Is her new single just bragging about her man’s equipment?
While on tour in Europe, Beyoncé took some time out for a holiday to Barcelona with her hubby, Jay-Z. She also debuted her new single, "Ego," which sharp listeners might interpret as an ode to her husband's endowment. No, we're not kidding. Look at the lyrics, y'all:
Why? Well, you got the key to my heart
But you ain't gonna need it, I'd rather you open up my body
And show me secrets, you didn't know was inside
No need for me to lie
It's too big, it's too wide
It's too strong, it won't fit
It's too much, it's too tough
He talk like this 'cause he can back it up
He got a big ego, such a huge ego
I love his big ego, it's too much
He walk like this 'cause he can back it up
Men have feelings, too. The proof is in the lyric.
Bitterness is for the birds. And sweeping generalizations rarely, if ever, hold true. All women are not bitter, and along those lines, all men are not emotionally bankrupt. We got a call tonight from a friend who was ready to give up on men. Nonsense, we said.
Bird's tune more of "stay-away-from-my-man" signal than love song, researchers find.
Let's say a female antbird is hanging out with her male partner. The two lovebirds are perched there on a branch and along comes an attractive, single female antbird. The male starts to sing his song. But before attractive, single female antbird can even hear the first note, the male's parter starts singing over his song. This is in an attempt to "jam the signal" or interrupt her man-bird and prevent him from openly flirting, find researchers at the University of Oxford.
A romantic gift that beats—and beats the old mix tape.
You didn't hear it from us, but cassette tapes are so last decade. We wish we had better news, but the good old days of love mix tapes are gone for good.
Luckily—for some—sappy love songs seem to be here to stay. So the next time you need a gift for a pal or partner, put away your tape deck and present them with the modern mix tape: an iPod.
If a 'pod in a box doesn't fulfill your sky-high gift-giving standards, think outside the box. You can personalize your gift by adding your favorite sappy-song playlist and you can even get it engraved–for free. (If you're gift giving for V-day, Apple ensure your gift arrives on time as long as you place your order by February 9).
Deadlines mean decision-making. If you're having trouble deciding what to write, rest assured: the Apple store has some suggestions and we Lover Buzzers have our two sense. Here are our top choices for iPod engravings for each love stage:
