Lily Tomlin Says Beyonce Is "Selling a Lot of Sex to Teeny-Boppers"

In a recent interview with the LGBT-themed website PrideSource.com, 74-year-old actress LILY TOMLIN didn't seem all that impressed with the image BEYONCÉ is presenting to young girls.

 

 

When asked for her thoughts on Beyoncé referring to herself as a "modern-day feminist," Lily said, quote, "She's a pretty popular woman, and she's married to a very powerful man, but she's still selling sex.

 

 

"She's selling a lot of sex to teeny-boppers . . . I mean, she's fantastically beautiful and [she] dances, but, you know, it's very suggestive.  If I was a 10-year-old, I would try to emulate her like most 10-year-olds do."

 

 

That being said, it isn't personal.  Lily added that she "likes" Beyoncé . . . and that she doesn't really have an informed opinion, because she doesn't follow Beyoncé's career closely.

 

 

She said, quote, "I'm familiar with her image and how incredibly vivacious and sexual she is to watch . . . so I just chalk it up to the culture, [which] is so sexualized with girls and women."  (You can read the whole interview, here.)
