Rihannashowed out with an enormous live debut of her new single “Bitch Better Have My Money” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards a few days ago, a performance that included a prop helicopter and RiRi in a green fur coat.

There’s no lawsuit yet, but an account associated with Just Brittany addressed the similarity in a since-deleted Tweet and she also spoke to website Arenaabout the resemblance. “My management team is looking into it and taking care of it,” she said. “That’s where we’re at with it.”
