Beyonce has surprised us all. Not just by secretly dropping a new album titled "Beyonce" but also by posing a serious competition to Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Rihana. You may ask why? Well the music videos of Beyonce's new album show the singer in her X-rated avatar and some critics have dubbed her latest effort as "the most X-rated pop album since Madonna's Erotica!"

The mother to almost 2-year-old Blue Ivy is seen in a very provocative pose in the video of the song "Partition" where she is writhing on the floor almost naked. In other music videos of "Drunk in Love" and "Blow" the wife of Jay Z is seen skimpily dressed in various clothes and even wearing just a very revealing bodysuit. Her lyrics goes like this, "I cooked this meal for you naked."
Some of the campaigners have not liked the new naked Beyonce and have reportedly filed a complaint to the website YouTube where her latest album's 17 videos can be seen. Mediawatch U.K., a group that "campaigns for socially responsible media and is against the content which is potentially harmful," has accused Beyonce of jumping the bandwagon by the explicit content.
"This is such a shame to see because Beyonce didn't get to where she is by jumping on the same bandwagon as Rihanna and people like that who we expect to be explicit and controversial," said the group.
"She was the one we always thought we could count on to set a good example and keep producing music with powerful messages that empowered women and girls. And I would have thought that a star of her magnitude wouldn't need to do something like this," said Vivienne Pattison of the group.
"Especially as a mother herself, it's very surprising that she would do this. This is now on YouTube and children can see it," she expressed he concern.
Neil McCormick from The Telegraph has called the album an "X-rated stuff, perhaps the rudest mainstream pop album since Madonna's Erotica."
"... post-motherhood Beyoncé now wants to assert some adult credentials. There are lots of sensuous, grinding slow jams about sex, accompanied by videos of her flaunting her backside, watched by her cigar-smoking husband as if he's a voyeur at a strip show. It's not exactly subtle," adds McCormick.
Some of Miley's fans are enraged that why is it when Beyonce goes naked it is seen in different light. "Why when @Beyonce twerks half naked is it empowering and when @MileyCyrus does it it's exploitative? I don't get the rules any more," writes Jerome Taylor on Twitter.
The Queen Bey is also accused of exposing her daughter Blue Ivy in the music video of "Blue" where the child is seen holding her mother's hand and walking. Critics have slammed Beyonce for "cashing-in" on little daughter's name.
No matter how many critics are slamming Beyonce for going naked on the album no one can deny the fact that he latest effort has taken iTunes by storm and the album is on the verge to becoming no.1 album of 2013! Meanwhile enjoy the videos below
