Normani Had This Response to Beyoncé Comparison

It looks like Normani isn’t here for the Beyoncé comparisons! When the singer caught wind of a comment about her Lollapalooza set that mentioned Queen B, she matter-of-factly shut the criticism down.

“Every time I see Normani perform I feel like she hasn’t graduated Beyoncé school yet,” the New York Times’ Sandra E. Garcia tweeted, remarking on a video of Normani mid-performance.

Normani’s retort? The former Fifth Harmony member simply wrote, “then don’t watch.”

Normani has addressed the Beyoncé comparisons in the past, telling Fader in 2018, “It’s flattering but I definitely have room to grow and improve. I want to work for my spot. It’s not fair that I’m the next Beyoncé just yet. But I hope to become that.”

Beyoncé appears to be a fan of Normani and the two artists met last year. According to Normani, she and Bey had a casual convo despite some fangirling over the occasion on her end. Normani recalled, “I was like ever since I was a little girl, I've looked up to you. Especially me being an African American female in the entertainment industry. You make me feel like I can do absolutely anything and she was like 'I'm so proud of you, I'm so proud of you.’”
