It’s “NEVER OK” for a Man (married or single) To Have a Side Chick


April 25, 2016 by The ReadyWriter

beyonce-lemonade-hbo-compressedI woke up to a flood of email messages this morning from blog readers and show listeners wondering what my thoughts and opinions were regarding Beyoncé’s new music “Lemonade”.

And based upon what I’m being schooled on is, Beyonce pouring out her frustration and bitterness in a collection of songs laced with lyrics of infidelity and deceit.

The gist of all the buzz is, Beyoncé’s husband of six years, rap mogul Jay Z cheated on her when she makes reference to Jay Z‘s mistress “Becky” in her song Sorry,” which ends with the line, “he better call Becky with the good hair.” Also referencing his mistress being a white woman.

The woman identified as Jay’s mistress is a fashion designer by the name of Rachel Roy. Roy is believed to be the catalyst behind Solange‘s (Beyoncé’s sister), infamous elevator assault on Jay Z in 2014. Surveillance video inside the elevator captured Solange wildly punching and kicking Jay Z as Beyonce stood by and watched with detached amusement.

My thoughts are #1, I can’t believe ‘good hair’ amongst women is still being referenced in 2016, along with the notion that women have to compete with white women for a man, their man or any man for that fact.

#2, That women are so damn desperate for a man, that they would actually think or accept it being ok for him to be with you and a side chick? What the fuck is wrong with women today? If he can’t  commit to you, kick his disloyal ass to the curb. Point, blank period!!

A male associate of mine said to me this morning, “Beyoncé is a strong woman to stay with Jay Z” Really? This has absolutely nothing to do with her strength but the message she’s sending to young woman regarding their self-worth. If you know he’s cheating and got a side chick, it’s not love it’s stupidity.

There you have it, my  2 cents and opinion on the matter..

    Damn Trace! You’s very matter a fact.

    SMDH…….Jay Z likes white and ethnic white and Beyoncé is the only black woman he would have married because she’s Beyoncé. Jay used to sleep with one of Puffy’s dancers a white Spanish chic with that Rachel Roy type look but whiter.

    Yep. Even King B is competing with whiter girls for her man. O_o

    great hair comes in all types and forms 😛 that’s right!!! Petty ass women


  5. Felicia says:

    Good afternoon all.
    Thank You Tracy I wanted to know your thoughts 🙂


  6. Cameo says:

    It boggles my mind that people still part their lips to say “good hair” or call a woman a “red bone” in 2016. Silly of me to think that we had evolved past certain things. SMDH

    I blame him. A wealthy famous man with a wealthy famous wife should not be sloppy or have a messy mistress all up in the public. His sloppyness is probably what pissed Bey off, not just the affair. I have heard some women say, “Please let him hurry up and get to his bish, he getting on my nerves”. Some married women can tolerate a manageable side chick. LOL!


  11. Bobby says:

    This is soooo fucked up. Beyoncé has been living with this burden since maybe 2014? Now we see who Drunk in Love was written to. Wives usually want to prove how freaky they are to outdo the mistress. Smh


  12. Keisha says:

    I like men and so far they like me too so I haven’t gotten desperate quite yet. I think the desperate women are the ones screwing the married men not the wife. If I am married I’m supposed to try and work through crisis situations. That does not mean it’s OK. But there are some people who do accept infidelity and that’s their choice.


  13. Yvonne says:

    Yeah but people are tired of hearing how no good Tyrone is. If you know he has a side chick you’re a bimbo who is desperate, ain’t no working shit out when you know he stabbing your ass in the back.


  14. 2Thick4you says:

    Lawd…..Lawd 😥 what is wrong with women of today? Loyalty is everything, so when do you kick him to the curb? When you get an incurable std? I’m just saying if you don’t respect yourself he sure as hail won’t!!!!!!!!


  15. Kayla says:

    The women of yesterday actually tolerated infidelity much more than today’s women who hype each other up over this fake, “Girl you don’t need a man” bullshit!!! when they are actually rotating partners like tires.

    Working through an affair is not the same thing as staying in a bad abusive marriage with a promiscuous spouse. If you have an honest relationship with your partner you would know if he/she cheated and you would make steps to work through it.

    The end result could be moving on, it could be staying. I just don’t see that as desperation. But please Check your stats on the women of yesterday and those of today. Back in the day women did not leave their husband for ANYTHING. You wouldn’t find out until the man died that he had all kinds of affairs and kids. Social media has put the sheets on display, but them sheets been dirty.

      Back in the day the women who stayed didn’t have the independence that a lot of women have today. The women who stayed were home makers with no income some of them. Beyoncé is rich and don’t have to tolerate the infidelity of any man. she can get her a nanny and chuck deuces to Jay Z and be OUT. This is about her ego and nothing else.


    • Yasha says:

      Women of yesterday didn’t tolerate shit, it’s just that they didn’t know. We have cell phones and social media to see who’s really being loyal nowadays. Look there’s no way around it if you know he’s cheating and got a side chick, it’s not love it’s stupidity like Ms. Bell just said and I agree.

    • Neesey says:

      I suppose the wife is the only woman who can’t work on a relationship with a cheater? Really? What about the side HOE?


  16. Rezzie says:

    Ladies and gentlemen, cheating is not a crisis. It is a choice.


  17. Princess says:

    It seems as if we have hit a all time low when it comes to relationships. Then the same woman downing single women be the same ones in fucked up situations, just to say they have a man. No thank you I’d rather stay single.


  18. Val says:

    I think “single” vs “married” women is tired like the natural hair debate. We are all women We should support each other. Some men cheat whether you are married to them or not. How you decide to deal with your relationship doesn’t make you desperate, weak, or in a “fucked’ up situation”. It’s makes you human. You work through it and then YOU decide, whether to stay or go.

    Let a woman cheat on a man, he wouldn’t think twice about leaving.


  20. Tamala says:

    Lol 😆 ppl swear they know facts through the media about Beyoncé and JayZ…. Y’all typing and talking shid like u really know the truth. Beyonce stay keeping y’all guessing and talking gotta give her that… From the haters to the fans. But she keeps her truth to herself. Music is art it’s meant to tickle your imagination from truth to fiction. But only the artist knows.


  21. Mrs says:

    The sins of the mother are visited upon the daughter. It happened to Tina and she stayed with her cheating husband for her children’s sake. Once her kids were grown she divorced Matty. Beyonce will do the same thing when her daughter is old enough to understand why she put Jay Z’s things on the curb.


    • Manup says:

      So Tina sinned because she stayed with Beyoncé’s cheating father? Fa real? Let me get tis str8 he cheated on her in the marriage but Tina the sinner? FOH


  22. Manup says:

    I have zero sympathy for women being mocked. If you know what he is about have enough love for yourself to leave


  23. Neesey says:

    The whole shit is pathetic! Far to many are OK with a side chick as long as she stays in her lane. Smh..uh ah


  24. Ashanti says:

    In this business you’ve got to take the bitter with the sweet she will do fine. I see Tamir’s mom got 6 million but no justice smh.


    • Bird says:

      Did she really get $6mil? That’s…. quite a bit of money. But like you said, no amount of money can replace the loss of your own child. That money is probably going to cause her even more problems, too. We all know how that story goes….


    • Ashanti says:

      Yeah they reached a settlement today


    • Civil says:

      Money is cheaper than justice. They rather pay than do right. It’s also is like telling the family …STOP expecting the right thing and since we paid you, go some where , sit down, and leave this alone.


  25. Bird says:

    They talkin bout this bitch on the news. I’m so tired of this song and the story. 😡 there is bigger shit happening. I mean seriously.


  26. Civil says:

    Beyoncé is expressing and addressing the rumors about her and Jay in her music what she won’t address initially. and her young stooped fans fighting for her on social media FOH with this BS

      Yeah Civil you right. she called the surrogate “talk” stupid and ridiculous and yet SHE can’t let it go. She got blasted for the “fuzzy” pics so now she makes this attempt? Why?? She obviously cares because she creates this fake perfection of her life but screwed up the pregnancy with the Aussie belly flop and continues damage control. Beyoncé would have posed bare bellied on every single magazine cover in the world if she was actually pregnant. Guaranteed, Beyonce will never have another child because she knows she could never get away with another fake pregnancy. Goes to show how perfectly orchestrated her image is. I don’t get why people fall for her nonsense. She preys on her brainwashed fans


    • QTip says:

      She doesn’t vent her problems on social media like other celebs, she put’s it in her music.

    That’s right! Now as far as this Beyoncé shit no comment


  28. Coco says:

    Beyonce oughta let that negro see his life flash before him give him the kiss of mediocrity, then send him on his way to be cared for by an average Bitch.


  29. Henrietta says:

    She ain’t going anywhere. Jay screwing someone else right. now.


  30. Ionna says:

    Wow!! I wasn’t going to watch it. I’m still trying to process losing our beloved Prince.


  31. Mittsey says:

    I’m going to start by saying I am no Beyonce fan. Super talented but musically, she has never moved me.


  32. Alscream says:

    Lol, 😆 this chick to me is so contrived and boring, booty shaking lost its appeal now she is using her business marriage to sell some records and a tour, can you say desperate, her fans are like zombies.


  33. QTip says:

    The “artistry”, in my opinion, is in convincing people that a woman who NEVER speaks to her private life is now suddenly writing an entire album about it and having them talk about her disfunctional relationship to others who are interested, or not – and marketing FOR her. As IF any song an artist sings is very personal… If so, did Adele REALLY get to the other side and had cell service? Was the rain really purple over there, and toxic, and Prince FINALLY succumbed to complications from it? Did Xscape EVER get any understanding? Did Jay Z go to the RIGHT, instead, and that’s why he’s still here for this new track? Did Ike and Tina ever EVER do anything, Nice… And Easy?

    Right before every single album this broad is either pregnant, getting a divorce, or her album is about her marriage… And y’all keep falling for it. Just like the music if it’s good (haven’t heard it yet), but stop trying to make Beyonce deeper than she is.


  34. RandomChick says:

    Lemonade allows her fans to see and feel what it’s like to love a serial cheater. Like her mother, she is determined to keep her family together, at least until Blue Ivy is grown and out of the house.


  35. Miss Ang says:

    Lol 😆 I honestly can’t believe anything anymore. Just another publicity stunt. Folks always fall for the distraction.


  36. Pinky says:

    Tracy who asked you to address this mess?


  37. Sane says:

    Dayum Trace and who better to have an opinion than you. especially regarding infidelity.


  38. Bird says:

    Beyoncé lying to sell records. knowing damn well she and Jay ain’t ova
