Beyonce Knowles has denied that she made an anti-gay comment in a recent interview with The Sun. Their interview described her as having said that God would not let her kiss a woman in her comments about about Madonna and Britney’s onstage kiss during the MTV Video Music Awards.
Beyonce issued a statement on her website saying, “I’d like to clarify any confusion over some quotes that were attributed to me totally out of context in a recent interview. I have never judged anyone based on his or her sexual orientation and have no intention of starting now. I have a lot of gay and lesbian fans and I love them no differently than my straight fans.”
Here are the quotes for that article:
Beyonce Knowles tells The Sun despite her sexy stage acts, she draws the line at sharing a live girl-on-girl kisses like Madonna and Britney Spears did.
“I have standards. There are things I will not do,” she said. “I always carry myself like a lady. I don’t feel like I ever do anything raunchy. Maybe people here have a different meaning of the word raunchy, but I’m not disrespectful or dirty or nasty. The movements to Crazy In Love were inspired by a traditional African dance — I don’t think there’s anything TOO sexy about it. It’s entertainment and I believe God is OK with that. I honestly believe He wants people to celebrate their bodies, as long as you don’t compromise your Christianity in the process.”
