I rarely give Compton rapper The Game’s utterances any serious consideration, but after appearing on the radio to discuss his upcoming VH1 reality show, “Marrying the Game,” I walked away shaking my head.

During the interview, the Game told New York’s Power 105.1 radio hosts that his on-again-off again relationship with his girlfriend Tiffney Cambridge suffered because of his infidelity, but things could have been better if she would just accept his cheating ways.

“I think that would be great man,” The Game said after being asked if polygamy should be legalized. “It would make it easier for women. The truth is every man cheats. Fat men, skinny men, basketball player, guy who can’t play, nerds, smart guy, it doesn’t matter.”

After asserting that every man cheats,  The Game quickly walked back his comments and claimed his cheating days were behind him.

“I’m not going to throw myself under the bus on this highly syndicated radio show,” he explained, “but every man cheats. A woman is better off assuming exactly what I said. You’ll be better off that way.”

Apparently, Game’s fiancé Tiffney Cambridge, a public school teacher, didn’t feel that things were “better off that way.” She supposedly called off the wedding due to his inability to keep it in his pants. Interestingly enough, The Game admitted that if Tiffney, or any other woman he was with, cheated he’d leave. Why? He’d never “understand” it.

Whenever I hear an admitted cheater say that women should just accept the fact that all mennot some, but all—will cheat, I have to call BS.

Instead of owning up to their own faults and missteps, they attempt to dupe women (and themselves) into thinking that infidelity is somehow branded into their DNA.

While the jury’s still out on whether men and women were meant to mate for life, once you make a commitment to be exclusive to your partner, you should honor it. And in the event that you can’t (or no longer want to), then it’s time to move on…no cheating necessary.

    Isn’t this like saying, ‘because I smoke crack every man smoke crack so just accept it’…. ‘When complete idiots believe and are convinced by their own rubbish. Join us at 10 pacific eastern time We’ll be talking with the rapper The Game..

    actually, i believe that people should be legally free to marry who and how many they want based on their own cultural beliefs.

    the gu’ment should not enforce morality.

  • Leo the Yardie Chick

    Since ‘polygamy’ is defined as ‘a marriage including more than two partners’, is he prepared to marry a woman every time he has an itch for new vagina? Otherwise, what he wants is a Wife(y) and assorted Side-Pieces. Dude…just stay single and sow your oats if commitment isn’t for you. >_<

    Also, I like how he'd bounce if his gf/wife decided to scratch her itches outside as well. <_<

  • Dangerous Negro

    I was just going to say that yea he may want to cheat but I’m sure he doesn’t want to marry all of these random women either.

    -__- How on Earth is The Game still relevant again? Please remind me

  • __A

    Yea. I don’t know many women that would be okay with sharing a man if they are in love with him. If it’s just a financial thing, then it might be okay. But many women get jealous about that kind of stuff.

    I think what he wanted to say is that women shouldn’t get upset about men cheating beause every man does it. He wants to scratch his itch every time it pops up. I doubt men want to provide for every woman they sleep with.

    I really don’t get men who think they can say that but then say it’s not okay for a woman to do it. I mean I know why they think that way. They want to screw whoever they want, but they’re territorial, but why do they think women would agree with that line of thinking. It only benefits men.

    Another fatherless male, clueless of the responsibilities of commitment and marriage, speaks. Just ignore.

  • ChillyRoad

    Can I just mention that our concept of both marriage and monogamy are recent Western Judeo-Christian inventions. Much of the world is polygamous while being committed. I’m not trying to be a moral relativist.

    I believe the healthiest societies and ones that grant women the most rights are monogamous ones. Meh!

  • The Patient One

    Actually, his dad was/is around.

  • Nipzie

    I hate to say this but the lame is telling somewhat of a truth. I think monogamy is an idea pushed on us through society; just like race, gender roles, and sexual orientation. Biologically, I think men and women are not meant to be with only one partner. I consider myself a loyal person, but I must admit that even I have have been sneaky and cheated on a boyfriend that I wholeheartedly loved, and it was strictly for physical satisfaction. All that talk about leaving a woman if she cheated is him pushing his misogynistic views (asshole).To be honest I think as people we are only as faithful as our options… But that’s just my opinion. Do I think as people we can be faithful in a marriage.. Well I think anything is possible with enough dedication and hardwork. To be faith I think GOD would need to be the center of your relationship because he’s the only devine intervention that can save that marriage. Ok that’s is all for my rant …

    The real problem when “people” want to push this BS that all men cheat, some women start to feel like they have to tolerate it so that they won’t always be alone. The problem with cheating is that it plays a portion into breaking up homes, transmitting STI/STD’s between several people and plays a role with children out of wedlock. A lot of women need to start having more self-pride and self-respect to not tolerate such BS and walk away when cheating comes to play. You cannot make someone take accountability for their actions if they have all this pride feeling like they’re entitled to it, but the writing will be on the wall and you can make the right choice for yourself.

    Lol good point. I was just thinking would he be so open and freeing with polyandry if his finance was stating the same thing from a woman’s perspective….most likely not she would be called every name in the book but I forgot with this double standard that what is good for the goose isn’t….

  • Pseudonym

    I don’t think people from nonpolygamous societies understand what polygamy entails. It becomes practiced in societies where women cannot live independent lives and after a bad war, many many are left widows with no means to support themselves. So a man takes them as a second wife and supports her family. It’s not simply having sex with a bunch of women. If a man with one wife is cheating, he’s probably having one nite stands or f* buddies (or even mistresses who at least know their place as #2), which is easy b/c he doesn’t have to give them anything he doesn’t want to give. For a polygamous relationship with women who are able to support themselves, you’ll have to come to the table with more than her rent and grocery money. You’ll probably have to be able to physically, emotionally, financially, spirituality, sexually, etc. satisfy multiple women b/c they will each see themselves as your wife and want to be treated as such. That’s A LOT of work! I know men with ONE wife and one or two kids who tire themselves out trying to take care of everyone at home.

    That’s shoveling the snow off multiple cars at 6 am, going all across town buying random food to satisfy the cravings of multiple pregnant women, that’s playing mediator when there’s wife beef, that’s having your finances voted on by a committee as opposed to another person, and that’s a whoooooole lotta grocery and beauty shop money. …and then you factor in multiple mother and father-in-laws…

    You can forget the idea of having any time in your life for yourself.

    I think polygamy sounds good when you don’t factor in having to satisfy your wives, as can be the case when you’re destitute in a war-torn country. But in the U-S-of-A without a religious reason to share a husband, I find it difficult to believe that women in this country would make good sister wives.

  • Kay

    Well…he does realize then, that polygamy would work both ways right?! Women would also have the option to have more than one man. But like most idiots that spout this nonsense, I’m sure he feels that should never be an option.

  • Kay

    I think this assessment is spot on. Has he seen “Sister Wives?” Some of those women are so bitter and tired that I heard one of his wives is thinking of divorcing him. You’ve got to share resources, time, energy, etc., etc. It’s not just sleeping with random people. Oh snap, cuz that would be an OPEN marriage. But then, she could sleep with other people too so…..there’s that whole equality thing. Keeps popping up.

  • __A

    Marriage, religion, social obligations, laws, morals and other such things are man made things encouraged in civilized societies to have stability. They’ve worked pretty well I guess. Some of these things cam be stifling if taken to Puritan extremes, but in my opinion they were very important in Western Civilization.

    Ditching these things requires that people are still moral enough to do the right thing. For example, look at single mothers and the lack of marriages in black neighborhoods. Maybe this system of having children oow would work if men did the right thing and took care of their children.

  • Z

    I’ve heard that many men in actual, real, polygamous societies shy away from entering into polygamous marriages due to the financial and emotional responsibilities involved. It’s not as great as it seems.

  • http://theaaridan.tumblr.com TheMuseintheMirror

    I’m sorry Game, you should be embarrassed. Cheating when you know you are in a committed relationship validates the fact that you don’t have ANY self respect for not only your partner, but yourself.

    Instead of putting the blame on yourself (and other men) and your own insecurities in your manhood, you put the blame on women who want nothing more than for a trustworthy, faithful, healthy relationship with men.

    Grow up and be a MAN.

  • Kam

    I think what Z is trying to say is that polygamy means MARRIAGE. Marriage to more than one person, but marriage all the same with all the responsibilities and commitments that come along with it.

  • Overseas_Honeybee

    Boy bye (and I do mean boy). Total foolishness and a huge assumption on his part. Consider the source.
    I also believe she knew exactly what the deal was when she met him but perhaps thought she could change him.
    Last I heard the wedding was back on and the show was set to air on VH1.

  • http://cupofjo-jo.blogspot.com bk chick

    I saw a special on the Game’s life, I think it was on MTV or VH1. Anyway, his way of thinking does NOT surprise me in the least. His past life was terrible! The amount of trauma and emotional scars a person in his shoes must end up with can probably rival the levels of a war vet. And the fact that he is still functioning on some emotional level to even find someone to who would want to commit to him is remarkable…or maybe he only attracts equally messed up people or women who just want the money.

  • Ms. Write

    Advice for Game: Have a seat. Have several seats. Men always try to justify their infidelity by saying all men cheat. Umm…no they don’t. Take responsibility for your own cheating ass…smh

  • P

    I’m sorry Game, you should be embarrassed – and by him not being so or remorseful. He’s not done with his cheating ways. I know that is stepping into the judgment zone. Even if he is or is not; as @ Rosey stated: she seems too nice and smart…she can do better.

  • Ravi

    Never cheated and never will. It’s not from lack of options either. It’s really just not that hard to keep it in your pants. It doesn’t take divine intervention either. Just a little self control.

  • GoE

    Say what you want to about Evelyn L., she got out of there and quickly. While her stock is still high, she knows someone else will come along. Don’t wait until you’re too old and no one desires you.

    Pay attention,Tiffney!

  • Go Stand In A Corner

    He looks sorry!

  • http://stimulatemymind.wordpress.com hpymrzsimmons

    I cannot stand when men take the ignorant stance that somehow they are genetically predisposed to sleep with whatever passes by them. If God wanted us to be like animals he would had had us be unintelligent, forest-dwelling, emotionless neanderthals. I don’t think that just being a man is an excuse to validate philandering ways. If you cannot be faithful to the person you choose to be with than BE SINGLE! Why drag someone else along for the ride, cause heartache and expect them to – unnaturally – accept that they will not be your one and only?

    To that point, women also have to have more self respect for themselves. I would not stay in a relationship if my partner cheated on me because I refuse to be less than your 100%. If you have to go out and compensate for me for whatever reason than you need to go ahead and just be with the next girl. Trust me, I can find someone else. And, it’s not worth it to live your life with someone who doesn’t cherish you enough to not run to someone else’s bed.

    Some men need to get a grip and realize that they are not living in the woods and we are not dogs. If you don’t want to be with one person than by all means, don’t. You are not obligated to be married or even in a relationship. But, if you do decide to make a commitment to a woman, or a man. Than have enough respect for them and their feelings to BREAK UP with them if you have the urge to sow your seeds.

    and a ‘good’ woman like yourself has no need for sexual variety?
    variety is just for ‘bad’ folk?
    meh.

  • http://stimulatemymind.wordpress.com hpymrzsimmons

    Sure, I like sexual variety. That’s why I do a “variety” of things with the love of my life. If you are in a relationship and have the urge to get “variety” from another person then clearly there might be something lacking within your relationship. Maybe you need to talk to your wife/husband and explain to them that you are getting bored in the bedroom and we need to switch it up. If you can’t maintain simple communication with your spouse to that level then there are more problems in your relationship than what’s going on behind your closed doors.

  • Do better

    Wow…this waste of human DNA is just pure ignorance through and through. He really breaks the mold for ridiculous statements! FYI I have a friend who’s hung out with him personally (what girl doesn’t in the LA area?) and he’s extremely insecure and wears his C-list (generous) celeb status like a pathetic badge of honor. This is the underlying issue with all of these promiscuous men. They are painfully unsure of themselves and their masculinity because no one taught them the REAL way to self-esteem as a man is through hard work, providing for a family and having some decency and morals. So instead of being a productive and whole person, he goes around with his fragmented sense of self and feels relief only when getting his self esteem propped up by some equally self-esteem deficient promiscuous woman, i.e. a hoe. The Game has never experienced true love, which is the love of self, so naturally he cannot love women and experiences them as a never-ending barrage of interchangeable body parts. I would rather kill myself personally than live like Game.

  • Gail

    And in other news, the Game endorses Mitt Romney for President.

  • jordin

    lmao!!

  • HERSHEYKISS

    AMEN!!!

  • HERSHEYKISS

    Thank You! It seems as if people come up with every excuse under the sun to cheat,but on the same note they cannot take it themselves. It is really simple. Treat someone like you want to be treated.
