The Independent Weighs In On Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds Tour’

Published: Wednesday 12th Jun 2013 by David

Hours after she touched down in the UK for the British leg of her ‘Diamonds World Tour‘, ‘Let Me’ star Rihanna has seen the show come under fire from Alexander Lebedev‘s ‘Independent‘- who have hit the show with a scathing review.

Read below!

Via ‘The Independent’:

“Massive stadium shows by massive stadium-filling pop stars tend to come with a concept. When fans are paying upwards of £60 a ticket, it pays to put in some effort and go all out on spectacle.

Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Madonna festoon their shows with fireworks, crazy hydraulics, “meaningful” am-dram narratives and a vast supporting cast of choirs, dancers and circus performers. Rihanna, who has had more No 1 singles than Beyoncé and Gaga combined, does none of this. Rihanna’s concept is her vagina.

Given that the mega-selling Barbadian pop star spends a large proportion of her leisure time tweeting close-ups of her arse cheeks to her 30 million followers, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that her crotch gets top billing here.

She strokes it, she thrusts it, she jiggles it, she spanks it and then she strokes it some more. The Diamonds tour is essentially one long celebration of Rihanna’s lady-parts. Rumour has it that, at the end of this tour, her vagina will launch a solo career. It would be churlish at this stage not to wish it well.

And the music? Seven albums in seven years has ensured that a Rihanna set isn’t short of hits, even if some of them are lost in the sticky sludge of trashy Euro-techno/R&B fusion.

Her set is divided into five acts, broken up with costume changes and apparently reflecting the various facets of her career (who knew?). It opens in muted fashion with the singer kneeling in a black cape, studded thigh-high boots and hotpants in front of a female statue on a video screen while singing “Mother Mary”. It’s a rare moment of calm in the relentless and ultimately wearying bump ‘n’ grind- fest to come, which reaches its apogee in “Rude Boy” (“Come here rude boy, is you big enough?”) and “Jump” (“Ride it my pony/My saddle is waitin”). Throughout all this Rihanna’s face remains impassive and inscrutable.

There are moments, however, when she lets the sex-bomb mask slip. For the stomping, Nineties-style raveathon “We Found Love” she emerges in a sequin-encrusted, dollar bill-smothered puffa jacket and matching trainers that EastEnders’ Bianca Jackson would deem too tacky, punching the air and bouncing into the crowd to commune with fans. It’s here that the show finally comes alive. Rihanna breaks into a smile and her nether regions take a well-earned break.”

Ouch.

It would appear yet another paying customer has seen past the smoke’n’mirrors that guard Rihanna, and eyed the nothingness she has to offer as an entertainer.

Indeed, while most nocalists perfect their choreography and general stage presence to distract fron their shortcomings, Rihanna’s habit of strolling around her stage semi-present will never cut it….not even when her sales stats are thrown into the mix.

Yes.

No.

    • HALF AMAZIN June 12, 2013

      Sam is Rihannas biggest fan. She keeps this flop ass blog going. He wants so badly for her to respond to him and shade him in one of her tweets to get some publicity but she pays him the dust his dust butthurt ass deserves!

      • SongWriter June 12, 2013

        But the questions is…..WHY is it that reputable Artist, Journalist, FANS* and blogers have a common opinion about her? ask yourself, “am i paying to see Rihanna because she’s a DOPE performer/Artist, or am i paying for a ‘Lets get f***** up while listening to Rihanna’ experience. the bottom line is talented or not she doesnt put on a great show period. thats NOT* shade! How am i shady for paying 150.00 plus to SEE* an Artist* perform* yet when i get there shes hella sloppy, late, sitting down during “Turn Up” songs and sounds…….not like the records she produces. This is not to say Rihanna doesnt have a place in music by any means, however the facts are the facts. shes not entertaining live. period. To be considered a great you have to do great things. Shes good at #1 hits, until she hits the stage. #MuchRespectToHerandHerFans

        SONGWRITER You are a looser.com
        No one and i mean not a single person is giving one
        hot dam to what a crossed eyed ,fish eyed bat on a blog that bashes the hell out of Rihanna on a daily has to say.
        PeopleCanKeepThe Shyt TalkComing.Net
        Rihanna is doing something right because she keep Winning and as compared to your liking ,less say you and
        99-people on this post dislike Rihanna and all that she stand for then that still leave the rest and the World to make the final decision as to weather they want to see her or not,not your Crack Meantality A***.

        If you and the others who is doing the Most if your Theory was right then,,,,why didn’t people get the hint when Rihanna sold the 02 Arena out 10x on her “Loud Tour” How was she still ableto Book this tour and is still getting Paid,dumb ass.
        Why is there sold out on many if these tour stops,explain that to a grown up jackass.

        See you and the likes of you talked shyt back then and you are still hooked up to the same hate that she has, MadeItAnd.Net And YouArePressed.RoadRunner.com
        And to make You and your friends even happier just think there is a possibility that Rihanna’s V Jay Jay might be going Solo after this Tour , and working the details out right now.,Keep right on LYING to yourself and pulling things from your b*** to say about it.
        Rihanna has learned the Rules,therefore she will always know how to break them Properly, why not do yourself a Favor and Learn How to Succeed even when people sentence you without a trial to hard Labor.

    • whenindoubtthetruthwillout June 12, 2013

      This “blog” gives a whole new meaning to the words HYPOCRISY and BIASED.

      You re-publish a negative review of Rihanna from a newspaper but yet did not re-publish a negative criticism of Beyonce from a recent edition of Billboard Magazine criticising her for copying ideas.

      You have no standards of professionalism!!!!!!

      Theres no one in the Game whos any Sexier, Rauncy, More Entertaining or shows as much Skin as Rihannna does and none of them Plays in their VjAY,On stage like she does and its all apart of who she is and she Owns It.

      • AbzLovesBey June 12, 2013

        You sound like a r*****… I love Rih, but she is not a great performer. Simple as! S** kitten yes… Performer no!

        I attended her world tour show last year at the O2 and she was 2 hrs late. When she eventually came out she was high as a kite, and gave a mediocre performance!

        Die hard fans can be so blind at times! It’s all about status and money… She clearly doesn’t enjoy performing (anymore)!

      • MuiMui June 13, 2013

        Rihanna don’t have to ever be a great Performer to you it do not matter at all,because she caters to those who loves her.
        And to all you bitter birds shes not begging you to like her in the first place ,love the one you or with and leave Rihanna
        along stop clicking on her post.

    • stephanie June 13, 2013

      Yes the independent are biased! It is owned by Rupert Murdock!!!! Do your research please; if it was coming from the BBC or the Guardian I might listen. The independent is one of my least favourite papers. And far from credible!

Sounds like your fighting the facts. She’s just not the level of artist that can transend stages. it is what it is…. #NowBackToOurscheduledProgramming #MuchRespectToHerandHerFans

      • B. Hill June 12, 2013

        Rihanna’s butthurt fans think that no one else dislikes her but the Hive. Newsflash: plenty of people — some Beyonce haters included — can’t stand RIhanna’s punk ass. What’s to like? She can’t sing…she can’t dance…she can’t act…she can’t perform…she has a trashy image. No one with tastes likes Rihanna. Real talk. Only queeny kids between 12 and 22 like that no talent h**, simply because they don’t know better.

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      Bytches be mad cause shes stroking it and patting it on stage and its a part
      of who she is and many love that about her.
      Its not her fault that she do not want to try and hang it out to dry and put a rope around it , and opening it wide like many of the pole dancer are always doing its okay for them to pop,squeeze drop it like its hot , and let their pocket change fall out on stage out of their Purses and Yet You are Bitter because Rihanna chooses to stroke,rub and pat her Purse let her if that is what she want to do. You call her ugly, h** and Yet you are sitting over there looking like a Two day old Tu*d talking shyt about a chick who has clearly got it made if she never rub her VJay again on stage.
      And i like the article they wrote its right on and no matter what we all know the Media are savages and Rihanna is doing great to be able to deal with the things that are level on her. If she was not doing the dam thing then there would not be write ups like this it goes with the territory and she and her team know this and so do many of her Fans. Its not Rihanna Fault Maria and Beyonce did not want to Rub There Fat Ass Cat’s on stage that is a personal choice,dumb asses. Rihanna beat them to the Punch because the Media talks about her showing Skin, and How she and Her VJay jAY are shutting Ventures down.

        The ‘Loud Tour’ was amazing. I saw her twice.

        I can’t wait to.see Bey. too. 😉

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 12, 2013

        Rihanna is the embodiment of ” Fun” and “care-free” life , she’s just being herself , flaws and all and ppl love her, stans of other less-successful females will always be mad at her and clearly we have zero f**** to give about them or their favs.

        “who cares how you haters feel ? ” 😉

        don’t know about the lesbian thing tho and i don’t wanna discuss it, not interested.

        “Skin” gives you again that bedroom s** realness, Robyn is a freak i’m telling you. 😆

  19. Navy Sailor June 12, 2013

    Truth be told, rihanna is worn out. Compare her energy on the Loud tour to the DWT. It’s like an entirely different person. Although she did an awesome job when DWT came to my city, some of the clips have been less than f****** stellar. I want her to take a break, regroup and come back with new energy, a new choreographer and creative director because her current ones aren’t cutting it. I love how the same b****** are the first to flock to her posts with the same old b*******. Rih has y’all b****** sounding like broken records.

    AND YES RIHANNA CAN TAKE A BREAK, RETURN AND SLAY. And your fave, yes YOUR fave will not stop her. 😆

  20. Nu Nu June 12, 2013

    The fact that people pay money to see the b**** live us just astounding to me. All she does is prance around the stage in skimpy costumes, touch herself, yodel a couple of notes over a backing track and do a couple of stiff stance moves. Her stage presence is so WEAK her backup singers had more energy than her. Hell she sat down through half the damn performance! SMH!

    This reviewer was right on! Send this stiff yodeling b**** back to Barbados!

    • Navy Sailor June 12, 2013

    So… Now I see why other sites bash this one.

    I suppose we are just going to completely bypass an d ignore the ‘positive’ reviews made about this tour from renowned newspapers/tabloids and magazines such as: The Daily Mail, Billboard, LA Times and The Chicago Tribune etc…

    Why not post about some of the negative reviews that “YOUR FAVE” received on their tour @TGJ?

    Then again, why are we even bothering? This is Samantha’s site and he will continue to do as he pleases. Us commenters are just supplying him with more ‘readership revenue’ and he’s profiteering from it.

    Whatever >>>

    • Navy Sailor June 12, 2013

      *waves* heyyyy boo! You know how it goes….shady Rih post, LQ video clip, bunch of Hive trolls hiding behind other artists….and the cycle continues lol 😆

      I dont know which ‘fave’ of his you are specifically referring to but one in particular hasnt got ‘scathing’ reviews like this.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 12, 2013

        I’m not talking about ‘BEYONCE’…

        I love Bey.

        I’m talking of the “other one” he continues to ‘praise’ whilst he ‘disses’ Mariah.

        No names shall be mentioned.

        Oh ok cool just makin sure.

    • BionicGlam June 12, 2013

      Sorry Jared but you’re missing the point. Even if TGJ didn’t post this, it was the Independent who gave the review so be mad at them.

    • TeenageDreamer June 12, 2013

      Please find me ONE review where Beyonce was dragged like this.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 12, 2013

        I am NOT talking about BEYONCE.

        I know Bey. is FIRE in concert… I’ve seen her TWICE and will do a third time next month.

      • SongWriter June 12, 2013

        why dont YOU NAME a REPORT* or a paper where it read that Beyonce was a poor performer…..PLEEEASE keep your emotions and facts seperate. This is about Rihanna as a performer*** if you love riri or bey thats fine!!! but the bottom line is Rihanna is NOT a good live performer…..period…..thats thats. #NowSayGrace

      “Then again, why are we even bothering? This is Samantha’s site and he will continue to do as he pleases. Us commenters are just supplying him with more ‘readership revenue’ and he’s profiteering from it.”

      If you know all that, then why are you bothering to read or complain, you dumb ankle grabbing homo?

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      JARED now you know that would be to much like what is right and with Rihanna its all about the Negative aspect and even if there is positive they always skip it and clown her anyway. It want be long before somebody who can’t get this many people together at one time in the same place to save their lives start talking more mess about how bad and how her music isn’t great always something with Rihanna and it will never stop even until the end of time.
      Many of the blogs has to make it a debate in order to get feed back and Shes news no matter what and bills have got to be paid some how Rihanna Bills are sure getting Paid and on time.
      Remember there are Twenty artist i could name who have not Performed to a croud of 80,000 in their entire Career or in their Dreams.

    Oop

  35. Mark111 June 12, 2013

    I like that this tour is raw. I think people are used to all the light, fireworks, 99 dancers on a stage, and all other crap that trows you off. For Rihanna to rock a show with just a drum set, some backup singers and a screen and still sellout, then I would be scared if I was a Bey, Gaga, Madonna and Britney stan as well.

  36. RiRi Bad June 12, 2013

    What are Mariah fans so pressed for ? Yall love to hate on the young b****** smh grow up!

    It does not matter anymore what is being said: she has now made history. The youngest and only black to sell out black to back global stadiums.

    THAT IS ALL.

    • rih is now a legend; youngest person to sell out stadium June 12, 2013

      Beyonce made 2 million in Germany. RIHANNA made 2.5 in NYC. HA HA HA HA HA RIH tour will destroy beyonce tour numbers.

      WHEN does beyonce’s new single come out?

      • steph June 12, 2013

        RIHANNA IS NOT THE YOUNGEST PERSON TO SELL OUT NO STADIUM BYE GURL

      • rih is now a legend; youngest person to sell out stadium June 12, 2013

        YES SHE IS, LIVE NATION confirmed this. It was not BRITNEY, and there has not been a young pop star as big as rih. GAGA IS / LOOKS OLD.

      • MuiMui June 12, 2013

        They named GAGA when she was 26 and Rihanna has broken GAGA’S Record right now.

  39. ImJustSayingDOBETTER June 12, 2013

    WOW, that grape juice…you suck! Instead of congratulating our fellow black young woman for accomplishing so much at a young age, you Bash her! Now if she were to kill herself because of the mean & hurtful things you guys say on a daily, I’m sure yall would feel some type of way! Get it Together! Stop Hating! Start Congratulating! I’m not a big Rihanna fan, but i’ll never knock someone’s hustle.

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      You said it all Anger and hatred is like a Fishermans hook ,it is very important for the haters to make for sure they don’t get caught in it.

  40. Lets keep it real for once…why does TGJ hate Rihanna? June 12, 2013

    Ok!This is coming from a tried and true of The Hive. Before there was a hive, circa whenever! Beyonce was my face.
    I’ll go in on the navy, but not for just a random reason. TGJ, why can’t you let Rihanna be great? I mean yeah she isn’t that great of a singer or performer. Yet she still sells records has hits, sells out stadiums. I don’t see what the big issue is! Im not fond of her, I don’t care for her “MUSIC” but I just feel like you guys are always trying to go in on her for no reason. Why not talk about how Kelly is going to flop in two weeks! Or how the music is so terrible on the album even working with the neptunes produced mediocre results. Why hasn’t Mrs.Carter(I Love Bey) dropped a single yet? Why is Ciara such a flop, that getting a Top 40 is considered great? So on and so forth. At the end of the day, Rihanna is doing her thing! Im in no shape, fashion or form apart of the navy but the blatant bias is terrible and not fair.

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      This right here and this Blogs and the people who frequent them and beat their drums to the Rihanna Media news so hard someday will learn that the only thing that Sweep clean is a new broom and that Rihanna is a Force and a part of the Music World we all live in and knock her all they want shes still in it until she get enough. So unless its a new artist who can sing like a mocking bird there is always going to be ups and downs with them.I often see many say she is a huge star and she should have sold more well Performing for these Huge crowds says it all and no matter how they slice it shes doing her thing and at least shes Bragging about how proud she is of the people and her fans who make these things possible just wonder how do the Blogs and this one included expect to change the world and the people who love Her mind about Rihanna How can you take the most popular artist in the world and make them seem less than say Beyonce,Kelly and Rita how can you change people minds about her.
      People who says that she can’t perform to me that is like saying you can make yeast Rolls rise without putting the yeast in the mix.
      Rihanna need to just keep being the best she can be and to hell with the rest and the blogs don’t pay her anyway.

    • Dray June 13, 2013

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      Rihanna do not need a haters Respect,Ever.
      As long as she Respect her Fans and get respect from them they are the ones who’s lifting the tide for her that is what count, dumb ass always talking about Respect ,who respect you and Respect do not pay our bills.
      Rihanna know that when the going get Tough you know haters, blogs and the media she have a mind set to get even Tougher.

  44. Mother Monster June 12, 2013

    The fact that you can post on this but not post on Ciara getting served is some BS… The hate for this girl is REAL.

    And sorry Navy dont ever come for Beyonce and her same ‘tired c****** poppin’ performance because those same ‘tired c****** poppin’ performances are getting her excellent reviews.

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      Rihanna playing with hers is getting her excellent reviews and keeping the seats filled. And beside that Beyonce isn’t the only performer in the world dumb ass.
      They named Beyonc e didn’t they and did you see what they said about her and the others Rihanna is the one who is shutting shyt down her and her V***** PRESSED PIG.

  47. RealARTISTlover June 12, 2013

    Rihanna really is a hot mess. Don’t get me wrong she’s Beautiful and can sing mono tones great, but dang, she really sucks. Maybe she should be a reality star. That’s basically what she is anyway. Then she jumps on stage and gives half ass stiff whack performances. I love Beyoncé, GaGa, Brandy, Mel Fiona, etc. cause they’re talented real artist. They grew up in this industry before personal lives influenced your musical careers. Social media has ruined everything lord. They cherish and value they voices and work so hard to perfect it. Trying to stay relevant matters unfortunately but talent always speaks for itself. I mean youtube Beyoncé from childhood, her work ethic and performances GO HARD! She always gives it her all and the reminds people she sing. I mean I just can’t wrap my head around Rihanna being #1. She can’t b the standard. I would never pay to see her on tour. Her teen babies can have that.

    I just miss the old days… Congrats #Navy ,but on what? Numbers? Damn show no RESPECT……

    • Melissa Forde June 12, 2013

      Gaga and Melanie Fiona came out after Rihanna. What are you talkin about

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      Rihanna been doing a good job of sucking and just think she has been sucking since 2005.

    • Dray June 13, 2013

      Why you so mad? Channel that energy towards hoping your fav drops a single or album or anything instead of seething as mine makes histoRih. . . . . .

  48. Dev June 12, 2013

    Oooooh! This made me laugh hard!! And i’m sure that the independent reporter is not black, but is serving all kinda urban blog shade. The independent is a reputable newspaper and this is what they have to say..

    • Dev June 12, 2013

      … saying all of that i prefer Rihanna’s vocals to Cheryl’s. Cheryl maybe able to dance and bounce around on a stage she sings worse than Rihanna…. much worse.

  49. #BEYINDEPENDENT June 12, 2013

    TGJ you also have to remember you stan for Nicki Minaj you call Rihanna out but never call her out Nicki has the most basic performance skills out there she makes Rihanna look like a beast on stage… I feel like your more jealous & envious about rihanna its not really about her talent or lack there of if it was you wouldn’t stan for b****** like Nicki Minaj J.lo & Ciara

  50. Bey Fan June 12, 2013

    I’ve said before,i dont like Rihanna live . but Im sure there are some better reviews than this.

    But ppl seem more upset with sam than they do with the Independent….

  51. MyPenIzFresh June 12, 2013

    Everyone receives bad reviews. Rihanna is still selling her tour. But I do agree a break might need to come in her future. she is losing energy, and Rihanna’s shows thrive on the energy. Like Beyonce, Rihanna is now overexposed, so her expectation level is TOO high. It’s not fair to expect SO much from these girls.. they’re human.. no matter how big their stars are, or how large of a fanbase, they are Normal Women.

    • xedos June 12, 2013

      the media don’t decide if you’re overexpose the fans do. she use to sell out arena no she sells out stadium . the fans voted. give it a break. there is no such thing as overexposure. if Kim Kardashian can still make millions off everything she does their is no such thing as overexposure. Only the haters use that argument. wihen you check the bottom line the statement is false. how many artist leave the scene and try to come back and fail. Xtina , no doubt, i could go on. every artist has a certain time to make large sums of money and if they don’t capitalize on it they’re an idiot . this s*** don’t last for ever. especially for women. Once they have kids the media turn on them.

  52. TheTRUTH June 12, 2013

    It’s interesting how TGJ post negative things about Rihanna, but there’s BARELY anything positive. Also what was the point of putting this article up? How come TGJ didn’t post the negative reviews about Beyonce? OH, cause they’re Beyonce fans. SMHH

  53. Melissa Forde June 12, 2013

  54. Dirty Diana June 12, 2013

    Im not here for the Rihanna bashing its wrong be fair treat everyone the same… She’s a young gurl all you people do is judge & criticise her no ones perfect

  55. ЛИКИЦА (ЈА АКА ТИ НЕБИТАН) June 12, 2013

    Ofc you would choose to post a negative review even though there are good ones as well. It’s a shame how much you hate this woman, like she did something really bad to you. A normal person wouldn’t even hate the biggest enemy like you hate Rihanna. Seriously, you need help Samantha, as soon as possible, I’m not the only one who’s saying that here!

    Anyway, I was at RiRi’s concert in Belgrade during Good Girl Gone Bad Tour and she was fire, I really like her performances from that period. I would always pay to see her anytime. She doesn’t need to have the best voice in the world, her charisma, beauty, interaction with her audience is what make people go to buy that ticket. At least, Serbian audience knows it 🙂

    Did they lie? All she does in every show is pat her STD-infested puss while lazily lip-syncing/half-ass singing to her mostly forgotten if you didn’t hear the first couple of lines singles discography.

    • Navy Sailor June 12, 2013

      Rosie, shut the f*** up. You are Robyns biggest fan seeing as though you clock her every move. S*** I see you in rih posts more than I see my fellow navy. I’m convinced that you are a fat, overweight, unattractive trailer trash white girl who has no friends and gets joy from hating on others. You are worth less than the dirt on the bottom of my shoe. A penny with a hole in it has more value than you. Continue to be a big fat hater, and enjoy life at the bottom of the totem pole you f****** turd.

      This will be my last time addressing your pathetic ass. 🙂

      • Rosie June 12, 2013

        TL;DR.
        Go buy Riherpes’s low budget, local River Island line that she had nothing do do with except for promo while everyone else is having $1000 designer bags designed for and named after them.

      • ЛИКИЦА (ЈА АКА ТИ НЕБИТАН) June 12, 2013

        Hahaha you are really pressed. Rihanna is fashion iconj, I can’t say the same about Lana.

        Anyway, go buy Lana Del Ray a.k.a. Lizzy Grant so that can finally sell at least 1 copy 😀

      • Jessica Simpson Stan June 12, 2013

        Didnt know Lana del flop had stans tbh

      • Rosie June 12, 2013

        @B**** with random ass name Why are we still worrying about indie albums when your major label debut has outsold 5 of 7 Forihead albums?
        @Jessica Simpson Stan Please, when was Jessica’s last hit? Video Games alone was bigger than her entire discography.

      • ЛИКИЦА (ЈА АКА ТИ НЕБИТАН) June 12, 2013

        And too bad none of her albums will see Loud/GGGB numbers. And A Girl Like Me has sold as much as Born To Die, 3.6 million worldwide.

        If you were a fan, you would do Lana a favour and buy at least 1 copy. 😉 You are a flop stan :/

      • Rosie June 12, 2013

        Um, Born To Die is at 3.7 million, almost 3.8.
        And her indie, non major label album isn’t and never was on iTunes, Amazon, or any other major label retailers. Started from the bottom, now she’s here outselling most of your faves, etc. Meanwhile all STD-rih did to get here was suck off every exec. at Def Jam. So happy to be stanning for a hard worker and not a w****.

    Lol at the Navy pretending like it was Grape who made the article. Let’s say for argument’s sake that Grape Juice are haters and are biased against Rihanna, what does that have to do with an unbiased person from a broadsheet dragging her performance.

    • Dirty Diana June 12, 2013

      why post on a bad review when everyone gets bad reviews yet they doesnt post about them

    • MuiMui June 12, 2013

      they post on Rihanna Bad Review that means that they are saying that shes the ONLY one who get Bad Reviews and that is furthest from the truth and many don’t ever get the kind of attention she get so I suppose people want to try and make some feel that Rihanna is the only person the Media fries alive.
      This blog is helping keep Her name on top and it is funny how Rihanna usually speaks her mind but has never addressed this site even when they add to the story lines of all their post on her .

  64. Aynon June 12, 2013

      It useless to argue about a dumbass opinion–not review–if Rihanna’s puss has certain people that hot and bothered–it’s safe to say she is a major force. Why do we need to argue the obvious–Rihanna has made history and the sold out stadiums are receipts for what she does. Nobody else did what she did soooooo why argue against a mute point?

      • Aquarius June 13, 2013

        The obvious is: Shes still a S*** performer. Stadiums or not who wants that reputation. But you guys are ok with that? Typical low standards Navy.

    Can someone explain why the Navi are bashing the Sam and the Hive when it was the Independent who did the shading. Rihanna was trash and a major newspaper exposed it and now the Navi don’t know what to do with themselves.

    • BrandNuStar June 12, 2013

      That’s what I want to know.

    • Dray June 13, 2013

      You must be new here to ask that question. . . .

  83. StrangerInMoscow June 12, 2013

    The saddest part about these comments is that none of Rihanna’s fans denied what the journalist said. Says it all 2bh.

    • quetta June 12, 2013

      Rofl..they never deny the truth, they just try to talk about other peoples faves to geg the attention off of them

  84. FentySoSnatched June 12, 2013

    1. TGJ are bloody haters when it comes to the Queen.
    2. I’m not going to sit here and bash them because they do slay the other blogs and if the other ones were that good we’d be there and not here right now.
    3. F*** TGJ.

    • PhuckYoFave June 12, 2013

    • Lana Del Slay June 12, 2013

      Christina’s problem is over singing but at least she has a voice to oversing with. Her belts are still strong and her range is still there, where is Mariah’s?

    More hits than beyonce and gaga combined should be enough to shut this fool up!

  99. Marley June 12, 2013

    Well Im not surprised really all the bad press shes got around the tour from turning up late, being drunk and high, not apologizing etc.

    • ashley June 15, 2013

      She only performed 30 minutes at her show in Boston that was rescheduled from a show in march, she lipsynced the whole thing and was three hours late. And after the show she was tweeting how much she loved Boston and a lot of people in Boston were extremely upset about it because it was a week and a half after the Marathon bombings and she offered no apology as to why she was late. She’s unprofessional.

  100. KELLY June 12, 2013

    So what? Rihanna isn’t famous for her talent. That’s not news.

  101. Rosie June 12, 2013

    That was for that h** with the Russian/Georgian username or whatever.
    The hell is going on with this comment board?

    Them stadium stats got Sam HOT. Hating ass f**

  108. Hadley June 12, 2013

    Oh wow If I was a hardcore fan of hers I wouldn’t care about stadiums when its getting overshadowed by her bad reputation on stage. It looks better playing to a crowd of even 500 people and getting amazing reviews than playing to that many and being ripped apart by fans and press alike. Shows how shallow some of you fans are.

    • Dray June 13, 2013

      Oh,I see. . .that’s what your fav is doing right now. . .500 or less. Now I understand your point. . .and it’s dismissed. They have therapy for your issue. . .or do you have insurance? Obamacare kicks in soon. . . .

      • Hadley June 13, 2013

        No my fave is an international household name actually. And my point still stands to reason. So would you like to retract that ‘wishful thinking’ assumption of yours?

  109. King B>Rihanna June 12, 2013

    Hilarious how everyones mad at tgj but not saying anything about The Independant when they are the ones spillin allll that tea and shade. You know they are right.

  112. sammi June 12, 2013

    That last clip was actually from her tour? LMAO! I thought that was a rehearsal, that stage was naked as hell lol. I would never watch one of her concerts even if it were free. B**** dancing looks like a horse that was scared by a snake and started backing up their hooves lol

    • Dray June 13, 2013

      . ..and she gives not a fux about whether you here, there or on a ship twirling around in space . . . . . She sells out stadiums. . .trust, your support is not missed. Kiiiiii

  113. quetta June 12, 2013

    Rofl…I can’t. My stomach is hurting.

  114. kangofpop! June 12, 2013

    Sorry but Rihanna is not that great of a live performer and that’s not really arguable. She’s lazy and I think she can do wayyyy better she just doesn’t really give a sh*t on stage. Yes she is winning as far as singles but as far as performances naww…..

  115. HOWYOULIKEIT June 12, 2013

    Well, this is it in 2013. Music has really come a long way. I remember TLC and En Vogue in the 90s. It was something different

  116. Suicide Blonde June 12, 2013

    I wrote this yesterday in another hateful Rihanna post, my analysis on why Rihanna is compared to Madonna, another hated Pop Star, one word, it’s because she is killing all her peers, she is doing the same thing Madonna did to her peers and the fans of those can’t forgive her.

    Mark my words

    She is as hated as Madonna is, like Madonna’s once rivals, all of them will have to live in her shadows for years to come despite some being more talented in many things than her, Rihanna will still be touching her V***** and struggling to sing and dance in 50 years, she will erase all the black girl’s legacy and influence, Janet, Beyonce, ect, ect…won’t win over her, in 20 years people will make threads discussing how the hell happen that Beyonce faded and Rihanna became a huge force in the music industry, no matter if she improved in the future with her performances, vocals, lyrics, she still will be criticized for being a s***, a w**** who in the eyes of people who worships other people skills, don’t deserves to be so revered, famous and successful.

    Like Madonna she is an easy target to villainize, is always Rihanna said, same with Madonna, other are victims, they are the b******, the mean girls and i love it.

    In Rihanna’s short career how many beefs she has had with her peers, how many of them has dissed her, and how many times Rihanna is seen as the first to throw the shade, ALL THE TIME, like Madonna, i don’t saying she is on Madonna’s level but i can see where the comparisons comes from.

    Madonna’s peers:

    Janet Jackson
    “If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all. If I did hate her, I’d have good reason to.” (on being asked if she can or can’t stand Madonna)

    “Madonna doesn’t sell that many records anymore.”

    Michael Jackson
    “What is it about her? She’s not a great singer or dancer. She does know how to market herself.”

    “They admire you and know you’re wonderful and great but they’re jealous ’cause they wish they were in your place, wish they were in your place and Madonna is one of them, she’s not a nice person, i get the fainting and the adulation and the notoriety but she doesn’t, she can’t get that.”

    “Madonna is revolting. She’ll just be forgotten.”

    Paul (aka: me[Suicide Blonde], about MJ on M)
    EXCUSE-MOI!!!!…so she wishes she was accused of being a p********, she don’t have the adulation, the fainting, the notoriety…..OKAY.

    Whitney Houston
    “If my kids turn out like Madonna, I’ll drown them.”

    Cher
    “There’s something about her I don’t like. She’s mean. In my opinion Madonna could afford to be a little more magnanimous and a little less of a ****.”

    Mariah Carey
    “I really haven’t paid attention to Madonna since I was in like 7th or 8th grade when she used to be popular.”

    It’s funny how things turn out and how the hated one, the w**** of Babylon is now the most acclaimed, successful among them.

    Watch people deny it, they never said such things about Madonna, Madonna started first because she was jealous, Madonna is a b****….

    Dear Navy, the more they hate her, the bigger she becomes, there is something called KARMA and that always makes you pay what you owe.

    Watch Rihanna succeed where her peers, those who are humble and talented FAIL.

    • quetta June 12, 2013

      But beyonce gets more hate than anything #tryagain and madonna is irrelevant. The only shine she gets is when talking about gaga #NEXT

      • Rach June 12, 2013

        Exactly @Quetta. The worst Rihanna gets said about her is that she is a h** and untalented. Whereas EVERYTHING Beyonce does gets over analysed. Even down to simple tumblr picture. That instagram ‘lowlife’ picture that the media blew up wasn’t even from her own IG it was fans and now everyone thinks she calls her fans lowlifes! Prime example of media manipulation. Just because Sam doesn’t talk about half the bad stuff on this one small blog, doesn’t mean its not there. And just because Beyonce gets praised by many sources, doesn’t mean the real hate is not there.

    • Rach June 12, 2013

      Im sorry but Rihanna doesn’t get any more hate than any other pop star right now. TGJ is a blog that shades her just like San. Ros. does the same to Beyonce. Look at all the negativity and nasty rumors and lies made up by the media about Beyonce ever since DESTINYS CHILD shes been the baddie. She cant even take a dip in the pool with her baby without articles saying shes trying to kill her child. All the things the independent said about Rihanna wasn’t far from the truth.

    • Slayty Perry (The Female MJ) June 12, 2013

      Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Ciara, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce get just as much, if not more hate than R******. Your theory is flawed. Besides, with her album sells, Rih is not “killing” any of her peers. She’s in the back of the pack. And dont pull the tired race card and say “she’s doing well for a black girl”. Im not here for it.

    • Emeral June 12, 2013

      Theres no comparison. What hate has Rihanna had that’s so much worse than anyone else? She doesn’t even get hate from her peers. Only beef shes had is with Ciara. And who is that? No one has dissed her like that.

    • Dray June 13, 2013

      REAAADDDDDDDDD

    • Sass June 13, 2013

      @Quetta @Rach @Slayty Perry said it perfectly.

      • Sass June 13, 2013

        And @Emeral

      • FAF June 16, 2013

        Ciara is the girral thats had R**** pressed since she danced w/ CB on stage we know R**** hates that look how much s*** she talk about Karrueche some unknown b****., jealous of her looks & exotic features R**** is ugly #facts

  117. MuiMui June 12, 2013

    Rihanna you are loved the world over and its great to see that you not buckling under the pressure of haters and those who see you as taking over and they are bitter birds.They have often times compared others to God almighty and tried to past themselves off as such but just know that just as a man/woman is walking their dog down a street on a leash and the dog starts jumping and trying to get off that leash and the Owner pulls upon the leash Remember that ,for what its worth God has a leash on the Devils neck and can pull up on it when He get good and ready. So let them talk until they past out ,let them do what they do best and you keep doing You no matter what they got to say about it. Let them keep BRAGGING about those who are better then you and less see who’s who at the end of the year. Because if you keep going at the rate you are going its clear there are going to be many stroking out over it.And from the looks of thing many await the new music from others so we can see how it does on the world wide charts.

  118. Ajanni June 12, 2013

    If she could move she would be s***. It’s a shame I have to look at her dancers just to see what the dance is supposed to be like. She reminds me of the those paper dolls that they use to have back in the day. Completely lifeless!!!

  119. Rihanna killed beyho’s career June 12, 2013

    You people are so freking dumb. Rihanna can sing,point blank period.That’s why she became huge. If she sung like ciara or janet, she would be another flop like cassie and kelis. Face it, she can also perform live. It’s been proven time and time again.
    People come to see her live because they don’t want to hear a bunch of screaming church singers or repetitive dancing. Rihanna does a little bit of both. Not too much singing and not too much dancing.It’s all played out.
    And I don’t care what you HIVS f*** have to say. Rihanna can command that stage without powerhouse vocals and major choreography. She’s got that star quality that your fav dreams of.

    But she really needs this break so she can let you h*** breath.

    • Yaz June 13, 2013

      Tell that to the Independent. I don’t why you are mad at the Hive they didn’t write it.

  120. Sleazy June 13, 2013

    It is pressed hunty. Pay it dust.

  123. Dray June 13, 2013

    Read that heaux Sam. He stay hot and bothered as long as Rih keeps reigning. Everyone knows how she shades. Chhhhhh

  124. Leah June 13, 2013

    Rihanna was okay the first time she started but now she is just worn out and over exposed like the other commentators said.

    She needs to do what beyonce did and take a year off, it is quite normal to have a “burn out” in this type of work.
    She was alright in her “Good girl gone bad” days,she was fresh then.

    I’m not a Rihanna fan though (don’t have a f*** to waste on her) but i recognise that she is a human being so cut her some slack.

  125. Monstarebel June 13, 2013

    love her

  126. JMac910 June 13, 2013

    Man the shade thrown at Rihanna is real. Not a day can go by without at least 5 or 6 Rihanna stories posted, yet no props ever given. Damn stay off her d***.

  127. Rihanna # 1 Fan T June 13, 2013

    OH YEAH!, but when Beyonce show her skin its not a problem, Rihanna is grown let her do what she wanna do! yah be hating so hard on her she puts on some good ass shows thats all that matters , if her shows were b******* then i would criticize her outifts but she work hard! thats apart of her attire and her stage persona .

  128. RICHANDBLACK11 June 13, 2013

    Chile this is a mess, that I want no parts of…….

    Did the THE INDEPENDENT lie? Navy lets keep it 100000000 I see no lies in what The Independent stated? I think they were a lil harsh, but no lies.
