Brian Kilmeade of Fox News slams Beyoncé over 'vile' song lyrics

On The Ingraham Angle Monday, guest host Brian Kilmeade and Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo dragged Beyoncé over lyrics in the song “Heated” off her new album Renaissance. The segment began with the two talking about Beyoncé’s decision to remove the word spaz from the song, which they appeared to mock her for.

“Now, Brian,” Arroyo said after playing a clip of the song, “Beyoncé uses the N-word, filthy terms for male/female genitalia, breasts and ass, but spaz is the offensive term in that lyric.”

But it turned into a personal attack on Beyoncé, and not just for lyrics that they find offensive.

“Do you like when you get a little bit older sometimes you mellow? I mean, she’s a parent,” Kilmeade said. “You know, you would think we haven’t really seen her in a while, barely dressed dancing around, and now she comes back more vile than ever, putting out X-rated lyrics.”

Kilmeade and Arroyo went on to rip Drake, who co-wrote “Heated.”

“Written by Drake, incidentally. He wrote those lovely lyrics,” Arroyo said. “But why you would sing them as a renowned woman who young people look to, I don’t quite get that.” “Right, and the wonderfully put together — the great poetry there,” Kilmeade said. “I think it’ll go down in history.”

RAYMOND ARROYO: Now, Brian, Beyoncé uses the N-word, filthy terms for male, female genitalia, breasts and ass. But spaz is the offensive term in that lyric.

KYLIE MAR: On "The Ingraham Angle," Monday, guest host, Brian Kilmeade, and Fox News contributor, Raymond Arroyo slammed Beyoncé for lyrics in her song, "Heated," off her new album, "Renaissance."

[MUSIC - BEYONCE, "HEATED"]

MUSIC: Spazzin' on that (BLEEP), spaz on that (BLEEP). Dimples on my hip, stretch marks on my (BLEEP). Drinkin' my water, mindin' my biz. Monday, I'm overrated, Tuesday, on my (BLEEP). Flip-flop, flippy, flip-floppin' (BLEEP)

KYLIE MAR: Kilmeade went on to personally attack Beyoncé, and not just for her lyrics.

BRIAN KILMEADE: You know, like, when you get a little bit older, sometimes you mellow. I mean, she's a parent.

RAYMOND ARROYO: Yes.

BRIAN KILMEADE: You know, you would think we haven't really seen her in a while, barely dressed, dancing around. And now she comes back more vile than ever, putting out X-rated-- X-rated lyrics.

KYLIE MAR: Beyoncé made headlines, Monday, when she said she'd remove the word, "spaz," from the song after receiving backlash. But Arroyo believes that isn't going far enough.

RAYMOND ARROYO: So Beyoncé is removing the word, "spaz." Never mind that it continues-- "on that backside." That's perfectly fine. I don't think she went far enough with the cleanup and the lyric revision.

KYLIE MAR: Kilmeade and Arroyo also ripped Drake, who co-wrote the song with Beyoncé.

RAYMOND ARROYO: Written by Drake, incidentally. Hew wrote those lovely lyrics. But why you would sing them as a renowned woman who young people look to, I don't quite get that.

BRIAN KILMEADE (SARCASTICALLY): Right. And they were wonderfully put together, the great poetry there. I think it will go down in history.
