When you’re the biggest star in the world it takes some getting use to when people just keep questioning and attacking your social issues.
Looks like this time Annie Lennox has some feelings towards Beyoncé and her stance on feminism.
“I would call that ‘feminist lite.’ L-I-T-E. I’m sorry. It’s tokenistic to me. I mean, I think she’s a phenomenal artist—I just love her performances—but I’d like to sit down [with her]. I think I’d like to sit down with quite a few artists and talk to them. I’d like to listen to them. I’d like to hear what they truly think.”
So sitting down with Beyoncé will help her how? Maybe she just wants an autograph or a selfie to take with her as a parting gift. If she gets either one we want ours too.
“I see a lot of it as them taking the word hostage and using it to promote themselves, but I don’t think they necessarily represent wholeheartedly the depths of feminism—no, I don’t.”
Sometimes people fail to realize over time words gain new meaning depending on the generation and the individual. Lennox is entitled to her opinion of course, but it doesn’t mean the Beygency will accept it.
“I think for many it’s very convenient and it looks great and it looks radical, but I have some issues with it. I have issues with it. Of course I do. I think it’s a cheap shot. I think what they do with it is cheap. What can I tell you? Sex always sells. And there’s nothing wrong with sex selling, but it depends on your audience. If they’re 7-year-old kids, I have issues with it.”
Obviously someone didn’t do her Beyoncé homework before speaking. Lennox may the force be with you once the Beygency gets a hold of you.
