Rihanna Defends Britney’s ‘Nasally’ Voice On ‘S&M (Remix)’

Published: Sunday 17th Apr 2011 by Sam

As if Rihanna and Britney Spears‘S&M’ remix wasn’t comical enough, the red-haired star has hit out at suggestion that Spears sounded “nasally” on the track. How ironic.

While calling in to 92.3 NOW FM to promote the collabo, Not Beyonce was bluntly informed by host DJ Lil Cee that masses aren’t feeling Spears’s contribution to the record – regardless of its iTunes standing.

Check out her hilarious response after the jump…

Kudos to the interviewer for keeping it real. Now if only he’d told Ms. Fenty she sounded like a cat being skinned, we’d really be on the same page.

    Rihanna sounds great on S&M, Britney however, does not.

    Rihanna has a unique tone to her voice and has a stunning and effortless vibrato. If she wasn’t successful or couldn’t sing, she would not have 9 #1 singles in the US and would NOT have a record deal. :). Rihanna is amazing.

    “A cat being skinned.”

    There’s only so much passion & emphasis I can put into the words: I CAN’T..
    LMFAO

    Sam you know you’re lying! Rih’s studio voice is amazing, Lol!
    I hope she can keep giving us great performances like California Kung Bed on Idol. Maybe she’s actually growing as a artist.

    I’m proud of her!

    @AARON
    No shade, but Rebecca Black has a record deal…

  4. Aaron April 17, 2011

    @Kavion

    I don’t know who Rebecca Black is.

    The Britney S&M sounds WHACK!!!!!!!!!

  10. Aaliyah April 17, 2011

    Britney has sounded better, yes. I just don’t understand how anyone would let a STUDIO track of Britney sound so bad…. I mean, we know neither she nor Rihanna sound great live. However, the latter seems to be making progress. The Rihmixed track seems so poorly done and manufactured in the sense of just adding a verse quickly just to earn some money. Wish Britney put more heart and soul into the things she does. Lately, she’s been so boring despite having one of the best albums of 2011 so far. “Femme..” could have been so great, just if she made an effort.
    I think S&M will be nr.1 next week (unless if they count the original and the remix as two separate songs). It will most likely not hold that position however. Maybe for two weeks. Gaga is coming back with the recycled beats and the same old repetitive lyrics. Seems that die hard stans are really doing their job with “Judas”.

  11. kay April 17, 2011

    LOL at “Not Beyoncé”

    So true, she is nowhere near the Queen.

    Anyway, the remix really sucks, such a step down from the original.

  12. therealest April 17, 2011

    and whoever wrote brits lyrics……are just NO.

  13. UGh April 17, 2011

    I like the original version of S&M. But let’s be real people, if Britney was selling s*** on a platter people would buy it up. Rihanna’s gonna defend her because no.1 it’s Rihanna’s song and we don’t expect her to say it doesn’t sound good and besides it would be unprofessional for her to say it. no 2 Rihanna often sounds nasally herself in most of her songs. The remix is a hot mess #FACT

  14. Nick April 17, 2011

    I luv Rihanna! Britneys mix was cute, it’s not that serious! Did u see Katy perry on amas last year doin firework live? They all have their moments, Rihanna is growing! Love her

  15. Sane Beyhanna Stan April 17, 2011

    I agree that Brit didn’t sound too good on the remix. The Rihmix is growing on me but I still prefer the original. I think Rihanna will continue to improve but I think Britney has Plateaued in her career.

  16. OSO April 17, 2011

    RIHANNA IS BECOMING A F***** LEGEND YALL!!!!

    that American Idol was heavenly good, she’s confident now, and her voice has improved big time!
    she got a standing ovation for god’s sakes.
    she’s really giving it her best, this era can’t get any better (can it !? )
    SLAYING EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE!
    proud of her! #Rihannavy!

  17. xtina April 17, 2011

    gaga and beyonce are somewhere laughing at this stupid remix

  18. Ms.LInda April 17, 2011

    I feel as though the way Britney sung certains words or more so pronounced “sticks & STONES” she was trying to give it “umph” and it came off corny. They should have kept Rih’s vocals on the hook and left Britneys take on the cutting room floor, it did nadda for the song. Like it or not Rihanna brings something to tracks that make them hot, THIS BEING CASE IN POINT. What I find hilarious is that Britney was quoted saying that the one song she wished she had done was “Love the way you lie”, now could you IMAGINE that travesty? I shudder at the thought.

  19. xtina April 17, 2011

    @ OSO

    Legend??? R U Kidding me??……………… Bey and gaga r coming you know

  20. xtina April 17, 2011

  21. OSO April 17, 2011

    @ XTINA
    yeah you read right!
    she’s killing the charts everywhere…S&M is even higher than “BORN THAT BAD” on the charts…
    Rihanna is the new pop queen.
    Deal with it…
    Floptina has never, and will never…sad to break it down to you

  22. tru April 17, 2011

    someday Defscam is going to get tired of spending money on a No Rhythm having
    SexGoat didnt even have the coutesy to thank Britney for her contribution
    just twisted it to make it sound like Britney was “so lucky” work with the Only goat on the farm
    Truth is
    Rihgoat is the lucky one

  23. theman April 17, 2011

    Britney did a decent job on the song, it wasn’t that serious.

  24. Dave April 17, 2011

    Dead @ hims sounding nasally himself. They can be a trio: Rihanna, Britney, & him

  25. Dave April 17, 2011

    DEAD @ Rihanna lying for her.
    & saying “High Register”, she doesn’t even know how to use a high register successfully herself. Dead @ her sounding like her stans “it’s still #1” fail..

    thats right RIHANNA defend your honor, because baby girl you are worthy.
    the song is a banger to start with, therefore being who BRITNEY is all the
    yapin the world will not stop the song from flying off the shelves.

    s&m has already kicked major booty, by bringing RIHANNA up to par with
    the top #1 pop singles & tieing her with dance hall #1 with BEYONCE.
    and its funny how the STATS & NUMBERS don’t count and don’t mean crap
    with RIHANNA and it counts for all the other artist.

    when ever a album, cd etc is dropped by any of the artist the best thing going for
    that artist is first weeks sells and can they go #1 with their ALBUM. it has been widely talked about the fact that RIHANNAS ALBUMS HAS NEVER GONE #1
    why is that a much talked about topic with RIHANNA & many bad mouth her for not going #1 but yet she still sells. on the other hand all the haters was laughting when gaga over took s&m remix & is sitting @ #1. and WHY IS IT THAT RIHANNAS #1 DON’T COUNT when the numbers of grammies, sales, stats on
    every artist on the fuuuuking planets numbers ALWAYS COUNT WEATHER THEY CAN SING GOOD, BETTER ARE BEST???????

    S&M have been out 4 10wks now and it still has not made it to #1 on BB and dat WACK ASS remix is not goin 2 help it get dere either…… now all Rihanna has 2 do is explain y she sounds HORRIBLE LIVE………now dat would b a great interview!!!

    wow Rihanna defends britney’s voice.The Apocalypse is Coming!

  34. Blue Kid April 17, 2011

    Rihanna team is smart, by teaming her up with Britney Spears, they where hoping, just maybe Rihanna could snag some of Britney Spears fans/stans, since Britney is on her way out the door.

    Little do they know Britney fans are on their way of being Lady GaGa and Beyonce fans/stans and neither one of them has song with Britney and probably never will. Rihanna team has put her every where including with the country music singers, to entrap fans/stans. We will see how well they have done come her next albums sells. Rihanna fan base is shrinking slowly, as the pity is washing away. All the studio gimmickry in the world is not going to get her a bigger fan base. Rihanna is at the top of her game, a good studio voice is not going to help, she has to come up with a new gimmick.

  35. Rihanna the Queen April 17, 2011

    Rihanna is the Queen of pop, ya’all can just go jump into an ocean If you wish, nd did i hear anyone mention Lady gag gag, Floptina nd beyonshit????? Lmfaooooo thos are old cargoes, flush dos shits downnnnn!!!!

  36. Mr. T April 17, 2011

    It being in a high register has nothing to do with the fact that Brit sounds like s***.

    But why are we acting like this something new?? What song does Brit sound good on?? She cant sing, and she knows it.

    And PLEASE stop with American Idol performance. Rihanna sounded like s***. Im sorry

  39. Rihanna the Queen April 17, 2011

    Did someone just say Rihanna’s fan base is shrinking?? Oh Lawd this must be a joke, Rihanna’s fan base is increasing because people have grown to love her more than ever , shez got over 30million fans on facebook, where is beyonce at? Basically 17million or so Lmao, wake up from your delusions cos Rihanna is shitting on all of u haters, u can deal wid it or die trying !!!!! #ILikeItLikeIt. Nd to say she did the RIHmix to take Britney’ s fan is like the most comic thing to ever say, Lmao Britney has no less fans compared to Rihanna so its the other way round! Rih has sold almost 4million copies of Loud nd still counting,2 #1 singles from off LOUD nd still counting so ya’all jokers can dig a grave for yourselfs haaaaaaa!

  42. anon April 17, 2011

    Sam and Trent you both so obviously want to bum each other that you use your dislike for Rihanna to the max to try “impress” each other. Its like watching two kids in a school playground. Its EMBARRASSING. Get over it and take your ass licking somewhere else and get back to be the semi professional site you once were. Oh FYI Trent is using you for exposure Sam. Man up.

    @Aaron

    Milli Vanilli had a deal and was highly successful, but they were no where near talented. Britney Spears has a deal and she is barely talented. So that point you made iswrong. Although I do agree Rihanna is talented.

    Anyways,

    Let’s have Rihanna duet with Beyonce. My two favorites on a track would just slay my life completely.

  48. pau April 17, 2011

    thanks rihanna!!!! so cute <3 i like the remix but i prefer the original song. i need a new track rihanna&britney!!!

  49. Rihanna the Queen April 17, 2011

    @Mr. T, that’s just the crude figure of the one you see, Lmao apparently we shdnt base gaga’s fans on facebook nd stuff too??? Lmfaooooooooooo, okay what figures shd we use to base the fans on? Maybe the # of pple that visit them at their homes! Lmaoooo!
    @beyonceshit Knight, Beyonce isn’t active on facebook??? *appalled*,does being active on facebook affect ur fan figure??? Apparently Michael Jackson is active and alive on facebook that’s why hez able to have over 30millions fans Lmaoooo! , btw to kinda correct you Beyonce updates her facebook account regularly just as other celebs do, fact is pple aint got time to pay attention to old Mrs Carter anymore she only used her 2 back up singers(Kelly Rowland nd Michelle) to rise,nothing more !!!!!

  50. Te Amo April 17, 2011

    i agree with alot of you guys that s&m wasnt britney’s brightest moment and im not a rihanna stan like alot of yall but she gets props because for her to stand by britney even though im pretty sure riri thinks it dont sound that good just shows that she has alot of respect and shes rooting for brit to hit hard again i know alot of yall were and still are bumpin britney songs and thats what this is all about britney is clearly trying to make her mark in an industry thats changed since she started and with her having support from heavy hitters like rihanna and nicki minaj im sure that she will get better and everyone talking s*** right now are going to be teambritney i mean i cant stand that lil white girl sometimes but she’s trying and you dont knock ppl who try

  58. BREEZYTHEBEST April 17, 2011

    This remix was not the business.I have no idea why Rihanna needed Brit on this song.Rihanna slayed the song and video by herself SMH.because I don’t take s*** personal with Riri this girl is fierce but she will never be a boss b**** because of s*** like this.If Rihanna was to take her s*** to the next level she can be on Bey’s level she is getting there but not quite.Whoever got a problem with my comment f*** you and sit your ass down ,btw california king bed is my s***.

  59. Blue Kid April 17, 2011

    @ Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie)

    RateR should have been a number one album, Rihanna did not have any competition that week in sells.

    Loud, should have been a number one album again Rihanna had no competitors in that week of sells, plus she just came off a world tour and had just rapped up her United States tour and had more promo than any artist in that year.

    New Comer Nicki Minaj, with hardly any promo and no world tour, lets say no tour at all, sold way more album in her first time than Rihanna sold for her RaterR and Loud combined. WTF!
    Rihanna with her pity party, nudity, and furious promos did not out sell new comer Nicki, come on now. Even the most hated man in the world out sold her, give me a break. We will see com November when her next .99 cents album comes out, we will see how well it sells.

  60. BREEZYTHEBEST April 17, 2011

    BTW Brit is a legend but she needs to reevaluate her position in the game long gone are the days of Kings and Queens forever.Anybody can be snatched bald at this point in the game nobody is immune to this s***,nobody.

  61. Badd April 17, 2011

    This is an absolute mess.
    The only reason that she even made a remix
    was to get the song to #1,
    Because it wasn’t going #1 on its own.
    Katy would have been #1 again this week then Gaga.
    She just wanted to cheat another one in there
    by putting out a poor remix…with Britney so it would sell.

    This is why I don’t think Rihanna deserves all her #1’s
    I like her songs and she is okay…..but she’s about
    to get 10 #1’s and that’s ridiculous…especially for
    someone as lackluster and who’s songs are either
    features or only stayed #1 for a week….showing
    that it just went #1 in this “between time*
    after the last #1 has died down and the next artist’s
    song is coming out the next week (which is happening
    to S&M now) making her songs only go #1 b.c
    that’s all that’s left.

  62. Blue Kid April 17, 2011

    Rihanna needed Brit for this song because she wants Britney’s fan base. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out.

    They have been putting Rihanna all over the place trying to snare fans, they even put her with the country music folks. ROFL!

    All of Britney’s fans are not wack, those are the ones who are choosing to follow, Lady GaGa and Beyonce.

    How many concerts can one lip sync to and people still fill the seats????
    How many bad concerts can one go to with a stiff performer???
    How many bad concerts where s** is used to entertain for lack of talent??
    Both of these women fit the bill, I said both Britney and Rihanna!

    Britney didn’t sell no more than the most hated man in the world did, a mater a fact they would have been tied if they would have came out in the same week.

  63. lax April 17, 2011

    a number 1 album do not mean squat its not about how you start out on the race
    its all about finishing. if a number 1 album is the talk then why is it important for her album to hit that #1 position??????? why is it that she have got 9# 1 hits
    i said hits because for a single to hit #1 people have to buy your music therefore her #1 proves that she is moving them units. all of her albums has made it to the top ten and that is good enough for me and mannnnnnnnnnny others. rihanna
    is still breaking records and making history. EXAMPLE she has a # 1 for five years in a row in the uk thats HISTORY thats doing it like ELVIS DID IT.

    _______________________________________________________________________
    @BlueKid

    Sit your pressed ass down. Rated R openend against SuBo’s debut album, the Fame Monster, and Adam Lambert. SuBo was #1 that week. Where the hell were you?

    Loud openend against Christmas albums by Oprah favorite/ and America’s Got Talent phenom Jackie Evancho and SuBo. SuBo was #1 that week as well.

    And props to Nicki for doing higher numbers with her debut album than Rihanna did in the US with her 5th. what, I’m supposed to be mad? Yeah, Nicki’s US sales really trump Ri’s 4M WW sales total (not). nicki is a new artist and should sell well. talk to me about Nicki dominating Ri when she’s five albums deep in the game and accomplished half of what Ri has. Comparing the two is real desperate on your part anyway, because one is a rapper, the other a pop star, and they’re not even in the same lane.

    I know Ri’s slaying right now, but you don’t have to be this upset . . .

  65. Branson113 April 17, 2011

    @ Aaron she has really cute songs thats why she has 9 # 1’s. She really can’t sing, she sounds like a cat thats been run over by a car! Cute songs tho.

    jesus please let the so called most hated man in the world please rest.
    if some feels that the talented most hated man in the world beat britney out then stay tuned because BRITNEY SPEARS AKA BRIT BRIT always has a rabbit in the hat. the REMIX is a good thing for both of them. looking @ the global charts shows that both r&b sold good this passs week. so if you want to always think that some one is being hated on then WALK a mile in RIHANNA FENTY SHOES>

  69. Blue Kid April 17, 2011

    I hope Rihanna S&M with Britney does goes number #1, I will be laugh out loud. Rihanna deserves to go down in history, she is one of the least untalented, worst performer, least vocal quality, black entertainer of all time who has gotten 10 number 1’s singles hit. ROFL!

    For has a black person holding the record on number 1 hits, that goes to Mariah Carey she has 18 number #1’s.

    Ayumi Hamasaki has 30 number 1 singles, Rihanna has 20 more to go to beat her.

    @Badd

    Sour grapes. Sour grapes. We don’t know yet, if S&M will go to #1 definitively, but need I remind you that E.T. reached #1 with a combined sales total of the album cut and the remix with Kanye. Arguably, S&M would have been #1 by now if not for the combined sales total of Katy’s two versions of E.T., which at one point were both top ten on i-tunes, because S&M has been leading in airplay for weeks. Cee-lo’s two versions of F*** You (explicit and clean) had combined sales that got the track to chart in the top 5. Oh, but when Rihanna does it, everyone wants to have their mouths poked out.

  71. Blue Kid April 17, 2011

    @Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie)
    Save the excuses, Rihanna had a week to her self those people came a week after, save it! The week Rihanna went out she should have taken it by storm, now that next week no.

    Both time Rihanna should had nominated that one week, just like the most hated man in the world did, no excuses, Rihanna is a singles artist period.

    If S&M becomes number 1# she has 8 more to go to catch up with Mariah Carey, and she just may do it. Everybody knows a hit song cost money, Rihanna is not writing her own songs so this mean Def Jam is spending some where between 1 million & 4 million a hit. Rihanna is no Mariah Carey, Mariah can actually sing.

    I wish Rihanna well, she will go down in history for being the black female artist who brought down Britney Spears. Rihanna laughed at Britney 2008 MTV awards and so rightly so, because she is now taking over that spot. Britney is a has been, Rihanna is the new Queen of Pop. Britney can now retire.

  72. Y’all are too fake April 17, 2011

    The Monster Ball has already out banked & out sold everything Rihanna has done for touring. 4th Richest Woman on Earth (Music Wise). Beyonce is 3rd.
    Britney & Rihanna = Poor Man’s Beyonce & Gaga

  73. WINTZZZ April 17, 2011

    Rihanna I love your sense of humour & loyalty! Errrbody knows Britney sounds like that red headed kid, chuckie, from the Rugrats on that S&M remix but u stuck by her regardless and I can appreciate that. I, myself thought the remix gained nothing from Britney but the Flu! I prefer the original. Her other tracks sounds good though!

  74. Badd April 17, 2011

    @Mari
    exactly.
    you just proved that Katy is the white version
    of Rihanna they both make cute little songs
    that get played and go to #1 AFTER the big
    artists are gone….Katy only went #1 AFTER
    BTW was done and she then cheated her way
    to the top to by taking the remix off forcing
    ppl to buy the album version and getting that to
    top 5 then putting back on the remix so that she
    had to of the same songs in the top 5.
    Gaga doesn’t have to do the s*** that Rihanna
    & Katy do to get #1’s and she doesn’t go #1
    after every other artist has already died down.

  75. lax April 17, 2011

    some one is grasping after straws comparing rihanna to mariah but its all good.
    rihanna do not ever need to depend on what people say about her because if some are stupid & igronant enough to think that def jams have bought and paid for rihannas music i wonder why they did not and have not paid for some #1 ALBUMS
    for the super star?????

    if def jams was paying for rihannas #1 why did they refuse to pay for s&m to be
    a #1 by now?????? SEE theres many comments made and books wrote that are just not FACTUAL . to tell the truth people who are PRESSED will say/do
    anything to try to RAIN on her parade let me tell you something it aint happening.
    RIHanna IS KICKING MAJOR BOOTY RIGHT NOW. CHECK ME IF YOU DARE,
    HATERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  76. Badd April 17, 2011

    And another thing.
    @Mari what is your point with comparing
    the sales of all those ppl with Rihanna’s Rated R.
    Susan Boyle was NOT that big when her first album
    came out she was just a woman on XFactor.
    Lady Gaga’s album was a EP and they don’t usually sell.
    Adam Lambert……………….. *crickets chirp*
    But Rihanna had TONSSSSSSSSSS of promo
    She was milking the Chris thing and did that 20/20
    interview with the world watching her she did performances
    had Rude Boy out and everything…so she had no excuse.

    And as far as LOUD Susan Boyle was just coming out
    with a CHRISTMAS album an effin CHRISTMAS album.
    and she couldn’t out sell her even with 2 #1’s
    and Taylor Swift had already come out a month earlier.
    once again she had no excuse.

  77. Badd April 17, 2011

    @Lax
    I don’t think they pay for her songs to be #1.
    Payola is illegal.
    I think they just do sneaky little tactics
    to hurry up and get it #1.
    They don’t do things the normal way…b.c her songs
    aren’t good enough…they have to do something
    on the side…that other artists don’t have to do.

    I liked this interview, she handled it well! Especially at the end when she got him together “before you talk about Britney’s voice you need to fix yours.” I mean yeah Britney sounds s*** on the record but Rihanna isn’t gonna admit that, that would just be shady and mean especially when the song has a shot at going to #1 because of her.

  81. Sane Beyhanna Stan April 17, 2011

    I leave this post and now its a mess…
    @Badd Please stop with that payola bull s***! None of Rated R’s singles(except Rude Boy) got as much airplay as OG,WMN,and S&M because they aren’t radio friendly dumb ass so now that Rihanna has a Radio Friendly Album ofcourse all her songs will be Airplay hits that was the point of Loud dear. Rihanna’s song aren’t good enough to go #1? Considering you stan for Gaga that’s funny because BTW sucks ass, and Judas is a Rehash of Dance in the Dark and Bad Romance. Your fave needed Hype, Gimmicks and Huge Marketing strategies to get to #1 so don’t start. I will Drag Gaga through the mud. 🙂

  82. Blue Kid April 17, 2011

    @ Rarararrar

    I’m not True Blue, I believe “True Blue” is a Rihanna fan!

    When Lady GaGa and Beyonce did a duet it was sincere, they are each other fans, Lady GaGa already has her set fan base so does Beyonce, the two compliment each other.

    Rihanna and Britney are both puppet and Britney team no longer see her has profitable, her record sell are depreciating, Rihanna sing with and pretending to support Britney may give her a thumbs up from Britney fans. Tough luck with that one!

    @ bad i hear you but let me say this, i hear she sounds bad and this one and that one is better. point is why is it that lets say long ago when madonna, celine,
    mariah,whitney, barbara, toni, maryj came out there was always others who came before any of them, right? they all achieve SUCCESS @ different levels. some of then was better sold more and dah, dah , dah.

    then there was britney, xtina,monica, beyonce, ashanti, brandy,kelis and they all
    achieved different levels of SUCCESS right dah, dah,dah.. THEN HERE COMES
    still yet a different group of talented artist rihanna, gaga, adele, kesha, solange,
    jennifer, jasmine and the all have achieved SUCCESS and dah, dah, dah.

    i said that to say this theres no SINGLE one of these artist from these 3 GROUPS who has come under as much scrunity as rihanna, PERIOD. like i will use gaga for instance she has achieved more in her short time in the industry as
    many of the ARTIST I named and that is good there is no one saying that gaga
    slep her way to the top, no one. but when you deal with SIMPLE MINDED PEOPLE you get simple minded IDEAS, you hear me. like there will be people bitter over gaga’smuch SUCCESS just as they try to talk RIHANNA DOWN FROM THE TOPOF THAT PESTAL SHES ON AND IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ANY TIME SOON.
    IT HAVE ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED THAT RIHANNA IS ONE IN MANY WHO CAME FROM THE ISLANDS WHO HAS DONE REALLY WELL. JUST AS SHAKERA

    “When Lady GaGa and Beyonce did a duet it was sincere, they are each other fans, Lady GaGa already has her set fan base so does Beyonce, the two compliment each other.”

    The LIES and DELUSIONS! I can’t. Do you really believe that, hun? For one they don’t compliment each other at all, the collaborations looked forced,and they both only did it because they knew (or thought) that they would become big hits, just because their names alone would generate huge buzz. Don’t get me wrong I love Beyonce but let’s not. And the shade? Both collaborations failed to set the charts on fire. Clearly, the public did not buy it.

  86. JohnVidal April 17, 2011

    Britney and Rihanna are a disgrace to music but all things involved in this crap remix are even worse. There´s nothing good to say about it or about them. It´s so painful.
    I didn´t want Gaga to have another #1 debut cos it seems like it´s nothing and I would like only stunning songs could do it but right now I´m wishing she could do it with Judas again just so these puppet girls can´t have theirs. It´s difficult cos she has only 3 days on itunes but I so wish it. Rihanna doesn´t deserve 10 number ones. Hell she doesn´t deserve one single #1
    And please don´t even mention Mariah in this mess. Now I´m going to the talented people posts…

  87. monster_BRIT April 17, 2011

    E.T. deserves to have the #1 spot on Hot100 Billboard this week. Death Scam and Britney would’ve been fine contenders if they wouldn’t have made it it so painfully obvious how desperate they are for S&M (Remix) to chart #1. Besides, didn’t Billboard already put out an article saying Britney wouldn’t be credited for this song if it reaches #1? *falls out* They know this is their last chance for it to hit the top because the song has peaked on radio and is continuing to free fall down to #4 on iTunes.

    Next week it’s all about Katy and Kanye performing E.T. on American Idol all while Judas continues to get more spins on radio and continues its slay on worldwide charts. Judas Juda-a-a Judas GAGA!!

  88. Kyle April 17, 2011

    I personally think that Rihanna’s own version of “S&M” is 150x better than the remix. Britney does nothing for it and I agree with the overall consensus that Britney does sound super nasally on the track. Not a good look.

    Not even u believe what u just said ,beyonce and gagas duet was genuine and they compliment each other? I love bey but gagas fanbase is huge compared to bey and if u put it like u do then bey stand to gain more than gaga. A duet is a duet. If your assumptions are anything to go by then brit wouldn’t have linked with rihanna,unless u saying she is unbearably stupid which I doubt. Rihanna is doing what has always been there nothing wrong and she aint after anyones fanbase stop with the lies they make you seem desperate

    Britney sounds good to me and Rihanna is like always.
    The point is, S&M went to #1 on iTunes because of Britney.
    And it will take the highest spot next on Hot 100.
    It doesn’t really important for Britney,…at ALL.
    She recorded the remix just for fun, and the idea of Remix was from Def Jam and Rihanna’s fans.
    So why mad?
    I bet Judas will never top Hot 100.
    next week would be S&M, next two weeks would be E.T again…
    and Beyonce will take over (if the song isn’t crap).

    Rihanna sounds great on S&M, Britney however, does not.

    Rihanna has a unique tone to her voice and has a stunning and effortless vibrato. If she wasn’t successful or couldn’t sing, she would not have 9 #1 singles in the US and would NOT have a record deal.
    ***************
    If you listen to the song you can barely distinguish Britney Spears from Rihanna Fenty so stop the fairytales!

    As for Rihanna having a record deal well we all know what she did to acheive that feat …LOL! Say hello to Joe Camel’s little friend! 🙂

    In this age of digital media obtaining a #1 song isn’t all that amazing. Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can point , click, and purchase as song! *cough* DefScam, Rihanna, Beyonce’s pet camel etc!!

Oh and S&M remix horrible even tho is pushed the original song down the charts and then someone said it is because of Britney that the remix went #1

  103. KIM April 17, 2011

    It is so annoying when ping when people compared rihanna to so many talented artist out there who has mastered their craft and cemented their career. There is nothing special about this girl nothing. I must say she is not a great singer, not a great dancer, not a performer period. and what else i cannot mention anything else. I forget begging for number ones on twitter which doesn’t stay for long. yrs ago mariah and other had no twitter just their talent and make it to the top. Remember true talent is remmebered and survives but a no talent fails. Those mentioning icon and legend i will need a breakdown of rhianna contribution to the music industry which is exceptional to give her that title. I am not a fan of either but as an outsider some fans need to be more real and stop trying to rip of hardworking talented artist to give rhianna credit where not deserved. She is awful in concerts. The teenagers may return but the older adult swill not waste their time and i have heard it countless times ,some people will never attend her concerts. At 23 6 yrs in business and gimmicks surround you. If she doesn’t improve by 25/26 , i am sorry for her. in my opinion she is the least talented in the industry and carry on a survey if you really want to know.

  104. Alex April 17, 2011

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this site so much cause of the way they love to tear Rihanna down. Hahahaha!!!!! She is as talent-less as they come. Who cares about her anyways. As for people who keep saying she must be talented if she has all those #1’s and sells records. Anyone can have a #1 record ask Britney Spears and Kesha, both can’t sing. Rihanna sells records cause her company buys them. I mean 7 years and she’s barely sold 25 million records and 45 million singles? Lady Gaga has had one third as many #1’s as Rihanna and in three years has sold 23 million records and 61 million singles. She beat Rihanna as the most certified digital artist in THREE YEARS. 20 million plus singles in three years and it’s taken Rihanna what? 7 years to sell 18.5 million singles here in the US? Yeah talent always prevails dears. That is why Rihanna is going down down down.

  122. taylork April 18, 2011

    @ ms linda—

    i think rihanna and britney’s style on this song had umph! i don’t think britney came across as corny at all. i think britney’s nasal tone also helped give her part that umph.

    her nasal sound’s not new. she sounded just as nasal on hiam when she was droning thru the line “hey over there, please forgive me”. if you wanna talk about corny this and ttwe are as lyrically lame as they come (you feel like paradise and i need a vacation tonight…pleeze!).

    at least the s&m lyrics don’t make britney sound like she’s singing to a bunch of preteens. i usually don’t care for britney (although ‘big fat bass isn’t bad’ ) but i must say when it comes to s&m “i like it, like it, like it”!

    I’ll be honest, I didn’t buy it but the criticism the song is getting is way overdone. I don’t find it as bad as Trent and Sam think it is. Not sure why they did the remix since S&M had already been out but whatever.

    What the f*** are you talking about? Rihanna is a nice singer but surely has no vibrato.
