“Temptations crooner Otis Williams is concerned that modern music has no morality as Rihanna and Beyonce embrace a ‘sex sells’ attitude.”
Motown’s legendary ‘Big Daddy’ is callin’ out Beyonce and Rihanna for “selling sex” rather than music. ‘The Temptations’ OG, Otis Williams, singled out Bey and RiRi as two of the leading faces of pop music, whose tunes are far from tempting to his musical ears.
“He’s concerned that the money made by the musicians are now more important than its morality.”
Williams’ word dropped during a recent interview — as The Temptations tour the UK with The Four Tops in a celebration of Motown music. The OG member of ‘The Temptations’ also added he’s “appalled by some of the stuff that’s being played on the radio.”
Here’s what’s Otis Williams had to say:
“A great song will always stand the test of time…
I watched Beyoncé at the Grammys, and I have to say I’m a huge Beyoncé fan, but what she did with Jay Z I thought, ‘No you ain’t girlfriend’!
I love Rihanna but I’m shocked by her and a few others that are coming out with very explicit things.”
