Since Beyonce's last album secretly dropped, the more I listen to it, the more I love it. You've all heard what everyone else has said about this album, it's sexy, liberating, honest, raw. It's all of that.
When I heard Beyonce and JayZ were opening the Grammy's, well, I already knew they were going to drop "Drunk in Love" on us. No need for me to wonder if it would be something the little kids should watch because well...information is readily available on these here internets. Even if I hadn't seen the video and heard the song it would have been easy for me to find out what it was all about.
Surfboard kinda takes on a different meaning and well...you figure that out pretty quickly.
It didn't take the internet long to explode after the performance because it was "soft porn" and the kids were up watching the Grammy's. How do we explain this to our kids? What about all the little girls who look up to Beyonce and want to be her? What did that performance teach them?
Well...it should definitely teach them that their parent's aren't utilizing technology properly because all of that could have been avoided had you added up 2 plus 2 and put your parental hat on while considering poor little woo-woo's innocent eyes. I agree it wasn't kid appropriate but I also don't trust award shows to be kid appropriate. Anything can break off. Sandra Bullock just dropped an 'F' bomb on an award show.
Not kid appropriate.
And the list can go on.
What is/was your take on the outrage? Did you have any thoughts regarding? Did your kids watch? How old are they?
