Two months after the now-infamous elevator incident between Solange and Jay Z, the 28-year-old songstress is speaking out for the first time about the fight, but she isn’t saying much.
The singer sat down for an interview with Lucky for the fashion magazine’s August 2014 issue, just two weeks after TMZ leaked security camera footage showing Solange fighting Jay Z while in an elevator at New York City’s Standard Hotel after the Met Gala in May. In the clip, she can be seen hitting and kicking her brother-in-law while Beyonce stands idly by.
While speaking with Lucky, Solange refers to the fight as “that thing.” Although she expects the topic to come up in conversation, she brushes it aside.
“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 family released a joint statement to the Associated Press on May 15, saying that their family is like any other.
“Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family,” the statement read, in part.
“At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different,” the statement continued. “We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”
“We’ve always held each other down no matter what,” Solange tells Lucky. “That’s something I’m drilling into Julez now.”
