All the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

Solange has spoken out about her ‘elevator incident’ with Jay Z back in May. She didn’t say very much, however.

In an interview with US women’s magazine Lucky, she referred to the fight as “that thing”:

What’s important is that my family and I are all good. What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.

All is well in the Knowles camp. Good to know. (Hollywood Life)

…Or maybe not. The Knowles’ sisters father, Matthew, has been hit with ANOTHER paternity suit. A Texas model claims the former Destiny’s Child manager is the father of her daughter, born in 2010.

Taylor Swift has penned an essay on the future of music for the Wall Street Journal. In the optimistic op-ed, Taylor says the album format will not die any time soon, and decries the ‘shock tactics’ used by so many entertainers:

I think forming a bond with fans in the future will come in the form of constantly providing them with the element of surprise. No, I did not say ‘shock’, I said ‘surprise’.

Wonder who she’s referring to there? Hmm. (Wall Street Journal)
