There is little Beyonce can do without the entire world taking note, subsequently trying to decode every possible meaning. So, when she changed the lyrics of the heartbreak ballad "Resentment" at a recent tour stop, the Internet spun into a frenzy.
Queen Bey took to the stage in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 28, dressed in an all-white bridal-themed ensemble complete with a veil. She belted out "Resentment," a track from her 2006 album "B'Day," but that night Beyonce decided to revamp the song by switching up some of the lyrics.
She changed the line "I'll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn't do it for you like your mistress could" to "I'll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn't do it for you like that wack bitch could."
The bigger shock came when she changed "Been ridin' with you for six years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me" to "Been ridin' with you for 12 years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me. She ain't even half of me. That bitch will never be." When she uttered the number 12 instead of six, the crowd roared, presumably because Beyonce and Jay Z got together circa 2002.
