SUCK IT , Rush Limbaugh!
Empress Beyoncé was criticized recently for being a hypocrite and an anti-feminist because she decided to title her upcoming global musical extravaganza The Mrs. Carter World Tour AND because her new single is called Bow Down/I Been On…
Decisions that MUST mean she only wants to be identified as Jay-Z AKA Sean Carter's wife, that she thinks all women should simply "bow down" to their husbands, and that she bases her own value solely on what she is in regards to her partner-in-marriage, RIGHT?
Unsurprisingly, girl is NOT forsaking her long time musical message of female emPOWERment. Lady Bey addressed the haterz in a recent interview, stating:
"I guess I am a modern-day feminist…
I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I'm just a woman, and I love being a woman.
I feel like Mrs. Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I've ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, 'OK, this is what you were born to do'. The purpose of my body became completely different."
And how narrow minded can some people be to believe that if a woman LOVES her husband and wants to do things for them/identify with them it's somehow turning back time on women's rights!
The whole point about feminism is that women have the right to CHOOSE whatever the f*ck they want to do, and not feel FORCED into making a decision because society deems it so.
Plus, who wouldn't be proud to be married to Jay Z?! From what we can tell, he's nothing but a doting, caring, loving husband and father!
