Could a feud be brewing between Tamar Braxton and Rihanna? The Braxton Family Values star is very upset about the decidedly poor critical reception to Hot Sugar, her brand new music video. But instead of accepting responsibility, she’s placing all the blame squarely on the shoulders of Rihanna’s photographers. What gives?
Have you seen Tamar Braxton’s Hot Sugar music video? No? Well, you’re certainly not alone. The response to last week’s debut was lukewarm, at best, with the music video plagued by a lack of fan enthusiasm, not to mention several negative reviews. Tamar acknowledges Hot Sugar’s status as the ultimate music video letdown, but insists that its failure is most definitely not her fault.
Tamar Braxton feels that all blame lies with Gomillion and Leupold, Rihanna’s acclaumed photographers. After promising to assist in the production of Tamar’s music video, the pair instead chose to follow Rihanna through the final stages of her world tour. Hoping to alert the world to their betrayal, Tamar recently stopped by Gomillion and Leupold’s Instagram account, leaving an epic rant in the comments section of one of their photos.
After opening with the admission, ”I think you guys are very talented,” Tamar proceeded to bash the photographers for ditching the Hot Sugar music video while it was still in the beginning stages of production. The singer referred to this decidedly hands-off approach as “pure F**KERY,” adding that their prompt disappearance forced her to “hire and edit a bunch of nonsense” for the sake of her fans.
To add insult to injury, Rihanna’s photographers refused to attach their names to Tamar Braxton’s music video. They clearly were reluctant to be associated with a less than stellar production, although, as Tamar correctly points out, they’d likely have boasted incessantly about their involvement had the music video proven a miraculous success. Continuing her crazed Insta-rant, the singer complained, “if people would have thought it was brilliant…you would have blasted the video [and] ya’ll name everywhere.”
