Beyoncé Seemingly Responds To Erykah Badu & Shades Lizzo
Beyoncé has seemingly responded to Erykah Badu and Lizzo’s recent allegations on her Renaissance Tour. Last week Badu pointed out that she and Queen Bey had similar hats worn on their respective tours.
The “Call Tyrone” singer shared a side-by-side photo of the two in similar hats. “Hmm. I guess I’m everyone’s stylist. My favorite chrome mirror hat,” Badu wrote alongside the photo per Page Six.
She additionally went into Beyoncé’s comments writing, “I’m flattered.”
During Beyoncé’s tour stop in Massachusetts Tuesday night (Aug. 1), the Renaissance creator seemingly responded to Badu’s message and shaded Lizzo in the same breath. In her “Break My Soul (The Queens Remix),” she typically sings “Badu, Lizzo, Kelly Rowl.” However, during the Boston performance, she just sang “Badu, Badu, Badu, Badu.”
The alleged Lizzo shade, however, stems from the “Special” singer’s recent legal troubles. The singer is being sued by three of her former tour dancers for sexual harassment and discrimination. Former dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez are accusing the entertainer of multiple wrongdoings during their time of employment by Lizzo (real name Melissa Jefferson) and her Big Grrrl Big Touring Inc.
In a complaint obtained by Billboard, the dancers allege that Lizzo pressured the dancers into attending a live sex show in Amsterdam. The lawsuit details at the show, “Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers, catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas. Lizzo then turned her attention to Ms. Davis and began pressuring Ms. Davis to touch the breasts of one of the nude women performing at the club.”
Representatives for Lizzo and Shirlene Quigley, the captain of Lizzo’s dance team (named in the lawsuit as a co-defendant), have not provided public statements on the allegations.
