Rihanna & Ciara Patch Things Up After Nasty Twitter Feud

'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

Chinesepod's Carlie discusses the meaning of the name 'Huawei' in light of the recent national security concerns of the Whitehouse


Former girlfriends of Chris Brown Rihanna and Ciara had their “claws out” on Saturday, ripping each other apart via Twitter. Ciara began bashing Rihanna for how she apparently treated her, and Rihanna put up quite a fight back. Sources from Access Hollywood state Ciara recently bashed Rihanna to What Not to Wear’s Joan Rivers. “I ran into [Rihanna] recently at a party. She wasn’t the nicest,” Ciara explained to Joan. “It’s crazy, because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion. It wasn’t the most pleasant run-in.” Immediately getting defensive, Rihanna responded via Twitter. “My bad Ci, did I forget to tip you? How rude of me....You gangsta huh? Ha,” she tweeted according to NBC San Diego. The argument escalated, and the tweets just kept on coming. Eventually, Rihanna decided to apologize, but it’s highly debatable if it was sincere. RiRi: “Ciara baby, I love u girl! You hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I’m heartbroken! That’s y I retaliated this way! So sorry! #letsmakeup” Cici: “pure comedy…” CiCi: “Rhi u know its always been love since day 1! Doing shows/everything. You threw me off in that party! Apology accepted. Let’s chat in person.” Rihanna’s final, mysterious reply? RiRi: “Joke” As Idolator phrases it, “We’ll leave it up to you to decide whether or not either diva’s apology was sincere, whether one or both of these ladies will get their eyes clawed out next time they meet in public, or if the whole thing was just an audition for the next Mean Girls.”
