We’d wager we’re right on the cusp of a full-fledged BeyHive Cyber Attack. Yikes!
‘Crunchers, meet Liv. She’s the Chicago-based hip-hopster, who’s about thisclose to finding herself on the receiving end of biting criticism (and very likely, death threats) from Beyoncé’s legion of fanatical followers.
The rumors of strife and infidelity in Queen Bey’s 12 year romance with now-husband Jay Z have been tabloid fodder ever since footage of Solange’s elevator row with her famous brother-in-law went viral in May. Branded a femcee, the caramel-complected Liv was relatively unknown in the music world until she thrust herself into the middle of the Bey-Z marital drama.
In an interview with Life & Style Weekly last month, the sometimes model denied rumors that she bedded the “So Ambitious” rapper, but recalled an encounter in which he hit or her. Liv claimed she turned him down.
Ah — which brings us to the point of this post. No longer content to sell her “scoop” to the highest-bidding glossies, Liv has decided to capitalize on her five minutes of fame in a whole new way.
…An original track taking aim at Pop’s Golden Goddess.
The single, “Sorry Mrs. Carter,” borrows the beat of the Oukast classic “Sorry Ms. Jackson” and pokes not-so-subtle fun at the alleged turmoil simmering between Jay and Bey. Liv maintains that she never slept with the rapper…so what exactly is she apologizing for?
Behold, some sample lyrics:
“Why don’t you tell these girls how to be wives? Why don’t you tell these girls how to act around yo’ husband?”
“The man? He likes model chicks. He likes all naturally flawless model chicks, like me.”
“You got 99 problems, I’m not tryin’ to be one.”
“Girls can’t run the world fightin’ over men, all my single ladies better keep in mind when them those tables turn you gon’ be the wife.”
Fun fact: At press time, “Sorry Mrs. Carter” had already amassed more than 8,000 down votes on YouTube.
