We can’t knock Ms. Fenty. She slyly attempted to take a “break” this era, yet the so-so sales of ‘Talk That Talk’ likely served as the biggest of reality checks for both her and her team. Indeed, her McMusic alone isn’t enough to mobilize her cause – hence touring, however awful she is live – is much more a “must” than it may seem on the surface.
Anyway…the title of the tour is “interesting”. By our Rihanna handbook, she’s pretty much “due” for a new album…now. And with this week ushering in the debut of a new hair do and now a tour, we’d put good money on it coming sooner rather than later.
Seven projects in seven years? Overkill?
