When you log on to DrakeandRihanna.com, a video playing Rihanna’s “Work” begins. The frame is fixated on white popcorn ceiling until the beat drops and Joanne the Scammer appears.
Insert cry face emojis.
After telling Ri Ri to “shut the f*ck up,” Joanne explains why she created the site.
“I made this goddamn account. Because I am very pissed off. Drake? You acted like you were not at the VMAs. Only to surprise everyone, come out, and give Rihanna an award. Did you know I was there? Did you know I was there? Because I was. In my Kris Jenner wig. And you missed it. I’ve waited so long to take a selfie with you. And you weren’t there to take it. But you come out for Rihanna? I’m prettier, and more iconic, TBH. So fuck you, and our relationship is over, all right? Don’t email me again. Because I won’t respond. This website is a hoax, and now I can move on with my goddamn life.”
Touché Joanne. Touché.
If this is your first time being exposed to Joanne, she is a character created by Branden Miller, who’s grown wildly popular following hilarious viral videos shared by Amber Rose, Blac Chyna and more. Check out his more recent video here:
We encountered Joanne the Scammer at the 2016 VMAs and she gave us this special message.

30. If there’s ever been a standout creative and executive that I’ve patterned my trajectory after, it’s @iamdiddy. There’s absolutely nothing about the maestro, mogul and, sometimes, magician that’s not inspiring. Watching him lead his label through the soundtrack of my life last night was a moment one several levels. I experienced it at the right time in the right place. It fully birthed the new beast I’ve been incubating. It was a hell of a show. Thanks @iamdiddy. 🙌🏾
