Was Beyoncé's Racy Super Bowl Outfit Too Much? Parents' Backlash Over 'Trampy' Stage Costume
London Daily Mail ^ | 16:53 EST, 4 February 2013

Posted on 02/04/2013 4:14:24 PM PST by drewh

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.

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.

...a leather flounce skirt which Beyoncé ripped off early in the show, revealing a ruffled Chantilly lace skirt...

...and a pretty face
and a pony tail hanging down
That wiggle in the walk and giggle in the talk
Makes the world go round.

We've come a long way...

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.

She was in a head-to-toe body stocking, so people need to lighten up.

Having said that, what she did and does is Not "music".

I would much rather have seen Bonnie Raitt or a thousand other acts.

She is such a mediocre singer....thus the reason she dresses like a whore and gyrates her private parts to make up the difference. She is incredibly overrated.

I don’t watch TV at all, except for an occasional movie on DVD. With a few exceptions, such as the 9/11 reports, I haven’t watched it for about 20 years, I think.

Back in Connecticut about 20 years ago we used to go to a neighbor’s for the annual superbowl party. I didn’t care that much about the game, but we went for the food and company.

Anyway, they certainly won’t clean up TV or make it more intelligent unless they think the ratings point that way. Maybe not even then.

I haven’t bothered to watch a Super Bowl half-time show since U2. There’s really nothing to see (or that I want to).

Actually, I think she is a pretty good singer....when she just sings. She doesn’t need all the flash and trash. She can actually sing.

Didn’t care for the half-time show at all. Only watched a few minutes then enjoyed talking to friends about Phil’s win at the Phoenix!

It’s not just the coverage, it’s the style. We’re talking black leather and lace here. The calibrations between wholesomely flirty and slutty can get pretty fine, but I think the S&M vibe pushes this into the slutty category.

“Racy”? “Trampy”? I just thought it was stupid. I thought it was a stupid-looking outfit that made her look stupid. I’ve heard she’s actually a nice girl.

This woman is a VERY mediocre singer and so overuses a flashy backup show and the same gyrations over and over again masquarading as dancing in hopes that people won’t notice how average her voice is. Her voice is just not particularly special.

Whitney Houston could actually sing and had amazing talent!

We didn’t watch it. This is the current culture of most of our society. It’s sad. Too many are fascinated by those who not only have no talent, but who use the basest of instincts to make money. The NFL should be ashamed.

Beyonce is a tramp.

Sorry, but these parents should take some initiative and TURN THE SUPERBOWL OFF when these things start. If you want them to stop putting garbage on T.V., just switch it off when they perform. These people live on ratings. T.V. has definitely become a corrupting influence in America, not that I’m against free speech, but its crap like this that has spearheaded the sexualization of young kids. It should be pointed out.

Beyond Passe’ ...is a no talent hack. I don’t trust her voice since the advent of Auto Tune pitch correcting software. I don’t trust any of it since Auto-Tune became operative in 1997. It can make your 90 year old grandmother sound like a 20 year old opera diva.

Add to Beyond Passe’ any one of the tramps and whores that we have seen since 1997 to the list of zero talent wenches to disgrace themselves. Look at Ms. Spears. There’s not a speck of talent in the woman, and yet every stripper thought she was/could be her.
