Twitter Beef: Rihanna vs. Teyana Taylor
"Battle of the Ana(s)"


(*Ding.. Ding*)

In the right corner, we have Bajan pop star and notorious bad girl, Rihanna, and in the left corner we have Harlemite and Kanye’s Good Music protégée, Teyana Taylor.

Yesterday, a new Twitter war emerged between these two, and everyone in the twitterverse grabbed a front row seat to watch the “cattiness" play out... all in under 140 characters. 

Round 1:

It all started by an alleged subliminal jab at Teyana, as  Rihanna a posted a video on Instagram of her hairdresser Yusef  dressed in a wig and baseball cap ( Teyana’s signature style), singing Anita Baker’s “Caught Up In The Rapture.” Ironically, two weeks ago, Ms. Taylor posted a video of herself singing the same song on Instagram (hmm) .While the Rihanna  navy  thought it was pretty comical, Teyana Taylor didn’t think it was funny at all. She felt as though she was being bullied.

Enraged, she posted on Twitter:

Don’t play wit me rihanna f-ck all this industry sh-t, YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? u got my #, don’t show off.

y’all could bully everybody else & get away wit that sh-t but that sh-t ain’t gone work ova here. so y’all could miss me with that NAVY sh-t

i sing caught in the rapture on IG then she posts her boy singing the same song, the same part, with curly hair and a snap back???

Petty is petty and shade is shade, b-tch knew what the f-ck she was doing.

Round 2 :

After a series of angry tweets from Teyana, Rihanna eventually responded tweeting:

Screaming in an empty room! #dontfeedtheanimals

I REFUSE to help your career…you will NOT get an @ from me! Not til you pay me! #iRefuse

I hate broke b-tches.


Round 3:

Things got a little more heated when Rihanna changed her Twitter header to show her net worth in comparison to Teyana Taylor’s:









To add more fuel to the fire Teyana changed her Twitter header to Twitter header to a photo of her beating up Rihanna.







The two ladies exchanged several zingers throughout the evening, as fans were amidst of all the drama, egging the two divas on.  We will see how this “beef” will play out; hopefully the two former friends will find some common ground and squash the whole thing.

Can’t we all just get a long?
