After delivering what many critics call a poor effort or last trip to the bank for Beyonce, “Destiny Fulfilled” is known to be a lacking, shoddy album. Destiny’s Child prove that when it comes to “Nasty Girls” there’s only one solution-If you can’t beat them-JOIN THEM! But before I get on a tangent I will stick to the point.
“Cater 2 U” is apparently one of the best songs on this album, this scares me for many reasons. It is the most misogynistic, submissive song I have ever heard about how low a woman should stoop for her man and to be sung by women, is an insult.
Beyonce sings “Let Me Help You, Take Off Your Shoes, Untie Your Shoestrings, Let Me Feed You, Let Me Run Your Bathwater etc” All in the 1st verse. Kelly further elaborates on how, “I’ll Keep It Tight, I’ll Keep My Figure Right, I’ll Keep My Hair Fixed, Keep Rocking The Hottest Outfits, When You Come Home Late Tap Me On My Shoulder, I’ll Roll Over, Baby I Heard You, I’m Here To Serve You.”
Clearly Dillusional Cult 3 hopes to put the “Dependent” back into independent in this ode to being your man’s slave. Let’s all join in “Boy I will lick the balls of your feet, with my tongue as I am only a lowly female…” Are you disgusted yet?
I am. I won’t even start on the chorus as I felt physically sick at just reading the lyrics of this song. To Dependent Clueless 3, it’s clear that “Cater” means submit to a point where a woman is a doormat, maid, sex toy and a trophy who must make sure that her appearance is key and she is at the beck and call of her CAVEman.
What the f-ck! This is just yet another tool in teaching our gender, the 15th century way. Wakeup! It’s 2004, hello! Some may dismiss what I have to say as write this off as “just a song.” No. This is just sick! There is nothing wrong with loving someone, but that does not mean that you must be their slave, in any way shape of form.
I wouldn’t be caught dead singing, writing or listening to this song. I still haven’t heard it and I don’t plan to as I am sick of Desperately Captive 3 putting their hypocritical views and chastising their religion through their music.
The last thing we need is ANOTHER portrayal of a weak woman, ASHANTI (Foolish.) Or another hypocrite telling us how to act, Delusionally Cult-following 3 (Nasty girl.)
I cannot fathom how DaddyKnowles Creations 3 even dare to put their conservative, corporate America, conventional views down our throats when they’re having dry sex and other chauvinistic stereotypes in their videos. Meanwhile DC3 fails to “Cater” to me or any other self respecting women, and woman-respecting men.
