    For those who need a shade translation: "Desperado" is a track on Rihanna's latest album Anti that was performing higher on Billboard's "Bubbling Under Hot 100" chart than Beyoncé's latest single, "Formation," DESPITE the fact Bey performed the song at the Super Bowl.

    Fast forward two weeks and Rihanna is claiming there's no rivalry between the two. In the cover story for the April issue of Vogue magazine, RiRi says the two fanbases are just trying to cause drama.

    "Here's the deal," she says. "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."

    Did you get that? DESPITE LIKING SHADY TWEETS, there's no rivalry between the two singers! As Vogue's cover suggests, it's Rihanna's world, so you better listen.
