Mike Huckabee Thinks Jay Z Is Pimping Out Beyonce


Huckabee has a crush!

Why should I talk about Mike Huckabee on a music blog? Well because he is talking about music people in high places, and this is so ridiculous that I can’t be quiet. I don’t know if the guy wants to run for president again — and I hope he does as he is such an easy target — but his interview with People magazine makes me want to defend an indefensible couple: Beyonce and Jay-Z! Talking about his new book ‘God, Guns, Grits and Gravy’, which in itself already sums up a lot, the former Arkansas governor ended up criticizing the way the Obamas educate their daughters, after nevertheless recognizing they were ‘excellent and exemplary parents in many ways’:

‘That’s the whole point’, he added. ‘I don’t understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything – how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school and making sure they’re kind of sheltered and shielded from so many things – and yet they don’t see anything that might not be suitable for either a preteen or a teen in some of the lyrical content and choreography of Beyoncé, who has sort of a regular key to the door” of the White House.’

What does he imply with this last line? It is so low! I am certainly not going to read his greasy-gritty-gravy book but according to The Daily Beast, he is describing Beyonce’s lyrics as ‘obnoxious and toxic mental poison’ and even wondering whether Jay Z is pimping out his wife:

‘Beyoncé is incredibly talented — gifted, in fact, ‘Huckabee writes. ‘She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?’

As I said before, I can’t believe I am defending these two, but Huckabee is way higher than anybody else in my bullshit radar. You are gonna say, what’s new? You know the type, a puritan conservative old guy, stuck at home with homy Janet with his obese sons, but drooling (and beyond) on Beyonce’s legs. What a joke! Huckabee doesn’t sound different from these fundamentalist Islamists that made the news last week, and he is just using the power couple to get a bit of publicity for his upcoming campaign, and he succeeded.
