Ever keen for attention, Rihanna sent the net aflutter this morning with a shot of her latest tattoo.
Goddess Isis, as she christened her, sits in quite the interesting position and is a tribute to her recently departed Grandmother, “GranGran Dolly”…..
It goes without saying that the model’s body is hers, so on and so forth. We just wish she’d put a fraction of the time she puts into fishing for photo opps into her actual craft.
I mean punchlines aside, she has actually made strides as a performer. Yet seven years in, those strides could easily have been made within seven months. Put simply, the hunger to better her artistic self seems low on her “to do list”. And until it rises, she’ll have to keep churning out an album a year and singles a plenty to stay “relevant”. Why? The mediocrity of her everything has birthed no (real) lasting “moments” musically. Everything is so geared towards “today” vs what could be her legacy “tomorrow”. Had the Madonna‘s and Janet‘s adopted the same mentality, they’d have burned out before being able to p-e-r-f-o-r-m into their 40’s and 50’s.
Anyway, enough of my rambling…
