(KTVI) – Rush Limbaugh took a shot at Beyonce saying she has done a “total 180” on his talk show Wednesday.

Limbaugh: “Beyonce used to be the lead for a three-girl group called Destiny’s Child, and their songs were attempts to inspire young women not to take any grief from men. Right, Mr. Snerdley? Essentially don’t take any grief. Don’t let these guys walk over you. Don’t do this; don’t do that. Walk away! You don’t need to put up with that. She’s done; took a 180. Beyonce, now having been married, having been impregnated and giving birth to Blue Ivy, is going out on a new tour and they may as well call it “the Bow Down, B-i-itch Tour.”

The lyrics of the song paint a slightly different picture. Her message seems to be aimed at other vocalist. Beyonce sings, “I know when you were little girls, you dreamt of being in my world. Don’t forget it, don’t forget it. Respect that. Bow Down Bitches.”

Limbaugh didn’t back off on his claims after his interpretation of the song was attacked Thursday. He admits he went off the title of the song and that was enough to analyze what he saw as the singer’s transformation.

” If you didn’t know anything about it, would you have learned anything in that story?  Not much.  (laughing)  No.  Snerdley just said, “You didn’t hear her song title.”  It’s not hers; it’s mine.  That’s my point.  They’re all accusing me of writing the song. They’re accusing me of titling the song. The only thing they haven’t accused me of is singing the song.  The song is Bow Down, B-i-itches, and it’s about how women go ahead, like I did, go get married, bow down, rich guy, everything’s cool now. Forget being independent.”

Mixed reviews have come on the song, including tweets by fellow singer Keyshia Cole.
