Rihanna Had The Best Response When Fans Pitted Her Against Beyoncé

"We don't need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees!"

Rihanna and Beyoncé are both great. That's a fact and it can't be disputed.

They've both absolutely ruled 2016 by releasing incredible music and slaying as per usual. But of course, because they're both successful black women, they often get pitted against each other unnecessarily.

It appeared that after the announcements, Rih liked a picture that was aiming shade at Bey.

The photo was a meme of Rihanna that was captioned by user rihannagang_, upset Rihanna didn't get nominated for song or album of the year: "I think they didn't want her tied or passing someone else *cough cough*" It was followed by a lemon emoji, a known symbol for Beyoncé's album Lemonade.

But according to The Shade Room, Rihanna has commented on the picture and made it absolutely clear that wasn't the case at all.

"I never actually read your caption, thought the pic was funny and moved right along! Til I seen it pop up over and over! I'm petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y'all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don't need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees!"

Just in case you didn't get that, basically THEY ARE BOTH GREAT AND WE SHOULD BE FOCUSING ON THAT INSTEAD OF PUTTING THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER. Now let's celebrate both of their excellence.
