Elitist, Happy Cuba Traveler “Shocked” at All The Backlash

beyonce

Feh...

Jessica Chasmar @ The Washington Times -

Pop icon Beyonce called the amount of criticism she and husband Jay-Z faced for their vacation in Cuba “shocking” in an interview that aired Monday.

“You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. I learned so much about so many people and the country and [all of the criticism] was actually quite shocking,” the singer said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

The music power couple celebrated their fifth anniversary in Havana last month, drawing the ire of several politicians. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have all questioned why — and how — the couple was able to visit the communist country.

I guess Mr. and Mrs. Z only managed to visit the paradise part of Cuba. Truth be told, this pampered princess of the Obama White House could have made a big impact on publicizing the plight of the real Cuban people who suffer everyday under apartheid, and most especially the brave mission of the government abused Ladies in White. But she and her husband instead chose the easy propaganda path so many other American celebrities stroll on while in Cuba.

As Mr. T was known to say, "I pity the fool".

    Poor baby (even though she looks like Mike Tyson in drag in that photo). She's such a victim, like her saintly husband. Maybe she WAS shocked. It's not as if these people live in the real world. One thing seems painfully clear: despite the nominally "educational" nature of the vacation, I mean trip, she didn't learn a damn thing. NADA. Maybe Berta Soler can clue her in, but I seriously doubt she or Jay-Z are interested in the likes of Berta. After all, it's not as if she were Assata Shakur.

    Beauty tip for Beyonce, Madonna, et al: the female bodybuilder look is NOT sexy. It's gross.
