Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) is releasing a new book, God, Guns, Grits and Gravy — in advance of his upcoming 2016 presidential run.
In his new book, obtained by U.S. News and World Report — Huckabee has an opinion or two on The Carters and their financial relationship dynamic.
“My reaction: Why?” he writes. “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?”
His comment stems from the couple’s “Drunk in Love” duet performance at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Huckabee announced his departure from his position at Fox News last week in order to prepare for his upcoming presidential campaign.
