Lily Allen thinks Jay Z's new streaming service will "set emerging artists back".

Throwing shade at Beyonce is a fairly reliable way of making enemies. Remember Keri Hilson? You know, she had that one big hit with Kanye West? Still nothing? Well, she effectively ended her own career by dragging Queen Bey on a diss track. Rising diva Ryn Weaver came perilously close to repeating that mistake on Twitter last night (April 1) when she appeared to make a jab about songwriting credits. (See the exchange below).

The “OctaHate” hitmaker promptly deleted the tweet and clarified that she was just asking a question. The 22-year-old then affirmed her love for all things Beyonce. “I never shaded her, she’s the queen,” Ryn tweeted one fan. “I love Beyonce and I love u. Sorry u feel that way,” she tweeted another. Unfortunately, it was too late and The Hive soon wreaked havoc in her mentions. Oh well, lesson learned. See her tweet and the fiery responses below.
