Hot Shots: Rihanna Razzles & Dazzles In ‘Vogue’ Shoot

rihanna vogue 12 e1350299820779 Hot Shots: Rihanna Razzles & Dazzles In Vogue Shoot

Rihanna may sing like a choir of dying cats, but oh can the model strike a pose.

As previously reported, the 24 year old features in the November 2012 of Vogue magazine; and while last week brought with it the feature’s official cover, this week usher’s in the arrival of the accompanying shots.

Check out the ‘Diamonds’ performer pose it up, courtesy of SheIsDiva.com, below…

Rihanna’s new album ‘Unapologetic’ arrives on November 19th.

*******

Randomness: Is it us or are RiRi campaigns growing more ridiculous with each passing year? At this point, her eras are averaging 5-6 months a pop. Given that ‘Talk That Talk’ only had 4-5 decent tracks, it could and should have been part of a ‘Loud’ re-release.

Tease as we may, it’s hard to deny that Team Fenty are playing ‘Russian Roulette’ with her relevancy. For, she runs high risk of saturating her market with her “album a year” policy – especially as her “ever-changing” sound and image are becoming increasingly “samey” and harder to disguingish from era’s prior. Just thinking thinking out aloud. In the meanwhile…

Your thoughts?

    A LOUD re-release would have been good and I would have bought that because LOUD was my favorite era even though Rated R was my favorite album. That said, Riri looks good in the vogue shots and I can’t wait to get unapologetic.

    Part of a Rare Breed: Black Female Pop Stars
    If you begin to name black female pop stars from the 1980s until now, you’ll be hard pressed to find more than a handful. That handful includes names such as Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston. And to be honest, the list doesn’t go much further than that. Of course there have been many black female artists in the past thirty years, but there are very few who have taken over top 40.

    Why is this? There’s no science to it. I think it has more to do with marketing and image. For instance, when the world was first introduced to Whitney Houston she had the looks of America’s Sweetheart and the voice of a real diva. By hooking up with record industry legend Clive Davis, he managed to help her maintain a viable MTV presence as well as appearances on national shows that garnered attention from the mainstream media. When Houston peaked in the early 1990s, she was still seen as all-American and wholesome even though she married the troublesome Bobby Brown.

    Janet Jackson also had the same innocence and appeal due to her following that was built from fans of her brothers (Jackson 5) as well as her own fans from her stints on shows like Fame and Good Times. By the time of her breakthrough album in 1986, Janet was seen as sassy and fun-loving but still relatively harmless. It wasn’t until her 1993 album, Janet that people finally saw her as a young woman with a deep and powerful sexuality. However, because of nearly a lifetime in public, she was still highly regarded.

    And then there’s Beyonce who essentially picked up where Janet left off. She fronted the childhood group of friends that became Destiny’s Child and around 2003 launched the solo career which she is currently known for. Destiny’s Child was a powerful launching pad because of their girl-power anthems and sassy attitude. But due to frequent lineup changes and other issues, the group ultimately broke up. It was hoped that Beyonce would continue the legacy of the group’s female-empowered anthems, but she opted to go in a different direction.

    Beyonce’s success has paved the way for more black females in pop, most notably Rihanna who inevitably drew comparison’s since she was signed by none other than Jay-Z at the tender age of 16. However, for all of Beyonce’s influence Rihanna’s musical style is more of a fusion of dance, pop, and reggae. But the comparisons remain nonetheless.

    A Strong Start
    Beyonce released Dangerously in Love in 2003 to rave reviews and multiple Grammy wins. It was hailed as one of the best solo debuts for a young artist in several years and Beyonce managed to stand out in an era filled with young singers leaving their groups in hope of solo success.

    She set the standard and booty shake for the decade with her debut single, “Crazy in Love.” The go-go inspired beats and the electrifying video garnered a lot of acclaim. She followed that up with successful hit singles.

    In 2006. she released her second album. The video for the first single,”Deja Vu” evoked images of Josephine Baker and the infamous banana skirt. Beyonce stated that she was paying homage to a fashion icon and trailblazer among African-Americans; she worked closely with Baker’s son even to capture the essence of the look.

    Beyonce had managed to get away with that, but by the time of her third album, people weren’t hearing it. I Am.. Sasha Fierce garnered multiple Grammys, but that still didn’t silence Beyonce’s critics.

    Dance Dance Revolution or Confusion?
    “Single Ladies” was a movement in 2008. The dance, the look, all infiltrated pop culture at warp speed. However, it was not without controversy. The hand motions, especially gave way to the fact that Beyonce said she was inspired by the choreography of the legendary of Bob Fosse.

    But no matter how many funny SNL parodies pop up, there were steal multiple controversies about that dance among others. While Beyonce continues to say she was inspired by the looks and performances of other icons, no doubt even performing with one of them. This question of stealing has now hit a peak in 2011.

    “Run the World (Girls)” borrowed heavily from African choreography troupes, but the costume looks were said to also to be taken from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, starring Tina Turner.

    Her follow-up videos, “Countdown” and “Love on Top” are also inspired by fellow iconic performances. One being a Belgian artist, another being 80′s boy band New Edition. While Beyonce continues to say it’s all an homage, the real question is where does the originality play in for her as an artist?

    Borrowing or Stealing?
    It’s one thing when a younger artist is inspired by an icon to the extent they mimic a look, a movement, or even a sound but it’s another thing when the movements and looks begin to mirror another artist than reveal a distinct persona.

    Beyonce isn’t the only young superstar to face this issue, but others have overcome it. Other pop stars have had the same battles. Britney Spears faced the Madonna comparisons, but in her own right has now built her own pop empire. Usher and Justin Timberlake were both heavily compared to their idol, Michael Jackson but somehow managed to create their own sound while still being true to their influences. Justin Timberlake even re-wrote discarded tracks intended for Michael Jackson’s last studio album, Invincible, for his debut album. And while he faced criticism at first, he later reaped the rewards in the form of a few Grammys. Usher also has had massive success by experimenting with techno and dance music.

    And while there is no real way to say what constitutes borrowing or stealing, there is something to be said for forging your own identity or style but almost ten years into being a solo artist, it’s hard to classify something that uniquely applies to Beyonce. Sure she has songs like “Single Ladies” and “Irreplaceable”, but those were written by other artists and collaborators. However, her other songs and videos even seem to resemble too much of artists’ past.

    PS
    @Beyonce is supposed to be setting an example for Rih, Rih and Yes i did mention Beyonce’s name first so What,,,,
    @NAVY PLEASE FORGIVE ME,,,AND THAT GRAPE PLEASE FORGIVE ME THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!!!!!

    this sounds like wishful thinking on your part, sam. i have a feeling that 5 years from now, if this site still exists by then, you’re gonna be saying THE SAME THING about rih’s latest era, claiming she’s THISCLOSE to irrelevancy and in the meantime, rih will STILL be selling albums WW and probably have about 17 #1 singles by then.

    in short, rih ain’t goin NOWHERE, at least not as quickly as you want her to.

    That’s what’s getting on my nerves about them. It’s getting old now. If they personally don’t like her, that’s one thing. But, their supposed to be professional when writing these articles. So, they need to keep their “personal” feelings towards her to themselves. It says nothing about Rihanna, and everything about them. It shows how petty, childish and jealous they are of her success. They make it so obvious too, because you NEVER see them throwing shade at any other artists on this site, but Rihanna. This woman has never said one bad word about TGJ, yet they come for her neck every time there’s an article written about her. Once again, it’s not making her look bad, because she’s going on about her business. But, it makes those here at TGJ look immature and unprofessional. They need to grow up. SMH.

    The Beyonce comparisons started with the Good Girl Gone Bad era, Rihanna had a major successful album and it was RnB, Beyonce was the other RnB lady, it was inevitable they would be compared, just like Xtina and Britney who are clearly 2 different artists. It is only natural that artists will be compared, this has been going on since the history of the Billboard charts.

    The last Beyonce album I bought was 4 and I wish I sent that s*** back because I only liked one song which is I miss you. I only liked the I am part of I am…Sasha Fierce, the other part was too much of a ghetto rollercoaster for me. I also didn’t like B’Day at all. I thought it was a poor effort.

    As for Rihanna, I loved GGGB, really loved Rated R and loved LOUD. And despite what people think, LOUD is more reggae than pop. There are only 2 pop songs in LOUD. My favorite song from LOUD is fading. I kind of liked TTT, I thought it could have been better but they are songs on it that make up for it like Fool in Love, Roc me out, etc.

    I don’t hate Beyonce’s music, I just hate Beyonce herself.

    Ok let’s face it rih is one hellova chick. Years back she was taking lessons from the older girls. Fast forward into some years after later and she is mapping out new lanes. On a musical tip, ppl really need 2 fall back & enjoy what she has 2give. Beyonce can sing no doubt but in the singing department she is definately an A student. If am in need of sweet & mad vocals leona lewis, mariah. Whitney, J hud, fantasia are some of the go see girls. Rih just provides the feel good stuff like gaga, katy, kesha e.t.c

    We really need 2 start huhhing strangers more, nay be that will stem down the level of hate in this world. U guys constantly peg this girl as nothing but a model, which is what she just did, & judging from the above snaps she did a fantastic job. She has gradually erased the dumb idea that beyonce pushed that u ve to ve a big ass or buy one to be sexy chick which we know has sent a lot of ppl 2 an early grave. Ppl should give her props 4 scoreing major points 4 her craft even its not musically oriented. The b**** can do something other than music which in a book translate as a plus

    How is the Queen of R&B not going to be on the list and Rihanna and Ashanti are? Where are Ledisi, Kelly Price, Faith Evans, etc? How is Keyshia Cole going to chart high? Child Bye.

    rihanna is sexy , but those pics just lack somethings , they are too super-edited for me and are just colorful and normal !!! but it is still a US vogue photoshoot :P
    i liked the ones in which she’s standing in front of a tree or some s*** like that and the other one in which she take the kitty-kat pose while wearing that “skirt?!” .

    things i wanna address in this post :

    1. ” Given that ‘Talk That Talk’ only had 4-5 decent tracks, it could and should have been part of a ‘Loud’ re-release. ”

    first of all , that is an opinion , Talk that talk had more than 5 decent tracks , you have ” drunk on love” , “roc me out” , “we found love” , “where have you been” , “watch N Learn” , “red lipstick” and maybe ” you da one” or “cockiness” !!! it is all about opinions , so don’t talk as if it is a fact , a fact that was given by a BIASED beyonce stan like u @sam.

    2. ” she runs high risk of saturating her market with her “album a year” policy – especially as her “ever-changing” sound and image are becoming increasingly “samey” and harder to disguingish from era’s prior ”

    i just want to know is it a crime if she want to release an album every year , heck , even if she releasing 3 albums/EPs a year , what’s your problem ?!! a lot of acts did that in the past and no one had a problem with it , one of them is your fav’s husband , jay-z ! i don’t see you have a problem with him @sam ?! isn’t he releasing an album every year , and his image is always”samey” *laughs* and it is hard to distinguish from era’s prior , so why making it as if rih is the first one to do it ?! the beatles did it , elvis did it and lots of other acts did it , that’s how you keep your name out there in this ever-changing industry ! nothing safe in it and u gotta do something to keep what u have , so i don’t blame her !!

    and as far as looks go , she always changes her looks and it is different everytime , i wonder how you describe her as “samey” and u don’t say it to beyonce who had the same looks “overall” since B’day era !!!!! BIASED.

    u always wanna blame everything bad on rihanna , and also u always say she don’t do anything by herself at all , so does that even make sense ? so why blaming her ? she’s just a pop star , that’s what they do to stay in the spotlight ! light , camera , action , stage , drama , twitter and VOGUE.

    3. ” Rihanna may sing like a choir of dying cats”

    said a dicki stan/a barb whose fav should go straight to prison for making songs like “stupid hoe” /”roman holiday” which sound like some chimpanzees having sex for the last time in their lives while wearing colorful rainbow-colored wigs !!!!!

    Hon why are talking about “B has the same look since B’DAY?” She’s an music artist/business woman, as long as she changes sounds with her albums is the only changes she needs. And when have B not had a different look for each video. B has even been a damn leopard one time. You talking about her look never changing when she’s on her personal time because she dresses realistic when she’s going out to dinner or hanging with billionaires not in some damn costume.

    Frankly speaking I’m so sick and tired of all this ‘fanbased’ controversy that is created. Who says there isn’t enough room for more than one person to shine…and why must that be a problem. I love both artistes…and even tho I prefer B,I think Rih is really good. See all she’s accomplished in 7 years,its really commendable.
    I listen to both of them and I admire em both. Cut all d BS u guys and support em,that’s d least you cud do. Enough said.

    If Rihanna was on ANTM these pics would be horrible. She never does nothing with her face, her legs are all wrong in the red dress barnyard pose. Yes the styling is cute but no modeling for her. I am in love with her voice on Diamonds though. The songs that are popular like “WFL” i never liked (corny) but the flop songs i love because those are the songs that really sound like something. Anyway everybody call the Free Urban Chicago Alibi chatline 1712-945-2310, press 7 and come to the live rooms. Lets get it crackin’. Lets fight, Lets argue

    Does Rihanna pays all your bills? I know she pays Sam’s bills, but the rest of ya? Not a day goes by without Rihanna being bashed here. She pays Sam’s mortgage, car, and internet bills. You haters can stay pressed while Riri makes the dough. But WHY YOU MAD THOUGH?
