Bill O’Reilly and Russell Simmons Clash over a Beyoncé Video

In the music video for the Beyoncé song “Partition,” there’s some incredibly raunchy imagery, including car sex and a lyric reference to Monica Lewinsky. Bill O’Reilly was fired up about this Monday night, confronting hip hop mogul Russell Simmons over what kind of message that sends to young black girls when such behavior is glorified by one of their idols.

O’Reilly said the video “glorifies having sex in the back of a limousine,” and wondered “why on earth would this woman do that” when unplanned pregnancy is a problem in the black community. Simmons didn’t defend Beyoncé specifically, but spoke up in support of artists reflecting the reality people live in.

O’Reilly insisted that Beyoncé has “an obligation to protect children” and not to put out “exploitive garbage.” He called the video “inexplicable” and was utterly bemused when Simmons said that the music video is, in fact, a work of art.

  1. Russell Simmons you look and sound like a “ZIP D@MN FOOL”, there goes the funky neighborhood. His kids are protected by his money, so what he’s really saying is FK everybody elses kids, but we so mad at the white-man, dah!!!!!

    The writing is so d@mn clear on the walls, how long black-folks going to keep on losing their (own) battles….!!!!

  2. How about saying ‘it’s not for kids’ and be done with it? I remember when Michael Jackson’s video came out when he trashed the car and everyone got all upset about it, but it wasn’t for kids to begin with. Just because something is mass marketed doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.
    If we are going to customize all entertainment for underprivileged children without good parents then we have a lot of restructuring to do in TV, Film and Music. Good luck with that. I think a more realistic option is providing more balance to the images and messages that are shown in entertainment. Fans have to demand this from the industry if they want to see it.

  3. When will just one from that famous group of hip hoppers come
    forth and say pull your pants up, go school, stop the bad language. The O, Riely’s of the world and all of his co-hearts Define us as a people of thugs , unwed mothers. The Jay Z’s , lLittle wayne’s and many more of great hip hop atrtist . Help people like the O’Rileys. I am proud of what they have accomplished how ever show people what you really stand for. Do not exploit the children then go home put on a suit and hob nob with folks that could care less. We must remember they think no more of you just that you make money for them. Trust me they are a lot of Sterlings in the world Time to change your mo. Believe me you may surprise them and scare them. Get these children on the right track.
