how is this acceptable?

Am disgusted and saddened to be honest.

And could 'eat the cake' be a play on words, in that cake etc is slang for oral sex? Am not saying it's an ok thing to say, just thinking out loud.

I am soooo bored of seeing all of these women in no clothes! It would be so refreshing to see someone wearing bloody clothes!

All that video does is make other women feel inadequate. The reference is horrid, and once again a man in all of his clothes!

Clothes, clothes clothes. Put on some damn clothes!

The song is ultra crap anyway. Who actually likes this stuff?

I you think she did not get the reference to Ike's emotional and physical abuse?

<hopeful>

Maybe she is a bit dim.

I've always been under the impression that Beyoncé isn't awfully bright.

Being surrounded by yes people as she most certainly is, coupled with being a bit dim results in things like dv referenced it seems.

I don't really "get" Beyoncé's popularity.

I have seen a video of Jay-Z pushing a woman out of his way, he has also been convicted of stabbing a man. I can't help thinking that someone who has changed wouldn't reference domestic violence in this way.
These types of things are widely accepted in this industry, Dr. Dre is very successful, he beat a woman up for trying to interview him, it's even been joked about in one of his songs.
Chris Brown hit Rihanna but I don't think it's really had a negative effect on his career. It doesn't take long for these things to be forgotten which I think normalises violence not only to their fans but to people who keep up with what's going on in the celebrity world
