Rihanna Lines Up First Single From New Album

Published: Friday 20th Aug 2010 by Sam

It’s been just nine months since Rihanna unleashed her lukewarmly-received ‘Rated R’ LP on the public. Yet that hasn’t stopped the vocal terror from ditching the project altogether in favour of an entirely new album, the first single of which is set to premiere sooner than you may think.

Full story below…

Sources close to the project both took to Twitter last night to tease the notion that the Bajan bleater’s new single is nigh.

The model’s record label SRP/Def Jam tweeted:

Get ready to dance@rihanna peeps…

Meanwhile reliable fansite Rihanna Daily posted:

Rihanna’s new single is coming “very soon”

While I’m sure Fashionista Fenty’s fans will welcome such news, the same can’t be said for yours truly. After all, as with all Rihanna album campaigns, we’ll no doubt be subject to media-flooded promo, microwaved music, and performances which sound like an exorcism. I can’t wait…

    O Lord, please take the wheel. I can’t….

  3. ERIC August 20, 2010

    GOOD! KEEP IT UP RIHANNA, TRUE ARTISTS NEVER STOP! 🙂

  4. rexy August 20, 2010

    Well Def Jam is gonna promote the hell out of it, she is gonna be all over our tv. With the status her fans give her she should about 300-400k in first, she can’t stay in the 100k for so long

  5. That Cranberry Sauce August 20, 2010

    LMFAO @ true artists.

    She don’t stop cause she can’t. The year she don’t put out a album will be the year she is GONE BABY GONE.

  6. JJFan1814 August 20, 2010

    QUEEN B, STFU, U JUST MAD THAT BEYONCE CAN’T SLAY MUSIC WITH HER SINGLES LIKE RIHANNA CAN.

    RIHANNA IS ABOUT TO SHUT POP MUSIC DOWN. THAT IS ALL. HER REIGN WON’T LET UP.

    SAM, STFU, YOU JUST MADE THAT YOUR FAVS HADN’T HAD A HIT IN A WHILE. OH OK.

  7. I’m just saying August 20, 2010

    I am not a stan of Rihanna, Gaga or Beyonce. But I would just like to point out that Grown Woman is still in the bottom 50 of Billboard’s R&B chart. I’m still looking for Rose Colored Glasses with a flashlight in the daytime.

    *sips tea*

  8. R****** August 20, 2010

    OMW I CANT WAIT

  9. Lala August 20, 2010

    I honestly think its too soon for her to be releasing a new album. This makes it seem like they didnt make any money off Rated R or something. They’re gonna make people get tired of her (which some already are)

  10. rexy August 20, 2010

    @jjfan in order for rihanna to shut the pop game down, her album has to sell like crazy, like lady gaga, thats why gaga is the reigning pop princess right now. You are right beyonce can’t slay with singles because she is not a singles artist like rihanna, her album sells, and thats how you shut the game down

  11. kapri August 20, 2010

    f*** rihanna her career is over her last two singles flopped shes not relevant no more nobody gives a s*** about her no more

  12. Sasha August 20, 2010

    She needs to sit the f*** down for a minute. Damn I’m sick of this broad.

  13. JP August 20, 2010

    I kind of have a good feeling about this…for some reason.

    Hopefully her team doesn’t make the same mistake as before….Over-promising and under-delivering.

    It’s better if her team under-promises and delivers a monster club banger! I’m hoping she can turn her career around after Rated-Catastrophe.

  14. get like me August 20, 2010

    This gonna be fun

  15. Heaven August 20, 2010

    Something is WAY WRONG- someone explain it. Trent or Sam?

  16. Lala August 20, 2010

    @Rexy I doubt that she will sell that much first week. I mean she was all over our tv’s and blogs all last year. She performed at the AMA’s, she did GMA, 20/20 and Oprah even gave her a shoutout on her show and told people to go buy her album the day before it came out. And with all the sympathy she got last year she should have done Susan Boyle type numbers. If all that didnt make it happen I dont think it will happen now

  17. breezywife August 20, 2010

    f*** rihanna herpie a** nobody gives a s*** about her but all her 10 fans she got

    o_O Good Luck With that Riri

  25. Conundrum August 20, 2010

    is that the reason why you haters so really mad?
    8th Number one single in the making. I hopre this drops sometime in october and album in December.

    I have nothing but faith in Rihanna. Rated is >>>> than our faves previous albums .. prolly their entire catalogue so dont trip.
    Might as well just die.

  26. @ciaramedlies August 20, 2010

    case closed this year belongs 2 CIARA , “gimme that” and “speechless” will SLAYY

    @CIARAMEDLIES Ain’t nobody checking for He-Error.

  28. breezywife August 20, 2010

    @wowza but chris brown deuces has been better than rihanna last two singles what happen to rockstar101 and teamo what the name is yes its off a mixtape but its top 5 right know and by thats emimen num 1 not rihannas

  29. Soulful Roses August 20, 2010

    Wow…Rated R hasn’t even been out a year yet. But good luck Rihanna…

  30. Dev August 20, 2010

    I gotta worry about this. Artists like Cassie and Rihanna are invested and they seemed to be forced down our throats, Rihanna with an album every year and Cassie with a album still in the making.

  31. Badd August 20, 2010

    ^^ Yes.
    Idk why they’re releasing album after album.
    It’s not helping her.

  32. Badd August 20, 2010

    @ Soulful.

  33. Lioness August 20, 2010

    she kills the dance tracks…thats where she needs to stay and she will be fine. still not buying or seeing her live though..i have more fun jammin in the shower

  34. ILOVEXTINA August 20, 2010

    Too soon Rihanna, I guess they’re no more single-worthy songs on Rated R. Maybe she’s gonna call her new album “Rated R Monster”

  35. OUPS I S*** ON YOU AGAIN … August 20, 2010

    WHY CANT RIHANNA TAKE A 6 MONTHS BREAK ???
    WHY THE UNTALENTED B*TCHES GOT THE RIGHT TO PUT OUT ALBUMS EVERY YEAR AND NOT THE TALENTED ONES ??

    GIMME AMY
    GIMME BEY
    GIMME DUFFY

  36. lax August 20, 2010

    rihanna please keep doing you, and let them talk until they get tired you stay on your grind. those who bad mouth you are not supporting you anyway so they do not count, in no way shape are form.

  37. RosaRubbel August 20, 2010

    Album after album. Slowly the world gets a Rihanna overdoze lmao. If she can’t pull off successful 1st week numbers this time, she’ll be over.

  38. truth August 20, 2010

    ok i like all diff artist and i dont compare artist like u haters do……..but this website is dedicated to ruining rihannas name…….sam has a complex…….i prefer nicole bitchie .com shes not biased……this webiste needs to be replaced with clever ppl

  39. lax August 20, 2010

    if the so called untalented bytch says shes the baddest thing in heels, you best believe it
    because she is. and she do not have to take a break , ever if you do not like her hit the click button and keep your retarded spineless self moving.

  40. lax August 20, 2010

    shes a badass! and she keeps you haters on the job of checking for her hard and heavy oh its so beautiful.

    … The Rihanna Effect?! … What “Rihanna Effect” …?? … This one:
    http://www.oberjuerge.com/http:/www.oberjuerge.com/how-do-you-like-matt-kemp-now/

    … Everyone/anyone whose-EVER had some sort/semblance of a close/intimate relationship with “Toxic-Fenty” “took a loss,” of some-sort or another!
    Here’s an excerpt from one of the comments, i.e., Rihanna’s affect on Matt Kemp:

    “I couldn’t agree with you more. In my mind its the RIHANNA THING. He THINKS HE’S a celeb now so he can get away with not working. On this most recent 2-5 road trip, he was allowed to travel separate from the team so HE and RIHANNA COULD PARTY ALL DAY/NIGHT in New York the Monday before the Philly series. Kemp needs a reality check. How about a DEMOTION to New Mexico for a week or two? The season is lost, why not start getting heads straight for next year? Along with the demotion, make him accountable for ALL team rules too, NO exceptions.”

    At the end of the day(?) — s*** DOES stink; dogs catch fleas and that-which-was “once-hidden,” will surely be revealed, as night gives-way-to day ….!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT …!!

  47. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    Sam,and all the other Rihanna haters. Don’t have to watch her performances, listen to her songs, millions of others will. The same ‘model with a mic’ and ‘goat’ jokes are sadly played out and very stale.

    Rihanna is giving her fans what they want. Rated R was her declaration, this next album will be the smash that proves she can shift albums like Beyonce and Gaga.

    Not to mention Rihanna had 7 singles off ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ and sold 7.5 million worldwide. Beyonce had 8-10 singles/videos for Sasha Fierce with multiple rereleases and sold 5.8 million.

  48. lax August 20, 2010

    THE WORLD WANTS A RIHANNA OVERDOSE SHE IS LOVED ALL OVER THE WORLD

    right about now is really great time for rihanna shes in the drivers seat and the rest of you jealous and envious b****** are just mad because rihanna is rich and famous.
    and shes doing her thing shes very “marketable” and a “it ” factor on full force. rihanna is raising caine, and don’t give a dam a about what jealous and mad b****** are talking about!

  51. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 20, 2010

    I like how these raggedy ass stans like to bring up Beyonce and say Rih’s gonna ‘slay’ her when Beyonce hasn’t released an album in two years. Yet Rihanna has to TRY and ‘slay’ her by releasing TWO albums within a year. HA! Loves it!

    The only thing you fools can say Rih slays in is singles, because that’s the ONLY thing she has on B’. That’s the reason she’s releasing another album, she gotta get as many singles out as she can, so she can keep her overrated title of being a singles artist! Good job, Rih, you are officially known as a the Queen of ‘singles’, while B’ is now known as the ‘Queen of Pop.’ Hmmm, that sounds like something you Rih stans would get mad about. Ask me do I care? *sips tea*

  52. lax August 20, 2010

    shes rich ,s***, beautiful, talented, and right about now the world can’t stop talking about rihanna,,,, the name rihanna makes people light up all over the world. and to add to all of the excitement is the fact that people are paying close attention to how others are treating rihanna and those who are in a place where they can do something nice for rihanna they will be doing it in a big way. so stay green with envy it looks great on you.

  53. Jessica August 20, 2010

    YESSSSSS Can’t Wait. I already got my 4 $25 dollar Itune cards just for this Album!! Rihanna Fans let’s make it happen! 🙂 Haters can Stay Mad! I LOVE IT Lol

  55. lax August 20, 2010

    @ team weezy you shut the fuke up, rihanna is dropping a new album because she wants to. and its might funny how your sh=t talking ass always makes for certain to try and get you some licks in on rihanna, b**** you can not stop rihanna no matter what you do are say b****. you don’t see me calling no other b****** name to compare to rihanna because
    you know what rihanna is a bass b and she is doing her thing and on all of the so called big girls level learn how to read b****. they often time don’t give her credit for her hard work but they will , you watch and see b**** , just because a group of crack pipe babies says she can’t do this are that does not make your b**** ass right.you jealous b****** works harder than rihanna , beyonce, britney,taylor,katy,gaga them all put together work. and i say keep working you jealous ass b******.

  56. lax August 20, 2010

    @ jessica hey ther i always love reading you, its been sometime , we used to visit ybf at the same time you are a great person.

  57. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    What’s with the Chris Brown fans STILL hating on Rihanna? Its been over a year since Feb 8th, 2009. And nearly a year since Rihanna’s 20/20 interview. LET S*** GO! Stop trying to say “Te Amo” is a flop when it was never released in the US. Stop trying to say Rockstar 101 is a flop when its higher than “Deuces” on iTunes.

    @Team Weezy Why is your pressed ass here? Please tell me how Rihanna’s c*** tastes. I see you faithfully in every Rihanna post, so I’m assuming your a fan. How many copies of Rated R did u get hun? Probably more copies than Graffiti sold in the 1st week.

  58. kody August 20, 2010

    @lax dont ged mad at weezy for telling the truth listen up rihanna career is down the drains okay

  59. TEE August 20, 2010

    I am Sasha Fierce sold over 6.5 million copies, and she did not promote her album as much as Rihanna’s record label did with her last two albums. Yes Beyonce did talk shows, but Rihanna, did free concerts, talk shows, American Idol, etc, and her album did not even sell that well. Still not even platinum in the US after nine months, and haven’t even sold 3 million WW. As a singles artist she has released four albums, only one being successful, after it was released how many times? Where is Rated R right now on the charts, in the eighties. You have artist like Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Alicia Keys, and Adam Lambert who released their albums around the same time as Rihanna, and their still in the top 40’s so I would like to know how is Rihanna reigning and who is she reigning over. Don’t forget her tour isn’t doing that well.

  60. 2bad2bme August 20, 2010

    IF RIHANNA IS SOOOO HORRIBLE AND S***….WHY THE HELL ROLLING STONE GIVE HER 4 STARS ON HER LAST ALBUM RATED R HATIN ASS SAM

  63. lax August 20, 2010

    @ xyz, you have just got to be a professor,,,, because you really spend a lot of time sigfiying, and readin palms about rihanna and (xyz) that is just your opinion , just your opinion and we all have opinions and we all know that rihanna does not register on the rictor scale with you and XYZ thats a good thing, because you are the best at helping me and others who love rihanna keep her name out there for people to see and read about.
    no matter if its negative are positive the mention of her name makes puppies go into a tail spin chasing their own tails LMAO,,,,HOWEVER XYZ DO KEEP IT UP I LOVE READING YOUR SHERLOCK HOMLES ANALYSIS!!!!

    @Lax = Bodacious = Hardcastle

    LMAOOOO! You sound mad, sweetheart! You only proved me right when I said: “Hmmm, that sounds like something you Rih stans would get mad about. Ask me do I care? *sips tea*”

    I freaking LOVE it!

    And honey I was obviously not referring to you, I was referring to your fellow mentally challenged friends bringing up Beyonce in this post. But like in true retarded fashion, your dumbass telling me to learn how to read, when you can’t even spell or structure a sentence correctly with your numerous run-on sentences! Baby, try again. K? 🙂

  67. That Cranberry Sauce August 20, 2010

    Rolling Stone is a joke, FYI. Any REAL musician (notice I said musician, not a f****** Pop or R&B ‘singer’) will tell you that. Please.

    LMAOOOO! Yep, you are another one who’s upset, huh? Like I said I knew it was gonna get you guys boiling, and I’m loving it! And THEN you bring up CB? YAASSSSSSSSSS! Child, this is too easy!

    But I actually did buy Rated R and I liked it FYI. Just because I think she’s talentless doesn’t mean that I am a fan of hers. I just despise her delusional ass stans. I like screwing with ya’ll burned out brains because it’s rather amusing! That’s what this blogging thing is all about, so you can cease with that BS about me being in her posts when that’s what blogs are for, to post your honest opinion, my sweetie. Try again. 🙂

  69. lax August 20, 2010

    GO TO THE ARTIST DISCOGRAPHY AND READ, REMEMBER READING IS FUNDAMENTAL PEOPLE.A BLOG POST CAN NOT AND WILL NOT EVER BE ABLE TO DEFINE RIHANNA, NEVER. SHE IS LOVED BY SMALL PLAIN PEOPLE AND SHE IS LOVED BY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE BIG BUCKS TO SPEND LIKE THE PEOPLE
    WHOS INKED A DEAL WITH HER TO START IN THAT BLOCKBUSTING MOVIE THAT SHE WILL START SHOOTING SHORTLY. NOBODY KNOWS HOW ITS GOING TO END BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT RIHANNA IS ON BOARD AND THAT IS A DIRECT SLAP AND A FIST IN THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT LIKE RIHANNA. THERES A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO LOVES HER SHE SAYS KEEP LYING AND TALKING CRAZY, SHE LOVES ALL OF YOU REGRADLESS EVEN YOU SOULFUL ROSE, XYZ, BLUEKIDD, TIFF YOU ALL ARE SO SPECIAL BECAUSE YOU DO A GREAT JOB OF HELPING TO KEEP RIHANNA UP ON

    They say whatever to sell copies.
    They claimed Jay-Z was the King Of America (lmao)

    queen of pop….They probably paided
    for it to be 4 stars.

    @team weezy why are you giving me so many names ?
    what ever rihanna does is better than you are doing. you are using weezy’s name and we all know that weezy do not act like you . wayne is a nice fellow unlike you find a defensless woman (artist) and pick on them just for the hell of it. weezy would never own you as no team weezy, period.

  77. Trina August 20, 2010

    Sam & Trent are mad at Rihrih cuz’ they’d loooooooooove to date Matt Kemp or Chris Brown !!

  78. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @Tee No Sasha Fierce has sold 5.8 million copies worldwide. Won multiple grammys, performances at EVERY award show u can think of for two years, a collaboration with Gaga (which flopped), and had MORE singles than GGGB and sold less than B’day. Rated R hasn’t even had any promotion since Ellen which was in February. Stop comparing Rated R, which is not nearly as commercial or likeable to the general public, to Sasha Fierce which was made VERY likeable.

    @Team Weezy Nobody’s mad sweetheart. I only brought up Chris Brown since you love to throw shade @ Rihanna when your fave isn’t doing all that well either. Secondly, I could careless if you think she’s talentless. As a strong believer in Jesus Christ as my savior I believe EVERYONE is born in some way or another with a talent. God is not partial. He gives his children different talents, but wouldn’t leave some WITHOUT it. The NY Post, BET, MTV, rolling stone, Billboard, and so forth have all acknowledged her talent so your little opinion out of the thousands that paid to see her live and will see her live matters nothing sweetheart. Have a blessed day and realize that hating on someone you DON’T know is meaningless ^_^.

  79. Soulful Roses August 20, 2010

    @TeamWeezy said everything I wanted to say. What in the world does Beyonce have to do with this post? Some of you stans are so pressed its pathetic. If Rihanna was as great as you stans hyped her up to be, you wouldn’t have to try and downgrade other artist just to put Rihanna in a better light. Makes me wonder why you all stan for her to begin with..SMH

  80. Flubber August 20, 2010

    DefJam milking that b*tch while she’s hot. She might be forgotten very fast if she’s away for a while.

  81. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @BADD “Paid Rolling Stone to give her 4 stars” makes no sense. If this was your precious Gaga and they gave her four stars would you question the authenticity of the review? Don’t be a hypocrite sweetie. Give credit where it was due, and the receipts don’t lie. Rated R was a much better album than that generic dance music gimmick stunt-double you call “The Fame”.

  87. Jacob Hester August 20, 2010

    Um…can I say this? Beyonce and Rihanna are friends…so why do we compare them like they frickin’ hate each other and are trying to ‘slay’ each other.

    Def Jam is a little dumb, IMO, in that if an album underperforms they go right on to the next one (Ne-Yo, RiRi). I think they should try re-releases, EP’s or even mixtapes.

    Anyways, Rihanna had no U.S. attention with Music of the Sun or A Girl Like Me. Those albums went Gold and Platinum but she still wasn’t an A-List star, even though she had two top 3 singles from them. Then, Good Girl Gone Bad took her to the A-List with all its hit singles and moderate sales. Rated R wasn’t a flop, though. Rated R was highly anticapated and sold well for RIHANNA. Rihanna isn’t an albums artist (first week-wise). Music of the Sun went Gold, A Girl Like Me went Platinum, Good Girl Gone Bad went 2x Platinum (near 3x) and Rated R has sold 950,000 copies in the U.S. It will be certified Platinum soon, it’s just that the RIAA is slow with getting albums certified because their are so many more albums to certify.

    And @TEE Rihanna has sold more than Adam Lambert. He’s only sold 700,000 of FYE but she’s sold 950,000 of Rated R. But yes, Alicia Keys has sold 1.3 million of TEOF while Rated R has sold 950,000. But Alicia is more of an album than a single artist too. Lady Gaga has sold 1.2 million copies of The Fame Monster but she’s more of the “it thing” than Rihanna at the moment. But you’re wrong about Ke$ha. Ke$ha has sold 875,000 copies of Animal, 75,000 less than Rated R has. So yes, Alicia and Gaga have outsold her but she’s outsold Ke$ha and Adam.

    Also, Rihanna didn’t give Rated R the promo it needed. “Russian Roulette” was never really performed live or talked about (Def Jam expected that the whole mystery lead single would be enough promo; WRONG) and her website was her only promo really (besides Oprah’s shoutout). Most of her live appearances had to do with the incident. But “Russian Roulette” still did really well and so did “Hard” and “Rude Boy”. The only reason “Te Amo” ‘flopped’ in the U.S. was because it wasn’t even released here (it was a non-U.S. single). “Rockstar 101” was only performed live once and don’t you guys maybe think that she didn’t promote it in order for her to be “gone” for a while to amp up the anticipation for her next record? And “Deuces” hasn’t hit the mainstream chart, while “Rockstar 101” has.

    How could she create a dance-oriented, mainstream album anyway? I mean after what she had been through between GGGB and Rated R, how could she have made a mainstream record? She made a dark, indie-influenced record because (I’m sure) it was what was on her mind. Now, she’s in a happy place and she’s back with the mainstream sound and the GGGB-sequel type album. And these days, some albums don’t sell and some do. Rihanna relies on hit singles and well but not fantastically selling albums.

    The Last Girl on Earth Tour has not been a failure @TEE. On average, Rihanna sells out 90% of each venue. How is that a failure? Just because Gaga’s tour has sold 99% of each venue, doesn’t make 90% even CLOSE to a failure. And Rihanna has broken single records. She’s hit #1 SEVEN times. “SOS”, “Umbrella”, “Take a Bow”, “Disturbia”, “Live Your Life”, “Love the Way You Lie” and “Rude Boy” (featured singles do count towards number of #1’s).

    Rated R – 76/100
    Good Girl Gone Bad – 73/100

    Sasha Fierce – 62/100
    BDay – 70/100
    Crazy In Love -64/100

    Oops..

    8th #1 single in the making. And for the people doubting her it will not be less than a year. Im sure they are not gonna release it before november 23 because that will be dumb seeing that almost everyone is coming out before that. An early December release is best. (My choice Dec. 7th or 14th) and thats a year. So what idf she released her album back to back? She loves her fans and she wants to treat them.

    BTW Good Girl Gone Bad sold way over 8 million copies worldwide. and Sasha Fierce was released like 3 times and only pushed 6.

    Rihanna’s album was never 99cents. It was an MP3 Download for $3.99 for Black-Friday just like Jay-Z, Gaga’s, etc. Album and Amazon offered $3 off on any product that week. Besides, you’d have to use a credit/debit card to use amazon and none of you teenagers have either.

  111. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @MARQUIS If it was 99-cents as you say for that week, and it sold 181,000 copies so how would that make it nearly Platinum? If it was selling for 99cents and only sold 181K why would the album sell MORE at regular price. And being a Ciara stan you shouldn’t be worried about anyone else’s sales when Fantasy Ride has scanned 193,000 copies to DATE.

    @Blasian Stop trying to turn this into aBeyonce vs. Rihanna. They aren’t fighting each other, arguing, trying to compete with one another, so why are you? Just for the record Good Girl Gone Bad sold WAY less than both B’Day and Sasha Fierce first week and eventually outsold BOTH albums. Its about LONGEVITY. Not first week numbers r*****.

  112. lax August 20, 2010

    as hard as time are now it would be fine if she sold them for 25cent as long as they are selling. theres some people whos not selling nothing times are hard and the music industry is not imune from slow sales etc. whats good is the ten million singles that she has sold and still counting fron rated r, thats very impressive.

  113. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @KODY A fact is not an excuse sweetie. Take away airplay from Deuces and set it to zero like Rockstar and it wouldn’t even be top 50. Rockstar 101 is top 30 on iTunes with no video airplay or radio airplay. The buying PUBLIC has spoken which song they favor more. And Rockstar 101 is winning by a long shot.

    @BADD Chart positions don’t equal great music. In fact majority of the time generic music SELLS more than non-commercial art like Janelle Monae. Rated R and the fame are two different kind of albums so comparing their respective chart positions would only prove that one is outselling the other, not that is necessarily the better disc.

  117. Chick Boom August 20, 2010

    In the same way that Rihanna stans think she is the best thing since cooked crack, Beyonce stans think she is great too, but we have some credible co-signers:

    Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Prince, Kanye West, Teena Marie, Donna Summer, Debbie Allen, Ellen DeGeneres, Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackmann, Mike Meyers, Dionne Warrick, Grace Slick, Patti Labelle, Annie Lennox, Bono, The Obama’s, Toni Braxton, etc.

    Even Ted Nugent is a damn fan.

    Stevie Wonder even went to Beyonce’s show. And he just doesn’t leave his house for any random broad.

    Beyonce stans may be delusional but we have legends, reviews, AND numbers to support our delusions.

    Rihanna greatness exists mainly in single numbers and in the minds of the tweens and power bottoms who call themselves her stans. The nicest reviews admit that she is the LEAST entertaining aspect of her own show.

    At the end of the day it’s about personal taste. I can post reviews from Beyonce’s concerts and compare them to Rihanna’s and it really wouldn’t matter. As Beyonce’s husband (and Rihanna’s mentor) said “Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t.” And clearly live performances are not that important to a Rihanna fan, so I can post a million positive Beyonce reviews and it won’t hold any weight. At the end of the day
    numbers are what’s always going to be true deciding factor, and Rihanna has strong numbers on her side.

    Which is not to say that Beyonce doesn’t care about numbers. It’s just that Rihanna and Beyonce seem to have different philosophies on how to market themselves to the public.

    Beyonce has let it known that she wants to be an icon, and she has certainly earned the title. Her success has come after years of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears under her belt, grinding it out with Destiny’s Child for 15 years, losing Star Search, and working tirelessly by perfoming on any and every stage just to get a record deal.

    Rihanna, on the other hand, appeared in one pageant/talent show pageant before getting a record deal.

    So why does Rihanna at times seem more appealing?

    To steal a quote from Family Guy, Beyonce “insists upon herself.” She’s GOING to be an icon whether you like or not. And you WILL like her and you WILL respect her and you WILL accept her greatness, and you WILL buy the deluxe DVD edition, and the 2 movies, and the world tour, and whatever products she’s endorsing this week.

    Rihanna, on the other hand could care less about being an icon. She just seems to breeze effortlessly from style to style like a little girl playing dress-up.

    Beyonce is determined to go down in the history books.

    Rihanna’s attitude toward her career seems to be “Sure, why not?”

    “So Rihanna, you wanna go to America and record an album?

    “Sure, why not?”

    “Hey I got this song called “Umbrella” Mary didn’t want it and Britney didn’t want it. You wanna record it?

    “Sure, why not?”

    You wanna cut all your hair off?

    “Sure, why not?”

    “You wanna wear this G-string on stage with 2 stickers on your n******?

    “Sure, why not?”

  118. Kyle August 20, 2010

    Although I believe she’s sometimes far too overrated, I am a fan of her and her music. I think this site bashes her a bit too much, but I do agree that her live performances are embarrassing. Aside from that, I would be ready for another Rihanna album. Why blame her? She’s young and she already has a whopping 7 #1 hits on the Hot 100. She might as well keep them on coming while she’s still relevant.

    Hmmmm, sooo if Rihanna is doing so well, then why do you have to bring up CB to defend her? Shouldn’t her success/accomplishments speak for themselves? There should be no need to compare her to CB if she doing so good and he isn’t, right?

    And yes IMO she’s talentless or at least lacks tremendous talent. She can’t sing, dance, or perform. You can preach about God giving talent all day, but that won’t change my opinion, sweetie. And just like it’s my opinion, it’s BET, MTV, Rolling stone, Billboard, and NY post opinions as well. Their opinions are NOT any more or less than the consumer because they are human just like everyone else. Sorry. So all of that don’t mean s***.

    “Have a blessed day and realize that hating on someone you DON’T know is meaningless.” WTF??? First off, PLEASE stop referring to someone posting their opinions as ‘hating.’ GEEZ! Me stating an opinion is just that, an OPINION, regardless if it’s negative or positive. Damn, people still continue to use that word in the wrong context. Secondly, if I DON’T know her than neither does anyone else including you and the rest of these deluded stans. Therefore, posting admiration/like and posting comments defending someone you DON’T know is meaningless as well, no? 😉

    @ SMMFGDH:

    If Rolling Stone can give the likes of the Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber three and four stars on their albums, then you better believe that those reviews are paid for. Same with practically every concert review saying Rihanna is a great singer and performer, when we all damn well know that she is neither, those reviews are paid for by her label. The few reviews that tell the truth aren’t on Def Jam’s payroll.

    And I gotta love how the Riyodel stans complain about Beyoncé stans bring up Rihanna first and claim it’s because they’re threatened by her, but Riyodel stans are the ones throwing out Bey’s name at every turn, even when she has nothing to do with the subject. You guys are the ones who are pressed, and rightfully so. Your girl is going in no direction other than down, and you know it. You try to pretend that it doesn’t bother you, but it does. In your own words, “stay mad!”

    BTW, I wish Tiff would show up, she would turn this thread into real comedy gold by baiting the Riyodel stans.

  130. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @Team Weezy No one used Chris Brown’s tremendous failures to defend Rihanna’s success. I just pointed out trying to down Rihanna constantly when your fave isn’t doing so hot either makes absolutely no sense, is redudant, and you spend more time hating on Rihanna than supporting Chris Brown. “Hating”= “she has no talent.” Again like I said, God is not partial, everyone has some kind of talent. YOU state your opinions as facts = “She can’t sing, dance, or perform fa.” Just because you think that way doesn’t mean the thousands of people that go see her live don’t. At the end of the day the opinion Billboard, NY Post, and so forth get way more attention and respect than your ignorant comments on That Prune Juice.

    Lastly, I’ve met Rihanna several times, had a Meet&Greet, been to her concert and seen her live for myself. Can u say the same for Chris Brown? No. I’m defending her because since I’ve personally met her I feel the blatant hate she gets is unwarranted and that is MY right.

    So sweetie I really hope you get yourself together and realize arguing me down with your opinion that means next to nothing to her fans or her is a waste of your time. You are dismissed, and don’t waste time replying since you’ll be ignored like the ignorant shadow you are 🙂

  139. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @True Blue For one Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers have never received a four star album from Rolling Stone. Secondly, you can’t accept the fact that other people think Rihanna can perform and sing so you resort to the redudant “payed for” tactic. It doesn’t fly with me sweetie. I work in the music industry, have been to her concert, and know plenty of people that would agree with exactly with what the review said. At the end of the day, Rihanna just sold out 80% of her tickets for her Australian tour from pre-sales alone, so if she really can’t perform or sing like you say why are so many people going to see her live?

    @BADD No sweetie its a fact that generic music is more successful than music with substance. When was the last time a ballad on the level of “Halo” by Beyonce went #1 on the Hot 100 and sold 5 million copies like “TiK ToK”? I never compared The Fame to Rated R. I said they are incomparable since they are two different kinds of sounds so go back and reread before you say something. You’re embarassing yourself sweetheart.

  144. True Blue August 20, 2010

    @ SMMFGDH:

    Saying someone has no talent= hating? Really? So having any opinion that is not positive is hating? Of course a delusional stan would think that way, because you people think that giving someone undue praise is the way to go. What about when fans criticize the very people they stan for, is that hating too? Hating is saying things that are irrelevant to the subject. Calling Rihanna a ho, b****, s***, any insult that has no bearing on her talent (or lack of rather) or her music is hating. Saying she can’t sing or her music sucks isn’t hating, it’s called having an opinion, dummy. Know the difference. Besides, you got a lot of nerve accusing other people of hating when you guys comment on Gaga posts and call her a t***** w****, a coke w****, all sorts of names that have no bearing on her talent and music.

  146. SMMFGDH August 20, 2010

    @BADD No it is not a fact. Lady Gaga is the most generic artist out there right now. Rihanna is far from irrelevant hun, the girl does have the #1 Ringtone, Radio, Hot 100, and Digital song not only in America but the world as well.

  147. Tha Phoenix August 20, 2010

    To the person above who said IASF has only sold 5.6 mill ww, actually it’s shipped 7 mill, but sold 6.89 mill copies.

    Anyway, I wanted Rih to take a break. DJ have her working none stop and she needs to relax for a bit. Still, I’m looking forward to the new record.

    @SMMFGDH

    LMAOOOOOO! I LOVE THIS! Child, you are just as brainless as the rest of your fellow mentally challenged Rihanna stans!

    Yes, you did use CB as means to defend Rihanna by thinking that he somehow is more to me than just my entertainment. Unlike you, I don’t brag about CB or think that a person is pressed because they don’t like him.

    Again ‘hating’ is not me stating that she has no talent or that she can’t sing, dance, or perform. Do you understand that pretty much 98% of what’s posted is opinion? Why must I state ‘I think’ or ‘IMO’ before/after every one of my statements. It should be understood, but I guess you lack comprehension.

    And I’m not sure if Billboard, Ny post, Rolling stone, etc get more attention than my opinion, considering you reply to them and attempt to prove me wrong. Again I say this is a blog, so NO ONE including you, don’t get as much attention as those critics, so it’s not just mine. Let’s use some common sense, hun. This attempt of trying to prove that someone’s opinion on a blog doesn’t matter is a major fail, sweetheart.

    And LMAO @ you meeting her at a meet & greet like that’s you actually KNOWING her! That ish is funny as f*ck! LMAOOOO! Sorry to break it to you but meeting someone a few times does not mean you know that person!

    And just like it’s YOUR right to defend her, it’s MY right to post my dislike for her as well, no?

    BTW: I like that failed attempt of name calling at the end. I guess google couldn’t provide you with anything funnier, huh? You might wanna try again, boo boo. 😉 *sips more tea*

  149. Badd August 20, 2010

    Nobody believed any of Rihanna’s bullshizz on Rated R.
    Which is why it didn’t do well.
    None of her music had substance or actually meant something
    because HELLO Rihanna doesn’t write her own music
    & she wouldn’t know if they had her singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
    She wanted to be “hard” & a “rockstar” & it was b*******.
    She went edgy with GGGB & it worked & got her noticed.
    So she thought she wld push it further & become edgier.
    But nobody believed her & became tired of her just that fast
    because she was too overexposed & wouldn’t stop using
    CB…..that in itself is a #FAIL.
    Rihanna has become a #FAIL.
    & all of her stan #FAIL.

    Sure, Rihanna would sell out concerts in some places, after all her delusional stans are what sustain her! Justin Bieber sells out concerts, too! Lots of professional reviews praise his “singing” as well! That doesn’t mean that he’s good!

    Don’t bring up other ppl to make you fav look good.

    I like a lot of Rih’s music but she will never top her latest effort, it was fresh & complete & had next to no fillers, a cpl songs were just OK but most were good & 3 of which were great(RR, Rude Boy, Fire Bomb). Rated R made me respect rihanna more for taking risk & evolving musically. She will NEVER top that, this LP wont be going #1, & wont sell any better. Shes never been a big seller, Only sold 5 mill in the US with 4 albums & GGGB was a re-release & technically its 2 different sells figures (4-5 Mill). Mostly just Hype with her. Say whatyou want about her Lack Of Talent But atleast shell be racking up more hits… 🙂

    @TRUE BLUE Rihanna was the original writer of Run This Town, wrote her parts on Live Your Life and her duet with Shontelle. She also has been writing since her first album Music of the Sun all the way to now on Rated R.

    @BADD
    Gaga topping Rihanna in everything. Yet Rihanna still has more singles sold, more critical acclaim, more #1 hits, more top ten hits, and so forth. Megan Fox and the other guy were chosen to act out the video to avoid controversy, which the director stated himself. If anybody could’ve sang the chorus then why did Eminem go out of his way and reach out to Rihanna when he could’ve had “anybody” do the song. If anybody has failed its you, saying Rihanna is irrelevant when she’s featured on the #1 song in the world right now, saying she doesn’t write her music when she has a GRAMMY for her writing, and lastly and most importantly saying Gaga has substance. SAT DOWN!

    And you say Beyonce only sold 11 million in the states, but Rihanna only sold 5 million in states and she has FOUR albums unlike Bey who has THREE albums. Therefore, Beyonce sold over DOUBLE the amount that Rihanna has with one less album. *sips tea*

  187. boo hoo hoo August 20, 2010

    so rated r is not successful because rihanna is putting out an album 9 months later. Isn’t that what lady gaga did. Isn’t usher and Trey songz doing that as well. But of course when it comes to rihanna its something else. Well if I were an artist, give me rated r numbers anyday, because i would just kill to be selling at platinum status all across the globe. Give me rated r success anyday. Dammit!!

  188. Robier August 20, 2010

    GGGB PART DEUX

  189. boo hoo hoo August 20, 2010

    but beyonce been in the game 12 years and was in a group, so she was already well known the world over. so technically, bey had more than three albums, if you want to count the ones from destiny’s child. So what if rihanna has four albums, she is still making good music and increasing her net worth with each album she put out. Isn’t that the point of being an artist. To build your album catalog. Better to have four albums out, than be a one hit wonder with one song, or album then no one ever hears from you again. So rihanna could keep churning them out left right and center, because I know I will be getting great music, and rihanna would be adding hits to her already impressive list of #1’s. Get it ri ri.

  191. boo hoo hoo August 20, 2010

    Rihanna has indeed written on rated r. Also if you look at some old footage of rihanna when she just got signed to def jam, she was writing then as well. So not because rihanna is not one of those people who like to keep broadcasting Oh I’m writing this or I’ve written this, like Gaga who can’t keep her mouth shut about her writing, don’t mean she hasn’t or isn’t contributing to the writing of her music. It seems like the in thing nowadays is to brag and keep bringing up writing abilities, because it seems like that’s the only way to get people to be impressed with an artist. So everyone suddenly is being very verbal about their writing, when years ago, people weren’t always bringing it up in every interview. But rihanna writes, and has always written on her albums go check the credits and see.

    BEYONCE BEYOND DESTINY’S CHILD

    Hi Gary,

    I was wondering if you could give me the total album and singles sales for Beyonce and Destiny’s Child. As a solo artist, has she outperformed her work with the group?

    Thanks,

    Adonis Torrence
    Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Hi Adonis,

    Let’s compare the careers of Destiny’s Child and Beyonce solo a few different ways, based on SoundScan and Billboard chart data:

    Album sales:
    16,975,000, Destiny’s Child
    11,277,000, Beyonce

    Physical singles sales:
    4,176,000, Destiny’s Child
    475,000, Beyonce

    Digital songs sales:
    23,376,000, Beyonce
    4,353,000, Destiny’s Child

    Hot 100 No. 1s:
    5, Beyonce
    4, Destiny’s Child

    Hot 100 top 10s:
    14, Beyonce
    10, Destiny’s Child

    Destiny’s Child has sold more albums and physical singles. Since the launch of Beyonce’s solo career coincided with the advent of the digital era, however, she clearly leads in songs downloaded. She has also outshined Destiny’s Child in terms of Hot 100 No. 1s and top 10s.

    While there may be no definitive way to confirm that Beyonce’s solo career has been more successful than her run with Destiny’s Child, it’s unquestionable that since the group arrived in 1997, Beyonce has grown into a multi-media superstar, encompassing acting and fashion in addition to music. In December, she earned the esteemed honor of Billboard’s Female Artist of the Decade for the 2000s.

    GOOD GIRL NOT GONE TO NO. 1

    Dear Gary,

    Thank you for all your insights every week!

    My question is regarding Rihanna. Even though she has scored seven No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, she hasn’t yet reached the summit of the Billboard 200 with any of her albums. Has any artist scored as many Hot 100 No. 1s without topping the Billboard 200?

    Thank you,

    Juan Croussett
    Tampa, Florida

    Hi Juan,

    Thanks! To answer your question about Rihanna, who reaches the Hot 100 pinnacle this week, let’s look at all 18 artists who’ve collected at least seven Hot 100 No. 1 songs and how many No. 1 albums they’ve also tallied on the Billboard 200:

    Hot 100 No. 1s, Artist, Billboard 200 No. 1s
    20, the Beatles, 19
    18, Mariah Carey, 6
    13, Michael Jackson, 6
    12, Madonna, 7
    12, the Supremes, 3
    11, Whitney Houston, 4
    10, Janet Jackson, 6
    10, Stevie Wonder, 3
    9, Bee Gees, 2 (not including the “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack)
    9, Elton John, 7
    9, Paul McCartney, 7
    9, Usher, 3
    8, George Michael, 1
    8, the Rolling Stones, 9
    7, Phil Collins, 2
    7, Elvis Presley (*career predates the Hot 100’s Aug. 4, 1958, launch), 10
    7, Rihanna, 0
    7, Frankie Valli, 0

    Thus, Rihanna joins Frankie Valli as the only artists with at least seven Hot 100 No. 1s but no toppers on the Billboard 200. In eight visits as a solo artist, Valli peaked as high as No. 34 with his first Billboard 200 entry, “Frankie Valli-Solo,” in 1967. As lead singer of the 4 Seasons, Valli and the group twice reached a highpoint of No. 6 on the Billboard 200.

    As for her album discography, here is a recap of Rihanna’s Billboard 200 chart history and sales totals, according to Nielsen SoundScan:

    Billboard 200 Peak Position, Title, Sales To-Date, Release Year
    No. 10, “Music of the Sun,” 593,000, 2005
    No. 5, “A Girl Like Me,” 1,330,000, 2006
    No. 2, “Good Girl Gone Bad,” 2,616,000, 2007
    No. 106, “Good Girl Gone Bad: the Remixes,” 49,000, 2009
    No. 4, “Rated R,” 943,000, 2009
    No. 158, “Rated R: Remixed,” 13,000, 2010

    All albums combined, Rihanna has sold 5,563,000 units in the U.S., according to SoundScan.

    @badd and your point of letting me know that everyone else except trey songz was a hit was for what reason? I have always known Rated R was a hit, may not be to you, but definitely to me, so IDK what the problem is with her releasing new music. IF everyone else can do it so can rihanna. Okay and so what if gaga released a year later is it that much different from 9 months? And btw rihanna’s album don’t even have a release date as yet, so isn’t it premature to say she is releasing an album 9 months later? when the date of the release hasn’t even been announced or confirmed.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    and the way you are constantly trying to conteract everthing I say in regards to rihanna’s SUCCESS, lets me know that the truth is finally sinking in for you that rihanna is a bad bish, a top stunner, hit maker, never to be stopped, constantly coming out on top when everyone else wants her to fail. If she wan’t all of that, me bigging her up would not be a problem to you. People only get upset when someone else is getting too much shine if they feel threatned. I see my girl got you shook. Anyway carry on with your constant bashing of rihanna, its your norm, so what’s new.

    SEVEN NUMBER ONES By the time this era is finished she will have TEN!

    *Sips Orange juice watches the haters get mad the fact that rihanna is not leaving*

  211. Badd August 20, 2010

    Beyonce’s the only artist that’s actually been out & successful that entire decade.
    Britney….was going through some serious DRAMA for most of it.
    Rihanna wasn’t EVEN in the running.
    & You already explained GaGa’s situation.

  212. boo hoo hoo August 20, 2010

    Bey only has 3 Albums, count em, THREE!! RihGoatgoat has 4 & didnt sell haklf what Bey sold. Bey has been in the game 13 years &^ counting & has sold over 70 Million albums WORLDWIDE!! & over 130 Million records sold!! & has FAR MORE HITS under her Belt than Rihgoata. Yes Good H** gone Bad outsold B’day but thats all she outsold. IASF WASNT re-released & sold nearly 7 Million!! ~Thats MASSIVE. 6 Grammys in ONE Night!! a over 100 Million grossed tour!!

    Beyonce = QUEEN OF MUSIC!! >>>>

    Rihgoata would be lucky if the Queen let her lick the dirt off her Feet!!

    When Rihgoata gon dew it??
    _________________________________________________________________

    wow what an impressive resume, but it still took her 13 YEars to amass all of this. Rihanna is making her way up faster in only 5 years. When she gets to thirteen, I bet her resume will be just as impressive. After all it is one heck of a resume for a person who has only been in the game 5 years and at the tender age of 22. Rihanna has youth on her side, so she got time to get even bigger than she is right now.

  213. boo hoo hoo August 20, 2010

    @Jessica

    Girl, just STOP! You sound really delusional. You’re referring to Beyonce’s success/sales as a SOLO artist but you also refer to her number of years in the game as a solo artist AND as a group member? WTF? Make up yo’ mind! If you wanna compare her sales as a solo artist to Rihanna’s sales, then she’s only been SOLO for 7 years!

    And how can Rihanna be at Bey’s level when she hasn’t sold more than Beyonce? So you can STAY MAD!

  217. Yellow Gorillah August 20, 2010

    I ALSO HOPE BEYONCE COMES OUT WITH A NEW ALBUM

    RIHANNA VS BEYONCE VS GAGA 2011 is going to be a BATTLE ZONE ,,we gone see who really runs the charts (Last time I checked Rihanna is winning)

    Beyonce has been in the game for DECADES this b**** still be looking the same still be singing the same still be dancing the same still be bringing out the same songs WTF she is sooop boring even gaga is more intresting you need to change it up a lil

    AND DONT YOU THINK IF RIHANNA WAS IN A GIRL GROUP SHE WOULD BE MORE SUCCEFULL., Beyonce has been growing her fan base since the god dame 90’s Rihanna has been in the came for 5 year FIVE yall need to give her credi

    STOP HATING because NOTHING you say will make us change our mind RIHANNA IS TALENTED BEAUTIFUL No matter what none of you say

    why is evryone mad looool give it up You will not make us change our minds we still gone buy the god dame album we sill gone get her #10 number ones

    IF YOUR FAV WAS SOOOOOO AMAZING AND IF YOU GUYS WHERE REAL FANS YOUR FAV WILL NOT HAVE #5 number ones but the WORLD has spoken Rihanna makes HIT’S dont lie!

    all you did was prove how much of a HELP destiny’s child was to beyonces successful career. Destiny’s child was her launching pad. Rihanna did it all Solo, alone a little unknown girl from the islands.

    @ Yellow.:
    How is Rihanna winning.
    Just with 7 number one’s ??
    Two of which were not hers.
    Last time I checked Rihanna was bordering irrelevancy.

  222. True Blue August 20, 2010

    @ Cry Baby:

    No, she did it by being an attractive yet talentless puppet that looks good in clothes, so Def Jam cleaned her up real well, hired some hot producers, and voila.

    Beyoncé worked her tail off for years, and got to where she is and LASTED THIS long with talent.

    Rihanna never had a #1 album, has never broken any real records. All she has on her competitors is #1 singles, nothing more. She cannot even begin to approach Beyoncé’s level of success. And it doesn’t matter if Beyoncé had Destiny’s Child as her launching pad. Didn’t John Lennon have The Beatles as his launching pad? Didn’t Michael Jackson have The Jackson Five as his launching pad? So are you saying because Rihanna has been solo all the way her success means more than John and Michael’s?

    GIRL BOOOM! I have nothing to say to you. Im not even going to turn this into a Gaga vs Rihanna post. NEEEEXT!

  226. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    rihanna has had #1 albums. A girl like me was #1 in canada and gggb went to #1 in a 10 european countries. And to say that rihanna is not a hard worker is a straight up lie. This girl works hard, stays on her grind, is always hustling. If she wasn’t working so hard, why are you guys saying she should take a break. To try to downplay her accomplishments by chalking it up to looks and dressing says that you have taken notice of her beauty and fashionable style. I know she is a beauty, but that isn’t all there is to it, there are many beautiful girls in the business that are tanking and not making it. So say what you want, but rihanna is a success because of her work ethic which is to be commended for someone so young. She works for what she has.

  227. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    @ trueblue last yes rihanna’s success is to be admired because she had to work harder at getting where she was on her own. She didn’t have a group to help get her out there, so yes John Lennon and Michael Jackson did benefit from the notoriety of their famous groups before making it big, because had they had to come out from scratch to make it, it would have been a rougher journey.

  228. Yellow Gorillah August 21, 2010

    LOOOOOL

    “Beyonce Worked her ASS OFF” HAHAHHAHAHA

    Sorry Last time I checked MATTHEW KNOWLES WORKED HIS ASS OFF
    FROM Pushing beyonce into dacing and singing ALL DAT LONG (CHILD LABOUR more like) He PUSHED beyonce sooo much that the b**** did not even get to go school to learn how to speak HAVE YOU SEEN BEYONCE IN A INTERVIEW LOOOOOOOOL

    Stop with all this b******* Rihanna came from a small island with no money in the bank no DAD TO PAY FOR HER ACHIVMENTS please MOOOVEE ON I dont want to hear some next lie about how beyonce struggled B**** dont know what it means to struggle..

    This is the same B**** who DISSED out the JACKSON she is such a HYPOCRITE! please No then you see her on BET doing the MJ Tribute Janet should Snatch her weave for that.. NEEEXT >>>>>>>>>>

  232. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^^ No but, Beyoncé’s man had to provide everything for Ri-Ri, didn’t he? The girl got spotted on a beach looking real attractive by some producers, and it’s her image that’s provided for her success ever since. Critics AND musical peers (like Prince, Tina Turner, MJ himself) praise Beyoncé’s talent. I don’t hear any of that for Riyodel, only praise for her music (which she DOES NOT write) and her sense of style, nothing about her singing or dancing.

  233. Badd August 21, 2010

    @ Yellow.:
    Ppl being on a Rihanna post doesn’t say anything.

    You Stupid B****!!You always were delusional ( I actually think you might be retarded). Beyonce has been switching it up with every album since DC so YOU FAIL. B’day is NOTHING like DIL & IAM is NOTHING like B’day. IAM is just as much of a risk as Rated R was. I I were a Boy was Bey’s most original Video to date, Bey’s a Classic Talent. Shes an ICON, Something that RihGoata could NEVER be even with 20 #1s… 16 Grammys, 9 #1s, MAD?? 🙁

    Not true at all, lots of rihanna’s peers like her music. Mary J blige, Kanye, Jayz, beyonce, keri hilson, neyo, michele from destiny child, kelli rowland, Katy perry have all said they like rihanna’s music, so your reaching and not quite getting it dear.

  238. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^^ Liking someone’s music and saying they got talent are two different things.

    I liked GGGB. Does that mean I also think Rihanna has talent? NO!

  239. Yellow Gorillah August 21, 2010

    As a TRUE rihanna fan I think that After this album Rihanna needs to take a SEAT! Or she will become too mcuh and people will ge tierd of her BUt I think That rihanna is the only person who can release album back to back and make it not boring as EACH of her album have all had a diffrent sound that is what set’s her apart. But I think ater this era she should take a break and go into movies and to create her clothing Line dammme when her clothing line comes out SHE IS GOING TO SHUT IT DOWN looool anyways “WHERE THEM GIRLS TALKING TRASH WHERE THEM GIRLS TALKING TRASH WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT”

    5 years in the game b****** ..Love how rihanna gets haters MAD!

    _____________________________________________________________

    But at least rihanna’s talent doesn’t include stealing other peoples writings and songs and passing it off as her own. So if they want to praise stealing talent let them go ahead, rihanna can do without that.

  242. Badd August 21, 2010

    Kanye is in the same “camp” as her.
    & is riding Jay-Z’s d*** like the rest so of course
    he would say that.
    Kanye has also said Nicki would be #2 rapper.
    & that Swizz Beatz was the great producers..
    do i even need to say LMAOO ??
    Beyonce DOES NOT…i repeat DOES NOT even like RIhanna.
    She puts up with her for the cameras.
    Keri who ?
    Neyo……….DEAD.
    Michelle…did ppl even know her when she was still in the group ??
    Kelly Rowland….well I could see that…..she’s knows all about flopping
    where’s commander, grown woman, & rose-colored glasses ??
    Katy Perry & Rihanna are best friends…

    Rihanna’s talent is as evident as Xtina’s career.

  244. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    @ true blue well they never told you they don’t like her talent did they. You are trying to put words in their mouths, and for all you know, rihanna’s peers may very well consider her talented, and i have heard many saying she’s talented. Didn’t Bono, Kesha, slash all call her talented before? So to each his own. Lets just put it this way rihanna is where she is today because people consider her to be talented and support her, so not because you don’t mean everyone sees it your way.

  245. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ CryBaby:

    Her voice isn’t “stolen”, her dancing ability isn’t “stolen”, her stage presence isn’t “stolen”.

    I wish Riyodel could steal at least one of them, though.

  246. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @S***

    Beyonce has been switching it Up looooooooooooool
    Hmmmmmmmmmm HOW please explain..

    Beyonce has always been putting out the same sound since early 00’s
    She tried to switch i up in I,,AM by creating this fake persona that stops people from thinking she is a h**..”When I pop my P**** it is not me it is SASHA” loooool B**** PLEASE SHE JUST CANT HELP BUT LIE…She has nothing new to bring to the table that is why I never really get excited when she brings out a new album because THEY ALL SOUND THE SAME! so BOOM POW! I think a True artist should EXPERIMENT iwth diffrent sounds. B**** is still talanted doe but it is now just getting boring when you got people like rihanna and gaga who Always given us something new =/ NEEEEEEEEXTTT>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  248. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    @ badd if this was a case in court you would lose . you are SPECULATING that beyonce does not like rihanna, You don’t know this as a fact, so your dismissed. People only work with people they think are talented, so if Eminem, Ti. Jeezy, etc didn’t think she was talented, they wouldn’t have asked her to be on their record period. After all they know her TALENT lies in making great music and bringing the hits. I rather have this as a talent thatn p**** popping and stealing music, (bey) and dressing like a dead at the morgue , or a circus freak show. (gaga) so leave rihanna alone she’s just fine.

  249. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    Her voice isn’t “stolen”, her dancing ability isn’t “stolen”, her stage presence isn’t “stolen”.

    _____________________________________________________________________

    No it was just paid for over the years by the constant amount of lessons in stage performance by her dad and mom who were grooming her from puberty to be a star. This was something that family was hungry for, and they paid for it. Vocal coaching, dance classes, stage performance classes. All paid for, and so of course she would be the force she is today because of all that preparation. AND look to think that rihanna who had none of that, is still being mentioned in the same breath as someone who was groomed to be a star from birth. so you guys can’t fault rihanna, because growing up on her little island she didn’t have access to all those resources so what you see with ri ri is raw undiluted not made for star s***.

  250. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    she came by it naturally.

  251. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ Cry Baby:

    No sweetie, that’s called polishing your talent. But if you don’t have any natural talent to begin with, then no amount of training could ever give it to you. And Rihanna has none of it, so fail right there. You might as well criticize classical musicians because they had years if training before they went on to become professionals, you’re basically saying that Rihanna is more credible than them as an artist because she has no musical training (as though that’s something to brag about in her case).

  252. True Blue August 21, 2010

    * years OF training.

  253. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    @ true blue are you serious? Talent can be taught. You don’t have to have natural dancing ability, it can be taught to you, you don’t have to know to play and instrument it can be taught to you. You don’t have to be the best singer, it can be taught to you and your voice can be trained. So stop with that foolishness. Not all talent comes naturally sweetie.

  254. Badd August 21, 2010

  256. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    i’m just saying you guys are bragging about all beyonce has done as if she just went up there and did it. without any type of training. But rihanna’s is natural because she didn’t have the ability to get all of that. So at least her accomplishments is still great since it was self taught.

  257. boo hoo hoo August 21, 2010

    Bad you need to give it a rest it ain’t my fault you so slow and can’t grasp what i’m saying.

  258. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ Cry Baby:

    No, talent CANNOT be bought. It can be improved on if it already exists, but it cannot be bought. If you don’t have a decent voice to begin with, no amount of vocal training can give it to you. If you don’t have musicality in your blood, you can spend years learning an instrument, and never learn to be anything beyond average. You can learn choreographed moves, but if you can’t bust a freestyle on your own, then that doesn’t make you a dancer.

    #FAIL.

    Riyodel stans are so dumb.

  259. Badd August 21, 2010

    To be a dancer you do need natural ability.

  278. That Cranberry Sauce August 21, 2010

    “RIHANNA STANS:

    You’re most likely to lose an argument with this group because of the pure delusion they’re often sippin’ on. This group often searches Rihanna’s name in hopes of getting in an argument with someone. They lurk on people’s pages and then send their “navy” to attack. The Rihanna stans love their girl (for reasons unknown), but often they take it above & beyond the extreme. They’re sometimes better than Rihanna’s own P.R. They bring up Billboard & RIAA stats in every argument. Some people in this group make fake hate pages and swarm the comment sections of blogs to start s***. They make up stats when they’re losing an argument. They won’t ever admit to losing an argument, opting to push their point to til the break of dawn. Rihanna stans are sneaky and often do they bandwagon an individual who shares the same enemies as they do. Word of advice, don’t argument with this group it’ll just be a headache and time wasted.”

    And that’s all I have to say about that… *continues to sip tea in my lawn chair*

  279. Badd August 21, 2010

    The reason that the Rihanna stans are like this is because

    @QUEENB,

    I’m co-signing every word…AMEN! 🙂

    @LALA,

    I totally agree with you. The overwhelming bout of sympathy this so called” victim” received last year was sickening and comletely over-the-top! After featuring on a song with SERIAL WIFE BEATER Eminem, I just don’t see her receiving the same level of sympathy this go ’round. Now don’t get me wrong, the media will still try to prop her up but the lovers of music have grown really tired of the sympathy for record sells routine!

    @ Cry Baby:

    So you cannot accept that some people just plain SUCK at something? You can be great at something, you can be good at something, you can be average at something, and then you can just SUCK at something.

    Example: Michael Jackson was a great dancer, Beyoncé is a good dancer, the kids on my street corner are average dancers, and Rihanna SUCKS at dancing.

    badd maybe if u haters stop saying b.s they fans will too………the reason why u people can say fail and rihanna stans are dumb is because most rihanna stans dont come here only a select few do…….so there are more haters here then lovers of course anyone will sound stupid when the battle is 5 against 1 or 12 against 4 …………..yall haters are dumb cause u waste your time saying all this s*** about her PROVING HOW AMAZING RELEVENT SHE IS RIGHT NOW………FANTSIA JUST TRIED TO KILL HERSELF AND ISNT GETTING HALF THE ATTENTION ON BLOGS AS RIHANNA GETTING READY TO RELEASE A NEW SINGLE!

  287. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^^ She is so incredible live, I don’t even listen to the album versions anymore, the live versions just slay. She should do a live album. Her voice just gives me CHILLS.

    __________________________________________________________________

    OMG, IS THIS A JOKE? Fake ass Rolling Stone (RS) Mag is a worthless peice of shi*. It lost all credibility when it took sides on rating 2 artists CD’s. What reputable mag does that? Whatever personal issue any artist has should have no impact on a professional mags review of said artists work! For instance:

    a) Eminem is a SERIAL WIFE BEATER but I have yet to read a review by Rolling Stones that references his wife beating against his musical talent.

    b) Tommy Lee beat the hell out of wife Pamela Anderson but RS never mentioned his 22 counts of wife beating when it came time to review Motley Crew’s CD’s.

    c) Robert Downey Jr. cut a woman with a bottle while high on a cocktail of cocaine and heroine but they never reviewed his movies based on this act.

    d) Mickey Rourke beat wife Carrie Otis but RS never reviewed his movies based on this action.

    Similar statements can be made about wife beaters! Fu*K Rolling Stones and its bullshi* ass fake reviews!

  291. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    @Jojo

    No honey YOU are the idiot! You can’t even spell or structure a proper sentence, child. Sit down!

    And so what if people who are fans of artists with actual talent aren’t fans of Rihanna? If you have to bring up another artist to defend Rihanna then obviously she’s not doing all of what you stans claim for her to do. Her talent/success (or lack thereof) is what should be what defends her, not other artists’ flaws/mishaps.

    And yes I do see you fans/stans on other posts bringing up Rihanna first trying to compare her to other artists but FAIL! Stop speaking about ish you obviously don’t know about.

    Also I never said she was irrelevant. However, she has to release an album every other year to remain relevant, which is what she’s currently attempting to do by releasing ANOTHER album so quickly. Soooo, try again, boo.

  292. thekiddz August 21, 2010

    @ True Blue

    I’m the same way. I love the live recordings of songs, I have so many vocal performances of Bee, Mariah and other great singers. You always get the best of them on tour and the audience just adds to that experience, I take them from youtube all the time 😀 And, IMO that’s one of the biggest testaments of a singers’ abilities. When they can breathe life into a song live. That’s the biggest complaint I have of Rihanna. Can you honestly say, Rihanna is going to KILL *insert song* live?

  293. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ TheKiddz:

    Unfortunately, Riyodel can only kill eardrums. 😉

    But yes, the TRUE testament of a real artist is whether they can sound just as good or better live than what they sound on their albums. If you can’t do that, then don’t expect me to plop down money for your album or your concert tickets. Real talent is what should be rewarded, not smoke & mirrors gimmicks that only give the ILLUSION of talent.

  294. thekiddz August 21, 2010

    @True Blue

    Haha! People are so quick to “stan” for personality instead of talent. They don’t care about “vocal ability” or “stage presence”, just as all long as they have numbers to brag about.

    _________________________________________________

    You are kidding right? Fan of a Fan is a MIXTAPE….IT’S FREE yet ppl love the song so much athat they elect to purchase what they can freely have by pressing a download on their computers. Chris is not a media prop which also makes the success of the song Deuces amazing. As for sells of cD’s I don’t after what I have witness, I don’t trust these ppl to tell me the truth about the rain I’m currently seeing outside of my window!

    Also, you cannot compare an R&B artist to a PoP artist they are marketed completely differently!

  297. jonberry August 21, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE,

    Yes, where in the world is Adele? She hit the scene like a rocket and just faded away. Her voice and style is also just incredible! With Bey, Adele, Duffy & Amy we are talking about true talent that don’t require much more than a microphone to entertain a crowd. Some folks have to be scantily dress, humping on dancers, riding on tanks etc to make a show remotely interesting!

  298. Yellow Gorillah August 21, 2010

    Hmmmm ok have fun Loving Rihanna oops hating =P

  299. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    Which is exactly why I say record sales and Grammys aren’t an indication of talent, just popularity. Very of today’s top artists actually have any talent to back up their success. Anyone with the right image and sound can have a string of #1 singles and sell millions of albums if their label plays their cards right. There are so many talented acts out there who aren’t getting enough exposure (like Janelle Monáe for example), and a lot of the times, it’s because today’s public and major labels aren’t interested in an artist that doesn’t conform to conventional standards. I mean, look how Diddy is ignoring her, but wasting his money & time on the sure-to-be-a-flop Cassie.

    Although the three top-selling acts of all time are The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, and this is DECADES after they’ve reached their musical peaks, so in their case it’s not just numbers, it’s timelessness. I doubt Rihanna will ever be able to boast such a thing.

  300. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ Yellow Gorillah:

    How sad you must be to boast about Riyodel having “more comments” than anybody else, but not more album sales, more critical acclaim, or more talent.

    http://typophile.com/files/pathetic.jpg

  301. thekiddz August 21, 2010

    NMH (Nodding My Head), but just a quick FYI. Janelle (who’s album I’ve been listening to all summer) has her own label. This video should clear up how Diddy is involved. And Cassie is even worse than Rihanna 😀 I also feel that people aren’t looking for substance anymore, well not the majority. SMM…said “generic music is more successful than music with substance. When was the last time a ballad on the level of “Halo” by Beyonce went #1 on the Hot 100 and sold 5 million copies like “TiK ToK”? I can see where he/she was going with this.

    @Dion-ish

    What were you trying to prove with that video? Seriously? She has ZERO stage presence. The band, lights, and dancers made that performance watcheable, but all Rihanna did was walk back and forth swinging them pink feathers. What did she do vocally? NOTHING, the same ol’ dry vocals. Like WTF was so great about that performance?

    @DION-ISH

    Ok, what was that suppose to be? All she did was walk around and talk throughout the instrumentation and she then attempted to “belt” at the end. That no was no better than the studio cut. Show me a performance where she is actually singing and putting the studio cut to shame.

    Something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhoxBvg-1hM

    Rihanna is one of the FEW Pop Acts out today who has actual substance in her music. Its been said time and time again by almost every critically acclaimed music journalist…Theres something that sets her apart from the Gaga’s and Katy’s …Period.

    And Love The Way You Lie is currently the #1 single in the country, Good to see music w/ actual meaning and substance gracing the top of the charts, instead of the typical.

    And i Like Beyonce, Not here to down her…..But Bee stans PLZ do not talk as if she has TRUE substance in her music, STOP

  316. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    You always post the best B’ performance videos. I forgot all about her AOL sessions. That gave me CHILLS! I haven’t seen that in a minute. I used to LIVE for youtube performances of B’ a while back! I’m slipping, I need to get back on my youtube game!

  317. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    I like how @Dion-ish changed the topic from performances (the post of that average performance) to the topic of songs with substance. LOL!

  318. thekiddz August 21, 2010

    @Dion-ish

    I never said anything about Rihanna lacking substance. I thought Rated R was by far her best work. I already told you how much I love “Fire Bomb”. I said she lacks vocal skill and stage presence. And the only thing of Bee I “stan” for, is her voice. Point blank. I also didn’t make her out to have “TRUE substance”, whatever that is. I posted that video because she KILLED that. Effortless and soulful belting , the runs were placed nicely and she conveyed more passion than in the actual recording. Something Rihanna has yet to do.

  319. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    I know! That girl can kill it! Amazing stage presence too, she doesn’t have to move around because her voice is powerful enough to warrant just standing there, but she really puts 100% of herself in every performance.

    @ The Kiddz:

    I got some catching up to do with her as well, been focusing on other artists for a while. But I have never watched a Bey performance with me having to complain about sounding bad or not having enough presence. My favorite performances are when she goes crazy like Tina Turner.

    I like when Bey goes crazy too, but I loved it even more when she just lets loose vocally.

    If you’re buying her album (it’s called “Lungs”, btw) get the special edition, cause it has bonus tracks.

    As for Bey, that perfomance of “Ring The Alarm” at the 2006 VMAs was by far the most memorable performance of the night, and one of my faves. I kept watching the re-run of the show just so I could watch that performance again!

  326. TEE August 21, 2010

    @ TRUE BLUE

    NOT GOING TO ARGUE W/ YOU ON WHETHER RIHANNA WRITES HER MUSIC BECUZ SHE HAS WRITING CREDITS ON SEVERAL OF HER RECORDS AND OTHERS AS WELL LIKE HER VERSUS IN LIVE YOUR LIFE AND RUN THIS TOWN….SHE ALSO EXEC PRODUCED HER ALBUM.

    @THEKIDDZ

    Beyonce is a VERY talented SInger/performer. She’s Beyonce. ppl w/ voices like her and Xtina come very few….But she’s also Soul. Rihanna is nothing more than a Pop Singer….Shes never claimed to be a vocal powerhouse, But she has vocal talent. and Stage Presence, Being that your a Bee fan, YES you might not find Rihanna particularly entertaining because Rihanna doesnt do what Beyonce does, She does Rihanna. Rihanna is more-so a Versitle, Rock Festival type of Perfomer…no Different than the Hayleys, Kelly Clarksons and Katy Perrys…Just that she’s black and Bee stans particularly execpt her to Hip Hop dance across the stage like Beyonce, But thats NOT Rihanna…..She entertains in her own way, She Rocks out…..And VERY few Bee Stans find those type of performers entertaining per-say.

  328. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @BADD

    Yep Yep, iDont Consider singing about Bubble Dreams and Dicso Sticks Substance honey…Dont be delusional. (and i LOVE Gaga)

    Its been said time and time again, Rihanna doesnt just settle for HITS. And Album like Rated R took a risk…Totally different from anything else released recently!

  329. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    LOL @ some of these ppl JUST now learning of Indie Rockers Florence and The Machine from the Movie Eat, Pray Love.

    I Know my Alternative artist…Florence is awesome btw.

    But yea @TEE

    Didnt Eminem say he wrote the song w/ Rihanna in mind, and nobody else could’ve done it? Plus Rihanna is featured on the Record soo that makes it a record of her’s as well…I mean is Telephone NOT beyonce’s record as well as gaga’s?? Hmm

  330. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    That’s a fair assessment. But, I’m not asking for Rihanna to be like Beyonce, sing like her or perform. Just expect that she performs with a little more enthusiasm and conviction. Maybe I’m just asking for too much, IDK?

  332. Badd August 21, 2010

    All of GaGa’s song have substance.
    You simple-minded ppl just don’t understand.
    Katy Perry sang about bubble dreams.
    & GaGa had one song that was a Disco Sticks.
    Idk how you can even compare that to the ish Rihanna
    puts out…that she doesn’t even right.
    & ppl need to shut up about Rated R
    being different because it was the same old
    pop music…it just didn’t cut it.

    #FAIL.

  333. True Blue August 21, 2010

    “VERY few Bee Stans find those type of performers entertaining per-say.”

    I know you said “very few”, and not “all”, so I won’t accuse you of generalizing, but I could watch performances of Barbra Streisand or Judy Garland or Sarah Vaughan all day long, and all they do is mainly stand there. They don’t dance or jump around. But they have stage presence and most importantly GREAT VOICES. If you have a great voice, then you don’t need to perform like MJ or Beyoncé, especially if you don’t make dance music.

    But Rihanna makes dance-pop music, so naturally people expect her to dance when she’s onstage. Also, she should compensate for her lack of vocal prowess by being talented in other aspects of her performance, so people could actually compliment her on her live shows. Like Madonna and Janet aren’t what one would call “great” singers, but they just kill when it comes to performing, and that’s why they get so much props for their performances, even if people don’t say anything about great vocals.

  334. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    Wait Rihanna doesn’t settle for hits, yet none of her number ones are ‘substance’ material? If it’s more about ‘substance’ then Rih stans need to quit using ‘sales’ as means to prove something. It just seems that when the talent/sales/success argument doesn’t go in stans favor, they bring up substance. *side eye*

  338. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    OK…..Fair. BUT, Rihanna has great stage presence! IMO. I Mean Plus she hasn’t gotten ONE bad Concert Review, Not one.

    Rihanna Dances, When Necessary towards the record, Like Rude Boy. She’s more of a Diverse appeal performer that can perform @ a rock festival, Hip Hop Festival, etc. etc. When she did dance, it was more-so marketed as her being an Island Beyonce. (Being Honest) …Now Shes Doing Rihanna! She More-so focuses on her Vocals but Rocks out…No Diff. from Halely or Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson etc.

    But Personally I Will Like For her to get some dancing back involved more…i LIVED off her Madonna Vogue Performance:) Hopefully 4 the next album she will..

    Rated R was kinda more dark and underground-ish soo i didn’t execpt her to dance really to be honest.

  339. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 21, 2010

    @True Blue

    Co-f*cking-sign! The same here, I would enjoy any performance that entertains me. I don’t care if it’s strictly singing, dancing, stage presence, etc. I don’t have a preference of style of performance, it’s all about ENTERTAINMENT.

    And I COMPLETELY agree with this: —“But Rihanna makes dance-pop music, so naturally people expect her to dance when she’s onstage. Also, she should compensate for her lack of vocal prowess by being talented in other aspects of her performance, so people could actually compliment her on her live shows.” — It’s just natural to assume that because she makes such catchy and fun songs that she would elevate that excitement with her dancing or stage presence.

    @BADD…

    ??????? Ohhhhh Kkkkkkkkayyyy

    All i have to say is Fire Bomb #EPIC ..Plus Rihanna Written (shoudlve Been a single) but OF COURSE they went towards a more radio friendly single and thats understandable but YET i am disappointed Rihanna didnt Release it.

    What boggles my mind, is that she’s NEVER been trained. Her vocal technique is of the Gods. Flawless, Perfect, absolutely Magnificent! When she sings a song, she retires it.

    @The Kiddz and @True Blue

    I think Barbara’s voice epitomizes PERFECTION. Her voice is tremendously classic. Loves it!

  343. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    I really wish she would just go away for awhile she is begining to annoy me I’m tired of seeing her #no shade. LOL @ these comments

  344. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @ TRUE BLUE

    DARLIN THAT WASNT A “BAD” REVIEW. Ive Seen Bad reviews, and that was like a high praise considering the bad reviews ive seen from others (that i wont name).

    And WTF did you do? Go Search, Find, and Hunt for the closest thing to a bad review you could find?! …LOL hmmmm There’s sooo much i could say but i wont.

    And YES Barbra is Simply AMAZING…..Her And Mariah are like the most Talented women out there vocally and just all around!

  345. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @JAZ0195….

    DEAD!! Are you talking about me?!?!

    Becuase all im going to say about that is YOUR IN A RIHANNA POST. And seeing Haters Constantly talking the same talk every post is whats annoying…..Like seriously? Skip the post.

  346. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    Well, the concert cancellations on her current tour AND the fact that so many people who aren’t paid critics are complaining about her lackluster performances say a hell of a lot more.

  347. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    LOL @rihanna stans gloating about getting over 300 comments. LMAO I can’t

    umm I hate to break it to you but this is not an accomplishment for her LOL It’s one for sam and trent tho LOL

  348. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    @DIOH-ISH please tell me how am I hating? all i said is that she needs to take a break because I’m tired of seeing her.

  349. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    @DION-ISH You need to calm down not once did I call rihanna out her name or say she sucked I only said she gets annoying just like every other artist at some point.

  350. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    There Were only 5 Dates Cancelled out of 60+ Dates?! And What concert goers complained about the concert becuase um plenty of individuals who went to the tour praised it, and said it was good…If anything the Paid critics were more opinionated?! WERE are you getting all of this BS from? you a**? Please!!

    Bee stan stay Pressed over Rihanna, Like Seriously.

  351. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^ Try reading the comments from the people who attended below the review, some do actually complain about her lack of stage presence. Why do you refuse to accept that Rihanna is NOT as universally acclaimed as you pretend her to be?

    And a Bey stan (I’m not a stan of anyone, only a fan, btw) PRESSED over Riyodel? Please, the only type of people that would be pressed over Rihanna are Cassie fans, cause that’s the only person Riyodel is slaying right now.

  352. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @JAZ0195

    OK Sooo Why dont CB go away?! I Mean serouisly?

    He’s released an album, Mixtape, and now coming out with another album soon. BUT i could care less because im not a fan, i skip his post, and i dont listen to his music. Soo i Could care less if he released an album in 5 years or tomorrow. its his fans that he’s doing it for.

    YOU dont have to listen or care anything for Rihanna in the same way, yet it seems you do soo.. oh well.

  353. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    Your Joking Right?!?! Hmm let me see a couple of ppl in a blog post (whom may or may not have attended the show, or could possible just be bitter haters) compared to 20,000+ individuals A SHOW worldwide?!?! Seriously? You Sound Pressed and disparate over Rihanna. Seriously, i dont care for beyonce, so am i in a Beyonce post when posted, NOPE

    I Mean Damn there’s ppl that woudlnt enjoy a Beyonce show in the world….Were very diverse sweetheart.

    —-

    The Fact that you spend soo much time trying to DOWN Rihanna Speaks Volumes in itself sweetheart.

  354. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    @DION-ISH You are a liar I’ve seen you in multiple CB post and I said EVERY OTHER ARTISTS so that means CB and all the other artists I’m a fan of.

  355. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^ Ooh, there’s no doubt that Bey has her detractors, just as every artist does. But very few who cannot stand her as an artist try to downplay the fact that she is talented. Riyodel on the other hand, her lack of singing and performing skills are rather legendary, even to non-die hard fans. And the fact that you resort to calling anyone who doesn’t think she’s good a ” bitter hater” shows how insecure and immature you are. I think you’re the one who’s pressed, not me. Besides, if she’s doing so well, why are so many of her stans inflating her stats and even blatantly lying about her being more popular than Gaga or Bey?

  356. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^ @ Dion-ish.

  357. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    You rihanna stans complain so much that beyonce needs to go away but yet it’s okay for rihanna to release two albums close to each other. Hypocrits are the worst kind of people.

  358. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @JAZ0195

    Um When i was in a CB post?

    The Only CB post ive been in is the one w/ him and USher supposly touring and being that im a Usher Fan, i Commented and Gave a Positive Comment at that…UNTIL a Stan brought Rihanna up. (A Bee Stan, as of what i recall)

  359. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    @DION-ISH I do listen to her music and am some what a fan of hers but she needs to take a break. You rihanna stans are too sensitive every little thing someone says sets you guys off and it’s actually kinda funny LOL

  360. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    @DION-ISH You just made yourself look stupid you wouldn’t know a stan was talking about rihanna if you weren’t in a CB post and I’ve seen you in more than just that post so stop your lying.

  361. DION-ISH August 21, 2010

    @JAZ0195

    Girl Aint nobody Lyin!

    If you read correctly you will see that i was in the post because Im a Fan of Usher and i was looking into the details of him and CB touring and i gave positive comments on it.

    Period.

  362. JAZ0195 August 21, 2010

    @DION-ISH You still lyed about that being your the only CB post you were on

  363. james August 21, 2010

    EW WTF! this girl trippin! shes still on tour for Rated R… zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz overkill!!

    its too much! if its a re-release, well thats fine, but another album ugh!

    Her and lady gaga need to calm down lolz! its like their too scared to stop releasing music

  364. RosaRubbel August 21, 2010

    Since 2003 (or even earlier) Beyoncé is reigning the contemporary R&B scene. & I mean REALLY reigning. Beyoncé never had a weak point in this time, she is just still standing strong. & I’m NOT even a B stan! I just adore her empowerment in R&B. & let’s be honest. Rihanna has always been behind Beyoncé. She had one good album (‘Good Girl Gone Bad’), but yet she has to prove herself.

  365. Bluekid August 21, 2010

    This turn in to a 300+ post about Beyonce- V- Rihanna!

    BEYONCE WON!

  366. the thoughts of… August 21, 2010

    Sam your sarcasm with Rihanna kills me. We all know that you really are looking forward to whatever Ms. Fenty does so you can rush and post about it and get hits. You know a Rihanna post=Fans and stans arguing back and forth for hours and generating hundreds of comments. Stop playing. We all know Rihanna is not the most talented by a long shot, but hits from her posts are paying for your blog.

    Beyonce is the winner as always she has mad talent

  369. WATEVA August 21, 2010

    Im not a stan of either Beyonce and Rihanna
    but IMO Rihanna is the more versatile artist
    as she has explored so many different genres
    unlike Beyonce

  370. Tiff August 21, 2010

    In other news. The Bed Intruder song is number 89 on the Billboard US Hot 100 Charts!

    http://www.gossipjacker.net/2010/08/bedroom-intruder-song-89-on-hot-100.html#more

    Now if a song like that can chart faster than Rihahhaa’s Rockstar 101…that really says a lot about Rih’s star power here in the US. People would rather hear a dude from the projects sing about his sister getting attacked than hearing Rihaha screech about being a fake RockStar..Gotta love America!

  371. WOWZA August 21, 2010

    @WATEVA

    i agree. Beyonce is still the same boring old Bey. Im so sick of seeing her and her damn lacefronts. LIKE KERI SAID. Go have some babies, You need to sit down, You’re fading. *DEAD*

  372. WOWZA August 21, 2010

    401 comments already? Rihanna keeps em pressed haters talking. ^_^

  373. perhaps August 21, 2010

    I could care less I just want to see what she is gonna wear.

  374. True Blue August 21, 2010

    @ Wowza:

    Beyoncé fading? LOL, you wish she would fade away, cause that’s the only chance Riyodel has of ever making it beyond where she is now.

    Silly delusional stans.

    @ Tiff:

    LMAO!!! Oh, that’s pathetic!
