Jay-Z Still Calling Women Bitches: Right or Wrong?

by at . Comments

Last week, a report surfaced that in light of the birth of his daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z would no longer be referring to women as bitches in his lyrics.

The story was met with universal praise. Too bad it was false.

Jay-Z personally told the New York Daily News that the story was fake. While he did not formally announce that he will continue to call women bitches, by denying the contrary, implicitly, the message is that he may continue to do so at will.

The words attributed to Jay-Z may have been fake, but the response of countless fans to what they thought was his change of direction was still very real.

Is it wrong for the new father to continue to use the word "bitch" (among other more choice words)? When Blue's mom is such a champion of strong girls?

Jay is far from the only rapper to face such criticism, of course.

Eminem, a father of multiple daughters, has defiantly said that music is art and his lyrics are not a reflection of him as a person or the way he treats women.

Still, for a lyrical maestro like Jay, would anyone object if he omitted a few degrading terms? Should he be expected to, considering what his craft is?

You tell us: Is it okay for Jay-Z to call women bitches?

@Kadenze, men like jayz you never pay them no mind. Why be so upset when most of our men are being stereotyping to us black women? I don't hate my brother's, i just think it crazy to hang on to some type of nasty bitter from our black men. It is not never the other race of women fault. Cause we both know that most of our men talk from the side of their neck and be lying to other race of women about us. Whenever run into one of our black man, if he start commenting that us black women always have nasty attitude, let him have that battle. Black men will always stereotype us black women. Look at kobe, he is getting what all coming to him. And whenever come across a ignorant women on a website, let them have that crazy battle.

To be real, alot of women can act like bitches when apear to have a very bad attitude. The thing is, i do have a female dog and i dont want to call her bitch when that who my dog is. Even tho im a black woman, i would like for our men not to call us bitches. Because they should know that they was not born from a bitch, why call female women that? Jayz have a baby girl and by now he should know how to respect other women. So that just tell you alot about jayz and what kind of nutt he can be. That goes to all other men too, for using the word bitch to all women.

what a load of SHIT, now that he has a baby is where the line is drawn? If anything that makes me think he's a bigger peace of shit than i thought he was. what about the respect for his wife? generalizing all women as bitches is the most ignorant thing i've ever heard as much as it is for a woman to refer to all men as assholes. what a douche bag, if he had any respect for his wife or for his mother he would never refer to women as "bitches" in a general ignorant statement.. i know some women are bitches, but this is just making many think now that he had absolutely no respect at all for women (including the women in his life he supposedly loves) until his daughter was born.? what a load of it, he can fuck off with dat BS.

@LMK so what if some women act like real bitches??? That doesn't mean he should call them bitches!!! Do women walk on four legs?? I think not. Jay-Z has no right calling women bitches who is he to judge?????

Jay-Z has a daughter now he should open his bloody eyes and realize that by referring to women as bitches someday when his kid grows older she to would be referred to as a bitch. There's many husbands/boyfriends that probably hates Jay-Z language towards women so I'd say if Jay-Z respected his wife and kid he'd shut that black hole that he calls mouth!!!!!!

People are assuming he's calling ALL women bitches. He doesn't refer to his wife that way and I'm sure he doesn't call his daughter baby bitch. There are some women who have no self-respect and act like bitches, why should he avoid the truth? There are bitches in the world. And why would you take it personally if you aren't one?
