The Ciara and Rihanna beef obviously didn’t end like we thought it did after the two singers went back and forth on Twitter and then apologized quickly after. Apparently things got nasty between both after Ciara suggested that Rihanna had gotten the big head and thought she was too good to speak when she saw her at a party. When Rihanna got word about Ciara comments (which she made on The Fashion Police), Rihanna came for Ciara on Twitter and shaded her struggling music career. The apology obviously didn’t mean much since Rihanna is still shading Ciara’s music career on the social networks these days.

The other day, Ciara released a video of her singing her new single “Body Party” in the bathroom of her hotel in Paris. Rihanna and her best friend Melissa then posted a photo of them smirking and watching the video on Rihanna’s smart phone, prompting Ciara’s fans to let the singer know about the shade. Ciara still kept it grown, and suggested on Twitter that she wasn’t going to engage in a back and forth, then suggested that Rihanna has some growing up to do.

But in a recent interview with radio station 107.5 WGCI, Ciara claims that she wasn’t sure where the shade came from because she thought she and Rihanna were cool.

She says:

“Well you know I’m not going at it with anybody. And I haven’t. I always thought everything was cool. I actually remember seeing Rihanna like two years ago at the Met Gala after we had the little, small back and forth [on Twitter]. So from what I recall, everything was cool.

“In my mind, I operate from a place of love and peer support. If you would have asked me about her up until this point, I wouldn’t have nothing but good things to say because I’m sincerely happy for her. I didn’t receive what they did [on Instagram] from a positive place.”


Side note, why did the interviewer ask Ciara if her last album was sold in KFC? We’re not kidding either.


Anyway, peep the interview below and Ciara’s excellent method of changing the subject from that KFC question below:


  1. I saw those coupons. I think it was fake though. I couldn’t imagine someone spending $4.95 for a that piece of trash album.

    1. He really was. Anyway, I like her response to the question about Rihanna. Sounds like Rih is fake. Smiling in Ci’s face yet cracking jokes on her on Instagram. How childish.

      1. Are you throwing shade? I hope not. Especially if you’re a Rihanna fan because she will flop soon enough. Karma is real baby. Just watch.

      1. I think she’s talking about the comments she made on Fashion Police about Rihanna. There’s a clip on YouTube.

  2. If Ciara is such a non factor, why is Rihanna still worried about her? You don’t see Bey worrying about Keri Hilson. I think that just means Ciara still has a shot and even has Rih scared with her non singing/non dancing self.
