Britney Spears claims to be of ‘Queen B’ status and the response is not pleasant as Beyoncé’s fans come swarming in to say who the real ‘Queen B’ has always been.
Now, this could be a joke that Britney is trying to poke at her fans saying that they call her ‘Queen B’, yes they have been calling her ‘Queen’, but the title of ‘Queen B’ is well known to be Beyoncé’s.
On an Instagram post on June 24th Britney addressed her fans saying, “To all my fans who call me Queen B….I believe this would be more accurate!!!!!” The post is a drawing of a diamond-covered golden bee –
Fans went crazy in the comments addressing what they thought of as ridiculous for Britney to claim such a status, @driyonce.21 commented saying “Imagine calling yourself Queen B when there is BEYONCÉ 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Youuu” and @simone.r.r commented, “There’s only one Queen B and that’s Beyoncé 🐝🐝🐝”
@kaanbalci01 commented saying “@beyonce is Queen Bey. Britney has always been the Princess of Pop… love her but the grown-up thrones are highly occupied.”
Of course, some fans stuck up for Britney one saying the post was in appreciation for Beyoncé, @exctatic2 commented saying, “no y’all misunderstood this BADLY. Remember Britney loves Beyoncé and often posts about her.”
Another fan @theteacherjey commented saying, “Beyoncé who? U’re the real queen.” and @culturespoon commented, “You are Queen Britney for sure, but the Queen B title is for someone else. You’re amazing.”
Though some have forgotten that Lil Kim is the original ‘Queen Bee’ addressing herself as so in her 1996 track with her fans being called her ‘Beehive’. Then Beyoncé took up the title of ‘Queen B’ or sometimes ‘Queen Bey’ with her fans called her ‘Beyhive’, which is a play on her name. This left Britney as being known as the ‘Queen/Princess of Pop’.
All women have the right to feel like queens and it seems that fighting over the title is getting too much, even if it’s one or two different letters added to make a slight change. Beyoncé, Lil Kim, Charlotte Awbery, Britney Spears, Madonna, and so many other beautiful women out there are all queens.
