Beyonce fans react to Diane Warren seemingly shading the singer for using 24 songwriters

While Beyonce’s legions of fans have been enjoying her new album Renaissance – her first album since 2016’s Lemonade – some have been defending her from some supposed shade thrown her way by Oscar-nominated songwriter Diane Warren.

The 65-year-old Warren took to Twitter on Monday, asking, ‘How can there be 24 writers on a song?’ with a rolling eyes emoji.

The tweet – seemingly in reference to Beyonce’s song Alien Superstar – was not met well by the BeyHive, with fans bashing her for everything from her age to not knowing how samples work.

Her tweet – sent early Monday morning – seemingly blew up instantly, angering fans who thought she was sending some shade Beyonce’s way.

Warren tried to alleviate that notion by tweeting out 15 minutes later, ‘This isn’t meant as shade, I’m just curious.’

Another 20 minutes or so later she seemed to have figured it out, tweeting out, ‘Ok, it’s prob samples that add up the ammount of writerrs.’

That still didn’t stop a number of fans from chiming in, including Twitter user Lisa McGuire, who said, ‘samples and multiple interpolations! I’m a music supervisor and have the clear them sometimes.’

Another Twitter user named Dylan asked, ‘How you’ve been in the game for 80 years and don’t know how samples work?’ Warren responded, ‘Coz I don’t use them.’

Twitter user TaylorBold added, ‘Same way you have 13 nominations and no wins,’ along with a photo of her 13 Oscar nominations.

That started a brief exchange, where Warren joked, ‘But I have 13 more nominations than U’ while another fan, J, added, ‘Exactly, nominations. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.’

Warren asked, ‘How many U got?’ as J responded, ‘Same wins as you, xoxo.’

Another recording artist, The-Dream, explained, ‘You mean how’s does our (Black) culture have so many writers, well it started because we couldn’t afford certain things starting out, So we started sampling and it became an Artform, a major part of the Black Culture (hip hop) in America. Had that era not happen who knows. U good?’

Warren responded, ‘I didn’t mean that as an attack or as disrespect. I didn’t know this, thank U for making me aware of it. No need to be mean about it.’

She also sent out a number of other tweets including one where she called a Twitter user a c**t for calling her a ‘grandma’ and another where she sent a middle finger emoji to someone who said she’s 65, adding, ‘Cool U can count. How many fingers am I holding up’

Warren seemingly conceded her argument hours later, tweeting out, ‘Ok, I meant no disrespect to @beyonce, who I’ve worked with and admire. I’m sorry for the misunderstanding.’

Beyonce herself has yet to respond publicly to any of the tweets as of now.
