What a mess one statement can make.
Ciara ignited a war of words with Rihanna when she appeared on E!’s Fashion Police to rip on red carpet looks , and, apparently, air out some dirty laundry on the pop star.
“I ran into her recently at a party and she wasn’t the nicest,” CiCi said. “It’s crazy because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done with fashion and I’ve ran into her before, but this time it just wasn’t the most pleasant run in.”
The comment obviously peeved RiRi off, causing the pop princess to take to Twitter to issue a scathing comeback. “My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme” Ouch!
Both singers went back and forth, never tweeting directly to each other, in an exchange that was equally as horrifyingly childish as it was epically entertaining.
Ciara: “Trust me Rhianna u dont want to see me on or off stage.”
Rihanna: “U gangsta huh? Haaa.” “Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of.”
Soon after, Rihanna issued an apology that read more like sarcasm than a genuine truce. “Ciara baby, I love u girl! You hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I’m heartbroken! That’s y I retaliated this way! So sorry! #letsmakeup”
Whether or not the apology was sincere, CiCi accepted. “Rhi u know its always been love since day 1! Doing shows/everything. You threw me off in that party! Apology accepted. Let’s chat in person.”
Rihanna ended the twitter feud (for now) with one last retort. “Joke,” she tweeted. We’re not exactly sure what she meant by that, but we have three guesses: a. She called Ciara a joke; b. She meant the apology was a joke; or c. She meant the entire back and forth was a joke. We’re leaning towards b.
