K. Michelle responds to Beyonce’s new music and accusations that Queen Bey is COPYING her country alter-ego

K. Michelle is refusing to be pitted against Beyoncé after fans took to social media to express concern over her mental state following news that superstar is dropping a country album.

In response to a tweet asking if ‘anyone checked on’ her amid the excitement over the 42-year-old Halo hitmaker’s upcoming record, the singer, 41, who made her  country music debut back in 2022, denied having any concerns over Beyoncé entering the genre. 

‘Why would anyone need to check on me. I’m one of the greatest African American country singers of all times with no album even out,’ she replied. 

The musician added: ‘Y’all been mentioning me ALL night. I’m just happy to be spoke about in my genre. I love Bey and will be supporting her like I always do❤️❤️.’

Michelle, whose new stage name is Puddin, released her first country song, Scooch, two years ago. 

She has been hard at work on her first country album, which is expected to be released this year. 

In November, she and Jelly Roll received rave reviews of their at the rendition of The Judds’ ‘Love Can Build A Bridge at the 57th Annual Country Music Association Awards. 

Over the weekend, Beyonce announced a new county music album during the Verizon Super Bowl ad.

Her longtime troll Azealia Banks quickly slammed the mother-of-three on Instagram as she predicted the 32-time Grammy winner of setting herself up to be ridiculed. 

‘Them critics are not just going to accept an ugly blond wig and , bullying from jay-z !!! It’s giving big time musical grift. Yes black girls can make country music… but you’re just really not hitting the button,’ Banks fired.

She added: ‘Beyoncé please stop the madness. The gay baiting, the overtly narcissistic attempts to lazily encroach into a genre *you think* your popularity is gonna gain accolades for you in… You’re looking like food sis. You will gag when k Michelle tears it.;

Back in 2018 Banks accused Beyonce of stealing her choreography, stealing from other female artists and being a ‘regular b***h’.

In response to a tweet asking if 'anyone checked on' her amid the excitement over the 42-year-old Halo hitmaker's upcoming record, the singer, 41, who made her country music debut back in 2022, denied having any concerns over Beyoncé (seen on the cover of her upcoming album) entering the genre

Azealia said in her Instagram tirade: ‘I realized that my ex dancer Ashanti choreographed for Beyoncé and stole the original choreography @gypjaq made for count contessa.’

‘Beyoncé needs to get over herself and just hire me ‘cause even though Coachella was cute…it was still more of the same.’

She went on to say ‘Beyoncé loves to push this female empowerment s**t but is just ALWAYS trying to steal from talented women and outdo them…but she really never does.’

Azealia added: ‘I really hope she gets real with herself soon and humbles herself enough to accept the visions and full projects women who admire her put together FOR HER.

‘Like we don’t need any more Beyoncé thot moments. No one needs Beyoncé doing [outfit of the days] like she’s some up and coming fashion toast b***h. I have NO CLUE why she wants to be a regular b***h.

‘It makes me sad.’

 On Sunday, Beyonce surprised fans by teasing forthcoming new music in a Verizon Super Bowl ad — for which she reportedly received a $30million payout.

The  icon — who attended the big game alongside other notable stars — moved through various personas in the minute-long commercial, attempting to ‘break the internet’ with over-the-top performances.

It comes after days earlier the phone company teased the singer’s appearance in the advert with two brief bits shared on social media.

In one clip, actor Tony Hale squeezed lemons behind a lemonade stand and said: ‘Hold up, she wants me to squeeze all these lemons by myself? This better work.’

The clue was a reference to the pop star’s 2016 surprise Lemonade visual album. 

And just like she did in eight years ago, the Grammy-winning musician blew fans away on Sunday as she dropped two new singles.

As she announced an upcoming album, a country-genre follow-up to 2022’s Renaissance, she also released two new singles in tandem.

Along with the music came breathtaking artwork, which included a very scantily clad Beyonce, who posed pantless.

In one snapshot, she put on a very busty display as she wore a silver hardware bra underneath a cropped black blazer.

The caption to her 319 million followers, she wrote, ‘TEXAS HOLD ‘EM and 16 CARRIAGES out now.’

The 16 CARRIAGES artwork was a closeup black and white image of Beyonce — full name Beyonce Knowles Carter — in a black cowboy hat.

She rocked a voluminous and wispy bob haircut underneath the headgear.

And the Houston, Texas native was clad in a black cowboy shirt with stud detailing around the collar.

Beyonce shared the full Verizon commercial online and wrote in a caption, ‘@verizon #ad.’

She followed up the post with another video outtake — one that showed her driving an old yellow taxi car through a desert.

The Texas license plate on the vehicle read, ‘HOLD ‘EM.’

The scene opened with Knowles turning the key in ignition with a red fishnet gloved hand.

The shot then switched to her stepping on the gas while wearing a white sandal that showed off a red pedicure.

Eventually a group of late-aged men dressed in country-inspired attire appeared with baffled expressions on their faces.

One slowly pointed to a billboard, where an exaggerated caricature of Beyonce was seen in red cowboy boots, lingerie, and a cowboy hat.

While lying on her side, she held up one waving hand, and in black font against a yellow background were the words ‘Texas Hold ‘Em.’

Bluesy guitar strums from the first notes of her new song played before the screen went black with ‘act ii, 3.29’ surfacing in the same white font used to promote her wildly successful Renaissance album.

The new music launch comes days after the mother-of-three teased a forthcoming haircare line.

She uploaded a video teaser that featured old footage of her mom Tina Knowles’ and herself as a kid.

Included in the montage of clips were scenes of women having their hair washed in hair salon bowls.

She wrote in the caption, ‘Hair is sacred. The journey begins Feb 20. Visit CECRED.COM.’
