Keyshia Cole Slams Beyonce & ‘Bow Down’
The Twitter drama began when Cole appeared to call out Beyonce over the track’s confrontational lyrics, implying that the singer (whom she doesn’t name) is a hypocrite for following up previous messages promoting unity with a song that includes the line, “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, b*tches.”
“Can’t stand when people all self righteous when it’s convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk sh*t when convenient 2 FOH,” tweeted Cole. She added, “I done kept it real from the start! #RespectTHAT.” Cole continued, “First ‘Women need to Stick together’ now b*tches better Bow. Smh. But it’s all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh*t. But when I speak my mind its a prob. #Well #StayMad.” Fans were indeed mad.
When one Beyonce supporter tweeted at Cole, “f*ck yo unity,” Cole replied, “Never said there was any. IM not in denial… God Bless.” After another Twitter user accused Cole of “hating on everybody,” the performer protested, “How am I hating? no Mamm or sir. whatever u may be. No H8.” Then Cole plugged her appearance on Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” This is not the first time there’s been a beef between Cole and Beyonce’s fan base. Last month, she dissed Beyonce’s Destiny’s Child mate Michelle Williams after the group performed at the Super Bowl.
