DANG.

Beyonce and Solange are always highlights of my MET Gala coverage, and this year was no different. Beyonce usually plays it a little more glam/safe and while this year’s peach Latex Givenchy gown was a lot like last year’s, it was still super swoon-worthy. She switched into a more comfortable pair of silver trousers and black vest as she joined her sister at the Balmain after-party, which again, is a Bey move Fo SHO.

Solange, on the other hand, is ALWAYS interesting. I LOVED her bright yellow David Laport dress with matching leggings and her after party tufted sweatsuit and clear heels. Not only was it interesting but it looked COMF AS HELL.

Another thing of note that happened with Solange was that she tweeted “Shout out to when you think you all ‘artsy and s–t’ , but your (sic) just rude and annoying lol,” wrote the DJ, presumably about someone in the event.

So who’s Solange throwing shade at? I’m guessing maybe Katy Perry, Taylor Swift or Kanye West. Who are your guesses?!

Jay-Z Supports Lemonade, Because $$$$

Of course.

Sure, halfway through Lemonade everyone thought Beyonce was announcing her divorce. BUT ALAS! At the end, she makes peace with Jay’s infidelities, and we can’t stop talking about it. But don’t feel badly- Beyonce wants us to! She wouldn’t have given us Lemonade if she didn’t want us to talk about her, analyze her relationship, talk about feminism, sex, identity. Which is what E! News decided to do. E! did a detailed analysis about what Lemonade says about Jay and Bey’s marriage and what this means going forward. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

Their marriage was in crisis in 2014: Their marriage was at breaking point and they were barely talking. A source says: “They had been having problems for years. There was a constant commitment issue between them and in the end they were barely speaking. Beyoncé didn’t fully trust Jay and it was hard for her to get past that. They went to a lot of counseling and have been working on their issues ever since. They had help to get them through it.”

The rumors about Rachel Roy & Jay-Z: An insider says: “It’s true, Rachel and Jay were friends and it wasn’t seen as appropriate by people who knew them.”

Why did Rachel Roy post that Instagram? “Rachel Roy wanted to defend herself after watching Beyoncé’s Lemonade,” a source close to Roy reveals, noting that her Instagram post was an “immediate reaction” to the singer’s visual album. Meanwhile, another insider adds, “Bey will never mention any names, but the people who those songs are about know.”

The Elevator Incident in 2014: “The fact everything became so public, it was embarrassing, and the first time she had to really deal with some of the questions people were asking about her marriage. It changed things. It was a pivotal moment.”

Jay supports Beyonce’s Lemonade: “He is fully supportive. He understands the reasoning. This is part of the process of being transparent. And they have healed. He has been very humble about the experience. Beyoncé is the love of his life and he will do what it takes.” Another insider adds, “Jay was involved in the creation of Lemonade and knew every song Bey was going to release. He knew the lyrics; he knew the implications. He had to approve the songs before release. Jay is a very smart businessman…Bottom line is that they are both really smart and they both saw dollar signs… Jay is all about self expression, so he gets it. Beyoncé shares music before it’s released with Jay so he can listen and share his thoughts. When it comes to music, they are very in it together and supportive of each other’s craft.”

Beyonce loves the reaction she’s gotten: “Beyoncé is amazed on how everything turned out. She worked day and night on this. She celebrated with family; Jay was by her side. When Beyoncé put this album together she was aware of the message she was sending out. She knew that people were going to dissect each word. Beyoncé wanted to connect with women’s emotions with this album.”

Their second chance: “They are going to be OK. This is round two. They are determined to make it work and we all believe they can do it.”

(Via E! News)

The sources E! News spoke to make it sound like Beyonce and Jay-Z are a lot stronger right now than they were two years ago BUT, you know, marriage is hard work especially when you have people throwing themselves at you like, pretty much always. And Bey and J know their brand…and they love the money that comes with that.

“Becky With The Good Hair” Is Lots Of Women

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala

Rita Ora, Rachel Roy…or kind of, all of them?

“Lemonade,” sources said “Becky” is a composite of women Jay Z was rumored to have had liaisons with earlier in his relationship with Beyonce…but everyone should HOLD UP because he’s since changed his ways.

An insider told Page Six: “I don’t think Beyoncé is calling out one girl. It is many girls. The rumors have been around for years.”

But apparently things changed when Blue Ivy was born in 2012.

Explained the source: “Beyoncé had the baby and was like, ‘What am I doing? This is what my dad did to my mom.’ She really looked at herself. Jay is now a great husband, and this is in the past. They went through a rocky patch but things are good again. The video is about finally coming to terms with her strength and their love.”

Meanwhile, other sources think that calling out someone was a deliberate play by the couple to drive sales.

The source said, just like the Bonnie and Clyde characters they created in 2002, “They develop these storylines to sell albums. ‘Lemonade’ is a movie crafted to drive sales. Jay and Beyoncé are entertainers at the top of their game. Do you think Jay would release her album on [his own] Tidal if it really was all about him? He is 100 percent behind this.”

Another insider added, “They’re marketing masters. They’re pros at this. The more attention, the more they sell, the better. All that speculation is to get press when they need it. ‘Lemonade’ is much deeper than infidelity, but that’s the focus. As long as people are talking, they don’t care.”

Page Six kind of has the right idea. This isn’t a project that’s driven the two apart- it’s one that they made together and part of a greater vision of their “Brand.” Kinda gross. IF ONLY IT WEREN’T SO GOOOOOOD!
