Beyonce got a lot of unexpected backlash from the video and her performance of the song “Formation” during the halftime show at this year’s Superbowl. Many people called it racist, anti-police, and divisive but Bey remained silent…until now!
The superstar is finally talking about the drama in the latest issue of Elle magazine and she says that those who perceive any negative message in the video are “completely mistaken.”
“I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice,” she said to Elle. “Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be a part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.”
Beyonce’s “Formation World Tour” will be at the AT&T Stadium on May 9th. Click HERE to win your way in!
