Michelle Williams has blasted a prominent US politician for making "very, very low" comments about Beyonce.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee slammed Beyonce's provocative music in his book 'God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy', prompting an angry response from her former Destiny's Child band-mate.

The 59-year-old Republican said: "I've had so much uproar over half a page in my book.

"I say she's the most amazing singer, great set of pipes, unbelievable dancer, and she doesn't need to do songs like 'Partition' and 'Drunk in Love' in order to be an amazing and effective talent."

However, Michelle - who's known Beyonce since the late 1990s - was quick to come to her defence.

Speaking on 'The View', she said: "As someone who has definitely come up in a group with her, has seen her hard work and who she is, I just feel like that album and those songs, it was that one moment where she decided to probably do some songs she has always wanted to do.

"To shed that 'I'm a good girl' [image]. She had some freedom and she owned it and she took it. I was definitely offended - I'm not the Carter spokesperson - but to hear some of those comments that you said, I thought were very, very low."
