Without a doubt, Rihanna is and will be for sometime Pop’s reigning singles Queen.
However, much to her dismay, she has always struggled to impress outside of the charts- facing the shame of ‘Battleships’ Box Office bombing and her lack of a US #1 album seven years into her glowing career.
Now, her latest project ‘Styled To Rock’ is facing the axe after pulling in lack luster viewing figures in the UK.
Rita Ora continued on in her international promo efforts last night, when she wowed fans on the first day of the 2012 ‘Atlanta Pride‘, in support of National Coming Out Day.
