Rihanna: “Matt Kemp Is My Boyfriend”

Published: Thursday 8th Apr 2010 by Sam

After months of dodging questions surrounding her love life, Rihanna has finally revealed that Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp is indeed her new ‘boyfriend’.

Speaking on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today, the Bajan model said of Kemp (when questioned about how she’d categorise her relationship with him)…

“Erm…he’s my boyfriend (laughs). It’s new and it’s fun. It’s nothing too serious. I don’t want anything that is going to take up too much of my time in a bad way, you know. I just wanna have fun…and that what it’s about”. {Source}

And there you have it. Perhaps we’ll stop hearing about Chris Brown from Ms. Fenty moving forward. Just thinking out aloud…

Your thoughts?

  10. Puppy Love April 8, 2010

    I like Rihanna, but that Matt character doesn’t sit right with me. Take the first set of pics that flooded the web a couple months back. This negro was looking into the camera grabbing her damn ass, like “Yeah, get this shot right here!”. And what sadden me the most was that, Rihanna didn’t seem to mind. I know if my man did some s*** like that to me in public, baby…It would rocking and rolling time in Texas! I want her to be happy, but something about these to screams fake to me.

    But who am I to try and call it? As long as shes happy I’m happy!

  15. djy2kmalone April 8, 2010

    he must have a big d***

  16. Symone April 8, 2010

    Rihanna is just stating that Matt is her boyfriend because of the fallout that’s coming at her because of Nicki Minaj being thrown off the tour by her.This was reported months ago so why does she feel the need to speak on an issue that don’t concern any of us.

    I just really think the no singing bird craves attention….

  17. parisian girl April 8, 2010

    some of you are so mean,how can u wish someone to be r****?
    SMH…

  18. Aunt Jackie April 8, 2010

    This matters……..why? Her personal life and relationships are not important. I’m so tired of blogs posting this crap. I come to blogs to read music information/news and see performances.

    I comment on this so maybe they’ll read it and STOP posting on her personal life. It’s annoying, and stupid. Especially when they make 5948940289043 posts on her a day. It’s weird.

  19. Its Me Again April 8, 2010

    I love TGJ, don’t think I’m being shady…

    But there are more blogworthy things to be posting about than this. Rihanna being a performing con-artist is such a thing. But her personal life… I for one, couldn’t care less about.
    It would be nice if you’d stop being so blatant in your gratuitous use of Rihanna posts to get clicks and comments, it diminishes the actual substantive things you report and say about her which exposes her for the talent-lacking sham of an entertainer she is.

    Just sayin’..

  20. Rob April 8, 2010

    Why do you guys constantly post on Rihanna if you hate her…………………………………………….
    ………………………………………………………………………………………..
    Oh I know why because she’s a BAD B**** – thats why ….and she keeps this site running!

  21. ~Team Weezy~ April 8, 2010

    Awww. I think that’s cute. We already knew, but I find it cute when they actually come out and confirm it themselves. And I think Matt is a SUPER HOTTIE and they look really good together.

    And how could people come here and wish someone gets beat or r****. That is truly sad and disgusting! You people are sick! Ugh! I’m not a Rihanna fan but damn! Smh.

    Anyways, good luck to them on their relationship.

  22. Cocoa lux April 8, 2010

    And this was news worthy because… She was asked so she answered!
    She definitely has you guys pressed. I personally think she did something to Sam/Trent. Did she insult ur island or what cos this is unnatural and weird.

    And just smh at some people’s request of a fellow human being To be r**** or beaten . That’s beyond hating to straight up disgusting malicious hatred. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. Lord have mercy!

  23. SPRING April 8, 2010

    @aunt jackie THANK YOU…
    exactly what i was gonna say
    and here it goes

    WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    next plssssssssssssss

  24. DANBOFFICIAL April 8, 2010

    OMG ANOTHER RIHANNA POST !!!! for a site that hates, you post her way too much…smh

    get a life grapejuice

  25. RATED x April 8, 2010

    she f****** matt kempt no s*** sherlock..they’re both using each other for publicity. rihanna knows his past, u dont think she reads the blogs like we do, please…

    thats what i said when i first saw them vacationing together. now she can move the fugg on. and get off chris browns nuts.

    as much as rihanna’s voice irks me to death, i still dont wish death on her. u guys are being cruel with that s***. its one thing to constantly criticize her lack of talent, but wishing chris brown beat her to death, thats over the top..

  26. RATED_EFFING_R April 8, 2010

    SAM you are f****** ridiculous! I think you crossed the line with that last sentence! Like he beat the s*** outta her and she NEVER brings him in interviews unless she is asked! LIKE WHERE IS YOUR BOSS?!?!??!?!!?!

    and I agree with the majority of people who commented that for someone who thinks she is a talentless hack THERE IS A POST ABOUT RIHANNA EVERYDAY!

    I’m 100 % positive she is the most posted celeb on your site!

    Grow some balls and black list her from your site since you hate her so much!

    You are really turning into mediatakeout.com with your Rihanna bashing! its getting old and I’m OVER IT! but sadly I think you enjoy people cursing you out!

    And I didn’t won’t to go here but I think you hate her because she dated Chris Brown and you can’t! You probably would let him beat the s*** outta you on a daily basis!

    Now that’s why this Rihanna reign just won’t let up h**!

  27. newsflash haters April 8, 2010

    Good for rihanna. I hope she finds happiness in her new relationship.

  28. DANBOFFICIAL April 8, 2010

    chris brown has not sold 600,000

    hes close to 400,000 worldwide

  32. DANBOFFICIAL April 8, 2010

    its called exaggeration nicky *rolls eyes*

  33. X,Y,”and Z” April 8, 2010

    So NOW, can we really-NOT hear bout Chris, in ANY of her upcoming interviews? I mean, you’re telling me, that Rihanna, or her team, doesn’t have “full-control” of what is asked, and more-importantly, what is answered during HER interviews?

    Maybe Mr. Secrest should have asked ’bout those persistent, and all-too-obvious “H*****-rumors” and that ….”SCAR” on HER Top Lip!
    Maybe Mr. Secrest should have ask HER if they’re any-other Personal Trainers in Hollywood, whose NOW, willing to take-her-on, as-a-client?

    Maybe, Mr. Secrest, should-have-asked, if SHE is writing a book, or is willing to take GED classes?
    And finally, how does the back of Nicki Minaj’s hand taste, when it swept across Rihanna’s face when she went on Twitter and gave Rihanna a “Pimp Slap”, that “ICEBERG SLIM” himself would be envious of?

    “…..Inquiring Minds want to know!!”

  34. Fatima April 8, 2010

    Sam’s obsession with Rihanna is exhausting. Nothing’s not worth posting? The obsession is pathetic.

  35. geronimo April 8, 2010

    Chris Brown has really been churning out new music since he drop his latest album “Grafitti” The latest track comes from an upcoming mixtape from both Chris and Tyga called “Fan of a Fan”. Judging from this song, the mixtape will be fire. –

    ITS FIRE GUYS

    check it out its HAWT – go chris go

  36. Symone April 8, 2010

    Ah the irony of a Rihanna Stan talking about people”exaggerating”…..LMAO

    Why would a Rihanna Stan care about the sales of Chris Brown? Chris Brown has sold over 800,000 (physical cd’s) WORLDWIDE and that was as of FEB!………………. Now for those that don’t know Physical cd’s are the cd’s you buy in a store.The digital scans WORLDWIDE isn’t counted in the equasion…..

  37. X,Y,”and Z” April 8, 2010

    @Geronimo — I check that song out, it was pretty good!
    @Symone — “ON-the-real,” I’m STILL waiting for the link to the RIAA site that states that THEY ONLY, count sales of CDs that cost OVER $5.00, as “Nicky”, “Youputthelimeinthecoconut”,”Raychel”,”Gucci” as the rest of “Camp-Rihanna” claims!
    I’m still waiting for “any info” on that STILL-pending $30K lawsuit for THEFT OF SERVICES, by “Empire-builder:Rihanna Fenty”!!
    I’m still waiting, and hoping, to understand, how-is-it, that you supposedly bought a $10 million home, but YET can’t come-up with $30K?
    I can “go-on-and-on”: ad-nausea; but why bother? If there’s ONE-THING I’ve noticed, since blogging ‘since”Feb 8th/09′, it’s that “Camp-Rihanna” is VERY-good at NOT answering questions, deflecting and THEN scapegoating!

    But like I’ve said, I don’t lie – ain’t NEVER had to, especially ’bout this entire “Feb 8th/09 Chrianna mess”!!
    And to close, as I’ll, yet-again, say: “This summer will be a game-breaker/maker for Rihanna, Trey Songz and the ‘several-others’ who are planning “BIG-CAREER-MOVES” this summer! All-the-chips, have been “put on the table”, and thus – at risk! If there is just ONE FAILURE, then it’s “curtains!”
    And I ESPECIALLY can’t wait to hear how the mainstream will “SPIN” the, upcoming and revealing, Charlie Sheen trail. Charlie is gonna hand Chris a pass; I know it sounds kinda nuts, but if you gave Charlie Sheen a pass for HIS HISTORY of SERIOUS TRANSGRESSIONS, how, do-you-NOT, with Chris?

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  38. Symone April 8, 2010

    LOL @ X,Y and Z…..Well you and I both know that all of Chris cd’s will count because he had no sale………………Truth be told Rihanna was predicted to sale 1,000,000 weeks before her cd was released but The immediate Monday before her cd was release,it went on SALE first on Amazon! The cd was selling for 7.00 on Tuesday and then by Wednesday it was on SALE FOR 99 CENTS!

    Camp Rihanna is lying big time about them not counting cd’s that sold for under 5 dollars so there will be NO link! That’s just another lie they made up.The industry gave Rihanna every chance it could .The media also overlook her abusive past toward her brother as well because if WE know they KNOW what she did to her brother ! The media did this not report it because they care about the trollup .They PRETEND to support her only because she is the PAWN THEY use to try and bring down Chris Brown !

    The media and White society in general want to emasculate The Black man.Chris apologized a few times and he stopped.Now lets look at Tiger Woods,he is a billionaire with a slave mentality. He protects his WHITE ABUSIVE wife and he takes the hits(literally and figuratively) to shield her her from THE BIG BAD BLACK MAN IN WHITE SOCIETY EYES AND HE GROBBLES to White Society and he looks WEAK!Chris makes them mad because he isn’t grobbling for their forgiveness although I feel he should have told the entire story when he initially had a chance because of the way The White Media was treating him…..

  39. DIVAZZ April 8, 2010

    @STONEY BRIE IF YOU DIDN’T CARE OBVIOUSLY YOU WOULD’VE SKIPPED IT NOT TAKE THE TIME TO COMMENT ON IT.AND YALL WISHING BAD ON SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOUR PERSONALITIES.IF YOU DIDN’T CARE THEN WHY THE F*** DID YOU TAKE THE TIME TO COMMENT ABOUT IT.HOW COULD YOU WISH THAT ON RIRI SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO YOU.IT’S ALL JUST PETTY JEALOUSLY BECAUSE RIHANNA IS ON TOP OF HER GAME AND IS SMASHING THE INDUSTRY WITH HER SONG “RUDE BOY”.WHICH IS TURNING OUT TO BE A BETTER SONG THAN THE ICONIC “UMBRELLA”.STOP ALL THIS HATERATION AND LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELVES PLEASE!! BEING OBSESSED AND ENVIOUS OF RIHANNA IS NOT GOING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE SUCK!! ANY LESS.ALL THIS PETTY FOOLISHNESS JUST SHOWS HOW LOW YOU ALL ARE.PEACE B****** DAMN LOSERS!!!!!!!!!! LOL SAY JEALOUS THAT “RUDE BOY” IS # 1 FOR THE 4TH WEEK.

  40. DANBOFFICIAL April 8, 2010

    seriously how many Rihanna posts have their been this week ? im a stan but wow………..
    would this site have anything to post at all if Rihanna wasnt filling up the site ? everything she does is documented on this site, fancy changing the name to RihannasDiary.net…
    Rihanna has a s*** and it’s posted on here…….dayummmmmmmmmm

  41. X,Y,”and Z” April 8, 2010

    @Symone — ‘Bout Tiger Woods: Did you see the new commercial that Nike has NOW released? They’re using HIS-father’s voice; you know, the-said-father, that HE dissed on Oprah’s show? …That was ‘well-before’: you-get-a-car; you-get-a-car; and you too, get-a- car!

    But check-out how the “The Karma”, just sometimes, ‘boomerang’s-around’ and “comes-back-at-you”: Kanye West, you ain’t heard nothing ’bout ‘Ol Kanye much-after that “George Clooney-SMACKDOWN”, now have you? …Busy getting his new CD ready they say. K, that might be the case, but will that “Taylor Swift mess” effect his CD sales? ….Things that make you go Hmm….??

    If Kanye’s sales “takes a hit”, you can best-believe that the lynch-mob that went after Chris, is NOW going after Kanye; having Amber “on HIS-arm”, doesn’t help his-case, either!

    ..So “THE BEAST”, that Rihanna, Perez Hilton,TMZ – AND YES – Jay Z, unleashed-upon-Chris is NOW “out-of-control and in-FULL-effect”; and is NOW ravenous and looking for the next black man: Kanye West – friend of/to Rihanna and Jay Z – “is next”!!!

    Don’t think, for a second, that TMZ/Perez Hilton “will-sit-for” having “a” Charlie Sheen getting “revealed”, and NOT deflecting/scapegoating by NOT having a black face as target!
    …So, if this summer goes, as I THINK it will, Kanye’s next-effort (CD), will NOT have the audience, he-once-did. But he can THEN have his “friends”: Jay Z and Rihanna to thank!

    I’m telling y’all: ‘THIS-summer?!?!’ …It’ll be like NONE-OTHER-BEFORE…..!!!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!!

  42. Selly April 8, 2010

    So nobody can talk bad abt Billy Goat right??? I tell u, these Rihanna stans are delusional… real talk….

    Anyway if Graffiti was such a FLOP why was it sampled 400 MILLION TIMES HO @Nicky + ur other personalities on here??? smh…

    Why bring up Chris Brown’s name??? Like I will always say, u stans are the FIRST to bring up other artists! Beyonce, Chris Brown etc… dissing them…always..

    And to even compare her to Beyonce is extremely insulting …that just goes to show how seriously deluded u stans are…

    Say what u want abt Chris Brown… yes right now is not the best time for him..but he is NOT going to be down forever….and also say what u want, but aleast he has TALENT and can perform…. billy goat is aight looking and has a good team… and thats abt it!

    That.Is.All

  43. RATED x April 8, 2010

    @Symone
    cosign 100%.
    when u look at her, u be shaking ur head,” how the fugg this girl got a record deal”?..
    while half of these people on American Idol, got eliminated can sing circles around her.

    we all realistic, meaning we can see b******* a mile away. the girl sold 181k on her first week, went down 70% on the second week, suddendly she went on 50 60 % on the third week..i called b*******. i dont even think she sold 1.8, or 1.9 albums. her record company most likely bought half of that s*** to save face.

    everytime i think ok rihanna has improve a little, than she goes on american idol and prove me wrong, this girl has zero personality live, u see half of the stans comment on her outfits than her perfomance.

  44. cold case love April 8, 2010

    Rihanna’s “Rated R” has been remarkably stable. The week “Rude” went from #4 to #1 the able increased 21% in sales jumping from 35-18 on the Billboard 200. The album has never left the top 40 and is increasing each week. The album shall surpass the one million mark the last week of May, before “The Last Girl on Earth” tour featuring pop phenom Ke$ha kicks off. –Nielsen Soundscan.

  45. RATED x April 8, 2010

    and the stans on a gaga post talking bout hows shes a gimmick..man please.
    at least if ur ass gonna be a gimmick, come hard, shut all these haters down.
    learn how to sing or dance or something. give something somebody can actually hate on.
    yall stans cant say we’re hating on her looks, shes not the only pretty chick with a body like that on this planet. its not that hard to get rihannas body.her looks is the only thing she got going for her.
    what the hell are we hating on?

    4 albums, still havent shut the so call haters down. 4 albums, still cant move 400k units on ur first week. how u gonna let a white lady nobody heard of sell twice as much as u in less than 3 weeks. and ur asking where them bloggers at…

  46. cold case love April 8, 2010

    Chris Brown has not sold 800,000, he’s stuck under 300,000 worldwide. He flopped his career is over.

    “Rude Boy” remains #1 worldwide with a 5% gain selling 359,000 copies last week, so expect a post about that soon. Rihanna’s concert in Madison Square Garden is ALMOST sold out with less than 300 tickets remaining based off Presales!!!!!!. YESSSSSSSSS.

    @Reasonable Voice — That link, I can’t open it! And can you PLEASE find one, as I had ask, from RIAA as THAT is were “Camp-Rihanna” had initially refereed ME? And I noticed, that is for neilsen for Canada, not the U.S. Here is what I found on RIAA’s site:

    >>We are often asked why we don’t just use sales figures from SoundScan. SoundScan measures over-the-counter sales at music retail locations, while the RIAA®’s certification levels are based on unit shipments (minus returns) from manufacturers to a wide range of accounts, including non-retail record clubs, mail order houses, specialty stores, units shipped for Internet fulfillment or direct marketing sales, such as TV-advertised albums. The other difference is that SoundScan’s archive is only a few years old, while the RIAA® has tracked artists’ sales levels for more than 40 years.
    Here’s the actual link:
    http://riaa.com/goldandplatinum.php?content_selector=certification

    I’m actually NOW trying to see where, on the RIAA site, THEY state that CDs (Digitally or Over The Counter) sold for less-than $5 won’t be counted towards total sales! Here’s the closest link to said info: http://riaa.com/goldandplatinum.php?content_selector=criteria

    …But this argument is academic, no? I mean, the question STILL stands:”WHO, in their “right-mind(s)”, discounts a “moving-product”??? If anything, if demand is high, you RAISE the price, NOT-lower-it!!

    …And-so ….THIS-SUMMER starts with-a-bang: “the-Nicki-Minaj-decision”; and-what-more surprises, does-IT-hold, for us……………?????

    @rated x Why does it matter what u sell in your first week? Since we talking about 1st week sales “The Fame” sold 26K the first week debuting at #17 and look where its at now.

    Gaga is a gimmick, simply because she came out singing indie-rock, was brunette, herself. She changed her style, music, dyed her hair blonde to appeal to white people, wears over the top outfits for attention,etc. That’s why she is a GIMMICK.

    RIHANNA however is not a gimmick. She has a 3.1 octave vocal range and she had no prior singing lessons before the age of 17. Gaga’s range is not close, and her range and talent is very limited. Rihanna can do rock, pop, dubstep, reggae, dancehall, R&B, etc. Gaga is doing the same s*** over and over. SHE/HE IS A GIMMICK.

    @Sam/Trent — I just went to the RIAA site and pulled up info, I really want to find out IF it’s true that they DON’T count CD’s NOT sold, for more than $5.00, as “Camp-Rihanna” claims. I had JUST made a post with links I found on RIAA’s site, and they addressed why they don’t suggest, NOR refer to Neilsen Soundscan, can you PLEASE post the link I just made before this one?

  52. Lalailadida April 8, 2010

    WOW! Could Sam and Trent be over their beef with Riri? I’m surprised they didn’t sneak in some sly back handed comment to make it seem like Rihanna is a s***. LOL.

    #Cold Case Love — Can you PLEASE post the link from/on RIAA’s site where they said that they’re NOT counting CD sales, “Digital, or Over The Counter (OTC)”, that were sold for LESS-THAN $5.00? I’d really like to see that!

    @ Cold Case Love
    I would argue that Rihanna has a unique tone and voice. They fix it up in the studio and it resonates with people because they hear and say ‘That’s RIhanna’!

    As for your arguments about octave. Having a certain ‘octave’ doesn’t mean you can sing. Period. If your voice cracks and you can’t sing on key (also known as tone-deaf!) you cannot sing. No matter how you you spin it. The girl cannot sing. She always sounds off, fragile, and her background singers sound better (on key, stronger) than her.

    You can barely hear the girl over here band. It’s not a matter of opinion. It is reality that she can’t hold a note. Any note. Ever. Without cracking or being significantly off.

    Her tone is rare, and that yodel sound is unique. I <3 it in the studio.

    @Reasonable Voice — This is what RIAA had to say ’bout neilsen souncscan, and it’s the closest bit of info I could find on the counting of units sold for less-than $5.00 counting towards that first-weeks-sales:

    –>>We are often asked why we don’t just use sales figures from SoundScan. SoundScan measures over-the-counter sales at music retail locations, while the RIAA®’s certification levels are based on unit shipments (minus returns) from manufacturers to a wide range of accounts, including non-retail record clubs, mail order houses, specialty stores, units shipped for Internet fulfillment or direct marketing sales, such as TV-advertised albums. The other difference is that SoundScan’s archive is only a few years old, while the RIAA® has tracked artists’ sales levels for more than 40 years.

  56. X,Y,”and Z” April 8, 2010

    …And Jay Z was WRONG: NUMBERS MIGHT NOT LIE; but they can SURELY “be-bent”, and-made-into, whatever you-so-choose, or are felling, at-the-moment!

  57. cold case love April 8, 2010

    @aunt jackie Do you realize what an idiot you sound like? “She has this octave, but she can’t sing”. What part of YOUR Opinion don’t u understand? Since when can studios mimmick vocal notes on songs like Stupid in Love, Russian Roulette, and Fire Bomb. Its impossible. Its HER singing. Whether you want to accept that she CAN sing and has proven she can sing numerous times, and critics will agree is up to you.

    @xyz Dude im mobile. I can’t post a link from my sidekick. The price was any album sold for less than $6.99 is not counted by Soundscan. Im sure your psycho ass will be here tomorow typing up long ass essays about irrelevant s*** so I’ll have the link for u then.

  58. Reasonable Voice April 8, 2010

    @x y and z

    That may very well be, but If you’re going to try to invalidate Soundscan, then you’re nullifying Billboard, because Billboard uses Soundscan. As I recall, you’ve been known to cite CB’s Graffiti single positions on Billboard’s R &B/hip-hop charts. Sam and Trent would be hard pressed to try to discredit Soundscan as well because they refer to Billboard when citing artist’s chart positions damn near every day.

    So, according to Billboard vis a vis Nielson Soundscan, none of those Amazon discount cd’s were counted in her tally, which means that Rihanna sold almost 10K cd’s off of Amazon that weren’t even reported by Bilboard, HDD, mediatraffic, and anyone else that uses Nielson, unless they were sold for over half the standard market rate. The idea is that you can’t use price gouging to pad sales and boost chart position, which is why Nielson doesn’t count albums sold for less than half of the market standard list price. That list price being over $10 USD, which explains why $5.00 cd would be disqualified.

    And either way you look at it, those albums sold during the amazon promo were neither here nor there because fewer than 10K were sold during that promotion and wouldn’t have made a difference in Rated R’s chart position. It wasn’t 10K albums that separted Rated R from the album in the #3 spot, and it wasn’t 10K albums that separated Rated R from whatever album charted higher the following week.

But nope, they won’t grab the headlines like a Rihanna post so it can bring out the worst in people.

    @Reasonable Voice — But it was YOU, and those of Camp-Rihanna, “who-made-hay” regarding her first-weeks sales and DID quote RIAA NOT counting “under-$5.00-CD-sales”!
    …So please, I’m NOT trying to do ANYTHING, I’m just “following-up” the lead YOU put-out-there! …If you didn’t say anything, I’d have not gone and investigated it. That said, you’re doing Rihanna a terrible disservice, as you put stuff out, but yet become belligerent when it’s investigated, and is THEN questioned!

    …I don’t know if ONLY 10K were sold during THAT week, that’s NOT my point, it’s just the logic and reasoning BEHIND IT; to which I stated, or more to the point, questioned: “How can you discount a product that is in HIGH DEMAND?” <<–That was MY question!!

    You and I use the term "Price Gouging" in totally different manners/ways, when you "price gouge" you 'mark-up' the price of a good, or service, that IS NEEDED; say during a natural disaster, you CAN'T-JUST "ramp-up" the price of gas/water/ice or "any-other such Commodity/Good(s)" that's NEEDED for survival! <<–K, so that's me, going-off on a tangent, but the fact remains, you DON'T discount a "moving product"!

    And, as far as, me quoting from Billboard: Chris' chart position, it was Y'ALL who decried his EVERY EFFORT(S), and it was 'Camp-Rihanna' who ridiculed, mocked and belittled "Graffiti", in an effort to deflect from "Rated R's" less-than-stellar sales.

  67. X,Y,”and Z” April 9, 2010

    @Cold Case Love — You’re NOT-exactly telling the truth, now are you? What YOU should say is: “I won’t read essays, written by those I disagree with!” I mean, for YOU, as a “Camp-Rihanna charter-member” – in ‘good-standing’, to say that you don’t “READ ESSAYS” and, from her very-own admission, that SHE is a High School Drop-Out; isn’t a very-good look, you know?

    ..And if you DON’T “read Essays”, how are you going to read Rihanna’s Book? <<—"Camp-Rihanna", ladies and gentlement of TGJ; …."TAKE A BOW", Team-RiRi!!!!

  68. MOJO April 9, 2010

    Man if RiRi wanted a man who looks like that, she should get with Johnta Austin…good man with more money and her music for sure would get better.

  69. Reasonable Voice April 9, 2010

    @xy and z
    Ok, how am I being belligerent? Am I cursing you out? Was I rude in my last response to you? Symone said, “Camp Rihanna is lying big time about them not counting cd’s that sold for under 5 dollars so there will be NO link! That’s just another lie they made up.”

    So I posted a link.

    Neither I nor Symone said anything about RIAA. It was YOU who brought up RIAA. When this issue regarding Rihanna’s Amazon promo has been brought up in the past, someone usually alludes to how Nielson Soundscan doesn’t count cd’s sold at a certain price, not RIAA.

    Look, your argument has already been undercut. Unless those Amazon cd’s were sold at a certain price, then they weren’t counted in her official total. So why not start entertaining other theories for why Def Jam allowed Amazon and Amazon only to run that promo. Usually when one retail outlet runs an exclusive deal with another company, there’s some type of pay-out involved. Ever consider that?

    You can’t use Soundscan when it’s convenient and then turn around and try to discredit it when it’s not. Everyone uses Billboard as the industry chart standard in the US and Billboard uses Soundscan, regardless of how much longer RIAA has been around or whether or not RIAA counts sales differently than Nielson.

    When I think of gouge, I think of hollowing out or cutting into, like gouging someone’s eyes out but you’re right, I am misusing the term. So, I’ll use another term instead of “price gouge,” I’ll use “dumping.” The Nielson soundscan rule for not counting heavily discounted albums is to encourage competition, prevent the padding of sales, and boosting of chart position by dumping cheap cd’s onto the market.

  70. Aunt Jackie April 9, 2010

    @ Cold Case Love

    I can’t argue with you because you don’t make any sense. I already explained how you can easily have a unique tone and not be able to hold a note. EVERYONE has a certain octave. It doesn’t mean they can sing without having their voice crack.

    Like I said, I love it in the studio, but she sounds horrid live. That’s not an opinion. If the voice cracks, it cracks. THOSE are the kind of statements that make you a CRAZY STAN and nothing else. Saying she sounds great, when she doesn’t. Love her voice in the studio, the tone is great, but she is studio singer and has ABSOLUTELY NO singing chops.

    The only people who deny that are Stans.

    @Reasonable Voice —

    …Not ONLY on THIS Blog, but others, in-the-past, was RIAA’s sales-figure, as-far-as, Rihanna – had been mentioned! …I hadn’t initiated, NOR made said-reference; I, ONLY saw what was written and THEN decided to NOT take “Camp-Rihanna”/TMZ/Def Jam/Jay Z’s” word-for-it, and THEN decided to do some-of-my-very-own “investigating” to see ‘what-was-what’!

    –>> “Look, your argument has already been undercut.”<<– NO, it hasn't! The question STILL remains: "How do you 'rationalize' the discounting of a product/good/service, when said product/good/service is in GREAT demand?" …Fact is, you cant!! I have no-doubt that given the climate of "Rated R's" release, Def Jam had expected "Susan Boyle" type-numbers. And thus, Def Jam, spent prodigiously-and-unprecedentedly, but ONLY-now-come to the realization, we-ALL-NOW see! I-personally didn't expect Chris to do any of his-previous numbers, not only, because of "Feb 8th/09", but also due to the economic climate and the high-unemployment numbers of HIS audience/demographic. But, ALAS, he did make a good-showing…given HIS circumstances!

    …And, most-of-all, he is NOW the "underdog", as Monica said of him; and with THAT said, and given HIS many-talents: he ain't going no-where!!! Unlike Rihanna, and MOST in the music industry, HE does NOT have to rely on gimmicks, trickery, "false-witness" nor hype!
    But this argument is "premature", we should have THIS argument, come-end-of-summer '10…! …To which I'll again, state, this'll be an "Eventful-Summer"; have NO-doubt!

    “–>> “Look, your argument has already been undercut.”<<– NO, it hasn't!”

    Oh, but it has. The initial issue at hand, in this thread, as posed by Symone, and poorly defended by you, was “Camp Rihanna is lying big time about them not counting cd’s that sold for under 5 dollars,” but then I posted that link, taking your legs right out from under you. Now you’re trying to back track, discredit soundscan, and move the goal posts from Rihanna supposedly using the discount Amazon albums to pad her sales to “The question STILL remains: "How do you 'rationalize' the discounting of a product/good/service, when said product/good/service is in GREAT demand?"

    Sorry, but you’re not slick.

    Just because you can’t explain the rationale behind the Amazon promo doesn’t mean that there wasn’t a strategy behind it, one that had nothing to do with sales padding because, as I’ve proven with my Nielson link, albums sold below half price are disqualified from the overall count.

    Your quibbling over fewer than 10K albums proves nothing anyway, because even if you were to subtract the discount albums on Amazon from her Bilboard total, she would still be certified platinum.

  73. Musiq April 9, 2010

    I didn’t see American Idol but a friend of mine who is a fan of Rihanna saw her and even she said she was bad and she’s a big fan!………You are right her cd decreased in sales by 70 % the second week.She only sold 181,000 the first week,she was behind Susan Boyle who is hideous and showed no skin.Adam whats his name and GaGa was even ahead of her and yet her deluded and I might add obsessive Stans try to act as if she didn’t flop well apparently Def Jam feel otherwise because they panicked.

  76. Symone April 9, 2010

    To all Chris Brown fans.Don’t EVEN waste your time with these desperate ET Stans! The very fact that they are LYING and saying that cd’s don’t count if under 5 dollars is a COMPLETE LIE! One thing I notice about these Rihanna Stans is that they are SOME OF THE BIGGEST LIARS you will ever see! It should also tell Chris Brown fans that he has sold more than 300, 000 CD’S too because if he hadn’t ,these fools would not be so pressed about what he’s doing.

Truth be told I don’t read that person’s rants,so I wouldn’t know what she or he said and guess what I don’t care either. You see I know that you Rihanna Stans lie big time,plus you also quote bias stats from The White Media because you don’t know any better.

    Stll LMAO @ a Rihanna Stan speaking on people lying,what a contradiction coming from you lying fools.Tell you what ,you and the rest of The Stans can think what you want to think but I KNOW what I’m talking about,so get over it because I will continue to speak facts..

    These Rihanna Stans are so sad,yet I Laugh at them too because of how stupid and desperate they seem.Now these are the same people that will shout to anyone that tone deaf woman is The greatest singer on earth,yet they want you to believe the stats they give.Truth be told I noticed early on that they like to quote stats given by The Bias White Media and what’s even more manipulative is that The Stats they give are old stats plus The same bias media never tell people that SOUNDSCAN only count physical cd’s and not digital sales.

    @Reasonable Voice – Can you PLEASE again post the link? I don’t want to get “lost-in-the-verbiage”, just post the link, K?
    Now,THAT-SAID, I DON’T work in “The Industry”, nor am I affiliated with, nor even work on/in “peripheral-industries”!!

    …I had asked you, previously, but I got no reply/answer: “How do YOU know Rihanna ONLY sold 10K that-first-week, during ‘the discounting’ of HER units?” …And if YOU have this figure, what did Def Jam spend on “Rated R” as compared to their OTHER acts/artists? And if you know how-much was sold during THAT week, which I assume was MORE-THAN what was sold during any-previous-time, when the CD was “regularly-priced”; what EXACTLY were said sales figures, said-time-AFTER, per-weekly-basis?

    …And IF ANY sales during said time, as you stated 10K, and which you state is “negligible”, then why is it that Def Jam is VERY displeased with L.A. Reid; who NOW has to seek, employ-elsewhere?

    Now, as far as, I-myself trying to “discredit” SoundScan: “perish-the-thought”, what you saw me previously-made-post, and highlight, was taken directly from their site and, as I reasoned, was referencing THEIR “criteria” for “Counting-Units-Sold!” …You saw the link, go there for yourself, and have a read!!

    So, in-summation, I’m left with yet-MORE questions, THAN answers:
    1.) Why is L.A Reid, NOW seeking employment?
    2.)How do YOU know that ONLY 10K was sold during that week/day/time period that “Rated R” was sold for ONLY $0.99?
    3.)Why was “Rated R” ONLY sold for $0.99?
    4.)Where any-other of HER-projects sold for $0.99?
    5.)And if links were posted proving as much, can y’all post links showing other artist’s who sold their CDs for the same $0.99? ..If memory serves me correctly, I do-believe y’all did say OTHER artists sold their music for said $0.99: Adam Lambert and several others…

I’ve seen this FOR MYSELF THERE! …I think that link you posted is for SoundScan of Canada, I’m NOT sure if THAT itself is of any relevance, but I did see, for myself, that for Chris’ first weeks sales, “BRICK-AND-MORTAR” OTC(OVER THE COUNTER), U.S. SALES were counted!

  85. Symone April 9, 2010

    Exactly X ,Y and Z! That’s why I rarely pay those those fools any attention because they lie and don’t know what they are talking about. They are ignorant and they quote the bias media stats as if they are concrete facts.Sound scan only scan physical cd’s in The U.S. but you can’t tell those fools anything because they are blinded by bitterness.

And, let me state, I don’t know if this was a “one-time-thing”, or it’s their ‘general-procedure’, or-whatever, but I did see, as said-stated!!

  87. Symone April 9, 2010

    I really believe these fools are still upset because with all the hype their queen received,she still came in 4th her opening week.

    I mean you had Susan Boyle a hideous woman who sold almost 700,000 physical cd’s and she showed no skin and has talent.Then you had Adam Lambert who outsold Rihanna.By some accounts GaGa came in second because the combined sales of the old cd/ new EP sold about 325,000 that week!The funny thing is that Susan Boyle/Adam/GaGa didn’t have a sale on their cd’s,LMAO! If Rihanna hadn’t had those sales,she wouldn’t have even came in 4th place….Def Jam even bought some of her cd’s !

  88. Symone April 9, 2010

    …Yes, that beast DID wound Chris: no-doubt-bout-it, but mortally?!? …NO!

    So NOW, THAT beast is STILL-as-hungry; just-totally-as-ravenous-indeed; I’m sure YOU saw the furor that was directed at Matt Kemp, AND HIS-history: put-out-there, on “Main Street, Cyberspace!” TMZ, for THAT story, had hits, in the hundreds and 99.999% were vile, racist and utterly vulgar! …That was that “beast” I has just mentioned, THAT same beast got Kanye West barred/ostracized from Lady Gaga’s tour, and from that Haiti-Relief telethon, hosted, and (it’s said)arranged, by George Clooney. I wonder how Rihanna will feel, IF Kanye’s NEXT effort, said to be released this upcoming September, is met with the VERY-same ….”disenchantment/disgust”, how will THAT make Rihanna feel? …Isn’t Kanye HER friend? Isn’t Kanye, one of HER “big brothers?” …It’s that Karma, I-tell-y’all…it’s a MUTHA-FUCKA!!!

    Rihanna “rode-the-Tiger”, she fell off it’s back, as witnessed: the none-too-complementary comments, whenever SHE is the subject of ANY-post over-on TMZ; now SHE has to watch and pray THAT SAME BEAST won’t devour Kanye! …Will HE be nimble-on-his feet and ONLY escape: battered and bruised? … I WANT to see Harvey Levin “get his”, but more-so; who is MORE-deserving: Jay Z, yes, Jay Z is a b****** who deserves no-less-than a slow-public and painful, fatal blood-letting! …May HE burn-in-hell!!

    “I think that link you posted is for SoundScan of Canada”

    Yawn. Soundscan is the official method of tracking sales of music and music video products throughout the United States and Canada. So even if some of the wording is different, why wouldn’t the below 50% rule apply in Canada and not the US?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nielsen_SoundScan

    Here’s a link to Nielson’s US venue sales procedure and it
    says

    “Product that is sold at 50% below manufacturer’s list price at a venue will not be processed” That’s universal for Nielson soundscan

    http://en-us.nielsen.com/etc/medialib/nielsen_dotcom/en_us/documents/pdf/misc.Par.53186.File.14.09.pdf

    Symone wrote

    “The same bias media never tell people that SOUNDSCAN only count physical cd’s and not digital sales.”

    She said nothing about first week sales and neither did I. where in that sentence did she say “first week sales?” Where in Symone’s entire 5:43 post did she say she was referring only to first week sales? I reposted that soundscan link because symone said that soundscan didn’t count digital sales AT ALL. why don’t you try reading more carefully next time.
