Lily Tomlin Lashes Out at Beyonce for Selling Sex to Teenagers

June 12, 2014 Lily Tomlin, Queen, Beyonce

Actress Lily Tomlin doesn’t think Beyonce has done a great job with her suggestive songs.

The 74-year-old actress was recently asked by Pride Source what she thought of Beyoncéas a "modern-day feminist." But instead of directing the expected unmitigated praise at Hova's wife, she accused Queen Bey of "selling a lot of sex to teeny-boppers."

Say what now!? "She is a pretty popular woman and she's married to a very powerful man," Lily tried to explain, "but she's still selling sex."

When Pride Source reminded her that her remarks about Bey could cause a stir among her fans, she appeared to mellow down saying, "Oh, s--t," she said. "I like her! I don't dislike her! But I don't pay any attention to that because—I mean, she's fantastically beautiful and dances, but, you know, it's very suggestive. If I was a 10-year-old, I would try to emulate her like most 10-year-olds do."

But Lily, who takes issue with our culture being "so sexualized with girls and women," doesn't really have a specific beef with Bey. She admitted, too, she "shouldn't even talk about Beyonce because...I'm not terribly conversant with Beyonce."

"If you played her songs, I wouldn't necessarily recognize them," she said. "I'm familiar with her image and how incredibly vivacious and sexual she is to watch, so I just chalk it up to the culture."
