Mike Huckabee blasted the President and First Lady on Tuesday for allowing their teen daughters to be crazy in love with Beyonce - and in his new book accused the singer's husband Jay Z of "crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object."
The Arkansas Republican, who's rumored to be eyeing a presidential run, slammed the first family's fondness for the Grammy-award winning goddess, claiming the singer "has sort of a regular key to the door,” in comments Tuesday to People magazine. Huckabee said he's baffled that Michelle Obama’s fierce protection of Malia, 16, and Sasha, 13, doesn’t extend to their musical choices.“I don't understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything — how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school and making sure they're kind of sheltered and shielded from so many things — and yet they don't see anything that might not be suitable for either a preteen or a teen in some of the lyrical content and choreography of Beyonce,” Huckabee told People magazine.
Huckabee, 59, spoke to the celebrity magazine to promote his new book “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.”In his book, he criticizes Beyonce and Jay Z for their steamy duet “Drunk in Love” and suggests the rap mogul, 45, is exploiting his 33-year-old wife.Beyoncé is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact," Huckabee writes.“She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?"
