|Mike Huckabee, Jay Z and Beyonce|
In the latest installment of politicians speaking recklessly about musicians they know nothing about, failed Presidential candidate and Former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee voiced his opinion on music’s royal couple Jay Z and Beyonc・ In his new book coming out titled God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, Huckabee not only has a chapter where he mocks prison rapes, but he also concludes the veteran Brooklyn rapper has taken on misogynistic gender roles by exploiting his wife Bey as a “sex object. Huckabee’s opinion of the dynamic duo was sparked by their performance of “Drunk In Love” at last year’s Grammy award ceremony. Read the excerpt from his latest book posted by U.S. News & World Report on Thursday.
“…Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?”
So according to Huckabee, Beyonc・can’t think for herself and Jay Z preys on his wife for financial and sexual gain. Jay didn’t take too well to people talking about his daughter, so speaking negatively about his wife is bound to ignite a not-so-pleasant reaction.
Does anyone else think Mike Huckabee has completely lost his marbles?
And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed! the stones of the sanctuary are poured out in the top of every street.
