“I did not appreciate seeing the opening act of a woman putting her naked butt in the camera lens, spreading her legs in front of the camera, behaving in a pornographic manner, then her husband Jay-Z comes on. They might well have had sex with one another on stage,” one parent wrote on Eonline.com. “Where is the class? I want to ask Beyoncé if it’s OK if I stick my butt in her child’s face like she did mine?”
Otis Williams, the oldest living member of The Temptations, told reporters he didn’t approve of Beyonce’s Grammy performance.
“I watched Beyoncé at the Grammys and I have to say, I’m a huge Beyoncé fan, but what she did with Jay-Z, I thought, ‘No you ain’t, girlfriend’!” Williams said.
Another parent wrote: “This program aired at 7:00 PM and was filled with obscene dancing and language. My 16-year-old daughter was viewing the show with me and she had the good sense to say ‘this is totally inappropriate.’”
Beyonce’s performance was certainly not for prime-time family viewing, but I’m not going to embrace a lecture about sex, race and American culture from the likes of Bill O’Reilly.
