Despite Past Beef With Rihanna, Teyana Taylor Puts Pettiness Aside To Praise Ri Ri’s New Vogue Cover
Last September, all hell broke loose on Twitter between Rihanna and Teyana Taylor. If you’ll recall, Taylor posted an Instagram video of herself singing Anita Baker’s “Caught Up In The Rapture” (beautifully by the way), and out of nowhere, Rihanna posted a video of a person from her team wearing a long curly wig, a baseball cap, singing (terribly by the way) the same song. Taylor took it as a personal attack and was not only embarrassed, but enraged. She went off on Twitter:
Don’t play wit me rihanna f-ck all this industry sh-t, YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? u got my #, don’t show off.
y’all could bully everybody else & get away wit that sh-t but that sh-t ain’t gone work ova here. so y’all could miss me with that NAVY sh-t

Let me stop y’all know RiRi punk A$$ be pressing charges
Things got really ugly when Taylor posted this photo on Twitter:
People, especially fans of Rihanna’s Navy, were very upset about all this. And after months of online petitions and some deliberating, Taylor was fired as a spokesperson and sneaker creator for Adidas in December.
So with all that, you would think that Teyana Taylor would be through with the Bajan pop star. However, she put animosity and pettiness aside to show love to one of Rihanna’s new Vogue Brazil covers. She said this on Twitter about the image:
No response from Rihanna, but I would have to agree that Ri Ri is looking quite amazing on this cover. Hey, the girl knows how to take an amazing picture! But are you surprised that Taylor would come out and show Rihanna love after how ugly things were between them? Speak on it below.
