    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?

    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.

    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

    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…

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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)

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
