Superstar Beyoncé has received mixed notices for her new song “Bow Down/ I Be On,” but fans seem to be united on one front: the fight against Keyshia Cole.
Beyonce released the song in anticipation for her “The Mrs. Carter Show” tour, and now many of Bey’s fans are flocking to her side after it seemed singer Keyshia Cole has publicly slammed the award-winning songbird.
Cole sent out a series of tweets against Queen Bey on Monday, such as: “Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk sh-- when convenient 2 FOH.” She also wrote, “First ‘Women need to Stick together’ now bitches better Bow. Smh. But it's all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh--. .."
Most assumed she was referencing a "Bow down bitches" line from Beyoncé’s new song "Bow Down/I Been On.”

It’s not the first time Cole has riled up the BeyHive. In February she criticized Michelle Williams’ performance during the Super Bowl.
"I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michell sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f---N the groove up."
Williams indirectly responded via Facebook where she urged females to stick together. "It was an honor to share the stage with my sisters Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé on Sunday night. To all my ladies, we must learn to stick together and support each other. The incredible Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson did an amazing job too! Thank you to my sister Beyoncé for sharing your moment with Destiny's Child. Love you!"
But fellow Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland was less diplomatic an interview with Rolling Stone, saying Cole wasn’t even on her “radar.”
"It didn't even make it on my radar until other people brought it up. It didn't even matter. We had a wonderful performance, and that's all I cared about. I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that's all that counts. We matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her. So, I really don't care what she said."
