Michelle Williams Expresses Love After Super Bowl Criticism, Keyshia Cole Responds

Michelle Williams, one-third of the R&B group Destiny's Child, is attempting to mend a rift with her fellow singer Keyshia Cole.

Williams, 33, performed at the 2013 Super Bowl with fellow singers and friends Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland. However, Cole, 31, took to her Twitter to publicly criticize Williams' performance.

Months after Cole's criticism and reports that the former Destiny's Child singer spoke about her critic's mother Frankie, Williams is denying those claims. Williams recently appeared on the Philadelphia radio station Hot 107.9 FM where she spoke on the Morning Show with Shamara and Laiya about clearing things up with Cole.

"I don't even do Twitter beef … I didn't tweet that … It didn't come from my account," Williams said on the show, concerning tweeting about Cole's mother. "I can copy and paste a tweet and make it seem like it came from your account and millions of people are re-tweeting it … I can't wait to see her [Keyshia Cole] in person so that we can talk and say 'Hey, what happened?'"

Williams admitted to being a fan of Cole's, saying that she identified with the singer's mother battling drug addiction in the past and how it impacted their family.

"I will say this, I was a major fan of hers. This is my first time even saying that," Williams said on the Philadelphia radio station. "I understood her story, was rooting for her. My (adopted) little sister was born with crack cocaine in her system, so when I see someone like Keyshia Cole, who is defying the odds, doing her thing and taking care of her family … She was somebody I was rooting for because I could understand where she was coming (from)."

While Cole has tweeted some less than kind words about her in the past, Williams said she is holding no grudges.

"But it's all good. People make mistakes," Williams said on the radio station. "I don't hold that against nobody, I wish everybody the best … I want everybody to win! People make mistakes."

Even if Cole had bad intentions for Williams, the latter expressed her love for her fellow singer.

"People say the wrong things in the heat of the moment. Sometimes you don't mean it," Williams said. "Maybe she did mean it. I don't care. I love you."

After Williams' interview, Cole took to Twitter to write a cryptic tweet that some fans thought was aimed at Williams.

"Can't stand when people say things, then act they never said like they better than everyone else," Cole tweeted. "I mean its cool tho. We can link up whnevr."

When one fan brought it to Cole's attention that Williams had nothing but positive things to say about her, the former also seemed ready to bury the hatchet.

"That's nice," Cole tweeted. "It's all G."
