    I love love her accent..maybe because I have one

    I like the way shes honest about her body, her body is the business, hence why I stay in the gym..

    i love this chick for real…she’s honest, she doesnt give a f***, she knows shes not perfect…

    maybe thats why alot of bitter h*** cannot stand her..SHE DOESNT GIVE TWO F**** ABOUT YALL…..

    doesnt matter how much yall bitter f**** try to get her atttention..SHE GOT MILLIONS, MILLIONS TO MAKE..

  10. March 29, 2012

    todays’ pop stars are all the same….i mean how many times can we get the same answers in interviews….i knew what rihanna was going to respond to these questions. I heard it all from Beyonce already. “so how was your acting experience?” “i was really nervous, it’s a new experience, growth blah blah blah”

  11. RATEDxxx(team rihanna, who’s mad?) March 29, 2012

    Weren’t yall (tgj) the same ones talking about Rih being overexposed? But y’all have a post on her twice a day like clockwork. Anyhow, I love Rih!

  21. commanderofthedancefloor March 29, 2012

    bitter b****** stay bringing up irrelevant s***!!

    dam can we for once stay on topic! bey wasnt mentioned in the post or interview!
    also the glasses riri got was worn back in rated r era look at rockstar 101 where she channels slash!! and gaga did it before bey did it also so if anything ri and bey are channeling gaga!!

  22. ofcourse March 29, 2012

    She looks a hot f****** mess. I didn’t even read the story. Beyonce was out today too looking a hot f****** mess. What the hell is going on with celebrities. You have so much money. You should be able to afford to look better.

  23. PierOne March 29, 2012

    Her hair looks horrible! She looks a sloppy mess. We all know her success came at Chris Brown’s expense! Oh no Rihanna not the troubled story of your tragic past again.

  24. Aunt Jackie March 29, 2012

    She’s not the very best speaker, or the smartest cookie, but who is (it’s rare) in the entertainment industry. Cool, and very cute interview, she seemed to hit her stride as it progressed.

  25. chulo March 29, 2012


  26. TRUSTORY March 29, 2012

    “biracial” lol thats the islands for you . Anyway both her parents are of African descent her father is the One thats biracial. She’s like Monica, Whitney houston, Sasha and Malia Obama, etc. None of her parents are white.

  27. Kerry Johnson March 29, 2012

    Rihanna >>>>>>>>>>Beyonce 🙂

  28. Too Cool March 29, 2012

  31. Lax March 29, 2012


  32. Lax March 29, 2012

    Man the envy and jealousy you can cut it with a knife!!

  33. Lax March 29, 2012

    Very fashion forward, and very well spoken/
    shes very smart and its great that she doesnt sweat the
    small and hateful things people say about her. She has learned that
    at a very young age, you could say she has been schooled by the best
    in the business!!

  34. Lax March 30, 2012

    Yessssss to your yapping because that is why you or here
    licking and kissing her ass because she all that you say she
    is and then shes Rich as Country Butter and its killing your
    Broke & Busted asses!!

  35. Lax March 30, 2012

    Dont it P*** you off to try and keep pulling her down and
    she keeps coming back swinging harder than ever????

  36. talent not gimmick March 30, 2012

    sounds like a puppet

  37. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 30, 2012

    @KAT deluna fan :

    @RUDE BOY LOVES ” i’m yo leader ” and the REDone tracks like ” Whip it” , ” pound the alarm” and “beautiful sinner”.

    the album starts from track 10 for me , great album and i started to like the h**.

    everyone do that “can you love me ” , ” push push” sound girl , Kat should do something about it.

    and yes , Redone tracks is always recognizable.

  38. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 30, 2012

    is = are *

  39. Stans make me LOL March 30, 2012

    I love her accent but she lacks vocabulary. Her hair looks nice here though

  40. HOLLAND March 30, 2012

    I laugh at haters. Rihanna makes good music, has a nice ass, and some a bad ass attitude. Rita ora is a compliment for Rihanna. Azelea banks is someone who should be honored to work with her, just like Nicki Minaj and Coldplay did.

    She’s still winning y’all!

  41. Bobby Bulgaria March 30, 2012

    Beyonce can only DREAM of looking this classy…

  42. JCB March 30, 2012

    She definetely listed a lot to Gaga interviews. She’s talking about her ‘hard childhood’ and I just don’t believe that. She was 18 or something when she got signed on a beach in barbados. Rihanna, some people have real problems!!!!!!!!!

  43. ♛ POP Royalty ♛ (Rude Boy) March 30, 2012

    @JCB :

    all of them ask about the sympathy from their fans when they talk about their childhood , gaga is the only one who’s “smart” in her interviews. #facts

    let’s get to the #getreal part :

    rihanna came from a poor background , her father was a crack head and he used to have a constant violent atmosphere around rihanna , and rihanna used to sell clothes to ppl in streets for a living thanks to her poor family’s financial problems back in the day , gurl has her fair share of the bitterness of life when she was young , gaga was born to a very rich family ” contrary to rihanna’s case” and the only time she struggled when her father stopped supporting her financially and maybe when she was young and was gettin’ bullied by her peers.
    yes rihanna had a hard childhood. don’t compare her to b****** whom their daddies helped them completely ” beside having a talent or not”. she depended on ONLY her ! no daddy , no mommy , NO one , just rihanna fentying !

  44. loreal March 30, 2012

    1) Biracial? Since when? 2) I like Rihanna like the next person but Beyonce could only dream of being as classy? Could you not be more confused? Beyonce is the epitome of classy. Rihanna stay tooting it up. Classy and her name doesn’t even fit in the same sentence.
