Rihanna Is Not Feuding With Beyoncé, It’s All About Her

Rihanna and Beyoncé. Two successful women at the top of their industry? They must hate each other. It’s in their biology. Women are meant to constantly be in competition with each other so that they can be in ideal reception of the most ideal sperm. They can’t co-exist. It’s a battle to the death.

2016 has already proven to be a big year for both black beauties. Beyoncé announced a world tour, stole the Super Bowl halftime show and dropped her latest hit, Formation,” in the same breath. Rihanna’s ANTI went platinum over night and has shown no signs of slowing in its sphere of influence. But who’s winning? Rihanna sat down with Vogue and set the record straight:

[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. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.

Here’s where having an ego the size of the Milky Way becomes a good thing. Others can’t distract you if your entire brain frequency is crowded with thoughts of your greatness. Rihanna’s been slaying. Beyoncé may be the reason ‘slay’ is in my vernacular. Further, Rihanna had one of her more feminist moments in her career:

Women feel empowered when they can do the things that are supposed to be only for men, you know? It breaks boundaries, it’s liberating, and it’s empowering when you feel like, Well, I can do that, too.

And she’s fucking doing it. Without any kind of beef. Without contributing to the tear down of any other woman in the process. I’ll smoke to that, RiRi.
