    Rihanna maybe a flop album seller, but her fashion sense is everything!

    @ BeyHive

    Beyonce just sold out a 73K stadium in Poland, and The Mrs. Carter World Tour has sold at least 802.000 tickets so far, in just 10 days, just NA and Europe, the 2nd legs haven’t been added yet, and without any ticket discount.

    Great Job, keep SLAYing!

    OMG! TACKY CLOTHES. Fashion show? It looked like Fashion H**. I can only see prostitutes using these cheap outfits that R****** call clothes. They’re as basic as her. I am not surprised about it, she is naked everytime, she doesn’t know nothing about fashion.

    I can’t believe how big she’s become, and she’s only 24!

    @watersports
    i think she should do stadiums all over America, and in NZ, Netherlands, Brazil (she’s already booking a 75K stadium there but needs to do like 2 or 3 lol), Argentina, Peru, South Africa, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe (Bey herself doesn’t know she’s the queen of Africa), Japan, China, Russia, Japan, South Korea!

    i’m sure she will, she said this tour will last for an entire year!

    Sam,

    Remember when You, Rita ora nation and others said that when Rita Ora drops ‘ Radioactive’ she will set the world alight. They said it is her ‘ WE FOUND LOVE ‘ . You were even bragging that it was number 40 on itunes . Well, radioactive was officially released on the 10th feb. It peaked at……………………………………NUMBER 18.

    Pitiful.

    Though this girl was the A list in the UK? Shine ya light scraped into the top 10 and Radioactive, written by Sia peaked at 18. Why does this flop w**** keep releasing singles?

    Do you want to know what Promo she did for radioactive?

    UK Tour
    Rio Ferdinand magazine
    Radio 1 – severa times this week
    Radio 2
    Radio 1 xtra
    Graham norton. She seems to have connections with people at radio 1 and MTV. She is sleeping with people at these places, only way she gets all this love.

    Anyway. She flopped and peaked at 18. SHE IS OVER.

    Stay by rihanna is at number 4.

    If it’s cute and it fits then I will wear it. I dont really care about brand names or fashion designers. Except Jessica Simpson’s lines are kinda cute! Especially the shoes! Most of the clothes I saw here were kinda blah. Really when I look at the clothes I see laidback carribean type of clothes. I was expecting something more city and trendy and a little edgier but whatevs. Rihanna’s fans will say anything is holy and oh so amazing…

QUEEN NAVY BEYONCE, is WAY WAY WAY RICHER than Rihanna and no matter how many albums, clothing lines, s** tapes…that Rihanna is gonna release, Queen Navy BEY is always gonna end up making MORE MONEY than that INDUSTRY W**** RIHANNA. Every producer in hollywood has TASTED that w****’s PUCCY. RIHANNA is a DISGRACE TO WOMEN and AMERICA. WE DONT WANNA HER GIVING OUR COUNTRY A BAD IMAGE.

    Wats wrong with these Rihanna man whores?
    I can see that her insanity is really affecting her fans.
    Only the uneducated support rihanna. They spend their whole time on TGJ lying about celebrities who’re actually talented and try to bring them down so that their UNEDUCATED idol can shine. But the world is watching. Hollywood is watching. We are all watching. We KNOW THOSE WHO ARE FAKE N THOSE WHO ARE REAL. The These are artists whom no matter how manynumber records that they sell, EVERYBODY is still gonna know that theyre NOT real artist. Theyre just a bunch of autotune singers with NO TALENT. these artists are
    KESHA
    BRITNEY SPEARS
    RIHANNA
    MADONNA
    NIKKI MINAJ
    JENNIFER LOPEZ
    …and dont get me wrong. A few of these have other talents apart from rihanna n kesha. But when it comes to SINGING, All of them know nothing about it. Jennifer, brit n madonna can dance. Kesha n rihanna can ONLY be HOLKYWOOD HARLOTS.

    Positive reviews? where?
    From the magazines bought and paid for?
    This collection has had terrible reviews
    plus the design of the leggings is a copy of a design thats been out for years.
    No originality
    No quality
    No style.
    Anyone who says different has been standing too close to Rihanna as she
    exhales her weed smoke and fills the room with canabis clouds

  36. Creole Queen Beyonce February 17, 2013

    In case you people didn’t know, this clothing line has received a lot of negative reviews. It doesnt look too bad but its got no originality. Weve seen clothes like these before. Shes just reproducing other people’s ideas. Like nikki minaj playing around with all those wigs as if she created it. Lik Kim(the queen of rap) did all that already. Lil kim had the BARBIE idea first. So nothing is original with these artists. Rihannas fans call themselves navy but the whole world knows that KING B had that idea first. Rihanna’s whole career is based on plagiarism. Beyonce came out with a song GREENLIGHT, then before u know it, rihanna sings abt the same green light in Disturbia. Beyonce used mirrorson the floor in her UPGRADE YOU video, rihanna does same thing in Hate that i love you. Beyonce used red hair in CHECK ON IT, rihanna copied the same thing later on n even took it as her new hairstyle. Beyonce sang “if u like it then u shoulda PUT A RING ON IT” in single ladies, rihanna later on sang “PUT YOUR NAME ON IT” in her song Birthday cake. Beyonce n her destinychilds girld, put on NAVY ATTIRES in survivor video, now Rihanna is calking her fans NAVY. If uall want me to go on, im gon go on. Rihanna will never be unique. At leadt britney spears cant sing but she had her own style. Madonna was unique. But rihanna, everything u do has got NO ORIGINALITY!!!!!!!!
    So stay flopping.

    And Rihanna is already designing for the Fall collection so clearly River Island love it. Haters failed again, try again.

    The ones praising this mess are either hookers are hookers in training.. Go check the UK reviews, they are calling this a horror show, slutty and the most tasteless mess they have seen. The Diana comment goes along with the other mess, some one started this mess too try and save face for the farce of a show she put on… Beyonce has nothing too do with this..

    MTV Style’s Chrissy Mahlmeister:
    “We’re totally on-board with her comfy girly-yet-grunge pieces. She kicked off her show with Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Clique” blasting to a light show on a multi-level platform stage, and then sent out a two-piece denim ensemble for her opening look. She remixed traditional denim overalls but cutting them into two pieces and adding an extra layer of baggy jeans (literally) on top of a lighter pair, which we’ve never seen before.”
    MailOnline’s Toni Jones:
    “While the feel of the collection was quite young, Rihanna also included some seriously elegant maxi dresses, dip-hemmed shirts and digital print separates that will find a home in the 30 something market… Models were the kind of cool girls every 16 year old wants to be and the hip-hop soundtrack kept her young fans happy.”
    Sober judges at the best of times, The Guardian, compared Rihanna’s bid for fashion fiefdom to Mary and Kate Olsen’s debut years ago — the sisters were named as Womenswear Designers of the Year by Council of Fashion Designers of America last year — concluding:

    “For keen fashion enthusiasts who look to London for innovative ideas this 120-piece collection undoubtedly fell short. There is little doubt the collaboration, which is supported by a marketing campaign featuring Dunn, will be a winner when it hits the shops next month.”

    i see nothing but good to great reviews here from the biggest names

    The clothing line is UGLY as hell, Beyonce HOD debut/presentation at the London Fashion Week in 2011 was much more better and the clothing was 10X better than this cheap nonsense.

  44. RIVER ISLAND==WARDROBE MALFUNCTION February 18, 2013

    These are not my words. They are the top reviews on RIhanna’s trashy pornographic “clothing line”

    Huffington Post’s Rebecca Adams:
    “RiRi was an hour late for her nine-minute fashion show. We know timeliness isn’t de rigueur during fashion week, but making attendees wait a whole hour? Even we can’t pretend to check emails on our iPhones for that long. Nipple-baring, crotch-flashing mesh outfits and bra tops aren’t exactly what a stylish gal wants to throw on for a casual night out.The entire collection was a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. … Rihanna didn’t technically design the clothes… Did she even touch the fabric she draped the models in?”

    The Daily Beast’s Tom Sykes was perhaps the most verbal critic:
    “There were few who anticipated a fashion triumph, but, even allowing for the limited expectations, Rihanna’s collection for River Island as brought forth in London tonight was a horror show. The clothes were hideous and without an ounce of panache or style between them. True, there were some consolations. For example, if you really, really like belly buttons, if you are totally nuts for navels, then this could be the collection for you. If you only feel capable of wearing clothes on the lower half of your body if they are slashed up to your waist, then again, you are in luck. Similarly, if you were a guy hoping for a one night stand and a girl started chatting to you in a bar wearing anything from the Rihanna for River Island collection, you could feel fair confident you’d be getting lucky. The only lingering uncertainty in your mind would be whether or not she would take a credit card.”

    Those two blogs never post anything positive about Rihanna. Huffington post been kissing Bey a since they were trying to protest her and then after Bey people got to them they been writing nothing but positive articles and at two to three articles a day about Bey. So what they say means nothing. Its what a real fashion magazine had to say like Elle and Vogue and a whole lot of others, gave positive reviews. Just like this blog they write nothing but negative about Rihanna and uplift Bey.

    Looks nothing like what we would expect from Rihanna, it doesn’t even look like stuff she would wear.

    And d*mn at her stans always mixing things up. Yes, Rihanna can wear anything and work it. Linda Evangelista was the chameleon queen but is she a designer?! No.

    Hahaha I don’t stan for the Hive or the Navy, I like both. But honestly, Navy stans have no right to call out Beyonce’s line when it was more successful, had better reviews, and was 10 times better than this s***. I’m sorry Rihanna’s cool and I like her music but if it was the other way around Navy stans would be throwing all kinds of shade. So keep it real. Idk what the big deal is, both women are beautiful and successful. Beyonce’s just accomplished and respected more but its to be expected. She’s been in the game for 16 yrs. and one of the best performers out right now. She’ll always have 1 up on Rihanna because she has raw talent. Rihanna is still bad ass though. Real talk.
