Beyonce’s powerhouse album ‘Lemonade’ allegedly took Jay Z to task for cheating on her, but did it have another hidden message? Bey may have been fighting for all women, everywhere, who have been disrespected, and not just herself!
Leave it to Beyonce, 34, to stick up for women across the world. Her new album, Lemonade, is chock full of lyrics that indicate she’s sick and tired of women being disrespected, not just herself. And if the panicked responses from men are any indication, she’s struck a nerve with the dudes who are doing them wrong — like Jay Z (allegedly)! Click through to review the evidence!

Beyonce’s lyrics spell out that a very stupid man is cheating on her, but they can also be applied to any woman who’s feeling burned by a guy who doesn’t see her worth. How dare they! Take this lyric from Beyonce’s incredibly powerful “Hold Up”:
“Can’t you see there’s no other man above you / What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you.”
“Something don’t feel right because it ain’t right, especially coming up after midnight / I smell your secrets and I’m not too perfect to ever feel this worthless / How did it come down to this, going through your call list? / I don’t wanna lose my pride but I’ma f*ck me up a bitch.”
And from “Love Drought”: “I’ve always been committed, I’ve been focused / I always paid attention, been devoted, tell me what did I do wrong?”
“Ten times out of nine, I know you’re lying / But nine times outta ten, I know you’re trying.”
“Are you aware you’re my lifeline, are you trying to kill me? / If I wasn’t me, would you still feel me? / Like on my worst day? Or am I not thirsty enough?”
Beyonce isn’t messing around. She’s already made it clear that girls run the world, and she’s going to continue standing up for them! This was further proven by remarks from male celebs, like Wesley Snipes and Marlon Wayans, who complained that they couldn’t listen to Lemonade around their ladies. Guys, maybe don’t disrespect them and you could share the full Lemonade experience without any problems!
