‘Beyonce; The Shameless Jezebel’.

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( I have read a lot of commentary about Beyonce’s performance at the MTV’s Video Music awards which aired last night(August 24, 2014).  Beyonce is NOT a good role model for our young girls. Over the years her lyrics have gotten more vulgar and her performances have become more salacious.

Last night, during her performance, she had her legs open, it was VERY sexual , and this took place in front of her DAUGHTER. Clearly if Beyonce doesn’t care about HER daughter watching and listening to heavily sexually laced lyrics and performances….she can’t care about YOURS.

Here are some of the songs that she performed snippets from (I had to Google both the song list and the lyrics because I don’t listen to her music, but I wanted to showcase some of the lyrics).

“I can’t wait till I get home so you can tear that cherry out, (turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out)”

Drunk In Love
I want to point out that this is the part of her performance where she literally had her legs WIDE open.

“I’ve been drinking, I’ve been drinking
I get filthy when that liquor get into me
I’ve been thinking, I’ve been thinking
Why can’t I keep my fingers off it, baby?
I want you, na na
Why can’t I keep my fingers off it, baby?
I want you, na na

Last thing I remember is our beautiful bodies grinding up in the club
Drunk in love

We be all night, love, love
We be all night, love, love

Then I fill the tub up halfway then ride it with my surfboard, surfboard, surfboard
Graining on that wood, graining, graining on that wood
I’m swerving on that, swerving, swerving on that big body
Been serving all this, swerve, surfing all in this good, good”


“Let me sit this ass on you
Show you how I feel
Let me take this off
Will you watch me?
That’s mass appeal
Don’t take your eyes
Don’t take your eyes off it
Watch it, babe
If you like you can touch it, baby
Do you, do you wanna touch it, baby?

Rock steady rock hard
Rock steady rock hard
Rock steady rock hard
Rock steady”


Driver roll up the partition please
I don’t need you seeing Yoncé on her knees
Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
We ain’t even gonna make it to this club

oh, there daddy, daddy didn’t bring the towel
Oh, baby, baby we better slow it down
Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
And we ain’t even gonna make it to this club

Take all of me
I just wanna be the girl you like (girl you like)
The kinda girl you like (girl you like)”
Bow Down

I know when you were little girls
You dreamt of being in my world
Don’t forget it, don’t forget it
Respect that, bow down bitches

Bow down bitches, bow bow down bitches
Bow down bitches, bow bow down bitches”


Drop the bass, mayne, the bass get lower
Radio say, “Speed it up, ” I just go slower
I sneezed on the beat and the beat got sicker
Yoncé all on his mouth like liquor
Like, like liquor, like, like, like liquor”

As you read the lyrics and (remember these are just partial lyrics), imagine our young girls singing along. Imagine these lyrics finding residence in the subconscious minds of our daughters. Not only do we have these sexually charged lyrics, but she has provided visual aids in the form of videos and performances. Also once again, here we have yet ANOTHER BLACK WOMAN, promoting the word bitch.

If a male performer had showcased a raunchy, sexually charged performance, if he and a bunch of men were shirtless,and the lyricsbeyoncedancing-2014 were equally sexual and he said “bow down bitches”, if he touched himself in a suggestive manner, women would be in an uproar, we would be offended, we would call for a banning of that artist or a public apology. A woman does it and she’s applauded. This is because we are extremely hypocritical.

During part of her performance , an excerpt of Chimanda Ngozi’s speech was displayed on the screen;

“We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings the way that boys are. We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls ‘You can have ambition, but not too much’,” says the voice-over. “Feminist. The person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.”

I take it that Beyonce thinks the first line of that speech means it’s OK to teach our girls to be whores. Feminists want all this equality but somehow the scales remain unbalanced when it comes to accountability. Go figure.

A lot of people have made comments like she is grown and she is simply stating what goes on between a husband and wife in their bedroom. That would be acceptable, but it’s going on in OUR living rooms. It’s going on in the mp3 players and in our daughter’s play list. What Beyonce does in her bedroom is her business. What she does in front of our daughters is MY business, and if you care about the lack of morals that is found in our community, you’d make it your business too.

    @Gina, I feel the same thing. what she does behind closed doors is her business. However, what is sacred anymore? Wow

    Hating on Black women again I see. The last article I read by you, you were doing the same thing. There are legitimate points regarding the lyrics & some of Beyonce’s performances that are not appropriate for young ladies under the age of 18 to see/hear & it sometimes appears that she has a narcissistic personality; but as others have pointed out, she married first, had her child, & is working to make her money. I saw a documentary she did putting one of her shows together & she was on point in how her show should be performed. I think some of her maturity issues lie in that she started out as a pre-teen (I think) in the music industry & she has never fully matured/developed as an adult in some areas of her life. I don’t think she finished high school (wonder about middle school), performing to make money is all she knows. Hopefully, she will reflect/rethink about her actions/choices to do better seeing that now has a child to raise. Instead of writing a negative article about her, why don’t you write Beyonce & encouraging her to reconsider some her choices when it comes to performing & the songs she sings. Also, before Beyonce came on the scene, there were derogatory songs written by rappers, r&b singers, etc, i.e. Biggie Smalls (lyrics relating to raping a pre-teen); Uncle Luke (me so horny)-young kids were singing that song; anything by Akinyele; & there are plenty others.

    IMHO For those who say that celebrities should not be any child’s role model; you are correct, in a perfect world. Parents aren’t parenting due many reasons. Some valid, truthfully others not so much. The point is we are responsible for our own actions. Entertainers know their fan demographics typically teenagers, young people with disposable income due to not having many monetary obligation translation, impressionable minds. Be responsible with the messages you are sending while profiting from said demographics. I consistently have conversations with my teenage daughters about songs, life choices, unlady like behavior, reality TV personalities etc… But I know too many parents don’t have or don’t take the time to go in depth with no judgement and voice their opinions and why. I learned through my 2 years younger sister who told me our conversation and then seeing things play out for others as I described made her take heed to my advice. These conversations started before puberty it’s almost too late if you wait until then. Beyonce isn’t known for living a “whoish” lifestyle but her songs encourage it she is never specific about doing this within a committed relationship and her songs/videos were sexually charged long before marriage.

    I agree with the author of this article. If you think this raunchy performance by Beyonce is OK with her legs gapped all open in front of the whole world then there’s something wrong with you. When people complained about hardcore rap people said that was OK too and see where it got our young Black boys that bought into all the violent lyrics with the rapppers laughing all the way to the bank.

    She is getting old y’all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is it just me? Am I missing something? Are my eyes and ears decieving me? We brothers have constantly been scrutinized and demonized by the (media, women, white people, etc) for as long as I can remember and I am 56. Mostly during this time sisters have basically been given passes on there mess. No one has been checking there behavoir for so long that they think everything they do and have been doing is cool. I see sisters making a fool of themselves everyday on these raunchy tv shows cussing each other out, dressing like whores and just being trifling and disrespectful, I see them in music videos exploiting themselves and I see them with so low self esteem of themselves, no love for the natural beauty GOD gave them. They wear all this weave (in all these colors) like it is a badge of honor, it is disgusting to watch. I can go on and on about this but as soon as someone stands up and speaks truthfully about sisters and there faults they are attacked. Keep speaking the truth, I appreciate you and your honestly.

    This whole article is a mess. First of all it’s not Beyonce’s job to be a role model for our daughters. That’s the purpose of their parents. You don’t have to agree with her music. But let’s look at the facts, she’s been in the industry since her teens, she’s traveled the world, sold millions or records, was a part of one of the best female singing groups ever then she got married then had her daughter. She works hard for everything she has. She also is one of the most popular & wealthiest women in the world. She makes her OWN money and is also a philanthropist. That is what our daughter should look up to. I’m not a stan for Bey but you can knock her hustle.

    A woman being comfortable in her body & her sexuality doesn’t make her a whore. A woman that sleeps with multiple men at one time is a whore. Beyonce is married she is inspired by her love life with her husband. Folks always want to find something to fuss about. Its simple if you don’t want your daughter listening to her, turn off the tv, and actually control what she’s listening to. Don’t blame the entertainers for doing their job. How about you do your job as parents.

  8. Brooke says:

    You ankh niggas are ridiculous. It’s like a woman cannot do anything without a man scolding her, if a black woman doesn’t act the way you want her to you call her a whore and you tell her that’s she’s useless. Ridiculous. Get out of your 18th century views and stop being so ignorant, close-minded, and stupid. Do I sell you lecturing the brotha’s who sleep around? Nope, you never do, because a male is applauded for doing things such as that. You, sir, are a sexist pig.

  9. Shan says:

    Seriously? Something has to be mentally ill if you consider any celeb a role model for young girls. They are human too, just entertainers. Music is so sexually charged but you call out her for it? Have you heard hip hop and r and b lately??! I’m not a Beyoncé fan but she’s a married woman and working. Her music has been pretty much the same for a while you just aren’t really paying attention. And who are we to judge how she earns a living. What laws has she broken? Hypocrites, you would be happy if she was just another black woman statistics. If you don’t like her music don’t listen. Who are we to judge how she supports herself or her family. As far as her daughter hearing these lyrics she’s 2. Can you remember the things your parents said to you at 2? All she hear is the beat with not understanding of the lyrics. Come on, let’s not be hypocrites here.

    Just another example of how black culture is turning into whore culture.

  12. toomanygrandkids says:

    Her lyrics are very much different than her first album. I kinda liked her first solo album myself. But reading the above lyrics has sickened my stomach. Not trying to make excuses for her but maybe she wants to put her intimate business out there for the world to hear. I’m not saying that she should, but there’s a better, more sensual way Beyonce could’ve done it.

    I read online that people feel as though she stole the show. Her husband replied, after he and their daughter watched Beyonce’s performance, that his wife was the greatest entertainer in the world or something like that. Anyway, I’m not a fan of Beyonce, but I will listen to some of her songs. De Javu (sp), Irreplaceable, Love On Top, Upgrade U, and a couple others. I’m not even gonna buy or listen to her latest songs.

    Plus, I believe that Beyonce’s trying her best to appeal to “raunchy” music buyers/fans. It hasn’t dawned on her that young black girls are not only watching her but they and older females are imitating her.

  13. Ieisha says:

    I feel that she was a role she did everything she was suppose to she got married then had a daughter. She doing her thang she isn’t a bad person. Stop making it seem life she’s doing something wrong

  14. Gina says:

    My stomach’s turning. How did we get here? It seems like they’ve all been hired to personally assassinate any struggling form of guarding one’s innocence right out of who’s ever got any fight left in them. Are we really being forced into lowering our standards? Is there nothing precious anymore? If anybody’s bowing down, IT’S the one singing the song.She’s selling out the sanctity of motherhood to the entertainment business. GOODNESS GRACIOUS!

  15. Love this article! Well done.
