Katy Perry Denies Rihanna The Top Spot

Published: Thursday 15th Jul 2010 by Sam

There appears to be no stopping Katy Perry; the Pop starlet’s smash ‘California Gurls’, this week, extends its #1 reign on the Billboard Hot 100 to six (consecutive) weeks.

The impressive feat has seen Perry fend off competition from Eminem and Runway Rihanna‘s ‘Love The Way You Lie’ – which has had to settle for the #2 spot on the chart for three weeks in a row now. (Side note: Am I the only one who considers ‘Love The Way You Lie’ uber overrated anyway?)

Other notable Hot 100 movements include Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Your Love’ – which jumps #23-#18,  Ciara‘s ‘Ride’ – which climbs #50-#45, and Ne-Yo, who’s ‘Beautiful Monster’ ascends #60-#56.

  2. HayleyluvsBey July 15, 2010

    Not even a big fan of RiRi BUT… KATY GTFO the top spot hunni, LTWYL is soooo much better than California Gurls. Eminem KILLS the verses and Rihanna’s chorus is heartfelt. <3

  3. JAYDEN July 15, 2010

    SAM you have always been a Rihanna hater.
    Thats fine, and thats your opinion BUT your blog is built around it.
    #norespect for you.

  4. tmak1988 July 15, 2010

    hmmm not really feelin the Em/Ri song, California Gurlz is amazing tho! Cant wait for the album.

  5. Stank Breath Beyaki July 15, 2010

    THE YOUNGEST ARTIST TO DO SO. YET YOU ALL SAY SHE IS NOT TALENTED. WELL THE MASSES DISAGREE. DO YOUR THING BABY GIRL I CONGRATULATE AND CELEBRATE YOUR SUCCESS. HATING ONLY BLOCK MY ATTEMPT AT PERSONAL HAPPINESS

    LET THE HATE BEGIN IN 5. 4. 3. 2. 1……..

  6. HayleyluvsBey July 15, 2010

    and OMG at Ciara… Your career is over.. WHY BOTHER? #duckout.

  7. Blasian July 15, 2010

    Well Ppl LOVE Eminem his first single hit #1 aswell…. Eminem has agreat fan base. Rihanna couldn’t even get Rockstar 101 to get on the Charts…. It’s all Eminem

  8. TheBaddestBitch July 15, 2010

    Love The Way You Lie is a bit overrated BUT it’s still MILES better that California S***.

  9. Christian Hain July 15, 2010

    I like Love the Way you Lie. Of course, I really only like Rihanna’s part (even though you discredit her as a singer, it doesn’t sound that bad when I sing over top of her).

    But I think it speaks to a lot of people who stay in abusive/unloving relationships.

    Either way, GOOD JOB KATY!!

  10. ADE July 15, 2010

    I love the way the titles reads that Katy Perry denies RIHANNA the top spot when it’s Eminem’s song and she’s only a featured artist. Anything for hits eh…

  11. stan July 15, 2010

    garbage song.

  12. Tha Phoenix July 15, 2010

    Love The way you lie > California Gurls

    California Gurls – as anyone with any musical knowledge will know – is Tik Tok with different lyrics & a slightly altered beat.

    That is all.

  13. ADE July 15, 2010

    Oh and Love The Way You Lie is so much better than California Gurls, that song sucks ass!

  14. jonberry July 15, 2010

    I hate the music industry all that you mentioned is complete garbage. When will the control in the music industry end. Only a hand-full of artists are placed on the countdown wherever the powers that be want them to fall. WIFE ABSUE Eminem makes a song with a little coward who smacked around her boyfriend causing him to whoop her tail, Rihanna and this is something to celebrate? I see why the world is in the turmoil that it is in!

  15. Blasian July 15, 2010

    Yeah lets celebrate for a Boy beating the hell out of you and lying woohoo partyyyyyyy! *side eye* Rihyodel is a joke

  16. CIARADABESS July 15, 2010

    Ciara RIDE is doing phenomenal for no promo whatsoever. I can’t wait til she performs it, so it can sky rocket into the top 10. And airplay is amazing too. It’s a hit!

  17. DizzyGuy1985 July 15, 2010

    I love Katy Perry but I’m sick of hearing that song.

    B****** aint even from California and jamming to the track.

    Love the way you lie is sadistic s***.

    Love the way you hate on Riri. Just give it a rest.

  18. Justin July 15, 2010

    This is really sad. What has music industry has come to? Two most talentless girls holding the top spot Katty Perry & Rihanna … This world is going downhill.

  19. Seductress July 15, 2010

    EMINEM – Love The Way You Lie f/Rihanna: 70.611 (+ 3.646) Also check the pop bars number one next week. Although she is featurd on the song it will still be added to her #1’s. Rude Boy was solo and still hit number one. I bet PRETTY BOI SWAG with Souljah and Cerror will not chart. So hate all you want. Let’s see how well CERROR SELLS she she drops. I WILL BE LMWAO

    http://twitpic.com/25j1kb -The crowd from last night…..CAN CERROR DO THIS AND KERI HILSON AND CBREEZY

  20. DROPPIN BOMBS July 15, 2010

    Anything for hits Samantha. You’ve gotten more and more desperate and I’ve been visiting this site since 2007. And this will be my last visit.

    Katy Perry didn’t block anything. She’s dropping fast on iTunes, LTWYL will definitely go #1 next week. That will be her 7th #1 hit, and I will expect another pathetic post of animosity towards her having more #1s than any of your favorite flop artists.

    And FYI, Kelly Rowland is flopping with not one, not two, but THREE singles. Commander flopped on itunes, Rose colored glasses flopped, and Grown Woman flopped so badly they canceled its iTunes release date and now her album is pushed back. OOPS.

  21. nothing but my opinion July 15, 2010

    I dont like both songs and Love The Way You Lie is em’s song im sick of these riri stans actin like its hers, we all know if Eminem wasnt on it, it would have been a flop like Te Amo and Flopstar 101.

  22. YEA July 15, 2010

    @HayleyluvsBey
    Honey her career is doing just fine…how’s YOUR career? Thats fine..I’ll wait…

  23. that stupid juice July 15, 2010

    Its so sad to see people get all gitty because someone fails.I am happy for Katy Rihanna Breezy Usher etc etc. I’m not even a huge fan of all of them, I just like seeing. People do well. Sam Trent and the rest of u jealous people need a touch from God. Sam there is no way u truly thank God for ur blessings. If u were truly greatful u would love to see others do well. Sam/Trent are idiots

  24. Secret Voice July 15, 2010

    LMAO @ what Sam and Trent applicable description of “The popular street (I mean stage walker) being given the credit by her delusional for that no rapping white boy’s song! Carry on Rih stooges!

  25. hottiehellyeah July 15, 2010

    If rihanna gets more no.1!!!The world is going to hell!!
    RIHANNA WILL NEVER BE LIKE BEYONCE!

  26. “Dj Y2k Malone” July 15, 2010

    it may not be #1 this week but it will next be next week for sure and yes this will count for Rihanna having 7 #1 songs both EMINEM and RIHANNA made this song she’s in the record books

  27. NOTHERSATALL July 15, 2010

    Well Well Well if it’s not the women beater and the abused women. This s*** is real funny but hay her fans seems love her being with that women beater of all times. First of all that song Love the way you lie with that ending of him saying tying her to the bed and setting the house on fire is Eminem’s song not Rihanna she just ft on it. She will get something for being on his song but she will not make what he will be making by a long shot.

    HATER BY MAYA ANGELOU

    A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends
    all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.

    They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough!

    When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…

    That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share
    your blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t
    handle seeing you blessed…

    It’s dangerous to be like somebody else… If God
    wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right?

    You never know what people have gone through to get what they have…
    The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don’t know my story…
    If the grass looks greener on the other side of the
    fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!

    We’ve all got some haters among us!

    Some people envy you because you can:
    a) Have a relationship with God
    b) Light up a room when you walk in
    c) Start your own business
    d) Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn’t about the right thing)
    e) Raise your children without both parent being in the home

    Haters can’t stand to see you happy.
    Haters will never want to see you succeed.

    Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side.

    How do you handle your undercover haters?

    You can handle these haters by:

    1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are (VERY IMPORTANT!!)
    2. Having a purpose to your life:
    Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be unfulfilled.
    A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be.
    Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.
    3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation.

    Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live…when its your time to leave this earth, you ‘want’ to be able to say, ‘I’ve lived my life and fulfilled ‘my’ dreams,… Now I’m ready to go HOME!

    When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters,
    ‘Don’t look at me…Look at Who is in charge of me…’

    Pass this to all of your family & friends who you know
    are not hating on you including the person who sent it to
    you. If you don’t get it back, maybe you called somebody
    out! Don’t worry about it, it’s not your problem,
    it’s theirs.. Just pray for them, that their life can be as
    fulfilled as yours! Watch out for Haters…BUT most of all don’t
    become a HATER!

    ‘A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that
    a man should have to seek Him first to find her.’

    Maya Angelou

  29. NOTHERSATALL July 15, 2010

    wow Then I think you all should stop hating on all the artists. Not just one.

  30. royalkev July 15, 2010

    @ Jon berry, I totally agree with you 10,000%. I hate the control in the industry. None of these current hits would be dominating the charts in the 80’s,90’s or early ’00’s. I think both of these songs are garbage. I like Katy’s more though out of the two and it’s a crying shame that Rihanna has the most #1’s this decade. It’s really pathetic that half of them were as a featured artist. People swear this girl is doing damage somewhere! Anyway, I hope Katy holds on for another 3weeks! Good to hear about Cici’s progress! I’m happy for Niki and Ne-yo as well(although I’m not crazy about their music too).

  31. blue-LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE SAM! July 15, 2010

    congrats katy! i wonder how long sam prayed last night that katy holds on to the top stop? dont hold that breath too long next week sam rihanna shall conquer!

  32. blue-LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE SAM! July 15, 2010

    @royalkev y do u hate it? because the songs were horrible or because their rihannas? and only 1 is a ft. all the other 5 are her alone.

  33. Lewis92 July 15, 2010

    Hey people! Don’t be stupid… OMG you just live in England..I see..
    Soo.. It isn’t an accident that California Girls is number1 for 6 weeks. Katy is really great and wonderful, her voice rocks, the video is fantastic, too, and the song is the anthem of this summer. Are you blind, Englishmen??? A lot of people says that you are a bit weird. Now, I can confirm that they’re right..

  34. royalkev July 15, 2010

    @ Blue love the way you lie – Sam! I’m not hating! Rihanna just gets away with having no talent. I did love Take a bow! I played that all day on my ipod. I think her early stages in her career was sort of forced. I guess because she use to screw Jay. Anyway, Rihanna hasn’t done much lately that’s too impressive!

  35. blue-LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE SAM! July 15, 2010

    @royalrev u r hating. no talent? please the girl can sing and better then most have u heard her perform rr or take a bow live? damn all the reviews for tour says that its on the slow songs that she the strongest! the fact that u can call her talentless already has u hating. its one thing if u dont like her voice, but to call her talentless…hell i hate brandys voice, i hate her singing but i know the gal got a voice and major talent.

  36. blue-LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE SAM! July 15, 2010

    @royalrev and neither had bey done anything impressive on her last album but win 6 grammies. can u call her a flop?

  37. jojo July 15, 2010

    RIHANNA WILL BE NUMBER 1 NEXT WEEK(FOR SURE) WHY YALL COME ON EVERY RIHANNA POST AND DEBATE IF SHE HAS TALENT OR NOT ..DONT YALL GET TIRED OF THAT S***…….AND @ ROYALKEV …RIHANNAS SIX NUMBER ONES ARE SOS,UMBRELLA,TAKE A BOW,DISTURBIA,LIVE YOU LIFE,AND RUDE BOY…..ONLY ONE OF THEM SHE WAS A FEATURED ARTIST (AND NOW LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE…WHICH WILL BE #1 NEXT WEEK) SHE CAN HOLD HER OWN DONT GET IT TWISTED …P.S RUN THIS TOWN WHICH SHE WAS FEATURED ON WENT #2 ………….RIHANNNNNNNA RULES,BEYONCE RULESSSSSSS,GAGA RULESSSSSS,CHRIS BROWN AND CIARA FLOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP LMAO!!!!

  38. royalkev July 15, 2010

    @Blue – love the way you lie Sam… You know what, I’m so not a Rihanna hater. I usually get bored with her and I just comment on her post when I think there needs to be a dose of honesty on the board! I truly hate Gaga, but I think she has more talent than Riri. I honestly can’t see anything about her that is worth me giving a damn! She can’t sing, nor can she dance. She lacks any passion, she does add any real emotion to her music live. I swear she’s a robot! She falls on stage like one, gets up like one.
    Comparing Bey and Brandy to this girl is a joke! These women are artist. They have a certain musicality to them – substance! Halo, Single Ladies and Sweet Dreams aren’t impressive? I don’t know how you put 6grammy wins and flop in the same sentence. I don’t even get off on there accomplishments. I know my girls scrub the floor with a Rihanna anyday!

  39. royalkev July 15, 2010

    @ Jojo Ciara don’t want a piece of Cici… If they were on stage at the same time! Ciara would make that girl look like a bore! She would trip over herself leaving the stage… and then comparing her to Chris Brown…

    You really can’t speak from an honest place can you?

  40. royalkev July 15, 2010

    Jojo * That’s Rihanna don’t want a piece of Cici…

  41. CC July 15, 2010

    Ciara climbing to #45 on the Hot 100 is pretty good! First of all, “Ride” has had no major promotion so getting to the top half of the Hot 100 is good!

    Furthermore, R&B music isn’t very popular with the masses any more…the highest R&B song on the Hot 100 is #21. Proper r&b just doesn’t do that well anymore, Pop has taken over!

  45. Mia July 15, 2010

    What’s worst is that ” Your Love” is climbing up the charts. Actually what’s sad is that the top of the charts are filled with songs that have no meaning no substance no.yet people who write amazing music , put effort in their talent , care about music…struggle to stay relevant!

  46. TOMI July 15, 2010

    Where are these #1’s when Rihanna needs them to sell out her concerts too bad they can’t help her. It’s just really sad that this is the only thing that her fans can boast about #1s and top tens. Lady Gaga is the queen right now she is taking over the world, breaking records and her album is selling like hot cakes, she does not need to depend on #1’s to stay relevant, and when will you fans realise that having most #1s does not equal talent. Right now it ain’t about who has the most #1s because if it was that, Lady Gaga would not be on top of MUSIC WORLD right now Rihanna would.

    GAGA THE QUEEN

  62. Dont Hate Appreciate July 15, 2010

    The only reason why Te Amo was a “flop” is because it was an old song. It was an underground smash hit all over the world even before Rated R came out so obviously people would have gotten tired of it after hearing it for months and months.

    If her label was going to put a leaked track on Rated R they should have put Hatin On The Club now that would have been massive.

  63. Lucky July 15, 2010

    @jojo~ Rihanna has not soldout any of her concerts here in the USA, in Scarmento, Ca, she had 9,000 people at a venue that seat 17, 317. She has dropped some of her large arena’s to 5,000 seaters, you can read this on the net

    . ” Last month, Rihanna’s July 22 concert — originally scheduled for the Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ — was moved to the significantly smaller AVA Amphitheater at Casino de Sol in Tucson, AZ. Tickets for the 20,000-capacity Pavilion had ranged from $25.75 up to $95.75, according to Live Nation. Prices for the performance in the 5,000-capacity AVA range from $60 to $125.
    In Tuscon, tickets for front reserved seats are sold-out, and only a handful remain unsold in the rear of the amphitheater, according to seat maps on the venue’s official Web site. While 2,000 general admission lawn tickets are still available”

    So please stop with the madness…. she still has good seats available on all of her dates, maybe minus NY, so if she’s still have 2,000 tickets left for a 5,000 seater well…….

  64. MUSIC LOVER July 15, 2010

    Look at these stupid b****** arguing. Whether you guys like it or not, the top songs in this moment are those with superficial lyrics backed by a pop song. That is why “OMG” went to number one, as did “California Girls.” This shouldn’t come as a shock that Katy is still never one.

    We all know “LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE” will go to #1 once the video is released and the momentum of “CALIFORNIA GIRLS” has finally halted.

    When is Ciara going to start promoting? Time is ticking!!!

  65. MUSIC LOVER July 15, 2010

    never–> number*

  66. Ciara sexiest woman alive July 15, 2010

    NO TALENT nicki and rihanna have successfully STOPPED PEOPLE FROM BUYING MUSIC. They are hurting the industry. Top talent will not be motivated to give their best as long as industry heads try to force GIMMICK ACTS down our throat.

  67. U DO DO IS STALKING CIARA July 15, 2010

    @jojo
    U Rihanna fans R so damn busy trying to stop the competition. That’s why u need to remain in the 3rd world. U R not intelligent enough to know that AMERICA THRIVES on competition. IT IS THE AMERICAN FREE ENTERPRISE WAY. Instead of rihanna working hard on her craft she is paying fools to try and hate the competition out of business. 4 that u people need to be locked away in your caves, and not allowed in the civilized world.

  68. aries_BLU July 15, 2010

    That song IS really overrated.

  69. ~TeAM WeeZY~ July 15, 2010

    I like “Love the Way you Lie,” but I absolutely despise that atrocity of a song “California Girls.” I like Katy Perry and I think she has a pretty good voice, but I don’t like alot of her songs because they’re too generic. I’m pretty sure “LTWYL” will go to number one because it’s an Eminem song, DUH! Almost everything he does is a success, mainly album sales.

    Rihanna stans need use what knowledge they do possess, and realize that Rihanna will get credit for the #1, but she is NOT the reason it is going to #1. If you kids actually think about it, how could Rihanna be the reason “LTWYL” goes #1, if her own ish (Rockstar 101) is FLOPPING! I mean come on, it’s just not logical to think she’s the reason for the song’s success people!

  70. ~TeAM WeeZY~ July 15, 2010

    Oh yeah, they went in on Rihanna’s cancelled tour dates on Big Boy’s Neighborhood the other day! Straight HILARITY!

  71. Busta Rats July 15, 2010

    DO THE RESEACH. TE AMO IS NOT A US SINGLE AND A YEAR BEFORE IT WAS RELEASED WAS NUMBER ONE ON SEVERAL INTERNATIONAL CHARTS

    #TeAmo Europe! Up 2 positions from #20 to #18 on European Hot 100

    HOW IS THAT A FLOP. WHAT NUMBER IS CERROR ON THE UK CHARTS. CERROR IS AN AMERICAN ARTIST RIHANNA IS INTERNATIONAL. LET’S SEE CERROR TOUR OVERSEAS AND SELL OUT 60% OF HER TOUR? I’LL BE WAITING FOR THAT. WAKE ME UP WELL HER ALBUM DEBUT SELLING MORE THAN 181K THE FIRST WEEK AND GO ON TO SELL 500K. I AM WILLING TO BET ANY CERROR STAN THAT BASIC INSTINCTS WILL FLOP.

    All the music in the top 10 of the hot 100 on billboard is pure s***.

  73. blue-LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE SAM! July 15, 2010

    @royalrev r u sure in that order? elton john is a better songwriter then neyo, mariah, mj, neyo and plus his vocals blow mj, neyo, obama and mike j. mj is a better dancer then neyo, whitney has the voice but mariah kills her in range and songwriting bey has a better voice then neyo, elton john, mj obama, mike j. but neyo is the better songwriter, mike j can shoot baskets, elton can play the piano better then all the above. obama is a better public speaker and can inspire dreams of peace in a world conflicted. so again who is more talented?

  74. Kim July 15, 2010

    Who really cares about getting to number 1. It doesnt make a artist less talented or rubbish. To be honest most of the good songs are not even in the top 40. Music is not how it used to be. Poeple buy a load of rubbish example Katy Perry. This woman has no talent whatsoever and she can get to number 1. All you have to do is take of you clothes and look s*** and your up there. Lots of todays generation dont know about real music. As long as its catchy they will buy it. Its not about the quality anymore. Rihanna is talented, ok not the best singer but shes decent. I personally think she should go back to her old days with the raggae, dancehall sound as that suits her best and more suits her voice.

  75. right round July 15, 2010

    Oh you aren’t the only one Sam. “Love the way” is so bland! It’s only popular because Eminem is like the king of the charts at the moment.

    “Ride” is doing well! Hopefully its 2nd week on the UK charts will bring great numbers too. I would love to see some televised performances soon!

  77. royalkev July 15, 2010

    @ Blue – love the way you lie sam…
    Really? Are you basing this off of your own personal taste or what each artist has accomplished (and how you think their ranked in the world and on all time greatest list).
    I’d probably form a different
    Songwriting: MJ(he was the best with packaging melodies/harmonies with a message), Elton John, Mariah(plenty of depth to her older material ), Beyonce, Ne-yo and Obama and M. Jordan(tie, for obvious reasons).

    Vocals: Whitney(her octaves weren’t as high as M.C.’s, but what she did with them is amazing), Mariah…(ofcourse these 2 were IN THEIR PRIME)
    (as of today, 1st place) Beyonce, MJ and then Elton, Ne-yo and again, Obama ties with Jordan.

    Dancing: MJ, Beyonce, Ne-yo, Obama and Jordan,Whitney, Mariah then Elton.

    Baskets: Jordan
    Piano: Elton
    Public speaking: Obama
    Most talented: Oprah

    The post next week will be about Rihanna 7th number 1.

    Good Day.

  79. S*** July 15, 2010

    I agree Love The Way You Lie is over rated. Its GENERIC, Its RUBBISH & just O.K at best. Not Afraid, Telephone, & Rude Boy are the best songs in the hot 100 right now by far. California Gurls is good for what it is, a cute bubblegum/summer song & I hope it stays at #1 cause Rihanna lucking up on another un-deserved #1 is a No No.

  80. blue-LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE SAM! July 15, 2010

    @royalrev again who among them can u say is the most talented? u must have a device somewhere that can measure talent, if u can say that gaga is more talented then rihanna then u should be able to tell me that since mj was a great dancer, songerwriter that he is more talented, or that since whitney had the voice she was talent, or that since mariah had the range and songwriting skills she tops them all, or that neyo takes it, or that mike j shooting baskets is better or that obamas ability to inspiration is more god given. then ask urself this would god really favour one human more then another?

  81. OSCAR July 15, 2010

    @team weezy

    then why did it become sooo popular …….eminem released a new record with 13 songS, 2 featuring pink and lil wayne………………people could have liked those other 13 song and they could have beome big hits on itunes and the charts but the only one other than not afraid that became a hit was the one with rihanna …………..i KNOW that rihanna is the reason its popular ……causeITS THE ONLY SONG ON THE ALBUM THAT BECAME POPULAR AND though em did a good rap on the song its not his best rapping on the album…………..SO NOW EXPLAIN HOW RIHANNA ISNT THE REASON FOR THE SONGS SUCCESS? P.S ROCKSTAR FLOPPED CAUSE ITS A BAD SONG …TEAMO WAS NOT RELEASED AS ASINGLE INTHE U.S

    @Oscar

    Because it’s a good song! If someone else sung the chorus (Hayley Williams) it would have still been a success, hun! It’s not like people are into the song or buying the song because Rihanna is on it! That’s stupid! I mean you’re a stan so you will say that the song is popular because of her, which is really simple minded IMO. If you think people are buying that song because Rihanna is ON THE FREAKIN CHORUS then you’re crazy!

    And so what if “Rockstar 101” is a bad song! That’s not an excuse for it flopping! How could you say that Rihanna being on LTWYL is the reason it’s a success but not because it’s just a good song! That doesn’t make sense, because if that was the case then Rockstar 101 would be a success regardless if it’s a bad song or not because it’s a Rihanna song, no?

    @DJ Y2K Malone

    LMAOOOOO! Honey it’s been on the “Dance Club charts” but that doesn’t mean S***! Really? Dance Club chart? LMAOOO! Girl that is a FLOOOOPPPPP! Yeah that sure is something to brag about: “Rockstar 101 was such as success it went to #4 on the oh-so-hard-to-get-on dance club charts” LMAOOOO! Awwww, it’s okay. Nice try hun, but you could try again though!

    @jojo~ Rihanna has not soldout any of her concerts here in the USA, in Scarmento, Ca, she had 9,000 people at a venue that seat 17, 317. She has dropped some of her large arena’s to 5,000 seaters, you can read this on the net

    . ” Last month, Rihanna’s July 22 concert — originally scheduled for the Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ — was moved to the significantly smaller AVA Amphitheater at Casino de Sol in Tucson, AZ. Tickets for the 20,000-capacity Pavilion had ranged from $25.75 up to $95.75, according to Live Nation. Prices for the performance in the 5,000-capacity AVA range from $60 to $125.
    In Tuscon, tickets for front reserved seats are sold-out, and only a handful remain unsold in the rear of the amphitheater, according to seat maps on the venue’s official Web site. While 2,000 general admission lawn tickets are still available”

    So please stop with the madness…. she still has good seats available on all of her dates, maybe minus NY, so if she’s still have 2,000 tickets left for a 5,000 seater well…….
    _____________________________________________________________________________________
    Madison square Garden is not sold out, there are seats still available.

  86. NICKY July 16, 2010

    Hahaahahahahha the point is she’s going to have 7 # 1 songs haahahaha

    That rihanna reign will never let up! Her tour is doing well considering rated r was dark. Can’t wait for the monster dance smash album!!!!!!!!! More #1 singles and millions of albums sold! A bigger tour!!!!!!

    All at 22 yrs old!!!! Smmmoooches!

    I predict 10 # 1 songs after the next era…..tied with the incomparable janet jackson!!!!

  87. jonberry July 16, 2010

    @royalkev,

    Thank you, somebody else who feels my PAIN! I have no problem with anyone receiving accolades for a job well done but this crap the music produces today is pure garbage! The songs don’t have to be of good quality, well crafted or sang to perfection they just have to have “certain” artists attached to them…WTH is that? I miss the quality in music. I am so tired of the “pile onto songs” where everybody and their mother is on the track for instance DJ Kalid’s “ALL I DO IT WIN” (remix)…OMG, R U serious?

  88. jonberry July 16, 2010

    @jojo

    I don’t care how many times the media props that chick up, she will always be average, just another “stage walker” needing someone to keep her afloat….Eminem, T.I., Gay-Z, Kanye!

  89. Rated x July 16, 2010

    nah, Sam youre not the only one who thinks LOVE THe WAY YOU LIE, sucks a**.
    rihannas voice fugg up the song for me,
    hell I would rather listen to the song without her nasal goat in heat singing voice.

    dang i hate california gurls too, but i rather vote for that song

  90. keepingitreal July 16, 2010

    yall tell me how to vote for califonia gals….ill rather have that song than rihanna coz her stanz wont shut up

  91. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 16, 2010

    @Seductress:That definitely looks like a full house to me.Yet Rihanna has ALWAYS had a moderate following here in the U.S when it comes to touring… But its increasing quite well mite i add. Her following worldwide is much larger though ill be the first to admit. But most A-List musicians are. Ciara, on the other hand, has NEVER done it so ppl please don’t compare their successes cuz Ciara has never reached Rihanna’s heights. And talent-wise, Cici lost herself and its too late 2 turn back now so R.I.P to her music career and scream hello to her modeling/fashion/choreographer career. @MIA: Im no fan of Nicki Minaj at all but it was QUITE impressive to see that “Your Love” wit absolutely NO promo and hardly anytime on the charts is already a top-20 hit. AMAZING…. Ci-Ci has a video for “Ride” and its been out since May and her song is still scrapping outside the Top 40, i don’t even like her and i hope she make it to the Top 40 next week just to make her obsessive fans happy.

  92. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 16, 2010

    & Rih-Rih said it best, “There’s so much power in my name. If you pop off in yo’ seat steady imma do the wave”… She’s the only artist on TGJ guarenteed to get more than 50 comments. Now whether u like her not, u must admit thats power? LMFAO

  93. chrisstiaan88 July 16, 2010

    denys Rihanna the top spot ?? Im pretty sure its Eminem’s song lol ….. And Rihanna runs this game and slays every other artist

  94. Shouw July 16, 2010

    Me too I tought that was eminem’s song !

  95. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 16, 2010

    @chrisstiaan88
    It is Eminem’s song but his name isn’t nearly as POWERFUL as Rih’s so of course TGJ is going to throw her name in the article. Now LTWYL is a bonafide hit but TGJ is praising “Ride” a song wit absolutely no message and thats been FLOPPING on the low end of the charts for the longest #SMH

  96. newsflash haters July 16, 2010

    yeah to those saying its all eminem, but yet still he didn’t think he could pull it off solo, so what did he do run for ms. RI RI to put her on the track guaranteeing a certified hit. Yeah rockstar may not be doing well, but in my opinion, it was a wrong choice for a single, should have released photographs instead and that would have been the hit follow up to rude boy, but when its all said and done 2 top tens and a number 1 hit from rated r is still a good showing, considering the many artist who can’t even get those numbers. So yeah my girl ri ri does it again put her name on something and it takes off. haters stay eating your hearts out. jealousy and envy is a biatch.

  97. jay25 July 16, 2010

    I hate Ne-yo`s new song. I kinda feel bad for him now that Usher is back in the building. Trey is killing and my boy Chris is on his way back on the charts. He is going to have to find his place among then I do not think he is going to do it with BM. Those are just my thoughts.

  98. True Blue July 16, 2010

    I love Katy, but I agree that California Gurls is played out. Not even a good song. As for Love The Way You Lie, it’s a good song because it’s an EMINEM song. Like Team Weezy pointed out, it wouldn’t have mattered who sung the chorus, Rihanna DEFINITELY isn’t known for her great vocals, and she’s not as popular as she was three years ago, so her name being attached to the song has nothing to do with its success. If anything, Rihanna needs big name artists to have successful singles, not the other way around as the stans seem to so desperately want to believe. I understand being a big fan of an artist, but loving them doesn’t mean that your perception of reality should be distorted. Accept the facts as they are instead of exaggerating s***. If you really love Rihanna, you will stand by her whether she’s successful or flopping. But when she is flopping, don’t try and deny it. You look stupid and desperate stanning for someone who doesn’t even know your existence, nor care for it.

  99. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 17, 2010

    @JAYDEN: Yes this entire blog is built around hating Rihanna. I mean i respect ur opinion but its only entertaining to ppl for so long. This blog is becoming repetitive. Make a segment/Praise an artist(S)/Throw Rihanna’s name in the main article or headline in some negative way/Create traffic on the website. And don’t u haters even try n deny that this has become the fashion of TGJ… Even the worst of artists (i.e. Janelle Monae) can boost their ratings if Rihanna’s name is tossed in the article. SMFH, this s#%t sad as hell. Its time to do somthin diff’rent its degrading and play’d out #SomeNewS#%t! PLEEZ!!!

  100. xohelokityx July 17, 2010

    i’m not a fan of either, but I deffinately choose ‘California Gurls’ over ‘Love The Way You Lie’. ‘nough said.

  101. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 18, 2010

    Ome more thing, since when did peaking at #2 become settling? Just make sure you make an article higlighting when the song goes #1. And since u made it your business to place this as Rihanna song in this segment please put that it is RIHANNA’s song whe SHE goes #1 next week….

  102. KatieAfricanBabyface November 17, 2010

    Sorry but Rihannah suck and Katy Rocks but Gaga is better then both of them.

    now all of you can shutup and get over it 😉
