Screen Shot 2013-02-15 at 9.35.23 AMMedia mogul Donald Trump slammed Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance as ‘ridiculous’ and inappropriate. Appearing on the ‘Howard Stern Show,’ Trump said the singer was too ‘suggestive’ for a national audience.

‘When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal,’ Trump, 66, said. ‘I thought it was ridiculous … I thought it was not appropriate.’
Beyonce’s performance was heavily praised by music critics, despite the unflattering photographs that emerged afterwards of her making particularly aggressive faces while she danced.

Trump said he thought it was strange that no one else has criticized her for her scandalous dance moves.

‘There’s been no mention of it,’ he said. ‘So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass.’
Trump isn’t shy about making his opinions known on other celebrities and well-known personalities.
