Leave it to Jay-Z & Beyonce to turn lemons into lemonade (Get it?) The power couple celebrated Jay’s 48th birthday on Monday night in New York City, where they headed downtown to the movies where they saw Woody Allen’s crime drama, Wonder Wheel, & spent a night on the town after. The two were clearly in a good mood as they managed to poke fun at themselves thanks to a well-timed elevator ride. Photogs were ready & waiting for them as the elevator doors opened for them to walk out onto the street. Apparently, Jay-Z asked their bodyguard to get out of the elevator as the two quickly posed for the cameras, a clear reference to Jay-Z’s infamous elevator fight with Solange Knowles after the 2014 Met Gala. “Hurry up. C’mon up—get it,” the rapper instructed the paps, urging them to get the shot before the two ultimately exited and headed for their car. The elevator scuffle was never explained to the public, as Jay & Bey have always been private, although a rep for the family released a statement saying that they had “worked through” their issues. “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred” and “acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public,” the statement read. The three publicly vowed to move forward as a “united family.” Years later, Jay-Z addressed the scandal in his 2017 track, “Kill Jay-Z,” rapping, “You egged Solange on / Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong / You almost went Eric Benét.” “Let the baddest girl in the world get away / I don’t even know what else to say / N—a, never go Eric Benét.” 3 years later, the baddest girl in the game is still standing next to Jay, taking elevator rides.
