Ariana Grande Responds to Rihanna Laughing During iHeartRadio Performance
Ariana Grande fans, put down your weapons (by which we mean your hair extensions and pointy-edged concert signs). Your leading lady has given Rihanna a by for that giggle fest she broke into during Ari’s performance at last week’s iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Ariana, of course, was getting down with her bad self during the performance of her latest single, “Problem.” While the Nickelodeon star gave sexy a go, cameras panned to Rihanna, a true mistress of sex appeal, who appeared to be blatantly laughing at the young star’s onstage efforts.
The meme-able moment was taken by many to be RiRi showing shade Ariana’s way but Ariana waved the white flag before any feud could really take hold. Speaking with Australian radio’s The Bump Show (via E! News), the “Baby I” singer said there’s no problem between her and Bad Girl RiRi.
“I didn’t see her laughing at me, but when I watched it afterwards, it looked like she was just like shocked because I was doing something different,” she says. “But afterwards, she was so kind to me. She was like, ‘Lil’ mama, keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working.’”
