Beyonce’s Booty Shaking Grammy 2014 Dance: New York Post Blasts Jay Z

Read what New York Post columnist Naomi Schaefer Riley said about Beyonce’s controversial Grammy 2014 performance:
”What do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?
For years, these award ceremonies have pushed the envelope;
Beyoncé’s booty-shaking was certainly no worse than Miley Cyrus’s twerking or any number of other performances by Madonna, for instance. But there’s something particularly icky about doing it while your husband looks on approvingly.
“Honestly, I didn’t want to watch Jay Z and Beyoncé’s foreplay,” says Charlotte Hays, author of “When Did White Trash Become the New Normal?” Indeed, the happy couple seems to have completely blurred the line between what goes on
in their bedroom and what happens on national TV. So much for the woman that Michelle Obama has called “a role model who kids everywhere can look up to.”
Hays says, “It wasn’t surprising to see Jay Z, looking pleased at his wife’s hyper-sexualized. exhibition on stage.” After all, “he’s made a living singing lyrics that call women ‘bitches’ and ‘hos,’
so we shouldn’t be surprised that he objectified his own wife on stage.”
It is a little bit surprising, though, coming so soon after Beyoncé contributed to the recent feminist manifesto, the Shriver Report.
When she complains that “gender equality is a myth,” one wonders to what extent her consent to sell sexuality has contributed to the problem”.
