We have to hand it to SNL. After a few years of questionable comedy, the show has been redeeming itself lately. Last week they had viewers taking extra caution not to say Beyonce’s name in vain for fear of The Beygency. Last night’s episode gave the official lowdown on just why the elevator altercation went down between sister Solange and Jay-Z, with an appearance from someone whom we feel doesn’t nearly get enough credit, Julius The Bodyguard.
Comedienne Sasheer Zamata played “Solange”, Jay Pharaoh did an uncanny mimic of “Jay-Z” and Keenan Thompson got a few laughs as “Julius”. Even Maya Rudolph makes an appearance as the Queen Bey herself to put on blast The Standard security guard who leaked the surveillance video.
You’ll never guess why the assault went down. It all makes so much sense now. Peep the clip below:
