Bell Hooks,” “Bill O Reill” and “Beyonce: Sex Terrorist” speak about how Beyonce was no longer treated as a role model because of what she does and post. The problem is that when it comes to celebrities, people still seem to get the most attention. She was judged for her appearance on account of what she had written. Hooks said, “I see a part of Beyonce that’s actually anti-feminist, that’s attacking—a that’s terrorist. Especially in terms of the effect on young girls.” This is how OReilly thinks, “Why would this woman do that on earth? Why would she do it because she knows that devastation that unexpected pregnancies that we’re going to deal with in a moment, not with you, but in another chapter, and broken families, why would Beyonce do that?

For the Media Share regarding Kelefa Sanneh’s “Gettin’ Paid”, I made this image:

Based on the reading, something that I took away was that with the emergence of primarily white audiences consuming hip-hop, rappers have started to deviate from the nitty-gritty lyricism of the 90’s and have opted to shell out music that instead caters to a variety of audiences, in the place of music that has primarily been targeted at African-American audiences or audiences that can relate to the lyrics that contain topics that range from poverty, to gang violence, and to the daily struggles of everyday living that was unique to the MCs of yesterday. This emergence of “corporate rap” opens up a lot of arguments that are both for and against the new direction of rap, but in my Media Share I wanted to illustrate how “modern” or “corporate” rap could be interpreted: In the wake of a new audience, rappers have started a new culture in rap that caters to the new audience in the interest of relevance, prominence and clout instead of focusing on bringing attention to the harsh realities and the truths that the ancestors of rap have intended.

“Bill OReilly”, “Bell Hooks”, and “Beyonce: Sex Terrorist” discuss how Beyonce isn’t considered a “role model” anymore because of how she acted. I believe that her fans were just looking for a way to get Beyonce’s attention. Hooks stated “I see a part of Beyonce that is in fact anti-feminist, that is assaulting – that is a terrorist. Especially in terms of the impact on young girls”. This is how OReilly feels… “why on earth would this woman do that? why would she do it when she knows that devastation that unwanted pregnancies, which we will deal with in a moment, not with you, but in another segment, and  fractured  families, why would Beyonce do that”?

I chose to use these pictures for my media share because it illustrates Beyonce’s fans admiring her at her concert. The second picture illustrates how her fans feel after what she did and how they were pointing fingers at her, calling out her actions.

In the text “Beyoncé, Sec Terrorist: A Menace for Conservatives and Liberals Alike “ by Noah Berlatsky , the author talks about Beyoncé that she is not a good model for young girls or teenagers  and she portrays bad image to them. It is her life. She can do whatever she wants. Sometimes it look bad to other people but if she is comfortable with that then who are they to judge her? We can’t force someone to stop or not to do it. People are too busy to judging her but they forget what she did for women and how much power she gave to them. No matter what but people always judge her when she do something. I choose this photo because it reminds me of Beyoncé and the people who are pointing out at her .

“Bell Hooks”, “Bill O Reill”, and “Beyonce: Sex Terrorist” talks about how Beyonce wasn’t seen as a role model anymore because of what she does and post. The problem is when it comes to celebrities is that people always seem to get dramatic to get attention.  She was judged for her looks because of what she posted. Their excuse for judging her was “teenage girls look up to Beyoncé, particularly girls of color.” Everyone has their own problem and it’s Beyonce’s life, she can do whatever she wants. The picture that I chose reminded of Beyonce and the girls that look up to her.

I chose this article because this article talks about how hip hop has shaped music and culture worldwide for decades.  Hip-hop is such a well-known genre and people even look up to it. In “Gettin’ Paid: Jay-Z, Criminal Culture, and the Rise of Corporate Rap” it states “Over the past ten years, though, “corporate rock” has been upstaged by “corporate rap,” which has emerged as the country’s new music.” Back in the days, people would hate rap music but now it’s a famous genre that people listen to all around the world, people enjoy it because of famous rappers like Jay Z and Kendric Lamar.

In the text “Beyoncé, Sex Terrorist: A Menace for Conservatives and Liberals Alike” by Noah Berlatsky, the author discusses Beyonce and how she isn’t a feminist because of her music video titled “partition.” He says that she isn’t a good role model for young girls and that she’s a anti-feminist. I chose this photo because I think it represents what women consistently go through in society. Women are constantly being ripped apart and judged about everything they do, especially celebrities. Beyonce has always been a role model for young girls and women and once she does something “controversial” she gets judged by men for being too sexually or anti feminist. They ignore all the things she’s done for women and how much confidence she gives these young girls, especially young African American girls. Beyonce will always be judged regardless of what she does, whether she does something good or bad people are always going to point out something.

In the text “Beyoncé, Sex Terrorist: A Menace for Conservatives and Liberals Alike” by Noah Berlatsky, the author makes a response to O’Reilly’s claim about how he believes Beyonce portrays a bad image to teenagers and the society today than what she used when she was younger. For example O’Reilly states that “Teenage girls look up to Beyoncé, particularly girls of
color. Why would she do it when she knows the devastation that unwanted pregnancies. … Why would Beyoncé do that?”it also states “I see a part of Beyoncé that is, in fact, anti-feminist—that is, a terrorist—especially in terms of the impact on young girls,”. I personally disagree with this statement, yes I do agree that a lot of people especially teenagers look up to Beyonce as a role model, but I don’t believe that her actions is intentional or would influence peoples actions. Over time the different trends pop up and as a celebrity Beyonce has to keep up and make the trend her own. Many singers and rappers do the same thing in our society today such as Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, City girls, and many more in which they are not getting banished or called “anti feminist” because of the way they dress or the image they portray, these rappers all wear revealing clothes and also have teenage girls who look up to them.  I feel like if parents have a problem with the way Beyonce dresses or portrays her-self it’s their responsibility to not let their kids dress the same way. I also feel like in our generation today this is typically what singers and rappers wear, which relates to my point about new trends. Yes Beyonce never dressed like that before but people need to understand that this is not the 90s or early 2000s, trends changes over time. I feel like Beyonce and these other celebrities are just embracing their bodies which does not seem anti feminist at all. If people are going to talk about the way female rappers dress they should also talk about how male rapper constantly call women “thots”, and “hoes” in their song constantly in this generation, which seems very anti feminist to me.
