    This is personaly adressed to KELLY.I was disturbed and disgusted when kelly in one of Rita’s post stated that rita was cheapning her brand by performing in this event,with someone that. Is H** postive!am suprised that in this age and tim e someone can imply that peoiple living with H** a*** are inferior.
    Now is either kelly is heartless or has allowed her hatred for Rita becloud her sense of reasoning.Let me educate your hateful and ignorant soul by stating that ppl living with H** a*** are normal ppl and as such should be treated with love and not scorn and also Ppl living with a*** have dreams and aspirations and as such should be allowed to pursue it regardless of their condition.Kelly dis you take time to reason b4 u made that disgraceful comment?

    Another single?

    • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

      THey will heavily promote with tons of name dropping, Beyonce has already name dropped this song on her blog. It is the only way she can sell. Remove the name dropping and forcefull promo and she is non f****** factor.

  4. DOSSOME October 14, 2012

    With all due respect to this girl,what exactly is she promoting?is it that album that she doesn’t even know its release date here in the U.S?I really hate using the word “FLOP” on anyone but seriously,the amount of FLOPPAGE oozing outta this girl is beyond prayers….@slimsexy,i feel you..we’ve made commendable progress these past few yrs trying to eradicate stigma on people with H** & encouraging +ve living,i make time to visit my home country Kenya from Chicago time to time and i’m impressed so far.the negative elements in the war against H**/A*** must never be condoned

    • SdotB October 14, 2012

      she’s promoting what every artist promotes, their music…how do u know she doesn’t know when her release date is? Just b/c you don’t know doesn’t mean that she doesn’t know…like damn, give her some time to promote herself and her music before she drops an album here in the states, duh…How is she flopping when she’s only seen nothing but success so far, especially for a new artist?1?! You sound bitter for no reason. If you’re not a fan of hers, that’s fine…but to make ignorant comments is just plain stupid…she’s doing a lot better than lots of US artists, but I don’t see you complaining about anyone else…

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        She told the media, back in the summer, that she would drop on 25 / 09. We are on OCT. Jimmy Kimmel failed to mention when her LP comes out and on her twitter is say’s coming soon to USA. They even moved the date of 25/ 09 from wiki. Rihanna never had to push an album back to an unknown date. She is flopping. HWD peaked at 62 and RIP has not charted even though it came out in august. Diamonds went top 10 that day and everyone said it was flop. Time to promote herself? She started her promo 8 months ago. cher lloyd is new and she dropped a dingle and album that went top 10.

        You are the one who is bitter and ignorant. She is the most overpromoted act in history. She doing better than who?

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        Success in the UK and even then Emelie Sande and Lana del ray slayed the hell out of her. In fact, her LP sold 40k in its 1st week and is now out of the itunes chart. Loud and TTT are still there. She flopped all over the world. She has only had number 1 in the UK and a lot of crap goes to number 1 in teh UK.

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        I can give you a list of her 8 month promo :

        Tv shows
        magazines
        made in america festivals
        MTV unplugged
        MTV awards
        MTV after parties
        MTV commercials
        Shows
        radio tour around the whole country
        name dropping
        the kardashian family
        Getting take to z100 by jayz – something Rihanna never had.

        And her biggest song peaked at 62?

    • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

      It was not juts gay pride in ATL, She also done a radio tour in the state of Tennesee.. nashville, chattanooga etc. She has visited every city in every state, every radio statio, from urban to pop. She is an xfactor contestant at best. Even some of kids on Xfactor outsing. She needs to find a new job, because being a pop star like Rihanna is not it.

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        She has done Good morning America, Jimmy Kimmel and GQ USA. If flop with that. Go home and get another job.

  5. JAKE October 14, 2012

    No Rita……

    I know you think that if you get the Gays on your side, you’ll start to sell. But NO…….

    YOU’RE A FLOP B****. HANG IT UP ALREADY!!!!!!

    • SdotB October 14, 2012

      what exactly did she flop?? her #1 album?? u’re pressed..

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        Check the global cHARTS. She is a flop. She went to japan to promote her album. It not chart in japan. Even in the UK, Emelie and Lana del ow her ass.

  6. MELODY2012 October 14, 2012

    Rita does not need any more promo, she needs new material, new sound and new style. She is going on tour in the US (headlining), WHY? What is wrong with ROC NATION? How can someone with no fans headline a tour? who’s going to pay to see somebody that they don’t know? How big would the venue be, 5 people capacity ( For Jay, Bey, Tyty, Jay Brown and her sister)

    • -_- October 14, 2012

      Is she really? That’s the dumbest thing I have ever heard. How can she headline without an album out here? It would make more sense for her to go the Jessie J route and sell out club venues and do z-100, though Jessie J still has considerably a lot more fans here than Rita does. Her show in LA earlier this year, though only 200 capacity at the Roxy, sold out in like four minutes and people were pissed they couldnt get in. At Rita’s rate, I’m not even sure she could sell that out and Jessie already has people harassing her to do an arena tour in the US. I doubt she will, but there is demand for it.

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        She has done z100, 8 months ago. Jay Z took her to z100 to launch how we do. It peaked at 62.

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        How much more promo? What does she need to do to at least chart at 50?

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        No, you are wrong. MTV are sponsoring her headline tour next week. Beyonce the gig for her.

  7. MELODY2012 October 14, 2012

    Thy say never say never, but I don’t see it ever happening for this girl. Where are the dancers? her perfomances are dry.

    • SdotB October 14, 2012

      not everyone needs dancers…where were Mariah’s dancers? or even Whitneys? People actually tend to like her performances better than just listening to her music…she’s very energetic on stage and she has great vocals…refreshing!

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        Rita Ora is not mariah or whitney. She cannot even outsing there back up singers. She has a basic x factor voice. Even some on xfactor can out sing her.

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) October 14, 2012

        Mariah and Whitney both had dancers!

      • veronica October 16, 2012

        She can sing! they just give all the songs to rihanna cuz thats who there cash ho is right now, the girl is working her ass off what r u doing?

  8. MELODY2012 October 14, 2012

    They are wasting money, time and Rita’s energy by promoting material that is not worth the promotion. If Roc was smart, they would save all this promo for when the material is right.

    • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

      It is not the material. RIP is a good song. HWD could of worked. IT IS HER. She is not a star, C list singer at best., If the have given ORA to Christina Millian, it would of been a hit. Millian has more xfactor than bland rita.

    • veronica October 16, 2012

      i agreerocnation DONT wnat to give her the songs! cuz they scared they will loose rihanna if they do!

  9. wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

    I thought Rita Ora was gonna come on the scene and take Rihanna out? End Rih career, to a point that no one buys her s*** and she is reported on anymore. Rih has been selling all of 2012. TTT still sells, WHYB sold a million in the USA and is still selling; Diamonds is selling all over the world and she gets Angelina Jolie type media attention – the most for ANY black female. No black female had the media obsessed with them like Rih. Plus she has had 4 covers this year, not to mention more on the way. Movies; fashion deals etc. I thought Rita Ora was gonna end all that and reign.

    Where is Rita hit?

    • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

      Hapers Bazar USA
      ELLE USA
      Esquire UK
      VOGUE USA – some supermodels cannot even book that amount of covers in less than 6 months.

      • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

        There are more covers on there way. At least Vogue UK and GQ USA. So, This Rita Ora_? Look like her plan backfired…..she was screaming RIP to the girl you use to see her days are over. But she has MADE RIHANNA MORE FAMOUS.

  10. wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

    The UK will ne tough for Rita Ora. People in the UK are sick of her, number 1 or not. n ow with Jessie J coming back, jade ellis from xfactor and Ella from factor….she will be a non motherfucking factor in the UK TOO. She should go back and do music in kosovo

    • veronica October 16, 2012

      wow ur dedicated ur whole name to hating someone for persuing there dream. pathetic

  11. Rihanna’s Body October 14, 2012

    Rita Ora looks like a drag Queen, rihanna looks like a supermodel #next

  12. @091094_ Twitter October 14, 2012

    I think we all know who reigns supreme here sam, from the last year of you saying how she would slay, fast forward to now and where are we, the comments say it all, RITA IS A FLOP and Rihanna has just somehow magically made herself over again, ohh and I stan for BEYONCE BTW

  13. LTM October 14, 2012

    97% of the comments on this post are from Rihanna stans. Pressed much? I love how you all claim Rita is a flop but check for all of her posts

    • wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

      well, it is a public bog, h**! What do u expect? People will voice their opinion and if you dont like it…….f*** yourself!

      • LTM October 14, 2012

        So you agree that you and most of the Navy are pressed?

    • veronica October 16, 2012

      exactky they are pathetic and rihanna is on her 7th album you fools!

  14. wrinkle flop ora October 14, 2012

    I just watched the video of her performing radioactive, her version of Only girl in the world by Rihanna…………..NAH: a cliched played out dance track, from a boring singer with bland vocals.

    • Rita Slays October 14, 2012

      Lol @ you watching Rita Ora performances with your free time. Just like a real fan 😉

  15. Rita Slays October 14, 2012
