Beyonce might as well strap a saddle to her back because presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who has toiled in deserved obscurity for years, is now trying to ride Queen Bey back to political relevance.
Huckabee believes Beyonce is a poor role model for young girls who struggle with self confidence and a low sense of self-worth. Some young girls, who can’t identify with Bey’s over-sexualized self image, are made to feel inferior and worthless in the eyes of their peers.
Huckabee was invited to share his thoughts about Beyonce on The View, but former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams bucked back strong against the political exploiter.
“She doesn’t need to do songs like ‘Partition’ and ‘Drunk in Love’ in order to be an effective and an amazing talent,” Huckabee said.
Williams responded: “She’s amazing!”
“I just feel like that album and those songs is that one moment where she decided to probably do some songs she’s always wanted to do to shed that ‘I’m a good girl,’” said Michelle. “She had some freedom and she owned it and she took it, so I was definitely offended—I’m not the Carter spokesperson…
Michelle retorted: “But to hear some of those comments that you said, I thought were very, very, very low. I respect you and this is not to throw mud and tomatoes…”
What do you think of Huckabee’s views on Beyonce and Williams’ defense of her former bandmate?
