Lily Tomlin Accuses Beyonce of “Selling Sex to Teeny-Boppers”

by at . Comments

Lily Tomlin is on Team Bill O'Reilly.

The Fox News host has slammed Beyonce on multiple occasions for being a bad role model, arguing that the artist is part of the teenage pregnancy problem because she sensationalizes sex in too much of her music.

And Tomlin agrees.

The 74-year-old actress was recently asked by Pride Source what she thought of Beyonce as a "modern-day feminist,” responding that she does like the singer... but has an issue with Beyonce “selling a lot of sex to teeny-boppers."

"She is a pretty popular woman and she's married to a very powerful man," Tomlin said. "But she's still selling sex."

In one of his diatribes against Jay Z's better half, O'Reilly said that Beyonce “doesn't seem to care” that about 70 percent of pregnant young girls in the African-American community are unmarried.

He added that the idea of Beyonce "empowering" these impressionable youths through her songs and lewd music videos is "nonsense."

Tomlin didn't get into such detail, admitting she isn't even "terribly conversant" and adding:

"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" - and that could be problematic.

What do you think? Does Beyonce set a poor example?
