Actress Garcelle Beauvais went in on Beyonce, saying she can be sexy without “everything showing out grinding.” Amen! In a recent interview published by Hello Beautiful, Beauvais, who starred in “The Jamie Foxx Show,” gave her two cents on what it’s like to be a sex symbol in Hollywood.
Garcelle Beauvais said, “For me, you’re obviously flattered when someone calls you sexy or thinks you’re sexy.” “I think that’s great. But, for me now, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it. I think you can wear a great short dress, but if you have long sleeves and you’re only showing leg.”
Beauvais said she wants to remain sexy as she gets older, but will do it in a classy manner. Take note ‘divas!’
“I love Beyonce. I love her,” Beauvais said. “I think she’s beautiful and talented. But I think there has to be a fine line where you have to take responsibility for what you do. I think it’s good to be sexy, but sexy can come across in so many different ways. It doesn’t have to be everything showing out grinding, all of the time.”
You will recall the x-rated performance Beyonce gave at the Grammy Awards while performing “Drunk In Love” with husband Jay Z. This is along the same lines as Patti LaBelle smackdown of ‘today’s divas’ as little heifers who can’t sing.
But….. Yeah, there’s a HUGE but….
Should someone who posed for Playboy Magazine in 2007 be critical of Beyonce? Or anyone else, for that matter?
Well, Garcelle Beauvais kinda walked back the comment and now says she was taken out of context.Yeah, she wussed out. You be the judge…..
I love Beyonce! What I said was taken out of context, and of course I support women being sexy!
