Miguel Apologizes to Lloyd Over Imitation Comments
Feuding crooners Miguel and Lloyd met face to face at Cleveland’s Z107.9 Summer Jam over the weekend, where Lloyd, 25, confronted the younger singer about a recent tweet he made, accusing the ‘King of Hearts’ creator of imitating his hairstyle.
Miguel, 24, posted the inflammatory tweet, which read, “Imitation is the Highest form of Flattery. Shout to LLoyd,” last week, but attempted to defuse the situation by bursting into Lloyd’s dressing room in Cleveland, singing the ‘Wayans Bros.’ theme song, “We’re brothers, we’re happy and we’re singing and we’re colored.”
Lloyd did not appear amused by Miguel’s antics, however, immediately confronting him about the tweet. “Why would you even say that though?” he is heard asking, in a recording Z107.9 made of the heated exchange.
“Yo, it shouldn’t have been said, as honest as I may have been. If it was like me and you having a conversation, and I said it to you, it would have been different,” Miguel apologized. “The fact that I said it on Twitter was f—ed up and I apologize for that.”
Lloyd countered by calling the tweet “cheap” and “distasteful.”
“The fact is that I was not trying to imitate you,” he said. “I just felt like it was disrespectful. On some real s—, it was cheap and I felt like it was distasteful. The idea behind it wasn’t to mock you or imitate you, it was just to shave my [hair] so I could get a tattoo. For you to say that and bring all that kind of energy to me… It’s album release week so why am I answering questions about Miguel, when I should be talking about my album that I worked two years for?”
The confrontation, which appears to have concluded on a positive note, was recorded in full by Z107.9, and can be heard here.
