Brandy and Monica need to get back in the studio and work their stuff out in a song! While it’s entertaining to see all the little hashtag shade-throwing and inflammatory interviews, wouldn’t it be better for everyone if they just channeled their feud into a chart-topping hit? Then we could dance it out, get tired and sweaty, then take a nap. That usually helps me when I’m feeling pissed.
But no. These two are not going to a creative place to fix their differences, unless you count Instagram captions. After Brandy more-or-less reanimated a fight that seemed long dead, Monica responded by saying she was focusing on positivity. That was until she gave an interview on The Real in which she said her relationship with Brandy is a “test from God.” Ouch.
The Shade Room captured Brandy’s response, which including comments on Insta reading, “Hey Hey Hey, #IKnowTHEREALStoryThatEverybodyDoesntKnow,” the singer’s post continued. “#NewKeyOnKeyNewMeOnMe #MissSubstance #PositivityIsTheOneThingYouShouldNotFake.”
BET.com reports that Brandy also deleted a tweet in which she wrote, “Real Recognizes Real - Real Recognizes Fake - Real Recognizes Fake Real - Real Recognizes Real Fake,” after Monica’s TV appearance.
We’ll never really know who is real, who is fake, or whether this is an orchestrated attempt to get us interested in what Monica and Brandy are even up to these days, but until I hear a duet on the radio I will not consider the issue resolved.
