Hollywood's golden couple has some surprisingly sketchy secrets...
First things first, who doesn't know of Beyonce and Jay-Z?
via: ShutterstockOne of the world's most iconic pop-stars, Beyonce Knowles, has been world-famous since making her debut with Destiny's Child in the late '90s. As well as being one of the most attractive women to ever walk this earth, her marriage to rapper, Jay-Z, since 2008 has made herself and her husband global phenomenons.
Their marriage has had its fair share of public highs...
But every marriage has its downs...
Then came the "Lemonade" Scandal...Following the release of Lemonade in 2016, which included the single "I'm Sorry," speculations arose in regards to Jay-Z's infidelity with a mistress named "Becky".
But through thick and thin, the power couple are still going strong.
Absolute goals.It probably helps that they're the most Instagramable couple, ever.
Being married doesn't mean that there are no problems, however...And there are a ton of weird aspects to this very public pairing.
So let's get started, shall we?
via: ShutterstockWe have a conclusive list of all the sketchy things about this marriage everyone just seems to ignore.
So let's start at the beginning.
via: ShutterstockThere's just one problem - no one seems to know when that was.
Bey has said she met Jay when she was 18.
via: ShutterstockBut he claims to have known her way back in the "No No No (Part 2)" days.
And to make matters weirder?
via: ShutterstockBey's first BF, Lyndall Locke, claimed they were together into Beyonce's twenties ...
Bey has previously said she and Jay started dating when she was 19.
via: ShutterstockBut the two have also claimed they were just friends for a lot of that time.
Throughout their early collabs, they insisted their pairing was platonic.
via: Getty ImagesWhich begs the question - why all the lies?
In fact, the pair are often rather sketchy about their relationship.
via: Getty ImagesWhen asked about it in public, they tend to try to keep things vague.
But what makes this seems even shadier?
via: Getty ImagesThe fact that they're all too happy to spill the beans in their songs.
Ok, now we've got through their secretive side, let's hit a biggie.
via: Getty ImagesThose Illuminati rumors, of course!
Many conspiracy theorists believe Bey and Jay are part of a secret society.
via: Getty ImagesAnd they haven't done anything to dissuade the rumors.
Jay's Roc a Fella Records logo is triangular, just like the Illuminati's.
via: Getty ImagesBey has even addressed the rumors in her "Formation" lyrics.
Another area where Bey and Jay have behaved in a strange manner?
via: Getty ImagesThat elevator incident, of course!
Yeah, remember when Solange seemed to absolutely batter Jay Z on CCTV?
via: Getty ImagesWe still haven't gotten to the bottom of what that was all about.
The only clue we were ever given was lyrically, again.
via: Getty Images"Of course sometimes s**t goes down when there's a billion dollars in an elevator." What does it all mean?
And there's another area of the couple's relationship which has some distinct oddness.
via: Getty ImagesTheir gift-giving game.
Bey once bought Jay a private jet for Father's Day.
via: Getty ImagesAnd, responding in kind, Jay gifted Bey a private island for her 29th birthday.
Not only are these displays of wealth a little distasteful...
via: Getty ImagesBut many question why this relationship relies on such huge gestures...
The couple is very private in some ways.
via: Getty ImagesBut in another way, they let it all hang out.
We're talking about their lyrics.
via: Getty ImagesWe can't see why these two are so keen to publicize their biggest secrets in song.
via: Getty ImagesThat whole album gained headlines thanks to the implications that Jay had strayed.
But that's not the only time the pair have aired their dirty laundry in public.
via: Getty ImagesJay Z's 2006 track "Lost One" includes these lyrics. "I don't think it's meant to be, B / But she loves her work more than she does me / And honestly, at 23 / I would probably love my work more than I did she. So we ain't we."
And remember 4:44?
via: Getty Images"Look, I apologize, often womanize/ Took for my child to be born/ See through a woman's eyes/ Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles/ Took me too long for this song." Yikes.
Not only does this oversharing seem unhealthy...
via: Getty ImagesBut it's led the public to question their motives, too.
WHy would they make their records so confessional?
via: Getty ImagesTo... sell more of them, perhaps?
By keeping their interviews quiet, and only opening up in music ...
via: Getty ImagesThe pair certainly generate a level of intrigue that leads to increased fame.
In fact, Jay has even alluded to the fakeness of their drama in songs, too.
via: Getty Images"You know you made it when the fact / Your marriage made it is worth millions / Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is / Survival of the littest."
Because, while Bey and Jay are very open lyrically...
via: Getty ImagesIt turns out they're very secretive, privately.
Remember Beyonce's iconic pregnancy reveal Instagram?
via: Getty ImagesWell, it turns out, her dad found out about the twins at the same time as the public.
Bey has publicly thrown her dad under the bus in the past, too.
via: Getty ImagesQuoting the Warsan Shire poem: "You remind me of my father, a magician / Able to exist in two places at once / In the tradition of men in my blood, you come home at 3 a.m. and lie to me."
So, in spite of their public image...
via: Getty ImagesIt's safe to say not all is well in the Bey-Jay pairing.
From the sketchiness over their relationship beginning...
via: Getty ImagesTo the total lack of trust the public has in the pair...
Could it be that the couple's cracks are beginning to show?
via: Getty ImagesIt sure seems that way.
