The highly-publicized incident that occurred between Solange and Jay Z in May is finally addressed by Solange in a new interview with Variety magazine. The 28-year-old singer-songwriter is reserved and diplomatic in her statement given to Variety, but this does mark the first time she has spoken publicly about the now-notorious elevator assault. Variety Deputy Editor Leigh Belz Ray writes the following about Solange’s comments regarding the incident:

Family is a centering force for Knowles—and she speaks of wanting to expand hers once the new album is finished. The day we’re talking in the park is two weeks after TMZ published a leaked elevator video of Knowles getting into an altercation with brother-in-law Jay Z the night of the Met ball at the Standard Hotel. It’s a subject she expects in conversation but one she doesn’t want to focus on. She calls the incident “that thing.” “What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she says. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”
