“Even Beyonce got cheated on, so who do you think you are?”
We have all heard and seen people posting things as such and it was a much more popular phrase when Beyonce’s album Lemonade was released last year (2016). It is quite saddening that people actually engraved it in their minds and hearts that Beyonce got cheated on hence at any day, they can get cheated on too. I want to explore the logic of this belief so lets get right into it.
Lemonade is said to be Beyonce’s comeback to Jayz’s unfaithfulness towards her. Jayz apparently cheated on her with Rachel Roy – well known as “Becky with the good hair”. If this is entirely true, how would Jayz cheating on Beyonce put our relationships in jeopardy though?
One would argue and say that because it’s Beyonce and no one should ever cheat on her. Yeah? “Every diamond has imperfections” we cannot expect Jayz or Beyonce to not do things that we do. They are both kings but at the end of the day, they are human beings just like you and I. Although I can’t make sense of why people cheat in relationships instead of just leaving, let’s just back it up by saying “We all make mistakes. We are all imperfect”
Sure, we probably all look up to Beyonce and absolutely love her but come to think of it, we don’t know much about Beyonce. She is not like the typical celebrities posting up about every single thing that happens in their lives. We know nothing about her relationship with her husband. She is so lowkey – Beyonce doesn’t even follow ONE person on Instagram. We don’t even know who she likes. But somehow without much information about her, we have figured that she is beyond majestic therefore she is immune to infidelity.
So now we can’t proudly claim that our partners would never cheat on us because people have come up with a theory that what can be done to Beyonce will be done to us too?
What’s odd is that no ever believes they would be on Beyonce’s level but since she got ‘cheated’ on, now everybody can be like Beyonce any day as long as you are in a relationship.
If you are going to constantly believe every celebrity gossip without thinking or letting them talk first then you will find yourself in trouble. Now you are patiently waiting for the day your partner cheats on you because “it happened to Beyonce”? What a pity.
You know what would make the world a better place? People keeping their insecurities to themselves. If you believe that all men cheat and ‘all men are trash’ do flourish in your belief, however respect those that do not believe in your movement. We cannot paint everyone with the same brush now because of Jayz.
Trust your partner until the day they blatantly mess up. Don’t forget that a couple of years ago, the same person who is singing about how she got cheated on is the same person that sang about how awesome it is to be a single lady then left you jumping up and down and putting your hands up while she went home to her husband.
