So here I am, on this fine Monday evening (May 12, 2014), trying to get through my “off” day and do what I do online and in social media. All fucking day all I see on Facebook is the word or name “Solange”. So I asked myself, “What or who is this “Solange” thing or person which so many people are talking about?”
I looked at the word/name “Solange” a few times before realizing that I probably am pronouncing it wrong. So I did what a few other people have probably done and Google’d it. Come to find out that it’s a name – of a female – the sister to recording artist Beyoncé – and her name is Solange Knowles. (I still can’t pronounce the name.) So I checked further to find out why her name is trending the web, the media and the attention of so many people on Facebook. I should have stopped the moment I learned that she was related to Beyoncé but I didn’t. Stupid me. You see, I am not a Beyoncé fan nor am I one of Jay Z (aka Sean Carter). I don’t know those people and their public and personal lives aren’t worth the turd of shit I dropped in the toilet this morning. Those people simply have no bearing on my life. Yet, I just had to find out why these people captured the attention of the media, the web and many of my friends on Facebook. Well, I learned that supposedly, someone possibly identified as being Solange and someone possibly identified as Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z got into some physical altercation on an elevator. I watch the 3:31 silent TMZ video as I asked myself, “Why are people concerned with this?” “Who the fuck cares what these wealthy people do?”
I just couldn’t believe…no, wait; That’s not true; I suppose by now that I DO believe that there are people whose day simply isn’t completely made until they’ve seen the negative aspects of some celebrity. I shake my head at this kind of mess and kick my ass for even bothering to waste a fraction of my time watching a three and a half-minute silent video of people in an elevator being…well, people! Perhaps, had that been a video of some extremely important people fussing and fighting, say President Obama and Michelle or Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles for instance, who were having a fuss then perhaps I could understand the interest and this article might be moot.
And no readers; I will NOT post that piece of shit in this article! You’ve got everything you need in this rant to find that video online (if you haven’t seen it already) and look at it yourself! I’d strongly advise against making that search. You’ll thank me (unless of course, you ARE the type of person whose toes I’m stomping all over right now).
So I must ask: “Who the fuck is Jay Z, Beyoncé or that Solange person in the grand scheme of running this country and/or this world?” Those people are not world leaders, world religious leaders or famous doctors or philosophers known to make a difference in the world. Why are so many people focused on the personal lives of people like the Knowles and the Carters – or with any celebrity?
Someone needs to explain to me – in the clearest of detail, why anyone should give a flying fuck about what those people – or any celebrity for that matter, does on a personal or private basis. Celebrity gossip website TMZ gets a hold of something like the video I’m discussing, posts it online and people just…salivate! I don’t understand it; all I know is that I hate it!
