In case you had forgotten, this mortal world is just one big National Treasure-style adventure in which Beyoncé and her extended family leave various mysterious clues scattered around; our job as Not-Beyoncés is to make meaning from them so our lives feel purposeful.
Today in Beyoncé Secrets: the Internet is flipping out because Bey changed the lyrics in an unreleased song (“Resentment”) while performing in Ohio. DID BEYONCÉ JUST ADMIT THAT JAY Z CHEATED? wonders the Internet. Here are our clues:
The original lyrics are, “I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could/Been ridin’ with you for six years […] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me.”
The lyrics she performed are — with changes in bold, “I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like that wack bitch could/Been ridin’ with you fortwelve years […] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.“
Beyoncé and Jay Z have been married for twelve years now, which makes the time change ~significant~. But, like, what do we make of all the wedding and pregnancy footage they show during their concerts? Feeling so confused and lost. This world is a chaotic place, guys. [ONTD]
The Daily Mail says the lyrics refer to Mya, with whom Jay Z allegedly had an affair and whom he is allegedly financially supporting now, says a source. Ok! Sure! Everyone throw out your best guesses in the comment and maybe the Daily Mail will use you as a source next week. [Daily Mail]
