Let’s just say we aren’t surprised!
In the past Beyonce has sparked controversy on the subject of black feminism and feminism in general. On her latest album Beyonce, she even has a skit in the middle of her song Flawless, that speaks out on the subject of feminism. You can hear her talk more about that in her documentary here. So what does that have to do with getting a class?
Well we aren’t sure if you know or not but Beyonce as well as Jay- were heavily scrutinized for their Drunk In Love performance that took place at the Grammy’s. A writer at the NY Post even pegged Jay-Z as a poor excuse for a husband because of it.
What do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?
I’m certain if I look through enough Jay Z song titles, I’ll come up with the right name for his role in Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. Rhymes with Goodyear. . . ? Well, how about I just call him a poor excuse for a husband
After all, “he’s made a living singing lyrics that call women ‘bitches’ and ‘hos,’ so we shouldn’t be surprised that he objectified his own wife on stage.
Because of that people are now wondering if Bey is a true feminist or if she’s as big as an artist as she is because of the amount of sex appeal she displays.
The class is being offered by the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and wil take a look into Beyonce’s videos, and lyrics with readings from black feminists. The students will take a deep look into how the media consumes the American race, gender and sexual politics. The name of the course will be titled, Politicizing Beyonce.
Hov also has a course that is currently being offered at Georgetown University called The Sociology of Hip Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z.
Power couple for real.
Would you take the curse?
