As soon as you get your record deal, delete your pre-fame tweets. That’s a lesson that Tinashe and Sam Smith learned the hard way in 2014. The latest artist to come under fire for ancient online commentary is rising alt-R&B diva SZA. She should be bragging about her songwriting credit on Nicki Minaj and Beyonce‘s Pinkprint duet “Feelin’ Myself,” instead her mentions are a war zone after old tweets dragging those collaborators (as well as Rihanna and Ciara) went viral.

“Neither Rihanna or Ciara can hold a note worth a damn… ones just worse than the other. So wats the beef?!?” she pondered way back in 2011. SZA had even harsher words for Queen Bey, declaring: “Beyonce lookin more and more like Madonna every day! Coulda swore she was black at one point…” Oh, and she also endorsed Iggy Azalea at Onika’s expense. “Nicki got a problem commin up FAST,” the 24-year-old wrote before linking to one of the Australian femcee’s early demos. See those tweets and her (sort of) apology after the jump.
