raunchy performance on Sunday at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Beyoncé wore a revealing black thong bodysuit over fishnet tights to perform a rendition of her hit Drunk In Love alongside husband Jay Z who couldn't help but get touchy feely with his wife, clasping his hands on her famous derriere and giving her a sultry kiss mid-song.
The 32-year-old singer opened the show straddling a chair then proceeded to writhe around on it before twerking her way up to a standing position.
From start to end, the mother-of-one's routine could only be described as both seductive and risqué.
However the countless viewers appeared to be less impressed ― claimed the performance was 'disrespectful', had 'no class' and was entirely inappropriate for young children.
The latest slam is from New York journalist, Naomi Schaefer Riley calling Jay Z as 'a poor excuse for a husband'. Read it after the cut
Photos from the opening performance at the Grammy Awards Sunday nightWhat do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?I’m certain if I look through enough Jay Z song titles, I’ll come up with the right name for his role in Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. Rhymes with Goodyear? Well, how about I just call him a poor excuse for a husband.For years, these award ceremonies have pushed the envelope; Beyoncé’s booty-shaking was certainly no worse than Miley Cyrus’s twerking or any number of other performances by Madonna, for instance. But there’s something particularly icky about doing it while your husband looks on approvingly.Honestly, I didn't want to watch Jay Z and Beyoncé’s foreplay, Indeed, the happy couple seems to have completely blurred the line between what goes on in their bedroom and what happens on national TV. So much for the woman that Michelle Obama has called “a role model who kids everywhere can look up to....Said Charlotte Hays, author of “When Did White Trash Become the New Normal?”It wasn't surprising to see Jay Z, looking pleased at his wife’s hyper-sexualized exhibition on stage.” After all, he’s made a living singing lyrics that call women ‘b*tches’ and ‘h*s,’ so we shouldn't be surprised that he objectified his own wife on stage...she added!.The sophisticates will say that what we saw Sunday were just the long-established stage personas of Beyoncé and Jay Z; why should their marriage change that?
