Also, I have no idea whether he has actually been cheating, but it always amazed me that everyone seemed to just forget about everything Jay has told us about himself as soon as he was with Beyoncé. All of a sudden everyone believes 100% that he’s this great family man who is an amazing and monogamous partner for a woman just because he’s with Bey? I have adored Jay since wayyy back, but I always found that hard to believe.
I saw him at Pemberton in 2008, and he did a verse about f*cking groupies that ended with “but don’t tell the Mrs.,” and that was his lead-in to Crazy in Love. Really classy.

Jay and Bey are the type of people who know exactly what they want and will work their asses off to get it, no matter what the cost. If anyone could keep a marriage going despite any obstacle, even cheating, it’s them.
That said, if Bey decided she was done, I could see her having the courage to end it despite how difficult it would be. But that’s so not the impression I got watching her visual album. She seemed more committed than ever. That could just be part of the brand, but again, if that’s what she wants for her life that’s what she’s gonna get.
And while this may relate to her girl power brand, I don’t see why it necessarily has to be about feminism. Feminism is about the belief that women should have social, political, and economic equality with men, and choosing to be in a relationship with a man who is not sexually monogamous does not necessarily make her less of a feminist. I hate how “feminism” is (mis)used to make moral judgments about any and every choice a woman makes.

She really is insufferable, isn’t she? Someone needs to spend many, many hours in a therapy group…

This is disgusting. The ONLY positive thing about any of this is that he’s giving us a perfect case study to discuss emotional manipulation/abuse, harassment, and stalking in intimate relationships. Still really hoping Paula goes for a restraining order.

Aaliyah’s family is extremely protective of her, and I think anyone familiar with her life story understands why. Given who she was and what her experiences were in the industry, I can’t believe that anyone claiming to respect her and her legacy is still trying to do projects about her without the full support and collaboration of her family and close friends.

I think I see a restraining order in his future

I don’t think she looks much like Aaliyah but I do agree that she seems to emulate her style. Hopefully she does a good job.
I’m wondering what will actually be in this lifetime movie? Even if the family agreed to it, would they legally be allowed to cover all the R. Kelly stuff? Will Missy and Timbaland be involved? Will someone be cast as Damon Dash??
I adored Aaliyah and this all makes me very nervous. She obviously had an amazing story, but she was very private and I worry that the movie will be very hollow and not really capture her life and world at all. In which case, what’s the point?
