SAVE your out­rage —

BEY­ONCE does not need it. Peo­ple ac­tu­ally got up in arms this week be­cause of the so-called dou­ble-stan­dards in a live duet be­tween a dressed­down ED SHEERAN and a glammed up Bey­once (be­low).

It was ap­par­ently ev­i­dence of how men are judged for their work, not looks. Women, how­ever, are pres­sured to put ef­fort into their ap­pear­ance in or­der to be taken se­ri­ously.

Oh, please! Like any­one forces Queen Bey to wear her ridicu­lous en­sem­bles. If she wanted to sing in a track­suit, I doubt any­one would ques­tion it. It would prob­a­bly in­spire fans to h head to their near­est Bonds out­let in search of some­thing sim­i­lar.

Bey and Ed have al­ways had their own styles. His is to look like a grungy teenager in clothes found on his bed­room floor. Hers is to look like she’s just stepped out of a mu­sic video.

We shouldn’t wear any other sug­ges­tion.
