The 31-year-old R&B singer took her first shot at Destiny's Child member Michelle, tweeting, "I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f---N the groove up," followed by, "F--k that shit up then Beyonce! Bad b-tch central #AllGirlEverything."
Later, referencing Beyoncé's parental support, Ms. Cole posted, "And yes my mom uses drugs yes it's hard. Yes I'm from Oakland and made it damn far without influential biological parents!"
After quite a bit of outcry from the Twitterverse, she later backpedaled a bit, saying, "But hey! I love y'all too! And y'all girl is WACK and always will be! #Boss!!"
Meanwhile, Beyoncé herself praised her stage-sharers, posting on her Tumblr, "What a proud day for African American women!!!! Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, JHud, You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies."
