Rihanna and Teyana Taylor Engage in Social Media Shade War
It all started innocently enough two weeks ago when Teyana Taylor posted an Instagram video featuring her a cappella rendition of Anita Baker's 'Caught Up In The Rapture.' Apparently amused by Taylor's post, Rihanna posted an Instagram video yesterday featuring her male stylist wearing backwards snapback and a curly wig singing--you guessed it--'Caught Up In The Rapture.' And now, it's an all out war.
Not amused by Riri's spoof, Taylor lashed out on Twitter, asking the Barbados-born beauty what's up: "Don't play with me @Rihanna f-ck all this industry sh-t, YOU & I know each other very well. Throwing sub 4 wat? u got my #, don't show off."
While Teyana's tweet has since been taken down, hiphollywood.com reports the singer had a few more things to say before all evidence was removed from her TL:
“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,” Taylor posted. Then finished her rant by saying, “Petty is petty and shade is shade, b-tch knew what the f-ck she was doing.”
For her part Rihanna pulled no punches:
"I REFUSE to help your career...you will NOT get an @ from me! Not til you pay me! #nomorefreepromo #iRefuse"
