Erykah Badu quippingly accuses Beyoncé of copying her style

Neo-soul queen Erykah Badu jokingly criticised Beyoncé about her most recent tour outfit in an amusing Instagram post. The singer, 52, posted a side-by-side photo of herself wearing a wide-brim hat and Beyoncé, 41, wearing one during her Renaissance concert in New Jersey. "Hmm," Badu wrote above the picture, followed by the amusing caption, "I guess I'm everybody's stylist."

Erykah Badu and Beyoncé had a fashion face-off moment with hat styles:

While Erykah Badu made fun of Beyoncé's hat choice and caused a stir on social media, supporters defended their favourite Queen Bey right away. Reminding everyone that celebrities like Beyoncé have a team of professional stylists behind their legendary looks, one fan posted, "Reaching way too far," on Twitter. 

"Erykah of all people should know artists like Beyoncé have numerous stylists who put this stuff together," another admirer commented. Things that resemble one another or appear to be inspired rarely directly relate to the creator.

Therefore, it is obvious that both artists have their own distinctive styles that continue to inspire and enchant the world, even though the humorous fashion exchange between Erykah Badu and Beyoncé adds some lighthearted spice to the story.
