Uh Oh…..Bey has broken her silence. For the first time since releasing the video for ‘Formation‘ (which caused such an uproar with some police unions), during her interview with Elle Magazine, Beyonce‘ has given her opinion on the perceived “backlash”.
In Elle magazine, Beyonce said, “I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.”
