Yikes. Mike Huckabee, who ran for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination and who many believe will run again in 2016, has harshly dissed Jay Z as a ‘pimp’ and believes he exploits Beyonce as a ‘sex object’.
Mike Huckabee’s new novel God, Guns, Grits and Gravy is scathing, to say the least. The 2016 GOP nomination hopeful takes aim at Hollywood royalty Jay Z and Beyonce in his book. He calls the rapper and businessman a “pimp” who sexually exploits Beyonce. While Mike compliments Beyonce’s musical talent, he believes she should put an end to her “explicit” dance moves.
Mike Huckabee Disses Jay Z & Beyonce
Fans of Jay Z and Beyonce are not going to be happy with Mike. The former host of the Fox News show Huckabee proved he had major guts in his new book.
“Jay Z is a very shrewd businessman,” Huckabee writes in God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, according to Daily Mail. “But I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?”
“Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact,” Mike also writes. “She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom.”
Ouch. Take a hike, Mike.
He specifically called out the pair’s 2014 Grammy performance of “Drunk in Love.”
“The song contains words and imagery so graphic that they would never make it through the editing process of this book. (Not that I would want them to!) But the onstage gyrations, bare flesh, and (most of) the lyrics did make it onto CBS, again during the smoldering remnants of what used to be the ‘family hour,'” he wrote.
Mike’s book was released on Jan. 20. The politician just ended his long-running Fox News show in order to pursue a presidential campaign in 2016.
