Remember when back in the day MediaTakeOut.com was the ONLY PLACE ON THE WEB talking about how Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were having an affair???
And Remember when US WEEKLY (See here) and MTV News (see here) and just about every other major urban news source said that we were lying.
Well on Monday, Mashonda went on Angela Yee’s Lip Service Sirius Sattelite radio show and confirmed that Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz had a relationship during her marriage with Swizz’. (See here)
Now we could sit here and just say that we told you so – and keep it moving like always. But we figured it was time for us to extend an olive branch to all of the media – especially urban media.
So many folk in urban media think it’s OK to steal MediaTakeOut.com’s content – without attribution. And the only time that they ever attribute anything to us is when you think we’re wrong (which is becoming FAR less frequent, as I’m sure you’ve noticed).
Well, let’s look now at the facts. Over the last three years MediaTakeout.com has become the most popular, most visited and most influential urban website on the planet. That didn’t come by luck. It came because we work our AZZES OFF reporting ORIGINAL stories and coming up with new and innovative ideas to make the site more interesting and fun than ANY OTHER in this genre.
So to all you urban media folks that think its OK to just steal from hard working Black folk trying to make something out of nothing – go ahead. But remember this, we ain’t linking to ANY of your content, we’re not gonna put your boss ON BLAST when you get laid off (which in this environment, is likely), and we’re NOT going to accept your resume now … or EVER.
And to all those forward thinking media folk – that understand that the Internet is the future of urban media, just keep crediting us like you’ve been doing so in the past. We’re happy to send our 5 MILLION READERS (more than ANY other urban website) your way.
JUST SAW MASHONDA LAST TUESDAY AT SUZIE WONGS, SHE CAN DEFINITELY GET IT
PREACH IT MTO!!!
I KNEW ALL ALONG HE WAS *** ALICIA SKEEZ,THAT MAN STEALIN,HOME WRECKIN,HO. IM SEXY 42 AND I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE.
hhhmmmmmm, who cares?!
and your point was
WHO GIVES A ***
Mashonda don't make no sense. She just said like a month ago Alicia had nothing to do with their marriage falling apart , now she trying to hint she does.
somebody at MTO is having a sucka attack...chill out
At least sumbody was beatin up A Keys hole
yall just guess..like yall do every other story yall do
superwoman my arse! A real superwoman can get ha own dam* man, ol *** eyed lil tit*ied homewrecking tramp!
Nobody owns Nobody unless they are a parent and then you own your children. Married or not, nobody owns anybody...marriage is a contract (officially) and contracts are broken all the time...just ask my cell phone company. So stop hating...ppl want what they want!
Dont F#ck with MTO!!
I sincerely hope that Alicia was not seeing him. I would like to think that she has more respect herself and other women and wouldn't stoop to this level. I love her but I will lose a lot of respect for her if this is true.
***! i'm so disappointed! i love Alicia but she just lost maaaaaajor points with me! *** with somebody married...that *** aint ever cool!
*** yall snapped.....lol.......
MTO!!!!! We all knew it.( yare ppl 1st /2nd and they dont post comment nuttin'}
i didnt like alicia with that boney swizz beats anyway next
LMAO @ MTO and 5 million readers. GTFOH..more like 122 readers.
Swizzy? Really? Not cute, Not natural...
MTO stop boosting you ego, yal dont be working ***
OH MTO THAT'S WASSUP!!! LET THEM KNOW. THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA ALWAYS WANTS TO DISCREDIT ANY HARDING WORKING BLACKS UNLESS OF COURSE THEY ARE MIXED (TIGER WOODS, NOT TALKING ABOUT OBAMA). I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! REALLY!! You could think about accepting my resume too.. Lol. email@example.com
OKAY 1 OUT OF 1OO'S YOU HIT THE JACKPOT MTO
LMAO @ how MTO is trying to act like they work so hard. Yall work hard alright, work hard on making up ***.
What Mashonda said still don't prove ***. i need some photos or something besides some word of mouth BS.
GOT DAM..MTO..DID U HAVE TO AIR IT OUT LIKE THAT..YALL BE MAKING STORIES OUTTA OTHER PEOPLE *** 2. SMH!!
mto nobody gives a ***!!!
go [SPAM] dot c o m
MTO, *** yall azzes up! Acting like yall hard or something!
stars do what they want..and if it were your husband that they like i'd be yours too...i like ak..but she don't give a fezuck...loolol
Whoop Te Do, big deal so what who cares? You lie 80% of the time. What happened to the big lie you sold us about Jennifer Hudson performing for Obama and NOT Beyonce. You said Beyonce was jealous she wasn't asked to perform etc etc and then she does the very first dance song. "Go On" with you false stories! I am saying it very lady like "Go On"
Not that this is anybody’s business, but we really don’t know what was going on behind the scenes. The estranged wife is the only person talking about this so we are only hearing one-sided testimony. It sounds like the wife is obviously angry and devastated by the failure of their marriage. Unfortunately she is not handling it too well and instead of focusing on the little ones and moving on she chooses to direct the pain and blame at Alicia. If she is speaking to the press to get Swizz back, she is using a wrong approach.
It annoys me when women solely blame other women for the demise of their relationships instead of taking a look at themselves first. If a man is not appreciative and respectful of her feelings, treats her like a doormat, and/or has done things to disappoint her before, why be surprised when he does something even more bogus like cheating? Also sometimes it is a woman’s bad attitude, jealousy and spinelessness that can enable their man to do them wrong.
I would hope that AK would have more class than to knowingly get involved with a man, who is still married, but then again we don’t know what Swizz was telling Alicia or if they were more than just FRIENDS. Alicia is supposed to be *** – remember?
Don't care. Love A-keys music and she is a human being like all of us, and allowed to make mistakes. Love her still.
And your quote is from the jilted woman, so of coures she would say negative things.
and what the hell is lilhaireddreads talking about and to who?
ITS NOT TIME TO PAT URSELF ON THE BACK MTO, YOU ARE FULL OF ISH MOST OF THE TIME...LOL
Fred, y'all keep dishing out this good, ole ghetto azz gossip and we'll keep eating it up. I come to this site every morning to read about y'all talking ***, lying on someone, laughing at the comments from readers, or especially enjoying the cat fights between everyone. This site is the ***! I couldn't live without it.
um, I live in the A and I just heard that *** woman Mashonda whoever she is say that people need to stop trying to disrespect alicia keys with all the nonsense. I remember becuz I was thinking how much MTO lie! Also, Ne-Yo admitted he neva got into a effin fight with Jim Jones and he's not engaged. This site is a fraud most of the time. Amazing how some posters really believe the *** though!
Tell'em MTO! Demand your respect! But please... stop using vulgar titles like "Wyclef about to POUND OUT ZOE KRAVITZ' GUTS".
I mean come on... it just lacks *class*!
No egg...just don't care.
ALICIA KEYS IS STILL HOT[SPAM]!!!!!!!!!!
U KNOW IVE BEEN MARRIED GOING ON 13 YEARS AND IT IS HORRIBLE THAT A MAN CAN BE WITH HIS WOMAN 10 YRS. HAVE A CHILD THEN SAYS TO HIM SELF LET ME CHEAT NOT ONLY ON MY WIFE BUT MY SON CUZ THE TIME HE SPENT WITH KEYS THAT TIME WAS FOR HIS WIFE AND SON BASTERD I HOPE SHE GIVES U SOMETHING AND I HOPE SHE LOSE'S HER VOICE PIMPLE FACE HOE
Give Praises when Praises are due. LMAO
@Tempertease......... Who the hell are you, Match Maker . com...........
Show me some pictures...
I pretty much need to hear both sides. She can just be hurt and out for revenge. Make your mind up Mashonda. Did they or did they not have an affair? How you gonna say two different things? Do you have the Bey bug?
holla mto!! lol
DON'T PUMP YOUR NUTS NOW! YALL NEED AN ENEMA CUZ YALL STAY FULL OF ***!
MTO ya'll know *** well ya'll ain't black.
Talkin' all that mumbo jumbo when ya'll just as guilty of stealing from other sites.
The pot calling the kettle black are we?
i NEVER DiD LiKE ALiCiA PLEASE.... NEVER LiKE THOSE SiDE LiNE HOEZ...UGHHH...SiNGiN BOUT WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AND ALL THE REST OF THAT CORNY SHiD.. OH WELL LET HER DO HER...
I hear you MTO!!! :-)
i luv u guys but ur stories are mostly speculations i just wait to see if at least some of them come true but most of the time u guys are wrong.
... UMMMM ..... SO WHAT !!!!
Yeah Mto was right!!! Alicia was sleeping with a married man!! But I still love her nonetheless. We all fall *** sometimes.
i din even think that alicia keys would do something like that.
Wow, I thought she was classy. This makes me lose respect for her...def. won't be buying her music or supporting anything she does.
well, mashonda should learn to share. sharing is caring. get over it. it's just flesh.
flip that egg and make it crispy so i can eat it. i'm hungry.
there is nothing that ruffles my feathers like infedelity.
although i've never been cheated on,i think that this is the most painful,heartbreaking,life-changing event any woman can endure in a relationship.
i can't even imagine the depth of anger i'd feel upon discovering that my husband was being unfaithful to me.
if this is really true,then the news will not be very advantageous for alicia.
this will affect her career immensely.
an apology to mashonda is not out of the question,either.
infedelity is ruining our homes and our children. when someone makes the decision to be unfaithful it not only hurts the spouse,it hurts the children as well. this is so sad.
oh Lord..media take out yall realy need to STFU. Pretty much everything that gets reported on this website is LIES. and i agree with SanOn and most of the other ppl commentin here..yall create these stories to tear black celebrities down and discredit them. This website is really a JOKE, which is why i come here to laugh. Yall really just a piece of ***
l love alicia...a beautiful Bi-racial baby between us...with my genes?..oh how ROMANTIC....
@Goodgirl2 No i aint match maker i just dont like the idea of her dating some body like that
leave me alone dang
Clearly, you're not getting it, MTO, so allow me to break it down for you. This is why you get absolutely no respect from mainstream or urban media:
-Because you make sh*t up.
-Because you use words like "Ohh Snap!" in your headlines.
-Because your layout is tacky.
-Because your spell checker is obviously broken. -Because 97% of your own "exclusive" reporting is 100% false.
-Because you regularly steal from other sites while accusing said sites of stealing from you.
-Because overall, this site is just plain ghetto.
There's an urban gossip site that I've been visiting for quite a while. The owner of that site was recently able to parlay the success of her website into a position at a nationally syndicated radio show.
What have YOU done lately, MTO???
LOL...AT MTO FOR TRYING TO TOOT TOOT THEIR OWN HORN...LMAO....HOW ABOUT THE OTHER 99.9% OF YOUR FALSE STORIES....LETS SEE....DID MARIAH CAREY HAVE HER BABY YET....DID BEYONCE HAVE HER BABY...SHE SHOULD BE ON HER THIRD ACCORDING TO MTO....THE LIES GO ON AND ON....AND YOU WANT TO "TOOT" ROFLMAO
Kudos to you MTO!

Hey!guys, what you are discussing is nice.I am a sexy white girl who is a sports lover,just seeking hot dating or whatever comes. I'm fun, and know how to have a great time, I just upload my latest blog on ----- m u l t i r a c i a l l o v e.c o m---------
Am I the only one that gets annoyed when MTO starts bragging about their ''5 million'' readers? Sure...
that's what they get for assuming stuff. They need to stay out of folks business.
MTO..YOU ALL MAKE UP STORIES THOUGH..
AND MASHONDA IS LYING...SHE'S JUS A WOMAN SCORNED, BUT FEELS THA NEED TO GO AT SOMEONE WHO'S SUCCESSFUL LIKE A. KEYS IS..EVEN IF HER AND SWIZZ ARE HAVIN A RELATIONSHIP, I BELIEVE IT'S COMPLETELY PLATONIC...MASHONDA NEEDS TO FIND THA REAL REASON WHY HER RELATIONSHIP FU.CKED UP
You know, it's you MTO that has the egg on your face.
You distort the truth, stretch the truth and jst straight out lie. You continue to try to compare yourselves to the mainstream media, and get upset that it doesn't acknowledge you. I hate to tell you this, but you get no props because you are really no better, or no more, than an electronic rag; a tabloid on the internet. You fit right along side The Sun, National Inquirer and New York Post. You can continue to brag about "ump-teen" million readers, but in actuality, those numbers don't reflect the amount of readers you have, but just how many clicks you get to your site. You are a joke.
Well, I have had enough of you and your warped sense of journalistic nonsense. I am happy to close my account with you within a few days; long enough for maybe a few more people to read this and come to their senses as well.
In the clip you posted, not one time was the lady identified as Mashonda AND not one time did the speaker identify Swizz so there's no relevance here. Go back to the drawing board and post another clip or something concrete will ya' MTO?
I like Alicia. I hope this isn't true because I cannot support another woman that steals another woman's man. That's why I don't like Angelina Jolie. That is just not acceptable behavior.
I WISH I COULD GO AND FIND MY COMMENTS WHEN THIS STORY BROKE ON MTO..................I CLEARLY REMEMBER BELIEVING THE STORY B/C THAT ALICIA KEYS IS A DOG. NO ONE IS GONNA GET IN HER WAY OF WHAT SHE'S FEELING!!!!
SHE ALSO DID THE SAME THING WITH THAT CRUCIAL KEYS GUY. ISN'T HERE SOMEONE ELSE TOO????
