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.
