Rihanna Says She Won’t Join Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour
Unless you’re Katy Perry, it seems like there wouldn’t be a reason to decline an invitation to join the growing list of massive celebrity guest stars on Taylor Swift‘s 1989 tour. From her crew of celebrity BFFs, actors, and fellow music artists, it’s quite possibly the biggest punch of star power anyone has ever seen.
While it seems everyone has taken the stage with Taylor, there are a few stragglers many have been waiting to see walk the catwalk with Taylor, one namely being pop mega star, Rihanna. However, according to the 27-year-old, fans will be waiting forever, because it ain’t gonna happen.
Rihanna recently sat down with NME magazine and during her interview, explained her reason for having zero interest in sharing Taylor’s spotlight.
“I don’t think I would. I just don’t think it makes sense,” she said. “I don’t think our brands are the same. I don’t think they match, I don’t think our audiences are the same.”
I mean, makes sense, staying true to your brand, voice, and reputation is important, and Rihanna not wanting to take part doesn’t negate the fact that she does view Taylor as a role model and respects her work. Simply put, it’s just not a match.
Which now begs the question, who do you want to see pop up on Taylor’s stage next?
