    Erykah Badu Seems To Think That Beyoncé Copied Her Signature Big Hat And Fans Are A Little Confused

    "I guess I'm everybody stylist."

    Erykah Badu appears to be throwing a little bit of shade at Beyoncé — right after the Renaissance singer took the stage over the weekend in a very oversized hat.

    For one of her shows in New Jersey, Beyoncé wore a very wide-brim hat during a Renaissance tour performance and it seemingly didn't sit well with Erykah.

    Erykah took to Instagram to share her thoughts, posting a photo of Bey on stage and then comparing it to a video where she could be seen also wearing a similarly large metallic silver hat.

    "Hmm….," Erykah wrote in one story, adding, "I guess I'm everybody stylist."

    Erykah even commented on Bey's photo wearing the hat to say she was "flattered" to see her wearing a similar style.

    While it's no secret that Erykah has become known for her extra large hats, Beyoncé has also worn quite a few oversized hats in her time.

    I mean, we all remember the "Formation" music video, right??

    The idea that Beyoncé may have been copying Erykah definitely confused some fans, who came to her defense online:

    Erykah hasn't made any further comments about Bey's hat and Bey hasn't publicly responded to the seeming shade — but IMO, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
