For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. ~ Romans 1:21, ESV

Are you kidding me???  Why was this ok?  When is it ever a good idea to disrespect your spouse on national TV? Sonny&Cher tried it that ended in divorce, Ike and Tina Turner tried it, look what happened there. Also, why don’t these two people have a clue?  How hard is it to think that through? And what about their children, is that something their kids should be proud of, years from now, when they are adults looking back at their parents careers?  Or after their parents are divorced because of a lack of respect for each other?  I just don’t get it?  These were the things I was thinking as soon as I saw her silhouette on the Grammy’s.  And then, when her husband came out, I just sighed and shook my head, sadly.  I could only stand to watch for 5 minutes before I turned the show off for good and didn’t watch anymore of it. Since it started so horribly, I said, “it probably will only get worse, so I’m done.”

So, this is what we’ve come too, it was so embarrassing to see that, and I felt sorry for that couple who for whatever reason felt it necessary to show the lack of honor and respect for one another, and their family, or the institution of marriage.  I really do think people are selling their souls for fame and fortune.  It is truly one thing to see a young woman who is unmarried, shake around, touch herself, cladly dressed, and stick her tongue out at the audience, but it is certainly another, to see a married couple parade around with the wife looking like a stripper, and the husband, showing her off to all those people like she was an exhibit, and being proud of it.

A lot of people will say this was just them being provocative, but I say NO, this was just poor taste, bad judgement, and selfish. This was as bad as Janet Jackson, and Justin Timberlake, at the super bowl 10 years ago. This was about celebrities, getting too big for their britches until they have no moral compass anymore, and think everything is about the next shock value regardless of who it hurts, influences, or shames.  All of these people have family, who will have to live with the aftermath of their tasteless performance.  I know this is all nothing new, but it’s also nothing I ever want to see again.  Which is why I don’t watch TV very much, these days. The funniest thing about this post is, I haven’t watched the Grammy’s in years, and decided to give it a chance, and sadly saw that disaster before my eyes.  Shazza ~ Musings&Rants

  1. Amen… I’ve been wondering for a long time now, why female singers must appear nearly naked in order to sell records? Aren’t they talented enough to make it on their voices alone? Talk about inequality! How many men do you see appearing onstage with all of their wares hanging out? It’s so sad that they have such little self-respect. How can they respect one another, or the institution of marriage, when they have no self-respect and worse yet, no fear of the Lord? The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, fools despise wisdom and instruction. Sadly, the world is filled with a lot of fools, and those who watch, encourage (by buying their cds), and enjoy such things are just as foolish as those who act out in such ways. Keep up the good posts, Sis, they’re right on!

    Love you,

    • Cheryl I hear you girl, I was so saddened by this. I’ve never liked Beyonce anyway, and this just makes me angry, that she is still up to her double minded messages to young women, and she waits to get married and have a baby, to take her stripper act to the next level. I’m surprised the two of them even bothered to get married first, and then have a baby. Why get married at all, if this is what you think of marriage?

      • Keep posting this like this, Sharon, because most young people today have never heard the word of God, and their parents buy their music for them, and in doing so, encourage them to idolize these people. Therefore, they see nothing wrong with what these people do. In fact, they look up to them and emulate them. But, whenever someone reads posts like this one that you’ve written, it will cause them to pause and think about things in a different light. You never know what seeds you’re planting. 🙂
