Leona Lewis Slams Kanye West

Published: Tuesday 8th May 2012 by David

She’s usually known for her meek and mild manner, but this week saw Leona Lewis ‘hit out’ like she’s never done before.

Find out why she’s slamming ‘College Dropout’ Kanye West below…

In response to a lyric in the Rapper’s cut ‘Theraflu‘, Lewis tweeted:

Heard that awful Kanye W song talking about minx dragging on the floor. What an awful thing to be proud of!

I take all my love for him back!

The line she is referring to reads as following:

Can’t a young nigga get money anymore?
Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor
Can I have a bad bitch wit’out no flaws
Come to meet me wit’out no drawers?

Clearly peeved by the comment (most likely due to her work as animal rights activist) Lewis is yet to receive a response from West but did receive support from fans, some of whom tweeted:

Rafiya A. Mason ‏ @BigBlackLesbian

 Tell it!

Sam Adams ‏ @Jellotime91:

Brass balls!! Love you for being so outspoken!

Tiffany ‏ @tiffanyem92

@leonalewismusic haha yeah Kanye pretty much sucks.

Leona is currently gearing up for the release of ‘Glassheart’, her third studio LP due out this November.

So, what do you think?

Should Kanye apologize?

    She is so cute! She wasn’t even mean about it…..

  7. Tren May 8, 2012

    FYI: That K.West line came from a Lil Kim song “Two-piece bikini, Fendi mink draggin’ on the floor / Kim been the first lady since I dropped Hard Core”

  8. Jessica May 8, 2012

    @The Truth:Leona is real artist who can sing live, doesn’t have to spread her pum pum to sell records just to make a name of herself * cough cough*- Crackanna and Nicki Garbage. I’m glad that an artist is sticking up on what she believes in, Kanye has lost it since Graduation album, his music is not appealing anymore, he was way better back in 2004 with College Drop Out album and the second album.

  9. Lourdes May 8, 2012

    Goodbye Leona. -___-

  10. JJFan1814 May 8, 2012

  11. Jonah May 8, 2012

    Im still stuck on @bigblacklesbian’s handle….

  12. TIMMI May 8, 2012

    Kanye West is a d*****. I know it, Taylor Swift knows it, Pink knows it, Kelly Clarkson knows it, Kris Humphries knows it, Amber Rose knows it, George Bush knows it, Obama knows it and Leona is just another name on the never-ending list of people he pisses off with his gay fish ass.

  13. TIMMI May 8, 2012

    And for the people trying to go in on Leona. How is it that Leona is not relevant enough to have an opinion, yet you all regularly sit behind your PC screens anonymously posting your opinions?

    Even though you will never achieve in your lifetime 0.1% of what Leona has?


  14. skintightjeans May 8, 2012

    No one gives a s*** about Leona Lewis and half the population doesn’t even know who the f*** she is.

  15. mobwife May 8, 2012

    Who is this B**CH?

    Girl where are you Grammy’s? How many awards have you won for that mess you call “singing”? When you stack “plaques and doe” like Mr. West then you can speak other than that HERE YOU GO LEWIS –> _/_/_/_/ As a matter a fact you deserve a \__________/ all to yourself! 🙂

    “Yeezy taught Me”……I LOATH & DETEST biased a$$ PETA!

  16. latifa May 8, 2012

    the same heffer who threw the term album pushback to a whole notha level? any surprise folk think you boring as hell. ugh *tosses 62″ weave off shoulder*

  17. the real xoxo May 8, 2012

    leona is not a REAL artist. does she write? does she have any input into her music? she is an amazing vocalist and thats it. she came from X factor, the most contrived, manufactured programme on telly. the only true artist to come from x factor is rebecca ferguson.

  18. KAT DELUNA FAN May 8, 2012

    Yes she is right

  19. Coke May 8, 2012

    Ok so…… It’s jus music nobody cares about the mess she makes… Even tho I like that one song but she must b bored nobody cares if u or those other ppl like Kanye it’s music try n make some!

    Okaaay!!! I just KNEW that album was out already lol……but whatever…

    I guess people can’t voice their own opinions anymore without someone saying “Who is she?” people need to grow up for real.

  22. X,Y,”and Z” May 8, 2012

    @Sam, TGJ staff –

    Someone needs to send Leona Lewis some B****-KEEP-IN-LINE reminders:

    ..And this: thesun(dotcodot)uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/tv/2706042/Leona-Lewis-remains-upbeat-despite-being-attacked-by-crazed-fan.html

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

  23. Aaliyah is Queen B**** May 8, 2012

    My point exactly! No one can voice their opinion anymore. Leona Lewis is an amazing artist with a promising future. I liked Kanye but he is a complete d***** bag. So don’t worry about who she is, just know that to many people she is somebody, but WHO ARE YA’LL THO? WHAT SUBSTANCE HAVE YA’LL BROUGHT TO THE WORLD? OH OK THEN BYE!

  24. Ugh May 8, 2012

    who really cares about Leona’s opinion?

  25. KING TASHA May 8, 2012

    “Shut the f*** up when you talk to me for I embarress you”………….and who the f*** is a big,black,d*** to agree

  26. B Lamont May 8, 2012

    It’s cool to voice your opinion but the fact that she can no longer like or support Kanye is what is immature. You don’t have to agree with me for all of my actions, but disliking me over something that has no bearing on your life in anyway is a bit much. And on top of that the damn mink is basically a damn rat. Does she have the same feelings about rats and mice??? Just askin…

  27. NAYAH82 May 8, 2012

    She has every right to express her opinion…But not too long ago a report came out, saying that PETA kills 95% of the animal they rescue. Peta has a nasty way when dealing with these celebs…You don’t diss or insult people if you want them to stop doing something.

  28. NAYAH82 May 8, 2012

    Another thing, Kanye is an ass…We his fans/stans know this, but we don’t care as long as the music is good. 808 Part Two coming soon… 🙂

  29. JJFan1814 May 8, 2012

    Dumbasses always talking who’s she???where her album???

    Damn, more to the world than albums and you popping your p**** for your baby daddy.

    She’s talking about animal rights and some s*** dont fly by her. That’s her right. Same way Kanye be bitching on his Twitter about f****** hoodies.

  30. Shuh May 8, 2012

    For all you haters out there, Leona is a song-writer as well as a singer. She has writing credits on both her albums. At least like some b****** out there that steal or cheat lyrics, Leona does actually have imput in hers. -Check that out before spouting your b*******. Leona has also written for a few japanese artists. Girl can have an opinion if she wants too. Just because she isn’t some in your face b**** who grinds her ass for sales, doesn’t mean she’s any less of an artist. She may not be on Adeles level but the girl can still sell a shed load. Haters gon’ hate!

    NO REALLY, WHO IS SHE? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  32. Bey Fan May 8, 2012

    I dont care how great her voice is…. she needs to shut the hell up.

    Tired of ppl thinking just because someone has talent, they have a right to say what they want , when and to whom they want. Damn that…

    And the craziest thing of all, most rapper use metaphors and talk symbolically …Im not saying this was the case with Kanye, but how would she know. Lyrically Ye is a genius. I bet if you asked her what the song was about, she wouldn’t even know. All she know is “PETA and minx draggin on the floor”. And now her “love” for him is gone. B**** HAVE SEVERAL SEATS…..

    And if she had so much love for him, did she see him a few years back wearing a fur coat….why not lose love for him then??? And does she not know how many ppl she work with that eat meat, wear fur, go hunting???

    Just because someone doesn’t support your cause doesn’t make em a bad person.

    If these artist keep they ass off twitter, they might not have to keep pushing albums back…

  33. Bey Fan May 8, 2012

    Im all for having an opinion…. but like I’ve said over and over….celebs need to keep their opinions about other ppl of twitter.

    I mean if she really felt that way, she could have simply decided not to do any business with him. Point blank…. did she think Kanye would change the lyrics because she dislikes it?? Does she think PETA will give her some kinda honor for tweeting about her dislike of the song?

    I guess she chose to tweet it because she wanted ppl to know her opinion, so if she gets some ignorant-mean-ass tweets, her ass deserves it…

    Celebs, buy some damn journals, one for songs and one to spew your personal feelings. Use twitter as a way to speak to your fans and promote….

  34. Bey Fan May 8, 2012

    And to answer the question…



  35. Jasmine May 8, 2012

    I still think most men wearing fur coats are gay. I think she is lame though and her music is boring.

  36. ass May 8, 2012


    everything you wrote was so on point! This here is why your my favoeite of the hive. You always make sense.

  37. JJFan1814 May 8, 2012


  38. Justathought (Azealia Banks is here…) May 8, 2012

    @Mob Wife google her and find out. Who are you?? What’s your name let me put it in google and find out. *Zero matches* lol!

  39. likeCAESAR May 8, 2012

    I guess I’d have more respect for her if I didn’t just see her on the blogs with LEATHER louboutins on…F****** hypocrite…

    Theraflu is DOPE! Whatever the hell she sings…not so much.

  40. MISHKA May 8, 2012

    Kanye is losing his mojo anyway.

    Somebody show me the pattern between the pop culture soldier he was three years ago and the obnoxious H**-Man he is now.

    So irritating, uuggh.

  41. Mike May 9, 2012

    @Timmi – could not have said it any better myself. These people on here are saying she shouldn’t voice her opinion, yet they sit around in their houses all day typing theirs.

    @THE REAL XOXO – umm she does writer her own material. She wrote most of Echo and has been writing most of the new material for her upcoming album.

    @LIKECAESAR – she does not wear leather and if she does it’s fake. This is a woman who turned down over a million dollars to sing at a store opening that sold animal products.

    Educate yourselves about animal abuse and what really happens. Stop being ignorant and sticking up for Kanye just because he’s Kanye…

  42. Tbozfan10 May 9, 2012

    There are songs out tapping about people killing one another and I never heard a peep about that from her. Just sayin lol

  43. Dev May 9, 2012

    To be fair Leona does have a point but that was erased when she had a nose job and started wearing a fringe wig and unusual outfits to disguise it and when asked denied it.
    Kanye wants to wear fur, Leona wants to have surgery. Who am i to judge either

  44. Saetana May 9, 2012

    Why on earth should celebrities avoid voicing their opinions? They are people just like you and me and have a right to say what they think. I could care less one way or the other about Leona and Kanye but the principle stands – she has a right to her opinion ;o)

  45. Bobby Bulgaria May 9, 2012

    Being against Cruelty to Animals is not JUST some cause, as some may think…

    It’s being on a whole new level of morality and humanity…

    And people that are below that level simply deserve no respect…


  46. the real xoxo May 9, 2012

    whenever a celebrity tweets something it is for their own promotion in the public. why would she tweet this? publicity and contraversy. kanye is a knobhead but i dont care, i dont know him personally, i like his music.

  47. YOOSONDALOOSE May 9, 2012

    You tell him Leona!
    But that collab would have been dope.

  48. JohnVidal (RIPWhitney-true great) May 9, 2012

    Leona Lewis being a flop (as I predicted 4 years ago when people were going crazy about her and comparing her to Mariah Carey) is irrelevant in this post.
    The girl can say whatever she wants, specially when she is totally right and wasn´t tactless. I don´t care about most of rap music for a reason…

  49. JP May 9, 2012

    Leona, I’m with you boo. Have some kind of respect for nature and the environment.

    Def will be buying her album when it drops…just because of this. Kanye is anything in these streetz!

  50. prettigurlrockD May 9, 2012

    I think kanye West is good but I didn’t like that line either. I can understand where she is coming from. And why are people bringing her sales into this? She was just being open about how she felt about what he rapped about. Big deal.

    If she were to come at rihanna or beyonce and say “can we as entertainers be more graceful and not use our bodies and s** to sell music cuz thats why you all are flopping on the charts and Adele is winning” then yes that’s when you should compare careers and sales but it doesn’t matter with this topic.

    Follow me


  51. Darianna Jones May 9, 2012

    If you’re willing to completely down somebody based on them having a different opinion/belief than you, then it’s obviously not their problem. Did she actually try talking to Kanye West? I’m pretty sure they’re not BFF’s, and I’m pretty sure she was a fan throughout all of the other ridiculous things he’s said and done, but now that he’s brought up animal fur she wants to get mad!? Girl #CatchMyAlligatorMinkSnakePolarBearFoxBeaverPurse with that mess!

  52. TIMMI May 9, 2012


    Don’t write comments when you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Firstly, the mink is not “basically a rat”. You obviously don’t know what a mink is. That’s like me saying you’re like a damn jellyfish. The group of animals a mink is related to include the otter and the ferret, you idiot.

    Secondly, yes she will have the same feelings about rats and mice. If you don’t support animal cruelty, you don’t support it period. It’s not a case of fighting choosing which species of animal you care about. That’s like saying you only care about starving children from a specific town in Africa.

    Thirdly, how can Leona be expected to support Kanye’s music when his lyrics are clearly condoning messages she disagrees with?

    Think before you waste your time typing senseless paragraphs.

  53. TIMMI May 9, 2012

    @BEY FAN

    1) Where are you getting the idea that Leona is only stating her opinion because she has a talent? Everyone has opinions. Anyone can say “what they want, when they want to and to who they want”… Isn’t that called freedom of speech?

    You’re here in this post stating your opinion when, how and to who you want, yet Leona’s celebrity status means she’s not allowed one? So tell me how you earned your right to an opinion?

    2) No, Kanye’s lyric was not a metaphor. Stop reaching. Even if it was a metaphor, it was an insensitive one.

    3) No, maybe she didn’t see him wearing a fur coat. Again– stop reaching. I have a life which means I don’t have the time or concern to know what every artist has worn and I’m sure Leona stays busier than me. Perhaps you need to revaluate your own life.

    4) Yes, maybe Leona chose to tweet it so people knew her opinion. Kanye chose to put it in his song so people knew his. Your point is?
