RiRi Clone Hates Being Called RiRi Clone

6/15/2009 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna CloneRihanna's doppleganger is hella, ella mad at the AP and Yahoo for misidentifying her as RiRi at the Lakers/Magic game last night -- and now she's putting them on blast via her Twitter page.

Teyana Taylor -- who is one of Pharrell's singer protege's -- wrote:

"omgggggg if one more reporter say that im rihanna im gonna go crazzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy ... I wish the AP would do a little research. since wen am i RIhanna ... yahoo and everybody else just did a biggg f***in s**t"

Right, because it's a huuuuge stretch to think someone with a RiRi mohawk, wearing RiRi hipster shades and sitting one person away from RiRi's old boyfriend Chris Brown could possibly be RiRi.

The audacity!

This is as close to famous you'll ever get, be happy for this much. Like you didn't expect people to mistake you for her the only difference is that you don't have two black eyes and bruises all over you....yet.

At first glance - you might think Riri - but this young woman is herself. If she looks like Riri a little - is that her fault?

bestfriends?    

how does she want attention??..A lot of people may have not herd of her but she's BEEN out there since her sweet 16 show. She raps, and she's ALWAYS had that style frm day 1. and NEWS FLASH..rihanna DEF hasnt had her style frm DAY 1..she ended up getting stylests for her to dress the way she dresses now! If you bring up pics of her a couple years back, she didnt knw HOW to dress... Teyana has been dressed that way, she doesnt need a stylisto! Hater?..i think NOT..she has nothing to hate ON

damn, it's 2009 and all black people still look alike to you guys?

come out of your cave, folks, and let the sunshine clear your minds - and your eyes! even if you don't know who she is (and if you don't, so what?), any seeing person should at least be able to recognize that she is NOT Rihanna.

ugh!

based on this site alone, any black person ever convicted of a crime because a white person i.d.'d them should have their case re-visited. obviously, you guess couldn't tell the difference between rihanna, prince and nina simone!

stop it. when teyana was on sweet 16 (mtv show) she dressed like this. that was like 2 or 3 years ago, she is the originator of this style. this is for black kids. alot of us dress this way. rihanna did not invent the wayfarer. the mohawk or anything else. rihanna is a jock. a lot of black kids dress like this chick and chris brown. sorry yall whiteys need to catch up on the fashion tip. im not racist, i love white folks, but yall are a little slow on the fashion game. anyways, both girls dress cute. i would raid their closets. and who's the dumbass who actually typed, "why does she have to wear glasses" *looks around* ugh bitch cuz she wants to.
DERRR!!!

Hmmm, too bad she looks NOTHING like Rihanna. Compliment to her, insult to Rihanna. Note to media: not all black girls look the same. Do some research, people.

This chick looks NOTHING like Rihanna, NOTHING. What is her claim to fame anyway? Her mommy works with artists. RiHanna should be offended. I look better than this chick and I'm pushin 40.

there is nothing wrong with Teyana not wanting to be compared to rihanna, Teyana is her own person. I'm pretty sure many of the people who are bashing Teyana with their comments might think it's a complement because rihanna is pretty but they would also feel erased if they were in Teyana's shoes. If people were calling a person by someone else's name and saying they look like another person it's okay to be upset, no one wants to be a double wanna-be.
