Jay Z Called A ‘Poor Excuse For A Husband’
Mainstream America hasn’t stopped buzzing about Beyonce and Jay Z’s racy performance at the 2014 Grammys. So far, Beyonce’s been labeled a “wh*re” by the UK newspaper Metro and apparently, it’s Jay Z’s turn to brave the fire. The NY Post called the “Magna Carter” rapper a “poor excuse for a husband” and questioned how any man could watch his wife perform scantily clad.
“What do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?
I’m certain if I look through enough Jay Z song titles, I’ll come up with the right name for his role in Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. Rhymes with Goodyear. . . ? Well, how about I just call him a poor excuse for a husband,” he wrote.
It wasn’t surprising to see Jay Z, looking pleased at his wife’s hyper-sexualized exhibition on stage.” After all, “he’s made a living singing lyrics that call women ‘bitches’ and ‘hos,’ so we shouldn’t be surprised that he objectified his own wife on stage.
What we can’t understand is why people are so invested in criticizing Beyonce and Jay Z’s marriage. If it’s one thing we’ve learned, every relationship is different and should not be judged. What works to John may not work for Shawn and vice versa. Perhaps we should spend a little less time writing drawn out articles shaming The Carter’s and worry about our own relationships and children. Or nah?
