Taylor Swift's been getting a lot of attention for inviting fellow celebrities onstage for her 1989 Tour and into her ever-growing squad, but don't expect Rihanna to get in on the action.

In her new NME cover story, Rihanna told the magazine that it just wouldn't make sense for her to get together with Swift. 

"I don't think I would [join Taylor on stage]," Rihanna said. "I just don't think it makes sense. I don't think our brands are the same: I don't think they match, I don't think our audiences are the same. In my mind, she's a role model; I'm not."

Just an idea, but how about an anti-hero squad, Rih Rih?
