Today Sheezus herself, aka Lily Allentweeted a photo of a bouquet of roses. With them was a note that read, "AT THE END OF THE DAY LILY... I’m still a major fan of your’s. (Truce?) - Questlove." And thus ends the great Sheezus-Questo Feud of 2014... a beef you probably didn't even know existed.  

Well, here's how it started. Last month Allen performed at London's famed G-A-Y venue, causing quite the controversy when she reenacted Beyonce's "Drunk in Love" video, lip-syncing the hit single. 

Many people on the internet read it as a mockery, forcing Sheezus to defend herself on Twitter: "Only one person can tell you what my intentions are, and that would be me," followed by, "Each time I play GAY I do a cover in drag. 1st time I did Dorothy, last time Britney, thus tone Queen Bey. Why do people jump to conclusions?" Allen concluded her defense with, "I wasn't mocking Beyoncé, like I wasn't dissing anyone on #SHEEZUS, this is so f**king boring." 

Apparently this rubbed Questlove the wrong way, who tweeted then deleted, "So Lily Allen is our cultural critic now? She'll soon be op-ed'ing for @EBONYMag no?" Allen, never one to keep quiet, responded, "@questlove @EBONYMag I think you're being unfair. I love her and I love my fans who loved this performance, I wasn't critiquing, at all."

Which brings us to the beginning. Questlove apologized, all is well. Now we can go back to discussing SolangeGate 2014.
