She first paid her “Bills, Bills, Bills” as a member of Destiny’s Child, but she started making the real Lemonade, when she went solo. But while the wife of Jay-Z and mother of three has built an untouchable empire, not everyone’s buzzing about the Beyhive.
Here are the stars who have openly trashed Beyonce.
So he’s never come out and said he hates Beyonce, but during multiple interviews over the years,rapper 50 Cent has implied he’s not the biggest fan of Queen Bey or her husband, Jay-Z. Speaking to People in 2015, 50 Cent defended the Grammy’s decision to award album of the year to Beck over Beyonce, saying, “[Beck] produced[his] record, he wrote the record. There’s eleven producers on Beyonce’s album[..]”
But a year earlier, as Beyonce and Jay-Z tried to move on from leaked security footage showing Bey’s sister Solange attacking Jay-Z, 50 Cent recalled to The Breakfast Club, “And B was, one time she jumped…off of the ledge and came running over cuz she thought me and J had issues and I was like what the f—“
And as 50 recalls it, B got up in his face.
“She jumped down and no she was like this ‘what?’ like that Bonnie and Clyde for real ‘you try this or what, boy? I’m here…’
“she bugged out like at me.”
Singer Keri Hilson was accused of shading Beyonce in the remix of her 2009 single, “Turnin’ Me On”, because Hilson’s lyrics seemingly referenced the hook in Beyonce’s hit single, “ Irreplaceable.”
On her track, Hilson sings : “[…]She can sing, but need to move it to the left[..]”
Hilson has adamantly denied the alleged shade, but when Juicy Magazine asked her to hold their latest issue at the 2011 Soul Train Awards, Hilson seemed game until she saw Bey and Jay on the cover.
Years later, Hilson said she was still being tormented by the Beyhive over the alleged diss. According to HuffPost, she tweeted : “[…] Is everything I tweet gonna be’intentionally misinterpreted’ as a statement about someone [or] drama I know nothing about? You have no idea what your hateful words could do to someone’s spirit. Years of verbal abuse from strangers all day long. Enough is enough[…]”
One person who won’t be bowing down to Queen Bey anytime soon : Keyshia Cole.
The R&B singer took to Twitter to share her two cents after Beyonce released snippets of the song, “ Bow Down/I Been On”, which later became “Flawless”, online. The track sells Bey in full Sasha Fierce mode, an image Cole allegedly wasn’t buying.
She tweeted : “ Can’t stand when people all self righteous when it’s convenient , it makes them look good.”
And she followed that up with a tweet calling Bey out on her supposed hypocrisy.
“First ‘Women need to Stick together’ now bitches better Bow.”
She explained things on The Breakfast Club, saying, “I…y’know seen Beyonce a few times , she’s always a very sweet girl. To me that just wasn’t her…her thing”
In April 2016, Piers Morgan dedicated an entire op-ed in the Daily Mail to dissing Mrs. Carter. He wrote, “Jay-Z’s not the only one who needs to be nervous about Beyonce, the born-again-black woman with a political mission.”
Apparently Morgan didn’t appreciate Beyonce appearing alongside the mothers of Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin in her visual album, Lemonade.
He continued, “I have huge personal sympathy for both women and there is no doubt that African-Americans have been treated appallingly by certain rogue elements within the country’s police forces. But I felt very uneasy watching these women being used in this way to sell an album. It smacks of shameless exploitation.”
In December 2017, actress Sanaa Lathan was accused of flirting with Jay-Z and biting Beyonce in the face at a party.
Comedian Tiffany Haddish told GQ that an unnamed actress was getting too close to Jay-Z at a party, so Beyonce allegedly intervened. The Chomper’s identity remains a mystery, but the Beyhive thinks it’s cracked the case.
Fans cross-referenced Haddish’s gossip with dirt she reportedly dished during a stand-up routine. Haddish supposedly identified the biter as someone who used to date rapper French Montana, and since Lathan has been linked to Montana in the past, that coincidence was enough for a lot of folks.
Page Six even ran a headline declaring : “Sanaa Lathan confirmed as star who bit Beyonce.”
After the story went viral in March 2018, Lathan tweeted, “Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite.”
