Let’s face it...Rihanna is and will always be one of Pop’s most celebrated stars.
Unfortunately for her though, her talent has, and will never, live up to the hype of her celebrity and so- in desperate bids to generate attention- she oft turns to the controversy surrounding she and ex boyfriend Chris Brown to push her cause.
A cause, that led her appearance on Oprah’s ‘Next Chapter‘ and now leads her forthcoming album ‘Unapologetic‘.
Now peep footage of their pair ‘confirming’ their reunion last night, at an event in support of Brown’s ‘Qubeey’ venture.
Media wh*ring below…
“Let’s pretend we’re not being filmed.”
Right now, as in today, media stunts like these will indeed give Riri the push her vocal skill could never afford her.
However, in ten years time, when tomorrow’s ‘listeners’ have a new batch of chart topping stars to worship, will anyone look back on her career with respect and admiration?
For, while the likes of GaGa, Usher and Beyonce laid their talent as the sustainable foundations of their brands, Rihanna has become nothing more than Kim Kardashian with a recording contract- lacking the substance that allows the likes of Tina Turner to wow audiences 50 years into her career.
In short, with ‘Diamonds’ struggling to top the Hot 100 and momentum for ‘Unapologetic’ all but buzzing, we hope their conveniently timed reunion takes the LP straight to #1.
Then again, with Keyshia Cole and ACDC set to serve as serious competition, we doubt it will.
