Garcelle Beauvais is coming to her own defense after she made some unfavorable comments about Beyoncé and overt sexuality.
If you missed it, Garcelle told Hello Beautiful:
For me, you’re obviously flattered when someone calls you sexy or thinks you’re sexy. I think that’s great. But, for me now, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it. I think you can wear a great short dress, but if you have long sleeves and you’re only showing leg. I think you have to stick to a body part and show that. I don’t think you have to show all of it. As I get older, I still want to be sexy, but I want to do it in a different way. I want to do it in a way that’s more classy. Certain things are just too overt for kids. I love Beyonce. I love her. I think she’s beautiful and talented. But, I think there has to be a fine line where you have to take responsibility for what you do. I think it’s good to be sexy, but sexy can come across in so many different ways. It doesn’t have to be everything showing out grinding all of the time.
Of course, the Beyhive didn’t take too kindly to the criticism and attacked Garcelle via social media and reminded her that she herself posed for Playboy in 2007.
Garcelle later tweeted:
I love Beyonce! What I said was taken out of context, and of course I support women being sexy!

We see where she was coming from, but you can’t mention Beyoncé without certain fans getting defensive!
