HOORAY, I MADE THIS THREAD WORSE
LOOK AT ME
and more like a horribly bullying cunt :(
i know he does the whole justtrollingguize with impunity but sometimes you can just hear the sneer leaping off the OP and it gets me something chronic
to how 1950s housewives branded their world tours.
i think it will be practically impossible for me to find it again
She can do whatever the fuck she likes.
"I was longing to brand myself with his (her husband's) name for a very long time. He’s a living legend and to be his wife is the greatest honour," DiS went in to meldown.
Beyonce makes Mensch look like an amateur when it comes to voluntary subservience to the patriarchy. Especially when it comes to 'branding' yourself with your husband's name.
Is a DiS meltdown like a twitter storm? Both extremely tedious.
Beyonce (to my knowledge) hasn't made a horrifically gushy accompanying statement, that makes her look like a total tool. I'm one of the few people on here that will admit to having any time for Bagshawe, but what she said about being BRANDED, urgh, made me sick in my mouth.
but I'd assume she'll have interviews coming up and will be asked 'why Mrs Carter?' It will be interesting to hear what she says.
I think she's done it because her life has obviously changed a lot in the last year or so. She's had a baby and that would have brought her closer to her husband so she probably feels like its a nice change for her to have a tour named after him. I can't see Jay-Z having a Mr Carter tour...or a Mr Beyonce Knowles tour.
and that's why in other parts of the world where families are large there is less breast cancer. i can't remember the woman's name. she was all about science and maths and something to do with oxford university and was the australian women chess champion in the 60s or something
look at all that letters after her name!
Older women can certainly get health benefits from later pregnancies. At least, that's what I've heard a few times.
Also, sex (not really wanking though) is ludicrously good for your health.
Like it or not, we're all about the sex and reproduction. It's what we're made for. The endlessly spread the genes about with a kinda existential abandon.
Question: Tell me what you think about me
I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings
Only ring your celly when I'm feelin' lonely
When it's all over, please get up and leave
Gets met with TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME.
she wants to display that she's more than global-superstar-sensation-and-million-record-selling Beyonce, but still the same person, and also to promote the idea of a family or something?
But idk, the best person to ask is Beyonce, I reckon.
Especially since Destiny's Child performed together recently, who most people will remember as girls.
But, y'know, whatever, I'm not Beyonce.
maybe what is truly feminist is that Beyonce can chose to have or not to have her husband's name, and title herself as desired.
I mean, after all, Knowles is her father's name, which her mother took.
Cheryl Cole has basically stolen Ashley's name
Not that she deserved it...
as divorced women still keep their ex-husband's name. I think. I THINK (might be wrong).
But I'd argue it's a stage name so she can call herself what she likes. So you're right.
THE FUCKING THIEF.
I mean, they don't 'get' it from marriage in the first place, they get it from legally changing their surname. They only revert to their pre-marital surname if they choose to legally change it back.
My mother has never changed her back. She used to say it was as she didn't want my sister and I to suffer the stigma that comes with having a primary parent with a different surname. I imagine now it's because she can't be bothered.
All I know is I hate all women equally, regardless of what they choose to call themselves
Rewarded by pulling icon of fierce female independence.
Let's face it, God made this entire planet just for him to twat about on.
i'll give you that
But dead kids ain't one
He is pretty misogynistic though, even if there are worse, and most of the others don't have the platform Jay-Z does.
I eagerly await the sample lyrics that completely negate how vile the content of tracks like 99 Problems and Big Pimpin’ are.
’LOL’ and ’ahhahaahahahh’ aren't really counter-arguments.
I mean, it's obvious that you don't, but I'll humour you with a discussion in full sentences anyway. You can start by explaining how exactly 99 Problems and Big Pimpin' are "vile", with reference to the fact that you claim to be an Odd Future fan.
You didn't just put them on your profile to look cool?
Yes I like OF, I like 99 Problems and Big Pimpin for that matter. Whether the lyrical content is pleasant or not doesn't factor into my enjoyment of them at all, regardless of what I think of the personal morals of who makes them. My point was that Jay-Z is now married to a widely accepted icon of female empowerment, which is ironic and a further example of people not facing the consequences of doing bad things in life. Surely only a moron would accept that Jay-Z is not guilty of making misogynistic music, and his profile means his messages are spread far and wide.
-----Soon Jay-Z was onto bigger deals. He and his crew traveled up and down the East Coast, sourcing and unloading drugs. Jay-Z recounts the time, in 1994, when he was driving down I-95. He had a stash of crack in a fake compartment in the sunroof of his Maxima when he got pulled over by cops for “no good reason.” The police knew they couldn’t search his car without probable cause, so they called the K-9 unit — the dogs would be able to sniff out the drugs. But the unit didn’t show up, and the cops had to let him go. A minute later, he saw the K-9 unit speeding down the highway in the other direction, but too late — he was already home free. It’s a moment he would later recount in his 2004 hit song, “99 Problems” with the lyric: “I got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one.” At the time, Jay-Z was slammed for the misogynistic use of the word “bitch” — but, as he reveals in his book, he was actually referring to a female dog, or the dogs that never caught up to him that day. “It would have changed my life if that dog had been a few seconds faster,” he writes.-----
as we all know, the preceding lyric is of course: If you're having dog problems i feel bad for you son.
Definitely not a lie.
The immediately preceding line is 'If you're having girl problems ...'
I suppose Big Pimpin is meant to be ironic, too.
Since I'm here, might was well link up my favorite Jay track (which happens to be one of his most misogynistic):
that's what rappers do
is that line not just directly lifted from ice t's 99 problems?
and changed the meaning. Ice-Ts version is about 600% more misogynist.
No argument there. Your hysterical opening line made it look like you hadn't actually listened to the songs you're talking about, but I realise now it's just standard messageboard hyperbole. Objection cheerfully withdrawn.
I think the press photos announcing her tour are more bothersome, dressed up as some kind of Victorian royalty asshole. Some ego huh? Doesn't help that her and her husband are 2 of the most overpaid, over-glorified entertainers in a while.
I do not get this insult
but the important thing is that you acknowledged it was an insult.
I love Beyonce though and that doesn't change.
please pass away
I don't really wish death on either of them
