Singer Solange Knowles, younger sister of music star Beyoncé, acknowledged Monday but did not explain the widely publicized elevator surveillance video in May that showed her pummeling her brother-in-law Jay Z and continuing to kick him after being pulled away.

In an interview with Lucky magazine, Knowles, 28, refers to the May 5 incident at Manhattan's Standard Hotel after the Metropolitan Museum Gala as "that thing" and stops short of an explanation, saying only, "What's important is that my family and I are all good. What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that."

Days after TMZ.com posted the three-minute video, Beyoncé, 32, her husband Jay Z, 44, and Knowles released a statement saying in part that "our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."
