Garcelle Beauvais is letting the Beyhive know that she did not diss Beyonce.
The ageless beauty, best known as Fancy on “The Jamie Foxx Show,” recently caught up with TeamBeautiful and shared her thoughts on being a sex symbol. Along with saying “there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it,” she gave Queen Bey a few tips on how to keep it classy and sexy at the same time. Well, Beyonce’s loyal fan base didn’t like that too much and they started a digital bash session against the actress.
In response to the backlash, Garcelle took to her Twitter account to defend her remarks and let everyone know she has nothing but love for the “Drunk in Love” songstress.
“I love Beyonce! What I said was taken out of context, and of course I support women being sexy,” the mother of three wrote.
Check out her original statement below and tell us your thoughts in the comment section.
HB: Speaking of entertainment, you were a sex symbol for many years. How do you feel about being viewed in this way and how does it affect your womanhood?
GB: For me, you’re obviously flattered when someone calls you sexy or thinks you’re sexy. I think that’s great. But, for me now, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it. I think you can wear a great short dress, but if you have long sleeves and you’re only showing leg. I think you have to stick to a body part and show that. I don’t think you have to show all of it. As I get older, I still want to be sexy, but I want to do it in a different way. I want to do it in a way that’s more classy. Certain things are just too overt for kids. I love Beyonce. I love her. I think she’s beautiful and talented. But, I think there has to be a fine line where you have to take responsibility for what you do. I think it’s good to be sexy, but sexy can come across in so many different ways. It doesn’t have to be everything showing out grinding, all of the time.
