Beyonce + Rihanna Kept A Cool Distance From One Another At Jay Z’s TIDAL Launch

Beyonce and Rihanna were among those present at Jay Z’s star-studded TIDAL launch on Monday. The two stood as far away from one another as possible on the stage, posing for an obligatory press photo that’s about as uncomfortable as farting during a sex scene. What’s going on with them? The Gossip Table has the dish.

Bey and RiRi couldn’t have been farther apart from one another on the stage of the TIDAL conference.

Well, technically they could have been if, like, they really wanted to, but you know what I mean. There’s also this overly posed photo taken of the two in which Beyonce’s all “My thighs look bangin’,” and Rihanna’s like “Who the fuck let me out of the hotel wearing this ill-fitted suit?”

There are also the series of pictures Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, and Beyonce took together and posted on social media, none of which includes Rihanna, who, at this point, was green with boob envy.

We know Bey and RiRi have a history of subtle shade-throwing, but the TIDAL conference was all about standing strong and united, with emphasis on the very thing all of the artists present had dedicated their lives to: music. What gives, ladies?
