SNL Parodies Solange Beatdown & Michael Sam Kiss

In: Donovan, TV Shows
snl-solange-parody

Saturday Night Live can sometimes be at the mercy of a slow news week. The comedy gods were extremely generous to SNL this week with plenty of hilarious topics for the show to work with.

For its season finale hosted by Andy Samberg, the late-night show tackled two of the previous week’s juiciest stories- Solange’s elevator attack on Jay-Z and Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after learning he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Check out both sketches below which features plenty of returning SNL alums including Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and more. The voiceovers by Solange and Jay-Z during the elevator footage is everything. Apparently a pesky spider was all to blame.

It’s not like Beyonce and Jay-Z needed to heavily promote their upcoming joint On The Run tour. A simple tweet would’ve sold out multiple arenas. Being the visual person that Bey is, she surprised her fans yet again by dropping a stunning promo video. Given the unwanted attention her family squabble has been receiving, shifting conversation to a more professional matter is probably desired.

Directed by Melina Matsoukas, who helmed Bey’s “Pretty Hurts,” the four-minute clip thematically plays on the Carter’s first collaboration, “’03 Bonnie & Clyde.” Appearing in the video are Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Díaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones.

The production is top notch. It plays like a trailer for a big budget summer blockbuster. Only thing is, this is one movie we’re never going to see… or will we? I wouldn’t put it past Bey to release a surprise movie. Check out the clip below.

Days after that wonderfully entertaining video of Solange Knowles beating up Jay-Z surfaced, Beyonce has finally broken her silence. It’s about time girl. I’m still shocked the “Drunk In Love” singer stood there silently in the elevator while little sis went bat shit crazy on her husband.

In an exclusive statement to the Associated Press, Beyonce says they have worked through their differences and have moved on. She goes on to say that “families have problems and we’re no different.”

Unfortunately, the statement doesn’t actually reveal what started the fight. I don’t think we will ever know. You have to assume it’s something pretty big for Solange to delete every picture featuring Beyonce on her Instagram account. Today however, she posted an adorable pic from their childhood for #TBT. Check out the photo below, along with the full statement by Beyonce.

OH SH$T GURLLLL!!! Don’t ever piss off Solange Knowles. Girl has some fire in her. Beyonce’s little sister goes ratchety hoodrat at Jay-Z inside an elevator at a Met Ball after-party. The beatdown goes on for a little while before Solange is physically restrained by another man which I assume is a bodyguard.

Where’s Bey doing all this? Watching quietly on the sidelines of course. I’m curious to know why she didn’t attempt to stop little sis. With no audio in play, it’s difficult to figure out exactly how the fight started but it escalates pretty quickly. Maybe she’s angry for not being included on Bey and Jay-Z’s joint tour ;) Props to Jay-Z for not reacting to a clearly hyped up Solange.

Thanks to TMZ, the footage from the surveillance video from the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District was obtained. I’m curious to know how much they paid for the footage. Check it out below.

In honor of Black Music Month, Ebony magazine is issuing four collectible covers with a different musical superstar gracing each one. The publication pays tribute to them for their “unprecedented impact on black music.”

Not surprisingly given her remarkable year, Beyonce snags one and earns the title of ‘Diva.’ Her other half, hubby Jay-Z, scored a cover as well with the ‘Mogul’ moniker. Rounding out the four are Rihanna and Kanye West with the titles of ‘Rebel’ and ‘Poet’ respectively.

Inside the issue, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and Prince are also honored, along with icons of years past, including Tina Turner, Tupac, and Donna Summer. The issue hits newsstands on Tuesday. Check out the rest of the covers below.

“It was an honor to write the four cover stories for EBONY magazine’s Black Music Month special collector’s edition,” said music writer Kevin Powell. “Rarely do you see today’s unstoppable stars like Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye West and Jay Z packaged with legends like Tina Turner, Donna Summer or Tupac Shakur, but we did it because when it comes to Black music, it is important to note the deep connection between the musicians of yesterday and today.”

After weeks of rumors, Beyonce’s joint tour with her husband Jay-Z is officially on. Dubbed On The Run Tour, the married couple will hit 16 cities beginning on June 25 in Miami and ending in San Francisco on August 5. Access to tickets will be granted the morning of April 29 to Beyonce fan club members and Chase cardholders. The general public will have to wait until May 2 on LiveNation.

I’m curious what the logistics of the show will be like. Will each have their own set with duets sprinkled in between. If that is the case, which collabos will they pick? While everyone knows “Drunk In Love” and “Crazy In Love,” Mr. Mrs. have joined forces plenty more times. Check them all out below and weigh in on which are your favorites.

Beyonce Teases New Drunk In Love Music Video

Forget the surfboart, its all about the lasso for Beyonce these days. The 32-year-old singer heads to dry land wearing chaps, a cowboy hat and other western garb for a “Drunk In Love” remix video. Bey swaps out hubby Jay-Z for Kanye West on the new version. Keeping in line with the racy theme of the track, Mr. Kim Kardashian appropriately raps about a sexual position. Care to take any guesses given the theme? Give yourself a gold star if you predicted ‘reverse cowgirl.’ Check out the teaser below.

The 56th Grammy Awards Winners & Performances

The French duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, better known as Daft Punk, triumphed over Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and countless others by taking home some of the night’s biggest awards. They snatched up Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album and the very prestigious Album of the Year. Not bad for a duo who never showed their faces or spoke a single word during the telecast.

Lorde also capped off a remarkable year by winning Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Given her impressive haul, one would think Best New Artist would’ve been a foregone conclusion. That didn’t happen. The Kiwi singer wasn’t even nominated in that category. Instead, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis snatch that coveted accolade.

Speaking of the Seattle-based rap duo, they gave the most memorable performance of the evening. They were joined by Mary Lambert and Madonna during a special rendition of “Same Love” that incorporated Madge’s classic tune, “Open Your Heart.” In the middle of the epic collaboration, Queen Latifah officiated 33 couples getting married. The newlyweds included all creeds, colors and sexualities. It was so moving, it made Keith Urban and other audience members cry. Props to the Grammys for taking a very public and very televised stand for marriage equality.

Other notable performances include Miranda Lambert teaming up with Billie Joe Armstrong, Sara Bareilles with Carole King, Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Hunter Hayes and Taylor Swift. Even though we’ve all seen P!nk suspended in mid-air, twirling around in ropes before I enjoyed her medley of “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason.” Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off the marathon telecast with a sexy live performance of “Drunk In Love.” It was captivatingly simple. Check it out below along with other performances and the list of winners.
