Did she learn NOTHING from Saturday Night Live's Beygency?!
MaJOR feminist icon bell hooks just Bill O'Reilly-style slammed Beyoncé during a conversation this week with transgender advocate Janet Mock at The New School in Manhattan.
During the talk, Janet offered her own voluntary praise of Bey, saying that Destiny's Child was a huge inspiration amidst a sea of blonde pop stars…
But bell fired back, explaining that she's worried about the singer's influence on young females:

Madonna dropped in on a carnival fundraiser the daughter of Mohamed Al Fayed was organizing for The New School at West Heath in England this weekend.
Parents and children were shocked as the pop star casually walked by them. She even took the time to speak to the school's principal Christina Wells and made an announcement to the attendees.
After meeting with Madge, Wells said:
"This fundraiser will help grant a bursary for those young people whose lives have been damaged by abuse, bereavement, bullying or other trauma. We could never have expected such a huge star would have wanted to visit us. Madonna is very interested in the school because she loves to support underprivileged kids and she was particularly keen when she found out about the work we do. I was very nervous when I met her but she was very lovely."
Fayed's daughter Camilla Fayed had personally asked Madonna to attend so that she could raise awareness to the event.
A source said:
"She was more than happy to lend a hand and support - as she always is with charity work. But it was bizarre to see one of the world's biggest stars at such a normal event. She looked completely out of place."
Ha! We would have loved to see that!
