“She doesn’t sing R&B music…”
Tamar Braxton Blasted For Rihanna Comments
At the 2014 Grammys Rihanna took home Best Urban Contemporary Album for the project, successfully beating out Tamar’s “Love & War.” And according to Tamar who spoke with Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez, she had an “issue” with it because Rihanna is a pop star.
“She doesn’t sing R&B music. She’s a pop star. I had an issue with that a little bit. I love her [though]. Glad she won.”
And when asked what she considers R&B music Tamar added,
“It’s called Rhythm and Blues. Ribs and Barbecue. It’s not pop pop pop tat uh tat tat tat. It’s soulful. That’s R&B. Every song of hers I’ve gotten my complete and utter life to… twerking. I’m just saying. I love her; I’m one of her biggest fans period, but that’s not R&B music.”
Wellllllll, she’s NOT lying.
Rihanna’s Navy of course was none too pleased by Tamar’s comments and they’re currently going IN on the singer via social media.
