Beyoncé slammed by parents after risqué performance

- Mother-of-one wore a thong bodysuit to perform Drunk In Love with Jay Z
- She began the performance straddling a chair, before writhing around and dancing up to her husband
- Many parents took to Twitter to complain that the dance routine was too raunchy for children to watch
- Other said that if Miley Cyrus had performed a similar routine, she would have been slammed for it

Beyoncé's Grammy Awards performance was slammed by concerned parents on Sunday as they deemed the incredibly risqué performance too explicit for their children to watch.

The 32-year-old singer wore a revealing black thong bodysuit over fishnet tights to perform a rendition of her hit Drunk In Love alongside husband Jay Z.

But given Beyoncé's sexy dance routine that accompanied the performance, which aired at 8pm (PST), many parents took to Twitter to complain that the segment was 'disrespectful' and entirely inappropriate for children to watch.

Beyoncé's performance comes after she admitted in a recent mini-documentary that she is proud to embrace her sexuality.
She said: 'I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it. And I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me.'

The singer's often overtly-sexual performances haven't put off President Obama praising Beyoncé as an important role model for children - including his own.

He said recently: 'Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent.'

Meanwhile, many viewers tweeted that if Miley Cyrus had done a similar routine, she would have been slammed for it.
