Beyoncé’s, ‘Drunk In Love’, to be Edited on UK Station

Beyoncé has been getting a lot of flack about the lyrics to her new self-titled album and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. UK radio station, Bang Radio, has banned a part of Jay Z’s lyrics from ‘Drunk In Love’ for domestic violence. What type of domestic violence did he insinuate?

I’m Ike, Turner turn up/ Baby know I don’t play / Now eat the cake, Anna Mae / I said eat the cake, Anna Mae

That is one of the prolific scenes from the Tina Turner biopic starring Angela Basset. Bang Radio’s CEO, Jennifer Ogle, released a statement:

The lyrics controversially imitate a scene of severe domestic violence within the film, displaying promotion of domestic violence against women. In this light Bang [refuses] to play the song lyrics from henceforth on our station. We believe in the unity of women and music and in no way condone violence, domestic or otherwise, especially not through the power of music. Therefore, the decision has been made to wipe the stated lyrics from the song … Respectful of what our audience [wants] to hear on Bang Radio, we feel this is the right action to take in regards to the controversial lyrics of the song and we will continue to serve in social equality for people through music and content on our station.

From the first half of the statement it said that the song would no longer be played, but near the end the decision was changed to the song being played with the lyrics removed. This could be done one of two ways. Jay Z’s lyrics could be removed from the song entirely or his lyrics can still be played just removing the part insinuating domestic violence with some looping. I really would have thought that the song would get banned for the sexual innuendos instead of the domestic violence insinuation that clearly went over my head.

The song is doing very well on the charts ranking in the top 5 on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. The album itself is holding on at #2 on the Billboard 200.

Well if you would like to keep up the Carters you can catch them (including Baby Blue) all over the blogs and Beyoncé’s Instagram. The couple is also slated to perform at the Grammy’s this Sunday (1/26/14).

Sunday Rant (V.2): Lazy to Productive

It’s 8:03pm (notice I like to timestamp events in my life) and I’m just getting around to putting up my rant. It’s before midnight so it’s fine. I’m just determined to get up a blog post EVERY DAY! Today I woke up fairly early and I’ve finally got my sleep schedule back on a routine.

I spent the beginning part of my day editing my blog’s archive (which is almost finished), but then I looked around my room and saw how messy it was. It’s hard to work in mess no matter how much you try to look around it, or sit on top of it. I decided to clean my room.

In the midst of cleaning I decided to work on some blog posts. There goes the distraction and procrastination of cleaning my room. The sun was still out and I wanted to get some posts done with natural lighting. Stay tuned for those! After getting all my photos done I was able to clean my room and so some laundry. I try to do most of my work on the weekends because after working anywhere from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday I’m tired and all I want to do when I get home is shower, eat, and watch my favorite shows.

SPEAKING OF, my winter will be filled with episodes of Law & Order: SVU (still not the same without Stabler), Criminal Minds, NCIS: Los Angeles, Pretty Little Liars, Netflix,WWE (yes I’m a wrestling fan), and my personal fav YouTube!

I get a lot of inspiration for YouTube whether it’s an incentive to go buy the latest product, DIY ideas, tutorials, hauls, and my new fav vlogs, I love them all. As for the WWE I will soon be canceling my Netflix Account and signing up for the WWE Newtork ($10/month). Yeah it’s a $2 increase in my ‘budget’, but all the perks with the WWE Network are so worth it.

As for my night I’ll be looking on Instagram & Google to see who won at the Golden Globes, editing & creating more blog posts for  the upcoming weeks, and getting into my magazines of the moment.
