told the magazine. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”
The songstress looks simply chic on the cover of the shopping magazine, wearing sky blue pleated slacks and a white sweatshirt with colored embellishments. She gushed about all of her fashion phases including the time she went goth as well as the time she would rock sweaters and tights in the middle of the Houston heat.
She also referred to Kelly Rowland as “a sister” who encouraged her to record an album. “Kelly’s like a sister. When I let her hear my music, she said, ‘I want you to write for my album.’ That gave me a lot of confidence,” she told the magazine.
Solange also delved into her love of travel, dance and what she learned from her parents. “I think about all of those phases that I went through and the ridicule and whatever that I experienced,” she said. “And I can’t think of one time where I ever felt like I was going to break. That’s because I had confidence instilled in me by my parents. They didn’t always like it — in fact, most of the time they didn’t — but they never asked me to change.”
