Rihanna’s recent antics and unapologetic attitude are not going over well with fellow singer Beyonce. From her pictures on Instagram smoking marijuana to her grabbing her crotch at performances, 24-year-old Rihanna is leaving a bad impression on the “Run The World” singer.
“Rihanna’s always been edgy, but now she’s completely out of control,” a source tells the National Enquirer. “Beyonce has worked hard to empower women with her music, and she feels Rihanna is undoing a lot of that work. She’s at the point now where seeing Rihanna grabbing her crotch on stage makes her feel sick… Bey thinks Rihanna is making herself look trashy for no good reason,” the insider continued.
Beyonce’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, signed Rihanna to his Roc Nation record label back in 2004, and since then, the younger singer has gotten closer to the diva. But both stars are very different when it comes to work ethic, and it allegedly further annoys Beyonce that Rihanna leaves fans waiting for hours before concert performances.
In May, for example, during her “Diamonds” world tour, Rihanna was three hours late. The performance was to make up for cancelling her March 10 show because she had laryngitis. But it seems she still disappointed her fans, with many tweeting and commenting about her lateness on social media.
One fan, @chrismahtin, said “@rihanna 2-3 hrs late for your show in Boston, huh??! #disrepectful #noexcuse basketball was more important huh?? Don't come back.”
“I will never, ever go to another Rihanna concert again. You have no respect for your fans and you don't deserve our money. So disappointed,” said @nadou2. It was speculated that Rihanna was busy watching an NBA game instead of taking the stage. Regardless, Rihanna did not acknowledge the tardiness or the anger from her fans.
“Leaving fans waiting is a no-no in Beyonce’s world. Jay’s very protective of Ri and doesn’t want to rock the boat, but Bey felt she wouldn’t be doing her job if she didn’t say something.”
