Normani Seems To Clap Back At Published Quotes In Cosmo Cover Story

Normani Cosmopolitan Clap Back

RCA Records

Superstar Normani had a solo feature for Cosmopolitan and her fans were excited to see what she said about her time in Fifth Harmony when the girl group was making music and being Black in the pop music industry. Soon after the magazine dropped, a fan “dropped some coin” for the physical magazine and quickly published quotes from Normani on his Twitter.

Among the quotes were, “I told the director, ‘I want this to be as black as possible’ … I was like let’s show black culture. Why does pop music have to be so white? Why don’t we make it a little bit more me?” and, “I’m gonna make whatever I do black. You’ll know that I’m a black girl, even if it’s on the quote unquote whitest record ever.” Many couldn’t decide whether she was shading Fifth Harmony with the ~whitest record ever~ thing, talking about her upcoming album that’s set to debut in 2020, her label, or saying that, in general, even if she was on a very white record, it would be Black because that’s a part of who she is. Some also erroneously misinterpreted that to mean she wanted “everything to be about black people.” The quote quickly went viral and once Cosmo‘s story went live on the site, Normani ominously tweeted, “why the f*ck would I say that.”

The former Fifth Harmony star followed it up with, “I would never.”

When her stans flooded the replies with comments like, “me not knowing tf ur talking about but getting ready to slay locals slandering u regardless,” and “everybody’s confused explain,” many pointed to the published quotes that @ChrisMcPhersn had written and accused him of lying. However, if you go to the Cosmo story, authored by Clover Hope, these allegedly and questionably inaccurate quotes are clearly not on him.

We just hope Normani herself can a) confirm wtf she’s talking about and b) confirm wtf the real quote was supposed to say before we all truly spend the rest of the day sleuthing on Twitter.
