Listen up all female performers: Brandy Norwood wants you to know that she changed the game when she wore a hat and had male back-up dancers during one of her performances. So, stop trying to cop her creative genius.

Apparently, the singer was a little salty while watching Monica perform at VH1 Hip Hop Honors. Monica performed her hit “So Gone,” while paying tribute to the song’s writer and producer Missy Elliott. During her performance, she wore an all-white ensemble, complete with a hat, and utilized male dancers. Brandy then posted a throwback pic on Instagram displaying a similar aesthetic.

“#tbt #MadHatterAndBoyz Now Everybody got #HatsAndBoyz …. We stay humble and flattered by the #CatsThatCopy,” she captioned the photo.


Here is a photo of Monica at the 2016 VH1 Hip Honors for comparison.


Brandy eventually deleted her post, but some on Twitter called her out for even suggesting Monica copied her.

As much as I love her and think she is one of the greatest voices of the 90s/00s era, Brandy needs to have several seats on this one. Performing with “HatsAndBoyz” is nothing special or new. So why does she feel the need to lay claim to a something so common?

We all know what Brandy has contributed to the music and entertainment industry, but this ultra diva attitude she’s been given off these past few years gotta go!
