Keyshia Cole Slams Beyonce & ‘Bow Down’

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Keyshia Cole seemed to diss Beyonce’s new song “Bow Down/I Been On” on Monday, unleashing a torrent of backlash from Beyonce’s fans.

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.
