Republican Thinks That Jay-Z Is Pimping Beyoncé? Say what?

Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas, thinks that he has probable cause of claiming that Jay-Z exploits his wife for money and controls her entertaining career.

According to Bossip, here is what he had to say:

“Beyoncé is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing,” Huckabee writes. “She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, 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?”

Huckabee, who accused Republicans last October of giving up in the face of judicial rulings striking down state bans on marriage equality, seems to waver in his opposition to same-sex couples in the book, calling the conservative idea that it would destroy society “greatly overstated.”

“Marriage as an institution is not so much threatened by same-sex couples as it is by heterosexuals’ increasing indifference to it,” he states in one chapter. However, he still expresses support for laws against same-sex marriages, saying “we simply don’t have enough reliable accumulated data” to gauge the impact of repealing them.

At the same time, however, Huckabee — who said two years ago that he was “neither a homophobe nor a hater” — misrepresented bisexuality in his argument against same-sex marriages.  

“Shouldn’t a bisexual be able to have both a male and female spouse?” he wrote. “Wouldn’t restricting that person access to both genders be denying the bisexual his or her marriage ‘equality?’” Huckabee announced last week that he was stepping down from his position at Fox News in order to gauge interest in a potential presidential campaign. A CNN survey of Iowa Republicans taken last September indicated early support for him, as he amassed support from 21 percent of supporters, the most among potential GOP candidates.

I honestly don’t know if I agree with or understand this guy at all though. In my opinion he is just barking up a tree that is only meant for those who are involved in their marriage… Them!

Some people say a lot of things about Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s marriage but why can’t they just have a marriage that works for them? So many people want to criticize and I’m just like… Let people be who they want to be and live how they want to live.
