Rihanna‘s hairstylist, Yusef, who sparked the fire between the new Rih Rih and Teyana Taylor beef finally spoke out on the issue, and explained the intent behind the controversial parody.
“Honestly, I just finished making the wig. I started making the video. It was amazing, no malicious intent towards Teyana,” he said. “I just think it was uncalled for.”
“Teyana killed that song.”
Williams admitted that though he doesn’t know Taylor personally, they have mutual friends. When asked if Rihanna took Taylor’s tweets personally, Williams said the Diamonds singer is too focused with her work to be going back and forth with Taylor. “She [Rihanna] could care less. It was funny. Thats whats so funny. It wasn’t like that.,” he said. “She doesn’t care., that’s her personality.”
Williams also defended Rihanna and said she’s no “cyber bully.”
“Cyber bully is harsh word. She is focused, being Rihanna. She is not sitting around. She didn’t grab her phone. She is the most kind and giving person. I just think for that to go the way it went, it was uncalled for.”
In an earlier statement, Williams said that Taylor took the video and “ran like the wind.”
“It turned into this big drama, but I guess it was all good at the end of the day to help with her new album. A little publicity doesn’t hurt good or bad these days,” he wrote. We get it Yusef. Robyn signs your checks, so you’re not gonna nibble the hand that feeds you, but miss us with this “It wasn’t like that” isht. We all know how petty your employer is.
