Is this an anthem?

In the official video Beyonce sings, "When he F*** me good I take his ass to Red Lobster." Yea, that's what young girls should be listening to, especially in a city where infant mortality rivals third world countries

Yeah but

...Beyoncé is married. She can't talk about sex?

Just to be clear

There is no research that supports a direct tie between Red Lobster, a delicious seafood eatery, and infant mortality.
