“I Want To Ask Beyoncé If It’s Okay If I Stick My Butt In Her Childs Face Like She Did Mine?” Parents still Angry at Beyoncé’s Grammys Performance

beyonce-grammys-performance-2014A month after the Grammys aired, it seems that in the time that passed after January 26, the FCC was flooded with quite a few complaints over Beyoncé’s performance of “Drunk in Love” alongside Jay Z. She opened the show, and as we all saw, her performance was quite risqué. Her backside was out, she was writhing on a chair, and there was even a booty palming moment when Jay entered the stage. It was controversial on social media, but it was even more controversial with parents, who reportedly filed more than 40 indecency complaints against the singer and CBS.

The complaints, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, showed that people took issue with everything from her outfit, to the fact that such a performance was aired at the very beginning of the show, at 8 p.m., a time when people’s kids were still up. As someone put it, she was behaving like an adult film star: “Porn is hardly an acceptable way to demonstrate marital love in front of children, and at 8pm children ARE watching.”

One complaint went quite far:Bey-complaint

Another person said: “Her spread eagle poses barely covered her vulva and the smoke machine didn’t solve the problem.”article-2546505-1AFC30A900000578-798_964x687

But while Beyoncé was the subject of most of the ire from viewers about the Grammys, other people who were targeted include Katy Perry for her performance of “Dark Horse,” which some felt was too dark (and others called “demonic”), and the mass wedding that took place during Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ performance. People claimed Perry was literally taking part in “the summoning of Satan,” while others said that the mass wedding was an attempt to force the “gay agenda” on viewers.

Nawa o! Americans though . . .! I understand why people took issue with Beyoncé’s performance, though I’m surprised by the anger at the other performances. However, I think I’m more surprised by the fact that folks are still sending letters and hitting up the FCC like that. Who knew!?

What are your thoughts?

    I have not watched Beyonce’s performance (because I have no interest whatsoever in these types of events). Even though it looks obscene, these people need to stop complaining. It has passed, it has passed. What do they want again? Or do they want to rewind it and correct it? Abeg leave the woman alone.
    When I was younger, I could not watch or listen to anything that did not meet my parents’ approval. As I grew older, the regulating reduced.
    You are your child(ren)’s parents not Beyonce and Jay Z, therefore, your child is your responsibility! Beyonce is not mama America! Please train your own child and stop complaining. I’m not trying to say Beyonce is right oh, but enough is enough.

    • Mama America. LMAO! That’s a good one.

      LMAO! Dan, you’re a class act o. Just couldn’t help laughing out loud at this comment and you’re so right, parents owe it to their kids and wards to shield them away from whatever they consider inappropriate. I’m not a Beyonce fan but I think its totally unfair to just heap all the blame on her. Haba, she was only doing her thang! Abegii, make dem free her jare.

    “Then Jay-Z comes on, they minus [might as?] well have had sex with each other on stage.”

    Really? Were they talking about the same show I watched?
