Beyonce's Dad Calls Elevator Incident A
Media Courtesy of
I mean, a lot of people have thought it.... But for her Dad to abrasively come out and claim that? Uh oh. While sitting down for a radio interview with Houston's 'Roula and Ryan Show', Matthew Knowles was of course asked about his famous daughter and son-in-law, Beyonce and Jay Z. Matthew is claiming that the MET Gala elevator incident (you all know the one) between Jay and sister-in-law Solange was a giant publicity stunt to drive ticket sales up for Bey and Jay'z "On the Run" tour. He said:

“[They needed something to] ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. A Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of the time. All I know is everyone is talking about it. Ticket sales went up,Solange‘s album sales went up 200 percent…” 

That's an interesting choice of words. Can we all remember that Matthew and Bey aren't exactly close, and she fired him as her manager. What do you guys think of what Matthew had to say?
