As the days go on, I feel like there will be an even longer version than the one below
. Oh, or there will be lost footage or something like that with commentary. In the longer version, there is extended yelling by Solange directed towards Jay-Z. During that entire period, Beyonce just stands there and Jay-Z basically stands as far away as he can get in the corner. Solange and Jay-Z clearly have been arguing before they step on the elevator. Something which should also be noted is the bodyguard is Beyonce's bodyguard and not Jay-Z's. I always found it odd they hire their own bodyguards who are only loyal to their personal employer. Several times her bodyguard speaks into his microphone to alert someone about their status. The announcements are so short that I doubt he is saying anything about the fight.
When everyone does finally reach the bottom floor, that last kick from Solange appears to be after Jay told her to get her game face on because the world was going to be watching. Maybe that is why Beyonce is so quiet during the whole thing. She thinks that someone will see her if she starts yelling or that she might tear her dress.
Yes, Solange has had a drug problem and she could be wasted. She did yell at Rachel Roy earlier in the night. The thing is though I feel like there must have been some provocation. Something was said or done or Solange saw someone that triggered the entire episode. If Beyonce thought Solange was in the wrong do you think she would have joined Solange and let Jay-Z go off by himself? Last night Jay and Beyonce showed up at the Nets-Heat game because that is what they do. They keep their brand going and act as if nothing bad ever happens between them.
