Remember when the words “First Lady” and “class” were basically synonymous? Good times.
Michelle Obama has basically ruined that, especially with her outspoken admiration of Beyoncé. (In case you were wondering, she totally wishes she could be her. As in, she actually said that in real life.)
Yesterday, FLOTUS wished Beyoncé a happy birthday on Twitter. Because that’s what FLOTUS does now.
On one hand, I expect that to happen. The Obamas are more interested in their celebrity status than actually leading. It's been that way for years. But Michelle added a little something to her special tweet that REALLY irked me.
A role model for young girls around the world? How? On what world? In what universe, even?
Yeah, her raunchy lyrics, (don’t you just all want your girls singing, “He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown?”) skimpy outfits and sexually explicit music videos are all so empowering to women. And the way she bailed out Baltimore thugs? So inspiring.
I know some people will say, “So what? Who cares about Michelle Obama and her woman crush on Beyoncé?”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Beyoncé and her husband have a massive amount of influence within the Obama administration. That should be concerning enough. She’s also a pop culture icon, and young people listen to her. For crying out loud, there’s actually a “Church of Bey.” That exists. Not to mention the fact that the left believes she’s the actual embodiment of feminism.
These lyrics= female empowerment.
"Can you lick my Skittles, it's the sweetest in the middle/ Pink is the flavor, solve the riddle""I can't wait till I get home so you can turn that cherry out/ I want you to turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out""Don't slip off when it drip off on top of you""Gimme that daddy-long stroke""I get filthy with that liquor, give it to me" "Why can't I keep my fingers off it, baby, I want you""We woke up in the kitchen saying 'How the hell did this sh-t happen?'""We sex again in the morning, your breastses are my breakfast." (Note: This one belongs to Jay Z. Cover your ears, Blue Ivy.)"First both of my legs go back on your head, and whatever you want, yeah baby, I'm bad""Driver roll up the partition, please/ I don't need you seeing 'Yonce on her knees" "Now my mascara running, red lipstick smudged/ Yeah, he's so horny he wants to f—/ He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse/ He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown/ Oh Daddy, Daddy, he didn't bring the towel/ Oh baby, baby, we better slow it down""Over there I swear I saw them cameras flash/ Hand prints and footprints on my glass/ Hand prints and good grips on my ass" "Private show with the music blasting/ He like to call me 'Peaches' when we get this nasty" "I'm in my penthouse half-naked/ I cooked this meal for you naked"
But Beyoncé. She’s brilliant. That’s Michelle’s girl. She’s on fleek. Tell yo famo and you’ll get some mad political gainz from the Obamas.
