As they ... Read More

Since she was 17, Beyoncé has shown us how talented, beautiful, and sexy she is. She is the woman who unapologetically tells men that she's too bootylicious for them and that if they liked it, well, then they should have put a ring on it.

The bad news is PBS is lame, and they cut a part of her acceptance speech where she talked about Sarah Palin and the politics of conservative women. The unedited speech leaked, however, and went viral, exposing ... Read More
