Beyonce sets the record straight on her 'Formation' video

Beyoncé caused quite a stir when her video for 'Formation' was debuted on Super Bowl weekend back in February.

Many people saw it as a political statement about police brutality and racism against black people in the US, and the video and song even sparked an anti-Beyonce protest in New York.

However, now the star has commented on the video and says that it is NOT an anti-police statement, but is about taking a stand against injustice. Speaking to Elle, she said: "Anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken.

"I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let's be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things."


She continued: "If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I'm proud of what we created and I'm proud to be a part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way."
