Watch: The Word On…Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’

Published: Thursday 4th Feb 2016 by Sam

After a brief rest on the bench, The Word is back!

Rihanna‘s ‘ANTI’ album release is undoubtedly music’s hottest topic and while, we here at TGJ have our own views on the LP, we had to hit the streets of Hollywood to hear what the masses have to say.

Is RiRi onto a hit with the long awaited eighth effort or led project or does she need to put in more…‘Work?’

      😂😂😂😂😂😂

      • Lolz February 4, 2016

        Did you even bother brushing your teeth? First thing you do when you wake up is check this blog! Kii what a sad life you live

      • HailBeysus February 4, 2016

        You know what’s funny? Is while i was brushing my teeth and listening to ZAYN’S Pillowtalk, the notifications went off on my phone for this post lol! Thanks for worrying about my hygiene sis but i got it covered.

      • Lol February 5, 2016

        ….anti indeed is a flop. (the ticket sales for her forthcoming show don’t look good, either.) the album itself is a quite tragic. 😭😭😭

    • You tried February 4, 2016

      Like I said on last post no one has ANTI! Navy was mad but I was just being honest!!

    • Taylor Tori Azalea February 4, 2016

      kiiiiii

      • WINTZ February 4, 2016

        RIHANNA name is so powerful that I can stand on it’s own without latching on to her peers that LEECH and her insecure minions.
        …….

        AGAIN >>>>>

        BEYwItch is like a mentally challenged student who REPEATS each term consecutively throughout school because they are Special Ed.

        At the end of said tenor that mentally challenge student:
        -Will be the OLDEST amongst it’s peers.
        -Will receive more praises for same achievement attained by peers that did it in much shorter time span.
        -Will be given pity allocades, motivational gestures in efforts to boost crippled confidence.
        Kiiiiii

        BEYneathHERpeers have been in the game 123467889….. 20 loooooooooong years and her WOW moment (which will be remembered generations to come) was her tummy deflating on national tv.
        Kiiiii

      • #JACKIE February 4, 2016

      I was thinking Mark

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 4, 2016

      Mariah the Legend came more to mind lol

    • LB February 4, 2016

      Where is Flopara on the charts?

      • #JACKIE February 4, 2016

        Ciara doesn’t have any new music out boo so of course she wouldn’t be on the charts. Worry less about her and more about The Anti Tour selling less than a box of “Frooty Loops” at the Dollar General.

      • Cinnamon Girl February 4, 2016

        Don’t worry about Ciara. At least she owns her flop and doesn’t have to cheat and lie like Rhitarda

      • #JACKIE February 4, 2016

        The GĀYvy hates any female artist who actually has talent sis. There’s no reasoning with them.

    • Adelephant (previously HYDROQINONE) February 4, 2016

      Ay Ay Umbrella Brella Ay ay ay ay, she change her swag and all that, that Girl is getting it going on…. 😂 I love that girl whoever she is

    • MadonnaThaDinosaur February 5, 2016

      chart dated Feb. 20. Of that sum, perhaps 130,000 could be in pure album sales. 😩😩😩

    y’all seen how out of nowhere , million Moo Moo stans resurrected to defend Rihanna?
    .
    the nazi are so pathetic, hiding behind Mariah
    .
    real Mariah stans don’t use frih
    .
    JohnVidal, Stephy and Dossome

    the rest are fake posers

    • OMG Logic!!! February 4, 2016

      You better believe us real lambs don’t use that basic b1tch. How are we going to stan for the peak of musicality and then defend the polar opposite?

  6. Ugggh February 4, 2016

    “Sam’s b**** too dry to be riding Rihanna this hard”
    This is true hate when you attempt to go above and beyond just to bring negative light to someone. You all have never interviewed the public about an artist’s album. I better see this for all the other albums released this year. Messy boots. You tried it! Hahahaha I can’t stand Sam.

  7. Career Ender February 4, 2016

    Anti is selling less than DEADpop and TPP and yet I still see the submarines trying to come for Queen Bey

  8. Everyone’s A Critic February 4, 2016

    What is with the rihanna fixation TGJ? The reach is a STRUGGLE

  9. Smile February 4, 2016

    Lmao… I love how the “negative” got way more airtime than the fans. Oh lord… The reach.

  10. Career Ender February 4, 2016

    I cannot see the Legendary Career Ender going back and forth with a stan of an artist who sold 460 real copies

  11. King Mark111 /.\ February 4, 2016

    The obsession! Noticed the only bitter Black girl on here was the ugly dark one and some guy with nappy, dry @ss hair? See when you’re good looking and a good person, you don’t hate. Just ask Slave_HIVe.

    • LB February 4, 2016

      That thot pretending like she is worth something LMAO, how do you hate on the biggest brand in the industry. Bish wher?

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 4, 2016

        You can tell that was the first time she got attention in a while. The dude thought that the girl was flirting, what a cornball. Ol head and shoulders needing @ss. lol

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 4, 2016

      So dark skin and nappy hair are ugly qualities to you?
      Negro! You were one of the main people screaming about how racially biased the industry, award shows, and society is towards black people. YET you have the audacity to say some self hating b******* like this?
      You sound like a f****** c***.

        @hailbeysus
        I better not EVER see Marsha trying to front like she cares about the black community EVER again. Because I’ll drag her ass off of principle alone.

      • HailBeysus February 4, 2016

        @Tyler Drag it!! Im tired of seeing that walking contradiction say one thing than another. I hope it says some ignorant s***! I want to see you drag it by the eyelids!!

    • Cinnamon Girl February 4, 2016

      Goodness, you are so lame. You know you’re losing an argument when you have to personally attack someone, right?,Rihanna is a flop. No amount of personal insults will change that fact

  12. No favs, just here for the music February 4, 2016

    I’m surprised how many people said they haven’t heard the album despite to 1 million free downloads

    • Taylor Tori Azalea February 4, 2016

      7 Billion – 1 Million

      • HailBeysus February 4, 2016

        I can’t stand your ass but, EXPOSE IT!!!

      • No favs, just here for the music February 4, 2016

        No shade though…just when asking 3-4 people I at least expected 1 to say they heard the album. Whether they enjoyed the album or not would be a different story. I also forgot that it’s technically 1.5 million…not that it makes matters better.

      • HailBeysus February 4, 2016

        Ill keep civil since your not biased and have.no fav lol! But, Right!?!?! Lets also not forget anti was streamed 13m in its first 15hrs.

      • No favs, just here for the music February 4, 2016

        @HailBeysus exactly!
        Another thing I want to point out is streaming TIDAL and the free downloads is not the only way to hear it. When an album is HOT it’s everywhere and people have the desire to hear it. Whether you hear it in a friend’s car or on Tumblr etc etc. In my opinion Rihanna is a big star I just expected at 1 person to say YES I HEARD ANTI. It honestly just surprised me. *shrugs* no shade at all because I don’t hate Rihanna or dislike her. Far from it. But even I can admit and see the rollout of ANTI was just very sloppy. Hopefully next time she will do better.

    • Smile February 4, 2016

      You know damn well they interviewed more people but cut them out and just kept the ones who hadn’t heard it yet. They edited it to be like no one has heard of Rihanna. Lmao. Reaching.

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 4, 2016

        It’s like digging and using whatever they pulled out of their @sses. How sad?

  15. Everyone’s A Critic February 4, 2016

    I try and defend TGJ but why are you bringing Beyonce into a RIHANNA inspired interview?
    It’s just mad queeny in my opinion. Like what was the point of this.. To force people to admit Beyonce is better than Rihanna?

        It’s a fact. But whatever felt you sleep in a bed with 4 other family members in housing at night.

  31. King Mark111 /.\ February 4, 2016

    I’m not entertaining the pest with their delusion and lack of reading. Everyone here were Black, but the only haters were the dark girl with missing edges and a guy with dry white nappy hair. There’s two other Black men here, dark and not hating. I’m not saying Dark skin Blacks are ugly, I’m saying people that are bitter and haters happens to be ugly, inside and out. But I understand how you guys got that mixed up, ya can’t read and this week been very stressful to the pest. lol

  32. Theman February 4, 2016

  35. DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 4, 2016

    List of excuses by the DEADvy:
    1. Its not in physical stores yet (neither was selftitled)
    2. It was leaked/free (so is LITERALLY EVERY OTHER ALBUM since 2004)
    3. Its less commercial (so was 4)
    4. Its just the first week (as if it will sell 1 million within the next 5 months)
    5. She changed labels/management (so did bey)
    … its january (which must be why kanye is expected to sell 200k+ next week)
    6. She doesnt care about sales (which is why she sold out to samsung for a platinum plaque)

They both make great music just one performs better than than the other ! We have 2 black women are so happens to be 2 of the biggest pop stars of all time in a genre ruled by mostly white women , there is room for more than one queen ! Especially a BLACK queen

    Still can’t at the Coast Guard using physicals as an excuse; physicals didn’t increase self-titled’s first week so what makes them think ANTiCHRIST will be selling 200K next week just because it’ll be at Best Buy.

      And why are you talking about sales when your main-main-main fave’s latest album is stalled at 200k after more than 4 months?
