Who Is Slamming Beyonce Now?

Published

on

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.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
