Is there a rivalry between Rihanna and Beyoncé? When Vogue asked Rihanna about Bey releasing “Formation” shortly after Anti dropped, the “Work” singer didn’t confirm feud rumors, but she didn’t quite deny them either.
“Here’s the deal,” Rihanna told the magazine. “They 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. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”
Preach, girl! Nobody is you and that is your power.
Rihanna also opened up to the magazine about the controversial see-through dress she wore sans bra to the CFDA Awards in 2014.
“I just liked it better without the lines underneath. Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra? I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled,” Rihanna told Vogue. “That’s the only regret I have in my life.”
The journalist followed up, “Wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled is your greatest regret in life?
“To the CFDA Awards. Yes,” Rihanna responded.
Rihanna also dished on her new fashion line, which she described as “if the Addams family was wearing gym wear.” The inspiration behind the unisex designs came from her brothers, Rajad, Rorrey and Jamie.
“I always wanted to play the games they played and play rough and wear pants and go outside. Women feel empowered when they can do the things that are supposed to be only for men, you know?” Rihanna said. “It breaks boundaries, it’s liberating and it’s empowering when you feel like, Well, I can do that too.”
