Rihanna clarifies Beyonce rivalry, talks ‘Anti’ tour in Vogue cover story

RihannaRihanna graces the April cover of Vogue magazine and in the spotlight feature talks about her upcoming “Anti” tour (“I am probably going to have like four days of tour rehearsal in total, which is Freaking. Me. Out,” she told her interviewer at the time) and how she doesn’t have time to pursue a relationship or work out as much as she’d prefer.

Last month, the R&B-pop singer postponed the start of her tour because of production delays, which bumped her Atlanta appearance from March 9 to May 18, the final U.S. date.

The story also delves into the perceived rivalry between Rihanna and Beyonce, especially since B dropped her “Formation” the same week that “Anti” was climbing the charts.

Rihanna, though, indicates that she doesn’t care.

“Here’s the deal,” she says. “They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”
