BeyHive Behave: Piers Morgan Doesn’t Like The “New” Beyoncé
Piers Morgan is at it again, but this time he’s set his sights on Beyoncé. And as expected, he catching major flack … which of course, he wanted.
The attention seeking Piers penned a piece for The Daily Mail titled, “Jay-Z’s not the only one who needs to be nervous about Beyonce, the born-again-black woman with a political mission.” In the purposely aggravating write-up, Morgan states severely inflammatory suggestions.
The new Beyoncé wants to be seen as a black woman political activist first and foremost, entertainer and musician second.
I still think she’s a wonderful singer and performer, and some of the music on Lemonade is fantastic.
But I have to be honest, I preferred the old Beyoncé.
The less inflammatory, agitating one.
The one who didn’t use grieving mothers to shift records and further fill her already massively enriched purse.
The one who didn’t play the race card so deliberately and to my mind, unnecessarily.
The one who wanted to be judged on her stupendous talent not her skin color, and wanted us all to do the same.
So, because Bey has chosen to evolve her music, speak on the current state of America and use her enormous platform to bring awareness to the injustices in the Black community, Mr. Morgan is uncomfortable. And he thinks he should speak on this — but not only speak on it, he has gone to social media to Tweet and re-tweet about his feelings. In doing so, he has agitated not only the BeyHive, but respected journalist and entertainers who see right through his veiled attempt at sparking a furious dialogue.
But Piers, didn’t stop there. He sent out more Tweets to seemingly incite a social media riot and troll the Beyonce fans he knew would respond.
Seriously, Piers Morgan had nothing better to do with his time? This is just desperate and pathetic.
