Tamar Braxton is catching a ton of flack lately for comments she made about Rihanna.
Braxton spoke with 105/1’s Angie Martinez in a recent interview and shared her feelings about Rihanna walking off with a Grammy for her “Unapologetic” album, stating:
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.
While Tamar attempted to clean up the comment by proclaiming her love for Rihanna, she also managed to throw quite a bit of shade, proclaiming that Rihanna’s music isn’t ‘soulful’ enough to for an R&B Grammy win.
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.
