So listen, I’m not sure if you know, but I’m here to inform you that whoever you fave is, she doesn’t have the range.

Don’t take my word for it. These are just simple facts, at least according to Shirley Bassey. A sketch from a 2001 episode of the British comedy show, Rock Profile, has recently gone viral.

The spoof features Bassey (portrayed by Matt Lucas) hilariously claiming that while many stars such as Tina Turner, Gladys Knight, Sheryl Crow, and Paul McCartney are successful, they simply “don’t have the rage.” Bassey at one point even remarks that she herself doesn’t even have the range: “I don’t care, I don’t have the range.”

The comment has since been used to give a backhanded compliment (i.e. throw shade) when comparing pop stars. However, a self proclaimed Beyoncé stan took social media by storm with an epic thread calling out some of today’s biggest chart-toppers while comparing them to Queen Bey and other vocal legends who do, indeed, have the range.

Did your fave make the list? You mad? Calm down, though some most all of these shady comments are low-key accurate, depending on who ask, it’s all done in fun. But for the stans who don’t have take to Twitter to defend their fave, you can sit back and enjoy the second part of the thread.

I guess the lesson that we’ve all learned is that our favorite singer probably doesn’t have the range. It’s not gonna stop up us from stanning and debating the haters though!

Have yourself a good laugh with the full 9-minute “she doesn’t have the range” sketch below.
