It’s the deal that’s already seen her dominate television screens and beverage aisles across the globe.
Now, after inking a lucrative arrangement with Pepsi that will ultimately see them serve as one of her many investors, Beyonce has defended her decision to get into bed with the company, after coming under fire for her alleged endorsement of their allegedly unhealthy products.
Find out what she had to say on matter via ‘Flaunt‘ below:
Excerpt via ‘Flaunt’:
Some were critical at your participating in a Pepsi campaign after you moved your body for childhood obesity. Where is the balance between your career objectives and your philanthropy?
“Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance.
When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.”
Well said Bey!
While the argument against the deal some hold weight, it all boils down to- as she accurately put it- choices.
Quite simply, endorsing a product that some may consider sugary is not the same as popping open its bottle and forcing it down an unsuspecting throat.
Perhaps, in a bid to make public figures accountable for every move they make, society’s forgotten to look at ‘self’, blaming obesity on the companies who churn out the sugary delights, instead of questioning those who choose to fill up on them.
However, the question still remains….
Is Beyonce right to endorse Pepsi?
