Although it would be hysterical to watch Solange poke fun of herself on ‘Saturday Night Live’ with a sketch about her elevator attack on Jay Z, don’t expect to see it anytime soon. Beyonce’s little sister has no plans to spoof the incident ‘out of respect’ for her big sis, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Solange Knowles did consider “taking a jab at herself” on a SNL skit about her May 5 elevator fight with Jay Z. However, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she decided to follow Beyonce‘s wishes and downplay the whole incident instead.
Solange Knowles: Why She Won’t Spoof Elevator Attack On SNL
Jay Z and Beyonce have always been extremely hush-hush about their personal lives, so it makes sense that they would NOT be happy about Solange mocking herself on Saturday Night Live.
And with Solange seriously considering it, her sister begged and pleaded to change her mind. Fortunately for Beyonce, Solange seemed to respect her wishes.
“Out of respect for Beyonce, Solange will not be doing any spoofs whatsoever on her now famous elevator attack with Jay Z,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “At first, she actually considered taking a jab at herself to lighten up the incident, but Beyonce pleaded with her not to to draw any more attention to it.”
Solange’s rep also told us, “I can confirm that Solange is not appearing on Saturday Night Live.”
Too bad! It would have been fun to watch all of them do a skit! Then again, the skit probably would’ve hurt Beyonce, so we’re glad Solange put her family first in the end.
Jay Z: Did His Flirting With Rachel Roy Cause Elevator Brawl?
The whole fight between Solange and Jay Z in the elevator at the Standard Hotel on May 5 because Solange was fed up with Jay Z’s relationship with his close friend, Rachel Roy.
“Rachel Roy came up to [Solange] in a confrontational way earlier in the night,” another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Solange was defending Beyoncé in the elevator because Solange finds Jay’s friendship with Rachel to be WAY too close for comfort and it makes Solange very uncomfortable. Beyoncé also confronted Rachel and said, ‘Don’t talk to my sister like that,’ after [Rachel] confronted Solange.”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, should Solange mock the elevator fight on SNL. Would YOU have watched? Are YOU disappointed she decided not to poke fun at herself?
