17 Images That Sum Up Your Reaction To Piers Morgan's Opinion On Lemonade

If you've been living under a rock for the last few days you haven't heard Beyonce dropped her visual album Lemonade over the weekend, and FINALLY a voice has broken through the crowd to tell us how to feel about it. Piers Morgan penned an article explaining why he prefers the old Beyonce, the entertainer rather than the activist. THANK GOD.

2. "I once spent a delightful day with her in London for CNN and she was bright, warm, funny, sharp and incredibly impressive."

For a moment, I forgot that Beyonce isn't a vapid pop star. So glad this old white dude has validated her existence.

3. "But just lately, Beyonce’s been adding a far more serious, deeply political and race-fuelled tone to her work."

Ughhhh, Beyonce has allowed her "perspective" and "experience" to inform her art.... But that makes me uncomfortable.

4. "In February of this year, she dropped the song “Formation” which contained references to the activist movement Black Lives Matter. [...] It was seen, understandably, as an attack on U.S. police."

5. "The Black Panthers, set up as a group who would protect black Americans from police brutality, became infamous for their own brutality, especially against police, and widespread criminal and murderous membership within their ranks."

6. "Beyonce’s tribute to them was branded ‘disgraceful and outrageous’ by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, incensed that she had ‘used the platform of the Superbowl to attack the police.’"

7. "I have huge personal sympathy for [Lesley McSpadden and Sybrina Fulton] and there is no doubt that African-Americans have been treated appallingly by certain rogue elements within the country’s police forces."

11. "The new Beyoncé wants to be seen as a black woman political activist first and foremost, entertainer and musician second."

But... This is an album of music... That a musician released... That's wildly entertaining

14. "The one who didn’t use grieving mothers to shift records and further fill her already massively enriched purse."

But if you had to watch it to know they were even in it that's not a selling point. You've already bought it...

15. "The one who didn’t play the race card so deliberately and to my mind, unnecessarily."

Finally, a white person telling people of color when it's appropriate to play the race card.
