Keyshia Cole Doesn't Bow Down To Anyone- Clutch Magazine

Keyshia Cole is at it again on Twitter. I’ve lost track of how many times she’s argued with fans or tried to put other artists on blast, but on the heels of Beyonce’s release of “Bow Down”, Cole had a few choice tweets directed to the Houston singer:

 

 

 

The response to Keyshia’s version of “keeping it real” last night hit an all time low.

 

 

There were several death threats from people who consider themselves a part of  Beyonce’s bumble bee infestation called the “beyhive”.  Sure Keyshia pointed out the hypocrisy in Beyonce’s “Bow Down” lyrics, but you’d think she would realize by now, the Beyonce-machine is at 100 right now, and feeding into a supposed diss track only fuels the controversy.

After her Beyonce rant, Keyshia decided it would be a good idea to promote her own music and appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show, promoting her own music and performing “Trust & Believe”.

When a celebrity voices their opinion via a social media outlet do you think it turns away fans or possibly garner new ones?

    +1 million MimiLuvs. I completely agree with you. This double standard is my primary issue with the supposed “Beyonce controversy.” Men are able to occupy both spaces and women cannot, which is unfair. I think a better example would be Chris Brown, who experienced success with the song “Look at Me Now” in which he gloats about his success while rapping. Women should not be called self-important or arrogant for patting themselves on the back. If she thinks she is the best of the best, she should be able to say so. In fact, more women should acknowledge and highlight their strengths, a practice Sheryl Sandberg recommends.

    Female entertainers should also have the right to address their haters. I don’t understand why some women are taking this song so personally. Many male artists have produced diss tracks before and people did not feel as though the song specifically pertained to them. This is just a song, not a personal letter from the woman herself.

    Beyonce is telling people to bow down because she refers to herself as King Bey; laymen typically bow down to royalty. I don’t understand why people have trouble comprehending this simple concept.

    One can acknowledge the accomplishments of others while simultaneously admitting that she is more accomplished than others. Not everyone has the same capabilities.
