This is really sad to hear.

If you're not watching FOX News, you're apparently missing out on some heated conversations about Beyoncé!
The Queen Bey sparked a dispute between Bill O’Reilly and Russell Simmons last night over the artistic value of her song Partition!
The R&B mogul (who was on the show to discuss his new book on meditation) had to defend B because The Factor host has a major problemo with her putting out a single so seXXXy!
Watch yourself, Bill! We don’t take too kindly to people badmouthing our gurl!
Bill actually argued that Beyoncé was being irresponsible by glamorizing sex when so many young women idolize her!
“Why on earth would this woman do that? Why would she do it when she knows the devastation that unwanted pregnancies and fractured families [cause]. Why would she do that?!”
Russell was having none of this nonsense though!
He fired back explaining that music is a reflection of our reality. Beyoncé is an artist who puts out music - not raises YOUR children for you!
Billy, we think you need to be a bit more selective with the battles you wage. Isn’t this argument a tired one?
Sex will always be in music, in movies, on TV. You work in media. You should know that!
Let Beyoncé do what she does best which is be an AH-Mazingly talented artist! And you focus on staying fair and balanced (hehe) 5 nights a week on cable.
Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to go blast Partition, pleaseeeee!
Ch-ch-check out the clip from the interview (above)!
