 Rihanna: People Look At Me And See Dollars

Though she may still be without as US number one album, there’s no denying Rihanna‘s status as one of Pop’s strongest cash shows.

Yet to release an album that didn’t sell a million or more US copies since her sophomore effort, the chart topper’s countless number one singles, tours and endorsement deals have ensured her superiors over at Roc Nation make bank, over…and over and again.

Now, in an interview for GQ Magazine’s ‘Men Of The Year’ edition, she has spoken out on how her lucrative career has made it hard for people to see or perhaps understand her art.

Her words below…

On how she feels she is perceived:

“Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery. ”

Her comments arrived before the November 19th launch of her new album ‘Unapologetic‘, and months before she embarks on the ‘Diamonds’ World Tour, no more than two years after her ‘Loud’ World Tour generated a cool $90 million upon its June 4th 2011 launch.

Your thoughts?

        On a more positive note those who know what fame feels like and the price it comes with is not easy… most ppl will be your friend just to get what they can so what she is saying not only applies to the professional aspect but also her personal life

        Who the hell is King B? Last time i checked my country had no kings.

        Im not sure why your getting so angry about it. Its the truth there isnt much to Rihanna but the money she makes her label.

        Thats why she has an album sales quota to meet each year.
        What other label is pimping out their artist with 2 albums a year?

    All the money aside it’s hard to be marketed as art the more mainstream you go.People will contrive it and no longer call you an artist because you don’t write your own songs or you don’t treat your own videos ( both ludicrous reasons considering that’s what songwriters and video directors are for but I digress) but I think in Rihanna’s case its the volume of music released in such a short span that makes people see “spoiled pop star with little to no substance” .the fans we love it! But we’ve been taught true classics take time to build (I.e Thriller, Ray of Light,Purple Rain) .in the end sadly you become a BRAND that’s just part of fame. You have all these different artists who do the same thing but someone does it better and that person has better marketing, bigger money machine,testimonials etc.you are a product in a way.

      I hear what you’re saying but disagree in some parts. Rihanna is a product because she is what the record label made her, she was about to be dropped before she was repackaged as a s** symbol and she basically just went along with it and I doubt even she knows who the real Rihanna is with all the hair and image changes. The point will be proved when she takes a break and there is no-one dictating her every move, the same thing happened to Britney Spears, the moment motherhood came she went into a meltdown because she had been so conditioned in being told what to do, act and wear.
      There are some artists left. Prince, Sade for example, they project the music and image they want, they have people anticipating an album after a 10 year gap, and they are not about the sales.

    She doesn’t write her songs. She doesn’t produce them. While singing (with her goat-ish vocals) on studio, she follows exactly how the demo singer do. She can’t dance. She can’t sing. She can’t act. She can’t be a host of a tv show. She isn’t involved on the concept of her music videos.
    Have several seats, b****. You’re beyond delusional. Rihanna is just a manufactured singer who does everything that she’s told to do. There isn’t nothing artistic on her. Her own talent is taking photos, but even doing this she can be tacky. She doesn’t give any output/input on her work at all. If she had called herself as a “hit maker” or any other b*******, I wouldn’t have given a f*** about it.

    I know this is off topic but I feel Billboard should really change their rules the way it was before, I was just looking at hip n hop n rnb charts and Diamonds is still Number 1 truth be told it isn’t a R&B song and I feel it’s unfair to the other real R&B artist who can’t even score a number 1 on their own charts anymore because of it and diamonds will stay number 1 for a while unless this rule changes… is billboard trying to kill R &B off?

      This type of music isn’t even played on the regular mainstream radio and now they took the RnB charts away.

        @jay no wrong again. Don’t try to change up her words. If she wanted to say that she was a canvas she would have said so, but she said that she is “art”. Meaning that she believes that her physical being is a piece of art to be admired, how she carries are self and what she does is art.

        I dont get why the Navy always try to put words in Rihannas mouth, to defend her. She doesn’t need defending she clearly said what she meant.

      I don’t hate Rihanna. I can’t hate someone that I don’t even know and hasn’t done anything against me. There’s a huge difference between hate and having a dissenting opinion. When I say all the things I say about her, I am not hating her, I am not saying these things just to put herself down. Everything I say is my opinion which has credibility and several ways to be proven.
      I would’ve been hating if I had said things like Rihanna worships devi, she had s** with Jay-Z to get her record deal or other stupid things. If I can’t prove, so it’s useless. If it’s useless, it isn’t my point. That’s the difference between b******* and opinion. You say that Beyoncé faked her pregnancy, buy her awards and she’s fake, but you can’t prove none of these. On other hand, I can prove that Rihanna’s a label puppet, can’t sing, can’t act, can’t perform and she’s just a package of DefJam’s manufactured music, ‘Battleship’ and ‘Styled to Rock’ were flop etc. I can prove all these things. That’s why I am not a hater, but you are. That’s why I have an opinion, but you only have b*******.
      You call me “hater” ’cause I don’t kiss her ass. Well, I couldn’t care less, I’m not as delusional as you.

        Rihanna’s #1 smash hit “Umbrella” is a defining song of the decade. The song was written with Britney Spears in mind with hopes of being a comeback hit for her. ..

        However, her label, Jive, rejected it saying they had enough songs for her upcoming album already. The song eventually made its way to Rihanna and became the first single from her Good Girl Gone Bad album. It was a #1 hit around the world and made many critics’ lists as one of the top 10 songs of the year.

        “Disturbia” was the third single from Rihanna’s re-release of her album Good Girl Gone Bad. It was written by Chris Brown and his team of writers for him to record.

        He decided it was more appropriate for a female singer and passed it on to Rihanna. The song is creepy, disturbing, and an impressive dance song. It went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks at the end of summer 2008. Rihanna performed “Disturbia” to open the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.

In contrary to Lady gaga who rubs it in our faces all day long with her lies in it, even though she has a machine just like rihanna behind her. Gaga and her HAUS created a fiber optic wig that lights up and they think it’s so revolutionary ! Rihanna is not obnoxious and pretentious, she gives credits when it’s due, gaga acts like she does everything on her own whereas she works with countless producers, her haus for example who designs all her outfits copied from madonna, grace jones etc.

      I hear you, but the difference is that Lady Gaga is an artist and artists have a completely different personality to the everyday person. They are passionate, sensitive, eccentric, big headed and often outspoken. Rihanna is down to earth because she doesn’t have an “artists” personality. Its the very thing that makes her relatable to the masses; she is the average pretty girl who through contacts happened to make it big, and deep down thats why people love her. Its not because of her talent or art, it’s because she makes us feel that no matter who you are, where you come from or the lack of talent that you have, we all have the chance of becoming rich, loved by the masses and untouchable… And that my friends is the muthafucking IT factor.

Stargate produced the record, and it very quickly became a #1 dance hit for Rihanna. Later the song climbed pop radio airplay charts and ultimately ended up hitting #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    Isn’t she signed to def jam and not roc nation? Anyways she can be an artist and make money but she isn’t. When u strive to get number ones and compete that’s when the art isn’t there any more. When u don’t allow ur music to live on as long as it can bc u want to have a new album out in 365 days after the last and it is a formula, then u are about the money. When ur involvement is less than 50% and ur not perfecting nor improving (Rihanna on snl was great for her n 1 of her best live vocals) then it’s not about the craft rather being money.
    Is Rihanna art or a money maker? She seems more money than being an actual artist

    Instead of employing women for free, people just hand out money in contracts. You are wrong if you are normal and pose nude. If you are foreign and pose nude it makes people see dolla signs? Most people I know see the other people that may have had. But that’s what the boys I know had told me.

      Rihanna,,,,Song,,,
      “Rude Boy” (2010)
      Courtesy Def Jam
      “Rude Boy” is arguably Rihanna’s most upbeat song from the Rated R album. As such, it was almost as if fans breathed a sigh of relief sending it to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Rude Boy” became her fifth solo single to achieve that feat.

      Rihanna song,,,
      “Pon de Replay” (2005)
      Rihanna was just 17 when “Pon de Replay” bounded on to the charts in the summer of 2005. The song was part of Rihanna’s original four-song demo that helped her earn a recording contract. The request of the DJ to “turn the music up” was an instant hit in dance clubs going clear to the top of the dance charts, and it almost made it there on the pop charts as well. Rihanna’s initial hit peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100

      It’s a damn shame that Rihanna has to belittle herself so these f**** can make money off her while she gets very little. The ones behind the scene are the ones making the big bucks & mostly that label 360 contract. You people are not giving anything to Rihanna but to the people working behind the scene. I don’t care how many times you download and buy one of Rihanna’s songs, a big chunk of it goes to others. Rihanna gets hardly nothing. Yes this is sad and I’m also glad she it speaking on it.

    There is two things that can be done to bring back the R&B the way it was if we give it a try. Stop supporting the aritst to whom s not strickly R&B, send tweets to Billboard of how you feel. It can’t be just one but we need millions to tweet something to Billboard. Billboard awards shows should be boycotted.

    These billboard people are tryng to get rid of R&B our roots to black music to push white music in. Listen up we all know that Rap was a black thing right, then how the hell did Eminem get to be the #1 Rap artist in the world? Why because the blacks put him there. Notice whites are not going to let a black person take over Country Music. You black people had better wake the f*** up and stop putting in people whom are not from the US nor come in and take over Rap music or any of our music for that matter.. There are many talented artists out there and we are just focusing on the same three or four. This was never like that before. If you liked an artist you buy it not this s*** you people are doing today. There was always many artists making it high on the charts, not just a few. Why because we supported all not just one or two SMDH

        The difference is that more black folks probably know Adele’s music more than Jill Scott’s because of the amount of airplay she receives on mainstream radio.
        When have you ever heard a Jill Scott song on the mainstream radio? If people dont know it’s out then how can people support it? Not everybody goes on music blogs.

You just didn’t see one artists tv you saw several. I remember when the Jackson 5, Prince,Steve Wonder,Diana Ross,Whitney,Aretha Franklin, Chaka,Tempations and then you had Eve, Missy, Queen L, TLC, DaBrat, Salt & Pepper, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown and the list goes on. These artists were out the same time and did very well.

    Most of these haters are stupid because Rihanna has excelled and became one of the most successful black artist in just 7 years. So what her vocal range isn’t all the way up there? Beyonce used to sound pitchy as f*** before her ass got the right vocal training. Ciara always sounds like she was sucking on the same d*** that f***** up Mariah Carey’s voice. So why come for Rihanna? Y’all b****** are tragic and lame. F*ggots always want to catch an attitude and talk s***, like is that all y’all are good for? Sitting around the computer for hours at a time waiting for a Rihanna post to comment on when you can just wait for a Beyonce post (I don’t remember the last Beyonce post, I think it’s like 10 pages back) to spread positivity to? I don’t blame Beyonce for not caring about her fans, she doesn’t give a f*** about you ghetto dry weave wearing hoes. Now shut the f*** up and go beat y’all pussies somewhere else.
