Hot Shots: Rihanna Gets Loud In British Q Magazine

Published: Sunday 19th Dec 2010 by Trent

Check out Rihanna’s photoshoot in British Q magazine. Despite having one of the 2010’s largest promotional campaigns, the Bajan’s latest album, ‘Loud’, has yet to be certified gold. Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday’ debut LP, on the other hand, has already accomplished that feat although it was released a week later.

    damn, do you have a personal problem with rihanna? has she done something to you? no need to be negative about her all the time..

  2. Mano December 19, 2010

    that girl is so weird … Man !!!

  3. MARIAH STAN December 19, 2010

    It’s been a while since you posted something about this b****!

    Can’t sing, can’t dance, can’t produce = Rihanna

    Go support the Queen of Music – Mariah Carey’s new christmas album “Merry Christmas II You” in stores now!!!!

    Samantha, before you post fraudulent information, I suggest you do your research. For one, certifications have to be paid for by the label. Rihanna’s album has sold 496,000 copies in the U.S., meaning it shipped well over 500,000 copies a long time ago. Her label just isn’t going to pay for a Gold certification, when they can just pay for a Platinum one in January.

    Secondly, Rihanna’s promotion campaign this era has been highly exaggerated by the media and this blog.
    Here was her promotional campaign:
    October 31st – SNL
    November 15 – The Seven
    November 16 – 106 & Park + Letterman
    November 17 – Good Morning America
    November 21st – AMA

    There hasnt been any promotion for this album in over a month yet its still top ten on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart.

  5. chichi December 19, 2010

    poor riherp…ole girl cant get gold after 2months SMDH

  6. Prada-G December 19, 2010

  7. OKAY December 19, 2010

    @MARIAH STAN

    Can’t sing, can’t dance, can’t produce = Rihanna>>>>>>>>>>i guess she and Mariah have something in common

  8. REASONABLE VOICE December 19, 2010

    And I’d like to ask all the #RihannaNavy, #TeamBreezy, #BeyHive, and #TeamMinaj to not take the bait.

    Psychos: Nicky and Wire will be here any minute. Nicky will of course compare Rihanna to Beyonce in some way and inevitably start a stan war. Please DONT fall for it!

  9. Prada-G December 19, 2010

    thank you @resonable voice! and rihanna is a big artist she has sold 12 million albums world wide in 5 years she has fans all over the world of course she is going to give her fans what they want and properly promote her album!

    @ OKAY

    So wait, Mariah can procude and dance? Hmmm I must’ve missed something. Plus, Mariah is as fugly as the froth that form as the corner of a rhino’s nostril when it get cold.

    And SERIOUSLY Trent? The album ‘LOUD’ was released not four weeks ago? Give it a chance, for f***’s sake… although… I wouldn’t expect you to, because ThatGrapeJuice is one of the shittiest reporting websites I’ve ever come across, what happened to being unbiased, hmm?

  12. 4ever December 19, 2010

    Yeh.. but its the run up to christmas… every artists sells are up.. but still.. take that have shifted 1.4 million in 5 weeks in the uk,

  13. John December 19, 2010

    Ignorants kill me: yes sweeties Mariah can sang and make music (write and produce). Rihanna can´t. It´s a fact

  14. k December 19, 2010

  15. Sherlock December 19, 2010

    she looks crazy in that pic! and that diamond barrette in her hair is covering up those naps. lol!

    get a perm, gwarl!

  16. Nichole December 19, 2010

    Ignoring all of the trollish imbeciles.

    Trent, I am no Rihanna supporter but you can be such a d***** sometimes. An album has sell close to 500k in order to go gold, and Rihanna has already reached those numbers.

    She looks good in those images.

  17. Teflon Don December 19, 2010

    TRENT AND SAM NEED MONEY FOR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING HENCE THE RIHANNA POST TO GET HITSSSS…… RIHANNA NAVY DON’T FALL FOR IT

  18. HUH? December 19, 2010

    How Much has Nicki sold World Wide in Comparison To Rihanna?

  19. ISOTOPE December 19, 2010

    WHEN RIHANNA POSES IN PENTHOUSE, I’D SAY THAT’S A HIT!! HAHA.

  20. Auntie Jackie December 19, 2010

    Her hair and face are a hot mess. Her album did well by her standards.

  21. Traci Summers December 19, 2010

    SAMNANTHA JONES TOP COMPARING THAT NEW S*** NICKI TO RIHANNA RIHANNA HAS BEEN IN THE GAME AND SOLD MORE THAN NICKI WILL EVER MAKE IN HER ENTIRE LIFE. FACT. ,MOST OF IT IS GOING TO WAYNE AND HER INSTALLMENTS FOR HER ASS SURGERY ANYWAY

  22. 123456 December 19, 2010

    Honestly yall are the most predictable site ever…….

    BTW How much did Ciara sell or Kelly??? oops kelly cant even release an album

  23. Keesha December 19, 2010

    The Eagles scored 4 touchdowns in a row to beat the Giants!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Go Eagles!

  24. Keesha December 19, 2010

    Oops! I clicked on the wrong post!

  25. bobs December 19, 2010

    Keep it rolling! That GRAPE JUICE CURSE gave Ciara the worst flop ever. 30k. OOPS.

    Last I checked Rihanna solf 500k in the US and 500k in the UK. In the US 500k is gold. It hasn’t been certfied, because they will certify platinum by the end of month.

    Chris Brown? He can’t even cross PAPER certification. And poor Ciara will be luck to hit 90k total. OOPS.

  26. MissImpartial December 19, 2010

    It is quite disappointing though if you look at the fact that she already has two 1 singles.
    If you look at the fact that Brit can sell 500K in first week with less promo and 1 single. And the same with Beyonce who can sell 450-500K first week with one single.

  27. Leo December 19, 2010

    Those pics make her look crazy! ughh! and Trent for all intents and purposes Rihanna is gold already it’s just not certified! She will sell more than Nicki WW but about the US

  28. RIHLUV December 19, 2010

    SAM AND TRENT KNOW WHAT THEIR DOING..LIKE RIRI SAID…THEY ALL SECRETLY ARE FANS..THIS B**** IS GOLD IN THE US AND 2X PLATINUM IN THE UK WITHIN A MONTH. AND SHE’S ONLY 22.. SHE’S SLAYING THESE B******….BUT YAA ALREADY KNOW THAT.. CANT WAITTTTT TILL S&M COMES OUTTT

  29. Tami December 19, 2010

    I ain’t no Rihanna stan but why do you guys ALWAYS THROW SHADE AT RIHANNA!?DAMN LEAVE THE B**** ALONE!GGEEZ!BEcause that b**** will go platinum if you like it or NOT

  30. jojo December 19, 2010

    um first

    britney and beyonce are both almost thirty with careers that have been going for ten plus years so they should be selling 400,000 to 500,000 first week, rihanna is 22 and has been out for 5 years

    second

    her album is gold just no certification…….also nicki went gold quickly but will she sell coinously throughout the year………..rih rih will
    and rih has sold 1.5 milllion w.w in 4 weeks soooooo shes doing great

    ITS RIHS FASTEST SELLIN ALBUM

  31. Angie December 19, 2010

    First I’d just like to say to “Reasonable Voice” you’re one of the few Rihanna fans I agree with. I like Rihanna but I dont go overboard like SOME OF YOU. Now to the pictures. She is actually wearing clothes. I was shocked. BUT Im for it. So good job Rihanna, sell albums because of your song material and not because of your boobs/b***. And Im sure this album will sell like Good Girl Gone Bad because it has similar material and those are the only 2 I bought. 🙂

  32. Tlc December 19, 2010

    “BTW How much did Ciara sell or Kelly??? oops kelly cant even release an album”

    “Chris Brown? He can’t even cross PAPER certification. And poor Ciara will be luck to hit 90k total. OOPS.”

    Deaddddddddddd!!!! Omg Slayeddd me Lmfao TOO TRUE

    Lmao This is just too desperate for hits!! I can’t stop laughing Trent & Sam just did this to get some traffic since this weekend they didn’t make no income LOL. It’s okay that she isn’t certified gold , in her 4th week she still managed to outsell your fav lol. When Ciara or Kelly sell out 4 02. dates before that year….. and they even hit #99 on billboard ….this is not even a discussion lmao nice try Trent:)

  33. u still hating-LOSER December 19, 2010

    Princess Rihanna is the only one who gets NEGATIVY on this wack site.Stop tryna pit RiRi against Niki-LOSER.. “LOUD” has been out for 4weeks-with barely any promotion and has sold 489,000 copies in the U.S. alone.11 tho. short of GOLD so stop HATING.This week will make 5 weeks it will be OVER GOLD.Niki had HEAVY promo and despite her 1st week sales being 376 tho. it took 2 more weeks just to reach gold.LOUD#2 in the UK. 2#1 singles with more to come-because “LOUD” is a greattttt CD with some good ass music that attracts a variety of different age groups and ethnic groups.RiRi is versatile like that and that’s why she is LOVED by many-so keep hating.And the pictures are sooooo BEAUTIFUL and S***.WORK IT RIRI.

  34. LOLA December 19, 2010

    RIHANNA SUX!

  39. Jergarr December 19, 2010

    If they make this girl a couple more shades lighter, she would probably sell even more…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  40. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    Um, come on TGJ. This post is REAL pointless and seems to be an attempt to make up for your lack of Rihanna news this past week. Not to mention, you compare her and Nicki of all people which is even more ridiculously foolish! In addition to that, you guys lack credibility with the numbers, being that Rihanna is damn near Gold in the US and past platinum WW. Child…..you know you doing bad when me of all people is defending Rihanna.

    Anyway, hate the pictures. She’s definitely taken bette ones.

  41. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    LOL @ the psycho getting caught once again using a different name (JUMO) and getting called a psycho by her fellow Rihanna Navy member! LMAO!

  42. i wonder December 20, 2010

    Trent is just mad that Rihanna hasn’t been around lately for him to get hits for his website. With all these hate, I wonder if you still pray to God for forgiveness ,or even go to church with a clear mind.

  43. Truth December 20, 2010

    I love the photos…Lets face it…she’s a beautiful woman.

  44. Badd December 20, 2010

    Trent shades because of stans like X..& Jumo a.k.a Nicky a.k.a whatever else the pyschopath wants to be called today.

  45. Chase December 20, 2010

    i am a rihanna fan and she will go gold next week and she is a bigger artist than nicki even doe i love them both im from the uk rihanna is massive and i love this website thatgrapejuice cuz its from the uk but it does not matter if i like rihanna or nicki i feel like this site takes it a bit to PERSONAL with rihanna hate on her music,voice, whatever but u dont have to all the time hate on her its soo personal why that is a sin if u got bad ishh all the time bout her just say no comment to her stuff dont make it personal only makes this website look stupid and i dont want that cuz i love this site pliz listen to this REAL TALK

  46. Truyall December 20, 2010

    Stole Her Lyrics for Umbrella
    Stole Fefe Dobsons look
    Stole grace jones imagery
    Stole from a wrestler for the cover art for Russian Roulette
    stole her perfume name from a fan suggestion
    Throws food on stage when people are starving
    is par of the illumanti
    promotes evil and darkness in her videos
    licking skulls, blood pouring from eyes, baphomets, 5 point pentagarms
    has done the dirty on all her managers
    has no loyalty
    has no class

  47. matt December 20, 2010

    i’ve never liked rihanna much as i thought she was sub-par when it came to her performances, but the xfactor final omg she nailed it, the energy the sass, i was then a fully fledged fan. trent i’m sure you have personal problems with rihanna, confess?

  49. demi December 20, 2010

    is sam f****** crazy. he needz to check dem sources. Rihanna has gone gold in 4 WEEKS! umm.. yeah almost 2 million worldwide in 4 WEEKS!!! Are you blind Samantha she is selling. so take a rain check and back the f*** off b****.

  50. Juan December 20, 2010

    @ OKAY: Mariah can’t sing/ dance / produce?? Are you serious? She may not dance, but she sings perfectly well, and she WRITES HER MUSIC. These last three words can’t belong to Rihanna’s vocabulary…

    Anyway, Rihanna’s Loud has sold extremaly well, so this post is not right…. In the UK, it’s about to reach the 500k copies… I would have never thought she’d sell so much… Congrats!!

    A new era is starting next year… The comeback everybody has been waiting for: Britney Spears… Are you ready?

  51. cool hwip December 20, 2010

    Could be a GGGB era coming… who knows! She’s straight up smashing it here in the UK. She has a bag full of hits with Loud. Man Down for release!

    @Reasonable Voice… You seem like a normal Rihanna stan/fan. 😉

    oh shut up trent you fool. There is need to be hating on Rihanna, she is actually making good hits which i don’t see some your favorites doing i.e. Kelly Rowland.
    personally for me its not about having a big strong powerful voice because if it was most songs would be ballads, rihanna is hard working, makes GOOD songs, i think she is an amazing performer and actually can sing, not the greatest one, but can hold down a song.
    Anyway, she is doing something right and her songs are great, i’d love for you to interview her cause she would just make an absolute laughing stock out of you. the end.

  62. lola December 20, 2010

    IF YOU RIHANNA ASS LICKERS DON’T LIKE WHAT TRENT HAS TO SAY ABOUT RIHANNA, THEN GET THE F*** OFF THE BLOG! How dare y’all? Ya’ll got some damn nerve you hypocrites! This is Trent’s blog so he can post about anything he wants and if you have such a damn problem with it, get the f*** off the damn site! Rihanna’s sales aren’t impressive whatsoever. I wish you stans would stop trying to make it like she’s selling albums like crazy. Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Susan Boyle all go platinum worldwide their first week of sales. It takes Rihanna over a month just to reach that and she’s supposed to be this big superstar! How the hell was “Rated R” not a flop when it sold 3 million, but her GGGB album sold over 9 million? What a drop! Okay, so “Loud” sold 500,000 in the US… but I bet it won’t sell more than one million in this country and it’ll take her several months just to get to that million.

    BTW, Rihanna is ugly as hell! Just look at that face. How can anyone praise her looks? She has a wide nose, devious eyes, aging and pale skin, and that red hair is just awful! I am SHOCKED AS HELL THAT SHE HAS ON CLOTHES THOUGH! THANK GOD!

  63. DEDE760 December 20, 2010

    Rihanna look better with clothes on. Anyway Congrats Rihanna

    Hey Juno did you know that you and TheRealNicky have the same avatar?

  64. Beystannnn December 20, 2010

    Your such an ASSHOLE Trent! She has already gone 2X Platinum in the UK but you always find some way of underminding her success. She is loved by many people and has a growing fan base. She is doing bigger than many artists older than her. Give her a break and stop the hate. Your starting to sound bitter!

    P.S. this is coming from a HUGE Beyonce stan but you have to call a spade a spade and you obviously have something againt Rihanna. Grow up and get off Chris Brown’s d***!

  65. Rihanna Storm December 20, 2010

    Ok listen here Lola! No one cares abt ur stupid opinion. Ur just a jealous nasty little troll that’s just neglected by everyone around here so u lash out at humans with lives like Rihanna! Ugh, its quite pathetic, but expected from something like you. U only wish/dream u could look a 1/3 good looking as Rihanna. Keep the dream alive hun. Hahahahaha anywho yay Riri!

  66. THEREALNICKY December 20, 2010

    @ LOLA LMFAO!!!!

    TAYLOR SWIFT AND SUSAN BOYLE ARE THE ONLY CHICKS TO SELL 1 MILLION IN ONE WEEK.

    BUT HERE’S A SECRET……RIHANNA IS OUTSELLING SUSAN BOYLE IN HER HOME COUNTRY 🙂

    HAHAHAHHAHAHAH

  67. WHITE JESUS December 20, 2010

    nobody can undermine anything just a couple of bitter f*** smelling their s*** becus the damn tranny they promote flooooooopped..ha

  68. Gucci December 20, 2010

    Thank you Reasonable Voice for educating the masses. I think it’s important for people to understand that TGJ is just a watered down version of MediaTakeOut.

    Nicki Minaj is a brand new artist. Of course she will have a lot of attention this album. She also had 10x more promotion than Rihanna, and she’s STILL promoting. Girl, bye.

    Let’s just ignore how many copies your favorite Mariah Carey sold in a month, or rather to date.
    Let’s just ignore your other favorite Kelly Rowland altogether.

    *sips water*

  69. sugar honey ice tea December 20, 2010

    why are people talking Nicki world-wide sales …. what rapper sells loads worldwide, there are only five rap acts from the us that charted in the uk last year, Jay z, Kanye, Bob, Ludacris and Nicki Minaj …Nickis target market is the US just like every other female rapper bar missy eliiot …. this Nicki hate is getting so boring now …shes proved her point 561,000 in 3 weeks what more to people need jeeeeeez …..

    Lol at a certain mental institution regular getting caught trying to comment under different names!

    Anyway, those sales aren’t that good for some one of her “caliber”. Her stans need to stop talking her up so much. Rihanna is a laughing stock of the industry, and I’m sure she realizes it. No wonder she looks so miserable in these pictures. I can just imagine how badly her US leg of her tour is going to do. She might as well skip even coming to the US for her tour…no one is checking for her here.

    Too bad. I wish the best for her tho.

    LIKE SOME OF HER SONGS

    BUT SHE IS JUST ONE BIG MARKETING COMMODITY

    SHE DOESNT WRITE ANYTHING

    SHE DOESNT STYLE HERSELF

    SHE DOESNT PRODUCE HER OWN MUSIC

    SHE DOESN’T COLLABORATE IN THE MAKING OF HER CHOREOGRAPHY

    I MEAN ALL CREDIT, SHE;S DONE WELL CONSIDERING THE ONLY THING SHE DOES IS LOOK PRETTY AND SING OK ISH

    ITS A SHAME SOMEONE LIKE CIARA WHO IS MUCH MORE INVOLVED BEHIND THE SCENES IS SO UNDERRATED…

    NOT A FAIR WORLD.

    Reasonable voice clocked everyone’s tea with one comment. There’s really no need to argue all the facts are right there.

    *sips tea*

    Try again.

    Rihanna sales for “LOUD” are faster then any album she has put out to date and is still going up.Rihanna has put out 5 albums in 5 years and is still here,even topping her first week sales each time.How many artists can put out that many albums that fast and still be success.There are so many who have failed trying to reach atleast 10% of what Rihanna done,so give her a break.Go Rihanna!!!
