As one of music’s biggest forces, naturally Rihanna finds herself the topic of intense debate. Is she actually talented? Can she even sing? Why is she so successful? These are questions which find themselves a staple on message boards, phone convo’s, BBM, and even right here on your favourite site and mine!

Ever keen to hear what the masses are thinking, That Grape Juice hit the streets of Louisville (on the eve of the release of the singer’s new single ‘We Found Love’) to find out just what the streets are saying about the Bajan sensation.

Hit ‘PLAY’ to get ‘The Word’ on Rihanna…

  8. KIM September 21, 2011

    I am not even great fans of either artist mentioned in this post but to me and many others will agree. it’s so obvious that if your review each others career, talent and abilities. Beyonce is not even supposed to be compared to rihanna, this is way off. don’t get me wrong i like some of rihanna’s music from the studio but people have to be more real!! Beyonce is highly honored and respected from the music industry.

  9. RocketBlair September 21, 2011

  16. Mo September 21, 2011

    I spit our my water when that girl said Ciara is the best singer and Beyoncé can’t sing. I’m done… Goodbye to the world. LOL. What is going on?

  17. Paul Rivas September 21, 2011

    Did everyone wore a blue shirt for this video? o.O

  18. bey’knight September 21, 2011

    im actually glad she mentioned Ci , now we know not to take her serious lmao and to the one asking us to go search for a utube video of Ciara singing, bull! why cant she showcase it on her albums?

    • DEVO September 21, 2011

      lol !!…say that again !!

    • Dave September 22, 2011

      She showcases it on all her album, she just doesn’t have a super strong voice. Ciara is a harmonic singer, if you really listen she can really lay down some good harmonies & melodies. Apparently you’re not really listening to her albums. I dont’ agree that Ciara is a better singer than Beyonce, but I think the girl was a bit delusional & meant Ciara is better than Rihanna, & a bit as far as singing.

  19. Robier September 21, 2011

    Ignorant….. This is why talent shows are f***** up too.

  20. The-Truth September 21, 2011

    Those comments were Soooo null and Void. Most people don’t know anything about the industry or how to rate someone’s talent. This video was insulting to music lovers. That vid was a Fail I demand a #RihDo for the queen

  21. The-Truth September 21, 2011

    I am also sick of people saying someone can’t sing just because they don’t sound a Jennifer Hudson Hollerin mess. Everybody doesn’t appreciate a Gospel voice

  22. james September 21, 2011

    Bey knight she does yall just think cause she don’t belt she can’t singshe has soft sweet vocals that I actually prefer over beys n rihs and anybody can sing on a cd dumbass but how many can do it live while dancing besides bey n ciara? If you want vocals on a cd check out I run it h**

  23. james September 21, 2011

    @ the truth thank you don’t nobody want to hear goes who sound like jhud n fanny all the damn time….

  24. @TEAMFOXYDONDIVA September 21, 2011

    F*** RIHANNA AKA RIHTARDDDDDDDDDDDD HARDDDDD

  25. james September 21, 2011

    And I don’t agree with what she said bey is the better vocalist of the three i just prefer cici vocals

  26. Jess September 21, 2011

    That video was a MESS! Ciara a good singer? GIRL! WHAT CIARA YOU LISTENING TOO? Eevn Rihanna is a WAY better singer than Ciara WAY! Beyonce is the best out of the 3! To even mention Ciara in there with Bey and Riri is just…

  27. Royalkev September 21, 2011

    Wow, this woman in blue actually think Bey can’t sing. Hmmmm, that’s quite interesting. I don’t know what to say about her ear, but to each their own. I like Cici, but I guess I’m not hearing the power in her vocals that this lady does.

    I love the other woman’s reasons for liking Rihanna though 1)”She has real pretty hair”, 2) “She’s like, laid back – She’s cool”, 3)”and She ain’t stuck up, like the rest of these singers out here”, 4) “and she can express her own style – and I just love her”… This is a woman that clearly loves talent. Enough said!

  28. BranCrayCray September 21, 2011

    I guess to each is own. I didn’t expect the one girl to say Beyonce wasn’t a good singer and Ciara was. Ciara IS a great singer though. I actually think she makes the best music out of Beyonce and Rihanna, you just have to look into it and clearly she has a pretty tone and voice.

  29. deidah September 21, 2011

    where the f*** do find these dumb people? lmao

  30. Speechless September 21, 2011

    Ciara IS a better singer than rihanna! You dont see her soundin off pitch and fallin on her ass when she performs at EVERY concert lmao!!!!

    • lele September 22, 2011

      The reason for that is dummy, she not singing it is her record. She can’t sing and dance at the same time. lmao

      • Dave September 22, 2011

        fail. Check her singing singing acapella of her own songs which she sings. & she has sung & dance at the same time, but she’s not always great doing it at the same time.

  31. JER September 21, 2011

    yes, let’s ask 5 ghettos b****** on the street corner about ANYTHING.

    4lop

  32. nick September 21, 2011

    What in the world are you guys doing in Louisville?!?! It’s my hometown and I’m here to visit for the week! http://nickssongoftheday.blogspot is my music industry blog- I have new opinion pieces on Nicole Scherzinger and Usher!

  33. Amer September 21, 2011

    agree with this,she change a lot but in worst way

  34. IT’S ALL GOOD!!! September 21, 2011

    WHAT???? CIARA CANT SING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. COMMANDEROFTHEDANCEFLOOR September 21, 2011

    when that girl said ciara sings better than beyonce and rihanna her comment became void. i am a riri stan and i know beyonce can perform better and her vocal range is better than many artist out there. but those two girls talking about how rihanna’s videos and music is dark obviously stoped paying attention to rihanna after rated r because they missed the whole loud era.

  36. mobwife September 21, 2011

    What kind of f*ckery is this? *Amy winehouse voice*

    Ri Ri has little to no talent! She can hold a tune I guess but she has no stage presence and did someone actually say she can move? FTW 0__o

    I agree with the ones who said she’s changed for the worse! She use to be cute and bubbly and bright. Now she’s just “assy” and trashy!!

    I will say this was quite entertaining!

  37. fAB IT September 21, 2011

    this post is a #fail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “beyonce isn t a good singer” b**** put your f****** life together another thing why in the hell in every single rihanna topic beyonce has to be mentioned ? why she isn t compared to alicia keys ? some people are so dumb

    • cindy September 21, 2011

      she is the threat. She is what every artist what to be like and maybe better. she is overachieved. she is the main target

  38. deon September 21, 2011

    There is no comparison of the three. What beyonce does with her voice they cannot even attempt. I guess some people need some dvd’s and performances. someone said rihanna is a great entertainer. DEAD.
    a RIHANNA stan knows better. A Ciara stan knows better. They all know that they cannot do half of what Beyonce can do on a stage and off. Just a pure natural. Why even compare, that’s disrespectful…..really people.
    tgj please delete that video.
    btw where is ciara, I didn’t even remember her.

    Thank god the music industry knows better, and beyonce has surpassed all that

  39. Justin September 21, 2011

    Patrick, you should’ve shut that camera off when that girl said Ciara is a better singer than Beyonce’!!!! I’m from Kentucky too, and I don’t know what half these people were talkin bout! BEYONCE GOES HARD! ALWAYS! These other chicks need to SIT DOWN!

  40. Ci’Yonce September 22, 2011

    Beyonce, Ciara, and Rihanna are all in their OWN lanes. Comparing them are irrelevant. Even I don’t like Rihanna that much but giving credit where it’s due I think she’s here to evolve and change. NEWFLASH to some Bey stans. GET OVER IT. Not everyone is going to like Bey. Beyonce has accomplished in her career so getting your feelings riled up because people think otherwise of her singing is not going to hurt Bey because she knows people are not going to get into her music. Some of you fans take things too personally. Opinions are assholes. As a Ci and Bey stan I know that those two have made an impact in the music industry. Rihanna has herself but that doesn’t neccessarily in my eyes convince me that she’s talented. I think her next record my surprise us. Never been a fan but I think she’s trying to cut down the genric bubble fast food she’s been putting out in a while and do some deep artistry on the next album. Oh yeah for the ppl bitching over the fact that some people think Ciara can sing. That chick had her opinion and you get all RILED UP. LMAO. Like what is it that you think someone who is not a powerhouse can’t sing? She’s no powerhouse vocalist bit she shas evolved and shown depth in her voice. She sings better than some of half these chicks who over-belt and scream and holla every verse.

  41. lele September 22, 2011

    CIARA CAN SING? LMAO!! LIKE IT OR NOT RHI RHI HAS CONSTANTLY BEEN ON TOP OF HER GAME AND STILL CLIMBING. SO OBVIOUSLY SHE IS DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. I HAVE NOT AS OF YET SEEN HER JUST SELL 37K ALBUMS.

  42. twezzy89 September 22, 2011

    @lele LMAO!!!! NEWS FU**ING FLASH CIARA IS HAVING LABEL ISSUES & IS CURRENTLY GETTING HER ISH BACK ON TRACK! CIARA CAN SING, THE REASON WHY PPL SAY SHE CANT SING, IS SIMPLY BCUZ SHE NOT SITTING PRETTY ON THE CHARTS, BUT WAIT TIL SHE GETS HER MANAGEMENT & LABEL RIGHT, ITLL BE A WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY!

  43. nice_gurl September 22, 2011

    I like some of Rihanna’s songs, like CKB and Cheers, but I hardly ever watch her performances because they are not very entertaining

    How can someone say Beyonce isn’t a good singer? Her vocal range is insane. I think some people think Bey only does songs like Crazy In Love and Single Ladies. The songs that truly bring out her vocals are songs like Speechless, Dangerously In Love, I Was Here, I Care, I Miss You, Smash Into You, That’s Why You’re Beautiful. I could list so many.

  44. KAPO September 22, 2011

    Can we f****** have a video of something else than Rihanna or Beyonce ?? I DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT S*** ! Only gay people and girls like these girls.

  45. peach361 September 22, 2011

    listen b****** if the girl feel Ciara can sang and Beyonce can’t its her opinion why the hell your pressed. I know a lot of people feel Beyonce can’t sang and like Ciara singing better. I like Rhianna but i credit her team for her being successful. Love all 3 ladies.

  46. V September 23, 2011

    When that girl said the only person who can really sing is Ciara and Beyonce can’t…… lorddd i was ready to click out of this damn screen! Ughhh I feel like sometimes the people that get interviewed for “The Word’ know absolutely nothing about music and the industry. There have been better people interviewed in past editions… Like those girls that said Rihanna is too dark, like I’m not a big ol fan but I;m gonna defend her and say she was dark that ONE album, Rated R, and switches up her style frequently. This past album was actually really bright and cherry…..

  47. tk 28 September 24, 2011

    i don’t like rihanna candy apple songs and the music is really wack,it’s not r and b or pop i don’t know what in the hell it is. but it sounds like white girl s***.
