BET Awards gives Chris Brown a chance to sing “These hoes ain’t loyal”

By  |  14 Comments

Remember the words “These hoes ain’t loyal?”  Those were the words spoken a few weeks ago by Pastor Jamal Bryant.  The remarks received a broad backlash from individuals on the web who felt that he was being disrespectful toward women.  But last night at the BET Awards, Chris Brown showed up to give a surprise performance of the song “Loyal,” which has the lyrics from the song that was quoted by Pastor Bryant.

The lyrics to the song are below.  We ask you to tell us if you feel that it is disrespectful toward women to play songs like this at the BET Awards.  Do you feel that women were harder on Pastor Bryant than they would be on Chris Brown, the man who made the song?  The majority of Brown’s fans are female, so what does this say about his music, about black women or about BET?

Are there women’s rights groups who will speak out about the performance of a song that has objectionable content aimed at a less-than-flattering description of women, or will they remain silent on this one?  The reactions of feminist groups and others concerned about the objectification of women in music is regularly tested by the disparate reaction to such performances in comparison to the way these same organizations might respond to a pastor that doesn’t have the power or reach of BET.

Read the lyrics and give us your thoughts.  Can someone argue that the words are NOT disrespectful toward women?  If so, please explain.

I wasn’t born last night
I know these hoes ain’t right
But you was blowing up her phone last night
But she ain’t have her ringer nor her ring on last night, oh
Nigga, that’s that nerve
Why give a bitch your heart when she’d rather have a purse?
Why give a bitch an inch when she’d rather have nine?
You know how the game goes
She be mine by half time, I’m the shit, oh
Nigga, that’s that nerve
You all about her, and she all about hers
Birdman Junior in this bitch, no flamingos
And I done did everything, but trust these hoes
(CB fuck with me!)

When a rich nigga want ya
And your nigga can’t do nothing for ya
These hoes ain’t loyal
These hoes ain’t loyal
Yeah, yeah, let me see

    I don’t feel disrespected by the lyrics to this song because I don’t look at myself as being a hoe, bitch or any other nasty word used to describe women or some men. Any woman that is bothered by it, obviously thinks she’s a hoe and he’s talking to her.

    With the world in the state it is, we (womankind, in general) have much bigger “trout” to fry. Let’s choose our battles carefully, and not waste ammo on firecracker rounds. You guys in the media can fight this skirmish if you please.

    I see nothing wrong with telling the truth no matter how bold or vulgar it may be. Get over it these hoes ain’t loyal. And if Chris Breezy come through and take my puppy, please tell him to not send her back empty handed. Real talk

    Just women being disrespected again! Brown beat up his girlfriend and security people..insulted his mother! Now he’s allowed by everyone to disrespect all women, whether you think so or not! The promoters are male..media is male. The Supreme Court, mostly male. voted today to take away more of your rights for healthcare! Do they believe women to be hoes/bitches..they’re treating you that way!!
    Maybe just keep saying it’s O.K and see what happens!

    I’m digging for your call for women’s rights groups to boycott ‘Scandal’ (educated professional black woman being a married man’s whore); your request to boycott Love & Hip Hop & Real Housewives of Atl (grown non married baby mommas fighting over cheating dudes); your boycott of Mary Jane (see Scandal), etc. Selective outrage for the entertainment industries disrespect of black woman (largely cuz its a man and you don’t like him) makes your argument paper thin.

    Any women who thinks chris brown isnt talking to her is delusional.

    I hate songs that disrespect men or women and we just should not make a market for it. As long as we buy, it will continue, but i definitely dont want to hear that from my minister. We just need to set higher standards for what we will accept as women, men, people of color etc. unfortunately today this is more common than words of praise and thats sad

    I feel that all of us humans need to respect each other’s “truth” even if we don’t agree rather feel the same. You ideals do not make you better or less than mine or me if we don’t agree. Personally, as a woman, I understand the nature of the song and so do most intelligent people. There are women who behave like bitches/hoes and these are the ones the song refers to. I on the other hand, like the song because I know some of those hoes who aren’t loyal! #truthis
