Rihanna sat down with ‘Talk Asia’ on CNN recently. The trendy star discussed a wide range of topics including how she was discovered, her thoughts on her career thus far, Chris Brown and the direction she plans to take on her next studio album. Rihanna also delved into a conversation about her childhood and witnessing her father using crack cocaine. Great interview.

    I love this girl she reminds me of my cousin, I will admit she is not the best singer nor does she have the greatest voice. But she is so likeable, I am ready to listen to most of what she has to say.
    I wish her much success.

    Why do celebrities sit and tell all their business, expect their fans to feel sorry for them, and then get mad when everyone is talking and blogging about it. How about that little girl whose really going through serious abuse, whose listening to her story, whose feeling sorry for her. These celebrities kill me, they’ve all been abused, they’ve all had an abusive parent, and we all know a lot of them are lying. While some of them may have experienced abuse, especially in Hollyweird, most of them probably grew up with pretty normal lives.

    “These celebrities kill me, they’ve all been abused, they’ve all had an abusive parent, and we all know a lot of them are lying.”

    attitudes like this certainly don’t help anybody, especially that little girl you mentioned who might be experiencing abuse

  4. Julia Wilson February 26, 2010

    I really love Rihanna and hope she could forgive Chris brown and move on with him

  5. Soso February 26, 2010

    I wish she would stop discussing Chris Brown… PERIOD.. If she is asked about it, just say, “no coment”… I’m so damn tired of her.

  6. MushyLove_1992 February 26, 2010

    Like Rihanna, but what was the point of this interview?

  7. MushyLove_1992 February 26, 2010

    Shes milking the living daylights out of her last relationship…

    *Sorry about the double post*

  8. newsflash haters February 26, 2010

    this was a beautiful interview, idk why people are always saying she is milking the relationship. Duh it was her last relationship, and something bad happened, and people are always bringing it up. Its obvious that the darkness on her album was kind of like her release theraphy, so she is being honest. Why should she say no comment if asked. Look at what no comment did to tiger woods, you all know people don’t like to hear no comment. If she said that, you guys would say she’s not talking she has something to hide, just like you said when she wasn’t talking. When she started talking, you all want her to shut up and protect chris. Wtf. This happened to her, it was all over the news, so people want to know. Rihanna seems like a really grounded young lady, and you can tell she is in a better place now. Good for her. I am glad the interviewer pointed out just how much of a success she was before the incident, so people could stop trying to act like this incident did her a favor. If anything, she lost alot of fans because some people for some strange reason, want to take sides. It was a personal relationship, that is between the two.

  10. Ghetto Fab February 26, 2010

    Love this girl. She’s our leading Caribbean Pop Star. Do ya thang Rih!

  11. Person February 26, 2010

    She can’t NOT answer about Chris Brown if they ask about him. I’m sure her record label/management tells the people she’s being interviewed by what to not ask about, but most do so anyway. She can’t just go “no comment” because that would come off as rude. We all know how much she wants to move on and she tries to do so by saying she’s moved on from it.

  12. hihihihi February 26, 2010

    SHES BEEN THROUGH SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH IN HER LIFE AND SHES STILL HERE I LOVE HER

    SHAME ON THATFLOPJUICE FOR HATIN ON A STRONG BLACK WOMAN

  14. deejaybaps February 26, 2010

    very good interview

  15. Fred February 26, 2010

    Im confused, call me confused easily but she stated she is so happy now that the focus is not about Chris Brown anymore when half the interview was about Chris. Ummm okie dokie if you say so

  16. Jordin February 26, 2010

    @FRED
    THANK U!
    She also said she doesnt want the past to define her . There’s a way of saying no coment without being rude.

  17. Rika February 26, 2010

    wow I’m not even gonna front this was a good interview…not a Rihanna fan but her honesty in this interview made me like her a smidge more lol

  18. TJD February 26, 2010

    She is such a pretty girl and its looks like she has a great personality….she has some crazy stans though. I wish one day, an interviewer would show her some of the things that her stans say in these comment sections….she would be shocked and ashamed…and kinda scared…I’m sure those aren’t the kind of people she would like to meet.

    But I wish her the best. She deserves it.

  19. X,Y,”and Z” February 26, 2010

    Don’t y’all think THIS, not-unlike most, if not all of her interviews, is/was STAGED? She already knew the questions BEFORE they were asked; her EVERY reaction, spoken and gestured, was already, well-rehearsed, and ‘made-at-the-ready.’

    Don’t be fooled, there is NOTHING spontaneous, off-the-cuff, natural or “real” bout Rihanna; But what else could she EVER be? Rihanna is a studio-invention; a tried-and-true formula: stylists, make-up, ‘gimmicky-studio-trickery’, PR, PR and even-move Public Relations! I had said before, and I’ll say again: she’ll talk ’bout Chris Brown till the day she draws HER last breath; what else is she gonna talk bout? What interesting conversation can ANYONE have with Rihanna? What talents, besides selling-p****, could she EVER elaborate on/ about?

    Why didn’t the interviewer ask Rihanna what she meant when she said, during that, now-infamous, 20/20 interview: “No, I didn’t hit Chris, if I did, he shouldn’t have done what he did!” …Or WHY, did SHE “smash bottles upside her brother’s head?” Or, if she’d EVER hit Chris, at ANY-TIME, during the two-years they were together? …And finally, why did CoverGirl fire her? …Was it due-to-the same reason they stopped running her commercials when they thought she’d have had to testify, and her REAL STATEMENT, would THEN be read – in open court?

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!!

  20. TJD February 26, 2010

    I didnt know Cover Girl fired her!! OMG!

  21. newsflash haters February 26, 2010

    @TJD why bring up old news when CNN just confirmed that she made 15 million last year. so its 15 million plus the 20,000 not to shabby for a 22 year old.

  22. TJD February 26, 2010

    ok well thats fine and dandy. But I just put it up there for those who havent read it like me. Calm down…I’m not trying to talk bad about your queen…no need to get defensive.

  23. TJD February 26, 2010

    and the question is, Is most of that money going to her? or Def Jam? Def Jam is very Greedy…and so is L.A Ried. He has very little faith in Rihanna. So he refused to fund some of her videos and etc. Thats why Jay-Z got the hell up out of there and he has his own label. If it wasnt for the contract that Rihanna has with Def Jam, Im sure she would be with another label…and I think she would be even more successful. She paid for most of her videos through her sponsers and what not. And it is a recession…Def Jam is just being really tight with their money. Its a shame cause she can be bigger…LA Reid is holding her back!

  24. Love me some chris brown February 26, 2010

    Girl move on and stop talking about Chris trying to make him look bad, because you know you are just as guilty as Chris Brown of domestic violence, you just got the worst end of the stick. Always playing the victim, when you know that you still want to be with Chris. If it wasn’t for loosing everything she would still be with him.

  25. TJD February 26, 2010

    I agree with the last part of what you said. I seriously think that she would still be with CB if it wasnt for her endorsements and her public image

  26. Deb February 26, 2010

    What is the purpose of her periodically bringing up the incident with Chris Brown.?
    It could be she is stuck in the angry phase of her healing process partly because she refuses to get professional help. This is not setting a good example for other DV victims, Counselling would help her approprately deal with all her feelings about the DV incident and the past DV she witnessed growing up as a child. Some other reasons for her bringing the incident up may be for $$$ ( record sales)or a way for her to get back at Chris. I would like to see her get some professional help. I think she would be a better person for it. I did not know Cover Girl dropped her but some of her recent behavior has not been the best for a role model.

  27. TJD February 26, 2010

    I really want to see a link where it says that Rihanna was dropped from CG. I havent been seeing any ad’s of her lately…just Queen Latifa and Drew Barrymore. If its true, whew the things that a good PR can cover up.

  28. Ben February 26, 2010

    I liked that she didn’t hold much back, she was pretty much straight forward with a lot of info, especially with her father. I would say, out of all the tired ass interviews about her post-February 2009, this is the best one yet.Not over publicized and blown out of proportion. Regardless that I still feel that she isn’t completely innocent from the situation, this was a dead-on interview. Most celebrities won’t go this far.

    @TJD – http://omg.yahoo.com/news/dania-ramirez-being-new-face-of-covergirl-a-dream-come-true/26335 …Make note – no mention of Rihanna!

    …Even TMZ admits that CoverGirl STOPPED running her commercials just weeks BEFORE Chris copped to the charges; why? Cause she was to testify, and that meant her statement, that she made to the LAPD, would-THEN be read IN OPEN COURT!! …If you don’t think CoverGirl stopped running her commercials, and ONLY-THEN began running ’em when they thought she’d be “safe”, meaning her statement wouldn’t come to light; here’s proof: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1195407/CoverGirl-Rihanna-reinstated-face-make-brand-just-days-lover-pleads-guilty-assaulting-her.html

    There was/is something ’bout her statement, something that scared CoverGirl SO-MUCH that they didn’t want it to come-out, and IF if did, they’d – by then – would have had already distanced themselves from Rihanna. What most believe – what is NOW in the-public-domain – is NOT her statement! …It’s the Cell Phone Warrant that, if you read it (and you can, over on thesmokinggun.com) wasn’t signed by her! Don’t believe me? Well, go over there, go to the last page and see for yourselves! If you’ll notice, the last page isn’t signed BY HER! Reason being – that’s NOT HER STATEMENT! The day BEFORE she was to testify, TMZ reported that yes, it WAS SHE who was the “Aggressor and Instigator” of the violence/drama in THAT car on Feb 8th!!

    I’ve said THIS all-along: “CoverGirl was/is the 4th-party in that car,” they KNEW the truth of what happened in THAT CAR; Rihanna, Jay Z, Def Jam and TMZ has “conned” EVERYONE! Her statement, the REAL-ONE, will eventually come out. CoverGirl knows this; why – THEN – would they want to associate themselves with, or invest-in someone who, at any time, will “disintegrate” and be exposed as the violent, rampaging misandrist that she REALLY is? Why take THAT chance? …Ergo: Dania Ramirez!!
    …Oh, and if she made $15 million, why wasn’t she listed in Forbes, in 2008, CBreezy was listed in Forbes when he did that much for THAT year!

  32. TJD February 27, 2010

    wow @ X,Y and Z

    You sure do have the tea on the situation! I kind of knew that she instigated that incident. She even admitted that she had a violent past w/ her brother and etc. What is done in the dark will come to light…I hope she realizes that. I’m in no way saying that she deserved that beat down that she got. But only they know what happened in that car. So I will not judge. Def Jam is shady but even they cant stop certain info from leaking…No matter who they threat or how much money they pay. Thats just how life works. Hopefully she can get the help that she needs. I will pray for her.

  33. Deb February 27, 2010

    Wow! Very interesting and enlighting information XY and Z. For any one group of people to have so much power over another human being and use it in such a destructive way is never a good thing. What goes around comes around, Thanks I’m going to do my own investigative work. To live out such a lie is just plain evil!

  34. cool chick February 27, 2010

    she is STILL talking about Chris wtf?

  35. Jermaine February 27, 2010

    YA’LL ARE DUMB PILLS OF S***… RIHANNA IS THE BEST!! PERIOD! SHE TOLD THE TRUTH IN THIS INTERVIEW. AND THE REPORTER BROUGHT UP CHRIS BROWN TO HER U DUMB F****.

    RIHANNA IS GETTING MAD RESPECT THE WORLD OVER SO DON’T PUT HER IN A BOX SAYING… “WHY DO CELEBRITIES DO THIS OR THAT”. YA’LL HAVE NO F***’N LIVES HATERS!

    AND YES CHRIS BROWN’S CAREER IS DEAD. REST IN PEACE M*********!

  36. cool chick February 27, 2010

    ^^^^^^^ im sure you are also Nicky/HIHIHI

  37. sugar February 27, 2010

    @ XYZ

    I think chris has moved on and who knows maybe they will get back together. Chris loves her and he knows that all these interviews are only for sales. I didnt know chris was on forbes? I dont think he has that much money and even rihanna there was a rumour that she is broke, so dont let these cars (expensive) fool you. they are famous yes, but not rich.

  38. sugar February 27, 2010

    I think chris should avoild island girls and just date a regular girl 9-5 girl who is educated, good example is elin woods (she kept her mouth shut)

  39. salsi February 27, 2010

    umbrella has nothing to do wiv the way shez explain, the lyrics says something completly else, illuminati? ??? under their protection? many ppl seems to think so, good girl gone bad, she really has gone bad.

  40. Reasonable Voice February 27, 2010

    Shout out to the victim blamers (xyz, tjd). Keep it grimey, yall. Rihanna’s scars have faded. Christ Brown’s career is bruised FOREVER.

    . . . deal with it

  41. TJD February 27, 2010

    @ unreasonable voice, I didn’t place blame on anyone. Reading is fundamental. You obviously lack some reading comprehension skills. You might want to get that checked out.

  42. sugar February 27, 2010

    @ TJD

    hahahaha that was funny reasonable voice needs to get out of here. Chris will bounce back.

  43. sugar February 27, 2010

    in fact chris has already started to BOUNCE BACK.

  44. X,Y,”and Z” February 27, 2010

    @”Reasonable Voice” – You see, at-one-time, I’d have had to agree with you; regarding “Chris Brown’s career being bruised”; but alas comes the likes of Mary J. “stronger-with-every-punch” Blige and Charlie “hold-a-knife-to-a-b****” Sheen and the reality of the “human-consciousness” comes-to-me: PEOPLE FORGET; what’s-old, get’s ‘pushed-back’ by what’s-new and that, that is NOW-old, “isn’t/wasn’t so bad” – as compared to – what is NOW-new!

    …I get you’d have said the same regarding MJ during HIS difficulties. I’d bet you’d have NEVER thought someone, who sold drugs to pregnant woman and grade-school kids – and who – is seen assaulting young black girls – on tape – would every marry the likes of Beyonce!

    So NO, CBreezy isn’t any-at-all “bruised” by Feb 8th; was Rihanna “bruised” after she, as we all NOW realize, “busted bottles” upside HER brother’s head?

    @TLJ — I’ll never lie – NEVER! Everything I’ve written is/was already “out there” in the public domain! NO need to lie; I know this stuff ‘reads bizarre’, but truth-IS-stranger-than- fiction!!
    @Sugar — At one time I’d have ‘entertained-such’ : Them getting BACK together; but NOW?? HELL TO-THE-F*** NO! Rihanna is a empty, vicious, conniving, unreasonable malcontent, who was/is “recently-estranged from the badlands”, and whose “agenda” I NOW bring to your attention; thus said, do with it, as you see fit!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!!

  45. Reasonable Voice February 27, 2010

    “You sure do have the tea on the situation! I kind of knew that she instigated that incident. She even admitted that she had a violent past w/ her brother and etc.”

    @tjd

    Oh really, what incident would that be? saying she instigated the incident is victim blaming, dumbass, even if you did try to excuse that remark with that “i’m in no way saying she deserved to be beat down” tripe.

  46. TJD February 27, 2010

    @ unreasonable voice, I see I made you mad. Name calling and everything..I guess you told me huh? And I guess I’m very important to you since you quoted a comment that wasnt directed towards you. You can take what I said how ever you like. I really don’t care. I stick by what I said and if you don’t like it..oh well. Get over it. Its really not that serious. But anyway, you are now on ignore mode. I really don’t like to converse with children.

  47. X,Y,”and Z” February 27, 2010

    @Reasonable Voice – Those who had access to her REAL STATEMENT, TMZ, said as much!! Why don’t YOU want-to-realize the truth? I’ve NEVER had to lie; NEVER – you hear me? …And if ever, I feel the need to lie – you can bet the truth will be also told!

    Rihanna during that 20/20 interview: “NO, I didn’t hit him, even IF I DID, he shouldn’t have done what HE DID!” It was TMZ who quoted the LAPD investigators when it seemed that CBrown was going to “take it to trial” and she’d have HAD to testify!
    @Reasonable Voice – Why did CoverGirl drop her commercials just before she was to testify?
    When it seemed that the ‘happenings of that Feb 8th 09 evening’ were, as-told/as-said in THAT Cell Phone Warrant, it was ‘all-good’ and her commercials ran and she was the “darling of the press”: “wronged and mistreated” by that dastardly Chris Brown

    But, as it seemed, it WAS going to trial, and she’d HAVE to take the stand and she’d THEN have to, again, re-tell the events, second-by-second;minute-after-minute as written in her statement – the one she told the LAPD investigators – the one SHE signed! …That ‘one-realization’ put-such-a-fright into CoverGirl, that they decided to discontinue her commercials; they ONLY began running ’em AFTER he copped to the charge!

    We can ONLY now come to the conclusion that, at the very least, her statement, the one she signed, is NOT “consistent-with” the telling of the events as told by that Cell Phone Warrant! …Rihanna IS a liar, an opportunist and a unhappy-lost-soul who brings “pain and despair” to any-and-all who have the misfortune to make her acquaintance! …Matt Kemp will SOON realize this, his “baptism-by-fire” was but-a-taste of what IS to come; “heed-the- warnings” he didn’t, so let HIM become a statistic!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  48. Reasonable Voice February 27, 2010

    @tjd

    Oh sorry, sweetie, did I catch you with your foot in your mouth? last I checked I could respond to anyone on this board that I wanted to, regardless of whether or not the comment was directed towards me. So, why don’t you try harder. It doesn’t matter what you meant, insinuating that Rihanna instigated the “incident” is in fact victim blaming.

  49. TJD February 27, 2010

    @ x,y,z Iike I said before..chick has a good PR team. And plus she has Jay-z…Everything about that situation is so shady! But what still trips me out is how TMZ got her “battered” shots but no one could get a hold of Chris Browns mug shots…which is so much easier to get. things that make you go “hmmm”

  50. sugar February 27, 2010

    @ X Y & Z

    Matt Kemp will SOON realize this, his “baptism-by-fire” was but-a-taste of what IS to come; “heed-the- warnings” he didn’t, so let HIM become a statistic!

    hahahaha that was FUNNY

  51. sugar February 27, 2010

    @ X Y & Z

    Matt Kemp will SOON realize this, his “baptism-by-fire” was but-a-taste of what IS to come; “heed-the- warnings” he didn’t, so let HIM become a statistic!

    hahahaha that was FUNNY, very funny, but your forgetting that Matt wants to be famous like Regie Bush LMAO

  52. X,Y,”and Z” February 27, 2010

    @Sugar — You know, that seems to be a “trend” in Hollywood, at the moment! But I can “understand” someone like Lamar Odom: he’s not entirely, as-marketable-as, Reggie Bush , matter-of-a-fact, he is “downright frightful”, if you ask me. Oh, btw, Reggie Bush, in his first year, made some $20 million! I just read THAT over-on Forbes!

    But Matt Kemp will become a star, in HIS OWN RIGHT, why does he feel the need to associate with Rihanna? I just DON’T ‘get-it’, her “star” is NOW-FADING: there is NO-undoing “he darkness” that she’s NOW submersed-herself-in.
    …NO amount of ‘PR-repackaging and/or marketing/re-marketing’ will “undo” what HAS been done! Rihanna ‘went-nuclear’ during that 20/20 interview; and it’s NOW-seared, into our collective-consciousness; she’s finished!

    …And I’ll tell y’all what else: That statement she made, the ONE she SIGNED, it’ll eventually ‘come-out’, you can ‘make-book-on-that!’ It’ll be THEN, that the world will finally, read, and see – for themselves, just what an opportunist Ms. Fenty is, and thus how “undeserving” she really is!!

    @TJD — Tell me this (to continue on the theme of “Jay Z and your suspicions of/on him”): When is the last time you read ANYTHING negative ‘ bout he OR Beyonce, over on TMZ?
    I have the sneaking-suspicion that Jay Z is ‘in-bed’ with TMZ – FOR REAL!
    Even NOW, there’s a story ’bout Jay Z having a “Blacks-only party” in London, TMZ didn’t carry it! He’s now embroiled-in some sort of ‘political-payoff scandal’ that the Federal Gov’t is investigating – no word on THAT, over on TMZ; He was recently sued, and thus counter- sued, regarding foreclosure on a hotel- he had some ownership of – in Mid-town Manhattan: not a PEEP, out-of TMZ! Usually, they’d “rake-over-the-coals” any other celebrity, but NOT Jay Z!!

    …The-plot-thickens….

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!!

  53. TJD February 27, 2010

    You are right. Jay-z has a lot of influence. I wouldn’t be surprised if he controlled what stories about him and beyonce that hit the media. He doesn’t try to hard with Beyonce though…stuff always get out about her ( stealing music and etc). Very shady indeed. I never heard about that Law suit either! Just goes to show, there aren’t really any reputable media sources anymore….they are getting paid off to keep their mouths shut!

    @ XYZ

    …And I’ll tell y’all what else: That statement she made, the ONE she SIGNED, it’ll eventually ‘come-out’, you can ‘make-book-on-that!’ It’ll be THEN, that the world will finally, read, and see – for themselves, just what an opportunist Ms. Fenty is, and thus how “undeserving” she really is!!

    I CANT WAIT FOR THAT TO HAPPEN. btw its good we get people like you informing us about our Chris instead of these people from the media who like to lie about him. Good job XYZ.

    Girl show them how to do an interview. What struck me this time as before is how welleducated this articulate young lady is in comparision to other stars of her ilk (go look it up)

    In this interview alone the following vocabulary:
    aggressive
    vulnerable
    surreal
    calibre
    authentic
    collaborators
    intimidated
    pedestal
    accessible

    NONE of your “yuh know what I’m sayin” “yuh get wehama comin from” “like, you know” “aarrrrm, ehmmms” “kinda like”
    Makes her so much more pleasant to listen to and shows you she didn’t waste her time in school!

    Kick *ss Rih

    @ rihfan…she didn’t even get her high school diploma. She said she hated school. Just because you are good with your words doesn’t necessarily mean that you are educated. Just means that she either has common sense or some good media training..or both.

  57. Ugh! February 27, 2010

    @ Rihfan: You know she never even finished HS don’t you? You do know people can be coached for interviews right? Just because you can use big fancy words in an interview (that was obvioulsy for promotion due to the big pic of her album cover in the background) doesn’t mean she is intlelligent! She may be able to speak eloquently in an interview, doens’t mean she has book sense! I wonder if she can even solve a math problem.

    I have also read many interviews where she has dropped the eff bomb! Does using those words make her articulate as well! *rolls eyes*

    @Rihfan — Later for the BS!! …I liked HER-better when she wasn’t “putting-on-airs”, as she is obviously doing for THIS interview. I liked it better when SHE gave-us those “Keen-Rihanna-Insights”: ‘I like great s** for the holidays’ ; ‘I don’t like soft guys, I think they’re corny!” … And MY-FAVORITE “Rihanna-ism”: “I-like-big-d****!” …The-one, the-ONLY Robyn Rihanna Fenty ladies and gentlemen; Rihanna, take a bow!

    Rihfan — “Didn’t waste time in school?!?!?” …You wanna come-again? …In a “Bordello-reality”, I’d, totally, have to agree: I mean, one can learn so-much-more ’bout the “human-condition” from some good-old-fashioned pillow-talk, no? And as we’ve ALL-SEEN, our little Bajan-Princess done made extensive-use of that there “language-of-the-world,” even the likes of Mata Hari would be left blushing!

    I happened to say “did not waste her time at school”

    It’s whether u seek to continue learning before, during or after school that counts.
    What she has done – shows

    Bill Gates dropped out of college – nuff said

  60. Rihfan February 27, 2010

    Sorry – one more thing

    She is an articulate woman – not an articulate nun!!

    PEACE

    @Rihfan — Right you are! I’m glad YOU cleared THAT up! But the question STILL stands: “Would YOU want Rihanna to be ‘mentor’, ‘counselor’ or “placed-in-charge” of YOUR daughter, little-sister or said ‘easily-influenced young-mind’? ….Her H***** sore…er…I meant SCAR – WITHSTANDING!!

    …And what a fine-message to be sending to OUR young women: “Drop out of school”; “Suck -and-f*** to get a record deal”; “Throw tantrums and fits-of-rage when YOU DON’T get your way”; “Start fights”, and when YOU get your a** handed to you – you ‘shed-crocodile-tears’ – ALL -said-and-done, in the hope of YOU selling your CD!

    …Hell, why stop there? Why not, send said message, to all young-impressionable island girls: “Drop out of school; suck and f*** tourists – in the hope of getting off your island – never-mind any STDs you may encounter, ‘passing-it-on’ – “to the next one” – is best cure!
    …Michelle Obama you say? …Shhhyeeeeiiiiiitttttt (in my BEST Senator Clay Davis), perish-the-thought: “Give ’em Rihanna, I say!!”

    Yeah Bill Gates dropped out of college but he is also a billionaire. He built an empire. Are you seriously comparing Rihanna to Bill Gates? Lol you must be sleepy.

    @Trent — Sorry bout the multi-post, I didn’t see what I had written-to-post, and had hit resend.

    @Rihfan — Dropping out of High School is NOT the same as dropping out of HARVARD!! …That’s HARVARD; second-only to OXFORD – as the world’s-premier learning institution — NOW DO YOU GET IT?? Oh, and I-do-believe Harvard gave Mr. Gates an Honorary-degree!

    …But, not-to-worry, Rihanna will soon-get a ‘most-stern’ lesson on the realities of the “fickle-nature” of the mainstream, and their “disposable-funds spending habits”: Rated-R’s sales figures was BUT a ‘harbinger of things-to-come!!!’
