WHY AM I SO INTO CHRIS EVAN’S BRO-Y FRAT BOY LOOK HELP
I am so tired of these things.
not that i actually like jay-z’s verse in an otherwise near-flawless album but here’s an article from the root attempting to explain it:
Because there have been so many essays taking Jay Z to task since Beyoncé’s album was released in December, I’m well-versed in the argument that his lyrics, joking or not, go too far. But the hype is just that.
Jay Z is in no way condoning domestic abuse on that verse. He’s drunk-talking—hence the song’s title—to his wife, who has been playfully trash-talking to him. By the middle of the verse, he, too, is talking trash about what he’s going to do to her sexually—and, most important, with her consent. I mean, she’s drunk-giggling in the background of the video as he talks drunk mess on a song called “Drunk in Love.” If his wife is fine with him talking about rough sex, what is the problem here?
Is an Ike Turner allusion the best choice? No. But in context, there’s nothing to see here, folks. Drunk married people are playfully saying drunk words to each other—he even says, “I’m nice,” i.e., drunk—right before they “surfboard.”
I know that drunk Beyoncé is a little jarring for some, but at 32, if she wants to get drunk and then be “filthy” with her husband, that’s her adult and wifely right to do so—and her prerogative to sing about it, even at the Grammys, because she’s a “Grown Woman.” (source)
so no i’m not a fan of the lyric either but i don’t think she condones domestic abuse. and in the last decade with beyoncé and recently with blue ivy, jay-z has at least admitted that he does regret some of his past lyrics and attitudes (which i think he wouldn’t have done without meeting someone like beyoncé)
even zeus made mistakes, no god is perfect
