Rihanna’s not a fan of Taylor’s star-studded video for “Bad Blood” and her image as a “good girl,” according to a report in the Aug. 10 issue of OK! magazine. RiRi also wasn’t pleased with the epic slam on her friend, Katy, and she’s reportedly planning to retaliate with a diss song that blasts Taylor.
“Ri’s protective of Katy and bugged by Taylor’s growing good-girl clique,” the insider tells OK. Rihanna will reportedly record a song about a “kiss and tell” woman and that it’ll be an “aggressive club anthem with a video that’s just as brutal as ‘Bad Blood.'” Wow! Considering how brutal Rihanna got in her video for “BBHMM”, we know that when RiRi goes hard, she gets murderous! Yikes.
While Taylor hasn’t said that “Bad Blood” was specifically about Katy, the wig that Selena Gomez wore in the video was very Katy Perry. There won’t be any confusion when RiRi drops the video for her reported diss track, as the insider tells OK that “it’ll be very obvious that it’s about Taylor.”
Rihanna hasn’t told Katy any specifics over the song or the video, but the source tells OK that she “is aware that Rihanna wants to do something.” As for backlash from Taylor’s army of Swifties, the source claims that Rihanna couldn’t care less! “She’s not worried…she knows Taylor’s intimidated by her.”
It’s good to see Rihanna reportedly taking care of her friends. These two look out for each other: Katy had RiRi’s back when the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards announced their nominations! Katy threw some shade towards MTV for not including Rihanna’s “BBHMM” video in this year’s nods, calling the exclusion a “real travesty!”
Are you excited about a reported Rihanna diss track, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she should get involved or stay out of the fight?
