Rush Limbaugh Slams Beyonce, "Bow Down" Message

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Keyshia Cole has some unexpected, anti-Beyonce company. Rush Limbaugh is going off on the star and her controversial single "Bow Down / I Been On."

The conservative talk-radio host ripped Jay-Z's wife for what he deemed a "180" in the image department and abandoning her feminist credibility.

"[Destiny's Child] songs were attempts to inspire young women not to take any grief from men. She's done a 180," said Limbaugh of the music superstar.

"Beyonce, now having been married, having been impregnated and giving birth to Blue Ivy," Rush added. "She's got a new song, 'Bow, Down Bitches.'"

"Beyonce is now saying, 'Go ahead and put up with it!'"

"You know why? I'll tell you why. Because she married a rich guy. She's even calling herself Mrs. Carter on the tour… She has shelved Beyonce."

"She now understands it's worth it to bow down."

Limbaugh also cited an editorial in U.K.'s The Telegraph by a woman angered by B's allegedly new direction away from the "Independent Women" champion.

Rush, of course, may not have listened to the song that closely and may be taking her lyrics partially (if not entirely) out of context ... big shocker.

A more likely interpretation of "Bow Down"' is it's a tough message aimed at any upstart singers hoping to challenge her place on the pop throne.

In fact, when the singer does mention Jay-Z, she does so in the following way: "I took some time to live my life, but don't think I'm just his little wife."

Moreover, naming her tour The Mrs. Carter Show was more a playful nod to her role as Hov's other half than a real command for women to be subservient.

Rush isn't the only one to react in such fashion, however. R&B star Keyshia Cole, as we previously reported, also slammed the new track from Knowles.

"First 'Women need to Stick together' now bitches better Bow. Smh. But it's all G! Chicks stay shooting the s--t. But when I speak my mind it's a prob," she wrote.

What do you think? Do you agree with Rush and Keyshia? Or is Beyonce being misinterpreted by people who just want to knock her down a peg?

Sounds like neither you or Rush know what the song is about. It's def not about demeaning women. Think you guys should take another listen and try again. Or stop twisting the truth

you people are crazy! Bey is trying to say that you better not ever challenge her spot as the baddest chick in the game..hence "this my ish, bow down bitches." she would never tell someone to bow down to a man. why can't this woman just live her life, be about her business and love/respect/pay homage to her marriage at the same time! you haters need to get a life! the Beyhive loves you boo!

She is saying bow down to BAPHOMET- she even tells you that using the the capital 'B'. She is so very foolish - having sold her soul to the industry - she is building her riches here on earth giving allegiance to Satan- I prefer wisdom in building my riches in heaven.
