Keyshia Cole was less than impressed with the Destiny’s Child reunion during Super Bowl XLVII. The outspoken R&B singer, 31, shared her candid — and cruel — commentary with her 217,577 Twitter followers in a series of posts Feb. 4.
Beyonce Knowles, 31, Kelly Rowland, 31, and Michelle Williams, 32, performed “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part 1” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” during the Mercedes-Benz halftime show; celebrities including Kelly Clarkson, Jimmy Fallon, Sophia Bush and Chris Colfer praised the medley via Twitter.
“F-ck that shit up then Beyonce! Bad bitch central,” Cole wrote of the headliner, who also performed a selection of her solo hits. “I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f-cking the groove up.”
After Destiny’s Child fans targeted Cole’s Twitter account in defense of the popular girl group, the “Love” singer offered a half-hearted apology. “But hey! I love y’all too!” she tweeted. “And y’all girl is whack and always will be!”
Despite Cole’s harsh criticism, Williams was pleased with her performance. “Had a great time with my sisters tonight! Tried to keep it a surprise!” tweeted the singer, who replaced original Destiny’s Child members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson when she joined the group in 2000. “Love you all. God bless!”
Knowles, too, was thrilled with how everything turned out. “It feels good to know the hard work paid off. It’s a live television show. It’s the biggest show in America,” Jay-Z ‘s wife told OMG! Insider following her performance. “There’s so many things that could happen and God was on my side, so I’m very, very happy that it went well and the power went out after.”
