Postie Perspectives: Ridiculous news of the week

Jay-Z physically assaulted by Beyoncé’s sister

What exactly sets a person over the edge? Is it perhaps when a long-term partner cheats on you? Is it the death of someone close? Is it finals week?

When you put three famous people into an elevator, what do you get? This isn’t a joke, I’m legitimately curious. The problems don’t come from fame, they come from family. When you put cranky relatives together, then you better be prepared for a fight. Move over Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment, your sister’s bringing the smack down.

Now I know what you’re thinking, why is Beyoncé’s clearly more talented, more famous sister Solange giving Jay-Z a lesson in the form of a whooping? Let’s analyze the situation.

Solange Knowles is an adamant force to be reckoned with in the music industry. She has all these singles I can name off the top of my head like that one that didn’t feature Beyoncé and that other one named… that song with that beat. Solange is the successful one. Everyone knows this; there is no debating the situation. So where is this ferocity coming from? Is she channeling her inner non-existent singles in the form of an attack? Did she want her first hit to be with Jay-Z? The world may never know.

As time passes, the headlines get more and more outlandish. What’s next, Chris Brown doesn’t violate his probation? The next season of Game of Thrones has zero character deaths? Oakland University gets a legitimate parking situation? When will the madness subside?

In all honesty, I wish these rich people with all that money the best. Not that rich people can’t have problems. Well, no I take that back, they can’t.
