Rebecca Ferguson: “Rihanna Is A Bad Role Model”

Published: Thursday 24th Nov 2011 by David

 

Last week saw Pop Royal Rihanna and Neo-Soul upstart Rebecca Ferguson take to the X Factor UK stage to perform their respective singles, ‘We Found Love‘ and ‘Nothing’s Real But Love‘ and to say the performances were polar opposites would be an understatement.

For, while one allowed her voice and the music to do the talking the other opted for pre-recorded vocals and aimless choreography.

Now Ferguson has spoken out on what she thinks of her soon to be chart rival and her creative cause.

 

Her comments below…

 

She told Yahoo:

I wouldn’t let my daughter watch her. As a woman, I want to teach my daughter that a man should love you for who you are.

They should love you for you as a person, not for how you dress — and you don’t have to be a sexual thing to a man.

 

Adding:

She can  say ‘I’ve got no kids,’ but if you want that lifestyle and you want that money, ultimately you are influencing generations and you have to remember that. They will copy you. Popstars should think of their audience.

 

Rebecca- you’re being really unfair.

How dare you criticize Rihanna for doing the only thing she knows how to.

With vocal skills slimmer than Kim Kardashian‘s chances of finding true love and rhythm as mythical  as Naomi Campbell‘s hairline, ‘sex appeal’ is really the only thing Ms. ‘Umbrella’ has got going for her.

In case you didn’t get the memo- let us be the ones to tell you that when it comes to ‘influencing her fans to do better’- both Fenty and her team are just not interested.

Yes, though it should be  the mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters who influence the younger generation, there is no denying the power Pop stars like Rihanna have when it comes to shaping certain ideas held by their fan bases.

As the age old saying goes, beauty fades but  talent is timeless.

Thus, anyone critical of Rebecca’s comments may have to mince their words when her debut album ‘Heaven‘ hits stores December 5th.

Your thoughts?

    And the bashing begins….

  2. ARYO November 24, 2011

    haha, thats why i love rebbeca

  3. twosilk November 24, 2011

    Says the 24 year old single mother of two kids. And the one who was f****** with the little boy from ‘One Direction’

    B**** sit down!

    Parents need to teach their children the difference between a performer/performance and real life, and they’ll be fine. The irony is Rebecca is the one with the real life which is less than wholesome.

    Now I’m not knocking single mothers but she needs to think about her own life before judging people.

  4. Ms Lovely November 24, 2011

    She’s right. Rihanna is a terrible role model. Poor Rihanna thinks not wanting to be a role model makes a bad ass chick. Unfortunately it only makes her look stupid and contrived

  5. KD November 24, 2011

    Waits for the usual classless C**** (Truthteller, JJFAN) to come and bash Rebecca and call her flop.

  6. TruthTeller November 24, 2011

    LMAO

    First,Rihanna said that herself, so why is that news?

    Chart rival?
    Yall stay dreaming.
    What rivality?

    Rihanna is about to shut her out with a
    #1 single for a 6th wk (longest running #1 since….. Riri’s Umbrella)
    #1 album with over 150k.

    TGJ i desperately tryna hide the huge WORLDWIDEsuccess of TTT.

    TTT’s debut week WW is gonna crush 4closure. Femme Fatale & ANY FEMALE DEBUT THIS YEAR OTHER THAN 99cent Gaga

    And TTT is sold for $13 to $15 in the USA & $19-$27 in Europe.

  7. twosilk November 24, 2011

    @truthteller

    Shut Up! Yes, Rihanna is about to shut it down but this isn’t about sales. The reason people don’t take fans of some artists seriously is because they are always bringing up irrelevant s***.

    Stick to the topic at hand, there is plenty to say on it.

  8. TruthTeller November 24, 2011

    Rebecca is indeed a flop in her private live & in the charts.
    That s how needs to worry abotu her 2 out of wedlocks kids.
    Maybe she thinks being a rold model i f****** teenage boys while having out of wedlocks kids.

    LMAO

  9. Official Music Junkie November 24, 2011

    @twosilk she’s not knocking Rihanna, she is stating that as a worldwide performer/celebrity you have to understand, accept and more importantly respect your core fan base. Rihanna makes music that sounds like it’s for 10 year old kids yet her image is for horny teenage boys and her attitude is that of a 16 year old rebel.
    As Rihanna and the Navy always state, parents should raise their kids and don’t let the TV or celebrities raise them; so by Rebecca NOT allowing her kids to watch the likes of Rihanna, I say she is doing a damn good job… regardless of her being a 24 year old single mother of 2.

    A certain sect of people were very vocal about celebs keepin it real yday on tge Keri post. I hope yall still feel the same.

    More slaps across the face awaits u if u a rihanna fan. Girl is a sinking ship (im not a hating its a figure of speech) and if @truthteller posts no1 stats from today till his feeble mind hits maturity, salvation will still remain outta sight.

  11. brian b November 24, 2011

    Much as I agree with what she said, I also feel like she is the most influential figure in the lives of little girls and she should try be more responsible

    BBUUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTT

    SHUT THE F*** UP, what is it with these celebs dissing each other in public like it’s ok. It was a personal attack on Rih when it could’ve been used as an opportunity to educate and voice an opinion!!! If you see something bad as a parent it is ur responsibility to use it to teach ur kids about how not to be.. Don’t let the media raise ur kids

  12. TruthTeller November 24, 2011

    She needs to worry about her 2 out of wedlocks kids.
    Maybe she thinks being a role model is f****** teenage boys while having out of wedlocks kids.

    LMAO

  13. brian b November 24, 2011

    And on another note, Rihanna fans are so obsessed with numbers and receipts (we all like to see our favourite dominating) but you people are so ignorant to the facts… You come up with numbers from Lord knows where and then spit it out like fact, where the heck are all these numebrs coming from?? More than 150k worldwide but she will sell more than 4 first week?? Beyonce sold almost 500k world wide first week, calm down and stop spreading lies

  14. Johnny November 24, 2011

    Rihanna, or any musician, are not to be role models. She’s a singer and that’s that.

  15. Bey’knight November 24, 2011

    Hey at least we know she wont be a Leona 2.0 personality-wise

    @truthteller

    Dead at u tryna come for a harmless Rebecca, she’s just being a responsible mum. If someone else did their job, maybe u wouldnt be on here battling tooth and nail in defense of a talentless pop package

  16. Lax November 24, 2011

    Now this is one time that i want riri to step right up to the plate and have a hound dog fit on ms rebecca because people have to know that rihanna is a artist first and if rebecca is right than there is but one question and that is rebecca: Hey rebecca what about all of the other people in the entertainment industry, don’t you want to tell the world that they or not role models too,,,LMAO it don’t get any better than this for comic moments in the blogsphere people love helping to give our fave all of the spot light, amazing thanks rebecca thank you very much you have made my day.

  17. YOOSONDALOOSE November 24, 2011

    She is right, but nevertheless I still love Talk That Talk.
    Rebecca musically isn’t as great for me.
    But okay.

  18. Remey November 24, 2011

    Was this necessary? Did she really have to vocalize this? If she wants better for her daughter, just go ahead and do the things you set out to do. She didn’t have to vocalize this. She knew this would give her some NEEDED attention, which she needs at the end of the day.

    I don’t have a problem with what she said, and I’m a Rih Stan. However, this is what makes me so upset. People give artists way too much credit and influence. Rihanna is not the problem…the Parent is. I know plenty of girls that were not exposed to risque music and visuals like Britney, Madonna, and Rihanna….but somehow they still became shameful women. Just goes to show that you can instill as much good guidance as a parent by “turning off” X-Rated music, but there are still other external forces that can influence anyone…Not Just Rihanna through a radio and a tv.

  19. Bey’knight November 24, 2011

    @BrianB

    Bey did sell over 500k ww, 512k i think it was but trust a rhitard to mave every post about her dirty shady numbers. Im so bored with em, they have no arguements

    @ bey knight
    @lovely
    @brian b
    rihannas fans obbsessed over numbers and sales when
    hes the one comments and others or the ones worrying and making a #1 album a issue.
    @brian go back to the post: why can’t rihanna get a #1 album and reas just a few of the comments trying to tear her apart about her and then you can see that its not rihanna navy whos worried about her sales its others and when we support her just as she is we or not giving a care as to if others love/like/ or dislike rihanna its our place to defend her where ever and when ever we want to and WHY DID YOU SAY YOU WAS HERE??????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  22. SWEXY November 24, 2011

    and she has 2 children @ 24 with no baby daddies around… who is she again???

  23. SWEXY November 24, 2011

    why she didnt close her legs when she was a teenager?

  24. TruthTeller November 24, 2011

    Man, I just read that b**** on twitter.
    I bet yall she’ll know better than to try Queen Rihanna again.
    How dare she tryna lecture Rihanna about teaching her daughter how a man should love u for who u are… If she new anything about it she wouldn t be a single mom now… whould she?

    lol

    Flop Ass B****

  25. twosilk November 24, 2011

    @OFFICIAL MUSIC JUNKIE

    Yes, I agree with what you said there about her choosing not to let her children watch Rihanna. However, she can keep that in the privacy of her own home instead of making it look like Rihanna is a bad person.

    Her & Rihanna her the same age. Rihanna has no children, much less out of wedlock. We don’t hear about Rihanna f****** everyone. Rihanna is not an alcoholic, she is not in and out of rehab.

    All she is doing is working hard and trying to be the best that she can be. I say she is a pretty good role model actually. She has accomplished a lot.

  26. SWEXY November 24, 2011

    Rihanna name is the name to call if you want some attention…this is proven everyday by TGJ … which would not get many hits if they did not mention Rihanna

    Rebecca ‘looking for a career’ Ho got the memo

  27. Lax November 24, 2011

    Rihannas stock just keeps shoothing up to the
    top,,,,,thanks ms rebecca with the two kids out of
    wed lock, just amazing and mind blowing about
    how many people speak without thinking.

  30. TruthTeller November 24, 2011

    @Brian B

    More than 150K is in the UK ONLY. And t would be the 3rd largest debut of the year other there.
    Worldwide, TTT is about to debut at about 600K.

    So yeah,it’s >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>to 4closure’s 511k

    WORLDWIDE ICON >>>>>>>>> LOCAL WANNABE

    But don’t count on Sam to hype worldwide sale this time around like when he tried to make us believe that Beyonce selling 1 million WW meant she was platinum.
    LMAO!

  31. kimberly November 24, 2011

    someone has to say it. If it is never said in the public then it will continue. I agree with her. How could you have young girls watching your nasty ness on stage and listening to your nasty songs on their ipod. Nowadays parents cannot even control what their children listen too. They have to try extra hard with them when rihanna is around. She is way too over sexual. There are many more who feel the same way but thinks that they should not let it out but bravo to Rubecca.
    Thank God my cousin was well raised and is now turned off at the age of 10. Smart child, she needed no guidance to make that decision.

  32. Sleazy November 24, 2011

    Anyone besides The navy knows rihanna has no talent Lol but anyway rebecca was referring to her daughter Not herself any mother wouldn’t want her child to be like rihanna “we found love” video is sickening especially the “Mine” part Girls aren’t objects Rihanna is a horny girl we all know that she always talking bout d***. S** etc in interviews She should tone it down Cus we all know this bad girl image is a front Bye

  33. ojie king November 24, 2011

    well in Rihanna’s defence, she doesn’t want to be a role model, she wants to be a ROCKSTAR, SHE SAID SO HERSELF. Come on! she’s young, let her enjoy her youth

  34. TruthTeller November 24, 2011

    @Bey’Knight

    She not not harmless.
    ingle mother hood is the worst social evil hurting our society.
    Every sociologist will tell you that single mother hood the the #1 driver of crime, drug use, suicide attempt, & poverty.
    If she wanna talk about a role models, it is fair to bring u the fact that her ass got pregnant twice without being married.

    She need to keep her legs closed or at least use protection.

    She is nasty.

    “That Rihanna Reign is a fictional children’s book written by L.A. Reid and illustrated by Jay-Z. That Rihanna Reign is sometimes erroneously referred to as “That Rihanna Rain” by Rihanna’s illiterate stans. 😐 😥 😐

    Plot
    In this fictional tale, a Caribbean goat longs to be a famous American pop star. One night a fairy godfather appears and says he will make her dreams come true if she sticks something in her mouth (this part was edited in the American version of the story).

    She does and he transforms her into a beautiful princess. She goes to America and becomes a great entertainer who has #1 albums, hit singles, and she sells out stadiums all around the world.

    Criticism
    The validity of That Rihanna Reign has been heavily questioned. The word “reign” means a period of time in which someone is dominant and/or powerful. Some would argue that a true musical reign would include successful albums and tours as well as singles.

    In late 2009 an extensive search was launched looking for any proof that the Rihanna Reign exists.

    The FBI, the CIA, state, and local law enforcement officers, and hundreds of volunteers began a worldwide search looking for “That Rihanna Reign”. “America’s Most Wanted” aired a segment offering $100,000 for anyone with any information leading to the whereabouts of “That Rihanna Reign”. In November 2011, it was confirmed that The Rihanna Reign did not exist.” 😛

    Rihanna being a role model is all played out

    wit a certain group of people whos always harping
    on such silliness,, and many saying rihanna is a non
    talent and not a entertainer is also played out in Madeas

  40. Aaron November 24, 2011

    Rihanna sang live to a back in a track, are people deaf? You could clearly hear her live mic. People need to educate themselves.

  41. Sleazy November 24, 2011

    Deeeead @TRUTHTELLER coming for gaga 99cents even without the 99centgs Gaga would have still sold over 600k Rihanna did this with rated r Don’t forget that s*** ho Everybody know rihanna sold rated r for that and Yet it didn’t Cross 200k lmao soooo don’t come for ppl sales honey!

  42. S*** (U MAD?) November 24, 2011

    Singles: Rihanna netted 3 #1 singles from Loud. S&M became her 10th #1 on the Hot 100.
    Albums: Although Rihanna’s albums seem allergic to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200, she debuted at #3, selling 207,000 (her highest first week sales ever in life). After 10 months on the charts the album has sold 1.4 million in the United States (the 11th highest selling album of 2011) and 1.5 million in the UK. She also has 10 #1 singles and is the most popular artist on Facebook.
    Tours: Rihanna’s” Loud Tour” did good business in Europe; additional dates were added in the UK and in Paris due to demand. Robyn also did well in Canada — the shows in Montreal and Toronto sold well enough to warrant 2nd dates (although a large block of tickets in Toronto ended up on Groupon). In the United States, however, Ticketmaster just didn’t see it for her. She had hard time selling out in large cities like Chicago and Philadelphia (even with high profile opening acts like Cee-Lo Green, J. Cole, and B.o.B.) , and thousands of tickets ended up being given away for free or sold at deeply discounted rated on Groupon. 😥

    The challange for Rihanna’s team in 2012, is to make her stand out in the minds of the average non-stan. They must find a way to make Rihanna a part of a memorable pop culture moment that does not involve Chris Brown’s knuckles. The easiest way to reach the masses is through high-profile performances; (Grammys, VMAs, BET Awards, TV concert specials, Super Bowl, the White House Fish Fry, etc) but if you’ve ever seen Rihanna perform live, you know that this poses a challenge. For obvious reasons, Rihanna probably won’t be singing the National Anthem at anybody’s Super Bowl; as far as award shows are concerned, the BET Awards have never really used her, the VMAs haven’t seen it for her since “Disturbia”, and the Grammys have never booked her to perform without pairing her with someone far more entertaining (The Time in 2008, Chris Brown in 2009, and Drake in 2011). 2011 was another big singles year for Rihanna, but she continued to be overshadowed in other areas. Katy Perry had 5 #1 singles from one album and sold far more concert tickets in America than Rihanna. Lady Gaga’s first headlining tour grossed more than all of Rihanna’s tours put together; and Rihanna’s best first week album sales was lower than Beyonce’s worst week. Yes, Rihanna has found a comfortable and respectable lane, but her success or failure in 2012 (and beyond) will boil down to her making herself important to people outside of her stanbase.

    No don’t come here with that nonsense, a number 1 album is a number 1 album. So is a number 1 single! All I said was that you people have a habit of bringing up numbers (like to make it seem like her incompetencies are great achievements).

    Rihanna hasnt got the most miniscule iota of musical talent whatsoever!

    Rihanna’s personal dysfunctional lovelorn personal life is more entertaining than her career

    Rihanna’s fanbase is as good as 200k 1st week sales. Payola sells the rest

  58. Ms Lovely November 24, 2011

    LOL @ Rihanna stans clinging to her dismal sales in the UK for validation. Too bad she still can’t them big album sales in America(the biggest music market) where it matter most. 6 tries and she still can’t yield a #1 album, what a f****** flop!
    Of coz they R****** stans had to bring up Beyonce’s name. Beyonce’s album topped both the album charts in the UK and America(simultaneously) for 2weeks ,something RIihann NEVER accomplish. LOL @ Nickelback whooping rihanna’s b*** on the charts(Beyonce handled Nickelback with ease back in 2008). Between Drake,Adele,Nickelback and Michael Buble, she has no chance in hell.

  59. steph November 24, 2011

    To all you ri ri fans who say “shut up and look after your kids”……that’s exactly what she’s doing you give me the name of one mum that’s would be willing to let there 6 year old daughter watch S&M….. I had a 13 year old work experience girl say to me “rihanna is just going through a slag stage every girl has one” and that one comment is the effect she has on our youth

    “Rihanna’s fanbase is as good as 200k 1st week sales. Payola sells the rest”

    @Bey knitght

    Glass houses, dear. Glass houses. Judgining by LOUD, Rihanna’s US fanbase is as good as 1.46 M over the course of a year, and platinum in 3mo. Not too shabby. US Navy may not run out to buy Ri’s albums in the first week, but they eventually buy them.

    and I have to co-sign those giving the side eye to a single mother of two, that’s the same age as Rihanna, trying to give lessons on propriety.

  61. Ms Lovely November 24, 2011

    Why do Rihanna stans always try to inflate her album sales?!? Rated R barely scanned 1mil in America and it took a year to achieve that(even with it’s numerous forgettable hits). Plus Loud has NOT sold 6mil, it’s has so far only sold 5mil+ worldwide.

    i DO NOT KNOW HER ! NEVER HEARED OF HER ! and that’s a fact , not shade !

    somehow i respect her opinion ! but seriously , parents can control what their kids see ! it is not only rihanna’s fault ! she act as if rihanna is everywhere !! she choose to watch T.V , for sure rihanna and her vids will be there , etc..

    she has the option to choose to NOT seeing her ! YOU KNOW !

    and tell me again , why someone like “kim kardashian” is popular ?!

    wasn’t she a P*** STAR WITH A SEXTAPE ?
    why the media keep it 24/7 in our faces ?! WHY CELEBRATING HER AS IF SHE MADE SOMETHING GREAT TO HUMANITY ??!!

    whether she ” the woman above” like it or not , S** SELLS !! and as a woman who love her kids she should control what her kids are exposed too , but while she’s doing that , do not bash others ! a simple ” i do not want my kids to see rihanna” will be understandable ! but it was TOO MUCH for real ! i guess she wanted some publicity by doing that !!
    anyway she isn’t the first , we have PETA and others ….

    SHE WANT HER 15 OF FAME AND THEY ALREADY STARTED …

    TICK TOCK !!

    @S*** :

    GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURL

    stop going to STAN-WARS.COM !!

    but while you are there , check CIARA’S bio , GO HAVE SOME LAUGHS GIRL ! 😉

    i remember growing up and let me tell you what influences children the most is their parents and friends and not popstars……

    i wud say find ur father of that child and stop using rihannas name to get attention

  64. PaigeJ November 24, 2011

    F****** DEAD at that comment by @s*** LMAO. Funniest thing ever LOL.

    Rebecca is right but its nothing new. We ALL know Rihanna ain’t no role model. “Rihanna makes music that sounds like it’s for 10 year old kids yet her image is for horny teenage boys and her attitude is that of a 16 year old rebel.” <— that's the true tea right thurr LOL

    Rihanna's career since 09 has been based and surrounded by that 09 incident. It if didn't happen the b**** probably wouldn't even be relevant today LMAO

  65. KD November 24, 2011

    In typical TGJ fashion the comment section has become a Rihanna vs. Beyonce battle zone. SIGH…

    Well said!

  69. John November 24, 2011

    To defend Rebecca:

    First of all having kids out of ‘wedlock’ is very common in this era, and a lot of children are born this way nowadays. Secondly, yes she did have children young and she probably agree it was a silly choice at the time, but so what? She is a good mother and making something of herself! And what Rebecca is saying is completely true, Rihanna isn’t a role model, but hey h**. Rebecca is incredibly talented and has a beautiful voice.

    In Rihanna’s Defence:

    I still love her, she is fierce.

  70. fools!!! November 24, 2011

    LISTEN ALL THE BEYONCE FANS STOP STOOP STOP LEAVE THIS BLOG ITS NOT WORTH IT ITS A JOKE OKAY THE MOST PEOPLE WHO REPLY ARE THE SAME PEOPLE UNDER 21 FOR SURE AND STUPID AND STOP WITH THOSE FACTS YOU GUYS ARE HILLARIOUS NONE OF THOSE NRS ARE FACTS LOL YOU GUYS REALLY BELIEVE EVERYTHING ON INTERNET??????????????????// ONLY THE ARTIST HIMSELF AND HIS RECORDLABEL KNOW HOW MUCH THEY SOLD DONT F****** BELIEVE WIKI ,WORLD WIDE GLOBE CHART AND S*** THOSE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE BRINGING FACT FROM OTHER WEBSITES …

  72. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie+ Amy Winehouse+ Steve Jobs)) November 24, 2011

    See, I’m sitting here wondering why this Rebecca chick would call out Rihanna as opposed to say Gaga. I mean, what was Bad Romance, if not a pun on white slavery, where a s** s**** winds up burning her john to death? What was Telephone, if nothing more than a bailed con helping best friend poison her boyfriend and a diner full of people? Ooh, but Rihanna’s the villain?

    At first, I thought it might be racial, you know, a black singer being called to task for her “lascivious” behavior, because black women are often represented as over-sexualized Jezebels in the media, as opposed to white women (Gaga), who are all pure and what not. But then, I thought it about some more, and the reason why I think she called Rihanna’s name is because Rihanna really is that b**** in the UK.

    People were making the same types of comments about Britney in her prime, and now it’s Rihanna.

  73. KAT DELUNA FAN November 24, 2011

    Ahahhaha l love TGJ so shady …lmao l cant.what’s the name of this TGJ staff member. 😆 😆

    well said !!rihanna became famous after she went from a good girl image to a bad one.Obviously she needs the bad chick gimmick to sell.

    And Jay is pimpin the h**,doesnt care of her dignity or self respect,he cares about the mulah 😉

    I hear you, but that’s not an excuse, especially if you are criticizing someone else for their life decisions.

  75. KAT DELUNA FAN November 24, 2011

    @MARI
    Because they performed at X-Factor the same night and someone asked her about rihanna 😕 😕 😕 l mean …………..DUH

    Its funny every year TGJ trots some no name female who has shade for Rihanna and every year Rihanna keeps on going but these females are …where ???

    Tiffany who?
    Melanie who?
    Rebecca who?
    C error who?

  80. Lax November 24, 2011

    @KAT,,,Your comment made me think about this idle talk about rihs music being generic i am reminded of how hard it must have been for rih to take her time in seclusion to reflect and do her album right after that incident. She poured her heart into that album and many screamed like they was having labor pains about the dark, and sad songs on that album and she and her team canned their efforts closed out the “rated r era” with 2.5million albums and to date it has moved 3million units and she had hits on that album But we want say much about Hits because it drives many all the way crazy when they hear the words rihanna and her hit singles They then gets stuck on stupid and says thats all she makes is singles and to further push their cause they then start talking about her not selling any albums. its mind blowing how people let their minds play tricks on them. And rihanna won album of the year last week and i happened to mention it and a blocker listed all of another artist accomplishments as far back as slavery days, amazing, just amazing.
    ps rihanna won international artist of the year not long ago i just wonder
    how is it that the international community see rihanna as the talented young super star that she is and many still wants to deny, deny, deny
    rihanna has won artist of the year and countless other accoclades and many or still trying to shut her out of our economic and cultural way of life and its silly and i guess i along with others or silly to for reminding many of just what she has done in her short career and things like that but know that we only have this one life here on earth until we leave earth and crosses over to the other side like many who have passed on with the likes of aaliah, amy and heavy d just to name a few. And if rihanna has to be disliked and bashed because she has chosen to work instead of sleep with them WELFARE twins than that is great all in itself why just some years back she gave over 2.3 million to charities and then gave a undisclosed amount that she kept private, now that speaks volumes as to this artist and how she know very well that she have come from very humble beginnings from the caribbeans and have worked very hard on her career. Of course she have met some bumps in the road but don’t they all. many has worked in the industry with close family and friends and that has helped them to be saved and spared from a lot of the harshness that
    comes with being a super star but rihanna have taken it one day at a time and while many her age would have caved in and given up long ago she keeps withering the storms of life and take all of the bashing in stride and shes still standing strong aganist lives adversities and i as a supporter of hers can see that shes fast becoming a “movement” simply because you see this article and re-read the article and that further cement the fact that rihanna is already a “movement” because otherwise people just would not give a care to what ms. rebecca ferguson had to say, peace!

  82. Lax November 24, 2011

    just a young artist who went in search
    of her life long dreams whats wrong
    with that? If one has to be bashed for
    working hard, it don’t matter is shes
    micro wave pop corn or generic and it
    is clear that it don’t matter if shes a
    icon, legend or diva in the making but
    what does matter is the fact that at least
    rihanna has stepped up and taken her
    place in the line and shes going with
    the flow smooth and easy all the way
    to the music promise land.

  83. Bey’knight November 24, 2011

    @Mari
    Yea my point she hasnt proven herself enough to sell on her name initially n shes on her 6th LP
    @LAX
    Im rooting for u. Its quite adorable how u go about your thing. You’re just a misguided sheep *sigh* someday the wool will come off your eyes 🙂

    @POProyalty

    So Rebecca should stop watchin her tv to avoid the big bad rihanna? Does dat make sense? Yea s** sells but theres such a thing as overdrive, rih has no option but to take it to extremes cus she’s not good enough (AT ALL) to sell without it. Kim is not a pornstar n shes doesnt sell s**, shes jus a reality tv pest like the jersey shore cast

  84. KERRON November 24, 2011

    I think that TGJ is a very smart blog they now exactly what to do to get the hits..Notice that this post had nothing to do with beyonce, but it has again turn into a Rihanna vs Beyonce post

    But i do think there are repeat offenders that cause this to happen. This blog needs @Beyknitght, @s*** and @kimberly to come hear and spread the BITTER B**** Syndrome all over the post to get the ball rolling. If you check every Rihanna post these people are always there and dont matter what is the topic they never have anything good to say. I wonder how these post will turn out if they werent here…hmmmm

  85. Bey’knight November 24, 2011

    @lax
    If she had dreams of becomin a musician she shoulda stayed asleep permanently cus she cant sing!

    Hard work? Wat hardwork? Hardworking folks dont show up to work drunk/ high and deliver horrendous performances night after night. Thankfully her tour grosses reflect what a lousy performer she is. Willow does it better

  86. Bey’knight November 24, 2011

    Smh @Kerron

    In so many ways i could describe how much of an idiot u are for that comment but i’l keep it at this: a rhitard (@truthteller mentioned Bey’s sales like he always does. My comment was relevant to the post. I’ll be positive when she does something worthy of commendation #Period

  87. Sleazy November 24, 2011

    @POp royalty should stfu cus it takes less to nothing to impress his Closet ass! Rihanna is basically another Paris hilton with a Successful career! Cus she has no talent she has proved it so many times (Recently Xfactor performances) You know you delusional when you praise that performance and then you Gloat bout it being Energetic ? Wow lmaooo deeead at them bragging that it was energetic (who can’t do that) rihanna makes fast food music she has no artistry bone in her body She Quantity over quality So why don’t you go listen to her That bside Rated r album (dead at her rippin off rude boy)

  88. Lax November 24, 2011

    @BEY’KNIGHT,,,Speaking of misguided sheep, while you run yourself
    ragggggggggedy trying to convince yourself that rihanna aint s***, i see
    you keeps right on getting them repeat traffic tickets running all of
    them stop lights to rush to a rih post to post mess day after day
    and speaking of rihannas music you and others who dislike her or
    THE WINNERS IN THE GENERIC, SHES SHOWED UP DRUNK, HORRENDOUS PERFORMANCES, LOUSY PERFORMER DEPT I CROWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

    @Bey knight I find it soo funny how rihanna fans always say Bey. Ciara. Gaga etc Fans are bitter and they always start trouble etc when they doing the exact same thing!! Especially that delusional @KERRON All the other fan bases only come for Rihanna for her lack of talent Then her dumb navy throws in sales lmao You know why? Cus that 11 #1 is all they got to defend her They ALWAYS talk bout her #1s even if you talk bout death! You could be like My granny died and they will be like Your favs a Flop mine got 11 #1s! Rihanna fans are idiots and disrespectful I will never forget what they said when Amy died . They need help Cus they stan for someone that Calls them C****

  92. Frankie November 24, 2011

    okay first of all whoever called rihanna a true artist umm .. I’m not even gna address that .. rihanna is playing a role!! she’s the bad ass chick that doesn’t give a f*** .. she’ll get on stage f*** singing live she’ll sing if she feels like it f*** chorography she’ll just jump around and ull love it .. Now rihanna is not the artist for me I like when I pay money to see someone singing songs that you can dance too call me crazy for wanting good singing and dancing .. But the navy are happy quoting billboard stats as their form of entertainment from her so whatever ..but again as sam said her team are tryin to portray a image, they dnt give a s*** what young girls get from rihanna .. Ppl are buyin the singles and albums (well the albums sometimes lol) so at the end of the day rihanna does say f*** off to her haters but indirectly to her young female fans as well

  93. Lax November 24, 2011

    @SLEAZY Let all of us see you try and prove what
    your thoughts or about rihanna performances, let
    us see you try and tell the folks at the bill board, sound scan, global tracks
    and the us & uk itunes that mess all i am saying is prove what you or
    saying for all of the world to see? yep just as i thought you can’t all you can do is keep declaring death on that key board boy, thats all for now boy!

  94. KAT DELUNA FAN November 24, 2011

    @LAX
    l read your s***.LOUD won best “R&B/Soul” last week.Nothing in this album is R&B nor soul

    Rihanna has 3 raps grammy when she is not a rap artist.
    Rihanna spent 37 weeks at #1 when 10 weeks are not even her songs.
    Rihanna takes her vocals lessons via skype and smoke to help her vocal cords.
    Rihanna has plenty #1 that she never wrote or co-wrote and needs 5176837 songwriters to release her album every year

    Rihanna releases her album during Xtmas time to increase the value of lucrative benefits,doesnt care about the artistry or anything
    Rihanna requests her own S*** on twitter,riscount her songs………………………………….

    l mean after years and years of watching this untalented garbage b**** makes the same strategies each november l have no respect for her.How could I after everything l just named?????

    RIHANNA IS A FRAUD
    SHE IS AN UNTALENTED PUPPET USING JAY-Z HALO IN THE GAME,THE TALENT OF A TEAM BEHIND HER TO PULL “NUMBERS”.

  95. Lax November 24, 2011

    @ Frankie while i do agree with parts of your comment but had to add
    that the navy cares about bill board true enough and all artisat, fans and stans had better because its part of the work process but you can add
    to your short list,,,,,navy cares about itunes us & uk, sound scan, amazon,
    hits daily , global charts, acharts, and of course the riaa.

  96. Sleazy November 24, 2011

    Is it me or is @LAX just really dumb! Prove what im trying to say? Really? What does Billboard. Soundscan etc go to do with this? Having Average sales and #1s doesn’t make you talented any 1 gets #1 these days (LMFAO etc) I’m tryna say Rihanna has no TALENT! And Yes Many have stated She sucks Besides her ever delusional navy who Some how thinks singing along with a Back track Is a Big accomplishment! Have you seen Her performances Are you semi blind? Deaf? Cus sounding like a goat and walking on stage Isn’t Good! You need to get it together you fight with every1 theres more to life than a Computer screen Giiiirrrlllll

  97. Lax November 24, 2011

    @Kat i thought marsha won best r&b well anywhoo tell the awards committee that rihanna isn’t r&b and less see how you fair with that. rih won best album i thought for “loud” but i could be wrong.
    If rihanna released her album because of the xmas sales then please explain why all of the others released albums, hun? and rihanna being a fraud and all of that other mama jama why didn;t jay them get a #1 album see some of the things people say do not make any kind of sense.
    @Kat,,,You say after years and years of watching this untalented artist THAN You or and nutty as a fruit cake then aren’t you, why watch a artist you hate? why put yourself in the tortune chamber when you ould have been listening to your fave rather than rihanna my fave among others because i am diverse and i know very well how to love more than one at a time. Loving one artist seems like that would be hard for me thats why i know and perhaps others should learn that variety is the spice of life. i would never admit to doing something i hated for years to the world never
    no wonder you or so messy you have found out that you have listen to rihanna and hated it for so long and just learned that you could have watched others, shameful to say the least.

  98. jamir21 November 24, 2011

    @ Sleazy

    Shut up !

  99. antertain November 24, 2011

    Don’t make excuses for parents not doing there jobs properly.
    Rihanna aint trying to be a role model, shes trying to be a successful pop star & BRAND! Simple as that.

    I love hip-hop, I love horror films! Do i copy what happens in it NO!
    Parents should look to be the role models and educate and inspire there children to do there best in life (whether u struggling or not)!

    Who is looking 2 musicians to be role models REALLY? Creative art is so diverse in all artistic walks (films, music, paintings, fashion etccc..). Its a thing where u cant pigeon hole or expect others to always be that ROLE MODEL status.

    EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT REBECCA so WALK THAT WALK before you TALK THAT TALK and make sure you and the good people around be the source of inspiration for ultimately you own bloodline. Your personal life and lifestyles maybe different but as a single mum of 2 (who dated a younger boy for his looks NOT maturity) you cant preach nor judge. Learn and be better.

    TRUSS ME i’m not a Rihanna stan AT ALL but i respect her hustle cus although she a puppet of her label, 6 years of singles, albums, tours & appearances it equates to super work ethic.

  100. KERRON November 24, 2011

    I just want to ask a question, have you ever seen me on a bey post, have you ever heard me say anything bad about beyonce or just her fan base. i dont drag any other artist on this blog so plz get your facts straight.

    I don’t see why you bey stans feel the urge to waist 10mins of your life looking for a rihanna post to say the same thing over and over again..Thats the reason why i call you guys BITTER B******. these arguments always start because of you bey stans you just hate the fact the Rih is doing her thing

    And as for you @BEYKNIGHT you where like the only Beystan i respected on this blog because even if i didnt agree with you, you brought across your point well and wasnt without all the Bitchieness but now you sound like a pressed c***, with nothing to do but bring down people that are way more relevant than you. you have no heart and no other point to make other that what you have already stated in the millions of Rihanna post. sowhy the f*** you come back to say the same thing over and over again?

KEEP SAYING SHE SUCKS PERHAPS I CAN SEE WHAT I CAN DO ABOUT GETTING RIHANNA TO MAKE A SONG ABOUT “SUCKING” SINCE ITS A POPULAR WORD USED TO DESCRIBE HOW SHE DOES ON THE WORLD STAGE. I WILL SEE ABOUT GETTING SOME ONE TO REPAIR THAT ELEVATOR YOU OR STUCK IN THE BASEMENT ON AFTER DINNER.

    It’s funny how y’all was saying Keri was right with what she did and now y’all want to get on this chick cause she said something bout Rihanna

  112. MissImpartial November 24, 2011

    Guys you can post as much of Rihanna’s achievements as you want the fact is that she is selling her body for fame and chart success. What Rebecca said is true. Rebecca is talented and has an amazing voice. She is very down to earth and she was only giving her opinion. And to discredit Rebecca and putting her down because she has two kids is stupid. She looks after her kids and pays for them. She dated Zain Malik who is 18. It is not like she was dating a 13 year old. As for @Truthteller and @LAX you guys need to relax it is not the end of the world . You guys come off as stalker fans.

  113. MissImpartial November 24, 2011

    Artist who say they do not want to be role model and are not trying to be one use this excuse as a cop out. They are aware of what they are promoting and know how old their target audience is. They want to pomote sexual images and bad behaviour to young teenagers. Don’t be fooled they def know what they are doing and they are doing it to influence kids but would never admit it. So stop using these excuses.

  114. Dre November 24, 2011

    Well, Rebecca or whoever she is needs to really tone it down with that wreckless talk she is doing. I know she is trying to be relevant so feels like the thing to do is to talk about Rih. If she was so against s**, how did she have those two kids and I know it wasn’t an immaculate conception. The thing is, where did Rihanna sign a contract that had “rolemodel” in fine print? That’s the problem, parents need to raise their kids and not Rihanna. I’m grown and want to hear grown people music. If I wanted to hear nursery rhymes, I’d watch Yo Gabba Gabba. There are labels on the music so don’t buy it for your children. Rebecca (whoever she is) needs to fallback.

  115. Bey Fan… November 24, 2011

    Im not sure what she was asked…..so I want say anything negative about her….

    In Becca defense, Riri has done plenty of interviews talkin about how she likes s**, so I could see how that could make a parent not want their daughter looking up to Rihanna

    But like everyone has said, riri is not a parent, she is young and s*** and just likes to have fun.

  116. Bey Fan… November 24, 2011

    last thing….to the ppl who keep comparing Loud to 4….you should compare Loud to IASF…

    Now when TTT has been out for 5 months, we’ll see where the numbers are.

    Happy Turkey Day

  117. Those That Cannot Do, Stan November 24, 2011

    1. Do people feel smart displaying their ignorance? I used to feel like people hid their stupidity but now they display it loud and proud and have folks falling over themselves to co-sign. Saying I wouldn’t let my daughter watch Rihsnna seems so dumb to me. A. You don’t trust your daughter B. You just admitted either your daughter is so simple or you’re such a bad mother neither of you can distinguish reality. C. You have kids out of wedlock and were clearly opening your thighs long before RiRi was a “Good Girl Gone Bad”…but Rihanna’s the problem.

    Never heard of this woman before today but the statement she made reeks of immaturity. Can people really be so simple? Judging by her comments and others, clearly they can.

  118. DONT TRY IT B**** November 24, 2011

    I don’t like Rihanna BUT her videos and her music are telling a story, if that story is f******, or revenge after r***, or heartbreak it is RIHANNA’S album not yours! She is a grown ass woman, and she does not raise your kids, YOU DO! If that doesn’t make her a “role model” ok, get over it! She is doing what she wants to do with HER career and music. If you want to listen to a subtle song about tennage love, hit up T.Swift(I love her). Everybody is not going to sing about the same things and act the same way, if so TGJ, TMZ, and all you other h*** would be out of business. Let her do her, and stay in YOUR LANE.

GURL you a TRICKING ASS S*** BISH with NO PLACE TO TALK!!! The Bey fans up in here also a damn cackle!! This is NOTHING like the Keri situation!. Yall nearly had heart-failures and all Keri did was refuse to raise a cover! This bish is straight talking sideways about the QUEEN OF THE GAME!!! Yall some hot ass messes up in this bish!! YOU WILL NOT have me drag your fave by her prosthetic left breast ALL OVER this post now!!!

  121. Lax November 24, 2011

    So many have been singing the same song for well over 5 into 6 years
    now. I guess many feels like if they keep saying that rih’s untalented long enough some people who or weak minded like they or will start to believe that shes untalented. i hope that those who do not wish rih well will some how learn how to love themselves and stop trying to beat themselves up over the news that rih is still doing her thing on the international stage and does not give a dead rat in the hood rest rooms about what they keep saying bad or negative about her. She is hated on and called so many names by those who or stuck on stupid and their elevators or about 12 bricks shy of a full load.

    Rihanna has been bringing it since day one and when it all boils down its all about practice, practice, practice and i feel that rihs eariler producers whom shes still with and jaz picked a winner. And since she has been groomed, trained and taught by the best you can see that she have got a good head on her. They have taught her well and she and bey and jay, west and all of them or in the money making business and couls care less about all of the back and forward on the net. However just like a blogger stated Rated xxx said the majic words about beyonce speaking out to her bee hive the other day and just like RATED XXX STATED THAT IS ALL ABOUT HER MONEY Now all of the hell that rih gets back and forward don’t you know that bey and jay nor rihanna gives a dam as long as them checks keeps hitting them various bank accounts.
    Then simple simons and air heads gets on the net and tries to assult, shoot and stab that TYPEWRITER to death. They tslks mess s*** like a plugged in s*** machine and to tell the truth i am right off into the mix big time. But at the end of the day these artist all of them or getting paid.
    And many don’t make as much as others but to me they or all paid. Therefore to those who shouts the hardest aganist rihanna and others or still getting paid and it don’t matter if you like it or not!

  122. karla November 24, 2011

    All these lesser h*** always trying to keep Rihanna name in their mouth. All artists sing about s** and get raunchy..from GaGa to Beyonce. They all wear lingerie and gyrate all over the stage. Most of them are older than Rihanna and have been selling s** before she even entered the biz. Look at j lo on the AMA’s. Look at Beyonces latest video. But everyone wants to focus on RI RI. They don’t want to mess with an American..So they constantly pick on the little island girl because they think its safer to do so than to risk upsetting the Americans.

  123. Lax November 24, 2011

  125. AYNON November 24, 2011

    this is not about her saying rihanna is not a successful an accomplished performer and one of the best in the world – this is about her being a bad role model…which she is PERIOD has no bearing on her success, but she is.

    All the Big Stars are somewhat bad role models granted some worse than other but its still a valid point eg:

    Beyonce – Baby Boy, The Uncut ‘Heat’ Advert is shocking

    Xtina – Divorcee, Dirrty, Lollipod, Video for Not Myself Tonight

    Adele – Obese

    Britney – Need i say more?

  126. KERRON November 24, 2011

    @WHUT just gave me life!!!!!!!!!….B**** dont stop there i want all the DIRT, SAND and PEBBLES LOL

  127. Onyx November 24, 2011

    Who? is this girl, sorry but i don’t know who is she, anyway yes she’s a bad role model and i love that, the rebels always are the most remembered, James Dean, Bette Davis, John Lennon, David Bowie, Madonna, Prince, Grace Jones….Yeah RiRi is in the list……EROTICA———-TALK THAT TALK.

  128. Tina November 24, 2011

    LMAO! Someone with balls t call Rih out i see. Anyway maybe not the best decision.

    And enough with the navy always trying to make up for Rihanna’s OBVIOUS LACK OF TALENT! Noone disputes the 11 no.1 singles or Loud album sales but again it is you the same navy that say Rated R which is not even one of her best selling albums to be her best so i don’t understand why you are so hung up on receipts!!!! Fact is Rih can sell all the albums she sells but that will NEVER EVER make her any more “talented” than she is!!

  129. Tina November 24, 2011

    @BEY’knight :

    i didn’t ask you about what the f*** KK do , i said she’s a P*** STAR and she is a certified one at it too ! ppl liked her for that ” plus her BIG ASS” !!

    so you tellin’ me that KK is not a p*** star !

    seriously : STFU @BEY’knight !!
    ppl now love the fierce girl sexualized image MORE !

    tell me again what was the last #1 of beyonce again ?!

    SL , right ?!

    WHAT SHE WAS DOING ?!

    yeah right ! sasha FIERCING !

    BYE !

    this b**** should NOT let her kids look UP to female artists as role modesl and turn off her damn T.V and take them out for a walk or to find her a new d*** to ride and HUSH already !!

  131. Tina November 24, 2011

    And for all the ignorantS immediately going to Rih’s defense you know why she singled Rih out as a bad role model. Its because for Rih the bad persona and all the explicitness of her as a performer is carried on to her everyday life unlike most of the other stars who leave it on the stage…

  132. Abel Villas Boas November 24, 2011

    SICK AND TIRED OF TGJ … FORGET ABOUT RIHANNA

  133. VFB November 24, 2011

    Excuse me please…….Ummmm who is she and what does she sing?

  134. Observer November 24, 2011

    what get me with these people always using Rihanna as a Scapeoat and she is not the first not the last to use these methods. Why single her out? I Guess rebecca and her kids listen to Gaga huh? As for Rebecca I sure hope her life is Saintly because she just opened a whole can of worms where her every move will be scutinized by the press. As long as you are going to be self righteous and stand in judgement of others consider yourself open to the same rule. The saying “People in glass houses should not throw stones” and ” He that is without sin, cast the first stone” comes to mind. I find a lot of these people commenting negative on Rihanna hypocritical. Including TGJ. Wonder what you would find if you investigated on these” butter won’t melt in their mouths goody too shoes’. Even if they are trying to live clean npow go deep into their back files.

  135. Observer November 24, 2011

    Some people here kill me. At the AMA’s JLO lpsynched or used backing track her song and they were all full of praise galore. Rihanna used a back tract at X_Factor the same way Bey, Gag, Jlo and all the faves do it but she gets the s***** end of the stick. I firrmly believe it’s because she is a Black girl from the Islands and not African/American and becuse she is blowing up bigger than the fellow Americans she is hated like this. I think for Sam at TGJ he felt she took his man Chris Brown from him and that’s why he hates her so. LMAO!!!!

  136. Observer November 24, 2011

    I am in the business and know for sure what I am speaking on is true. In life there will always be haters! Some people don’t feel good living evderyday unless they hate on someone or something. It’s sad really. They always have to find a scapegoat for the shortfalls in their life. I guess Rihanna is that for some. Parents are the role models for their own children. Don’t look to Hollywood for that. You won’t hardly find it there. Guess what/ They are still human there the last I checked.

  137. Observer November 24, 2011

    Sam’s hatred is tireless. He is a bitter b****!

  138. Small_Angel November 24, 2011

    Hahaha Laughing so Hard on those TGJ “should be” lecturing Rebecca!!!

  139. ashley November 24, 2011

    The only reason why rihanna sells albums is cause she has to release like a bunch of singles from one album. Her albums have not been cohesive in a while, in my opinion her last cohesive album was music of the sun, a girl like me was okay, but after that everything was pretty much crap.

  140. Lady Gaga: Bow Before Me! November 24, 2011

    She’s already my 2nd favorite singer. Haha. OMG ThateGrapeJuice hahahaha!!!! Let it rain on RIhanna. Love the shade. LOL

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!

  141. I’ma have to send her back to her maker November 24, 2011

    This b**** needs to shut up. Rihanna don’t wanna be a role model to little girls. That’s miley, selena, and taylor’s job. If she wants to pop her cooch and have videos about drugs let her. It’s ART. Do you say the same about lady gaga wearing penis stilettos or showing her bare ass and slitting her dress to the b*** as a bad role model? Why must u come for ri?? Jealous btich….

  142. iSimplyDGAF November 24, 2011

    oh em gee… Rihanna is a artist. and first and foremost A GROWN ASS WOMAN. People need to stop giving celebrities the title of “role model” just because alot of people listen to them. She stopped making “child friendly” music a long time ago. Same as Gaga..(not that im trying to bring her up) But Gaga is again A GROWN ASS WOMAN who dances half naked, did a few controversial videos, etc. the list goes on. Who ever said that either one of them wanted to be a role model? They’re ARTIST. They’re job is to be creative..put out music…and sell it…the rest is irrelevant really. Let them do their thing..

    and for God’s sake..if your gonna judge someone..make sure you have ur ducks lined up. Clearly shes a poster child for premartial s**, single parenthood, and how to use a condom INEFFECTIVELY. NEXT!

  143. NICK November 24, 2011

    really? is all of that necessary, Rebecca who? chile your daughter is grow up & do what seh wants regardless, if u raise her to have her own mind then your job is accomplished.., let other people do what they want/feel, ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HONEY!

    Rhitard is not a role model… She’s a w**** and a c***!! She doesn’t even sing live. She can’t dance… I think she summed herself up right when she said she is a C***!

    anyways i am a rihanna stan so that must mean everything she does i have to do too right.

  148. MelyB November 27, 2011

    TGJ – By now your vendetta against Rihanna is sick & sad – I am actually beginning to believe that this site in on her pr payroll.

    I am very disappointed that instead of supporting this new artist by posting her performances on the X-Factor last year and keeping the US apprised of what she’s been doing since, you chose to introduce her to us this way.

    I believe Rebecca has a right to express her opinion and certainly the comments may have been taken out of context of an entire interview and while I wish that Rihanna had not come up in their convo, I do support her right to speak her mind & eagerly await her debut album.

    Bo Staff, Sword, Nunchakus, Sai, Tonfas, Kamas, and Escrima Stick are just some of the many weapons a student of the martial arts might use.
    Black gay poet Marlon Riggs once complained that
    when he moved to San Francisco’s Castro district decades ago that he was not acknowledge in the gay community; Riggs explained that he was still a black man with no voice in a community of his own people (keithboykin.
    There are also multi-sided bo staffs such as octagonal but these are much less common than the
    usual round, circular versions.
