Rihanna, the popular singer, openly shares her despise for the Kardashian family, especially for Kylie Jenner. It should come as no surprise that the Kylie Cosmetics owner has been known to be “borrowing” the singer’s style, product ideas, and fame. Twitter users would often call out the Kardashian on her antics of stealing the spotlight from not only Rihanna but also Beyonce, especially when her new studio album, “Lemonade“, had dropped. The singer most recently had her first baby on the 13th of May, 2022. After the news of the singer becoming a mother, she has mostly been silent and was spotted recently with her partner, A$AP Rocky who has been facing legal troubles during their pregnancy.
The Kardashians cannot get enough of Rihanna
The feud between the singer and the Kardashians has been going on for ages, what some people may not know about when it started to take a more heated turn was in 2015. Rihanna’s friend, Jourdan Dunn, was set to be a model in Victoria’s Secret fashion show, however, Kendall Jenner had other plans as she seemingly stole the spot from Jourdan Dunn and replaced her as the model for the fashion show. Due to this, Rihanna refused to perform at the event and made sure to let everyone know exactly why.
Kylie Jenner, the “self-made” entrepreneur for Kylie Cosmetics also has seemingly stolen product ideas from the singer. Rihanna started her own company known as Fenty Beauty in 2014, which had 40 concealer shades by 2017 which expanded to having 50 shades. Only a few months later, Kylie Cosmetics would expand to having 30 shades even though it is more of a lip-based cosmetic company.
Copycat down to the iconic crystal dress
Rihanna donned the iconic crystal dress at the CFDA fashion awards in 2014. The dress had over 230,000 Swarovski crystals turned into a dress by Adam Selman. The reason why it is iconic is due to the bold nature of the singer donning the crystal dress with nothing underneath. However, in 2018, Kylie Jenner copied the exact same look and uploaded it to her official Instagram page. The reason why Kylie Jenner’s version of donning the crystal dress was inferior is due to the fact that she was wearing a nude bra underneath the dress, instantly diminishing the boldness that the dress once represented. Not to mention, that even after all the appreciation that the Kardashian was receiving, Rihanna fans were quick to point out that the look was stolen.
Nepotism cannot beat talent
No matter how much the Kardashians attempt to copy the style and business ideas of the singer, Rihanna still remains to be a powerhouse when it comes to fame and success even when the Kardashians seem to thrive on wealth and controversy, which just goes to show that the family built on wealth and fame filled with “self-made” entrepreneurs cannot beat a woman driven by talent.
