What happens when you let your Aunties get on social media? They forget how to act. Singer Cheryl Lynn, known for her 1978 classic, “Got To Be Real” is not too happy with Anita Baker after she found out Mother Anita blocked her on Twitter. Oh, the shade!
“Really girl, I thought we were cool. I guess I should’ve known something was up when you ignored me,” tweeted Cheryl Lynn after finding out Anita blocked her on Twitter, “What did I ever do to you? Oh, I get it probably cuz I will sing you down on the stage is that it?” Oh but that wasn’t all the reading Miss Lynn did, no ma’am! She kept the shade coming! “I’ve been nothing but sweet to you, and I get blocked. I thought we were good. Its crazy how your truly colors came out. We’re too OLD to be petty, just call me and we can settle this like adults. Ppl look up to us. We’re OG’S in this biz.”
Cheryl Lynn says it’s bigger than Twitter and that Anita has been acting pretty funny offline too. “To have someone say their your friend and then to one day call them and not have them call you or hate on you for no reason is SAD. We’ve been friends since 1980 before you had an album out, and we were always sweet to one another I wonder what changed. Voice maybe?”
Anita never tweet Cheryl Lynn back, but she did respond. “They love 2 call ur name/stand in ur light…& its not even ur light. Call HIS name…the light is HIS & there’s enough for ALL #Namaste“
This reminds me so much of the Youtube series, “To Be Real.” Those divas stayed throwing shade.
