Beyonce and Jay-Z opened the 2014 Grammy Awards with a steamy performance of their hit record “Drunk in Love” that still has people talking.

Others drew comparisons to Miley Cyrus.

“Beyonce can twerk and dance dirty on stage [but]  if Miley does it she’s such a horrible person,” Twitter user Clarkette wrote.

Still others defended Beyonce’s performance, pointing out that while Cyrus twerked on a married man, Robin Thicke, at the MTV VMA’s, Beyonce was doing a sexy dance for her husband.

In a mini-documentary made with the release of her secret self-titled album, Beyonce talked about the pride she felt in showing off her post-baby body and sensuality.

“I worked crazily to get my body back,” she said. “I wanted to show my body. I know finding my sensuality, getting back into my body, being proud of growing up, it was important to me, because I know there are so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth.”

“You can have your child, and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and live for yourself,” the superstar said.
