The slow groove of a song, "Dirty Laundry," airs just the kind of material the title suggests. She opens up about abuse in a previous relationship ("meanwhile this n*gga putting his hands on me") and her feelings about the success of her bandmate Beyonce ("kinda lucky I was in her shadow"), and then brings the two subjects together by saying her ex turned her against her old pal.
The lyrics are shocking: She sings, "When my sister was on stage, killing it like a mother f*cker, I was feeling enraged, feeling like a mother f*cking bird in a cage." Then "Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killing it. Bittersweet, she was up, I was down. Normally I'd feel good for her but what do I do now?" She wonders, "She on fire, who want to hear my bullsh*t?"
And then, the worst part. She goes on to sing that her ex told her, "Don't nobody love you but me. Not your mama, not your daddy… not Bey." Listen here!
