rihanna times 100 gala2 Horrid : Rihanna Live At Time 100 Gala

For whatever reason, someone has put it into Rihanna‘s head that she has a good voice.

Yes, call us cruel if you want to, but after seven years of half hearted live shows and bleating over unsuspecting dance cuts, it’s time to be honest:

Mariah in ‘Glitter‘ > Rihanna Live.

Case in point?

Peep her performing ‘We Found Love‘ at the the Time 100 Gala on Tuesday night below…

Recently admitting she rarely has time to rehearse, sets like these are a reminder as to why almost ten years in- she still lacks the regard GaGa has garnered in half the time.

It seems, that with the folk over at ROC fully aware of her ‘shortcomings’, their plan is to pump as much money out of her while they can by putting out LP’s each year.

Realizing, that unlike a BeyonceAlexandra or Aguilera, Fenty’s voice isn’t strong to enough to stand the test of time- strong enough to keep the public interested if she ever decided to take a lengthy break, or decided to do a Celine-esque Vegas show well into her forties.

So for that, we hope Riri is stacking up those coins for her own wallet, once her chalice of wigs, #1s and tabloid inches runs dry.

Your thoughts?

    I’m not a stan of hers but I don’t think she did THAT bad. A little pitchy here and there, but she’s still young. She still has time to perfect it. They all can’t be Mariahs.

    one of her best performance of that song today i feel that a requirement to work for TGJ is to not like rihanna. If you listen she baring her heart on that song performing and she did a great job if you asked me i love this version?perfrmance better than the studio. TGJ really irritates with their bias opinions. They have never gave rihanna her credit except for on idol and aol session for rated R and even still it had a shady tone. they even tried to shade her battleship performance thats garnering rave reviews

    f*** Outta Here

    I am sick and tired of TGJ bashing Rihanna, she is the biggest female in music at the moment and you cant keep comparing her to the likes of Beyonce and Christina because she is a completely different artist to them. She is an amazing artist and performer and i think TGJ needs too stop bashing Rihanna ad take a reality check. i think TGJ may be just jealous because the people running TGJ will never be as successful as Rihanna

    The grape know all about what she has done. They follow her ass like a second skin. They even know that her ass will be living over there with them for three months.
    Grape that would be a good time for you all to do dinner. She will be there for the shooting of her fashion show shes going to executive produce. See she just keep right on trucking no matter what is written about her.

    I heard through the grape vine that jay was getting ready to launch something big
    on face book or twitter i don’t know which one. I guess the rest of you heard that beyonces most beautiful woman had more to do with how fat her $$$$$ is then her enhanced great beauty. Many tries to say that Rihanna is ugly, well there’s a picture of her with her mom, that they took when she was honored the other night and she is the same as she was when she hit the US shores back in 2005. And with her great sculped looks she has right now just wonder how much better she would look with a say,,,nose job. Many say she has had enhancements but she has not. And if she does she is not scared to speak on it and you all know that.

Shes not that bad at least she doesn’t lip synch Music history always has pop divas each decade with ‘just ok’ vocals i.e. Janet Jackson, Britney Spears now its RiRi’s time and unlike the other 2 or many otheres in that bracket she attempts to perform with live vocals. So kudos Rihanna!

    Shyt i can name twenty who can hit her songs as well if not better
    than she can, but they wasn’t chosen, now were they? Remember
    me, nor rihanna nor her navy has ever tried to claim that she was
    the best, but she can hold her own right with the big girls. And no
    matter how many all around the net tries to put her out of the game
    the coaches or forever and a day throwing her ass right back off
    into the mix. And the haters love poking fun and laughting at her
    and she is still getting paid right on.

    And if they or not making fun of her bleaping they or calling her every name
    in the book and throwing everything at her but the kitchen sink. Dam it would be hard to make it with all of the negative vibes, she get on a daily but it only tends to make her stronger. She has long ago grown a double thick skin and she can deal with the bull day in and day out that just shows many that she is here to stay. They talked the same shyt with madonna, janet and cher and look at them now.As long as she do as well as kelly, nicki, rita, and solange shes good in my book.

    A lot of the negativity toward Rihanna is because she’s from
    the Islands and it seem unfair for her to go to the US and show
    say beyonce up. Rihanna is getting her share of that shine, as
    a matter of fact if Jay ass don’t buy another spot on that Time 100
    List as some of bey’s ass wipes has said is how rih got there, if
    he don’t buy the kang a spot on that list, his ass is going to have
    hell to pay. The time list is way bigger than anything Rih has ever
    accomplished before. Perhaps this will be a turning point and serve
    as a plus to shake up all the other great things Rihanna is capable
    of accomplishing in her life time.

    This is to funny she is copying Rita and Jessi J for her own song, PRICELESS she should be a shamed of her self and you stans need to stop getting upset when the truth keeps slapping you in your face all the time not a hit and skip but all the time (FUNNY).. Let’s be real she was standing still and we all know that’s the only way she can do a attempt of sounding slightly somewhat OK, not good, but OK. Rihanna is all about her image and the crowds applause said a great deal quick and short! Stop getting mad at people cause they see this girl for what she truly is, an image that Navy produced. She did less than the almost 3 mins and it was not all singing she has mastered the art of the illusion nothing more!!! It was not horrid but as usual is was not great and that’s where she should be after all this time BUT DUE TO LACK OF TALENT, NOT!!!.

    If a rihanna fan cannot admit that this was messy. The industry is really coming to an end. Damn when xtina messed up the anthem her fanbase did not hold back anything, but all in all christina is great but rihanna is bad all the time. Does she really know about vocals. I told yall there is someone in the studio teaching her how to sing and stay on key. Thanks to the engineer. I know about vocals I did music at school. I am not a talented singer and I can tell you that was all over the place. It is kinda embarrassing to be at an event like that and sound so horrible. TGJ is speaking the truth, it is not their fault the truth is always bad. Get over it. Rihanna cannot do acoustic and she is standing at the mic and struggling to hit a note. I guess Rita and Jesse really made her feel bad on her own song. Respect the artist who can rearrange songs and sing them effortlessly and not sing the same version of their song performance after performance with no vocal creativity

    I’m not a fan of Rihanna, but I like a few of her songs. Personally I think she should be left alone. Rihanna has never ever claimed to have vocal capabilities, because if she herself knows that vocals isn’t her area of specialty. Even tho she isn’t on the vocal level of Beyonce, Alexandra and co, people need to chill and stop bashing her vocals, because TGJ is good at exaggerating things and making it seem as if she’s the worst of the worst vocalists. Vocally, Rihanna can sing better than Janet, Britney, Katy, GaGa, Ke$ha and many more. Granted, she would never have won a singing competition, but since that’s not her area of specialty, y’all need to stop bashing her vocals. Rihanna is an entertaining artists, not a vocal kind of artist.

    You people are sad. I’v never seen people so intent on trying to shade someone of this degree. This was really beautiful. I really appreciate when Rih slows it down. Not many artists sing live. Yeah, she’s no Beyonce or Mariah, but her voice is not meant to be. I wish this could be an unbiased site. For an artist to be so “bad,” they never quit reporting on her.

    I remember one day last week, there were 4 Rihanna posts straight! Sigh….they just need the hits. I understand.

    I am sure glad that Rihanna chose work over welfare, this
    way she can always expand her horizon. She might not ever
    be aretha, whitney or mariah, but it’s all good because she might
    not ever be dolly pardon, gail evans, or roy rogers either, but shes
    still in the game, big time. Give jay a call and let him tell you what he
    think about her and her performances. And then give Eminen, calvin,

    OK, i started listening and had to stop. I read the comments and saw some people who are not stans say it was good so I decided to continue. Seriously, this was not good. She asked the crowd if they were feeling her and they gave a halfhearted response. I don’t know, but I think her voice is not horrible but just better suited to songs like man down. I have to say though, she is ONE BRAVE girl. I could never show myself up again and again in that regard UNLESS she really believes the hype. If she does not believe the hype, then I will venture to say that she is a very unhappy person in private having to pretend to be great when she knows that she is not.

    *Meh…* Thanks allot – I’ll now have to bleach my clothes and burn these brand-new Jordans – that “gamey” ‘curry-goat c** juice’ leaves an eternity of regret and funky sorrow..

    ..Worst-yet came the parts when she tried her most to reach out from her core with tender emotion: “…are y’all feelin’ me?” ..You’re then waiting for that sure-to-come flood of emotions that fills you up; cleanses you, and lifts you up – on-high – with Rihanna..

    ..But, alas: nothing..

    Rihanna reached deepest into her “core” and gave us..nothing!

    Rihanna: an all-engulfing, infinite void that that reaches outstretched invisible tentacles to wrap herself around the necks of the unsuspecting, weary, and even curious bystanders; succubus tentacles that grab hold with ‘break-neck force’ and snap you into an ever-falling abyss of gimmickry, lies and no-talent hackry..

    The Universe in its infinite, and just-in-time wisdom: Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, and ‘Rihanna: face of $450-Million disaster-at-sea': ‘Battleship”‘.

    @VeGas Girl: you’re right about it being her job to sing. But u seem to not understand the fact that top 40 radio isn’t concerned about great vocalists. There are different kind of artists; some artists are “vocal artists” e.g Usher, Beyonce, John Legend, J-Hud, Adele, and co. Then there are “radio artists” such as Rihanna, Akon, etc. There are “performing artists”(who aren’t necessarily very good vocally) e.g Lady GaGa, Chris Brown, etc. Rihanna is simply not a “vocal artist” tho she can sing to some extent. Is she a good singer? Hell yes. Great vocalist? Hell no; and she herself knows that she isn’t very gifted vocally. But she has made up for it by being edgy and making good music videos. Pple need to stop bashing her for her area of weakness(I.e vocals), but she definitely can sing to some extent, cuz if she couldn’t sing at all, she wouldn’t have been able to record California King Bed, Russian Roulette.

They really are flogging a dead horse here, Rihanna fans aren’t deaf and the shade is getting old. If she worked on her vocals more, lazy cow that she is, she could be an adequate live singer. She is fine in her comfort range but struggles with both high and low notes, she needs to find her own way of singing when she is performing live.
