Bill O'Reilly "Can't Understand" Beyoncé's "Partition" Video

FUSE TV - Bill O'Reilly "Can't Understand" Beyoncé's "Partition" Video

In a shocking turn of events, Bill O'Reilly has revealed that he doesn't really get Beyoncé's steamy "Partition" video. Last night, the Fox News host brought Russell Simmons on his show ostensibly so that the rap mogul could promote his new book, but the appearance quickly morphed into a debate about Beyoncé.

"Teenage girls look up to Beyoncé," O'Reilly says to Simmons as clips from the "Partition" video play on screen. "Particularly girls of color. She's an idol to them. I'm saying, why on Earth would this woman do that?" Simmons responded by paraphrasing an earlier argument he made in order to broadly defend the art of hip hop: "I think the artist's job throughout history has been to say things people are inspired by."

Later in the discussion, O'Reilly interrupted Simmons after he referenced Beyoncé's art, exclaiming "That's art?! Beyoncé in the back of a limo having sex and referencing Monica Lewinsky, is art?" Simmons came back with a measured retort: "Yeah, it is actually," he said. "She's a brilliant artist."
