Ariana Grande: Rihanna Wasn't Laughing at My iHeart Radio Awards Performance
No drama here! After Rihanna appeared to laugh in the audience at Ariana Grande during her iHeart Radio Awards performance on May 1, the 20-year-old cleared up the confusion on Australian radio show, The Bump Show, on May 5.
The DJ on the show brought up the topic, telling Grande: "[Rihanna] wasn't laughing at you, she was laughing at something your best friend said … I know you guys caught up afterwards, did she clarify that?"
"The Way" singer explained: "I didn't see her laughing at me, but when I watched it afterwards it looked like she was just shocked because I was doing something different."
Grande went on to explain Rihanna later complimented her after her performance. "Afterward she was so kind to me, she was like, 'Lil' mama keep doing what you're doing because it's working.'"
As for the Internet's fascination with her performance, the "Problem" singer said that she "thought it was funny that people tried to make such a commotion out of it."
“[Rihanna] was just being playful and supportive," Grande said. "People are always trying to make a big deal out of nothing because they're bored."
No word yet on if she's spoken with less-than-impressed Luke Bryan.
