Over spring break, rumors sparked that Big Sean cheated on Jhene Aiko. Despite them shutting down the rumors, people came to Jhene’s defense. Everyone was confused why anyone could cheat on a beautiful and successful woman like her. When the rumor began trending on Twitter, pop culture Twitter did some investigating. They started tweeting pictures of other notable women who were cheated on. Beyoncé was included in the list.
Like anyone normal person, we’re all screaming “Who cheats on Beyoncé!?”
It came to light during the release of Beyoncé’s Lemonade that Jay-Z cheated on her. I don’t know the couple personally, but let’s put Beyoncé’s gorgeous looks aside. Even her talent. Just think about what her and Jay-Z had in common. Their like-mindedness of being hardworking and successful people in the music industry would make you think they had an unbreakable bond. We think “power couple” or that they’re perfect for each other. Yet, if rumors are true… this still wasn’t enough to have her husband be faithful.
Ladies began tweeting that they were bound to get cheated on if people like Jhene and Beyoncé get cheated on. People are inclined to cheat. It’s wrong, but I do think it’s natural that people develop emotional and physically connections to people they are not dating. No, it’s not an excuse to cheat, but it’s a reason to stay out of a relationship if you can’t respect your partner. On another note, our looks and personalities obviously aren’t worthy to some men, and unfortunately to the ones we date or marry.
All I’m saying is, ladies, we have to stop thinking about what we can do to get a man to keep us. Whether it’s being one of the most successful women in music, having an awesome body, being a super mom who gets her family to school and church on time, the woman who has dinner fixed every day, etc., I just hope at the end of the day, whatever you’re doing to be an awesome woman, you’re doing it for you, so you’ll always feel worthy of yourself, and have the best confidence no matter who hurts you. You have to be your definition of an amazing woman for you, not for your significant other.
