Some dancers, video vixens, sleep with artistes for jobs – Dancer, Beyonce

Nigerian professional dancer and choreographer, Elizabeth Joseph, aka ‘Beyonce’, may not be a household name, but her face has been very popular in the videos of top artistes, because she’s highly skilled and talented at her craft. In an exclusive chat with Showtime, Beyonce who is currently recovering from a fatal motorcycle accident which occurred on the 3rd of May 2017 along Third Mainland Bridge while hurrying for a music video shoot on the island revealed that some professional dancers actually sleep with artistes just to dance in their music videos. She condemned dancers who perpetrate such act just to secure a job.

“Yeah, some do it because they are desperate and want to be in all videos; so in that case they sell their body to directors and artistes just to be known. But you who know what you’ve got won’t be desperate; rather you’ll be focused, prayerful and work hard to achieve your dream as a world super star dancer. As a pro dancer that knows what she has, she doesn’t need to sleep with any artiste or director to get jobs because of what you have in you”, she said.

She went further to condemn nudity, a trend which has become very prevalent in music videos of Nigerian artistes. “Nudity in music videos has caused controversy since the late 1970s, and several explicit videos have either been censored or banned. Nudity has gained wider acceptance in music videos, the audience view nudity and sensuality as less objectionable than the depiction of void. But in contrast, the flagrant display of nudity is what actually helps to sell the video, contrary to popular opinion that talent, originality and creativity should”, she mused.

JAY-Z Breaks Silence About Infamous Elevator Fight With Beyonce's Sister Solange

JAY-Z finally opened up about his controversial and violent clash with Beyonce's sister Solange at the 2014 Met Gala party.

On Friday, the 47-year-old rap mogul discussed different issues in his life and career during an hour-long podcast interview with the Rap Radar. JAY-Z did not hold back in sharing his side of the story, including the infamous elevator fight with Solange.

Although the rapper did not give specific details on what sparked the argument and how it escalated to a physical fight, he confirmed that it was the only time they had a disagreement and haven't fought since.

The father of three also reiterated that he's always had a great relationship with his wife's sister, adding that Solange is not just his sister-in-law but her sister.

“We've had one disagreement. Before and after, we've been cool. That's my sister. Not my sister-in-law, no, my sister. Period.”

Proving that the elevator fight with Solange was already a thing of the past, JAY-Z quipped about the incident during the interview and expressed his admiration to his sister-in-law's music.

“I think we went into the elevator as great artists. I've always loved Solange's music; I thought she was slept on until this last album [“A Seat at the Table.”] I think Bey made an incredible album before, a hundred of them.”

To recall, JAY-Z and Solange were engaged in a physical altercation while inside an elevator. According to reports, the trio attended a Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel in New York when it all went down.

In a surveillance video obtained by TMZ, Solange can be seen ferociously attacking JAY-Z, wildly kicking and swinging at him inside the elevator. Beyonce can also be seen standing next to the rapper without getting physically involved.

The fight became so intense that a bodyguard had to step in and hold back Solange, who continues to strike JAY-Z. The rapper, on the other hand, did not attempt to strike her back.

Eventually, the group exits the elevator and leaves the venue — Beyonce and Solange in the same car while security walks JAY-Z in a different one.

To this date, it remains unclear what really caused the violent fight. Despite the lack of information, Beyonce did address the incident by releasing a statement, claiming that the “family has worked through it.”

Beyonce even brought up the controversial feud in the remix version of her hit song “Flawless,” saying, “Of course, sometimes s— go down when there's $1 billion on an elevator.”

JAY-Z also appeared to make a public apology to Solange on his new song “Kill Jay Z.”
