Harry Belafonte Trashes Jay-Z, Beyonce!
Jay-Z and Beyonce were recently named the Forbes #1 Power Couple, but recently Harry Belafonte movie legend and social activist had some very stern words for the couple.He said that they are all flash and no substance, reported the Hollywood Reporter.
If anyone can make a statement like this, I think that our Elder Harry Belafonte can because he has earned the right to do so.
During his interview with The Hollywood Reporter he was asked the question: Are you happy with the image of members of minorities in Hollywood today?
Belafonte: Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can kill Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all — excuse my French — [expletive]. It is sad. And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.
