Iconic singer Dionne Warwick had some choice words for Wendy Williams after the talk show host criticized her for her recent tweets and brought up an old marijuana charge.


Legendary songstress Dionne Warwick hit back at talk show host Wendy Williams after the latter made negative remarks about her recent tweets.

Williams, known for her no-holds-barred commentaries, said that while Warwick had been a guest on her show, she felt that the 79-year-old singer does not like her.

The controversial host poked fun at the "I Say a Little Prayer" hitmaker's tweets teasing The Weeknd, and then talked about Warwick's marijuana charges in 2002, which the singer had denied.

But the 79-year-old singer will not take uncalled-for criticisms sitting down. She took to Twitter where she has more than 155,000 followers to respond to Williams. She wrote:


"I don't believe one has to be mean to get noticed."


She said that there was no need for the host to mention her name for any reason. She also noted Williams' track record of malicious comments.

The "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" singer did not stop there. She also pointed out an old saying, "you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."

"Try it Wendy you might like it," the iconic singer wrote, adding a clown emoji and a smiling emoji. Thousands of Twitter users have reacted to Warwick's posts.


The heated exchange came on the heels of friendly banter between Warwick and younger hitmakers Chance the Rapper and The Weeknd. She made hilarious comments on both singers' stage names.

The five-time Grammy winner also shared what she thinks about the music of today's popular singers, saying that it is for much younger ears.

She has not allowed her age to slow her down as she continues to make music for her fans.



Some fans doubted it was indeed the singer behind the witty tweets. But the R&B icon confirmed that she has always been the one writing the tweets on her account.

She added that she is getting very good at using Twitter. The singer also shared that it was her niece Britanny who taught her how to use the popular micro-blogging site.

At 79, Warwick continues to be a relevant pop culture icon. She has not allowed her age to slow her down as she continues to make music for her fans.

The multi-awarded R&B hitmaker released two albums in 2019 and also began a coveted Vegas residency. She was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys.
