Paper calls Beyonce a ‘raging narcissist,’ a hypocrite, and a ‘disgrace to feminism’

Beyonce GQ

Not everyone is sipping from the Beyonce fountain of self-obsession. The Guardian newspaper slammed Beyonce for being a “raging narcissist,” as well as a hypocrite who posed barely nude for a photographer who has been accused of sexual harassment.

In addition to calling singer Beyonce Knowles a ‘raging narcissist,’ the paper shreds Beyonce’s conflicting statements about feminism in the February issue of GQ magazine.

In the interview, Beyonce said:

“I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.”

The Guardian writes: “Knowles is right: it is ridiculous that American women earn 77 cents to every dollar earned by men. This is almost as ridiculous as, say, a self-professedly powerful female celebrity (“I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest,” announces Knowles) complaining about men defining sexiness in a men’s magazine in which she poses nearly naked in seven photos, including one on the cover in which she is wearing a pair of tiny knickers and a man’s shirt so cropped that her breasts are visible. These photos, incidentally, were taken by the bafflingly successful American photographer, Terry Richardson, a man with a penchant for highly sexualised photos of women and who has been repeatedly accused of sexual exploitation and misconduct by young female models, which Richardson has denied.

      I think the moral is Beyonce cant tout feminism cause she posed with her clothes off. You know there are rules and chit.

      I think she’s means that celebrities wield power over their followers in the basic sense because they are idolized. But she has zero power over people who are not one of her drooling stans. I’m sure her narcissistic mind can’t fathom that there are people who don’t even know she exists.

      Girl you? Honey, I need an ab workout, leg workout, back workout, neck workout, and arm workout. How about that? The stuff that I want to jiggle, won’t. The stuff that I don’t want to jiggle, will. It’s like there’s a missing link between my body and the gym. Kinda like how there’s a missing link sometimes between Beyonce’s brain and her mouth.

      @ Sandrita May (Sandrita May = Sandra Rose) Since you celebrate the birthday of dead people, could you at least celebrate her life? :think:

      :applause: @ Sandra. Beyawnce probably doesnt know the defintion of feminism or what the movement was about, poor thing. I didnt care for her before and especially not after that interview. I was on another site and someone posted a link to an interview of dc and this fool was eating grapes or some sht like they was sunflower seeds while the man was trying to interview her. Poor michelle and kelly seemed scared to talk too much. I kinda liked that bey, she was her country ghetto self. She wasnt struggling for words, the part I saw at least. She seemed real then. I guess all that power & money messed up her personality.

Furthermore, just because the pics are in a men’s magazine doesn’t mean that B doesn’t think she looks sexy in them. Her whole point in the quote is that she be sexy by her own standards not by some man’s standards.
