In 2005, she was accused of biting Beyonce.
In 2007, she was said to have ripped off Fefe Dobson.
Now, in 2015, Rihanna has been labelled a “bootleg FKA Twigs” by critics who have accused of the star of stealing the singer’s style and attempting to present it to the world as her own.
Full story below…
Yesterday marked the release of the singer’s spread in ‘i-D’ magazine, launched to support her rising new single ‘FourFiveSeconds’ and the studio album it was pulled from.
Alas, the shoot has generated negative attention from eagle-eyed observers who are now accusing the singer of “borrowing” FKA Twig’s 90s girl persona to create a “new” look for the latest era of her career.
Twitter users blasted her with:
So, is Rihanna biting the artist Formerly Known As Twigs?
We’d say this is a case of “It was my idea to copy Marilyn Monroe”, seeing Riri make the mistake of pulling from an era already being celebrated by an artist with more credibility than her.
For, we’re sure Twigs will be the first to admit she isn’t doing anything girls in Peckham, London or Brooklyn, New York weren’t doing in the 90s, making the Rihanna bashing a little unfair in this case.
