Michelle Obama was shocked by a tape released of Donald Trump from more than a decade ago. Trump’s comments about women WERE deplorable.
On the other hand, Michelle Obama adores Beyoncé, once stating that the popular chanteuse is the one person in the world she’d like to change places with. In that light, I’d like to provide context to the Trump drama by rerunning a Quiner’s Diner blogpost from two years ago:
Beyonce’ Knowles is one of the most glamorous celebrities on the music scene.
She could be such a positive influence on young women if she chose. Sadly, she chooses to corrupt with her latest song, “Partition.”
Its lyrics are vulgar, turning a certain White House intern’s name into a verb. An excerpt:
Driver roll up the partition please/ I don’t need you seeing Yonce on her knees …
Oh he so horny, yeah he want to f—
He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse
He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown
I just wanna be the girl you like, the girl you like
Ms. Knowles, you are the proud parent of a baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter. I’d like you to read her these lyrics as she grows up. Do you think your words would be a positive influence on her?
If not, why are you spreading such embarrassing and nefarious song lyrics to young girls throughout the world? Think of the harm you have done with this single song.
Aren’t you embarrassed by portraying women in such a bad light, as such objects of pleasure for a man ?
Shame on you Beyonce’. You could be so much more.
