Did You Miss It? R&B Legends Anita Baker & Cheryl Lynn Beef On Twitter *Updated*

Published: Thursday 28th May 2015 by Rashad

‘Got To Be Real’ singer Cheryl Lynn kept it all the way real on Twitter late last night when she popped off on fellow Grammy winning R&B legend Anita Baker.

The songstress wasn’t completely clear on what ignited her tweeting fury, but whatever it was, it landed her on Miss Baker’s “blocked list” real quick.

Sending approximately zero percent sweet love the way of our girl Mama Anita, see Lynn’s lengthy Twitter tongue lashing below #ICYMI:

    Everybody in the industry knows Anita Baker has a TERRIBLE attitude. She is an extremely jealous woman which is why she has refused to work with Toni Braxton all this time. She’s still upset about Toni taking “Love Shoulda Brought You Home” from her and scoring a HUGE hit. Anita was the Keyshia Cole of the 80’s.

      All true, except that last part. Anita had a bit more of a successful career than Keyshia Cole. She even hosted the American Music Awards a few times.

      • MUSICHEAD May 28, 2015

        Not career-wise. Attitude-wise. Anita is far more respected for her artistry.

    • King z May 28, 2015

      You may want to revisit your facts boo. Toni credits anita for GIVING her that song. Toni didn’t take it. Anita passed on it due to her own hectic schedule at the time.

      Baby face gave it to toni…who was fashioned as a hipper version of anita at the time. To this day toni still says anita is her favorite singer and mentor – anita even suggested she NOT retire when she was considering (I have receipts if u need them)

      • NoHateNoShade May 28, 2015

        Right I’m like what?!?.. That is not true. That’s how you know some ppl just be typing BS. I have the Toni Braxton DVD an de does credit Anita Baker for really giving her big break. They originally wanted Anita for the song but she was pregnant and taking time off so she told them they should just let the girl singing it on the demo sing it which was Toni. So yes that is so not true.

      Chile keyshia cole tho???
      Love her but Anita was more respected
      And I can’t picture her singing LSBYH

    • Kelendria May 28, 2015

      I hate how people hate on Keyshia, but be playing her music to the heavens when they get they heart broke

    • moi May 28, 2015

      No you didnt just compare Anita to keyshia cole…no u didnt ! Have you ever heard Anita sing live? Clearly not! Anita is an amazing singer who could not compete with singers such as Toni because she couldnt and wouldnt go the s*** route. But SHE CAN SANG!!! and Cheryl Lynn as well.

    Now they should know that they are too damn old to be doing “twitter beefs”. Twitter beefs are pathetic when young stars get into them.

        I wish my grandma would…lol

      • Toohotfortv May 28, 2015

        But how is it a beef if Anita hasn’t said anything?

  4. MISHKA May 28, 2015

    Grandmas please behave…

    I hope This isn’t gonna be our faves in 30 years still throwing shade on Twitter

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) May 28, 2015

      LMAO! I know that’s right! Not a good look.

      This Cheryl woman seems to be thirsty for Anita to take part in her childish antics.

      I’m glad Auntie Anita, have her the hand, and blocked her ass..

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) May 28, 2015


  7. Bitchpleaseeeeeeeee! May 28, 2015

    Anita obviously doesn’t want to talk to you. Just keep it moving girl……

  8. Antonio May 28, 2015

    What makes Cheryl think Anita is threatened by her, girl had Aretha, Patti and Gladys all pressed in the 80s and she has the nerve to talk about check her catalog, gurl, your only hit is Got to Be Real. Anita has sold over 40 million records worldwide not to mention she won 8 Grammys and has influenced Mary, Toni, Jazmine, Kelly Price, Kim Burrell, Brandy, Keyshia, Mariah and Jill Scott girl bye

  9. RoyalKev May 28, 2015
