Rihanna seemed to be doing some serious fire-starting on July 3 when her friend posted a video of the singer twerking to a Drake song. But was RiRi actually trying to stir the pot — HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE answers.
Chris Brown likely doesn’t want to even hear Rihanna and Drake’s names in the same sentence, so it probably didn’t feel too good to see an Instagram video of his Unapologetic ex twerking to Drake’s song, “F***ing Problems” on July 3. Rihanna’s been known to diss Chris via social networking before, was this just her latest — and possibly most cutting — dig yet?
Rihanna: Sending A Message To Chris Brown & Drake?
A source close to Rihanna tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that despite what it looks like, she was NOT trying to piss off her ex-boyfriend. In fact, she wasn’t even sending any love Drake’s way with the video: “She’s not sending a message to either of those guys. When have you known Rihanna to be shy or passive aggressive? If she wanted to talk to either one, she would reach out to them,” says the source.
It is true that Rihanna isn’t afraid of confrontation, but she does have a history of Twitter feuding. There’s a difference between being afraid and just enjoying a little smack talk online — Rihanna seems to apply to the latter case. But if we accept that Rihanna wasn’t trying to diss Chris or send a message to Drake, then why make the video in the first place?
Rihanna ‘Was Feeling The Song’
The source has a very simple answer: because Rihanna just felt like it. “She was feeling the song and wanted to drop it a few times,” the source says. “Just because Drake and Chris have beef, that has nothing to do with her. She was feeling the song and thought she’d share [the video].”
“It’s just a video of her dancing,” the source concludes.
So that means it was just a coincidence that Rihanna was twerking at the exact moment Drake’s verse starts on “F***ing Problems!” What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you believe that Rihanna was just dancing? Let us know!
