‘It’s a sad day when our kids can’t even watch the Grammys’: Beyoncé takes heat from parents over risqué performance

article-2546569-1AFC30A900000578-912_634x498Beyoncé’s Grammy Awards performance was slammed by concerned parents on Sunday as they deemed the incredibly risqué routine too explicit for children to watch.

The 32-year-old singer wore a revealing black thong bodysuit over fishnet tights to perform a rendition of her Drunk In Love track alongside husband Jay Z at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

However Beyoncé’s sexy dance routine, which aired at 8pm on both coasts and at 7pm central time, left many furious parents posting comments on social media that the performance was ‘disrespectful’ and entirely inappropriate for children to watch.

From start to end, the mother-of-one’s routine could only be described as both seductive and risqué. She opened the show straddling a chair then proceeded to writhe around on it before twerking her way up to a standing position.

Belting out the lyrics to the explicit song, many of which had been bleeped out, it wasn’t too long before she was joined onstage by husband Jay Z, who looked dapper in a black spotted tuxedo.

Getting up from the chair, Beyoncé then embarked in a spot of back-to-back slow and sexy dancing with her husband, running her hands up and down his leg and bottom in moves Miley Cyrus would have been proud of.

The 44-year-old rapper couldn’t help but get touchy feely with his wife, clasping his hands on her famous derriere and giving her a sultry kiss mid-song.

The audience at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles went wild for the first live joint performance of the song from music’s number one couple, who raked in a combined $95million last year.

However the audience at home appeared to be less impressed.

Viewer Katie Stapp wrote: ‘Come on people!! Yeah Beyoncé has an amazing voice but that outfit?!?!? Completely no class. Give children something to look up to #absurd.’

And Stephen G. Peters tweeted: ‘Sorry Beyoncé!!! Class ALWAYS wins! It wins for our children. Sad day when our kids can’t even watch the Grammy’s! #Puzzled.’

Beyoncé’s performance comes after she admitted in a recent mini-documentary that she is proud to embrace her sexuality. She said: ‘I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it. And I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me.’
