Solange Knowles graces the cover of the August issue of Lucky Magazine and speaks out for the first time about the infamous elevator brawl with Jay Z. Solange downplays the incident saying in Lucky Magazine:
"What's important is that my family and I are all good.. What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.."
(In case you forgot, this was the statement: "At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different," they said May 15. "We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.")
Regarding famous sis Beyonce Solange says:
"We've always held each other down no matter what.. That's something I'm drilling into [my son] Juelz now.. I think about all of those phases that I went through, and the ridicule and whatever that I experienced. And I can't think of one time where I ever felt like I was going to break. That's because I had confidence instilled in me by my parents. They didn't always like it—in fact, most of the time they didn't—but they never asked me to change."
Sounds like Solange wants to let it go and never talk about it again. WHat do you think of what she had to say?
