Rush Limbaugh Slams Beyoncé for "Bow Down"

The conservative talk-radio host is critical of King Bey’s new single.

Published March 21, 2013

What do Keyshia Cole and Rush Limbaugh have in common? Well, neither of these very outspoken public figures are fans of Beyoncé’s new single "Bow Down."

Limbaugh, the ever controversial conservative talk-radio host, joined the ranks of critics who dislike the sassy directive Bey delivers in the recently released track.

"She's done a total 180," Limbaugh said of the music superstar during his show on Wednesday. "Beyoncé's now saying 'Go ahead and put up with it!' ... She's going to call herself Mrs. Carter on the 'Bow Down B----s' tour."

Though he was way off on the facts about Beyoncé’s upcoming tour, the far-right blowhard continued.

"She got married, she married the rich guy, she now understands. She now understands that it's worth it to bow down. And she's passing on that advice."

Of course this is not the first time Limbaugh has been critical of a member of the Carter family. In 2009, Jay-Z dissed the conservative pundit in a verse on his song, "Off That."

"Please tell Bill O'Reilly to fall back/ Tell Rush Limbaugh to get off my b---s/ It's 2010, not 1864."

Limbaugh used that slight as an opportunity to criticize the relationship between the hip hop mogul and President Barack Obama. He did the same thing with Beyoncé, pointing out that she was selected by Obama to perform at the presidential inauguration earlier this year.

Neither Beyoncé nor anyone in her camp has responded to the criticism from Limbaugh or Keyshia Cole.
