Beyonce has come under fire in the past for her overtly sexy image and what Bill O’Reilly says is an artist who puts out “exploitative garbage that you know harms impressionable children.” And now, actress Lily Tomlin is speaking out about the star, accusing the singer of “selling a lot of sex to teeny-boppers.”
“She is a pretty popular woman and she’s married to a very powerful man, but she’s still selling sex,” Lily told Pride Source while discussing Beyonce being tapped as a modern-day feminist.
She continued, “She’s selling a lot of sex to teeny-boppers. I don’t know. Who are her fans? Everybody … I like her! I don’t dislike her! But I don’t pay any attention to that because – I mean, she’s fantastically beautiful and dances, but, you know, it’s very suggestive. If I was a 10-year-old, I would try to emulate her like most 10-year-olds do … For me, young girls are too sexually available!”
The 74-year-old, who has been involved in a number of feminist and gay-friendly films, tells the publication that she is familiar with Bey, but that’s as far as it goes. “If you played her songs, I wouldn’t necessarily recognize them,” she said.
Tomlin added, “The culture is so sexualized with girls and women. I was in a recording studio and a little girl who was about 4 years old was watching TV, and somebody’s dancing on the TV in very elaborate sexually overt dance steps and the little girl goes, “Oh, she’s hot.” I’m thinking, this is a 4-year-old.”
…. And here comes the Beygency.
