Beyonce Takes Shots at Kanye, Kim & Addresses ElevatorGate in ‘Flawless (Remix)’ ft. Nicki Minaj

Beyonce is staying in the headlines as of late thanks to rumors suggesting her marriage to Jay Z is on the rocks and some suspect the couple will announce their separation once the On the Run Tour wraps up.

Although Bey has already made it clear on her Instagram account that the Carters are good, she’s decided to use the tabloid buzz in her favor by dropping the “Flawless (Remix)” with Nicki Minaj late last night.

And folks are already buzzing about the lyrics because some of it sounds like Beyonce may be clapping back at a few folks and even letting folks know ElevatorGate isn’t something she’s sweating these days.

The standout line for Beyonce would easily be the following:

We escalate, up in this b*tch like elevators
Of course sometimes sh*t go down
When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Of course sometimes sh*t go down
When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator

Interestingly enough, it also sounds like Bey had some words for Kanye too. Since hooking up with Kim, the rapper’s wife has constantly been compared to Beyonce in the media and it appears the singer is about tired of it. She raps:

These thots can’t clock me nowadays
You wish I was your pound cake
Boy you know I look good as f*ck
You wish I was your babymomma
Want me to come around and give you good karma, but no

 

As far as Nicki is concerned, her verse is getting plenty of buzz for her controversial Michael Jackson reference:

Yo, like MJ doctor, they killing me
Propofol, I know they hope I fall
But tell ‘em winning is my motherf*ckin’ protocol

 

 

Check out the track below and let us know if you’re feeling it.

      beyonce, don’t allow your fame to be a drag on you. You were not a ghetto girl and don’t have to be one to please your fans. Keep it light and don’t dis other girls/women. It ain’t pretty!

    Not a stan but I love the aggression and cockiness. I like Bey when she doesn’t give a f-ck. She went all the way in. Nicki wasn’t even needed.

    I like the remix, but I felt like Nicki’s rap was subpar. I thought I was listening to Joseline rap for a second. The MJ reference was tasteless. I understand she pushes for controversy but sheesh. I liked Bey’s rap though

    I was wondering if anyone caught on to the Kimye shade. People thought she was going in on Drake. Nah. That was all for Kim and Kanye. I love it.

    I heard it last night Bey blacked out on that verse. “Of course sometimes sh-t go down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator”. Straight fire!!!!! Nicki just needs to scrap that Anaconda BS cause she slayed on this remix. I thought that pound cake reference was a shot at Drake but I hope I’m wrong and hope it is toward those attention whoring Kartrashians.

    If anything this is just another example of the power of Beyonce. She was on the stage last night while this dropped and she owned the internet while performing with her man. People just need to accept that she is in her own lane and a force to be reckoned with.

    • Seriously?

    UB y’all were the first blog to report Kim and her fam were about to start coming for Beyonce via the blogs/media (http://urbanbellemag.com/2012/09/gossip-kim-kardashian-is-trying-to-ruin-beyonces-image-through-the-blogs.html) and I was skeptical. I mean REALLY skeptical. But now I see y’all were telling the truth. Notice the divorce rumors didn’t start until after they skipped the wedding. Kim even shaded Bey and Jay on IG the other day too. I gotta give y’all props for calling it two years ago.

    Obviously there is tension between The Carter’s and The West. Kanye GQ interview that he didn’t care that the Carter’s didn’t show up might have opened up a can of worms.

    For some reason I picture President Obama nodding his head to this in a chair somewhere while The First Lady points her finger to the floor with emphasis while saying:

    “You wish I was your pound cake
    Boy you know I look good as f*ck
    You wish I was your babymomma
    Want me to come around and give you good karma, but no”

    Yup!

    Of course she can’t divorce Jay-Z, she is property to him and that’s how they operate. Their marriage is a buisness deal and nothing more, no love in any pictures, more of a boss to his favorite employee. Beyonce and her husban both are mind polluting garbage just here to entertain the masses. She didn’t ‘kill’ anything but morality, I’ll pray for them.

          You can join her on the short and miserable bus too. You have a problem with Beyonce’s stans, but you don’t have an issue with some internet loser running up on this blog and bashing a woman she doesn’t even know and discussing her marriage like she has inside information. You’re ok with slander and trashing someone’s marriage, but stans are the problem? Shut up and sit. Your bitterness is showing as well.

      And this right here is what happens when idiots believe everything they read and have no real knowledge about who celebrities are in their real lives. And how do you repeat gossip in one breath and then talk about praying for someone in the next? You fake Christians are hilarious.

        I’m telling you. You can spot them out quickly because they use their religion to elevate themselves but they don’t practice any of the teachings from the Bible. And they love to say “God bless” and “I’ll pray for you” when the behavior they exhibit is wicked, condescending and contradictory. Give me a break.

      “Of course she can’t divorce Jay-Z, she is property to him and that’s how they operate. Their marriage is a buisness deal and nothing more, no love in any pictures, more of a boss to his favorite employee.”

      You sound like a sexist idiot. So a woman can’t be successful in her own right and make her own money? That’s too hard to believe, huh? Especially if she’s married to someone just as successful right? And it’s impossible for any man to actually fall in love with Beyonce, huh? A man has to control her, right? I swear some of y’all allow your hate for Beyonce to eat away at the little braincells you do have.

      ” Beyonce and her husban both are mind polluting garbage just here to entertain the masses.”

      Well you’re full of garbage and you don’t even listen to Beyonce and Jay Z, right? *shrugs*

      ” She didn’t ‘kill’ anything but morality, I’ll pray for them.”

      But you’re not showing that you have any morals yourself in this post. Let’s see, you judge people you don’t know. You gossip. And you use God as a means to put someone else down and feel better about your own shortcomings. I think you may need to go back and reread the Bible.
