After handing her a record breaking world tour and her first US #1 album, it’s safe to say the last twelve months have been nothing short of joyous for Pop Royal Rihanna.

Rihanna frightened many-a-viewer (for unintended reasons) with her latest video ‘What Now’, but she may not be done with her antics yet. Now re-teaming with her ‘Love The Way You Lie’ co-star Eminem, the duo shared the snap above on Instagram today from the set of their ‘The Monster’ video.

Last week Eminem & Rihanna scared away the competition with their ‘Monster’ debut on Billboard Hot 100.
Alas, their roar – nor the ‘Roar’ of a certain Katy Perry - has managed to frighten the likes of Billboard champion Lorde as her breakaway hit ‘Royals’ claims the throne for its 8th week.
But, as the gap between ‘Monster’ and ‘Royals’ closes, there are others newcomers on the prowl for the top seat as well. Cue Lady Gaga…

On the singles’ charts intermittent songstress Rihanna is not a force to be reckoned with, she is the forced to be reckoned with.

Is this bad news or just a sign of the times? Weigh in below:

She may lack the acclaim afforded to the Pink‘s, GaGa‘s and Beyonce‘s of the world, but there’s no denying the power that lies in Pop sensation Rihanna and ever fruitful brand.
Indeed,while she’s yet to spawn a performance or cultural movement that earned Janet Jackson and Madonna their ‘icon’ badges, the power that lies in the singer’s name has seen her top Billboard’s ‘Hot Tours’ tally, after her ‘Diamonds World Tour’ reached heights that may give many of her rivals good reason to consider her a potent threat.
