Beyoncé’s most recent album Lemonade is packed with lyrical references to infidelity and betrayal – content that has furthered speculation about marital difficulties between her and her music mogul husband, Jay Z.
While most of Beyoncé’s fans sided with Queen Bey, former radio personality Ciku Muiruri has criticised the 34-year-old singer and all those who have joined the Beyoncé bandwagon.
According to Ciku, your man will still cheat on you, even if you are as stunning as Beyoncé and Rihanna.
“Gorgeous women like Beyonce, Halle Berry, and Rihanna etc are all getting cheated on and y’all are in the gym working on your bodies and paying big bucks for that make up and wardrobe. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, it’s not about the way you look; it’s about how you make him feel,” she started.
Although she admitted to being enthralled by Lemonade, Ms Muiruri warned women against bashing their partners’ egos in public.
“I was enthralled along with the rest of you watching that epic documentary but please, don’t be misled. You simply can’t cut a man’s [explative] off in public and expect to remain in a happy marriage, even if you’re Beyoncé,” she opined.
Why you might ask. Well, according to Ciku, admiration is a basic need for a man.
“Quite simply, admiration is food for a man’s soul. He needs to feel admired more than he needs to feel loved. We get it twisted because we care about love more than admiration,” said the former radio personality.
So Jay Z will be in awe of his wife and all of her professional accomplishments but she doesn’t want his admiration (she gets that from the the rest of us), she wants his love. On the other hand, Bey will love him with all her soul but he doesn’t really need that, he needs her admiration.
While the rest of the world adores Beyoncé – even going to the extent of calling her Queen Bey – Ms Muiruri says she’s “worse than the average chick”.
“She wonders how he can cheat on her – She ain’t no average chick she tells us. Yes you are Bey. You are actually worse than the average chick because you feel entitled. You are no different from every other girl out there who made a buck and made a man her equal,” Ciku wrote.
Beyonce has been outspoken about feminism, often praising the independent woman – one who doesn’t need validation and financial support from a man.
“Call it feminism. Call it whatever you want. But you forget what drives a man. His greatest pleasure is to be admired by a woman and his greatest pain is when his masculinity is belittled by a woman. This is a FACT and all your female empowerment agendas will NEVER change this,” she stated emphatically.
That said, what advice that Ms Muiruri have for women?
“Be humble. Work on your soul as well as your body. Put the Lord first and marry a man who does the same. If both of you are God fearing you will never have to deal with this [explative], trust me,” she advised.
Ms Muiruri went on to share some more tips on how to keep a man happy – content that many feminists would have a struggle stomaching.
“You have to make your man number one after God. Respect him. Admire him. That love you want from him will only be unlocked if he feels needed. If he feels he can protect you. If you are vulnerable with him. Ever wondered how some ugly chick can land the hottest guy in town? Now you know,” she stated.
If you don’t heed to this advice, another women will be more than willing to ‘steal’ your man, according to Ms Muiruri .
Additionally, Ms Muiruri had some choice words for Beyoncé
“What have you done now? You have emasculated him. The big, bad rapper has been schooled by his wife. How do you imagine this eventually plays out? I for one won’t be surprised if this marriage disintegrates. Sure, the other girl is not a superstar. She doesn’t have your body or talent or legion of fans. But she will eventually have your man,” she stated.
Why you may ask?
Ms Muiruri explains: “Because of how she makes him FEEL. The beehive can’t keep you warm at night. For heaven’s sake girl, give Jay Z his (masculine pride) back.”
