Linda Perry SLAMS Beyoncé For Taking Credit When She Shouldn't! Watch Out, Girl, The Beygency Is Gonna Get You!

If we've learned anything from Saturday Night Live's "Beygency" sketch, it's that one should never speak ill of Beyoncé

So HOW did legendary songwriter Linda Perry not get the memo!?! Sweet mother of Beysus!

During a Reddit AMA to promote her new VH1 reality series, Make or Break, Linda was asked:

"How do you feel about Beyonce changing one word on a song and getting writing credit. Does that bother you as a songwriter?"

Laced with shade, she responded:

"well hahaha um thats not songwriting but some of these artists believe if it wasnt for them your song would never get out there so they take a cut just because they are who they are. but everyone knows the real truth even Beyonce. She is talented but in a completely different way."

Queen Bey’s been called out before for her songwriting skills – which has been rumored to consist of adding a word or two, then taking credit as both the writer and the producer.

So obviously as a songwriter, we can understand where Linda was coming from with her answer — especially since she's single-handedly created hits for some of the world's top selling artists!

We get the back and forth, but once Yoncé's loyal stans get a hold of this, Miz Perry WILL feel the unfortunate wrath!

    I eagerly await audacious comments and completely false from defenders of the black diva… One would think that Beyonce would be even above the laws, even above common sense… Had less in the head of ITS fans…

    Linda Perry can choke on her own spit. What a bitch, unless she is in the studio with Beyoncé….she can take a seat on the lame train. Poor Linda, is this the only way to get people talking…so they watch your lame ass show?

    100% spot on. If you didn't write it don't put your fucking name on it. People get sued for that bullshit, because it's just that: BULLSHIT.

    Beyonce and other performers, such as Taylor Swift, often take credit for writing things they don't because they want the money, the royalities, that are due to the songwriter who is the true artist. Don't be mistaken. These people are ACTS NOT ARTISTS. The true artists are those that compose, that play the instruments, that create. These others are circus arts. Linda Perry is a very well respected and EXTREMELY successful artist and producer. No one really cares about the supposed wrath of the self proclaimed queen of nothing, Beyonce. Beyonce is a product. A commerical product like Captain crunch cereal. It serves a purpose put it is NOT art nor is she or will she ever be an artist. Her talent lies in shaking her butt and making vulgar gestures on stage and pretending to be a lady. That sums it up. THUMBS UP Linda for speaking the truth. It's time these people stop EXPlOITING the songwriters and stealing their work and the credit for it. SHAME ON BEYONCE and all of them. She's a fake.

    Re: Mark – If Beyonce had one thousandth of the artist talent that Linda Perry has she would be lucky. Beyonce is a PERFORMER much like the clowns in the circus. Linda Perry is an ARTIST. Legalized THEFT by PERFORMERS such as Beyonce has been known about in the industry for years. Yes it is THEFT to exploit songwriters and take their royalities and creative credit for a song they didn't write. THIEVES. She's a fake. Beyonce that is. Suck it up.
