Solange Knowles Totally Fine, "Engaging" at Vulture Festival Concert After Jay Z Fight
Solange Knowles knows how to put on a good show—in more ways than one. The "Losing You" singer, 27, showed no signs of distress on Saturday, May 10, when she performed in NYC as part of New York Magazine's first-ever Vulture Festival, just days after her elevator melee with brother-in-law Jay Z.
Wearing a shiny red-and-green top with yellow shorts and printed stiletto booties, Beyonce's younger sister took the stage at Webster Hall to open the concert, a joint show with rapper M.I.A. During her set—which featured songs from her 2008 album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams and her 2012 EP True—she was lively and energetic, a source tells Us Weekly.
"She was fine—you never would have known anything was happening," the insider says of the star. "She didn't do press, but that's not really out of the ordinary for a performance like that...She was awesome and engaging with the crowd."
The sexy single mom's composed, fun-loving stage persona is in stark contrast to the version of her seen in surveillance video from the Standard Hotel on the night of the Met Gala. On Monday, May 12—one week after the big fashion event—TMZ posted leaked footage from an elevator at the Standard, in which Solange can be seen kicking and swinging her arms at Jay Z.
"Solange has flipped her lid like that before," an insider previously told Us of the fight. "She is genuinely a sweet and nice person, but she also keeps s--t real. She can take a small thing and it triggers her."
