Miguel and Lloyd came head to head (no pun intended) at Z107.9’s Summer Jam in Cleveland over the weekend. The “Sure Thing” singer ignited blogs when he commented about Lloyd’s new haircut. “Imitation is the Highest form of Flattery. Shout to LLoyd,” he wrote after seeing Young Goldie’s newly shaved head. But Lloyd didn’t let him off easy when they met up backstage.
Miguel burst into the dressing room singing “The Wayans Bros.” theme song (“We’re brothers, we’re happy and we’re singing and we’re colored”). Lloyd wasn’t having it and immediately asked Miguel why he sent out his controversial tweet.
“Why would you even say that though?” asked Lloyd.
Miguel replied, “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. The fact that I said it on Twitter was fu**ed up and I apologize for that.”
Lloyd explained why he was so upset. “But the fact is that I was not trying to imitate you,” he continued. “I just felt like it was disrespectful. On some real shit, 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?
Their tense backstage conversation was recorded by Z107.9 and can be heard in its entirety below.
