Keyshia Cole Reacts to Beyoncé’s "Bow Down"

BeyHive goes in on Cole for Twitter comments aimed at King Bey.

Published March 18, 2013

The BeyHive, a fanatic group of, well, fans, are going in on Keyshia Cole via Twitter.

Stung by the buzz of Beyonce’s "Bow Down" and "I Been On," the @KeyshiaCole Twitter timeline began swelling up earlier today. The first was a tweet from the account: "First ‘Women need to Stick together’ now b----s better Bow. Smh. But it’s all G! Chicks stay shooting the s--t. But when I speak my mind its a prob. #Well #StayMad."

Likely, the reference is to the vitriol that followed Cole’s critique of Michelle Williams’ performance during Beyoncé's all Black women Super Bowl extravaganza.

Prior to that: "Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk s--t when convenient 2 FOH," and, "I done kept it real from the start! #RespectTHAT."

The BeyHive responded to @KeyshiaCole directly and indirectly so much so that "Keyshia" (and even "Keri Hilson," who may or may not have thrown lyrical shade at Beyoncé) became a nationwide Trending Topic (@KeriHilson's been mum on Twitter about #BowDown).

Cole is slated as a guest on tonight's Jimmy Kimmel Live: “Jimmy Kimmel tonight!! airs 11:30 Live!! Singing 'Trust and believe’ and 'I choose you.'"
