Taylor Swift won't get any girl support from Rihanna — and she isn't hiding why

Rihanna knows one thing.

And that's that she doesn't belong in Taylor Swift's famous girl squad.

RiRi, a self-proclaimed bad girl, sat down with NME magazine and, during the interview, she explained why she won't be making a guest appearance onstage with Swift anytime soon.

"I don't think I would. I just don't think that makes sense," Rihanna explained of joining Swift onstage for her 1989 tour like so many other celebs, including St. Vincent, Beck, The Weeknd, Little Mix, Wiz Khalifa, Alanis Morissette and Avril Lavigne, have done.

She continued, "I don't think our brands are the same; I don't think they match. I don't think our audiences are the same."

But Rihanna made it clear she's not trying to throw shade — in fact, she had some sweet words for the 1989 singer.

"In my mind, she's a role model, I'm not," she said.

At least there's no "Bad Blood" between these two.

Rihanna continued on to share a quick update on her highly anticipated, in-progress eighth album, R8.

"It's not done!" she said. "To me, it's never done until it's done. Until the final moment."

Rihanna's fans have been waiting years for the album and she knows they're getting impatient.

"No matter what I post online, within three comments there's somebody saying, 'Where is R8?'" she said. "I could post anything. Nothing else matters. They don't care about anything but that. But it makes me excited, because I can't wait to give them something great."
