Skip to comments.Was Beyoncé's Racy Super Bowl Outfit Too Much? Parents' Backlash Over 'Trampy' Stage Costume

Beyoncé's daring leather ensemble at the Super Bowl last night has sparked anger from some parents who believe it was too racy for prime time television. Several viewers took to Facebook and other social networking websites to suggest that the performer's costume, by fashion designer Rubin Singer, looked a little too 'S&M'. Beyoncé was 'over the top trampy,' according to one mother commenting on the Today show's Facebook page. 'I was embarrassed to watch it with my 9 year old son,' she wrote.
Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham tweeted sarcastically: 'Very family-friendly dancing S&M by Beyonce. What every girl shd aspire to. #waronwomen [sic].'
And an angered Huffington Post reader wrote: 'This is a family event - did the woman need to dress like a harlot???'
'This is a family event - did the woman need to dress like a harlot?' However overall reception of her costume was positive, with viewers and fans praising it as fierce and sexy, a testament to her girl power attitude. And many were shocked to discover that the brains behind the pop star's jaw-dropping leather getup did not belong to a big-name label, but to the relatively new and unknown New York-based designer, Rubin Singer. 'I have to tell you, this is a moment,' Mr Singer, 34, told The New York Times. 'It's the biggest moment of my career.'
The designer's creation included a black plunging leather bodysuit fashioned with strips of engineered python, paneled iguana, silk, plastic and leather, with insets of black lace. The ensemble also featured a motorcycle jacket with padded shoulders and a leather flounce skirt which Beyoncé ripped off early in the show, revealing a ruffled Chantilly lace skirt.

She is what she is.....Didn’t she just do a bit on trailer trash??
Well she is a tramp.
Watch Brooklyn’s West Indian Day Parade on Labor Day and you’ll find 10 year olds with skimpier costumes
Ah, For the sweet innoncent days of Janet and Justin.
The parents don’t care really, they should snoop around their kids’ belongings to see what they’re watching and listening to.
Just about every year people complain about a Superbowl ad, or half time, as scuzzy and not suitable for family viewing.
And just about every year more and more people seem to tune in. Drudge says this was the most watched Superbowl ever. As long as that holds true, they’ll probably keep doing what comes naturally to these scuzzy Hollywood types.
I’m sure Sen. Menendez thought it was just fine.
Well, she is a tramp. What did they expect? Why does this shock anyone?
I’m not a football fan so I didn’t watch. I do look for the ads afterward but that’s about it.
One of my party guests said, while Beyonce was gyrating, “All right already! We know you have a crotch!”
...and a pretty faceWe've come a long way...
and a pony tail hanging down
That wiggle in the walk and giggle in the talk
Makes the world go round.
Doesn’t this happen every year? Just turn it off.
The halftime Superbowl shows are a reflection of American society. I tuned out the Superbowl years ago, but can’t do that with the rest of society.
Made all the fuses and/or circuit breakers blow, didn’t it?
The mistake was turning everything back on.
Underwear Sex Dancer. There are a lot of these. Pretty face. No talent. Pitch correct voice. All that is required is good looks and a willingness to show it all. The fall of rome via sattelite.
She is representative of American society and American women, - the US and the rest of the world.
There’s no getting around that.
“...strips of engineered python, paneled iguana...”
Sounds like the leftover stuff you fish out of a dumpster behind an ethnic restaurant in NYC.
