In the world of hip-hop music, opening shots are fired over beats, and rapper Liv just lobbed some serous artillery at Beyoncé.
Liv, who has been accused by tabloids of being Jay Z's mistress, released a video for her new single "Sorry Mrs. Carter" on Monday, and in it, she says she and Beyoncé's rapper husband "never screwed." However, she does imply that Jay Z wanted to and that he still thinks about her today when he's supposed to be with Beyoncé. Oooohsnap!
The song, which heavily—and I mean heavily—samples the OutKast song "Sorry Mrs. Jackson," continues with the verse, "I'm sorry, Mrs Carter," referencing Jay Z's real last name. And to put to rest any doubt about the song's meaning, Liv has tabloid covers superimposed on the screen showing headlines alleging her hook up with Jay Z.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks about trouble between Jay Z and Beyoncé, who have been married since 2008 and have a daughter together, Blue Ivy. The couple will wrap the stateside leg of their "On the Run" tour on Wednesday in San Francisco, and will perform together again in Paris on Sept. 12 and 13 for their upcoming HBO special.
I will warn you about clicking on the video below as Liv is not nearly as talented as Beyoncé, Jay Z, or a bunch of pots and pans clanging together.
