Swizz Beatz clarified controversial comments he made about Janet Jackson not being a good match for Missy Elliott.
Speaking on potential matchups for future lip sync battles on Verzuz, Swizz told music producer Timbaland, 48, that he didn't think Janet and Missy would be a good matchup.
Swizz, 42, began trending on Black Twitter for insulting Ms. Jackson. After the backlash, Swizz took to Instagram blog The Shaderoom to explain that he didn't think the good fit was 49-year-old Missy Elliott, whose name should not be spoken in the same breath as 54-year-old Janet.
"LETS BE CLEAR. I don't think Missy & Janet is a good match up at all! Much love to Janet she's ICON but I just didn't feel that was a good match up. Janet got hits on hits but she should have a better person to celebrate with that's all. Blessings...."
