riri in capri Hot Shots: Rihanna Glows In Capri

Rihanna was a picture of health hours ago, striking a pose with friends in Capri yesterday.

Indeed, while her seventh album is being crafted for her, the nocalist was caught partying it up on a yacht in seemingly high spirits.

All this, months before she is set to launch a 2013 world tour following from the so so received ‘Loud Tour’.

Ever the hard worker eh?

        so so tour huh. Well if so so makes 90 million, then i’ll take that anyday. Go on with the shade TGJ. And rihanna does work hard. Having a strong work ethic, showing up for her events, being reliable and committed to her brand and endorsements is what she do. If she parties on the weekend, or on vacation, she’s entitled too, just like everyone else. And I never see partying all the time ever paid any bills, so she had to be working sometime in order for her to make it onto forbes list of money makers. Some of you need to realize that hating don’t pay bills, so you need to hop off rihanna and go make your mula.

      Oh shut the hell up. That’s why there is a career field called song writing. They have to get paid too don’t they. Rihanna is a singer. Everyone has his or her part to play. Lets not forget she’s executive producer on many of her projects, and has her hand in many other industries besides music. Her endorsements, business deals with fashion houses, vita coco etc all contribute to her overall brand. So if she’s partying, she could afford to do so, cause b**** is well paid while you remain bitter and broke.

      @Lax that’s what I think @stoney is saying.
      Singers like Rihanna are chasing money rather than perfecting their art. Back in the day if you were in the music business you had to make sure you were the best at your craft because audiences would not spend their hard earned cash on b******* like they do today. In the past if you couldn’t write music you had to make sure your vocals were on POINT. If you couldn’t sing, those dance moves had to be OUT OF THIS WORLD. In today’s music scene all you need is a pretty face. lack of creativity & Self worth and your good to go. I.e “If i could make 90 million in 6 months i’d be a puppet too….”

        And another thing many of these artist like beyonce for instance never ever put a PEN in their hands. Beyonce can demand credits to a song on her name along because of her star power. When your money is big you can do like beyonce and demand a certain amount of publishing rights up front.

        Often times many writers or paid a substantial
        amout of money up front to REMOVE their names
        from a song all together. I noticed that ESTER dean
        won all kinds of writing awards for some of the top hits
        and she is a writer for Rihanna’s s&m, Rude boy and only girl and those songs did great and now JAYZ have got ESTER hired to his label. Beyonce will be the best writer in the WORLD when they get through paying ESTER DEAN hush money and they have money to blow, burn or throw to the wind! And these bytches got nerver to be jealous of rihanna and her big head….dahhhh.

      Asalaamu alaikum you were brought to my attention so don’t go thinking that i check for these celebrities and most of all stan for any of them.
      I was wondering since ramadan has started and you claim to be a muslim are you going to stop stanning for these taghut/false idols and return back to your Rabb.I mean how can you stan for these kind of people that promote everything that’s contrary to the deen of Islam.I speak to you as a convert to Islam,I’ve had a life that i’m pretty sure as an egptian guy you have never encountered.But Alhamdulilah i was guided.The deen of islam is a deen of advice so it’s my duty or i’ll be questioned on yawmah qiyaamah.
      stop stan and checking for these celebrities because they surely aint aiding you to strive for Jannah.
      This is also for the Muslims that frequent these blogs you know who you are!

      Look that’s you opinion about religions created by men.Some obviously are however, i don’t believe mine to be.Anyway this is drifting from my intial point as i clearly stated i was refering to a fellow Muslim who hopefully understands that creed of his religion and what it requires from us.You claim this is for fun etc we all like to have fun but still life is deeper than that and if you don’t like what i’m saying then tough! Man is not perfect thats’ why there’s such thing as Tawbah(forgiveness).There are certain things in islam which are imperative and an obligation from one Muslim to another.Therefore if i spot something wrong then it’s my duty to advice,i can’t force but advice then i’m free from accountability with my Lord.You may well not comprehend all of this and it may be a lil too serious for you but POP ROYALTY hopefully will as he claims he’s a Muslim.As i stated someone made me aware of him,i don’t see why you have to interrupt my conversation with him when you know i wasn’t addressing you plus you aren’t Muslim so this doesn’t apply to you.I’m sure he is capable of answering for himself.I doubt he needs a middle man so we need not converse especially if it isn’t constructive.Thanks.

    Rihanna is always working. All though this era she did the least. Its just that the site you guys read (this) is a tabloid. They do not publish info on how she was in the studio with neyo, timbaland and many other working together on the album, her tireless work producing a T.V. show, her rehearsels, interviews, and all the s*** she has to go through.

    This article is false to the extreme. She is not working on her album right now, so nothing is being done on it. She is credited for many things like, executive/artist/lyrical, producer, cowriter, voalist and many other things on her album but this site doesent DO facts. Her Loud tour was not “so-so” received. It received a WAVE of positive reviews. Thatgrapejuice just didnt like it!

    “RIHANNA
    Rihanna is cliche of everything that has ever been disingenuous about the music business. A soulless Barbie Doll, with plastic doll parts, who was plucked off the streets of no where and put on–simply because the outfit was her size. In other words: commerce…created and puppet mastered by money grubbing music executives as a tool to co-opt what is currently popular for fast cash, and pandered to the dingiest of music listeners who are not discerning enough to care.

    You have to give the label, the management, the A&R people, the songwriters, the producers, the directors and the thousand other magicians involved their credit for being savvy enough to outfit this garden-variety debutante with material and promotion to keep her afloat…but let’s be real, there is nothing ‘special’ or ‘unique’ about Rihanna, herself. She has little talent, no personality or strong image, nor does she command the stage. Anyone could have been cast in the role Rihanna plays; she just lucked out. For all intents and purposes, Rihanna is akin to a can of Hormel Chili; basically a canned product with a label (and a ‘sell by’ date) on it.

    The bottom line is that Rihanna was not built to last and is very “replaceable.” This is why she does not take breaks, and repetitiously puts out a generic by-the-numbers pop album every year. Being that she has little ‘star power,’ in order to sustain her momentum she has to continually strike while the iron is hot, while employing a multitude of petty ‘stunts’ to get attention (tacky wigs, brothel attire, referencing her tumultuous relationship Chris Brown years later.) The moment she sits down to catch her breath, ten more record label assembled chippies will be thrown into the ring and the last two standing will be the next “Rihanna.”

    In 2012, no more do we need windup doll acts like Rihanna getting on camera and posing like an androidian cast-off from America’s Next Top Model, while vapidly bleating over an empty dance track, hanging around longer than the fifteen minutes that is typically allotted for manufactured pop stars such as her. It’s just getting sad now, and the quality is dipping. Gone are the pseudo-interesting songs like “Umbrella,” now she is peddling random, monotonous dead air like “We Found Love.” The girl has run her course; at this point she is on autopilot and is fast becoming the equivalent of a skipping record.”

        Behind the ludicrous and attention-seeking Halloween costumes, the obnoxiously overblown music videos, the swagger jacking of Madonna’s personality, and the conspicuous plot to manipulate the socially awkward and misfits of society into thinking that they have a voice (and are empowered) through her, is a bunch of banal and contrived gibberish heavily propped by media hype that does not live up to it. What began as a bouncy, pixyish, one-woman-show-esque version of what the Spice Girls did in the late 90s has now become an egotistical, overproduced–yet still oddly generic–mess of grating sounds that is irritating to listen to and takes itself too seriously.

        Once upon a time this character that is ‘Lady Gaga’ may have provided a cheeky and quirky contrast to what had been the model of what was popular, and it may have been quasi-endearing, but when pop stars infuse that much camp into their image, at a certain point the irony *will* get old and lose its charm. In the meantime, this woman has literally crammed about a decades worth of gimmicks, put-on’s and media saturation into a three year span. We have seen her show up kite high, in meat dresses, with horns attached to her head, dressed as a man, with discharged gay soldiers as her escorts, etc., etc. The ‘shtick’ is old. There are only so many heavy-handed stunts you can use to dumbfound the public into noticing before they become either hostile or jaded, and a backlash ensues.

        Lady Gaga has always been a ‘character’ for show, but she has become a caricature and a parody of herself. No longer is it “refreshing,” abstract or inventive; it is now tired and dated. Overexposure is killing the cat and quite frankly Gaga is losing her relevance. By making herself into such a sneaky little cartoon who is force-fed to the public in obscene dosages, she has backed herself into a corner. The only thing left for her to do at this point is to throw on a pair of jeans and act normal, but how boring would that be for someone who named herself ‘Lady Gaga’ and made being strange her ticket to fame? She was here; she dominated the world of music and got her press, but the milk is now sour. The writing was on the wall when dowdily dressed and anything-but-flashy Adele c*** blocked what was supposed to be a Gaga-dominating 2011. Kids do not listen to her, it is not “cool” to be a walking freak show…and quite frankly it is not cool to like Lady Gaga now.

        KATY PERRY
        Take a Lady Gaga song; subtract about $5000 from the recording budget…slow down the tempo just slightly…remove some of the excessive over production…make the lyrics cornier…add harsher vocals…then pander it to an episode of Hanna Montana or Glee and you basically have Katy Perry: a formulaic, trite and annoying blend of valley girl, wannabe Lolita and fake rebel.

        Ultimately, she comes off like a robotic singing Kardashian cousin, while posturing a pseudo rogue personality. It is as if some record producer said: “Let’s dress her up like a slutty Barbie Doll, autotune the f*** out of her, and she will sell!” Quite frankly, her music is dorky and sounds custom made for middle school dances. The popularity of it can only be explained by pondering that this is the sort of thing that just happens when fourteen year old girls and college-aged gay guys join forces to take iTunes hostage.

        With five overplayed chart topping singles from her latest album, radio has just assumed that she is what people want to hear and therefore arbitrarily gotten behind every song she has put over the last year and a half…which not only makes her played the hell out, but pushes her into the realm of being a ‘fad’ (think Fergie circa 2007.) And we all know fads die hard. One more bite from Katy and people will begin to regurgitate. Katy Perry is very ’2011,’ we do not need her in 2012.

        ——————————————————————————–

        KE$HA
        There has always been vapid, throw-away, hedonistic pop tarts meant to not take seriously and to…:::blank stare:::…have ‘fun’ with, but the presence of Ke$ha pushes that concept to an offensive low and makes one literally want to weep for that state of music. There is simply no justification for…for…this.

        Ke$ha is basically a latter day Samantha Fox; the embodiment of ‘drunk s***’ pop, whose overall persona is akin to an inebriated college co-ed who jumps on a table at a fraternity party and dances with a cup in her hand. Her music sounds like an ugly combination of a blender, an electric carving knife and a v******* set to a corny euro-dance beat – all while she babbles and burps her way through the verses and dizzily chants hooks that are just dumb. Basically, what we have here are the ingredients of someone who should have been a one-hit wonder. If Ke$ha only had had one hit in her idiotically infectious song “Tik Tok,” she would not have been quite as bothersome. It is when an annoying, and frankly stupid, formula that should have only been used for a one-off novelty hit becomes the design for two or three more inexplicable hits after that it is time to pull out a wooden stake.

        The truth, however, is that Ke$ha is merely a blip (or a symptom) of her era. She is the byproduct of the shallowest sides of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and sleazy reality shows like Jersey Shore, where intoxicated brats who have to be carried out of the party are considered entertaining. This girl happened because pop culture became engrossed with seeing plastic young people turning off their brains, having reckless ‘fun’ and behaving like idiots for attention. Her mantra is abundantly lame now. Even in an era of puffed up hedonism, Ke$ha is still an embarrassment to it. She came out, exploited the scene and scored a couple of inane novelty hits, now it is time for this cretin to be dropped back into obscurity where she belongs. To be blunt: Ke$ha being allowed to breathe in 2012 is frankly unacceptable.

        ——————————————————————————–

        LMFAO
        Why a group like LMFAO is out for 2012 is pretty self-explanatory. The shelf life on a campy, silly, ‘of the moment’ act such as this is about as long as the lifespan of a mosquito. With a few goofy club hits that will age disgracefully and quickly fade from the pop culture lexicon, these clowns are – for all intents and all purposes – a modern day version of 2 In a Room/Right Said Fred. The dimwitted and ridiculous party anthems that they have thrown out are very “summer 2011.” This group is ready-made for a VH1 ‘Remember Them?/Where Are They Now?’ countdown special in a few years. They will not adapt to change, and just as soon as the era they rose to prominence in is over, they are done.

        ——————————————————————————–

        Bruno Mars
        Every time I see Bruno Mars, I think of Duckie in Pretty in Pink. Mars’ whole image is reminiscent of a cheesy hipster in a 1980s teen flick, who brings a guitar to school with him everyday and tries to get that frigid wallflower girl to go out with him by serenading her with stale little ditties.

        His music likes to masquerade itself as being breezy, sweet, romantic and genuine, but is actually a bunch of over the top and offensively melodramatic fluff. The lyrics to his songs are jam-packed with desperate cliches and/or trite pickup lines that attempts to pass themselves off as clever wordplay (“like a bullet straight through my brain…” The f*** is that?!) The hyperactive choruses to his songs, meanwhile, are grating…and the production of the actual tracks sounds like a bastardized blend of bad emo mixed with adult contemporary pop, and is very yawn-worthy.

        To put it simply: Bruno Mars is a dork who makes a Hallmark card seem edgy and is basically a faux-urban version of Chris Isaak for the Twitter generation. While I can appreciate that he seems like one of the few who does not play that overly synth-pop card that the Ke$ha’s and LMFAO’s of the music world continue to barf, he is the opposite extreme and it is as irritating. In 2012, we do not need this cheesy wedding singer on the radio.

        ——————————————————————————–

        JUSTIN BIEBER
        Not much needs to be said about the Bieb and why he’s out for 2012, because it is pretty obvious. He is the cliche teen pop star that we have seen various incarnations of before (from Pat Boone…to Lief Garret…to Tiffany…to Hanson…to the Jonas Brothers) that comes around every ten years or so to and make homely little girls squeal and guys of all ages vomit. The cloud of ‘Played Out’ has been subtly hovering over this kids head for a while now. The truth is that Justin’s marketability peaked in 2010; in 2011 he just continued to linger for the time being. His original fan base of twelve year old girls whose wrists were being fitted for purity rings have already begun to outgrow him and in another two years they will disavow having ever been a fan. Give up the ghost and stop pretending…Justin serves no purpose in 2012.

        ——————————————————————————–

        JASON DERULO
        It is time to stop pretending with this guy as well. Merely a poppier version of Chris Brown, Jason Derulo’s career was born out of Brown, himself, becoming a media pariah after he whooped Rihanna’s ass and the world of music – for whatever reason – accepting him as a replacement to fill his slot. Derulo, himself, does not stand out in a crowd nor does he have the makings of a being a star. He basically reminds you of a hopeful at a talent show. His music, meanwhile, is radio filler that is immediately forgettable once the song is over.

        With Brown seemingly recovering from his detention, there is really no reason for this extra Michael Jackson-wannabe to continue lingering about.

        ——————————————————————————–

        TAIO CRUZ
        I liked Taio Cruz better almost twenty years ago when his name was Haddaway. Another momentary seat filling hit maker (ala Ke$ha, LMFAO, Jason Derulo, etc.) in this banal world of electro-pop; this guy is a bland no-name, whose music is just cheap, characterless radio-filler that has zero substance and is no more interesting than the commercials.

        There will always be second-tier flavors of the month, who are only in the room because they snuck in while the door wasn’t being watched. In 2012, however, the timer is up on Cruz. Top 40 radio does not need this soon-to-be hasbeen’s brand of empty, depth-less dance music that has the audacity to posture arrogance, despite his being cheesier than a pack of Kraft singles.

        ——————————————————————————–

        ELECTROPOP AND DANCE MUSIC
        What is ultimately out for 2012 is electro-pop and dance music. Flaky, unoriginal and galling; there is nothing new, creative, interesting or forward moving about this gaudy thumpa-thumpa b******* that has contaminated the radio and dominated the charts for the past three years. Stripped down, all it is is a watery rehash of early-mid 90s club music recycled and repackaged to a generation of teenagers whose birth just missed it the first time and therefore don’t know any better, while aging club kids bask in its revamp. It is basically akin to the demonstration music on a Casio keyboard, is about as deep as a fishbowl and caters to dorks. In the meantime, hacks like Flo Rida and Pitbull have done a terrible job of recreating what C+C Music Factory did 20 years ago and instead only offer a bastardized version of it.

        With headache-inducing dance songs about drinking, partying, sexing and generally being ‘awesome’ (while autotuned past the point of making any sense)–the music and pop culture landscape of the past three or four years has been a shameless era of instant fame; where people who can’t even pretend to have talent become famous for doing absolutely nothing, other than showing up and being an attention w****. It just shows that the science of promotion can be dangerously effective, but enough is enough. A sporadic dance song or two on the radio is fine, but the world of music does not need to dominated by this mindless, hyper-tempo’d drivel that all sounds the same and basically encourages its listeners to turn their brains off while queening out to it.

        The bottom line is that this phase of music is not, and was never, cool. It merely served as a diversion from what had been popular before it; one that was shockingly easy to sell. Mission accomplished. This warble is now stale. In 2012 we need not be served more of this irritating bargain-basement electro junk. It is time for sleeker, more serious and thought-provoking music made by artists who are noticeably more talented to return to prominence, while dance and club music returns to the clubs. We have been partying since 2008; the party is over.

      Last Girl On Earth Tour was still finishing up earlier this year, but that didn’t stop Rihanna from announcing her biggest and most successful tour yet, Loud Tour. The tours consisted of over a hundred arena dates this year, including a record-breaking 10 sold-out London O2 dates due to demand, Rock In Rio headliner, and her first stadium concert in Barbados. The tour, featuring over two dozen of her biggest hits, was acclaimed by critics and applauded by fans. Being a globe-trotting superstar hasn’t side-tracked Rihanna from continuing her efforts in Philanthropy however. In fact, she was honored at DKMS 5th Annual Gala for her tireless work in the fight against Leukemia.

        “RIHANNA
        Rihanna is cliche of everything that has ever been disingenuous about the music business. A soulless Barbie Doll, with plastic doll parts, who was plucked off the streets of no where and put on–simply because the outfit was her size. In other words: commerce…created and puppet mastered by money grubbing music executives as a tool to co-opt what is currently popular for fast cash, and pandered to the dingiest of music listeners who are not discerning enough to care.

        You have to give the label, the management, the A&R people, the songwriters, the producers, the directors and the thousand other magicians involved their credit for being savvy enough to outfit this garden-variety debutante with material and promotion to keep her afloat…but let’s be real, there is nothing ‘special’ or ‘unique’ about Rihanna, herself. She has little talent, no personality or strong image, nor does she command the stage. Anyone could have been cast in the role Rihanna plays; she just lucked out. For all intents and purposes, Rihanna is akin to a can of Hormel Chili; basically a canned product with a label (and a ‘sell by’ date) on it.

        The bottom line is that Rihanna was not built to last and is very “replaceable.” This is why she does not take breaks, and repetitiously puts out a generic by-the-numbers pop album every year. Being that she has little ‘star power,’ in order to sustain her momentum she has to continually strike while the iron is hot, while employing a multitude of petty ‘stunts’ to get attention (tacky wigs, brothel attire, referencing her tumultuous relationship Chris Brown years later.) The moment she sits down to catch her breath, ten more record label assembled chippies will be thrown into the ring and the last two standing will be the next “Rihanna.”

        In 2012, no more do we need windup doll acts like Rihanna getting on camera and posing like an androidian cast-off from America’s Next Top Model, while vapidly bleating over an empty dance track, hanging around longer than the fifteen minutes that is typically allotted for manufactured pop stars such as her. It’s just getting sad now, and the quality is dipping. Gone are the pseudo-interesting songs like “Umbrella,” now she is peddling random, monotonous dead air like “We Found Love.” The girl has run her course; at this point she is on autopilot and is fast becoming the equivalent of a skipping record.”

    Rihanna is so beautiful, she has such a nice body. Some artists are way too old to flaunt their nasty body and that is why they should keep on having fake babies with ex drug dealers whilst destroying their hair with ugly nasty blonde weaves.

    Rihanna is a true artist, she has everything an artist with the X factor needs in the 21st century, hot body, beautiful face, beautiful unique voice, personality and stage presence. This is why every producer, song writer, sound engineer…etc is rushing and flying about to work with Rihanna, simply because she is the baddest chick in the game and everyone better deal.

    Rihanna, always makes the music business so interesting, different, fun, exciting, new, unique and fresh. Every album she puts out, I cannot wait to hear what new things she has in store for us and she always and I mean ALWAYS delivers. She is the most consistent artist in the game today and I cannot wait to see and hear what is coming next. Rihanna is here to snatch wigs, weaves, lace-fronts so your favs better start ordering that special batch of super glue and stainless steel thread because she (Rihanna) is going to snatch.

    Sam,

    Yesterday, you were fawning over the billboard chart, you were mocking Rihanna ‘ moderate hit’ Well, that hit is STILL in the top. You failed to mention Rita Ora chart number…….RITA ORA HAS NOW BEEN ON BILLBOARD FOR 8 WEEKS – 2 MONTHS. AND SHE IS AT 67. ONLY 67 – SHE HAS NEVER BROKEN OUT IF THE TOP 60 – SHE HAS NOT EVEN REACHED 60.

    LOL LOL LOL

    IN terms if Rihanna, she has the best body in the music industry. Beyonce never had a killer body like this. Beyonce could not go on a YACHT and just pose like this. Beyonce look unconfident on the beach, she always covered her hips with a sarong. Rih has a lean toned curvy body like Jessica Alba.

    Killer bodies help make women famous. JLO, Salma, Kim Kardashian,Eva Mendes, Jessica Alba, Gisele, Halle Berry – these women are not the MOST talented in their field, but die to their exotic beauty and KILLER BODIES – They are PURE A LIST.

    This why Rita Ora will never become a global s** symbol SUPERSTAR. Apart from having no star quality , basic singing voice , lines and wrinkles, etc. But, she is not a s** symbol – whites say she looks like a man in drag. I refuse to believe she is 21.

    Rita Ora will never the sexiest women in the world. Rih had the goods from Day one.

        All what you have said it right……But you have said it about the wrong person. You mean Rita ora and her career – lack of career. Eureka! You have crack the code to why Rita Ora is a global flop. Did u know she has never broken out the AMERICAN TOP 60?

        NOW WE KNOW WHY………….

        Rita Ora is cliche of everything that has ever been disingenuous about the music business. A soulless Barbie Doll, with plastic doll parts, who was plucked off the streets of no where and put on–simply because the outfit was her size. In other words: commerce…created and puppet mastered by money grubbing music executives as a tool to co-opt what is currently popular for fast cash, and pandered to the dingiest of music listeners who are not discerning enough to care

        ou have to give the label, the management, the A&R people, the songwriters, the producers, the directors and the thousand other magicians involved their credit for being savvy enough to outfit this garden-variety debutante with material and promotion to keep her afloat…but let’s be real, there is nothing ‘special’ or ‘unique’ about RiTA, herself. She has little talent, no personality or strong image, nor does she command the stage. Anyone could have been cast in the role RiTA plays; she just lucked out. For all intents and purposes, RITA is akin to a can of Hormel Chili; basically a canned product with a label (and a ‘sell by’ date) on it.

        The bottom line is that RiTA ORA was not built to last and is very “replaceable.” This is why she does not take breaks, and repetitiously puts out a generic by-the-numbers pop album every year. Being that she has little ‘star power,’ in order to sustain her momentum she has to continually strike while the iron is hot, while employing a multitude of petty ‘stunts’ to get attention (tacky wigs, brothel attire, referencing her tumultuous relationship Rob Kardashian years later.) The moment she sits down to catch her breath, ten more record label assembled chippies will be thrown into the ring and the last two standing will be the next “RITA ORA

        n 2012, no more do we need windup doll acts like RiTA ORAgetting on camera and posing like an androidian cast-off from America’s Next Top Model, while vapidly bleating over an empty dance track, hanging around longer than the fifteen minutes that is typically allotted for manufactured pop stars such as her.

    Also , do u know why all the record labels in the UK slammed the door in Rita Ora face? They said, she sounds like_insert name.

    All the labels in the USA wanted to SIGN rihanna – ALL OF THEM. Rih made the choice for def jam. No labels in the UK wanted Rita and No labels in the USA wanted Rita – only Jay brown signed her to make Rih jealous as he – and jay z are obsessed with her.

    So you sit there and say Rih is untalented and has no work ethic , BUT EVERY LABEL IN THE USA WANTED HER SIGNATURE. NO ONE IN THE UK WAS CHECKING FOR RITA – RITA had bee around in London – she done, Eurovison, had a track with craig david and they still said no. She got lucky Jay Brown wanted a bargain basement Rihanna.

        She tried to get signed when she came out of the same performing arts school Amy went to – she said she thought would be a superstar the day she left school. SHE TRIED EVERYTHING – EVEN tried out for the corny eurovision song contest.

      @Kelly The fact that Rita Ora tried to get signed and got knock backs doesn’t mean that she is crap, it in fact shows that she has had a true passion/ determination to be a singer and even with the knock backs she didn’t give up. The Beatles, Elvis, Amy Winehouse, Gaga and Adele all got turned down by record labels so that is nothing to be ashamed of.

      The fact with Rihanna is that she got extremely lucky and everyone knows it. A family member introduced her to a major record producer, the producer thought that she was beautiful and had a nice tone to her voice, so he took her to New York helped her create a demo (and let her live with him & his wife), he sent the demo to a few record labels, Def Jam got back to them, Riri performed a Destiny’s Child song, they locked her up in a room for hours whilst Jay Z tried to convince the rest of the panel that this Roybn Fenty girl will be star (he saw “star quality in her eyes”) once they all agreed, she signed the contract on the same day, and they began building the brand.

      Def Jam was the second or third, record label that she audition for, so NO not every label in the US wanted to sign her, don’t kid yourself!

      Rihanna’s presence grow in quantum leaps outside the charts. Being cited by Anna Wintour, herself, as being one of the leading artists in fashion today, Rihanna made her long anticipated debut on the covers of both American and British Vogue. Italia Vogue named her Woman of The Year. Rolling Stone and Esquire Magazine both published their first cover featuring Rihanna and the later elected her “Sexiest Woman of the Year”. Rihanna also made returned visits to the covers of Cosmopolitan and Glamour Magazine.

      Not content with headlining Radio 1‘s Hackney Weekend – the BBC‘s biggest ever outdoor music concert – Rihanna can now add the mammoth feat of 20 million record sales to her list of career achievements here in the UK!
      RiRi has now sold a staggering combined total of 20 million singles and albums on UK turf, according to the latest Official Charts Company‘s sales data.
      It has been just under seven years since her debut UK hit, Pon De Replay, reached Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart; since then, the 24-year-old singer has sold over 14 million singles and over six million albums in the United Kingdom.
      Rihanna has not only had phenomenal success with her solo material, but is also famed for her prolific collaborations with artists such as Drake, Kanye West and fellow Hackney Weekend headliner Jay-Z.

    @RICHNBLACK & DTG……
    Rihanna’s continuing success with hit singles this year lead Billboard to recently consider that Rihanna could soon potentially surpass The Beatles landmark #1 record. In this report they note that Rihanna is the fastest and youngest solo artist to achieve 11 chart toppers, both records previously held by Mariah Carey (the current leading solo artist in Hot 100 toppers). Additionally, she is only the fourth female artist to achieve as many following Mariah, Madonna, and Whitney Houston. In 2011 alone, Rihanna accumulated an additional two number #1s on the Hot 100 in “S&M” and “We Found Love”. The later has spent 8 weeks at the pole position, earning the title of not only Rihanna’s career longest #1 but the longest running #1 of the year. “We Found Love“‘s extended run also grouped her as one of only four other artists in Hot 100 history to have had three songs remain at #1 for at least seven weeks. Since 2010, Rihanna has spent 23 weeks at #1, and 76 weeks in the Top 10. Rihanna collected Top 10’s this year in “S&M”, “Cheers (Drink To That)”, “We Found Love”, and “Take Care” in the record-breaking speed total of 21 career titles. Rihanna also further extended her record of most Billboard Pop Song Chart #1’s in the chart’s history with 9 and Top 10’s with 19. Rihanna has sold more digital singles than any other artist in the US with over 60 million units sold. As with all Rihanna’s singles, the success of these chart toppers is not limited to the US. Rihanna leads the United World Singles Chart with over 22 million points for the year. “We Found Love” went #1 in 15 countries including a 6 week stay at #1 in the UK, becoming the longest running #1 of the year and the longest since her very own “Umbrella” in 2007. It was her sixth #1 in five consecutive years, a record unequaled by any other female solo artist. It also tied her with Madonna for most trans-Atlantic #1 singles. Adding to the series of extraordinary feats in the UK, she was the first female artist to ever top the singles and albums chart simultaneously with two different albums (Loud, Talk That Talk) and singles (“What’s My Name”, “We Found Love”) in the same year. The Official Chart Company later announced that she was the leading artist in single sales of the year, and second in album sales (behind Adele). She now ranks only behind Madonna in single sales for female artists and only behind Madonna and Kylie in #1s in the chart’s history

    The “nocalist”? I caught the shade in that comment. TGJ just can’t seem to write an article about tis woman without being petty and sarcastic. If anything, it doesn’t say anything about Rihanna when their acting like this, it actually makes the writer of this article look bad. He (or) she is supposed to be professional about their job. Yet, they stay throwing shade at her. Grow up TGJ. SMH.
