Mike Huckabee slams Jay Z, says he’s a ‘Pimp’ For ‘Exploiting’ Beyoncé

For some inexplicable reason, former Fox News pundit and GOP governor, Mike Huckabee decided to weigh in on Jay Z and Beyoncé in his new book. The result? An offensive statement calling the rapper a “pimp” who exploits his wife.

Passages in Huckabee’s forthcoming book about today’s “fractious” American society, God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy, due out January 20, touch on “popular culture provocations from Jay Z and Beyoncé,” according to the book’s description on Amazon.

U.S. World News & World Report published a handful of quotes Thursday ahead of the book’s release, one of which focused on Jay Z and Beyoncé’s 2014 Grammys performance of “Drunk in Love,” which Huckabee compares to “foreplay”:

‘My reaction: Why? Beyoncé is incredibly talented –- gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer –- without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?’

This isn’t the first time Huckabee has been involved in a critique about the superstar singer’s performances. Rachel Campos-Duffy, former “Real World” cast member and wife of conservative Wisconsin congressman Sean Duffy, went on Huckabee’s radio show and talked about Beyoncé’s 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

“It looked like a stripper show,” she said. “I half expected a pole to pop out of the platform there.”
