If you're going to call your husband out for cheating on you, what better way to do it than in front of thousands of people? The rumor mill is working overtime after Beyonce changed the lyrics to her song "Resentment," which is all about having an unfaithful partner, while in Ohio on tour with hubby Jay Z.
The song chronicles one woman's emotional journey as she comes to terms with the fact that her partner has cheated on her. But there's one little line that Bey tweaked at a show on their "On the Run" tour that is making everyone question whether the Queen herself dealt with infidelity. This CAN'T happen to Beyonce, right?!
Beyonce wrote "Resentment" in 2006 for her second studio album, B'day. At the time, she and Jay Z had been dating for four years and she still had two years to go before she walked down the aisle. She has said she is extremely proud of the song and has never (of course) revealed whether the tune's lyrics were autobiographical in nature.
But then this happened: Bey donned a white wedding dress and veil and changed the lyrics to her song from "Been ridin' with you for six years. Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you?" TO "Been ridin' with you for 12 years ..."
And, uh, she and Jay Z have been together for 12 years, so ...
What the heck?! Considering how private Beyonce and Jay Z usually are when it comes to their relationship -- I mean, no one even saw a glimpse of her actual wedding dress until they played a sweet video from their wedding at one of their concerts -- I am going to say this rumor is NOT true. Judging by the audience's reaction after she sang the line -- yes, of course, it was captured on video -- these two KNEW it would make everyone wild. They are, at the end of the day, masters at garnering publicity.
Hmm ... on the other hand, there are SO MANY rumors about these two and the tensions between them while on tour. We've heard they may be staying in separate rooms. We've heard Jay Z has been cheating on his wife with R&B singer Mya for quite awhile. We've heard ... far too much.
Maybe Beyonce has just had it. Maybe this was her passive-aggressive way of letting the world know her husband has destroyed their relationship.
Only time will tell, I guess? For their beautiful little girl's sake, I hope they can work it out. Here's a video clip from the performance:
Do you think the fact that Beyonce changed the lyrics to her song proves that Jay Z was unfaithful?
