    All of twitter “She is doing great”
    Beyonce, Jay-Z and JssieJ: *Cheer in front row*
    Sam: Trust me its awful!

    The live streams are a hot mess, one makes her sound robotic and keeps sound popping so sometimes she is really low and inaudible and other time she is squeeky and static-y!

    You made a post before they’re were any videos!

    Does anybody know how long she’ll be on stage. Is it an 1-hour set or something like that, because, given that she’s the headliner, she has to perform at least 10-15 songs I suppose.

    • Aaron June 24, 2012

      Lol she dont even have 15 songs.. Lmao

  10. uhm June 24, 2012

    I think you’re taking this too far, at least f****** give her constructed criticism instead of blatantly slagging her off.

  11. Back to Basics June 24, 2012

    Shes trying. Like that she added more choreo but so far the vocals are terrible. Im not even trying it when I say this, its my honest opinion but besides the giant pyramid, it kind of cries out Beyonce Glasto wannabe with a bit more bad b**** attitude. Just saying. But good luck with rest of the set Ri. I do like you girl.

  12. joker June 24, 2012

    haha. right. i didn’t expect much. i had crystal clear sound on the radio and didn’t see a thing. to state i’ve not been bothered by the “look” of it and it was a f****** torture inbetween. trampling over the backings, oversung alot, weird electro mix and …

    i’m not even bothered to watch the rerun on a bbc stream. there’s nothing intresting there.

    enjoy. 😀

  13. StTrendz June 24, 2012

    At this point I laugh at this blog site. Yall talk about her modeling/image is whats keeping her career alive but her..RIHANNA is what keeps this site alive. This blog site is nothing without mentioning Rihanna’s name so who is the bigger joke in this picture… #LAME

    • wacky 0 June 24, 2012

      have to agree with you!

      this is like the 3rd post f****** hell yeah shes s*** but just do one hateing post!

  14. Cockiness June 24, 2012

    lol so i just watch the show…….now rihanna girl? there’s all of the lights and all of the words…..and that’s what i need you to sing the next time….OK

  15. Godyonce June 24, 2012

    She’s obviously a pothead. But what if she is on some hard s*** and what if something should happen to her. Will u feel proud tgj? Will you it enthrall you to know that you just perpetually swung hate her way day in day out? We get it. Her talent is not proportional to her sucess. That’s life. Accept it and move on

      oh stop with the guilt-tripping

  16. Benron June 24, 2012

    It was a bit shaky, but good! Here is only girl!

  17. likane June 24, 2012

    well I must say I must apologize to my tan I had not seen the video quality I look at a site of his fans and rihanna with the comment that he was posting I really thought it was great
    so what I see the she spends her time to walk leaves the parties in the most difficult of singer rihanna short what I withdrawn my queen lol I was so angry when I saw the Beyonce sitting down
    it must stop supporting the protection of his married to care for her career

  18. MJ Lover June 24, 2012

    She’s obviously on something. But I’m pretty sure that someone (I think Jay-z) will get her ass together and tell her to take break before it’s to late. But I have faith that Rihanna will somehow manage to get back on track.

  19. acem June 25, 2012

    Rihanna is a puppet mastered hack, who consistently embarrasses herself on stage. She has no business in the field she’s in. I’ve seen burger flippers at fast food joints who have more talent and charisma than she does.

  20. Vandrea June 25, 2012

    At this point I have damn near exhausted more witty ways of describing just how lacking in talent I think Rihanna truly is.

    So I’ll just say: terrible as usual.

    I actually REALLY enjoyed it. I don’t understand what your problem is.

    Major stars such as Rihanna, Jay-Z and Jack White are preparing to play the BBC’s biggest ever free live music event, Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend.
    Around 100,000 people are expected to flock to east London to attend the festival, part of the BBC’s Olympic celebrations, with more than 100 acts taking to six stages.

    In excess of 250,000 people applied for tickets for the event at Hackney Marshes, with most reserved for people from the neighbouring Olympic boroughs.

    Hip hop star Jay-Z is topping the bill for Saturday’s show, while Rihanna is the biggest headliner on Sunday.

    Other big names appearing over the two-day festival include Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah and Florence + The Machine.

    Black Eyed Peas star is also on the bill, along with Leona Lewis and Plan B. There have been reports that Cheryl Cole may perform.

    Organisers have been working closely with police to ensure safety at the show, part of the London 2012 Festival which kicked off this week.

    This was a great look for Rihanna the UK Loves Rihanna and it shows
