Piers Morgan Responds To Jamelia, Over Beyoncé ‘Lemonade’ Album Row

'Saying I can't have an opinion because I'm a middle-aged British white man is a tad racist, no?'

Piers Morgan has hit back at Jamelia, after she posted a blog post addressing his controversial comments about Beyoncé’s new album ‘Lemonade’.

Piers' MailOnline column on the surprise release raised eyebrows, with many - including Jamelia - unhappy with the fact he said he preferred Beyoncé when she was “less inflammatory" and "agitating", adding that he feels she’s “played the race card” on her latest visual album.

Jamelia was quick to put Piers in his place, in a blog posted on The Huffington Post UK.

“As a black woman, I am deeply offended by your lack of due care when writing this article,” she wrote. “But I would like to take this opportunity to help you out, and assist you in making the whole 'Lemonade thing' a little less bitter for you.

"You are a middle aged, British white man, you have no idea, I repeat, NO. IDEA.

“What it is like to be a Black Woman, and furthermore, the sacrificial, struggle-filled, tongue, mask-wearing fight it is to become a successful one.”

Piers has now - yes, you guessed it - hit back via Twitter, directly responding to Jamelia and a number of other critics, and even suggesting that she was being racist:

Despite Piers’ disdain towards ‘Lemonade’, fans around the globe have been glued to their screens since the hour-long visual album was made available online.

One person who is loving 'Lemonade' is James Corden, who was even inspired to create his own masterpiece based on Bey's work.
