Matthew Knowles, the father of Beyoncé and Solange, claimed the now infamous elevator fight between Solange and Jay-Z in May 2014 was simply a publicity stunt.
Everyone was talking about Jay-Z and Solange's elevator fight at the Standard Hotel after the Met Gala in May. And that was exactly what they were aiming for, claims Solange and Beyoncé's dad Matthew Knowles.

Farrah Franklin, the forgotten fourth member of Destiny’s Child, found herself back in the spotlight on Sunday (July 20th) after being arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. If Franklin’s name doesn't sound too familiar that’s probably because she only spent five months alongside Beyonce and co back in 2000, meaning we hardly had any time to get know her.

She was taken in at 4.55AM and then released on Sunday morning, on a $280 bail. The exact incident which led to her arrest was not disclosed. Soon after the incident, Franklin posted an inspirational quote on Instagram, which may have been related to her legal misstep.

Are we all sufficiently in love with Destiny’s Child still? For those fans, who still live for the trio’s reunion, Michelle Williams just dropped the video to her latest, Jesus-praising song, Say Yes!
Michelle's new album, Journey to Freedom, is due out in September.
The video focuses on the feel-good tone and the message of unity, instead of the religious aspect of the song. It’s an endearing video, as Michelle, Beyonce and Kelly pop up in succession in their respective scenes, before the actual reunion takes place at what looks like a giant party towards the end.
