Beyonce Goes to Bat in New Video: “Role Model” Smashes Set to Smithereens With Skipping Children


Four years ago, the Obamas were crazy fir Beyonce. President Obama said at a fundraiser: “Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent.”

Billy Paul, the great singer of “Me and Mrs. Jones” has died at age 81

The president may be changing his policy on Beyonce now. Her new video from the visual album “Lemonade” shows the Queen of Pop gleefully smashing dozens of cars and other objects to smithereens with a baseball bat. She has a better average right now than A-Rod!

The song and video, called “Hold Up,” seems to be about Beyonce getting revenge on husband Jay Z for cheating on her. Indeed, all of “Lemonade” appears to be Beyonce saying she’s made lemonade from lemons– meaning she’s somehow stuck it out in a bad marriage despite lying and infidelity. That sounds more like the Clintons’ story than the Obamas’.

What’s very interesting is that Jay Z doesn’t show up on the “Lemonade” songs as he did on Beyonce’s last album. And the only reason she may have given his Tidal service an exclusive is that as his wife, she’s also his business partner.

The lyrics: “I’d rather be crazy” than being “walked all over lately.” She asks: “Are you cheating on me?”
“Back up hold up/They don’t love you like I love you.” Jeez Louise. “I’m gonna f– me up a bitch.” Beyonce sings that she’s been going through his “call list.”

Anywho: Beyonce looks nuts in this video. Role model? Only if she’s in one of those Monster truck rallies.

PS A keen eyed Twitter follower reminds that Carrie Underwood already went batty over cheating:
