Beyonce during an interview with Elle clears the air about the confusion of being anti-police because of the controversy surrounding her new song ‘Formation’. She said, “I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken.”
Beyonce goes on to express her “admiration and respect for officers and the families of the officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe.” But she wants to make it clear that she is “against police brutality and injustice,” which isn’t the same thing as being anti-police.
“If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me,” she adds.
“I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.”
