Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Rihanna has finally addressed the reports that she and Beyonce have a feud in her latest interview with Vogue magazine.
The Barbadian singer covered the latest issue of the magazine and she has finally talked about the rumored conflict she has with the “Irreplaceable” singer. The reports that the two are not in good terms comes after 34-year-old Beyonce released her “Formation” video just before 28-year-old Rihanna released her “Anti” album. The fans then pitted the two women against each other claiming that the two are feuding thus Beyonce’s surprise release. The recently released album of Rihanna is the first since 2012.
Other reports are claiming that Rihanna’s released of “Bitch Better Have My Money” on March 2015 was all about Beyonce so the “Bonnie & Clyde” singer took the chance to steal the “45 Seconds” singer’s thunder when she was about to release her new album.
Rihanna then shared with the magazine, “Here’s the deal. They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”
Despite Rihanna’s claims that there is no feud between her and Beyonce, she did like a tweet of one of her fans in an attempt to throw shade at Beyonce. The tweet reads: “The fact that ‘Desperado‘ is HIGHER on the Bubbling Under chart than a single performed to a global audience,” which featured a photo of Jay Z showing his hands clasped in front of his face in shock. The song “Desperado” is a song featured on Rihanna’s “Anti” album and the “global audience” song in the tweet is said to have referred to Beyonce’s “Formation.”
Rihanna also talked about her fashion line, the Fenty x Puma, and she shared that her inspiration for the unisex designs comes from her brothers Rorrey , Rajad , and Jamie. She shared that women feel empowered if they can do things that are meant only for men. She added, “It breaks boundaries, it’s liberating and it’s empowering when you feel like, Well, I can do that too.”
