Rihanna tops charts and talks ‘feud’ with Beyoncé
(CNN) — Rihanna is putting in “Work, work, work, work work.”
The singer’s “Anti” album has returned to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, and she’s speaking out on rumors that she has an ongoing feud with fellow superstar Beyoncé.
Nonsense, Rihanna told Vogue.
“Here’s the deal,” Rihanna said. “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.”
The singer, who graces the cover of the magazine’s April issue, said she is very much bored with music’s pop formula. With her new album, “I just gravitated toward the songs that were honest to where I’m at right now,” she said.
The strategy appears to be working, as Billboard reports that “Anti” is Rihanna’s second No. 1 album and the first to spend more than a week at No. 1.
Rihanna is currently on tour to support the album, and a fan recently shocked her with his vocal skills.
The singer extended her mic to Terah Stewart at her concert in Cincinnati on Saturday and got quite the surprise when he perfectly sang a bit of her song “FourFiveSeconds.” She responded, “Oh, s**t.”
Stewart, a long time fan of the singer’s, tweeted after the performance, “Seriously @rihanna, I love you. Endlessly.”
