Flashback: Rihanna, Amerie & Teairra Mari Perform ‘Lose My Breath’

Published: Monday 31st Jan 2011 by Sam

On slow news days such as this, reaching back into the archives always yields some interesting tidbits. Case, point, example, Rihanna, Amerie, and Teairra Mari’s tribute to Destiny’s Child at the 2005 World Music Awards.

Beyond scratching my head at how 6 years have flown by so fast, it was also unbelievable to reflect on the path each of the ladies careers have taken. With Mari clearly billed as the main attraction and Amerie effortlessly making the part her own, who would have thought Rihanna and her mechanical whine would emerge as the most successful. Or have more number #1’s than the group she was tributing? Sigh.

At this point, it seems promo teams should be the ones getting Platinum plaques; for – as Rihanna’s have shown – folk will buy hot doo-doo on a platter. Just make sure it’s shined up real good.

Randomness: I miss DC3!

  13. CC January 31, 2011

    Love this performance!

    Teairra killed it, Amerie was great too, Rihanna was alright.

    I like Rihanna, but she’s clearly the least talented there, so it is pretty unfair that the other two are practically unheard of 🙁 i really like them both

  14. wateva January 31, 2011

    sam, promo teams DO get platinum plaques you f***** idiot! for someone who claims to know so much about the industry, you dont know d***!

  15. SJAMZ27 January 31, 2011

    @RIHLUV
    i LOVE how you say Beyonce better watch her back ..meaning rihanna is in BACK of beyonce … good job boo

    &tell ya girl to step ha s*** up cuz she was and still is stiff as f***

  16. DUMMIES January 31, 2011

    …I keep telling you Hopeless ass Gay Dudes….That Number #1’s Sales Etc…Does not count…Look at Ashanti…….

    Rihanna has no Talent at ALL…All she is…is barely a Pretty face……

    Amerie and Teairra are more talented than that yelling screechin billy goat in a ronald mcdonald wig 🙂

  17. Kenny January 31, 2011

    Its rarely about talent….. Its about having the “it” factor and RIhanna has that.

  18. DUMMIES January 31, 2011

    “LOVE how you say Beyonce better watch her back ..meaning rihanna is in BACK of beyonce … good job boo

    &tell ya girl to step ha s*** up cuz she was and still is stiff as f***”

    LMFAOOOOOO ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Basically…

  19. DUMMIES January 31, 2011

    …Kenny what “IT” Factor does Rihanna have?……

    I’ll wait………….

  20. Kenny January 31, 2011

    I would rather have 7 #1 singles then so sales at all…. ask Amerie, Tearri, Keri, Ciara, etc.

  21. Vosha January 31, 2011

    Amerie & Teairra Mari owned it! shame that the one that cant dance or sing better than either of them got the BIG Fame. If Amerie hadn’t taken that break she would’ve been big by now *sigh*

  22. DUMMIES January 31, 2011

    ….Uhhhh…You FAIL….

    .Beyonce does not have that many hits and look at her 🙂

    Teairra from the Start had more success than Rihanna……#FAIL

    Amerie is R&B Artist not Pop different Market and has had success…#FAIL

    Keri is a New Artist 2nd Album 5 #1’s and many Hits….#FAIL……

    Get the f*** outta here with that s*** Bruh ! ! !

  23. Kenny January 31, 2011

    @Dummies

    The “It” factor of being a star, why do you think Ciara, Keri, etc arent as big as RIhanna? Rihanna isnt buying up her own singles or albums, she is not playing her own songs on the radio constantly, she is not winning awards because she is giving them to herself, she is not posting her own stories on blogs asking people like yourself and mine to comment on her name… so to me she has something these other chicks dont have. Read your comments and listen to the tone of your comments, you seem very pressed and hatered towards a stranger who is living her life not knowing we exist but we are spending our valuable time typing her name.

  24. tay January 31, 2011

    this proves that TM should have been bigger. TSK

  25. DUMMIES January 31, 2011

    …And Ciara has had success as well…Don’t try regardless if I like ciara or NOT…The B**** has had many #’1’s Sales Records Etc…..

    Ciara OWNS the stage….

    Rihanna owns a Purse…H** please 🙂

  26. Simhanna January 31, 2011

    K! @ LOOOL LOVING THE RIHANNA STATS

    CLEARLY A PERSON MUST HAVE TALENT IN ORDER TO BE AS SUCESSFUL AS RIHANNA IS

    A PROMO TEAM CAN ONLY BE SO GOOD, IF THE ARTIST IS NOT TALENTED OR WORTHY THEN WHAT IS A PROMO TEAM REALLY PROMOTING? EXACTLY!

    WATCH TOMORROW, THE SERVER ON THIS SITE IS GOING TO SHUT DOWNNNNN
    AS SOON AS S&M DROPS TOMORROW, OVER 300 COMMENTS AND WHAT NOT!!!

    REMEMBER I TOLD YOUUUUU 🙂

  27. dboy January 31, 2011

    i dont want to get in the middle of a stan war but the fact that rih fans have to post stats in response to this performance just shows that her critics are right, others post fierce performances of their favs but that’s never the case with rihrih

    like i said, am not starting nothing ….am saving it 😉

  28. DUMMIES January 31, 2011

    …So an opinion is hate????

    Like really?

    ….YOU CAN’T COMPARE AN ARTIST THAT HAS 5 ALBUMS TO AN ARTIST THAT HAS 2 (Keri)….Keri was and is a Songwriter and a R&B Artist….Wtf?…Are you Dumb or Stupid???…..

    Ciara….Has had success…Im done with you…Your an Air head….

    –Closed Convo–

  29. ICON January 31, 2011

    Jealousy hurts isn’t Sammy. RiRi slayed that performance. That was just her birth as a star.

    LMAO @ Dummie

    B**** please Keri is a flop ass wannabe Beyonce h**. She is so desperate for success she is flashing her bits to world and ain’t still working.

    RIHANNA4LIFE!!!!! And she will keep on slaying u haters one by one. 😀

  30. Kenny January 31, 2011

    @Dummies

    You already failed when you decided to talk about RIhanna.

    Ummm, Beyonce has been in this field for over 12 years, Rihanna 5-6 so you would think someone who is a veteren in their field would garner more than a newcomer. Yes, look at Beyonce she has managed to only sell about 20 million albums worldwide since 2003, but she’s an icon right? Rihanna sold about 16-17 million albums in 6 years. Beyonce has #1 albums but each album declined in sales, whereas Rihanna comes in top 4 and has great sales overtime.

    Tearri may have started with more success but can we say that now? Tearri cant even release a single to radio… Started is different from Present and Future.

    Amerie- is cool but her songs sounds the same, and being R&B shouldnt matter because if she had a strong fanbase her albums should sell.

    Keri may have had #1’s on what R&B charts, but where is her album now?

    A talentless person cant garner the success Rihanna has, she is not the best singer but its enough that you’re listening….

    Your points are garbage.

  31. ciara January 31, 2011

    this was hot garbage i need to listen to the regular song or i would never listen to this again. wth left jay z in charge to pick artist for this performance.

  32. Curtis January 31, 2011

    DEAAADD Where these b****** at now!?? RIHANNA REIGNS!!!!!

    But in all honesty I LOVE Teairra and Amerie but RiRi is an international b**** and has shat on DC3’s acheivements and is the most global pop star on the planet. NOBODY is doing impacts like her on a worldwide level aside from Lady GaGa

  33. u-jealous January 31, 2011

    RiRi looked so cute with her little baby voice!

  34. Bubbles January 31, 2011

    Yess @Kennt you better preach! Clearly no one is here for Amerie, Ciara etc basically the lesser gwarls because they are just not captivating. Simple as.

    And f*** a Teairra Mari, it ain’t s*** and the rest of the world agrees with me. Who would have thought the stiff island girl would shut down the ghetto fabulous girl with so so vocals and the pretty biracial songstress with talent? CLEARLY Rihanna has “it” otherwise you pressed chicken heads wouldn’t be here chatting s***.

  35. Lifee January 31, 2011

    I thought TRENT was the only Perez Hilton wana-be…

    GUESS NOT!!!!

  36. Mari January 31, 2011

    I think S&M is going to drop tonight. I’ve got my smelling salts ready so I can be revived after Ri slays me.

  37. Jayden January 31, 2011

    Ameriie is a better singer & performer than both of them
    she performed TWICE that night check out her performance of “1 Thing”
    she was giving Beyonce a run for her wig collection back then

  38. KAT DELUNA FAN January 31, 2011

    Teairra is really talented.Is God unfair ????

    Amerie will always be my 2nd Beyonce.She is good !

    I MISS THE DC3 TOO …AH “EMOTIONS” my jam

    Why are you mad at Rihanna when you guys (trent & U) post more about rihanna than any other person on earth?

    Teairra is about to drop 6 videos to promote her mixtapes but none of you will post it anyways.

  42. Jayden January 31, 2011

    & Ameriie’s songs dont all sound the same
    I hate when people say that
    Listen to her albums before you post s***

  43. @youdigmypersona January 31, 2011

  46. @youdigmypersona January 31, 2011

    and no shade while im sittin here watchin it again

    amerie looks real mature next to the rest…TEARRA should def have had the career she had the most stage presence to me

    rihanna looks the same way in 05 as she do now.. LOST a little Lost GOAT.

  47. SOFUCKINRUDE January 31, 2011

    YESSSSSSSS RIRI WILL KILL IT TOMORROW WITH S&M VIDEO LESSER TAKE NOTES 😉

  48. tones January 31, 2011

    did somebody just say Loud is the 5th best selling female album since 2005, um, I guess the fact the I’m Not Dead and Funhouse by Pink, Circus by Britney, Back to Basics by Xtina, As I Am by A. Keys, The Emancipation of Mimi by MC, The Fame and The Fame Monster by Gaga, Fearless by Taylor, B’day and I Am… Sasha Fierce by Bey and Goodies by Ciara have all out sold Loud and Rihanna’s own album GGGB have even out sold it as of now, I’m pretty sure Loud will sell around 6 million WW and that’s more than only 3 of the albums I mentioned.

  49. lax January 31, 2011

    RIRI WORKED THE HELLOUT OF THAT MINI SKIRT SHE WAS WEARING SHOWING THEM MILLION DOLLAR LONG ASS LEGS OF HERS.
    @ RIH THEM PAYING HOMAGE:A/H THERES A SONG THAT HAVE SOME LYRICS THAT SAYS SOMETHING LIKE ,,,EVERYTHING MUST CHANGE, NOTHING STAYS THE SAME,,,, THE YOUNG BECOME THE OLD,,,,,,, SO YOU STAY YOUR ASS TUNED SUGAR,,,,, AND SEE WHOS THE HBIC,,,IS GOING TO BE,,,,,,,,,,,,

    my fav video is SURVIVOR

  51. Muni January 31, 2011

    I miss DC3 but I want KELLY ROWLAND to succed with her solo career first. Hopefully 2011 she will be able to show how talented she is now that she has new TEAM KELLY.

    BUT
    I
    MISS
    DC3 even

  52. KaVion January 31, 2011

    I was just watching this tribute yesterday! Thats crazy.
    I think it’s kind of funny to, how rihanna was so awkward in this yet she outshines all of them now. She knows how to play the game. You shouldn’t be though Sam, this is what God had planned for Rihanna, not Teirra & Amerie

  53. SOFUCKINRUDE January 31, 2011

    #SnMPremiereAlready I CANT WAIT ANY LONGER

  54. tones January 31, 2011

    I also find it weird that all 3 of them were on Def Jam Records and that Teairra Mari’s and Amerie’s careers both tanked after this and that Rihanna who had literally just came out like 3 months before the awards show became the biggest artist out of the 3 of them

  55. Yellow Gorillah January 31, 2011

    Who are those other girls performing with Rihanna ? =/

    Funny how rihanna is the only B**** out of them three to make it looool

    Rihanna has the IT factor that is why she slays she is just so captivating her looks and voice hate it or love it she made it the rest never

    Rihanna should not be categorised with lesser girls like Ciara, keri, mari because she has achieved and improved so much since this,

    I still think if rihanna plays her cards right she will SNATCH the Queens WIG *Side Eye*

    S&M COOOOMMMIIING OUT IN A HOT MINUTE I PREDICT 500 COMMENTS!

  56. sane beyhanna stan January 31, 2011

    People love to throw around this whole “beauty over talent” b*******! Isn’t amerie very gorgeous, is TM not a beautiful young lady? Ok then there ALL beautiful so stop that B.S! Rihanna probably has the least amount of natural talent but the b**** got something about her that’s made ppl buy her s*** over the years. If your that upset that “more talented” poeple are now irrelevant while rihanna still stacking chips support ur faves more!! #that is all#

  57. Muni January 31, 2011

    I am f****** tire of no talent people. This generation of singers just sucks let bring back good music with KELLY, BEYONCE, BRITNEY, BRANDY ETC…..

    new artists rely too much on videos come on GIVE a BREAK

    LET’S SHOW SOME TALENT!!!!

  58. Maya What January 31, 2011

    Wow it’s amazing how things change so fast. Teairra Mari was under Jay Z Rock Nation and was suppose to be the next big thing that’s why she had the lead. Rihanna was just coming into her own and hadn’t achieved the success she has now. Amerie was just starting to ridde high on her music. To me Amerie out shined them both with her dancing and stage presence! Amerie will always be my little Beyonce love her. The girl is so talented, smart, s*** and stunning! Jay Z dropped Teairra Mari and took Ri Ri under his wing and blew her up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. RIHLUV February 1, 2011

    @DUMMIES AND S7JAM====>B**** CUZ ITS OBVIOUS BEY IS THE TOP BUT ITS ONLY CUZ SHE GOT MORE YEARS AHEAD===> RIHANNA IS COMIN FOR HER ASSS===BELEEE DAT–AFTER THIS ALBUM DONE, THERE WILL BE A NEW QUEEN..HER NAME IS ROBYN RIHANNA FENTY= AND SHE WILL REIGN SUPREME LMAO..SIT C**** AND OBSERVEEEE

  61. D.Strock February 1, 2011

    Rihanna was looking hella cute though.

  62. Gilberto February 1, 2011

    Muni,

    Talking about Kelly, I think she really did a bad a move when she fired Matthew Knowles and moved on for a new management.
    With Matthew, she always had few couples of hits charting. “Like This” even charted in US and it turned into a urban hit. She had worldwide hit single with that remix of “Work”, it did pretty well in Europe, Oceania and Asia. And her first album “Simply Deep” was pretty well received in the international market.
    With this new management, we don’t even know what’s the album’s title! And that’s pretty dumb move, ’cause she had started to promote “Commander” when there wasn’t even a date of releasing her third album. And we still don’t know what’s the album’s title, what will serve as its next single and when the album will be released… Actually, will it be released someday? It doesn’t seem like.
    THAT’S F****** MESS.

  63. RiCiBey(Breezy) February 1, 2011

    Amerie was amazing! I will always be a fan
    Teairra Mari killed it as well.
    And Rihanna was just okay here..

    I remember Rihanna and Teairra Mari coming out around the same time. Teairra was suppose to be the next big thing. When Jay-Z would do interviews, everything was Teairra. He couldnt open his mouth without saying Teairras name. Then all of a sudden, Teairra is dropped and its all about Rihanna. Me being a Teairra fan, I would love to know what really happened with that situation….

    rihanna can’t reach beyonce’s status in the industry simply because RIHANNA CANNOT SING HALF AS WELL AS BEYONCE
    millions of number 1s and album sales can’t change that so in rihanna’s words “set your standard lower boy,you aiming too high”

    Yass, Ameriie & Teairra SLAYED RIH! People don’t see talent, they see numbers & I agree with Maya What. I feel like Ameriie outshined them both. She performed, sung, & dance. She had her on pizazz. Like she put her stamp on the performance that was like, ok 2 girls, & them Ameriie!

    @ Dummies
    You already failed when you decided to talk
    about RIhanna

    Ummm, Beyonce has been in this field for
    over 12 years, Rihanna 5- 6 so you would
    think someone who is a veteren in their
    field would garner more than a newcomer .
    Yes , look at Beyonce she has managed to
    only sell about 20 million albums
    worldwide since 2003, but she ’ s an icon
    right? Rihanna sold about 16 -17 million
    albums in 6 years . Beyonce has # 1 albums
    but each album declined in sales , whereas
    Rihanna comes in top 4 and has great sales
    overtime.”
    ___________________________________________________

    Normally I would ignore the idiots who are busy posting stats, but I have to correct this foolishness . First you say that Beyoncé has been in the game for over 12 years, and then say she “only managed to sell 20 million albums worldwide since 2003”. Well fool, this is the year 2011, not 2015, so 2003 was eight years ago, not 12. Beyoncé has sold 20 mil as a solo artist, so if you’re trying to count her album sales from the entire time she’s been in showbiz, then you have to include her days in DC, and that means counting the albums she sold with them. Don’t make it seem like she’s been sitting on her ass doing nothing since the late 90s until 2003. Second, Beyoncé may have been here longer than Rihanna, but she has released fewer albums (as a solo artist, since we’re only counting the 20 million albums she has sold). Three albums vs Rihanna’s five and as you say, with fewer number ones. Now you do the math as to whose album sales look more impressive. Third, you are wrong that Beyoncé has been declining in sales with each album , because IASF outsold B’Day. Next time you try to defend your fave using numbers, make sure you come correct with FACTS, not lies or deliberate exaggerations, mmkay?

    RIHANNA IS NOT TRYING TO REACH BEYONCE STATUE, BEYONCE IS A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW. RIHANNA IS INSPIRED BY BEY AND SINCE WHEN WAS THAT A CRIME. WITH BEYONCE HAVING BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY AHEAD OF MANY LIKE RIHANNA THEN THAT MAKE MANY YOUNGER ARTIST LOOK UPTO BEYONCE AND FROMWHERE I AM THATS A HONOR. RIHANNA HAS HER OWN LANE AND SHE IN HER LANE AND GUESS WHAT??? RIHANNA’S CAREER IS ALREADY SET IN CONCRETE/STEEL SHE WILL BE IN THE MUSIC HISTORY BOOKS AND THERE’S NOT A DAM THING ANYBODY CAN DO ABOUT THAT.
    YOU CAN SAY THIS ONE AND THAT ONE WAS BETTER TIL THE WINTER TURNS INTO SPRING AND RIHANNA WILL STILL BE TOURING/ENTERTAINING AND DOING HER THANG. LIKE HER PERFUME IS THE BUSINESS IT’S OUT OD SIGHT !

    …And Ciara has had success as well…Don’t try regardless if I like ciara or NOT…The B**** has had many #’1’s Sales Records Etc…..

    Ciara OWNS the stage….

    Rihanna owns a Purse…H** please

    YASSS & I agree w/ Jayden tell them! & GILBERTO r u ok? Kelly did better without Matthew. Just because her 2 singles didn’t do that good didn’t mean she’s better off. Maybe it just wasn’t right @ the time. Because as soon as She left Matthew she had a #1 WORLDWIDE hit single. & that made people really know her, & made her big & a solidified name/brand. Kelly is shinning so much without Matthew. Not firing Matthew would be the dumbest move ever.

    I just shut you down with FACTS and you have no further argument to counter mine. Thought so.

    @ Dion-ish:

    And can Rihanna dance any better than Bey? No, so the stans are within their right to criticize. Besides, what would you know about dancing if you honestly think Britney is better?

  89. Gilberto February 1, 2011

    Beyoncé is on the game for 14 years and she’s still relevant enough to be compared to these new hot b******.

  90. sane beyhanna stan February 1, 2011

    Now that I watched the video I can admit that as a WHOLE the performance was decent and solid not great but it was nice. If you judge them individually yess they all hit the right notes but I feel as though amerie had the most confidence and did the best. TM was ok I don’t feel she did beys part any true justice but she was cute trying lol. Rih was kinda stiff and unremarkable. She had little stage presence, dancing was mediorcre. And her voice was actually almost enjoyable. I’m glad she’s upped her game though.

  91. Kenny February 1, 2011

Beyonce is a far greater Performer than ALL of them combined. Those other B****** are just STATIC.

  93. Keesha February 1, 2011

    *DEAD* at Ciara owns the stage, and someone else owns a purse! *DEAD*

    Anyway, I remember this! Unfortunately, I haven’t really liked any of their music since their first singles. Well, “One Thing” by Amerie was okay, but other than that…

    And I don’t really miss DC, I actually miss TLC, En Vogue, SWV, 702, and Total.

    she is standing off in a large body of water out of the country wearing the hell out of a two piece bikini looking like the mega star she is,,, she is living her dream
    life and that is so wonderful. mom used to tell us if you work you will eat good
    and if you don’t work then you have to eat whats in the kitchen and it just might

    @TRUE BLUE YOU’RE CORRECT

    BEYONCE HAS ONLY 3 SOLO ALBUMS AND RIHANNA HAS 5-6 ( PUTTING 2 OUT A YEAR TO STAY RELEVANT) WHAT ASHAME

    THATS WHY I LOVE THAT BEYONCE DOESN’T OVERSATURATE HERSELF BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T NEED TO

    RIHANNA TEAM WANTS A #1 ALBUM SOOOO BAD, THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT SINGLES THAT WHY SHE HAS TO KEEP RELEASING ALBUMS BACK TO BACK SO THEY CAN SEE A #1 ALBUM WHICH SHE HAS NEVER HAD, I GUESS THATS WHY HER PEERS DON’T TAKE HER THAT SERIOUS

  103. lax February 1, 2011

    i wonder why is there somuch put on a persons ability when there’s no two people that is the same. and almost every other person gave rihanna a F on the video and themn they start the comparison. well if allof the others was so darn great you would not have to repeat it overand over again. beyonce is working her b*** off to stay in the game and i love her work ethics and i am glad that rihanna is developing/and have great work ethnics. and rihanna has great work ethnics.
    while so many people tries to tear the young mega star down and many of your comments will not stand up in court aganist rihanna. she has got what the industry is looking for in a artist of this DECADE. she is making history and
    breaking RECORDS and all of you s*** talkers already know that and it pisses you off when some one says that they like rihanna. thats when many of you tries to
    discredit each and every thing that rihannas does thats good. dam i am glad that none of you aree connected with the people that writes her pay checks.

    These Rihanna stans are ridiculous. As soon as someone starts questioning her “talent” they start bringing out Stats. Record sales don’t equal talent and until you figure that out you will forever be lost. Marketing teams, the right writers and the right producers can do wonders for a person. Just because you like something doesnt make it great.

    Talent-wise Amerie is loads better than Rihanna but she wasn’t able to get that big break that she needed. There are a lot of tlented people that never make it big.

    No Trust me, Rihanna’s Team defiantly CARES about SINGLES & A LOT!!, they need every single Hit they can get to sell her mediocre album sells. Rihanna is unable to sell albums off Name & Reputation alone (Like Beyonce), the proof is in her 1st week sells.

  115. RIHLUV February 1, 2011

    BUT HONESTLY U CANT COMPARE GAGA AND RIH OR GAGA AND BEY BECAUSE THEY ARE DIFFERENT MARKETS AND ARE NOT THE SAME RACE—RIHANNA AND BEY IS MORE COMPARABLE BECUASE THEY ARE THE ONLY BLACK FEMALES IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW THAT ARE SHITTING. SO WHEN I SAY SHE IS ON BEY’S HEELS , U BETTER BELIEVE IT..ALSO BEYONCE DOES NOT SELL INTERNATIONALLY LIKE RIHANNA–JUST A KNOWN FACT!…SO I FEEL BAD FOR BEYONCE WHEN THE DDAY CUMS THAT RIHANNA COMPLETELY SHUTS DOWN HER PERFORMANCES…CUZ THEN ITS A WRAPPPP….”NOW IMA WRAP YOUR COFFIN WIT A BOW”!….EVERY KNOWS RIHANNA IS BECOMING A BIGGER STAR THEN BEYONCE…AND IS DOING MORE THAN HER IN HALF HER TIME..MY B**** IS A LEGEND…THE ONLY CARRIBEAN ARTIST TO MAKE IT LIKKE THIS==JUST ACCEPT THAT AND DEAL WHORESSSS

    KELLY did great leaving the old management,

    First of all COMMANDER and FAAD werent released in US at all and yet COMMANDER reach #1 on Dance chart without promotion. top 10 in UK and to 20 in EU charts with little promo.

    The reasons why the label didn’t spend a lot of money promoting the singles is:

    The album direction has changed and KELLY fell the need to comeback to RnB and more URBAN sound OK?

    GET ready to see more of MS KELLY in 2011 and you guys have no idea what she is bringing this time is HOT!!!!!!!!!

    Bey sells well internationally also & also in the UK (& WITHOUT a Re-Release). & stop giving Rih all that Credit, yes they are both very successful but Rih is no where near Beys LVL in anysense. They are incomparable If only forthe simple fact that Beyonce is a WOMEN & Rih is a little GIRL.

  127. KofL February 1, 2011

    @DION-ISH
    Truth hurts, get over it. Just because you and other people likle her doesn’t make her any good. I like a few of her songs but i’d never call her anything more than mediocre. You keep throwing stats at me, I’m not talking about how many fans she has or how much she has sold, I’m talking about talent. Show me something that proves she has talent. I doubt you will find anything but you can try

  128. S*** February 1, 2011

    @ RIHLUV

    My problem with you is You really need to SHOW SOME RESPECT, Cuz No matter what Rih achieves Beyonce will always be Bigger & Better & thats FACT & Wheres your MANNERS?? With No Bey as a blueprint for her career there would LITERALLY be no Rihanna. The BABY BOY Video was what Birthed Rihanna’s whole career!!

  131. Auntie Jackie February 1, 2011

    This is so cute. I can honestly say that both of these girls are more talented than Rihanna, but Rihanna brought something different—the ability to change and be molded. She has a unique voice that fits to more than one type of song, she can be a pop artist. These other girls don’t have that, and the label saw that. That’s why they invested in Rihanna. They saw the potential for pop hits, and she’s making them!

    Teairra & Amerie are just as adorable as Rihanna, but more about the voice than the image. Their label saw them as R&B–and didn’t invest in their image. Too bad!

  132. Kenny February 1, 2011

    Wonderful comment 😀 no more needs to be said

    As for LOUD, sales for that album are decreasing and decreasing each week. It had huge sales @ one point, selling 500k a week WW. But there truly is no more hype surrounding that album anymore.

    I Dont think Rihanna is that much bigger of a star then beyonce….there both international. Kelly and Michelle, maybe. not Bee.

    Beyonce is slightly bigger in the USA. Rihanna is slightly bigger in Europe and other foreign countries

  144. KofL February 1, 2011

    @Kenny
    You misunderstood my comment. I meant that with the right people, rihanna seems a whole lot better than she is. They try to give the illusion of someone with talent. (I said try) But if a person already has talent, their people dont need to do any of that.

    @S*** THE ONLY REASON BEYONCE IS AN ALBUMS ARTSIT IS BECAUSE OF RELEASING EVERY POSSIBLE SONG AS A SINLGE AND POMROTING IT TILL NO END.

    SHE HAD 7 SINGLES OF HER LAST ALBUM AND RE RELEASED IT, DAMN IF BRIT DID THAT HER SALES WOULD BE THROUGH THE ROOF LMFAO!! BEY DOES MORE PROMO THAN ANY OTHER ARTIST OUT THERE

    I see, I see. I understand what your saying, its easier with someone who has the right tools in the tool box to start construction versus someone who ill prepared. Rihanna may not have all the tools in her box but she is well on her way like others, and her songs are fun… honestly between Britney, Beyonce, Gaga, Rihanna, etc none of them have songs to last for decades, only jingles for the moment.

  154. Beyonce: Her name alone defines greatness February 1, 2011

    Beyonce has ALWAYS had the best of BOTH worlds when it comes to her album sales. Thus, will always sell more

    Dont you have a WACK song to go Download H**?? I dont know whos the most oblivious B/W you Kyle & Rih-luv. IASF only had 4 WW Singles(Halo, IIWAB, SL, & Sweet Dreams) The Rest werent required & was only released to occupy Urban Radio in the US. & was NEVER Re-Realesed, The Fame & GGGB- THESE are re-releases. & the reason why BRIT doesnt get to realese a lot of singles like Bey & Rih is because all her S*** sounds THE SAME, there is nothing new with Brit’s BASIC Pop Sound, just your everyday TYPICAL Pop & she lacks the Hits & Grammys Bey & Rih Have & Bey sold MORE than S****** with 80 Million Albums & 140 Million records.

    OH YEAH,,,,I REMEMBER NOW I WAS GOING TO SAY THAT RIHANNA IN THAT VIDEO WHICH WAS IN 2005 AND IT’S 2011 NOW THAT MEANS THAT RIHANNA WAS ONLY 16 YEARS OF AGE .SHE HAS A BIRTHDAY COMING LATER THIS MONTH BUT SHE LOOKED POISE, CHARMING, FASHIONABLE, AND THERES SOMETHING EXTRA SPECIAL THAT THE GOOD LORD SPRINGLED OVER RIHAMNA.
    AND JUST THINK RIHANNA STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM UP.

    JUST LOADS OF RAW DETERMINATION AND WANTING TO ACHIEVE AND BEING
    COMPARED TO BEYONCE MORE THAN ANY ONE ELSE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD
    OR ON THE DAM PLANET AS FAR AS THAT GOES. RIHANNA IS A GO GETTER
    AND THE MORE PEOPLE TRIES TO TALK HER DOWN THE BIGGER SHES GOING TO GET.

    AND ANOTHER THING IF YOU DON’T LIKE RIHANNA WHY FOLLOW HER POSTINGS AROUND THE NET TO SLAM HER ARE TALK BAD ABOUT HER.
    THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE TM GO FIND HER SITE AND BLOG AWAY, GO AND FIND AMERIIE AND BLOG ON HER SITE AND WHEN YOU SEE A RIHANNA POST SINCE SHE HAS NO TALENT WHY EVEN WAISTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME. WHY

    Woooow memories!!! Teairra def owned the stage on this and she has a voice, Amerie did good as well and this reminded me of Rihannas Music of the Sun era,

  163. Kenny February 1, 2011

    Isnt Beyonce expected to sell more than Rihanna being that Beyonce was established years prior to Rihanna’s entrance? I think Beyonce’s sales are bigger for the simple fact that she was in an established group with other females, when the group ended she was able to take some fans along with her… she didnt start as a solo artist.

    I give props to Rihanna because her family didnt have money to put her in shows/contest/etc when she was younger, Rihanna’s father wasnt taking her around to different labels trying to get a deal… Rihanna did alot of this on her own without the help of Daddy. I think Rihanna is very successful for her not being an American, how many non Americans come here and fly high on top? Sometimes I think white people go easier on their own then us blacks, many cant stand to have more than one person on top.

  164. KYLE February 1, 2011

    @S*** BRITNEY OUTSOLD BEYONCE DURING THE LAST DECADE, AND DEAD AT U SAYING BRITNEYS MUSIC SOUNDS THE SAME!!!! ON CIRCUS THERE WERE VERY DIFFERENT SOUNDS SHE EVEN EXPERIMENTED WITH TRIP HOP SOMETHING BEYONCE COULD NEVER DO HUN

  166. MusicMaster February 1, 2011

    At that time Jays intentions were to make Teairra the next Beyonce and she got more promo than Rihanna did. After Rihanna scored a #1 hit with pon de replay and her album sales went up and Teairra practically stood still, Jay dropped her and went on with Rihanna.
    Then a couple of months later Rihanna’s 2nd album dropped and that album had soooo much promo!! Rihanna was everywhere haha. btw I miss DC3 too but Beyonce is better solo I adore Bey she’s the best =]

    I really love this site guys! keep it up

    um bey starting working on her album in sept,,,,,,,,,and for rihanna’s number ones,,,,,,,it’s only cause the label force those pop somg up her ass,,,and beyonce has a 50/50 deal with her label where she can do what she want and make the same amount of money off her records as the label,,,,,,,,,

  168. KYLE February 1, 2011

    @CRAMPED YES WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, BRITNEY WENT ON TOUR AND OUT GROSSED BEYONCE BY 30 MILLION DOLLARS, AND BRITNEY ALSO GOT HER 5TH NUMBER 1 ALBUM, PLACING HER IN THE GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS, AND SHE SOLD 5 MILL WW WITH MINIMAL PROMO.

    WHILE BEYONCE DID AN INSANE AMOUNT OF PROMO RELEASED COUNTLESS SINGLES AND BARELY SOLD 7 MILL. SUCKS FOR HER.

    Kelly and Michelle of DC, NICOLE of PCD are 3 flops who were part of very successful girl groups. So your point is?

    Dont come and discredit beyonce because she was part of a girl group.

    @rihluv

    i dint read all ur comments in caps but i dunno what growth ur talking about, that she has PA sticker on her album now or what cus her range hasn’t widened and she shasn’t polished her vocal techniques if anything it’s been ridiculed with machines, u know her voice was autotuned entirely on disturbia,

    honestly this rihanna vs beyonce debate is the dumbest in the world, who you love is your prerogative but BEYONCE IS SIMPLY BETTER THAN RIHANNA AT EVERYTHING AS A MUSICIAN, :

    1. vocal ability
    2. performance skills
    3. awards/accolades
    4. international superstardom
    5. album sales
    6. dancing
    7. endorsements
    8. annual revenue income
    9. creative input
    10. artistic control

    beyonce as solo artiste has spent more weeks at number 1 with 5 singles than rihanna has with 9 singles

  181. MusicMaster February 1, 2011

    @Kenny

    I agree with you but Beyonce came out in the 90’s, wich was a time where it was still possible to send a press-kit to a label or to go by and audition with the possibility to get signed. When Rihanna came out in the 2000’s in that time (and still right) you had get discovered in order to get signed. Wich is a case of being at the right place at the right time. All of this was just destined to happen for Rihanna and it’s truly a blessing.
    And Rihanna did enter talent shows and beauty contests. she won a beauty contest when she was 9 or something..

    what’s so bad about waiting til fall? if she comes out early, yal will say she’s afraid to lose her relevance or overexposed blah blah bla and now she’s taking her time, yall still complain thank God beyonce releases music for her fans not haters cus yall cant make ur mind up

  193. the kiddz February 1, 2011

    I honestly don’t understand the comparisons. It’s foolish, they both have different appeals. Rihanna fans tend to like her image more than anything else. She seems like a down ass chick. But, there is room on your mp3 for both. You guys go through this EVERYDAY.

  194. Kenny February 1, 2011

    @Music Master

    It was just as hard in the 90’s, thats why Beyonce use to talk about getting rejected and not being able to secure a deal. The music industry is tough to get into period. Rihanna’s father just recently stated that they really didnt do much for her career, she really got into it during high school when she sang a Mariah song and won a contest at 13… she wasnt being groomed for music like others at a young age.

  195. CRAMPED February 1, 2011

    @KYLE – Beyonce Promo wasnt insane during the IASF era like you claiming – she NEVER did any promotion (performances,appearances) in Europe prior to IASF release. She only started promoting lately 4wks b4 – now I’m seeing the lesser gurl coping her promotion style lol.

    ISAF was extremely sucessful compared to Circus (Awards, sales etc). and her tour was successful too with raving reviews and no one walked out on her!. Britney lipsynching Spears tour grossed well and thats the only thing u can brag about nothing else.
    You better Stan for the lesser gurls Britney peak and prime is well over!

  196. hp February 1, 2011

    a good girl gon bad would be siting pretty at 6.5 nillion without that good re-release,o and her sells shot up when she got that ass beat,,,,,,,i gess britney should have got f***** up to help her sells……

  197. sane beyhanna stan February 1, 2011

    Lmfao! This whole arguement is seriously hilarious to me. Bey and Rih Co-rule the industry together! Its hilarious to pit them against eachother they have NO similarities other then being black. Hell even their ancestry isn’t similar. Bey stans look dumb because Rihanna hasn’t been along nearly as long and isn’t on beys level but is in her own lane. Rih stans sit down because Rih at one time was called a mini bey by most and is inspired by beyonce clearly. Rih is not there yet so both stan groups# Sitdown# ugh

    @Dion-ish

    we are being pitted against each other, this causes tension… look at the response you get if you comment on Rihanna or Beyonce. Why is that? I remember back in the day Janet, Whitney, Madonna, Chaka, etc were not being compared to each other… we embraced them all because this was our music. Now you cant like both, we have to choose which side and its terrible. I like some of Beyonce’s music but she is not my cup of tea, I was actually turned off when I noticed the lies about song writing, etc but thats another topic… Rihanna’s music is fun, s***, poppy, etc.. im not looking for brain surgery. At the end of the day when I go home, im not thinking of any of these chicks because im enjoying my life and my fruits.

  202. CRAMPED February 1, 2011

    I think it was alot harder to get a deal 10 yrs ago and if you compared the talent 10yr ago to whats around now you’ll agree.

    @kenny

    beyonce fans don’t pit her against rihanna, it’s the other way around

    WHY?
    beyonce is the yardstick for every black pop/rnb singer that comes into the industry, everyone else has been compared to beyonce; jordin sparks, chrisitna milian etc. i recall rihanna being dubbed bajan beyonce early in her career. if it’s loving video is a carbon copy of baby boy video. rihanna changed her image on GGGB (fairplay)

    beyonce is the one to beat but she simply the best in this generatinon

    Um L O U D is currently doing well WITH NO PROMO. Its close to 3million ALREADY….A year or so from now with S&M and other singles coming it will sell more. She hasnt done ANY major award show besides the AMA’s. She has plenty of time…

    And the music industry in 2003 vs 2008-2009 was a totally different time. Sells are at a decline as of recent due to the rise in popularity of illegal downloading. Beyonce’s solo debut was DIL if im not mistaken and it was highly anticipated and she was the s***. Everybody loved Beyonce then! NO LIE.

  209. DION-ISH February 1, 2011

    DEF Agree. I am not impressed by her vocals, she sings like a damn convalescent.

    She CAN sing, but shes nothing special. If it were Rihanna it would’ve been “oh she sounds horrible” just because some are over critical of rihanna’s vocals based of Trent and sams perception and constant comparisons to SOUL vocalist such as Mariah and Beyonce.

Rihanna can actually BELT a great Tune & make you forget for a second that shes not a singer, Gag cant do that, she will REMAIN Bland & un-impressive & the B**** needs to learn to let that TIRED piano Act Go.

    Atleast we can agree on something, I cant find that Vid concert cap of Rihanna doing this impressive Belt in one of her songs, It was either umbrella or Unfaithful but it was a great note. Lady gaga is a MESS in everyway & compared to gaga I do think Rihanna CAN sing.

    stick for all to go by now then who was beyonce’s yard stick SINCE I KNOW THAT BEYONCE CAN STEP EVERY STEP THAT TINA TURNER EVER TOOK, TO A “T”.
    so who is beyonce’s yard stick?????????
    BRITNEY SPEARS IS THE ONLY FEMALE TO SELL 1.3 MILLION ALBUMS IN THE FIRST WEEK. AND SHE HAS DIAMONDS FLOATING AROUND HER AND HER SALES AND SHE WAS 80MILLION AND NOW SHES @ 100 MILLION BY HER SELF. FUNNY HOW SOME TALKS ABOUT US AND STATS BUT YET THEY ARE FOR EVER TALKING ABOUT BEYONCE’S SALES HUH ,,,,,COMPARE BEYONCE TO SOME OF THE ARTIST THATS ON HER LEVEL LIKE BRITNEY, PINK,,,GAGA,,,
    BEY IS A OLD PRO AND GIVE RI SOME MORE TIME ON THE CLOCK AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.!!!!!! IT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW BUT BEYS FAN/STANS HAVE THEIR BLINDERS ON AND THEY REFUSE TO TAKE THEM OFF AND OPEN THEIR EYES WIDE SO THEY CAN SEE.

    Rihanna didnt sound bad at all…. your just a sad person who attacks rihanna for no apparent reason.

  258. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue February 1, 2011

    @ Dion-ish:

    Uh-huh, you go on literally EVERY Jessie J post to say “What is this Snow White on crack-looking b**** doing in my face?” and I’M the sad one? There’s a difference between stating an honest opinion and being plain annoying, you never have anything constructive (good OR bad) to say regarding Jessie, you just repeat the same tired phrase.

    Saying that Rihanna didn’t sound good in this performance isn’t “attacking her for no reason”, it’s having an honest and legitimate opinion. Just because you don’t agree doesn’t make it less so. Now if I went on every Rihanna post saying “What is this big forehead doing in my face?”, then you would have a point.

  259. Auntie Jackie February 1, 2011

    @Dion-Ish

    Talent is singing on key, and having a stage presence. Both of which, Rihanna consistently FAILS at.

    She’s special, no doubt, and she did a good job on this performance just like the other girls did a good job. The b**** doesn’t do a lof of things well consistently, but that’s no shade to her. I still see the things about her that make her a viable, popular artist and make her stand out more that these two.

  260. DION-ISH February 1, 2011

    @AUNTIE JACKIE

    Thats YOUR opinion. That doesn’t make it a fact. if that was a fact 90% of rock/indie artist are non-talented in your eyes.

  272. DION-ISH February 1, 2011

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    She said while singing “on key” seemingly talking about perfectible vocal work….When most DONT go or abide by any of that…they just naturally go about it. While also having stage presence, which im sure she would find 90% of them boring and couldn’t sit through a Rock in Rio Festival because there not the type of performers that appeal to Beyonces audience.

    Rihanna may not entertain her, but she’s very versatile as a performer and could entertain most. i Would say she’s like a mixture of them all. She incorporates choreo but also goes about it in her own way. Such as a Rocker.

  273. the kiddz February 1, 2011

    @Kyle:

    But you’re saying she doesn’t sing live, because she’s an entertainer. Umm….Beyonce, Mariah, P!nk, and even Lady Gaga sing live and they are entertainers. Your definition of an entertainer is very flawed if you think all they do is armchoreography.

    @Dion-Ish

    But, that’s such a bold assumption. You don’t know what she listens to. I’m a Beyonce fan, but I love Opera singers like Joan Sutherland. And I’m having a hard time seeing Rihanna as a rocker. Rockers are passionate with their delivery, you can feel the anguish from their vocals and delivery. They don’t think, just feel. Rihanna still has a ways to go before she can find her performance style, now it just seems like she’s experimenting.

  276. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue February 1, 2011

    @ Dion-ish:

    Those are some very big assumptions you’re making on Auntie Jackie’s part. She didn’t specifically say what a good singer/performer must do EXACTLY to be considered talented in her eyes. A lot of rockers who sing imperfectly are still better vocalists than Rihanna, and most are better performers as well.

    Also you’re making sweeping generalizations about Beyoncé fans. I’m a Beyoncé fan, and am a fan of a wide variety of rock musicians. Hell, I know some rockers who are Bey fans themselves, so what are you saying about them?

    Rihanna doesn’t measure up to most rockers as a singer OR performer, so don’t even with that comparison.

  277. DION-ISH February 1, 2011

    @THE KIDDZ

    Rihanna is Passionate with hers as well. Shes very Engaging, and adds energy and presence, and i love how she performs.

    Rihanna is not a rocker, shes a pop star but her delivery is rock-ish, hip hop-ish with dance.

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    Im Sorry but Most Beyonce fans generally think that way. Rihanna deliverance is DEF rock-ish because its not perfect but she gives it onstage.

    Beyonce fans consider that beneath Beyonce, not talented, boring etc.

    An advent fan of Rock Festivals…Rihanna DEF turns them out and does fantastic because its more her style, her arena. Beyonce’s arena is more Award shows, events etc.

    And saying Rihanna is THAT bad of a vocalist/performer is popostruous dude…your doing TEW much…because ur opinion is fine BUT truly nobody thinks that!

    I Guess Bon Jovi was just another idiot to think Rihanna has great vocals and loves her delivery, as well as Adele.

    And i may be shooting myself in the foot with this BUT i just LOVED this performance…tho she seemed drunk and out of it (lol) i Love the energy, the eccentric-ness of it all and esp how she incorporates Nuno and the other guitarist in it at the 2:00. its just more my style…

  285. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue February 1, 2011

    @ Dion-ish:

    Have you asked “most” Beyoncé fans their opinions on rock stars? If not, then you’re merely making unfounded generalizations. Rihanna does NOT represent the rock genre at all, so a Beyoncé fan finding Rihanna an untalented singer/performer does not mean they will feel the same way about rockers.

    I think you trying to place Rihanna in the league of rockers is just merely you trying to give her extra cred and make her seem above other pop performers. And you’re entitled to that, but it doesn’t make her any better as an artist.

    Also, hasn’t Cheryl Cole performed at rock festivals? And hasn’t Britney Spears performed with Aerosmith? That really doesn’t mean much.

  286. the kiddz February 1, 2011

    @Dion-Ish

    You’re welcome and lol she did seem a little tipsy. And in regards to Bey, most of her fans (who stan for her voice and credibility as a vocalist) want her to do a rock record, a REAL rock album; with big instrumentation and soaring vocals. She has done rock rendition of her songs…Freaking Dress (I Am Tour) and If I Were A Boy. She is very keen on blending every genre into her sound. But I would just die if she did a Jazz album.

    So you just totally toke my comment out of context? Ok.

    And i wasnt talking about the fact of her performing at rock festivals. Im talking about her deliverance and her overall appeal and hows its more her arena.

    And Britney Spears is EPIC period. Was that suppose to be Shade? Britney has also performed with MJ. She has a more respect then some would think. And i could kind of see were your going with the shade BUT Rihanna sings live. Just like Britney can attract fans of all time also in artist ranging from Aerosmith to Lily Allen. Rihanna has that affect from Bono/Bon Jovi to Adele etc.

  289. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue February 1, 2011

    ^^^ I would die if she did a jazz album, too. She has enough clout to do what she wants creatively, so she should go for it. I think she can do much better than the three albums she’s done so far.

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    Ok Whatever. but i will say, i think you reach a little harder when it comes to Rihanna because your not fond of her at all. so you’ll find anything to negatively say. Truly she is NOT as bad as you pin point her out to be. AT ALL.

    I like her music, just not her live performances. And I do give her credit where credit is due. Go look through the archived posts about her performances at the AMAs and X Factor, and read my comments on them.

    I don’t dislike her personally because she’s never done anything for me to find her distasteful as a person. Obviously you and I have different standards for live performers, so we’re not gonna agree on what is a great performer.

    honestly, amerie is overhyped – she is not as good as everyone is saying… rihanna is able to outsing her all the time – the thing with rihanna is – she is able to develop – you can not compare her voice now with that performance – she would have not been able to perform a song like russion roulette during 2005

    as for teairra – too bad she is not as successful, but i guess she lost the point to establish herself as an individual – she is just another boring rnb chick

    I like all of the ladies but Riri just knows what she is and uses that to do what she does. I mean she has very smart people around her and they pick the right songs for her voice. She is smacking b****** over the head right now and I ain’t mad at them.

    But Bey didnt promote her last album that hard at all, She let the music sell itself. Trust me, If Beyonce wanted to she could have been 10Xs more Exposed & then the haters would really be mad.

    Like for real? Let be real now – Bey was doing Single Ladies from the Subway Station to the White House – she dropped 2 singles at time each time. I love Bey but I refuse to be delusional. LMAOOOOO!

  306. gabs February 1, 2011

    Rihanna didn’t do that bad up there. I really am getting tired of all the shade she gets. Shes not a bad live singer at all. Shes polarizing like Shakira and Alanis Morisette in that way. You either love the weird yodeling or you dont. I just don’t get why they did Lose my breath as a tribute. There were so many other options. Anyway, for those talking about album sales, If Rihanna only released an album every 3 years, they would sell more, but since she does one like every year people see no point in buying it unless they’re real fans. Why bother buying it if you know there will be a new one soon, it doesnt feel special

  307. Beyonce: The Queen of Pop & Soul February 1, 2011

    @Dionish

    When I spoke to you last, we were talking about Bey doing rock and what The_Kiddz said is right. Remember who is HER “mom” in the industry(Tina Turner) and the music that TT did(funk first and then Rock-Soul next).

    We have an album discussion on bwboard that’s over 300 pages and the album hasn’t come out yet so we have a lot of discussions on what kind of album that we would like to see. And as for the fans wanting Bey doing a full jazz album, we have been talking about since the B’day era. Listen to his Fela Kuti/Swizz Beats mix, especially GMB: http://rapradar.com/2011/01/31/swizz-beatz-x-dj-runna-swizz-beatz-vs-fela-kuti-pt-1/

    And it is interesting that she has said that that her new album is inspired by Fela Kut, along with other artists.

    I really thought that the tribute needed a little work, it was very mediocure. They weren’t in sync and I don’t know if it’s me, but it just came across as a bit competitive. It was almost as if they were more set out performing each other instead of a sense of unity. I never really cared for Tierra Marie. She’s like that girl in highschool that’s not a knockout, but far from unattractive… yet, still very conceited. She’s not very graceful and she’s too prissy to really work a stage. She may be underrated, but she’s certainly not my cup of tea. Amerie is the best out of the 3, she has the most raw talent. She’s got the total package. Looking at the “old Rihanna” makes me have so many conflicting thoughts. On the one hand she has grown into her identity, she much more comfortable in her own skin and she delivers on that image and mood that she’s trying to portray for her audience. That’s a plus, but she’s lost that spunk and vibrant energy. I suppose I prefer today’s Rihanna because she appeared to be lost and in need of guidance before, but I notice she was more active when she was younger.

    Off topic, I don’t know why people swear that Beyonce’s fans are so disinterested in other female artist. There are so many great ones that can before her and a few that are her peers. I think we get a bad rep for that. I’m sure that there’s only a few that walk around with such a smug attitude. Most Beyonce fans are lovers of music and I find that they love variety from my own personal expeience!

    The only reason why she has all RiRi has all those hits are because ppl wouldn’t know talent now if it dropped kick them. Plus why stan for an artist who has no talent. Yes she has no talent because if you stripped her make up and hair and gave her an american idol style audition she wouldn’t get the ticket to hollywood i.e (ciara,kesha,britney, or katy perry). RiRi just has good marketing and that’s really how she’s doing plus payola like mariah

    Amarie didnt do s***..as always. Terirra was kool and u can certainly see that rihanna has grown vocally since this performance.She might not have the best voice but shes does her thing. These dudes here sound like b******! this website is hot do-do

    Im so sick of the rihanna slaves flaunting numbers. The only thing r****** is killing is roaches!! it cant sing, dance, produce, or even come up with its own fashions! Atleast the other girls can atleast do 1! Its only a puppet! Bey, Xtina, Britney, Gaga, Amerie, Keri, Ciara etc all s*** on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This was a shitty performance, but I still love DC2 (BEY and Michelle) Rihanna has really step her game up since 05 what a transformation.

    This performance was a mess! I think that Teairra is just any ol black girl with a common black girl voice, but she actually sounded good during that performance and had attitude. Rihanna… I actually liked her when she was clean and innocent and she used to be so pretty. Aww, her singing was so weak and babish but she looked so cute! LOL at her trying to dance. Amerie killed it! OMG her voice is so lovely! I just love her tone. It’s extremely unique and very light, soft, R&Bish and soulful. She was the real star. It’s a shame that Dc broke up because of BEYONCE! How selfish?
