The other day there was a rumor that Estelle tweeted, she would rock the song Run This Town better than Rihanna. Well, now that sh*t has hit the fan, here is what Estelle had to say:

“Someone else twittered that remark to me and one of the UK tabloids then chose to “rewrite” this and post it online… Watching this unfold, it is crazy that something that I didn’t even say can end up as such a big news story.”

Pop it for More

Estelle has denied reports that she slated Rihanna on networking site Twitter.
The Sun said the American Boy singer had tweeted about Jay-Z’s new track Run This Town which features Ri.

It was claimed Estelle said she could have sung the chorus better and said: “Rihanna just doesn’t do it for me.”

In a statement Estelle has now denied the story to MTV News. She said: “Twitter is a funny old thing.. I just need to be clear though. I have not said anything at all about me wanting to be on the Jay Z / Kanye / Rihanna track.

“Someone else twittered that remark to me and one of the UK tabloids then chose to “rewrite” this and post it online… Watching this unfold, it is crazy that something that I didn’t even say can end up as such a big news story.”

For those of you that are not up on twitter, the problem is when you retweet (RT) what someone else tweets then that means you agree with there tweet. The girls that originally sent the first tweet have stated that they made the comment and NOT Estelle but the damage has been done.

    RiRi will eat Estelle and her squeaky voice alive. Pshhhhhh. she has NOTHING on Rihanna. sorry estelle. if the article didn’t mention the name of your song I would have no idea who the F you are.

  • SteelCityChick

    Estelle may not be as visually stimulating as Rihanna, but she as hell can sing better than Rihanna. So whether Estelle said it or agreed with it……..It’s the truth!!

  • MsBackToBlack(GET WELL AMYWINEHOUSE)

    Estelle and Riri kinda of favor each other alot….just that one has talent and one doesnt, one is dark and one is light…other gets undeserved recoginition and one doesnt. Hmm?

  • DOA

    Shes wrong. Absolutely no-one can save that track. Kanye used a weaker beat than he gave to ‘Rhymefest’. Thats sayin somethin.

  • http://www.bossip.com jjj / Proud Jamaican

    They didn’t want Estelle’s horse teeth on the track! They choose Rihanna and she did a good job on that song…Rih also helped to bring attention and international interest to it.
    Just stop hating.
    I like Estelle though, and I knew she wouldn’t have said something like that.

  • Lola

    @BROOKLYN KID…..Agreed.

  • http://bossip.com Duhhh

    RiRi will eat Estelle and her squeaky voice alive. Pshhhhhh. she has NOTHING on Rihanna. sorry estelle. if the article didn’t mention the name of your song I would have no idea who the F you are.

    This is a perfect case of people picking the Pretty Girl with no talent over the not soo pretty girl with talent

  • wash ya ass

    @ jjj

    youdont know anything about music do you.

  • Oh Well...

    @Duhhh

    RiRi not having talent is YOUR opinion. I on the other hand love her voice, love her songs, love that fact that you can’t really put her music in a specific genre…I think she’s very talented, fresh AND beautiful. just because you disagree doesn’t mean I’m wrong.

  • Nah.

    Those captions are corny and stale.

  • WTF

    Estelle didn’t even RT the comment, she RT-ed the tweet clearing her name. She would have done way better than Rihanna’s no talent having ass.

  • Apoc87

    Twitter is dumb.

    @ Brooklyn Kid:

    The music industry became false MORE than 10 years ago!!! We’ve been in a drought, a talent recession for quite some time now! I listen to all of my old school jams when there were REAL SINGERS and PERFORMERS and it wasn’t so much about a pretty face and big booty – it was about REAL TALENT!

    Groups like Brown Stone, Jade, En Vogue, Jodeci, Lo Key, Troop, singers like Mikki Howard, Stephanie Mills, Luther, Al Green, Bobby Womack, Gladys Knight, Regina Belle……there aren’t too many people of this calibur around in the music biz today, and the ones who can sing are tucked away on BETJ barely being seen or heard. It’s sad.

  • EtherUtopia

    WTF?? What’s the point of drumming of some conflict between Estelle and RiRi? (I can believe I’m actually commenting on this schitt).

    Is this a light-skin vs dark-skin thing?

    Estelle could’ve brought international status also she is from the Uk isnt she? They just wanted Rhi to sing it she is his protege. I dont think talent had anything to do with it.

  • Young Lady

    I think both girls are talented….. in different perspectives

  • http://comcast FoxY

    I think that the song is overhyped, it’s pedestrian at best…
