    I don't know but what he probably doesn't realize is compared to the rest of pop music culture, Beyonce is the relatively wholesome role model. One of her hit songs encourages young people to stop sleeping around and get married (the same song Kenye West made an idiot out of himself when he said Beyonce's video was the greatest of all time and Tayor Swift should not have won.) Another song she produced while with her initial girl band, Destiny's Child was about overcoming hurt, honoring one's parents and forgiveness. She's had a grand total one one boyfriend in her life with whom she is now married. In a CNN interview confessed she has never once experimented with recreational drugs of any kind.

    I agree with Gov. Huckabee in that I think her on stage wardrobe is a little too revealing/sexy/whatever. I asked a female friend and mother I know how she felt about Beyone's dress and that this really temps men because of the way we're wired. I suggested she must be oblivious to how her wardrobe affects guys. My friend's (a church going Christian mom) response was she didn't really see anything wrong with it and men are going to gawk and lust regardless.

    It should be noted, Beyonce's husband is in fact one of Hip Hop's bad boys; not the worst out there but uses foul language on his songs and admits to a regrettable time in his life when he once sold drugs. Why good girls are attracted to bad boys is another topic and Beyonce is certainly not the first. A year or 2 ago, Beyonce changed managers, parting ways with her father's management company and hiring her husband's management company. Since then, her music, especially live performances, have gotten somewhat more risque.

    Beyonce's audience is made up mostly of ladies. This all said, Huckabee can probably kiss the youth and female vote goodbye; not that he ever had it.

    What difference does it make what a politician thinks about music?

    Caring what some semi-whacko politician thinks about music is like caring what Peyton Manning (NFL QB) thinks about pepper...it is TOTALLY IRRELEVANT.

    Jeez people, you need to find new role models.

    95% of politicians are corrupt liars that are probably emotionally disturbed to some extent (just listen to them speak off the cuff on anything for five minutes...they are semi-nuts and/or monumentally stupid)...NOTHING they say should be believed/listened to/accepted/respected until they provide unbiased facts to back up their claims?

    EVERYTHING ANY politician says should be taken as a lie or the rambling's of a whacko until they prove otherwise.

    I think Huckabee is just jealous that he doesn't have the talent to play the bass lines in her songs. LOL!

    I really knew very little about the woman but after a little Googling it seems that her lyrics can get pretty damn raunchy and she certainly dresses like a slut.

    So I guess if you felt strongly that those were bad things Beyonce isn't exactly what you'd call a role model.

    Personally I don't really feel all that strongly about her one way or the other.

    She's just another attention whore celebrity in in my opinion, one among a great many. Probably more trashy than some and less trashy than a great many.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Do you struggle with English? What does "every one occasionally lies" mean? Does it mean I am denying he has told lies? Is this really that hard?

    Her music is **** along with 90% of what comes out these days.


    Rural people are just mad that their populations are dwindling so they blame urban music.

    If Beyonce is "mental porn "then I guess a bunch of artists from Rock, Country, Rap, R&B, Folk, Blues, also make music that is "mental porn". Also what the **** is "mental porn"? Thinking naughty thoughts?

    Her music is unquestionably, unequivocally, mental poison.
