Beyoncé Talks Elevator Fiasco In "Flawless" Remix Featuring Nicki Minaj

Yesterday Beyoncé dropped a remix of her song "Flawless," on her website and brought her friend Nicki Minaj along for the ride! In the remix, Beyoncé rhymes about how "You wish I was your pound cake" and "You wish I was your baby mama" and other fun stuff. Then, she drops a little ditty about the elevator scandal, in which her sister Solange attacked Jay Z, that set the whole world ablaze:

We escalatin', up in this bitch like elevators
Of course sometimes shit goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator

I mean it's a very Beyoncé way of addressing the situation. She's talking about it, but she's not really saying that much about it. (It's basically a sassier version of the statement the Knowles-Carter family released after the Event.) The more telling part comes right after, when Bey cackles and then we hear the "ka-ching" of a cash register. Mhmm.

Jon Voight in very Jon Voight fashion, has penned a rather vociferous letter on Hollywood Reporter accusing Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem of inciting anti-Semitism after they signed a letter condemning the bombing of Palestinian civilians. In the letter, he gives a "history" of the Israel-Palestinian conflict, and then demands they hang their head in shame and "ask forgiveness from the suffering people in Israel."
