rihanna that grape juice1 Weigh In: Is Rihanna Pops Leading Lady?

With vocals that still leave much to be desired and a non existant performance style, very few could have predicted the success that would be amassed by Pop singer Rihanna when she debuted in the May of 2005.

However, by way of a proactive management style, an ear for spotting potential hits and an ever growing radio pull, the once shy and reserved Island Princess has gone onto become of the most renown entertainers of her era.

So popular, she now boasts of besting and sharing records set by acts seasoned enough to have inspired the acts she herself cites as influencers.

Now, with her latest cut ‘Pour It Up’ edging nearer to Platinum status and her ballad ‘Stay’ continuing to dominate the Top 5’s the world over, TGJ asks…

Is Rihanna Pop’s Leading Lady?

…and if not, who is?

Weigh in below!

    YES she is, she’s The Most popular among them.

    NO Questions Needed.

    But Since I like to keep it real , i wish her to be more serious about her Craft and her Live Performances.

    She got the HITS , she got the charts in check , she got the looks , the style , the fashion , the attitude , the personality , a life story that can be a movie , etc… i can go on and on , she’s just awesome , but can really be so much better if she worked harder.

      I don’t know why ppl thumbed down your comment, bc you are speaking the truth. I love Rihanna to death, but her stage presence needs some work. I hate that she doesn’t dance that much b/c I know she would kill it. She needs to learn how to command a stage. I think she’s kinda lazy when it comes to her performances. Some stans just kiss too much ass and hate to hear the truth. SMDH!

      Very well said, no ONE person is at the top. Rihanna is definitely one of pops leading LADIES. But i wouldnt put her above madonna, katy, gaga, beyonce, taylor, adele, hell, she might be at the bottom of my list however, she has a formula that is working so well right now. She is very popular. Now what she needs to improve is an entirely different story that i wont start on today. Aside from that, if you notice, bey, katy, gaga, and others arent out right now and havent been out much, releasing new music or promoting anything toward the end of last year so who has been rihannas competition?

      Katy Perry’s album sales after 3 albums are not even over 10 million. Have a seat! Kate Hudson is the biggest flop of all time, just 1000 copies sold LOL. One Of The Boys has sold as much as A Girl Like Me with more singles. Teenage Dream has sold between 5.5-6 million while Good Girl Gone Bad is over 8 million (even though ChartNews reported that it has sold 9 million copies, but ok). Katy has sold a bunch of singles, more than Rihanna during her first 3 eras but she is surely not as successful as her. Plus she is pretty local, she sells singles well mainly in the English speaking countries, out of them not that much. :/

        So we’re counting Katy Hudson as a studio album release now? I don’t even believe it was released outside of California. Besides, it was a gospel album with zero promo on a label that went bankrupt shorty after.

        A Girl Like Me has not sold 3 million copies world wide like One of the Boys has and GGGB(which definitely hasnt sold 9 million) came out 3 years before Teenage Dream.

        Katy ties Rihanna with most #1 singles on the Billboard Pop Charts and is close to her in overall #1s despite releasing only 1/4 as many singles. Rihanna has never debuted at #1, had all the singles off an album sell over 2 million copies(All but TOTGA sold over 5million) or have 5 #1 singles from one album.

        I Kissed A Girl and California Gurls topped most of the countries they charted in. Teenage Dream was certified in Austria, Chile, the Middle East, Italy, Mexico, Argentina, Belgium, France, Columbia, Denmark, the Philippines, Switzerland, and Germany. Local artist can’t do that.

        Yes, Kate Hudson is her album, they count it on Wikipedia as her first studio album, not my fault Titty Gimmick Perry stans try to hide its floppage and exclude it from her discography.
        A Girl Like me has sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide for sure. It has sold 2 million in The USA and the Uk alone, 1.35 in the usa and 655 000 in the Uk.
        Good Girl Gone Bad left chart in March 2009 (MediaTraffic) when it was at 7.5 million, so it has sold over 8 million copies 100%. It sells at least 50k in the Uk (in 2010 was over 100k)/Usa. ChartNews said 9 million copies, not me.8+ million is a fact!
        Katy sells singles very well, no one denies that but you cannot say she’s bigger than Rihanna because of that. Plus she’s never had an iconic song as much as Umbrella. Her music is forgettable. When she released Thinking Of You, the only non dance single, she flopped. Without bubble-gum pop songs she wouldn’t be relevant. I would like to see if Katy could smash like Rih with a song like Stay.

        A Girl Like Me hasn’t sold 3.5 million copies, stop the lies. I Kissed A Girl and California Gurls were just as big of hits as Umbrella. Rihabna has never unspired millions with a song like Katy did with Firework. Please have a seat. You can’t say Katy’s singles are forgettable when Hot N Cold, Teenage Dream, Last Friday Night, and Firework still get airplay. Katy’s singles last longer at #1 too. Most of Rihs #1s only lasted 1 week at the top.

        And last time I checked, Waking Up In Vegas, I Kissed A Girl, Part Of Me, The One That Got Away, and Teenage Dream weren’t dance songs. Wide Awake peaked at #2 and it is an electro ballad. And b**** bye, Rihanna has released 7 generic albums in a row with no signs of artistic involvement or growth. She is as manufactured as Britney.

        And honestly, didn’t they teach you in school blt to use Wikipedia as a reliable source? Regardless of what it says, Katy Hudson wasnt a studio release.
        You are dismissed

        A Girl Like Me HAS SOLD over 3.5 million copies, just deal with it. If AGLM has not sold over 3.5 million coipies then neither did One of The Boys. Both album did the same numbers even though Katy had more successful singles.
        I Kissed a Girl and California Gurls are as big as Umbrella when it comes to sales but they are not iconic. Both songs are already forgotten by GP, while Umbrella made many list of Best Song of All Time. The longest running #1 in the UK last decade, 10 weeks at #1 there. Katy could never. We Found Love spent more weeks at #1 on Hot 100 than any Katy’s single, plus the video won a Grammy (Katy has yet to win one).
        Rihanna songs get airplay as well, what’s your point? Rihanna songs are always sung in music competitions like X Factor/American Idol/The Voice. The only song they use from Katy is Firework. Umbrella is one of the
        most covered songs of all time, with so many parodies. Its cultural impact was so huge that they even made umbrellas with Riri’s signature, when will Titty?
        b**** please! All those songs you mentioned are songs with dance beat. Electro ballad? Lol really? I would like to see if she could slay with a song like Stay/Unfaithful.

        And b**** bye, Rihanna has released 7 generic albums in a row with no signs of artistic involvement or growth. She is as manufactured as Britney. – This was the biggest lol ever. Like really? b**** don’t even try it. Katy’s music is generic bubblegum pop and all her songs sound alike. Rated R shits on all Titty albums com,bined when it comes to quality. Rihanna is younger than Katy and Katy sings about her Teenage Dream, California Gurls. Your opinion is s*** and h** you will deal ;)

        Is Titty Perry suppose to be an insult or are you just trying to say she has great tits? Unless you can provide some receipts that prove me wrong I refuse to believe AGLM has sold 3.5 million world wide.

        You either live under a rock or you’re delusional if you think Katy’s songs are forgettable. California Gurls was the best selling single of 2010 and I Kissed A Girl was ranked as one of the Best Singles of the Decade as well.

        Lets not with Grammys when Rihanna didn’t win her first solo one for her own music until 2011, 5 albums later.

        You clearly don’t watch The Voice because Teenage Dream, E.T, Part Of Me, and Hot N Cold have all been covered as well as Firework.

        Please explain to me how TTT LOUD GGGB AGLM and MOTS aren’t generic. Please explain to me how Circle the Drain, Not Like The Movies, and California Gurls sound alike. You keep making yourself look like an ass.

        Lets not b****. Katy plays the guitar and writes her own music. She’s involved in her music and image. Rihanna’s tired bad bitcj gimmick is so forced and fake, your just delusional to admit it.

        Im not even going to bother with the records Katy set and broke with the Teenage Dream era alone including tying your fav with 1/4 as many singles on the Pop Charts, 5 #1s off 1 album, moat #1s off one album on the Dance and Adult Contemporary charts, settingg the record for most airplay in a week with E.T then breaking it with Last Friday Night, etc etc.

        b**** you are clocking no one. After 3 albums Titty’s album sales are under 10 million. 1000 + 3.5 + 5.6 is 9.1. Rihanna was over 12 million after Good Girl Gone Bad and she recieved a plaque for that.
        You can refuse to believe it, I don’t give a f*** because the album has sold over 3.5 million for sure and Mediatraffic moderator said that it’s close to 4 million, plus you have site Fanmusic and they have it at 3.6 million.
        Umbrella was the best selling single of 2008 so what’s your point? The sales don’t matter when it comes to iconism. Her songs are catchy and generic and everyone forgets them easily. Who uses California Gurls nowadays? I Kissed a Girl and Firework are maybe the only two songs that are remembered. I barely hear them on music competitions to be honest. We had our version of X Factor here and no one used Titty’s songs. S&M, Russian Roulette and Where Have You Been however…

        Please explain to me how TTT LOUD GGGB AGLM and MOTS aren’t generic. Please explain to me how Circle the Drain, Not Like The Movies, and California Gurls sound alike. You keep making yourself look like an ass.

        MOTS is not generic at all, who was doing that kind of music back in 2005 beside Rihanna? GGGB as well, there were not songs like Umbrella back in the day. AGLM is not generic, maybe some songs but the album has reaggae ballads,r^b songs mostly. Loud and TTT are. But all Tity’s albums are generic for sure. She didn’t bring anything new on music scene that wasn’t there. Besides, what kind of impact did Katy make?

        Rihanna has directly influenced artists such as Justin Bieber,[258] Ellie Goulding,[259] Kesha,[260] Demi Lovato,[261] and Willow Smith.[262] Additionally, British singer Rita Ora said of the singer, “I admire Rihanna. That work ethic and discipline is hardcore.”[263] Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay, has stated that he believes Rihanna is “the best singer in the world,”[264] and praised her, “amazing voice.”[265] Mary J Blige supported Rihanna’s prominence in the industry, stating, “I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing. She is speaking to her generation.”[266] Speaking of their collaboration on “Love the Way You Lie”, rapper Eminem applauded Rihanna’s contribution and said he felt, “only she could pull it off.”[267] Cheryl Cole said she admires the singer and further commented: “I love that sense of freedom about her. She’s gorgeous and free. A perfect pop star.”[268] Selena Gomez said of the singer: “I think she’s very strong and classy. I look up to that. She carries herself very well.”[269] In 2013, English singer-songwriter Dido also expressed her love and admiration for Rihanna.[270]
        Rihanna has certainly made a lot of impact on music scene, many artists try to copy her sound. She has a lot of clones – Willow Smith, Paige Thomas, Rita Ora, Alexis Jordan. No one copies Katy because she is predictable and her music is trash.

        Rihanna plays the drums and she co-writes most of her albums as well. She was the executive producer on most of them. What’ s your point? Anb lets not even try to compare their singing because Katy doesn’t even have a decent live performance. She can’t sing and dance at all to save her life.

        Too bad all those records are about singles because we all know that Titty can’t sell albums :/ And b**** please! Look at her chart perfoamnce in non-speaking English countries. Most of her #1s from TD era were from the USA/New Zealand/Australia/The Uk. She has never had #1 single in France. Her singles performed better during OFTB, Hot n Cold and I Kissed a Girl reached #1 in more countries than all her singles from TD combined.

      Good Girl Gone Bad is Rihanna’s most successful era and it came before The Fame. It brought to Rih 3 World Music Awards, also for the best selling female artist so ofc she was slaying in 2007. Umbrella is one of the most iconic songs from 2000s. GaGa’s music is generic and repetitive. I mean, did she ever release something that is not a dance song? You and I and Speechless are the only non-dance songs she recorded, plus she is white. :S

        Nope, can’t agree with you. GGGB was only successful because of “Umbrella” nobody even remembers the other shitty songs she released. In my opinion, her “Loud” era is her most successful one.
        Umbrella is to Rihanna, the same way Bad Romance is to Gaga.
        And who cares about how much dance songs she released. What about Rihaana’s nasty ass singing about s**, cunnilingus, & fellatio every chance she gets?
        Oh wait, since it’s Rihanna it’s ok.

        Girl no. Disturbia, Don’t Stop The Music and Take a Bow are widely known and played on radio nowadays. The same can be said about The Fame, it was successful because of Poker Face, after that single her album started selling rapidly. Loud was great but GGGB remains her best and most successful era. Umbrella was IT song that helped her career going up and it’s still one of the most iconic songs (among with Crazy In Love and Poker Face). Bad Romance is very overrated, Poker Face >>>>
        As if Lady Gaga doesn’t sing about s**.. Lets have some fun this beat is sick I wanna take a ride on your disco stick? Lady GaGa said that Poker Face is about bisexuality.Hm?
        I don’t like Rihanna songs about s**. :S My fav CD from her is Rated R, especially songs like Russian Roulette, Cold Case Love, Fire Bomb, The Last Song. My new jam.

        I disagree. “Rehab” “Don’t Stop The Music” “Hate That I Love You”& “Disturbia” were huge hits, with the latter hitting #1 on the Hot 100. “Loud” was also crazy successful, but GGGB pretty much solidified Rihs name in pop culture. :)

        @ Likica – Gurl, Lady Gaga doesn’t pat her p**** on stage in front of an audience though.
        I agree “Rated R” was a good CD though, that was the first and last CD I bought of her’s though.
        All her other material could really fallback though.
        @ Navy Sailor
        There will always be that one song that turns a singer into a superstar but I still think “Loud” was more of a success overall.

    Rihanna is the top leading lady, whether ya’ll want to believe it or not! It sure ain’t Beyonce, her last album was a flop! Yea Beyonce is all over the place, but not all over the music charts, that’s where she should be, she’s a singer right?! She just wants to draw hype to herself as usual. She was smart though, I have t give it to her. Beyonce put out her world tour first without any music. Why cause she knows she will most likely flop. I hear she’s scrapping her new album because two of her new songs (Nuclear and Bow down)are already flops. And for you stans, don’t argue this until she puts out a good album.

It still was a deep album and one of my favs by her. “Nuclear” is a DC song that wasn’t meant o take off and “Bow Down” is a song to satisfy the BeyHive and keep the other stans and Keyshia ass pressed. As far as I’m concerned Rih stans can’t say anything about album sells and flopped singles. Do you remember “If Its Lovin…, ” “Te Amo,” “Rockstar101,” “Wait Your Turn,” etc. I love all these songs, but they didnt do well at all. And you and the Navy know it.

      Beyonce’s “flop” album sold 310,000 copies its first week and 1.3 million overall; It was also a big critical success and is considered her best album musically. Beyonce is an actual album artist now so she will probably be less worried about making music for slutty white people to grind to.

      Meanwhile Unapologetic debuted with 240,000 and is currently at 860,000; and Pour It Up will probably be it’s last sizable pop hit.
      Talk That Talk featured a megahit “We Found Love” and debuted with 198,000 copies and ended with 1,015,000.

      Overall, Rihannas successes aren’t quite on the level of Beyonce’s “flops” commerically or critically (64 and 61 on metacritic versus “4”‘s 73).

Pitiful considering Beyoncé has never sold anything less than 300k first week and as a matter of fact has gone gold in the first week with sales of over 500k. When will your fav?

        A Girl Like Me was ok. It gave us one of her best ballads – Unfaithful. Honestly, Unfaithful >> Stay. Break It Off should have had a video, I am sure the song would have smashed so hard with video. It still sounds fresh and catchy. A Million Miles Away and Final Goodbye are nice ballads, A Girl Like Me too. SOS ofc, amazing dance song! The rest is blah. :/ But it wasn’t generic at all.

        What kind of BIG impact did Lady GaGa have? We have not seen nothing new from her that Madonna hasn’t done before. She’s a Madonna knock-off who tries to copy Madge’s music and style. She is very successful and popular but I don’t see her impact. Who tries to wear meat dresses, hair hats beside GaGa? No one is copying her style. Her music is generic, repetitive pop dance which was popular because she appeared on music scene. Rihanna did dance music with SOS, Don’t Stop The Music, Disturbia, Push Up On Me before Lady GaGa came. She relies more on gimmicks than on her own music. I admit it, she is talented but not as impactful as Monsters think she is!

        You’re lying!! The whole “bought” awards thing is old and b*******, she earned them with her talent. If it was that easy Rihanna would be loaded, right? And we all know Rihanna wanted to be beyonce back then but it wasn’t working. Her team had nothing to do with that, her image NOW her team had a EVERYTHING to do with. We all know its fake and is not the real her, she’s still Beyoncé’s step daughter at heart.

      NOPE. POP means you are popular. Rih is more popular, all the kids wanna be like her. Beyonce , to me, is fading RNB diva, she was never a pop star. Not even close LOL have you looked in thet charts? And if having a number 1 is so easy how comes beyonce cannot get canot get any number 1 at the moment? She has Brits, world music awards, AMA, billbaords and grammy’s, and that does not make a pop star. Norah jones won 5 grammy’s in one night….is she a POP STAR?

      Beyonce is no popular with kids today.

      WHAT is gaga next album flops? Then what? Taylor is country like Shania Twain and Adele is adult like Sade, dido and Norah jones, who all faded away…

      ADMIT Rih is the leading pop girl She is the one why is popular among all kids, She is seen as s** symbol; she is on the cover of magazines; she has just sold out INNOU stadium in Turkey – the first black person and teh second woman after Madonna, as well as the youngest. She is teh youngest person to sell out Stade de france and Twikenham in the UK. She has sell out clothing lines, fragrances, SONGS AND ALBUMS THAT KILLING UP EVERY GLOBAL CHART WITH EASE, videos that slay up youtube, huge twitter followers, facebooks likes, and instgram.

      SORRY, but no one in 2013 comes close. I am not sure GAGA WILL either. Gaga is now seen as annoying crazy caricature with boring wacky antics. On her next era, she better no come with wack outfits or born this way mantra. She needs a complete makeover or she is DONE!

      Rih even has clones: Rita Whora, Alexis jordan, the girl from xfactor, willow smith, eva simpson. JLO even ditched her longtime stylist to hire Rih’s ex stylist from the rated R era. She is seen as fashion queen who is loved by tom ford, Stella maccartney, Armani, Jean paul gaultier. I have seen Keri Hilson , Ciara and even beyonce try and copy her edgy style and wear designers she PUT ON THE MAP.

      Kyle minogue, who copied madonna, has ditched her manager of 25 years to sign with rocj nation and work with the dream and stargate. SORRY YOU can kill yourself or not, but YOU ARE GONNA DEAL with fact hat as of 2013….RIH IS THE LEADING POP GIRL.

      Not to mention she made Mikkye Ekko, Calvin harris, Asap rocky, chase and status and stargate famous. As well ester dean and makeba riddick. AND JAYZ biggest number 1 is when rih is on teh track, same with TI/

    Of course she’s POP leading lady. Hoes wanna talk about album sales but for your information Rihanna has 6 multiplatinum selling albums.

    Adele slays everybody with album sales, shes #1 for album sales.
    Rihanna Slays everybody in the hit department, since 2005 = 12 #1.
    Shes #1 with singles.
    Beyfraud, katy, kesha, Christina, Britney are #1 in what ? since Adele slays with album sales and Rihanna with singles ???

    At least Rihanna has a REIGN in something.
    In pop Culture, a HIT single is the most important because it is what lives on and make someone a legend/icon. It grabs all the attention (in the media, on social websites etc). it makes you shine over other artists. Rihanna has INTERNATIONAL MEGA hits. Her Reign in European countries (but not only) is unbelievable (look up the charts).

    Her facebook likes in a clear result of this, everybody likes rihanna cause there is at least one of her hit song that someone likes. She has marked this generation.

    Because of her powerful versatile voice and being an executive producer for all her albums and co-writing on numerous songs, Rihanna can change her sound from album to album ( reggae, rnb, pop, dance, electro, alternative…)She has a unique way of singing…She knows how to bring life to a song through her videos ex: We found love, the video is as popular and loved as the song (yes haters, look it up,Rihanna worked with the directer for that video, it is clearly based on her life etc)

    Rihanna is edgy, possesses a unique tone, is controversial, unique sense of style and fashion.
    Shes a real POP star. In Conclusion she is pops leading lady.

      Let me add to this, I too thought that TTT was a mess, but then I started realizing how good it actually was. She could of gotten 3 #1 off that album forsure. and im bitter U Da 1 didnt do better, i like that song Just like i LOVE Please Dont Stop The Music that too should of been #1. But hey it gave Rihanna one of her biggest Global Hits WFL. I appreciate that album now.

    Let me put it this way, since 2005 the pop scene has had one constant and that RIHANNA

    she went head to head with beyonce and bday
    amy winehouse and back to black
    leona and whatever her album was called
    katy and one of the boys
    gaga and fame
    justin bieber and whatever his album was called
    adele and 21
    then katy, gaga and justin again

    guess what while they had their spolight moments riri shared the spotlight with them when they faded in the backround in between eras riri still held the spotlight

        The fact that Rihanna is a black girl who is relevant on EVERY continent makes her pops leading lady also. Unlike most of “the other ladies” the BULK of her popularity and sales does NOT come from America. She is INTERNATIONAL babe. So you can miss me with the FB and twitter stuff because that’s only a SMALL PERCENTAGE of her popularity.

And once again, you are not understanding my comment because not once did I say was she not popular. Theres no point debating.

    AS OF 2013 SHE IS THE LEADING POP GIRL AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST STARS IN THE WORLD. She is the front covers of men’s global mens magazines, global fashion magazines, she has all the kids on facebook, twitter and instagram. Her videos own youtube, her life is tabloid fodder, her style is loved by the BONAFIED fashion world and clones alike. She is doing movies – peter berg and steven spielberg no she cannot act, but they still hire her cos, she is the leading pop girl, duh! She is only 25, yet she done stay on that forbes list, she is so famous that even her BF ex GF has a ” career ”.

    She stays on your mall; male and female fragances, sell out clothing lines and makeup line, this is more than JLP brand.

    Let us talk music: Whether it is reggae, trap, hip hop, rnb, pop, rock, ballads, dubstep, dance etc Even remix’s in USA, Europe, Asia, latin america and africa…..she is the winner.

    I think honestly, at this moment in music. Yes. Rihanna has a strong hold on all aspects that make Pop music relevant. She has a constant list of successful singles, she’s fits into the ‘I don’t care’ vibe of this generation, and she is is a staple on social media. I think she should be concerned as fads change, but she is ever evolving.. so I can’t count her out.

    I would put her in a list of main contenders like Lady GaGa and Katy Perry, but Rihanna possesses what they both lack (GaGa- consistency.. Katy-Social influence)

    Simple Answer: Hell No

    But, like Beyonce said there are many queens in Pop. Rihanna is the singles queen- i’ll give her that. Most artist grow and evolve after a certain amount of success and choose to produce songs that have meaning. Since Rihanna isn’t there, and will probably never be, she’ll only be as good as her latest single.

    When she is dropped from her label…I mean takes her break, she will be replaced. There is a reason why she never took a “break”. The Navy better start saying their “Good Byes”…

    Now, Rihanna’s catalogue on just about every item is damn near flawless. She has at least four to five number ones on EACH album which makes each one of the SOLID. Rih has to come a prove herself with each album and she does that. I think many years from now, Rih going to be looking at Madonna money because she is a phenom!!!

My point exactly, you never give Beyonce credit , for anything, and have yet to say anything positive about her, regardless of what the situation maybe. Because you don’t like her. Which means you display a negative bias. Whether it be positive or negative…generally your comments are bias.

        “Rih has set the bar so high at this point, falling short only shows you have NOT what it takes to run with the big guryls let alone trying to snatch Rih’s crown”.

        You’re wrong. Beyonce’s best album, by far, was DIL which I bought and enjoyed but after that all the awards and praise she gets is riding off that and her history with DC. I even liked DC until the fuckery started happening. Beyonce is way overrated because based on what she’s actually done, she’s not that good. What she has actually done on her own merit that really can move you like DIL? Every album after DIL has gone down in quality and you know it’s true. The rest of the albums she put out after were fillers to keep her fans buying. She hasn’t really been challenged in the game until Rihanna. Now, Bey must step up her game which I don’t think she can do in all honesty.

        @ Dray I’m wrong? Not from what I’ve observed. How am I suppose to feel any other way. When you persistently revert to name calling and non factual claims. She’s not that good??? Subjectivity at its finest lol. Every album has gone down in quality?…Not in my opinion. As a matter of fact “4” was my favorite album thus far. So idk what you are talking about. Though it wasn’t a commercial success, vocally it was her most mature album to date. Whether or not you think she’s good is pointless. I don’t think Rihanna is a good entertainer…and. I don’t hate Rihanna as an individual like you do Beyonce, because I don’t know her. As a matter of fact, I like a few of Rihanna songs. Does that mean I respect her artistry…No. Until Rihanna stops regressing vocally I will continue to feel this way. Because hit singles are great. But those hits don’t hold any value if you can’t back yourself up with talent. For you to say Beyonce is not “that good” is mind boggling to me, since you stan for Rihanna. Being that she is no where near the vocal technician/tour act that Beyonce is. And Idk what you mean by “she didn’t have a challenge until Rihanna came along”. At the moment, yes Rihanna is very popular, I’m actually capable of admitting that. But generally Rihanna is not the only popular female in the industry. Gaga has always proposed much more of a threat in that regard. Because not only is she an exceptional performer as well, has really good record sales. So I disagree with you once again. Not only that, the fact that you hate Beyonce with a passion, and constantly call her names just because you don’t think she’s good. Is beyond ridiculous and childish smdh.

    Adele went Diamond off 1 album, which btw still sells today. But just to be fair. If all those ladies (Beyonce, Adele, Taylor Swift, Madonna, GaGa hell even Katy perry) all released 7 albums in seven years it would be safe to say that Rhiannas 12 #1 wouldnt mean anything. Im sure all those ladies would have so many number #1’s that having the most number ones would be irrelevant. Face it, most artists release an album every 2 to 3 years because if the album is made well, people would still be talking about it years after, thats the true test. I’m not a psychic or anything but if Rhi took a break like all the other artists in between albums would she still be relevant? Someone prior tried to make an argument stating that Rhi has 12 #1’s to Katys 5, difference is Katy got that many of one album, Im sure if she had released 7, her numbers would be alot higher. Theres more tweens out there than urbanites/Suburbanites so its safe to say that she would have surpassed 12 number ones. I stan for no one but ill just state logics.

I love her for what she is, but im not delusional enough to think that her music is epic, cause it isnt. FYI Umbrella wasnt even written for Rhianna, 2 other artists turned it down before her management purchased it for her, So that could have been anyones “hit/#1″

    The Beyonce Stans (Led by Tyty and Tina) are just shook.The Hype machine worked for so long that Bey started to believe it. Its simple, her Dad knows about product placement, present it as the “best”, act like its the “best”, tell everyone over and over again that it is the “best” and people will believe it.

    Beyonce is not the best. Her whole image is Tina T meets every Artist in the History of Music

    She does not have her own identity and does not have the depth to create one (thanks to her parents taking her out of school in 4th grade)

    Every great artist has a story, Beyonce’s story is acting like she is the best. And all this great performance, its a whole lot of p poppin and wind machine, without that and the Tina T-esque blond wig, legs

    What is she really. Her music is disposable, as she will soon be from the musical landscape.

    The tour is NOT sold out and as it approaches that will be apparent, I wonder how they will spin that!

      look back to every time the other girls had an album and u will realise that when they had their lil moment in the sun riri was there too sunbathing right next to them.

      when the other girls release their albums that wont push riri out the way, she will be right there. so yes riri is the leading lady

    gurl Adele is Pop Music with Soul leaning(due to her influences)

    Tyalor is Pop..nothing about her is real authentic country like the media portrays..compare her 12 year old music with Shania and Faith…Even Carrie for a current artist.

    Rihanna has something that catches people’s attention. And no it’s not just about her chart topping hits and albums. It’s her personality,unique voice, edgy persona. Say what you want but before Lady Gaga came into the picture Rihanna was already trending.Everbody wanted to do the edgy goth look when they saw Rihanna do it. Beyucki with IamStinkFlop, Keri Hilson, Lady Gaga, Willow and more. Rihanna is the #1 female pop icon today.She is not the best vocalist but that doesn’t mean she won’t be a legend.

      Rih slayed with that look in Disturbia and her who Rated R era. . .to this day, I think that goth/S&M edge rocks on Rih. . .. . . . .I even like that look she had in Rehab–it wasn’t as dark but still had edge

    She’s no pop royalty, just an “it” girl. In the same realm of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Ke$ha. Shes done nothing to innovate or change the face of the industry, at least for the 21st century.

    Britney – Pop’s biggest teen queen. Wasnt the first, but was the first teen star to show how huge an icon you can be. She kind of took the “female icon” label to another level.
    Beyonce – showed how to be a consistently energetic and powerful performer while also having a powerful voice.
    Christina – our generation’s “Voice”.
    P!nk – brings something new to the art of performing in this generation with every project.

    If Rihanna didnt have hit songs and an ever changing hair style, I don’t think she’d be as big as she is now. I feel like contestants on American Idol grow more as artists throughout a two month competition than Rihanna has in an 8 year career. And thats the T.

      You just killed your whole tirade. . IF SHE DIDN’T HAVE HIT SONGS. . what kind of fuckery is that? She’s an singer–that’s what she’s suppose to do. If she has a good ear and knows what songs she can sing and take to another level by staying in her lane then why not give her the credit due. Britaney was NOOO Babs yet she did her thing. . .Rihanna definately stands out in the pack. If she didn’t she would have been long gone before now. She has set fashion trends and her songs have been spot on so how can a it girl last a decade? “It” girls are temporary and Rih had been inthe game a LONG TIME— STARTED at age 15.

      Ashanti was an “it girl” honey. Ciara was an “it girl”. Both of their careers peaked after 3 or 4 years. Rihanna has been at it for 8 years, and has yet to falter. She is no “it girl” boo.

    b**** please.

    Beyonce can’t really be compared to anyone including Rihanna. As f***** up as the truth is, y’all b****** need to here it. On this hierarchy of success, talent and longevity Beyonce is at the top.

    The Current Queens of Pop (in no particular order)

    Mariah
    Madonna
    Janet
    Beyonce
    Britney Spears(The b**** is talent-less, but her achievements speak for themselves)

    The Princesses of Pop
    Gaga
    Nicki
    Adele
    Taylor
    Katy Perry
    Rihanna (The b**** is talent-less but her singles chart reign is commendable)

    ^These b******, with the exception of Adele (she’s no b****), have the potential to be queens.They are the heirs to the thrown. The only thing they lack is longevity.

    Rihanna has been in the game for 7 years, yet she can be replaced tomorrow. -___-

      Lmao y’all have been saying that she can be replaced for YEARS. No dear. Ashanti can be replaced. Ciara can be replaced. Katy Perry can be replaced. Ke$ha can be replaced. Rita Ora can be repl…nevermind, you get my drift. Unless they go to the islands and find a black girl who’s equally as stunning and can succeed in reggae/hip hop/R&B/pop/dubstep/electronic/dance, Rih WON’T be replaced! Remember when they tried with that Shontelle chick?? Kiiiiii

    No she still has a lot to live up to and prove before she can be called that. Gaga came and shut s*** down with her influence, Beyonce has garnered the respect from longevity, being a great performer and keeping up there with new girls, Adele is just Adele she slaysss. Rihanna is very mediocre and has a lot she needs to work on before people will SERIOUSLY give her that title. And I feel like this generation has more that one leading lady its a lit less definable. But shes up there with all of them but is hardly miles above the rest in all the avenues.

    Its more of an alligance of girls that have DOMINATED the pop scene for quite a while. Giving just one the crown doesnt make sense because they all have strengths in different areas. The guys have had a hard time keeping up with them. The heads of this alligance are Gaga Beyonce Rihanna and Adele. Katy and Taylor are also a part of it. And of course Britney is the princess of pop for what she achieved in her prime you cant take that away.

    Rihanna is not the Queen or Princess of anything. Rihanna is just captivating to look at. She has no vocal abilities what so ever, she cannot dance, she cannot write strong songs at all. Wow, her names was listed as a co writer on a few of her songs, big womp. Rihanna just has a huge catalog of hits to fall back on. Her album sales are actually below average considering how big she is. Britney, Christina, Beyonce, Pink, Alicia, Mariah were all selling multiplatinum albums with just 2-3 Top 10 singles or #1s. Rihanna has 6 songs on the Hot 100 and her album has only sold 850k in the US. Pink has only released 3 singles but her album has sold 1.5 million in the US, Beyonce failed to any major hit off 4 but it still sold nearly 1.5 million in the US, Britney came out of nowhere with Femme Fatale and she sold 1.5 million within a few months. Rihanna is one of these artists who lets her fans pump her up. If Britney, Beyonce and Xtina really wants to come back and s*** on all these hoes they easily could. Mariah, Janet amd Madonna have just been playing around too. How many b****** nowadays will sell 100 millions, break touring records, change the scope of the music industry and pop culture, Rihanna sure hasn’t and won’t. Hell, Gaga has changed Pop culture more than Rihanna and she hasn’t did s*** in 2 yrs and I can bet money when she drops ARTPOP, it’s gonna be platinum in a month and multiplatinum a few months after that, can’t say the same for Rihanna who’s about to relese her 4th single off a album that’s been out for nearly 5 months and has yet to go platinum, but she’s Pop’s leading lady when er Vogue cover sold less than Gaga, Adele and Beyonce…

        Boo please! US is not the only country in the world. What about the UK? She has two album that have sold over 1.85+ million, Talk That Talk has sold over 1 million weeks ago. A Girl Like Me – 655 000 and Rated R – 705 000, Music of the Sun – 150 000+. Rihanna has sold more albums that Britney in the UK and Brit has never had #1 album there. And 4 has sold 1.32 million in the USA and ~2.6 million worldwide, so more that half of its sales come from the USA. Unapologetic has sold 860 000 copies in the USA and over 2.6 million worldwide, the same amount of albums that 4 did in 2 years. :/ Plus Rihanna has old 9.5 million albums in the USA and ~29 million worlwide, almost 20 albums outside of it.
        Femme Fatale had 3 top 10 hits in the USA and has yet to sell over 1 million. I love Xtina but lets not act like Bionic and Lotus were not commercial albums. Both had dance singles as lead ones and yet flopped, both albums combined have barely sold 1 million. Rated R had a ballad as a lead single and managed to sell 3 million copies.
        What has Lady GaGa changed in pop culture? Her music are generic, dance, repetitive songs that were popular v
        before she step on the music scene. Rihanna had dance songs before LG, Sos, Don’t Stop The Music, Push Up On Me etc.
        Rihanna is executive producer on most of her albums, she cowrites her music. I wouldn’t call generic dance songs strong singles because GaGa songs sound the same, the only two songs that were not dance from her are Speechless and You and I. You and I flopped worldwide, it did well just in the USA.

        For those who say that Rihanna doesn’t have any impact – Rihanna has directly influenced artists such as Justin Bieber,[258] Ellie Goulding,[259] Kesha,[260] Demi Lovato,[261] and Willow Smith.[262] Additionally, British singer Rita Ora said of the singer, “I admire Rihanna. That work ethic and discipline is hardcore.”[263] Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay, has stated that he believes Rihanna is “the best singer in the world,”[264] and praised her, “amazing voice.”[265] Mary J Blige supported Rihanna’s prominence in the industry, stating, “I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing. She is speaking to her generation.”[266] Speaking of their collaboration on “Love the Way You Lie”, rapper Eminem applauded Rihanna’s contribution and said he felt, “only she could pull it off.”[267] Cheryl Cole said she admires the singer and further commented: “I love that sense of freedom about her. She’s gorgeous and free. A perfect pop star.”[268] Selena Gomez said of the singer: “I think she’s very strong and classy. I look up to that. She carries herself very well.”[269] In 2013, English singer-songwriter Dido also expressed her love and admiration for Rihanna.[270]
