I just watched the half time show of Super Bowl 2013. The center of the show was Beyonce. Although many looked forward to the show, I wondered what position this artist would take knowing that families across the globe would be watching. I must say that I was not shocked to find that she did what she has done for years.
She wore an outfit that would only be in the adult section of most stores and acted as if she were in a room with her husband, trying to turn him on. Her dance movements were inappropriate, which I’m sure caused the millions of men watching to lust after her and the other women dancing on stage. Gyrating across the stage, I felt sorry for the families across the globe that have to now fight with themselves as to how they will explain the scene to their children.
Appalled…YES! I am appalled. More so, I am saddened for the state that our country is in…and the world. I am also saddened for Beyonce. I remember when she first came out with Destiny’s Child and they proclaimed that they would be different. Now here we are 10 or so years later and they look no different than the rest of the artists out there.
A part of me does not care to do anything but to say my opinion, but there is another part of me that is aware of the individuals that actually take part in these actions. I think of their hearts and their feelings. I don’t want to embarrass anyone, but I don’t agree with what they are doing. I want to challenge Beyonce and the other women, Kelly and Michelle, to ask themselves what they stand for. Who do you represent? Would you look up to who you are now, if this were years ago? When your daughters grow older and you are raising them, will you be proud of who you are today? You have each been given gifts by God and although those gifts won’t be taken away, what you do with them will cost you something. Are you willing to pay the price?
For the women,mothers, wives, men, husbands, and fathers out there, don’t be ashamed if you don’t agree with what our world is standing for. Know that you are not alone. I stand against the filth that is prevalent in our world right now. I wish it were a better place for my children. I pray that God would touch the hearts of all the people in our nation and produce integrity in each one.
Who knows what the next Super Bowl Halftime show will be like…
