Remember when Ariana Grande debuted her new single “Problem” with a live performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and the mini-chanteuse gave us a slightly more sexified version of herself?


Now you remember.

As she was doing her number, the camera cut to Rihanna, who appeared to be laughing at her—straight up.



But was she really laughing at her?

Ariana responded to the supposed diss on an Australian radio show:

"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. Afterwards she was so kind to me, she was like, 'Lil' mama keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working.'"

Hear that? Not a fight in sight.

"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."
