There are many names that can be used to describe Rihanna including the most influential pop star in Britain! However humble is not one of them. The Diamonds singer was given this title by 4Music after extensive analysis of press coverage, airplay and media activity.

She annihilated all competition including Beyonce and music BFF Katy Perry! Even teen sensation Justin Bieber couldn’t do enough to outshine Ri-Ri.

This didn’t come as a surprise to Rihanna as she took to Instagram to boastfully inform her fans that she is indeed number one:


She didn’t stop there, the ego trip continued:



With Beyonce proclaiming that she is pop royalty and instructing the world to Bow Down… it seems Rihanna is not ready to oblige just yet.

Competition between the two has never been as intense as it is now.

Some Beyonce fans on Twitter were not shy when it came to expressing their views and pulling Ri-Ri down from her pedestal either:


Do you think Rihanna’s ego is a little bit too much?

Beyonce or Rihanna?  Who is number one in your opinion?
