Rihanna vs Ciara
The long standing beef between RiRi and CiCi started back in 2011 when Ciara made an appearance on an episode of E!’s Fashion Police and mentioned having an unpleasant run-in with Rihanna at a party, very politely saying that she “wasn’t the nicest.” Rihanna took offense and fired at her on the Internet, tweeting “My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme.” Ciara retorted with “Trust me Rihanna you don’t want to see me on or off the stage,” but RiRi is not one to scare easily and fired back, “Good luck booking that stage you speak of.”
The pair supposedly reconciled but the feud was re-kindled in 2013 after Ciara posted a Youtube video of herself singing an a capella version of her single “Body Party” in a London hotel bathroom. Rihanna (and crew) threw shade at Ciara on Instagram shortly afterwards, posting a photo of them in chuckling in a bathroom with the caption “#BodyParty (bathroom a capella version) #London.” This time CiCi took the high road with Rihanna and said she only “wishes her positivity.”
She also claims she has no idea what Rihanna’s problem is and no longer cares.

Rihanna vs Teyana Taylor
RiRi certainly likes to poke fun at her less successful industry colleagues.
Up-and-coming singer Teyana Taylor posted a video of herself doing a cover of Anita Baker’s “Caught Up in the Rapture” on Instagram in late September without a care in the world, but her innocent video provoked the oft-seen mischievous side of ex-bff Rihanna. The Barbadian hit-maker saw fit to poke fun at the songstress and posted a video of her male hairstylist in a curly wig singing the same song.
This time RiRi may have met her match. After seeing the video, a furious Teyana responded on Twitter, saying “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.”
The Rihanna Navy came to RiRi's defense with a flurry of tweets, sparking heated replies from Taylor. Rihanna eventually spoke out, tweeting "I REFUSE to help your career..." and later "I hate broke b--ches." She followed that up by changing her Twitter cover photo to a image comparing her $90 million net worth to Taylor's supposed $500k. Teyana retaliated by switching her cover photo to a PhotoShopped image of a duo boxing with her head pasted on the prevailing boxer and Rihanna's 2009 battered face pasted on the other. The G.O.O.D Music artist also compared Rihanna's net worth to the number of men she had slept with and called her a "cyberbully" in a radio interview.
And that's not even the whole story.
Rihanna vs Beyoncé
Beyoncé is the undisputed Queen of music right now, and apparently even she knows it with her unreleased song “Bow Down” possibly being a message to all the other divas in the business.
Rihanna, however, decided to send a message of her own, seemingly telling Bey to bow down when she posted a screenshot of an article naming her “Britain’s Most Influential Pop Star” on Instagram. She won the title over Beyoncé, Katy Perry, One Direction and Justin Bieber. The "Pour it Up" singer added the caption: “I only know how to be number 1!! I could use a challenge… ‘How dat feel down there on ya knees, Huh?!” It may not have been a direct jab towards Beyoncé as she wasn’t the only artist that Rihanna beat, but the chances are pretty high that it was.
Rihanna vs Amanda Bynes
Former child star Amanda Bynes, who seems to have gone completely bonkers, has made a string of incendiary tweets at numerous stars including Jay-Z, Courtney Love, and most notably Drake.
Rihanna, known for picking on other celebs her age, also ironically found herself on the receiving in of Bynes' random insults in May 2013. Amanda tweeted to the Bajan bad girl out of the blue: “Chris Brown beat you cause you’re not pretty enough.” She also claimed that she almost named her dog Rihanna. Ouch! RiRi fired back saying she had no time for that and referenced Bynes’ recent less-than-sane behavior, tweeting “Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?” Amanda responded angrily, saying “Unlike ur fugly faced self I don’t do drugs! U need the intervention dog! I met ur ugly face in person! U aren’t pretty u know it!”
Rihanna didn’t bother with a response and insisted she was “done with all that stupid a** sh**!” Bynes, later denied the tweets ever came from her in the first place, saying “someone is always mocking up fake tweets!” and insisted that she and Rihanna will be in a music video someday. It was entertainment gold and we can't help but smirk at RiRi getting a taste of her own medicine.
Rihanna vs Katy Perry
Rihanna and Katy Perry have been good friends for a few years now, but the besties reportedly had a falling out over RiRi's decision to return to her ex Chris Brown in late 2012 after ignoring Perry's advice to stay away. A source said, “Katy told Rihanna that she couldn’t stick around and watch someone she loves make such a big mistake, and that she had to walk away. They haven’t spoken for months.” They eventually reunited a year later and were seen together in August 2013 at a dinner party in NYC.
Rihanna vs Joan Rivers
Katy isn’t the only one who wasn’t exactly happy about RiRi’s continued relationship with Chris Brown. After the “Diamonds” singer confessed in an interview with Oprah last year that she still loved her ex-boyfriend, outspoken TV personality Joan Rivers didn’t take too kindly to the statement, and saw fit to give her two cents on Twitter, calling the Barbadian beauty an “idiot,” and saying “Now it’s MY turn to slap her!” RiRi responded rather mildly to a 79-year-old Rivers, calling her “slow” and telling her to “Slap on some diapers.”
Rihanna vs Karrueche Tran
When a relationship ends between two people there’s bound to be some turbulence when one of them finds someone new. So how do you deal with it? Blast your ex’s new flame on Twitter and Facebook, of course!
From the RiRi tweeting about Chris’ on-again-off-again Vietnamese girlfriend Karrueche Tran, saying “ima make u my B--ch” to Karrueche telling the in-your-face singer that she had a better chance of “winning the lottery” than ending up on her friends list, these girls have not played nice. Throw in some fashion disses here and a rac1st Instagram photo there, and you’ve got yourself a good old fashion cat fight! Ironically enough Tran and Rihanna eventually managed to agree on one thing: cutting Chris Brown loose.
Wonder if the beef will be resurrected by Brown getting back with Tran.
Rihanna vs Draya Michelle
Karrueche isn't the only Chris Brown ex Rihanna has beefed with. She also had run-ins with Basketball Wives star Draya Michelle, who formerly dated Breezzy.
RiRi took shots at Draya and Karrueche back in July last year when she tweeted "I'm on the Bazaar cover. #LegitEliteModelShyte #Phuckyocareer." The unassuming tweet looked to be a jab at both Draya and Karrueche, who are self-professed models, but have seldom made appearances on anything as models. Shortly after Rihanna's tweet Draya posted to her Twitter account: "It always happens when I'm doing good. The devil takes form in these B**ches and cause them to think of me." She eventually concluded her string of tweets with "Anyway, Back to my creme brûlée...hoe" and "I'm just over ctfu (cracking the f**k up)."
Rihanna vs Minister Louis Farrakhan
Rihanna is definitely popular for being risque with her music and image, but not everyone is “feeling it.” Nation of Islam leader Minster Louis Farrakhan put the sex symbol on blast during one of his speeches in Chicago, calling her performances “filthy,” and calling those who enjoy them "swine.”
RiRi quickly responded and called out the Minister on Twitter, saying “A minster says I perform filthy, sat+watched the filth, then called u SWINE for doin the same! Haa, is that judgement in ur tone? #justgetsbettR.” She further defended her fans in a second tweet: “I certainly don’t think u are swine! But a holy man of God does!!!”
Rihanna vs Nivea Executive Stefan Heidereich
After a year of being the face of Nivea skincare Rihanna was dropped from the brand's advertising campaign in 2012 for being “too s e x y” and for maintaining a public partying lifestyle. The CEO of Nivea's parent company, Stefan Heidereich, regretted previous advertisements that included the raunchy singer, and stated that he didn’t know how to bring her image into alignment with a company that stands for family, trust and reliability.
Being her usual outspoken self, Rihanna tweeted a headshot of Heidereich with the words “No caption necessary.” Dropping Rihanna for lack of a family-friendly image is a no-brainer but certainly the folks at Nivea knew what her image was like before they put her on. It's not like she's the most subtle superstar.
Rihanna vs Sandra Rose
Rihanna vs Chris Brown
Chris Brown and Rihanna may profess to always love each other but between that fateful 2009 heated argument that left Rihanna with a bruised face and Chris with a bruised reputation, their on-again-off-again romance, and Twitter jabs that include Brown referencing RiRi's promiscuous lifestyle, tweeting "She's not mine if she's everybody else's" and Rihanna sending a big F-U to him and his OHB crew, we'd say they definitely have had their share of beefs. More recently comes news that Chris is dissing the "What Now "singer in his verse of the DJ Khaled single "I'm Still." Brown raps "Every n– in the industry done fu–ed my bi–h. And all my n– said I told ya..." Sounds like a shot to us but if history is any indication, these two will be back together before long.
Rihanna vs Drake
Word on the street is that Drake and Rihanna had themselves a little fling, the likes of which famously caused a beef between Drizzy and Chris Brown, but apparently things haven't been all that great between Rihanna and Drake either. Drake seemingly took shots at the Bajan singer in his song "No Lie" in May 2012, essentially calling her nothing more than a one night stand.
In September that year, RiRi seemed less than impressed with Drake and his crew at the MTV Music Awards. She can be seen snubbing the singer during his performance by not clapping, looking away, and reportedly mouthing the words "I hate these a**holes." Their alleged beef didn't last, though. The pair had a reported hookup on Nov 11, 2013 after one of Rihanna's concerts in Texas which had Drake in attendance.
Rihanna vs MTV Canada
Rihanna vs David LaChapelle
Apparently star-studded toes aren’t the only ones Rihanna has a tendency to step on. The singer released the music video for her song “S&M” back in early 2011 to much controversy. While most people objected to the inappropriate content of the video, famed photographer David LaChapelle griped with the Bajan singer's appropriation of his work. He accused the star of blatantly stealing material from his art and using it in the video without his involvement. A few shockingly similar picture comparisons surfaced online supporting his claims, and the eccentric photog decided to tweet to Rihanna on the matter, “Next time you make a David LaChapelle music video you should probably hire Dave LaChapelle.”
LaChapelle eventually sued for plagiarism, and in a stunning change RiRi had nothing to to say about this one. Instead of taking it to court, the suit reached a settlement.
Sounds like an admission of guilt to us..
