I just wrote an article about how all women are feminists…but are just afraid to admit it. I went on a huge rant about how female celebrities are doing a disservice to themselves and their fans by not admitting to being a feminist. Leave it to the Queen Bey to prove me right!
Beyonce is on the cover of Vogue UK’s May issues (looking fierce of course) and in the interview she says, “But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept.”
She’s flawless. God, really….she’s beyond human. Beyonce has come under some scrutiny for her latest single “Bow Down” some say it’s anti-feminst….I say nay! NAY ON THAT! The song in question has the following lyrics:
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.
It’s the “bow down, bitches” part that is getting flack—mainly from Rush Limbaugh. Not that Limbaugh matters or understands anything let alone feminist ideals—but I’ll address his attack.
“She’s done a total 180,” Limbaugh said of the star. “Beyonce’s now saying ‘Go ahead and put up with it!’ … She’s going to call herself Mrs. Carter on the ‘Bow Down B—-s’ tour.” He added, “She got married, she married the rich guy, she now understands. She now understands that it’s worth it to bow down. And she’s passing on that advice.”
But what the song is actually saying is: bow down bitches that thought I couldn’t make it. Bow down bitches that thought they were on my level. It’s an egotistical song…now a submissive song. Shockingly, Limbaugh missed the point! He also missed the part where it says: “I took some time to live my life, But don’t think I’m just his little wife, Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted, This my sh-t, bow down bitches”.
Oh, she took some time from making millions on her own to be a wife and mother…that means she bows down to her rich husband? SHE’S RICH! Man, that Limbaugh…what a douche amiright?
Anyway, Queen Bey is at it again. She’s just being perfect, making millions, raising a baby, having a successful long term relationship in the entertainment world and Limbaugh is fat, frustrated, idiot that couldn’t get a lady even if he paid for it—he certainly couldn’t get Bey!
In response to his idiotic take on her life Beyonce had this to say, “I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child,” she said. “I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do.’ The purpose of my body became completely different.”
Ugh, stop being so perfect, Beyonce!
