Jay-z To Beyonce “I Want A Divorce”
Ok So maybe thats not what he said… But thats definitely what Sasha Fierce said to Beyoncé in this “Video Phone Remix” video (I hate writing that)… Now before I go all the way in I’ll give all you Beyoncé fans stans a disclaimer:
Disclaimer: I’m about to go in
There, so if you dont like it, then leave now..
For those staying, watch the video (so you know what I’m talking about) and……..
Ok, for those of you who are still here, I pose these question to you…WTF is wrong with Beyoncé Sasha Fierce?? Why does this song have a video?? When did Beyoncé become a strippers role model as opposed to the children she claims to love?
I am a straight adult male so of course I liked the video (minus Lady Gaga’s dead looking face) and I enjoyed the dancing and such of scantily clad adult women. But the key word is ADULT! Beyonce has become the latest brand (besides Disney) to cross over and market sex to children for financial gain. money is great but where are your morals?
Because most of you are not up to speed I’m not even going to get into all the “illuminati rituals” they just went through in that video. Lets focus on an easier topic: The children
What responsibility does Beyoncé have to her core fan base which are little girls ages 10 – 16? (Whether she wants to believe it or not)
Forget about the parents responsibility. You can attack them until the cows come home but the simple fact is that the artist does have a personal responsibility for their content when they are marketed as role models. Yes the parents should monitor what their children watch and listen to but how much can you monitor when it is everywhere in society? This song is not a radio single. This is an album cut for the adults who purchased the album. This video is going to be, (if it isnt already), on 106 & park, and whatever else nonsense video shows come on BET and the like. Who is gonna monitor the children then?? Who’s gonna censor BET (Not Deborah Lee-vil)
N*ggas (not to be confused with black people) already have this preconceived notion that everything on BET is suitable for every one of an African-American origin from toddler to senior citizen which is inherently false. This is another addition to the problem.
I volunteer with elementary school kids about 2 – 3 times a week. The day after the video was released online, (I hadn’t watched it yet) I heard 2 of the little 5th grade girls singing the song (which I also never really listened to, I’m more of a “How Beyoncé looks” fan than a fan of her music) and dancing to it. I stopped them from gyrating as they were but I paid it no mind. These children have already been ruined by BET this sort of thing so I honestly thought nothing of it. Once I saw the video I was livid. I have never seen such a blatant attempt to attack the minds of children in my life. The video is like one big brainwashing ceremony from the flickering faces to the easily mimicked stripper dance moves.
So my question is now, who is responsible? Who is gonna take the blame for the rise in teen pregnancy? Who is gonna take the blame for the increase in STDs? Who is gonna stand up and tell the status quo that this rhetoric is no longer acceptable… That while sex does sell, it should not, and WILL not be sold to children?
