Ciara, the 27-year-old singer-songwriter, recently spoke out about what she felt were negative intentions of Rihanna and her friend Melissa Forde, who took to social media to subliminally share their thoughts about her new song.
Forde posted a picture of herself and Barbadian pop star Rihanna smiling on Instagram while watching Ciara perform the acapella version of her new single "Body Party" in a video uploaded to YouTube.
"#BodyParty (bathroom acapella version) #London," Forde tweeted.
While some speculated about the intention of the Instagram post, Ciara spoke candidly about it in a recent interview on Chicago's 107.5FM.
"If you would have asked me about her up until this point I would have nothing but good things to say because I'm really happy for her," Ciara said about Rihanna on the radio station. "But I didn't receive what they did from a positive place."
After Ciara caught wind of the recent Instagram message from Forde, she retweeted it on her personal social media account. Her next message seemed to chastise the famed pop star and her friend.
"Don't have time 4 the silliness. Grow Up and Do Something Positive with ya selves for once," Ciara tweeted. "God Bless."
The singer was forthcoming about having issues with Rihanna in the past, although she spoke about believing the pair had resolved their problems.
"I thought everything was cool because I actually saw Rihanna two years ago at the Met Gala after we had the little small back and forth and from what I recall everything was cool," Ciara told the Chicago radio station recently. "So, in my mind I operate from a place of love and pure support."
The most recent exchange between the two singers took place two years after Rihanna and Ciara publicly exchanged words on the social media network. On an episode of E! Network's Fashion Police, Ciara admitted to having friction with the Barbadian singer.
After Rihanna heard about Ciara's comment, she tweeted, "my bad Ci, did I forget to tip you? How rude of me....You gangsta huh? Ha."
Although the pair exchanged combative messages on the social media network years ago, they eventually made up with one another.
"Ciara baby, I love you girl!" Rihanna Tweeted. "You hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I'm heartbroken! That's why I retaliated this way! So sorry! Let's make up."
Ciara, seemed to be willing to end things back then by accepting her peer's apology on Twitter.
"Rhi, u know its always been love since day 1! Doing shows and everything," Ciara tweeted. "You threw me off in that party! Apology accepted."
