Rihanna Puts An End To Those Beyoncé 'Feud' Rumors

The 28-year-old singer has been busy, to say the least. She recently released her eighth studio album, "Anti," inked a rumored million-dollar deal to collaborate with Puma and launched a massive world tour in March. Somehow, amid the chaos, she found time to talk to Vogue about working with Drake and Paul McCartney and shut down rumors about her rumored feud with Beyoncé. 

"Here 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." 

Fans started grumbling about Bey attempting to steal Rih's thunder after "Anti" came out. Just one week after the release, Beyoncé released "Formation," a surprise single and video that she performed one day later at the Super Bowl.  

The two singers were pitted against each other as soon as Rihanna stepped on the music scene. Rumors circulated that the young singer was cheating with Beyoncé's husband, Jay Z, and are still prevalent today. Recently, Rihanna's onetime publicist, Jonathan Hay, confessed that he started those rumors during a difficult time. 

"The PR stunt that I did was out of desperation to help break 'Pon de Replay,'" Hay said on Inside Edition. "It was reckless and I didn't think it was going to work. I was just throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what would stick." 

Rihanna also spoke to Vogue about others in the industry she's been linked to, including her oft-rumored boyfriend, Drake. The rapper appears on Rihanna's hit single, "Work," and the subsequent video shows the two dancing and grinding on each other. 

"Everything he does is so amazing," Rih said of Drake, before dishing on another music genius, her "FourFiveSeconds" collaborator Paul McCartney. "It's almost like no one ever told him about his success. It’s like, Aren't you busy being a Beatle?"
