The biggest celebrities in the most elaborate formal wear. Here’s quite the gallery featuring KimYe, The Carters, Common, John Legend & Chrissy Teigen, Rihanna, Cassie & Diddy, FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson, Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union, Justin Bieber, Solange, and oh yeah J. Lo. Based on the Twitter volume I perused, Beyonce seems to be the big winner and I agree, she definitely killed. Also that Wizard of Oz meme on Rihanna’s dress. So it’s a draw.
Also, lowkey this is perfect.
The Met Gala is one of those events that I don’t really understand that I also refuse to Google to learn more about
Janelle Monae sports a new look for her new video for the title track to her last album. Solange guests and the video also contains cameos from T.I., Estelle, Monica, T-Boz, and more. Enjoy, ladies and gents.
Oh yeah, Chris Tucker weighs in on the Jay Z / Solange fight also. He does his impressions of Solange and Jay’s fighting styles and reveals what Beyonce was thinking during all this. A different, and equally hilarious take on the situation to SNL’s spoof from over the weekend.
We finally get official word about the most-talked about gossip hip hop story this week: Solange’s Street Fighter moment vs. Jay Z in an elevator. Of course, said official word is your usual politically correct mumbo jumbo that doesn’t answer the question we all want to know: what the hell set off Solange?
As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it,” an exclusive statement to The Associated Press read Thursday. “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.
Props to NBA on TNT’s Gone Fishin’ of the Brooklyn Nets last night, that I’m giving 100% credit to for being the spark to ignite an official statement to the AP. Also for being hilarious.
Solange brought great energetic vibes to the FADER Fort stage at SXSW last week. What’s cool about Solange is that her music has this revamped for modern times 80’s pop and 90’s R&B inspired sound from her beats to lyrics (a little David Byrne sounding). And her attire, wearing a Pencey Spring 2013 suit jacket and dress pant (which was a collaboration with artist DJ Mia Moretti) was an ideal fit that paired well with the vibe of her music.
Here’s my personal favorite song of hers, “Losing You”. It’s the song that rebranded her into the indie industry – creating a more authentic place for herself and her music choice.
Plus, The FADER Fort always has a great stage and lighting and that adds to the concert experience. Their own lighting designer caught our compliment on Instagram! We’ll have our own original video of Solange (and more artists) from FADER Fort at SXSW — stay tuned!

TIBS ED. NOTE: We also got a shoutout from Solange herself! Jodeci was backstage and talked with her after the set. Solange shouted Jodeci and her friends on Twitter, showing love back to her fans. Gotta love her humble and giving spirit as well!
