Then, Twitter’s undeniably hilarious creative streak kicked in and folks started mocking Swift’s new good-girl-gone-bad image that seemed to borrow heavily from Queen Bey.
Bey’s “Lemonade” Instantly Got Folks Talking:
- Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Inspires Course On Black Feminism by University of Texas Professor
- Azealia Banks Flip Flops On Critique of Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ Album: Goes From ‘Amazing’ to ‘She’s a Thief’
- Serena Williams’ Appearance In Beyonce’s Visual Album ‘Lemonade’ Sets Tongues Wagging
