Wow! Who saw this coming? Apparently, Kerry Washington has started a little scandal by criticizing Beyoncé. Yes, you read that right. Beyoncé!
Some conflicted fans are now wondering if they can be Gladiators and loyal subject of Queen Bey.
While many people are crazy about Mrs. Bey, not everyone is on her bandwagon. Reportedly, one of those people is Emmy nominated TV star and new mommy, Kerry Washington.
According to Dish Nation, an inside source said that Kerry “hated how Beyoncé relies on her body and sexual innuendo to sell records…Kerry thinks Beyoncé should spend less time shaking her booty and more time pushing other agendas, like the value of education and healthy eating, as well as promoting book reading,” said source.
The actress, comedian, producer and writer, Lily Tomlin previously shared a similar view to Kerry’s. In June, ProudSource asked Lily whether she thinks Beyoncé is a feminist, the veteran comic said: “She is a pretty popular woman and she’s married to a very powerful man, but she’s still selling sex to teenyboppers.”
The Dish Nation source said, “Kerry wholeheartedly agrees with Lily. She also thinks the way Beyoncé is reveling in rumors about her private life is, at best, cheesy, and, at worst, dangerous.”
For quite some time now, rumors about Jay-Z allegedly cheating on Beyoncé have been rampant. Some feel she is taking advantage of the gossip for self promotion. In contrast, Kerry keeps her personal life so private that many didn’t know she’d become a mother until weeks after her first child was born.
“To Kerry, it seems like Beyoncé is sending a message to young women that standing by your man, even if he cheats on you, is perfectly acceptable. While Kerry’s peers, like Beyoncé, exploit themselves for career advancement, she’s happy to keep her private life under wraps and let her talent do the talking. Kerry wishes Beyonce would do the same,” the inside source added.
Kerry has received her own similar criticism over the fictional role of Olivia Pope on “Scandal.” On the show, Kerry plays a single women who’s in a passionate affair with a married man.
How do you feel on what the inside source said about Kerry? Do you think Beyoncé is a feminist? Are you allegiances split?
