Churches Are Boycotting Beyonce Over "Lemonade" Lyrics
Unfortunately, they're like four months late to the party.
Beyonce seems like a nice god-loving lady who makes wholesome music for the children, but some churches are pretty angry at her more edgy lyrics from Lemonade. Conservatives love boycotting Beyonce, and this tradition continues as a few houses of God in Atlanta have decided to encourage boycotts against Queen Bey over some of the spoken word verses in her most recent visual album.
"I plugged my menses with pages of the holy book and still coiled deep inside me was the need to know — are you cheating on me?" asks a hopeless Mrs. Carter in the sprawling and gorgeous art film. This particular line is taken from expatriate Somali poet Warsan Shire, who Beyonce quoted in between songs on the visual release.
According to MediaTakeOut, a handful of mega-churches down south have decided the use of this particular religious imagery is blasphemy and are planning to announce demonstrations against Beyonce in the near future.
Hey, uh, church people? You guys know this album came out, like, a few months ago right? You're a little late to the party. Besides, anti-Beyonce protests don't exactly have a history of going so well. In fact, you'll probably just end up contributing to her t-shirt sales.
