Beyonce Criticized for Being Too Sexual During Grammy Performance
Singing latest hit ‘Drunk in Love,’ Queen Bey showed off her bootylicious backside, straddled a chair and twerked for all it was worth. Hubby Jay-Z joined her onstage mid-song, even getting handsy with his wife’s exposed backside.
The display was too risqué for several parents, who took to Twitter to voice their displeasure not only with Bey’s outfit and dance moves, but also the fact that the performance aired in what has historically been considered the “family hour” of 8PM (ET/PT).
Below are tweets from several concerned parents:
Beyonce seriously? It's 8:00. That performance was NOT appropriate for children. Thank God mine are in bed. #shameonyou

Watching the #GRAMMYs at 8pm with my children(music lovers) performance by Beyoncé and her lack of clothing very inappropriate, she's a mom?

Some viewers took notice of a celebrity double standard of sorts, pointing out that Miley Cyrus would have been absolutely lambasted for a similar routine.
I love Beyoncé but why is it okay for her to dress like she did tonight and everyone love her and Miley cyrus get bashed for her choices?

But honestly had Miley got up & did the same thing Beyonce did she would have be called a terrible influence & a lost cause

What do you think, PopCrushers? Did Bey and Jay’s performance cross the line? Do you agree that Miley would have gotten much more grief for the same performance?
