Rihanna on Beef with Beyonce: ‘Stop Putting Black Women Against Each Other’

Rihanna has had enough of the comparisons between her and Beyonce. The singer was recently accused of dissing Bey after fans noticed she liked a photo on Instagram. The photo suggested she wasn’t nominated for more awards because the academy didn’t want her topping Beyoncé’s nine nominations.

As The Shade Room pointed out, RiRi took to the comments section to shut down any perceived beef between the two artists. “I never actually read your caption, thought the pic was funny and moved right along,” she wrote in response to the speculation that she was slamming Beyoncé. “Til I seen it pop up over and over! I’m petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! 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!”

Go Ri Ri! We’re definitely here to celebrate both black women for an incredible year with the release of their albums Anti and Lemonade. Beyoncé’s nine nominations also made the singer the most nominated female artist in Grammy history.
