Miss Solange strikes a pose and keeps her mouth shut.

On the infamous elevator ride: Family is a centering force for Knowles—and she speaks of wanting to expand hers once the new album is finished. The day we’re talking in the park is two weeks after TMZ published a leaked elevator video of Knowles getting into an altercation with brother-in-law Jay-Z the night of the Met ball at the Standard Hotel. It’s a subject she expects in conversation but one she doesn’t want to focus on. She calls the incident “that thing.” “What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she says. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”
The pics are cute. She can work these sort of ’80s-by-way-of-the-’60s bright, pop styles. But let’s face it: all anyone cares about is her non-answer regarding that footage of her beating up on Jay-Z. We like her ability to cooly answer the question without actually answering the question. That takes some skill. And to be honest, we thought the media fascination with that incident got a little overblown. Sure, the footage was juicy and we were all dying to know what it was about, but our celebrity criticisms tend to center around “Be me or do me“-style attention seeking stunts. This really was a family matter that inadvertently wound up in front of the eyes of the world. Good for her for basically saying, “We’re all good here and that’s all you’re getting on the matter.”
Besides, mysterious non-answers are ever so much better for the image, darling. Keep them guessing.
