Uh oh! Looks like bad girl Riri’s breaking dishes, except it seems like her opponent on the other side of the ring isn’t backing down.
Other than Beyoncé, Rihanna has her foot in mainstream royalty. However, unlike Beyoncé, Rihanna doesn’t seem to have a problem flaunting her popularity at those who aren’t raking in the amount of cash she is.
Kanye West’s newly signed artist Teyana Taylor found herself as the butt of Rihanna’s jokes when Rihanna posted a parody of Taylor’s InstaGram video in which she sings Anita Baker’s “Caught In the Rapture.” Rihanna’s version was less subtle when it came to mocking it, opting instead to use one of her male friends in curls and a snapback.
Taylor was quick to fire a missile at Rihanna Navy on Twitter: “Don’t play wit me @rihanna fuck all this industry shit, YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? U got my #, don’t show off.”
After a quick verbal back-and-forth with a friend of Rihanna’s, the Barbados singer swept her shoulders: “I REFUSE to help your career…you will NOT get an @ from me! Not til you pay me! #nomorefreepromo #iRefuse”
When push comes to shove, you better believe both girls went from straight up shade with both women posting up new headers, directly attacking each other where it hurts.
Both chicks have, since then, removed their headers.
Unfortunately, as much as I love RiRi, there’s no denying that she instigated the fight… much like the one she started with R&B superstar Ciara back when she was launching her new album. It doesn’t seem like Teyana is the type of person to back down, seeing as though she’s fired multiple tweets at the Right Now singer. Perhaps the fame and bad girl reputation is getting to her head?
Who knows? The point of the matter is this, Rihanna doesn’t seem to like new competition!
One thing is for sure though, Taylor’s unloading some heavy ammunition that’s making Rihanna headquarters cringe. There’s even talks of a lawsuit! Let’s take for example this tweet which was in response to when Rihanna posted a picture of Taylor’s net worth compared to Rihanna’s massive $90 million price tag: “Ya net worth & ya body count go neck to neck #IndustryPussy”
Well, boys and girls? Whose side are you on?Kanye West, Rihanna, Teyana Taylor, Twitter
