“I know [about Jedi mind trick] because we’ve done this before,” Knowles, who used to be his daughter’s manager, said.  “The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of times.”

When asked whether the couple was aware that the now infamous elevator fight between his youngest daughter Solange and Jay was being taped by closed circuit television, Knowles said “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it.  Tickets sales went up.  Solange’s album sales went up 200 percent!”

Wow…now this completely makes sense!!!!
