    yes honour a very violent woman who violently attacked her brother in law non stop in an elevator. if a man did what solange did to a woman will he be winning artist of the year today. no single backlash for solange’s boycotting, nothing. she didn’t even come out to apologise for behaving unruly. this is a mother of a boy. what kind of example is she setting for her child.

    look at chris Brown. he still can’t enter some countries. as talented as he is when last did his song or album reach number 1. after how many years people are still boycotting chris Brown. he has apologised several times he even went to prison but still his career is suffering. feminists una well done.

      You do have a point there looking at it from a superficial perspective. It does seem a double standard…..Violence is never the answer…..but we don’t know the backstory….and JayZ did not seek you or anyone’s defense.

      His response can be interpreted that he must be either a very self controlled gentleman or very guilty of something extremely provocating…..thank goodness he stood still because I’m sure one slap would’ve knocked her lanky self out…

      Either way, you need to grow up and get over your obsessive gender war. Men and women need each other and are not competing…..
