Keyshia Cole has always been known to be very outspoken, but she may have burned a lot of bridges in the music industry when she decided to take jabs at Beyonce on her Twitter account recently. After Beyonce’s camp released her controversial “Bow Down” song, Keyshia took to the social networking site and called Beyonce out for being what she feels is a hypocrite. Keyshia immediately became a new target for the Beyhive and now it’s been confirmed that she has been placed on the ignore list for certain music producers and even some of her fellow singers have made it clear that they feel she needs to sit down and shut up. Regardless, that hasn’t managed to make Keyshia back down from her statements and she still takes to her Twitter account to go on rants, making many question if she has a publicist.
Keyshia’s mother Frankie was around during the promo rounds for season two of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and she decided to speak up for Keyshia when she was asked why she decided to go after Beyonce and Michelle Williams. Interestingly enough, Frankie said Keyshia only took shots out of boredom and her favorite R&B group is actually Destiny’s Child. She tells WRUG Media:
“Sometimes she gets bored. She didn’t mean no harm. Actually, it was a compliment. because Michelle did keep up. But she did say I’m not Frankie’s Child, I’m Destiny’s Child. Shout out to Keyshia. But my baby gon’ get that Grammy. Shout out to Michelle, Beyonce, and what’s the other one’s name? Deez nuts! I’m just playing. Shout out to Destiny’s Child. Y’all did a wonderful job.
“And Keyshia didn’t mean no harm. Y’all just gotta give her the benefit of the doubt. She’s married. Sometimes she gets bored. She has her Kodak moments but when she says something negative, that means it’s positive. That’s how she rolls.
“My baby loves all the celebrities. She loves everybody. Sometimes she has a bad way of showing it, a funny way of showing it. But when she focus on you that means that she loves you and is complimenting you. And I want to be like Keyshia when I grow up. She didn’t mean no harm. She loved it. She make you work. She just ain’t gon’ give you no compliment. You have to catch that and work for it. Keyshia didn’t mean no harm, she loves Destiny’s Child. That really is her favorite group. And the plot thickens.”
