Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian Slammed for Being Sexy Moms, Twitter Fights Back
By Jackie Willis
Celebrity mothers were the target of a recent New York Post article that called out Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce for wearing revealing clothing after becoming parents. Needless to say, these divas' loyal fans are standing up for the women.
"Would you let your mother leave the house dressed like a tart on a bender?" Andrea Peyser began her editorial.
The write-up first laid into 45-year-old Lopez, questioning whether she was helping to "desensitize the public to the sight of exposed breasts and posteriors displayed like fresh pastries by attention-craving celebrities."
"J.Lo, you're a mother! Dress like one," Peyser wrote.
"My mom, like all adult women, does what she wants," one Twitter user posted in response. "And she could rock the hell out of those dresses to be honest."
"I refuse to be put in a box in that way," Lopez said. "Why, because I'm over 40? So I can't be sexy? Or, is it because I'm a mom? Moms aren't allowed to be sexy. Uh, how did I get my kids in the first place?"
"If I get pregnant again soon, my body is gonna totally transform again. So I’m doing this photo shoot today naked," Kardashian said. "I just want to capture my body and have these photos to last forever."
"I mean at the beginning, when you're losing your pregnancy weight you don't really know how to dress, so that just doesn't count. You just dress as simple as possible," she said. "But I think since I've gotten in shape, and I feel good about myself, I dress I think sexier now than I did before."
"There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality," she told OUT magazine last year. "There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist and a feminist – whatever you want to be -- and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive."
