Leona Lewis whines about Rihanna’s success of ‘We Found Love’: “Mine’s better”

Leona Lewis wouldn’t confirm or deny a rumor about One Direction and now she is claiming that she’s better than Rihanna. On Sunday more reports surfaced where she is suggesting her version of “We Found Love” is better than Rihanna’s single that was released.

The two entertainers apparently recorded the same song, but it was Leona Lewis who decided not to release the single giving Rihanna an option to do so. Even so, Lewis is now claiming something wasn’t quite fair about the decision as her version is better than Rihanna’s version.

I didn’t commit to it because I wanted Troubleto be my first single,” said Leona Lewis. “I think that was another reason they went with Rihanna. It was the same version and production but mine’s better.

Of course Leona Lewis has no intentions of releasing her version of  “We Found Love” for the fans to decide which is better, which is very disappointing after whining how unfair Rihanna is to release her version. Readily admitting she made the choice, Leona Lewis acts as if everyone should feel sorry for her bad judgment on song selections. Continue reading

Rita Ora: Stop trying to make a Rihanna feud happen

Rita Ora was initially flattered by being compared to superstar and fellow Roc Nation artist Rihanna, but as she comes into her own as an artist, she doesn’t listen to the critics who call her a copy of Rihanna, and she’s making it clear that there is no feud with her.

My music’s different, we sing differently, we’re from different parts of the world,” she said of the comparisons in a new interview.

Rita is the newbie in the industry, so juicy stories of a feud with a superstar would catch anyone’s eye. Whether it be rumors that Rihanna is trying to steal Rita’s boyfriend or rumors Rita stole her hit song “R.I.P.” away from the “We Found Love” singer, the two singer’s have been put up against each other as bitter enemies. Rita says that is far from the truth.

We’ve seen each other lots of times and we hang out, Rita added. “So if people are trying to create a feud, not going to work. Even if that was the case, Roc would be like, ‘What are you guys doing? You’re part of the same family!‘” Continue reading

I liked the Rihanna video a lot because I felt like it was something different,he told MTV Australia when we caught up in Sydney last month.
