The ANTI singer, who received eight nods, appears to have ‘liked’ an Instagram post taking shots at Beyonce’s nominations.

"Congrats and all to @badgalriri and all for her 8 Grammy nods," the user writes.

"But tbh [expletive] [the Academy] because they snubbed her for Song of the Year and Album of the Year. I think they didn't want her tied or passing someone else *cough cough* [Lemon Emoji].

The caption implies that Rihanna lost out on the nomination because The Grammys didn’t’ want Beyonce to lose.
