Teyana Taylor talks about her Twitter beef with Rihanna yesterday, and calls the singer a "cyber bully."
Yesterday we saw beef between Teyana Taylor and Rihanna blow up, after Teyana caught wind of an Instagram video posted by Rih Rih which was making fun of her singing.
The G.O.O.D. Music singer immediately called out Rihanna on Twitter. After some tweets & sub-tweets were sent back and forth, Rihanna changed her Twitter header to an image comparing the two singer's net worth, and Teyana followed suit by changing hers to two boxers fighting, one of which had Teyana's face and the other had Rihanna's beaten up face (a la Chris Brown). Teyana has since deleted her tweets and changed her header, but she called in to Hot 97 this morning to discuss the online exchange.
Teyana called Rihanna a cyber bully during the interview. "I really don’t understand neither. I’ve been in the studio, minding my business. And one day, which was yesterday, I randomly was on my Instagram page and I had heard that she made a video…and I just thought it was really harsh," Teyana said. "You got a dude singing “Caught Up In The Rapture of Love” with big hair, a snap-back, and some Jordans on. And I just sung that a week ago. It ain’t no coinkidink." Teyana added, "She knew what she was doing."
Teyana continued to explain her disbelief, especially considering the two actually know each other. "I know her very well and I made that very clear in my tweet." She continued to hypothesize on the reason for Rih Rih's actions. "I just think that her fans are loud and condone her behavior, and she does this to everybody, and it's not always fun and games all the time. You do it, you get away with it, you tried me. You clapped and I clapped back. You didn't think it would go as far as it did, but you can't do that to everybody."
"Yes I do think she's cyber bully. I think she has dope music, I'm not no hater, dope music is dope music and she's a pretty girl. But that don't mean that you can just bully anybody. It don't work like that," Teyana concluded.
