For two days the Twitterverse has been buzzing with news of Tuesday’s social media squabble between former friends Rihanna and Teyana Taylor. As you may recall, the disagreement began after Rihanna shared a video of her hairstylist, Yusef Williams, wearing a black wig and singing Anita Baker’s “Caught Up In the Rapture Of Love”— a song that Teyana posted a video of herself singing just days prior. After Teyana confronted Rihanna, things got pretty ugly. Now Yusef is speaking out, claiming that the video was never meant to disrespect Teyana.
“Honestly, I just finished making the wig. I started making the video. It was amazing, no malicious intent towards Teyana. I just think it was uncalled for. Teyana killed that song,” Yusef told EnStarz.
He went on to say that the video is all in fun and that Rihanna really isn’t worried about Teyana .
“She [Rihanna] could care less. It was funny. Thats whats so funny. It wasn’t like that. She doesn’t care., that’s her personality.”
As for Teyana’s recent claims that her former friend is a cyberbully, Yusef says it’s definitely an exaggeration.
“It turned into this big drama, but I guess it was all good at the end of the day to help with her new album. A little publicity doesn’t hurt good or bad these days.”
It all seems so high school. What do you think of Yusef’s response?
