Grammy Awards 2014: Beyonce’s Performance Considered Too Sexy for Children

Parents are reportedly unhappy with Jay Z and Beyonce’s Grammy Awards performance on Sunday and they took to social networking sites to air their displeasure.
The power couple kicked off the award function night with a steamy performance of their “Drunk in Love” single which parents found too explicit for young viewers.
Beyonce performs "Drunk In Love" at the 56th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California January 26, 2014.
Beyonce’s raunchy performance had her suggestively gyrating against a wooden chair while wearing a barely-there leather thong and fishnet tights. When Jay Z appeared on stage she rubbed against him as he fondled her.
Parents are also furious that the act was aired at prime time -- in the U.S., the risqué routine aired at 8 p.m. on both coasts, and at 7 p.m. central time.
"Beyonce seriously? It's 8:00. That performance was NOT appropriate for children. Thank God mine are in bed. #shameonyou," added a parent, while another said that Beyonce’s act lacked class.
"Sorry Beyoncé!!! Class ALWAYS wins! It wins for our children. Sad day when our kids can't even watch the Grammy's! #Puzzled," the message read.
"Come on people!! Yeah Beyoncé has an amazing voice but that outfit?!?!? Completely no class. Give children something to look up to #absurd," wrote yet another Twitter user.
But, a number of celebrities supported Beyonce’s act. Television actress Ariel Winter tweeted, “@Beyonce is the absolute QUEEN. She had every right to tell us to bow down. Forever my idol. #surfboard.”
Reality show star Khloe Kardashian took to her Instagram account to gush about Beyonce’s fit body, which was on display in a tight leotard.
"Bow down bitches!!! Yonce moment #Grammys #Power #Inspiration #Body," Kardashian wrote.
