Entanglement - it's the word on everybody's lips. But what exactly does it mean?

Well, according to August Alsina's new song: "Entanglement is when you're tangled in them sheets."

In case you're not up to speed yet, let me give you a quick update. In an interview with The Breakfast Club's Angela Yee, US rapper August Alsina claimed he had been in a relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith. The muso also said that Will Smith knew about the affair. 

While Jada had initially denied the rumours, she eventually came clean in an episode of Red Table Talk where she called her relationship with August an "entanglement". 

Social media went crazy, and entanglement memes started popping up everywhere. However, speaking to Vulture, August said he understood why Jada used the term. 

"I don't know why that word is such an issue. I would agree [with Jada]. If you look up the definition of 'entanglement', it is a complex and difficult relationship. It was exactly that," he told the publication. 

Now, joined by Rick Ross, the rapper has released a track titled Entanglements in which he uses lines like: "You left your man to fuck with me, just to pay him back. Don't you know that's cold-hearted?" and "That ain't your girl, but I got the key to the crib and to your car (to the crib and to her heart). She don't wanna label shit, but she needs me in her life."
