The Jay Z/Solange Elevator Incident
I can't talk about pop culture news this week without mentioning The Elevator Incident. TMZ released security footage of Jay Z, Beyonce, and Beyonce's sister, Solange, in a hotel elevator during the Met Gala. In the video, Solange physically attacks Jay Z (and because of this, if you somehow haven't seen the video yet, I'd warn you not to watch if you're sensitive to violence). It would be newsworthy if something like this leaked and it involved any celebrity, but because this involved Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange, it seemed like every single person in the world had something to say. Cue theories about what went down and why! However, Beyonce and co. have already released an official statement essentially saying: we're over it, and you should be, too.
Earlier this week, a video started making the rounds showing a heroic cat who saved a 4-year-old boy from being attacked by a neighbor's dog. Jeremy was outside playing on his bike when he was attacked; his cat, Tara, rushed outside and scared the other animal away, preventing the boy from any further injury. Jeremy and Tara — who has been dubbed Hero Cat in the media — were interviewed on several talk shows to tell their tale. Tara and family have even been invited to throw out the first pitch at a local baseball game on May 20. I say Tara deserves a nice bowl of tuna for being such a good little hero.
You probably already love Bryan Cranston, but this video of him during a press junket for "Godzilla" will make you love him even more. In anticipation of the film, which is released in theaters today, Cranston spoke with a Fandango interviewer about his co-star Godzilla — and he didn't hold back. Cranston called Godzilla a "total jerk" and said he doesn't like him at all. Seriously, Godzilla, get it together — you don't want to make Walter White angry.
What were you talking about this week? Any weird theories as to what went down during Elevatorgate '14?
