Beyonce’s Father Leaves to Make Gospel Music

It’s a mutual decision so there’s no animosity, but Matthew Knowles, Beyonce’s father, will no longer represent his famous daughter. Per Christian Post, instead he will be dedicating his time to “gospel and inspirational music.” This is one instance where a Christian parent was proud of her celebrity daughter’s achievements and we’re referring of course to the latest stories on Mary Hudson’s book pitch on her daughter Katy Perry. I would say Beyonce and Katy Perry both have done their share of sexing up their own music. How come Beyonce’s dad is so casual about it? Maybe he’s just a realist. Beyonce has to make her own decisions on how she’s going to portray herself.

But it does still feel odd between Matthew Knowles interest in gospel music as a Christian and Beyonce’s top 40 music including the hit she did with Destiny’s Child, “Bootylicious.” What were the lyrics again?

I don’t think you ready for this jelly
i don’t think you ready for this jelly
I don’t think you ready for this
Is my body to bootylicious for ya baby
I don’t think you ready for this jelly
i don’t think you ready for this jelly
I don’t think you ready for this
Is my body to bootylicious for ya babe

I don’t have a problem with the song or Beyonce’s beautiful butt, but there’s always this question mark that comes up when I hear about such and such celeb is Christian and then I remember their music or movies and I say to myself, “Really?” I don’t want to be judgmental as I know Christians vary in their beliefs. Then again, what separates Christianity from the mainstream media? Usually some sort of moral outline that doesn’t include exalting the booty. Of course, past generations of Christians are always appalled at the upcoming generation. Can you imagine transporting a Christian from the fifties to witness Christian pop culture in the year 2011? They would have a heart attack.

If you think this post is just another stereotyping of the attitudes of Christian traditionalists then read the comment posted under article on Beyonce’s father: “I’m sure Beyonce’s vulgar sexually charged video’s would make every father proud of their daughters lewd public behavior that is being passed off as entertainment.”
