Ariana Grande talked about Rihanna being caught laughing in the audience during her performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1.


During an interview on Monday with Australia’s radio program “The Bump Show,” the host noted Rihanna “wasn’t laughing at you, she was laughing at something your best friend said. I know you guys caught up afterwards, did she clarify that?”

“I didn’t see her laughing at me, but when I watched it afterwards it looked like she was just shocked because I was doing something different.” said Grande, noting, “Afterwards she was so kind to me, she was like, ‘Lil’ mama keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working.'”

Grande added, “I thought it was funny that people tried to make such a commotion out of it when she was just being playful and supportive… People are always trying to make a big deal out of nothing because they’re bored.”
