Rihanna has denied that she threw shade a Beyonce on Instagram after she did not get nominated for Album of the Year category at Grammys. Rihanna earned eight nods this year, including Record of the Year for “Work,” her collaboration with ex Drake — her acclaimed album Anti was not nominated for Album of the Year, while Beyoncé’s stunning visual album, Lemonade, was.

Shortly after the nominations were announced, Rihanna liked a fan’s Instagram post dissing Beyonce, sparking rumours of a feud between the two pop superstars. The singer, 28, later took to the social media to quash fueled speculation.

“I never actually read your caption, thought the pic was funny and moved right along! Til I saw it pop up over and over! (sic)” she wrote. “I’m petty of, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y’all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don’t need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees! (sic),” she added.

Rihanna also made it clear that despite missing out in the Album of the Year category, she was happy to bag 8 nods. “How could y’all say that?” she replied to another fan’s comment saying Anti was snubbed. “8 nominations later! God is great!!!”
