Rush Limbaugh went off on Beyonce today on his show. He’s not impressed with her latest tour.
“She used to be a role model for young women… Now she’s calling herself Mrs. Carter on her “Bow Down, Bitches” tour. She’s passing on this advice. You find the right guy you put up with it. You bow down.”
Rush posted the transcript:
By the way, there are a lot of people dissing Beyonce. Have you heard about Beyonce? Have you heard what Beyonce did? Let me give you a little history on Beyonce.
Beyonce used to be the lead for a three-girl group called Destiny’s Child, and their songs were attempts to inspire young women not to take any grief from men. Right, Mr. Snerdley? Essentially don’t take any grief. Don’t let these guys walk over you. Don’t do this; don’t do that. Walk away! You don’t need to put up with that. She’s done take 180. Beyonce, now having been married, having been impregnated and giving birth to Blue Ivy, is going out on a new tour and they may as well call it “the Bow Down, B-i-itch Tour.”
She’s got a new song. Can I say it? It’s on the popular charts. “Bow Down, Bitches” is the new tune. A total 180. Beyonce’s now saying, “Go ahead and put up with it,” and you know why? I’ll tell you why. Because she got married. She’s married to rich guy. She’s even calling herself “Mrs. Carter” on the tour. She has shelved “Beyonce.” She’s no longer being called that. She’s gonna call herself “Mrs. Carter” on the Bow Down, Bitches Tour. That’s the title of the single that’s fronting the tour.
When you find the right guy, you put up with it, bow down, and the story in the UK Telegraph is written by an angry woman who feels betrayed by Beyonce. This woman is not gonna bow down. The woman who wrote this piece is not gonna do it. I have it here. I have so many stacks of stuff that if I get everything in this program, this is gonna be one for the ages. I’ve got 15 stacks here. I don’t know where I put it. Right here.
Ah! Ah! Here it is. It’s by Felicity Capon: “Beyonce’s new single, Bow Down, marks a change in direction for the independent woman the US president handpicks to play at his parties. Felicity Capon explains why the lyrics leave a bitter taste.” It’s a huge story. So I’m telling you: The thing that’s gonna shake this country up is gonna be Obama on an open mike dissing Timberlake’s latest CD or his latest fashion line, or maybe saying something negative about Beyonce. You watch. Don’t doubt me.
