If you've been anywhere near the Internet in the past 48 hours, you've no doubt heard the angry buzzing of the Bey Hive.
But in case you've been living in a cave with really crappy wi-fi for the last couple days, allow us to fill you in:
Beyonce seems to have called Jay Z out for cheating in some of the lyrics from her new "visual album," Lemonade.
This isn't a case of fans reading too much into a few cryptic lines. The album contains lyrics like:
- "If you try this sh-t again you gon’ lose your wife."
- "He only want me when I'm not there. He better call Becky with the good hair."
- "Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks."
Sounds pretty straightforward, and it's not hard to see why some folks took it as a full-blown accusation.
But the situation may not be as cut-and-dried as it initially seems.
For one thing, Bey's obsessive fans can't agree on the identity of "Becky with the good hair."
Some say Jay was sleeping with Rachel Roy.
Others believe Rita Ora was the side chick in question.
Whatever the case, the Jigga Man himself is surprisingly cool with what appears to be the public meltdown of his marriage.
One insider tells Hollywood Life that Beyonce never cleared her lyrics with her husband, but Jay fully supported her venting her frustrations in song form:
“Beyonce didn’t get Jay Z’s approval to release the album," says the source.
"She was set to release with or without his blessings. If venting via her songs can help save their marriage, then he fully supports her. He wasn’t about to put up a fight on this.”
Hmmm...somehow that actually makes Jay sound more guilty.
He doesn't strike us as the type of dude that would be cool with being made to look like a dog to millions of people if he hadn't actually been caught effing up in a big way.
What's really unfortunate is the way his alleged cheating partners are taking the brunt of Bey's accusations.
Time to ease up, Bey Hive. We're pretty sure Mrs. Carter would not approve.
