It all started when Rihanna liked the picture below.
Getting our facts straight, we know that Beyonce got herself some good nine nominations for the Grammys while Riri scored eight nominations which is pretty good for both of these female stars but apparently, people claim that Rihanna ‘caught feelings’ over the one less nomination.
One Instagram user was not satisfied with the “Work” singer’s eight Grammy nominations and alluded to Beyonce in a post lamenting that Rihanna had been snubbed. Rihanna’s latest project, ANTI, was left out of the competition for album of the year and her hit track, “Work,” was not among the contenders for song of the year.
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!”
Beyoncé’s nine nominations have made the singer the most nominated female artist in Grammy history but either way, we’re definitely celebrating both artists’ incredible year with the release of their albums Anti and Lemonade.
