Facebook and Google are among the many social media sites that will celebrate their birthday on Monday, April 1st, with a special post for you.
While Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat are among those offering special posts to celebrate their birthdays, the birthdays of other celebrities and famous personalities have been a bit more controversial.
Among them, Rihanna’s birthday has been a topic of conversation on social media, as she has been accused of plagiarizing her song “Party in the USA” for her hit single “One Dance.”
On social media this morning, Rihana herself took to Twitter to defend herself, posting a short message that read, “I’m happy for my fans and my fans are happy for me.
I want you to feel special for being your best friend.”
The popular singer has been in the headlines a lot lately, with the Grammy-winning song “Happy Birthday” and the music video for “Party In The USA” receiving massive backlash from her fans.
While Rihanna is no stranger to controversy on social networks, it has been her recent comments on social platforms that have received the most attention.
In an interview with “60 Minutes” back in November, the singer said, “If I did it the same way, I would be in jail for it.”
After being accused of copying Rihanna for her song, the pop star went on to explain to “60 Minute” that she did not think that her song would be the way she envisioned it going.
She went on, “We’re not making it for our fans to be like, ‘Oh, you copied Rihanna, she’s not the person she was.’
We’re making it so that you can feel happy.”
When she was asked about the controversy on a recent episode of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” Rihanna said, “‘Happy Birthday’ was about me being happy for myself and my family, but I never thought that people would say that about me.”
