Annie Lennox Condemns Beyonce, Says Real Feminists Don’t Twerk

share on:

Annie Lennox has criticized Beyonce again over her erotic performances on stage.

The legendary Scottish singer and activist had earlier in the year said Beyonce was “not a feminist but feminist lite.”

And in a recent interview, the singer explained further what she meant.

‘Listen, twerking is not feminism,’ said the 59-year-old artist.

‘It’s not – it’s not liberating, it’s not empowering. It’s a sexual thing that you’re doing on a stage; it doesn’t empower you. That’s my feeling about it.’

‘The reason why I’ve commented is because I think that this overt sexuality thrust — literally — at particular audiences, when very often performers have a very, very young audience, like 7 years older, I find it disturbing and I think its exploitative. It’s troubling. I’m coming from a perspective of a woman that’s had children,’ she explained.
