Singer/songwriter SZA is very unhappy with the way her latest Rolling Stone magazine cover story turned out.
The singer appears on "The Takeover" issue of Rolling Stone alongside rapper Megan Thee Stallion and singer Normani. But on Twitter, SZA suggested the cover didn't reflect her high morals.
"Not doing any videos Interviews or photos for the rest of my life lol don't ask," she tweeted angrily on Thursday.
Fans speculated that the sexualized Rolling Stone cover, with its dominatrix overtones, led to her tweet.
SZA added: "S/o Normani and meg tho . My sisters who I love very much and respect deeply . Honored to be apart of ANYTHING w the two of those BLACK QUEENS."
In response to a fan who replied with a picture of the cover, SZA wrote: "If u care about me delete this."
The cover was shot by photographer Campbell Addy.
Megan Thee Stallion celebrated the New Year at a pajama party thrown by power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles-Carter.
A photo the rapper posted of Beyonce and her 7-year-old daughter sparked Black Twitter's first dragging of 2020.
The drama began when Vanity Fair writer K. Austin Collins, who is Black, cracked a joke about Blue Ivy's looks.
Then Harper's Bazaar magazine writer Violet Lucca compared the child to socialite Kylie Jenner, who underwent extensive facial surgery as a teenager.
Author and woman's rights activist Mikki Kendall took offense at the senseless attack on a child and went IN on both journalists.
Lucca, who is white, offered a half-hearted apology, saying she was busy cleaning her apartment when Black Twitter came for her.
Kendall responded by reminding Lucca that journalists should remain unbiased, and that what she wrote "was rooted in racist narratives about Black girls & their features..."
Collins also apologized, calling his tweet a "bad joke."
Question: What do you think? Should the journalists' comments be protected speech?
