In honor of the entirely overexposed and overblown story about Beyonce’s sister Solange physically attacking her brother-in-law, Jay Z, in an elevator after a party earlier this week — a scene caught on security video — the Huffington Post has compiled this list of eight other elevator incidents — celebrity and otherwise — you might not know about. They range from the truly interesting (Daryl Hall and John Oates met in an elevator while trying to escape a gang melee in Philadelphia) to the just plain gross (I will not elaborate).
