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!
