We may never know the real reason why Solange attacked Jay Z, but over the weekend Saturday Night Live gave us a fake reason. The opening sketch featured Jay Z (Jay Pharoah) and Solange (Sasheer Zamata) explaining why the fight went down after the Met Gala, with the rapper’s bodyguard (Kenan Thompson) standing by just in case Solange decided to pop off again.
After explaining that they’ve made up, the two introduced the clip with audio. The video showed that Solange was actually trying to save Jay Z from a spider.
“Oh my God, there’s a spider on you,” Solange said.
Jay Z asked her to “kick it” to get rid of it, then added, “Thanks again for that help with the spider … I got arachnophobia.”
At the end of the sketch, Beyoncé makes an appearance in a surprise cameo by former “SNL” star Maya Rudolph.
“If you think I condone this invasion of privacy … then you must not know ’bout me,” she said, quoting her song “Irreplaceable.”
