Beyonce Called a 'Lite Feminist' by Singer Annie Lennox

Beyonce Called a 'Lite Feminist' by Singer Annie Lennox

Beyonce plays the role of photographer while doing some sight-seeing on Tuesday afternoon (October 7) in Paris, France.

The 33-year-old entertainer made it a family day with her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy (not pictured).

Legendary singer Annie Lennox recently was asked to talk about Beyonce considering herself a feminist.

“I would call that ‘feminist lite.’ L-I-T-E. I’m sorry. It’s tokenistic to me. I mean, I think she’s a phenomenal artist – I just love her performances – but I’d like to sit down (with her). I think I’d like to sit down with quite a few artists and talk to them. I’d like to listen to them; I’d like to hear what they truly think,” Annie told Pride Source.

“I see a lot of it as them taking the word hostage and using it to promote themselves, but I don’t think they necessarily represent wholeheartedly the depths of feminism – no, I don’t,” Annie added. “I think for many it’s very convenient and it looks great and it looks radical, but I have some issues with it. I have issues with it. Of course I do. I think it’s a cheap shot. I think what they do with it is cheap and … yeah. What can I tell you? Sex always sell. And there’s nothing wrong with sex selling, but it depends on your audience. If they’re 7-year-old kids, I have issues with it.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Annie Lennox’s opinion on Beyonce?

FYI: Beyonce is carrying a Kurt Geiger London bag.
