Long ago, Beyonce Knowles opened her breakup smash “Irreplaceable” with a chant: “To the left, to the left.” If that’s the political direction she’s hoping to move the Lone Star State with an endorsement of senatorial candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, it’s uncertain that a last-minute bundle of poses is going to achieve her desired effect.
ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos and singer Beyoncé are competitors, according to Ali Wentworth. It’s a rivalry worth crying over. On Monday, comedian and actress Wentworth, who also happens to be the wife of George Stephanopoulos, appeared on The Late Show to promote her new book, Go Ask Ali.
Tuesday night’s telethon Hand In Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief was bursting at the seams with celebrities, moving musical performances, and journalists from ABC, CBS, and NBC, so it was all the more disappointing when Beyoncé and Stevie Wonder promoted climate change as having caused Harvey and Irma.
Beyonce recently posted a photo on her Instagram page of her holding her new twins – a boy named Sir and a girl named Rumi – in a similar veil-and-a-bikini getup to how she posed when she was still pregnant. The Left finds this imagery pregnant with political and religious messages. The Washington Post published an overwrought analysis by Katie Edwards, working for the University of Sheffield’s Institute for Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies in England.
The Post tweet promised a look at “How Beyoncé’s Virgin Mary imagery challenges racist, religious and sexual stereotypes: Her re-appropriation of Virgin Mary iconography offers a biting critique.”
Having handed over its already pretentious arts pages wholly to ethnic and gender-based virtue signaling, the New York Times certainly wasn’t going to let the racially charged Grammys pass without commentary. Jon Caramanica celebrated an onstage rappers' revolt while slamming Adele for beating Beyonce for album of the year, in “Dealing With #GrammysSoWhite," and Joe Coscarelli fanned the Grammy flames on the same page with a conspiracy theory, “Was Beyonce Robbed of Best Album?”
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards was hosted live by James Corden at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday night on CBS. A Tribe called Quest led the predictable, tiresome left-wing takes, while singer Joy Villa went the surprising route at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday night on CBS.
As you sow, so shall you reap, as liberal feminists Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham learned the hard way after being accused of cultural appropriation. Schumer received much backlash over a video of her and friends (including Wanda Sykes) dancing to Beyoncé’s song “Formation.” Despite the “Trainwreck” actress calling the video a “tribute,” social media accused her of cultural appropriation and making light “of the racial politics addressed in Beyoncé’s video,” reported CNN.
Wednesday night’s Country Music Association Awards were so chock full of tributes, special appearances, and medleys to celebrate its 50th anniversary that there wasn’t much time to get political. Last year hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley made a bunch of political references. This year the hosts were over it and sang, “We're so freaking sick of politics we don't care who wins. The election is taking forever and ever forever and ever forever and ever forever and ever.”
NBC’s The Good Place aired the fourth episode of its first season tonight titled, “Jason Mendoza,” demonstrating the exact image most of society has about Heaven: your spot must be earned through good works.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered a vast Hollywood following. Of the top 50 wealthiest celebrities, at least nine have thrown their support behind Clinton, and are using their influence and money to promote her campaign.
The self-righteous hindsight of the left exposes itself again as progressive writer Lawrence Ware suggests, “Put simply, we need a new national anthem…” In an article published by The Root on September 12, Ware urged for the rewriting of the national anthem due to the “vicious legacy of who wrote this song and what it represents.” He referenced a Counterpunch article which argues that Francis Scott Key, the author of the national anthem, was a pro-slavery, black abusing, religious nut. To ask black people to stand for the national anthem, Counterpunch argued, is comparable to asking a Jewish person to stand for a song written by a Nazi.
Question: Why aren't liberal celebrities ever held accountable for stoking their unhinged fans' violent threats and stupidity -- the same way Republican candidates are called on to disavow every last remote and random act of bad behavior of their supporters?
