Piers Morgan Prefers The Old Beyoncé Over The ‘Agitating Militant Activist We See Now’
Beyoncé is constantly evolving…as an artist, a woman, and human being. It’s the thing I love most about her and the very thing that makes others extremely uncomfortable.
Bey rang the alarm when she dropped “Formation” and reminded the world she’s black and proud during her Super Bowl performance. It was beautiful and bold – leaving others uncomfy and some downright mad.
Piers Morgan, who says he loves Beyoncé, called out the singer for “adding a far more serious, deeply political and race-fueled tone to her work.”
He referenced a 2011 interview with superstar, where she expressed her desire to be known for her talent rather than the color of her skin.
I don’t think people think about my race. I think they look at me as an entertainer and a musician and I’m very happy about that because that’s how I look at people. It’s not about color and race, and I’m happy that’s changing.
Now, he wants to know when did she become so black and proud?
Beyoncé then was unrecognisable from the militant activist we see now. Then, she was at pains to be seen as an entertainer and musician and not as a black woman who sings.
Now, it seems to be the complete opposite.
Piers Morgan went on to share how he prefers the “old Beyoncé” over the agitating proud black woman Bey.
The new Beyoncé wants to be seen as a black woman political activist first and foremost, entertainer and musician second.
I still think she’s a wonderful singer and performer, and some of the music on Lemonade is fantastic.
But I have to be honest, I preferred the old Beyoncé.
The less inflammatory, agitating one.
The one who didn’t use grieving mothers to shift records and further fill her already massively enriched purse.
The one who didn’t play the race card so deliberately and to my mind, unnecessarily.
The one who wanted to be judged on her stupendous talent not her skin color, and wanted us all to do the same.
Basically…”we liked you better when you only used your voice for love songs and party records.”
