Let me just begin by saying I'm not a Beyoncé fan. Her music doesn't do it for me, but I'll be damn if I ever refer to this wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, and businesswoman as a whore. Calling her a whore is exactly what a UK rag passing itself off as a newspaper did. They can say they were just quoting what a person said about the entertainer, but that doesn't make it right.

Here is what they said about her Grammy performance:

The diva was dubbed a ‘whore’ by horrified parents who got more than they bargained for when the singer put it all on show at 8pm as she opened the 56th Grammy Awards with her racy track Drunk In Love.

Bey was hit with a barrage of criticism on the web when she took a leaf out of Rihanna’s book by spreading her legs on a chair in a G-string before she came undone during an apparent wardrobe malfunction.

Horrified viewer Mandy Flores wrote on Facebook: ‘Aren’t u a mother now!!? Thought u had class, how trashy and I couldn’t even let my 8 year old watch. U have never done anything like that! So disappointed.’

Others quickly reached for the remote control, with JJ Boogie tweeting: ‘Opening Grammy song performance inappropriate for young children. Thank you Beyonce. #ChannelChange.’

Another horrified woman said the 32-year-old mum looked like a ‘wh*re on stage’ at the Staples Center in LA.

The 17-time Grammy winner certainly wasn’t backward in coming forward when she then took inspiration from raunch bag Miley Cyrus and humped her tush up against her hubby Jay Z after he joined her on stage.

But angry parents were pushed to the edge when the star’s next-to-nothing outfit let her down in an apparent nipple slip of Janet Jackson-style proportions.

‘Beyonce had to open up with the nip slip,’ tweeted Tyler Malone.

I realize a lot of people have something to say about Beyoncé's performance. Personally, I think its similar to most of the routines she's done over the years. This time she got a little more ratchet with it, but honestly there wasn't that much different. She has always been a woman comfortable with her sexuality. We, on the other hand, seemed to be uncomfortable with her comfort and embracing of sex.

I, personally, just want her to make better music that's a little more timeless and less bubblegum. I still think she is one hell of an entertainer and a damn good business woman. You can't knock the woman's hustle.

It is obvious to me that Beyoncé lives her life based on the standards she's set for her life and not the standards people wish to set for her life. If you don't agree with what she does then just turn the channel or don't buy her album.

If your kid looks up to Beyoncé as a role model then that says more about you then it does Beyoncé.
