RiRi speaks out.
The ANTI singer was spotted ‘liking’ a post on Instagram, suggesting that she had been snubbed by the Grammys in favour of Beyonce.
However Rihanna has now allegedly commented on the original post, distancing herself from any feud.
“I never actually read your caption, thought the pic was funny and moved right along! I’m petty [as f**k], yes. But this is just unnecessary!" she said.
“I wish y’all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture!”
“We don’t need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees!”
