Raven-Symoné on Pop Stars and Beyoncé: 'Put Some Pants On'

The actress has some suggestions for today's music icons.

Speaking with no filter? That's just so Raven.
Raven-Symoné has been grabbing headlines ever since she started her stint as guest host on The View. We can see why ABC is reportedly so desperate to give her a permanent seat at the table! A few weeks after she appeared to agree with a Univision host who said Michelle Obama looked like an animal, the outspoken actress is seemingly coming after another "untouchable" celeb: Beyoncé.


When Whoopi Goldberg blasted Mike Huckabee's constant criticism of Bey's sexuality in her music and performance, Raven chimed in, "Okay, I have an issue, I love — oh, here we go with the Bey fans again ... but I just need somebody to put some pants on when people are performing nowadays." Raven then tried to say she is not "on" Bey but she is on "pop stars in general that like to not wear pants when they perform." She also added, "I think there does need to be some class in the female pop world." Raven, however, did praise Janet Jackson for being sexual but keeping it classy. 
Now, we know what happens next. It's just a matter of time before the Beyhive swarms around Raven's social media pages. But at this point, the former Cosby Show star is probably used to getting dragged on Twitter. She caused a stir with her comments to Oprah about not identifying as African-American, her comments about Univision host Rodner Figueroa after he was fired for comparing the first lady to a cast member from Planet of the Apes, and now this.
