Rihanna opens up about her rumoured rivalry with Beyoncé
The R&B singer sets the record straight about her relationship with Queen B.
She’s one of the best-selling R&B artists of all-time but according to the media, a dark cloud in the form of Beyoncé has been a constant pain in Rihanna’s growing career.
Reports of the pairs supposed feud first began when Rihanna signed onto Roc Nation, a management company owned by successful rap artist, and Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z. After her debut album Music of The Sun(2005)and follow-up Girl Like Me(2006) catapulted Rihanna to fame, rumours that Rihanna had come between the power couple began to swirl.
With both female artists on the same trail of success and the ongoing working relationship between Jay-Z and Rihanna sparking controversy, it’s unsurprising that the rumour mill has called out a bitter rivalry between the pair. However, in a recent interview withVogue, Rihanna revealed there’s absolutely no truth to the rumours.
“Here's the deal,” the 28-year-old begins. “[People] 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.”
Beyoncé, 34, recently added fuel to speculation when her latest single Formation was coincidentally released shortly after Rihanna dropped her latest album Anti.
However, the multiple Grammy-award winning artist dismisses any claims that she’s trying to one-up Queen B and insists she is an artist in her own right.
“I can only do me,” she says. “And, nobody else is going to be able to do that."
