RUBBISHES BEYONCE FEUD REPORTS
Singer Rihanna slammed the reports that she is involved in a dispute with fellow R and B superstar Beyonce Knowles, insisting that she finds such rumours “annoying”.
The ‘Umbrella’ singer is also disgusted by circulating rumours that she is in a romantic relationship with her music mogul mentor Jay-Z, who is Knowles’ long-term boyfriend.
She added that initially it was difficult to ignore such speculations but now she has understood not to give importance to them.
“It actually gets annoying sometimes. At first it was funny, because I was like, ‘This is insane.’ But it gets frustrating after awhile,” Contactmusic quoted Rihanna, as saying.
“Now, I’m ignoring it, I’m getting better at doing that. But she (Knowles) is one of the sweetest women I’ve ever met.”
