“Someone like Beyonce, who I think is a fantastic musician, a beautiful voice as true as a bell,” 79-year-old Germaine Greer began.
“Umm, why has she always got to be f***ing naked and have her t**s hanging out? Why?” she continued.
“I’m not saying you have to keep your clothes on but why is sexual display part of the job? I might as well ask that question to a barmaid who says she doesn’t get any tips if she doesn’t show cleavage.”
The controversial remarks were also directed at female sports athletes, who Greer criticised for not being fully clothed.
“Why do women athletes have to be naked? I watched bloody figure-skating and the woman is virtually naked,” she said.
