And Finally

Ciara and Rihanna participate in shortest ever Twitter war

R&B-sters Ciara and Rihanna have been participating in a Twitter feud after the former accused the latter of being rude when they met at a party. Asked what she thought of Rihanna’s style by Joan Rivers on a fashion show on the E! channel, Ciara said: “I ran into her recently at a party. She wasn’t the nicest. It’s crazy, because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion. It wasn’t the most pleasant run-in”.

Rihanna responded via Twitter, resulting in a few exchanges of words on the micro-blogging platform. I think they were playful exchanges, though it’s hard to tell. To be honest I have no idea what either songstress was talking about. Perhaps I’m getting too old for this shit.

Anyway, it went like this:

Rihanna: “My bad Ci, did I 4get to tip u? Howrudeofme”.

Ciara: “Trust me Rihanna u dont want to see me on or off the stage”.

Rihanna: “U gangsta huh? Haaa…Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of”.

I’m assuming this was playful dissing – or perhaps the shortest feud in pop history – because the Twitter exchange soon became a love-in.

Rihanna: “Ciara baby, I love u girl! U hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I’m heartbroken! That’s y I retaliated this way! So sorry! Letsmakeup”.

Ciara: “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”.

What’s this “chatting in person” of which they speak?
