Wendy Williams Talks Beyoncé, Jay Z, And National Anthem

Wendy Williams kicked off her show with “Hot Topics,” which is a segment based on the latest celebrity news and gossip. Of course, there was plenty to say about the Super Bowl. Williams said she liked the halftime show overall and felt that both women did a great job. Ultimately, though, she felt Jennifer Lopez “won” the show. She said Lopez’s more glamorous look and dance moves are what sold her.

Williams condemned Jay Z and Beyoncé for sitting during the National Anthem. It was hard for people not to notice that two of the world’s biggest stars didn’t stand for the National Anthem. When Demi Lovato sang the Star Spangled Banner, most everyone stood up with their hands over their hearts. But the Carters did not.

Williams condemned the couple for not standing to honor their country. “I don’t know about you, and our country might be in a bad way, but there’s no place I’d rather live than America.”

Williams’ main point to Beyoncé and Jay Z was that they should be proud to be Americans and show that pride by standing during the anthem. When she discussed the halftime show, she mentioned Shakira and Jennifer Lopez singing “Born in the USA” and suggested that they were proud to be American. She then reminded Beyoncé and Jay Z that they, too, should “be proud” of where they come from. “You should have stood up.”

There has been controversy surrounding the Star Spangled Banner in the NFL for several years now due to the protests started by Colin Kaepernick. And it seems that Beyoncé and Jay Z were standing with those protesters by not standing at all.
