Beyonce is too hot for TV? Her new perfume ad gets banned in the UK…at least until 7:30 at night (sorry kiddies). IMO the commercial is no more provocative than her videos but see for yourself.

    Looks like Facebook is doing a pants check:

    ” “Please upload a government-issued ID to this report and make sure that your full name, date of birth, and photo are clear. You should also black out any personal information that is not needed to verify your identity (e.g., social security number).”

    “If you do not have access to a scanner, a digital image of your photo ID will be accepted as well. Rest assured that we will permanently delete your ID from our servers once we have used it to verify the authenticity of your account.” ”

    Nothing like the Kyriarchy coming around to make sure everyone is binary compliant.

    “Beyoncé’s body movements and the camera’s prolonged focus on shots of her dress slipping away to partially expose her breasts created a sexually provocative ad that was unsuitable to be seen by young children.” Suuure.. because as we all know, young children are notorious for their distaste of nudity! I’m pretty sure that any 5-year-old who saw that ad would briefly wonder why the lady isn’t wearing any clothes, and then get distracted by something else and forget about it altogether.

    Funny how what’s considered “unsuitable for children” is often just what’s unsuitable for their parents.
