Wicked Wednesday. It’s a day full of wickeness, so why not start things off with Dame Dash‘s ex-wife playing a role in the Jay Z/Solange fight? With odd things still on your mind, did J. Lo really take time to speak on her big booty? It’s the playoffs but the real talk going on right now is the beef between Magic Johnson and Clippers owner Donald Sterling? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. What A Dame Shame
The Solange and Jay Z drama has only become more crazy since the footage came out earlier this week and now we can add Dame Dash to the mix. Well, Dame Dash’s ex-wife to be specific? Us Magazine has more info on the craziness:
The plot thickens! New details continue to emerge about the apparent elevator fight between Solange Knowles and Jay Z on May 5, the night of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in New York City. As previously reported, the “Losing You” singer, 27, had been fired up earlier in the evening and was seen yelling at designer Rachel Roy and her table companions during a Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room. The reason for her outburst is unclear — but an insider tells Us Weekly she mentioned her brother-in-law during the frenzy.
“Solange was yelling that anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” the source says of Beyonce’s younger sibling.
Things escalated from there. A second insider says Bey and Jay tried to get Solange to leave, which sparked the now-infamous elevator melee. “Jay said something small to her along the lines of, ‘You are out of line,'” the second source tells Us. “Solange was being a loudmouth and snapped at Jay trying to calm her down and get her out of there.” (Us Magazine)
Could the Rachel Roy screaming incident have really been the cause of the Solange elevator fight? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Here Comes Big Booty
Before we get too excited, J. Lo downplayed her own big booty and spoke on her song of the same name in an interview. Although we know it all comes back to her, J. Lo cut the edges on speaking on what really made her an idol in the hip-hop world. Rap-Up has the coverage:
People have been chatting about J.Lo’s famous assets for years. She even has a Diplo-produced song called “Big Booty” on her upcoming album A.K.A. “It’s a fun song and it’s about owning everything about you and who you are and embracing that,” she explained.
While she’s known for her voluptuous figure, she’s been given a run for her money lately. “It is normal compared to the gargantuan [butts],” laughed J.Lo.
But she has no problem being outshined in the booty department. “I am so fine with it,” she said. (Rap-Up)
Can you imagine the music video for this? There “has” to be a music video, right? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. When You Believe In Magic
Will there be a face-to-face showdown with Magic Johnson and Donald Sterling? Things are only getting crazier between these two and Johnson has come out to speak on Sterling’s recent jabs. Miss Info TV has the info:
We all heard the scathing things that Donald Sterling had to say about Magic Johnson in his first interview since the audio leaked. Like a lot of America, we sat in disbelief as the racist owner of the Clippers lashed out at MJ and stated that [Magic] wasn’t a good role model for the kids of L.A.
As despicable as his interview was, Magic had to react and offer rebuttals of his own. And the former NBA star also had some facts to back up his own efforts in African American Communities (Sterling said that MJ does nothing to help).
“That’s his opinion if he thinks I’m not a role model, that’s his own opinion,” Johnson told TMZ., before outlining the ways he’s helped minority communities with his foundation. “I’m a proud black man. I’m a leader in the black community and I take that role seriously,” he said. (Miss Info TV)
Will this all die down soon? Can anyone take Donald Sterling seriously? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
