    Rihanna Though Process,,
    We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems the ones that make you truly who you are that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

    I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

    Let our scars fall in love.

    And this once again re-enforces what we’ve been saying, and that is not only can Rihanna sing multiple genres but she also appeals to multiple fan bases, hence her being popular even amongst inmates.

    That Rihanna reign, I am not mad, this shows that Rihanna is a global force, and is once again on the same list as legends like Tupac. You cannot escape the name that is Rihanna.

    Rihanna has also done more for her home country Barbados than Beyonce ever will for her community in her (Beyonce) lifetime.
