According to Bill O’Reilly, the latest treat to society’s children is a too-sexy women named Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.
The conservative TV pundit hosted Russell Simmons on “The O’Reilly Factor” this week to promote his new book Success Through Stillness. But, instead of discussing the hip-hop mogul’s self-help meditation title, the Fox News host directed the conversation toward Beyonce and her new in-your-face, unapologetic sexuality.
O’Reilly said he’s not a fan of Bey’s sexy jam “Partition” because the 32-year-old wife and mother has an “obligation to protect children.”
“She puts out a new album with a video that glorifies having sex in the back of a limousine. Teenage girls look up to Beyoncé, particularly girls of color,” he said. “Why on Earth would this woman do that?”
He added, “Why would she do it when she knows the devastation that unwanted pregnancies…and fractured families—why would Beyoncé do that?”
In response, Simmons defended the superstar, saying he has no problem with his 14 and 11-year-old daughter’s listing to “the most commercial radio station” on their ride to school. “They’ve heard most of that language,” he said of Beyonce’s music. “My daughters make choices based on the inspiration that we give them as parents.”

“Bill, if you think that the art that comes out of a community –“ Simmons said before O’Reilly cut him off.
“That’s art,” he questioned. “Beyoncé in the back of a limo having sex and referencing Monica Lewinsky, is art?”
“Yeah, it is actually,” Simmons replied. “She’s a brilliant artist. And she’s not only [appreciated] by people of color, as you know, she’s really one of the top artists in the world [to] people of every color.”
“Yeah, she is, and I can’t understand why the woman did it,” O’Reilly concluded. Check out the full conversation for yourself below and tell us your thoughts.
