The-Dream Won’t Work With Keyshia Cole After She Dissed Beyonce
Cole's apparent ill will stems from a curious interpretation of the lyrics to Beyonce's new single 'Bow Down,' which includes the line "Bow down, b----es" -- and which Cole sees as a reversal of Beyonce's earlier message that "women need to stick together."
The-Dream, for one, isn't feeling it. Asked to weigh in during a recent chat with the Huffington Post, he responded, "Especially from musicians, to musicians, it's like we know our struggles already and we just literally keep throwing darts at each other. I don't really understand it. But you know, she's entitled to her opinion, whatever it is that she feels. I have nothing but love for Keyshia -- I worked on her last album and we went on a tour maybe two or three years ago. But, of course, you know, I can't support it."
Asked if he'd work with Cole again, he made it clear that unless something changes, she's off his client list. "Of course I would work with her if it came up, but I can't work with her under what's going on," he explained. "I just can't. If it is what they're saying that it is, if it's a personal type of attack, like no. I would hope that B would do the same for me also. I'm just not built that way."
As for Cole? She issued the Twitter equivalent of brushing the dirt off her shoulder, telling followers that "Dream not writing any songs for me is fine... Im on my 6th album... He's only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which i did love, God Bless."
