Rating Rihanna: Is Her “Reign” Finally Letting Up? (Video)

Published: Monday 4th Jun 2012 by Sam

Rihanna.

Say what you will about her, but not only is her success “compelling”, she also stands as one of the most renown Pop polarizers in recent history.

Indeed, for many her “F effort” approach underlines all that is wrong with today’s music industry; while for others she represents a new generation.

Whatever your take on her, the fact is you have one. Alas, we’re keen to hear what you think about the model’s current predicament. Aged just 24, she has six albums under her wig (as well as a horde of awards), she also serves as one of the biggest Digital music sellers of all time, and yet remains respected by so few, with increasingly low album sales to boot.

In this ‘The Business Roundtable Special”, our resident host Patrick is joined by comedienne Bresha Webb and upcoming actor TQuan Wilson to “Rate Rihanna”. Hit ‘PLAY’ and be sure to let us know what you think about “That Rihanna Reign” below…

      RIHANNA MAKE PARTY SONG TO BE IRRELEVANT THAT IS WHY SHE WON’T MAKE AN RNB ALBUM BECAUSE SHE CAN’T SING SEE UNLIKE @Beyonce making a Whole RNb album and went platinum and her first album is rnb and has went 5x platinum

    Lmao. i love Bresha Webb. She’s hilarious.

  4. thepleasureprincipal June 4, 2012

    This constant bash of Rihanna vocal ability is entertaining but it’s not accurate. Rihanna obviously won’t ever sound like a Jennifer Hudson but that’s not what’s appealing about aesthetic or style of music. Rihanna was found by Jay-Z and doubting his choice of talent is, for lack of better words, stupid. Rihanna is one the best female artist of this new generation not solely on her beauty but of the island character of her voice and sound. She’s straddling the Billboard charts for more reasons than one.

    P.S. Bresha was the only one I’d like to see in further episodes. She’s the only one with host-characteristics.

    • Ayo June 4, 2012

      Give me a break with the doubting Jay Z’s choice in talent, that’s rubbish, Jay Z is a buisness man, he know’s Rihanna can’t sing, Rihanna at the time of her signing was just a product to him, remember he was backing Teairra Mari way more when the both came out, If Rihanna had flopped just as hard as she did he would have dropped her too. Rihanna’s appeal is down to her looks, her being controversial and good simple catchy songs, not at all talent, because if Rihanna was a basic chick she would have never have got as far as she is now.

      • I’m not throwing shade, but… June 4, 2012

        I was said that Rihanna was actually dropped and picked up again because SOS became a hit. The video, studio time and song was funded by Reebok so the record company didn’t see any financial loss but someone they could now market off the back of SOS. I think that Rihanna had a taste of fame so did whatever she could do to retain that hence all the image changes and albums out every year, and selling her soul….

      • I’m not throwing shade, but… June 4, 2012

        Love the attractive Bresha…as for the other two ladies….

    • Stephen June 4, 2012

      The PP, you’re son on point. It’s only unwise people that criticise Rihanna’s vocal ability. She is first and foremost an ENTERTAINER. She is NOT a vocal kind of artist(neither are Madonna, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Akon, T.Pain, etc), so she shouldn’t be expected to sing up to the level of Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, Fantasia, Christina Aguilera, R Kelly, John Legend, Jojo, etc), cause that’s not her specialty as an artist. She is an entertainer, just like Spears, Lopez, Lady GaGa, etc. She is a good entertainer in terms of her catchy music.
      She is a better entertainer than the Beyonce who people like to always compare Rihanna to. But Beyonce is a better performer, because being an entertainer is different from being a performer. Performing entails the live vocals, of which Whitney and R Kelly were top notch live vocalists

      • Stephen June 4, 2012

        *so on point* not “son”

      • Virtuoso Intellect June 4, 2012

        @stephen

        Pls explain what “entertaining” entails to you and what makes Rihanna a better entertainer than Beyonce. Im waiting

      • Stephen June 4, 2012

        Virtuoso Intellect, being an entertainer entails not necessarily the artist’s performing skills but also the kind of props he uses, and the music he releases, and we cannot deny that Rihanna’s music is catchier than Beyonce’s, and more easy to sing along to. Rihanna is a better entertainer than many in this generation, and that’s why people connect to her singles easily.
        Artists like Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Katy(all of whom are not in the same genre as Beyonce and aren’t as good in live performing-which inludes vocal ability and live vocal performances- as she is) are better entertainers than her, even just based on their kind of songs.

      • Jake June 4, 2012

        Did you really just put Lady GaGa in the same sentence with Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears? haha How much of GaGa do you actually know? She can sing her ass off.

    • Virtuoso Intellect June 4, 2012

      @stephen

      Well if its based on the songs they release. I disagree completely. I think Beyonce’s music is way better. Rihanna’s music is only catchier because radio favours electropop today which is what Gaga, kesha, katy n the rest of em do too. Personally im tired of it. Props dont do it cus i see thru gimmicks. Katy uses mad loads of props but her performances are still panned. Its an insult to say props make a singer a better entertainer than artist that entertain thru art. Rmbr singing is supposed to be entertaining. Thats what Whitney, Mariah built their name on, Janet, MJ – great dancers, Beyonce -great performer. That’s what entertainment is to me not catchy hooks & strategic props.

      • Lax June 4, 2012

        Rihanna’s music is for the grown, mature and s*** crowd and
        beyonce’s music is KIDDY SAFE, thats all

  5. TheTruthHurts June 4, 2012

    The fact that TGJ has put forth such an aggressive effort into trying to drag Rihanna should answer the question. It’s not letting up. As long as her name keeps popping up on blogs, in magazines, newspapers, etc…it’s not going to change. What Sam and the rest of the TGJ “staff” fail to realize is that, no one really cares besides them and the misguided teenage misfits that follow suit and come off even more half-cocked and incoherent. I find it uber funny that this site will magnify and dissect everything NEGATIVE about this girl, but dares to never highlight the positive. Love her or hate her, the fact is she is an established artist with an impressive resume’ to boot. No matter how you feel about her vocal talents, stage presence, or her personal life, she’s here. This maximum strength hate is yielding minimum results outside of the 17 people who actually comment on this site. Make a note of it and do better. #thatisall

    first guy is so….awful

  7. Nike11 June 4, 2012

    Rihanna sure is the pop queen now…. and has achieved a great amount of success in a short amount of time.. However I feel that With all the tattoos, Twitter rants, and blunt-smoking paparazzi shots, I get the feeling she’s focused on living in the now – just like most people people her age. But, if she wants the longevity of pop divas before her, she needs to decide what she will be remembered for. Otherwise, she will fade from our memory just like any other trend. Rihanna makes songs that are hot now but can you honestly say that you will be listening to her albums or want to see her in concert when you are in 60 singing “Birthday Cake” ? Rihanna’s vocal abilities are not the best and her “bad girl” persona can only carry her so far before the next young pop star comes along…. so I think Rihanna will branch into other fields like fashion or Modelling possibly in the future

    • Virtuoso Intellect June 4, 2012

      Gaga & Madonna are selling out stadiums.
      Adele’s outselling everybody with a year old album
      Beyonce’s critical acclaim is higher than ever
      Gaga’s number 1 in social ranking

      What exactly makes Rihanna the pop queen? Her singles success? Even though of her 5 singles released from her latest album, only 1 went top ten (and no1 eventually)

      • Stephen June 4, 2012

        I don’t like Rihanna much, but we can’t deny that her LOUD album era was a powerful one. And for your “top 10” remark, it’s just a matter of time that “Where Have You Been ” will reach that top ten of the hot 100

  8. Junior in Jamaica June 4, 2012

    Really? You guys are desperate f**** to be honest…

      Top RnB album of the year – 4 by Beyonce
      Metacritic score of 73.

      Thats not a failure!

        Actually CB won top R & B of the year with a Grammy not Beyonce.

      • Virtuoso Intellect June 4, 2012

        I was talkin of billboard, based on stats not grammys. Grammys dont use the term “top RnB album”. Saleswise 4 is the best selling RnB album released last year

    • alonzo wilson June 4, 2012

      4 is platinum and has a number 1 hit for seven weeks and had a song on the urban radios that was number one with 60 million listening to her so what flop not @Beyonce you must talking about rihanna who can’t get a number 1 album to save her life

  12. TheTruthHurts June 4, 2012

    I agree that she is living for the now @Nike11.
    The thing is, is there anything wrong with that, though? Her life plan might not be limited to just being a singer. Everyone has a purpose on this earth, including her. You never know….once her contract is done, she might just hang up her mic and call it quits to pursue something that’s not in the entertainment business. She wouldn’t be the first – (see: Roxanne Shante’). Twitter rants and publicity stunts aside, she’s living her life and taking full advantage of the good life while she can (can you blame her?). My thing is, let her enjoy it. She knows what her lane is, knows where she stands on the vocal tip and she’s comfortable with that. Her fans must also be comfortable with it because she is still relevant, making music and doing her. Nobody is successful by accident. If it happens, then it’s meant to be. If it’s not…well…..(see: Teairra Marie, Teyana Taylor, Ciara, Tiffany Evans, Dondria, etc). All those women are very talented, they are all her peers and they never reached her level of success.

    i wont knock rihanna..but she is big because of her island flavor which includes her voice, and raunchy moves. Her voice along with catchy lyrics and bad ass beats is what makes rihanna. Me to being from the islands i have to big her up because she is representing.

    Rihanna & Chris Brown are the most hated artists. They are hated more than Beyonce and we all know she gets alot of hate but not like Rihanna & Chris Brown.

        I think your wrong about that @Kissy_Minaj.

        You can see that when you go on a Nicki post. Nicki’s post don’t get many comments of hate like Chris & Rihanna

  18. dee June 4, 2012

    I have found a new kind of respect for Rihanna . To have the press and other celebs bring up a situation you didn’t want people to know about… That’s messed up. Anytime someone doesn’t like what she does they throw that in her face.people call her a w**** and yes she’s very sexually uninhibited but really …like the balls. Just disrespect and I’m not even a stan.

  19. Jesse June 4, 2012

    She has to make her career last. She cant give it all at once. Pay attention. Yall see how shes givin choreo, more stage presence. Shes not releasing anything this year they say. But plans to tour 2013. Says theyre working on her biggest show yet. Shes lining things up. Just wait. Dont ever count her out. Shes already carved her lane and we already know her name.

    This perceives weakness to have a #1 is an asset since she
    still some how always make it into the top ten, and she has
    had two to go #1 World Wide. What is the different between
    her going #1 and those who has gone #1 and still not sold as
    much as she has? I mean i can see and understand the fixation
    with her because shes popular to boot and that will always be a
    hit for her and her huge navy around the globe. Everything she does
    is put under the spot light some she want and some she don’t. No mattet
    how she is posted and talked about we all know that the POSITIVE is the
    post posted and talked about. But right about now she will take it all the
    positive and the negative because she and her well oiled team just do not
    give a Phuck because she is the “HBIC” and no one and i mean no one can
    deny her that. She has far EXCEEDED many who has been in the industry twice as long as she has and for her making bank this year and the last couple of years and making more than many who or considered bigger and better that is
    sweet music to her navy ears all around the Globe.

  21. Gilberto June 4, 2012

    Please, TGJ. You guys are really biased. You love to see some stan wars here just to get more hits. Let this topic flop, people! Don’t comment here.

  22. Lax June 4, 2012

    Rih might not ever be a powre house vocalist but she can still get it up and she is clearly the most talked about and bashed super star in the industry. Mostly because many know that she is paid and their asses aren’t and that right there is enough to
    help her , her team and her navy to keep going the distance with her no matter what her haters call her and no matter how her haters tries to bash her by slandering her and name calling her every nasety name in the book. When she is called dirty, vile and filty names that just goes to show the level of hate, jealously and pain Rihanna causes so many who hate her so hard. Why don’t you haters get off yo asses and work and find yourselves something to help yo broke, worthless bum bytche asses
    make it to that forbes list to show the world just how IMPORTANT it is to get a #1 ALBUM, See as it stand there or many who had #1 albums but still they did not make bank and their names or no place to be found or seen on the ALL IMPORTANT LIST THAT REALLY COUNTS.
    PS
    The reason that the navy know that the FORBES LIST COUNTS is because yo bumb asses or always yapping about how BEYONCE made the list without working as hard as the others worked to make that list. Cough*** And i am sure
    that many who made that list have no problem with working to make their paper.
    So it is a FACT that the FORBES LIST IS A TRUE MEASURING STICK TO HOW, WHAT AND WHEN A ARTIST HAS TRULLY MADE IT, OKAY. So say what you will or may #1 album or not RIHANNA MADE IT TO THAT ALL IMPORTANT #4 POSITION ON THE MOST IMPORTANT LIST “THE FORBES LIST” AND GUESS
    What shes just getting warmed up stay bitter, pressed and mad and try to figure out how is it that if she can’t seem to get a #1 album in the US tHEN…HOW IS IT THAT SHE DID THE DAM THING AND MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO THAT FORBES LIST, THERE OR MANY WHO WILL BE FOREVER BITTER BUM BYTCHES BECAUSE THEY CAN TALK ALL THE SMACK THEY WANT TO AND KEEP CALLING HER ALLOF THE NASETY NAMES AND WE DO UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THROUGH ALL OF YO S*** YO FAVE’S NAME IS STILL NOT GOING TO GET ADDED TO THAT “WINNER CIRCLE LIST” UNTIL YO BROKE WORTHLESS ASS ACHIEVE IT, IN THE INDUSTRY THEY DO NOT GIVE YO ASS JACK S*** YOU HAVE TO EARN IT AND RIHANNA HAS PROVEN OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT SHE’S A “BAWWWWWWSE”, DEAL WITH IT OR FIND YOUSELVES A TALL CLIFF AND TAKE A DIVE OFF IT….KEEP BASHING RIHANNA AND LESS WATCH AND SEE TOGETHER HER NEXT “PLAY”!!!!!!

  23. BajanTasha June 4, 2012

    Ya’ll really need to get off rihanna’s d***. Rihanna can sing but its just that her vocals arent that high and so what. She can hit high notes but not as high as hudson,dione or Huston but she has her own style of singing. Stop bashing the f****** girl and honestly start doing a spread or video on real news!

  24. doomster June 4, 2012

    whatever. while you’s threating her like a sandbag she still doin’ her thing and give a f*ck about you blog and that hundred commenters – there’s millions others out there. still tho sam, i wonder where your frustration comes from. you’s a talentless ass too but didn’t make it into the biz? rihanna sure got lucky she met jay-z to give her boost. still jay-z’s hand is the f*cker that milks that sh*t with a stupid contract she scripted underage. she’s like in a biz-cage i guess and gotta do the sh*t no matter what. as long as she can put her immature nature on it, she’s good. sure, if she’d act up she probably get’s fired and thrown away like a rag.

    my thoughts.

    • doomster June 4, 2012

      on that side where she out of the cage the thing doesn’t look any better. she can’t manage anything. she’s stil alil immature and only learned howto sell s***. this cool for a while but not all that. other’s what she thinks is cool is throwing that controversial headlines to get some buzz and attention, this lil girl inside wants. this’ fast food. you see what she is as a bizwoman herself. not really anything.

      sure looks good. holla

      • doomster June 4, 2012

        forgot to say. talent doesn’t matter in these days music biz. you have to be someone or made someone and just be a good entertainer no matter what directon that entertainment takes. so atleast forget about the talent thing. 😉

    Total number-one hits: By 2011 Rihanna had 10, and is the youngest artist to ever hit that mark—she topped Mariah Carey. Plus, she did it faster than any solo artist in Billboard’s history: less than five years to 10 number ones! Low album sales in todays age of bootlegging and open source music file sharing doen’t mean a thing and as Music critics – you should already know this! You just use artist like Rihanna and Chris Brown to get hits to your site – using the same old reharshed & recycled views from your last blog entries on her! Ok we get it you think she cant sing and is only good at modelling! How many times can you labour he same tired point – especially when her success says otherwise! #FAIL

    This year has not been good for Rihanna…press wise or professional. We have officially seen her down fall and she has officially become a running joke. She can either take 6 months to a year off or she will burn out completely by the year 2014 if not sooner. If yall Rihanna stans/fans can’t see that well then hey, sucks for you, but its kewl. Roc Nation created Rita to fill the void when Little Miss Sushine gets Eclipsed….PERMANENTLY.

    • barbie June 4, 2012

      they don’t get it. It is not humanly possible to continue at the rate she is going and not burn out. But she can’t take a break otherwise she is history. for people who actually create, a break is is not really a break. it is a time to recharge and recreate, get ideas together, plan for the next big thing when you’ve recuperated. It is a time to grow and develop, improve overall. The RIHtards won’t ever get it.

    This confuses me. You get two queens and a comedian to give advice about and to Rihanna. This is classic TGJ style. We all see past your facade. You need the hits on this site and a Rihanna post will do it.

    It’s funny that you criticize her for “low” album sells, but in the post above this (see Biggest Selling Artists of All Time), Rihanna made the list…..and was #10 at that. Oh, and this is with chart titans like Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Elvis Presley.

  33. TeamBreezy June 4, 2012

    the fact that Rihanna can probably “outsing” legends like :
    Madonna
    Britney Spears
    Paula Abdul
    Janet Jackson
    and so on ….

    makes this post laughable .. that bish Rih isnt going anywhere any time soon ..
    TGJ has been trying to make this argument for a long time…7 years later shes the highest selling digital artist in the US and #10 all time in the UK ..

    LOUD and TTT were among the highest selling ww albums of 2011!

      lmfao but Janet sings in tune.

      • Stephen June 4, 2012

        Doesn’t matter, Rihanna can sing better than Lady GaGa, Madonna, Britney Spears, Chris Brown, J.Lo, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber

    • Lax June 4, 2012

      Thanks Team Breezy!

      • TeamBreezy June 4, 2012

        Ur welcome 🙂

        @Marcus
        ..Janet sings in tune cuz she whispers and mimes most of her music .. I love her, but lets get real

  34. ENOUGH ONIKA June 4, 2012

    Seriously, this post is f**king stupid. Samantha, Patricia and the rest of “I wish I was Rihanna” queens are obviously jealous. Im NO stan for Rihanna by all means but you actually recorded a video asking this dumb*ss question? F*cking pathetic.

  35. Asking if Rihanna’s reign is over won’t make it so. June 4, 2012

    If Rih-Rih’s reign were to end, who would this site shade constantly(while quietly stanning for that person)?

      I was thinking the same thing, who would they run to then

    BOTH B****** have so much money that they could easily shut this website down within a minute !

  37. MissImpartial June 4, 2012

    Shouldn’t you be concentrating on Beyonce’s reign instead of Rihanna’s she needs it more.

    • t June 4, 2012

      You really need help for your beyonce obsession i swear. How does bey need it more when she had the 1st lady and everybody and their mama praising her performances last week calling her the best. Rihanna is the one who movie flopped and album cant even go #1 or platinum. Gtfoh!

      • MissImpartial June 4, 2012

        First of all I don’t care what the Obama lady says hope they going to be voted out anyways. Rihanna sold as much albums as Beyonce more singles than Beyonce as for prformances she might not be good at it but she is still selling. As for Rihanna’s flop movie grossed more than Beyonce’s horrible movies such as Pink Friday and Obssesed.And if you do not care for my comments you can always ignore them.

      • Lax June 4, 2012

        Rihanna is just as important if not more important than
        beyonce is, you dumb nutt. Just because the obama’s praises beyonce and the hive
        thanks she next to or better than god does not make it so.

  38. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) June 4, 2012

    Rihanna will be nobody with time. Only talented people remain on people´s minds once the prime of the artists is long past.
    A big example: Olivia Newton John. Well she sang way way better than Rihanna, way better. But still the example is valid: she had big success specially on singles charts in the USA, “Physical” was really big, huge single. And she was an absolutely pop darling. What about her now? Does anybody think of her when listing or remembering music from the past? Or people who impacted the music world? Who made history? Who reinvented something? Who owns true classics? Timeless artist? Something special?…. NO!
    And I like her, she wa slovely, we all loved Grease and her songs were catchy. But that´s it
    Rihanna is that same case, only that she is way way less talented. Much worse vocally, and she can´t do some dancing either or act, like Olivia. I mean, Rihanna is… nobody in a couple of decades

    • Lax June 4, 2012

      Buttttt John many of them or going to be a nobody soon
      deery, so what ever or you trying to say that even though she
      made bank this pass year and shes #4 on the forbes list and on the 100 most
      influential list and have 56 million fb, 20 million twitter
      and over a billion youtube views and she tops the list of the soon
      to be forgotten RELAX TO YO TALL GLASS OF STFU,,,,

      • Lax June 4, 2012

        John she also had success selling the most digital sales in the
        US ever OR DID YOU FORGET, LIKE YOU ALWAYS DOES TRYING TO PULL HER BACK SOME STEPS.
        She has sold over 15 million records in the uk, shes a ARTIST OF THE DECADE AND ARTIST OF THE CENTURY LOOK IT UO JOHN AND READ THE PHCKING CREDITS AS KERI SAYS.

  39. theman June 4, 2012

    TGJ move on, how many of these kinda posts will y’all make? For a site that doesn’t care for Rihanna why do y’all keep posting about her???? Shut the f*ck up & move on…….. If you don’t like her nor care for her talent then stop posting about her period……….

    • theman June 4, 2012

      Then you always gotta bring Beyonce fans into the equation with all of their exaggerating. 1+1 is an okay song. They act like that song is groundbreaking. That Patrick dude is always up Beyonce’s a**. Can he ever do commentary without mentioning her.

    • Lax June 4, 2012

      Because rihanna is a hard worker, a go getter
      and shes SOOOOOOO EXCITINNNNG AND EASY FOR THEM TO
      HATE AND POKE FUN AT, ALL OF THE TIME. If they don’t
      post on her her navy the few who do visit will find other blog
      site to visit and they know this. Beyonce is off the market
      shes a wifey now and i mean rihanna is like i stated NEWS,,,

    Indeed it is! With Battleship flopping hard in the US….AND where have u been has been struggling to even break the hot 100 top 10 I’d say it is. On top of that ttt hasn’t even sold 900k in the us and its been out since end of last year

    • Lax June 4, 2012

      You shut yo ass all the way up because rihanna is higher than christina on that forbes list
      At lest rihsnna was in a movie for it to flop, why you always mad though???

      • Lax June 4, 2012

        You or always negtive and you keeps up with her better than i do and i am a fan/navy what do that tell yo silly ass.

      • christinastherealtalent June 4, 2012

        The only reason I know a lot about her success in the us is because I live here and trust nobody in the us is checking for her. And the only reason Rihanna probably ranks higher on Forbes right now is because she’s worked more in the past year than Christina has you idiot.

      • Lax June 4, 2012

        aND YOU NUMB NUTT WHOS FAULT IS IT THAT OTHERSW OR NOT WORKING
        AS HARD???? lAST TIME I CHECKED MONEY DID NOT CARE WHO OWNES IT. yOU ALL PRAISES BEYONCE TO HIGH HEAVENS
        OVER HER MILLIONS AND YET YOU TALKS A HUMDRED MILES OF S*** BECAUSE RIHANNA IS WORKING AND MADE IT TO NUMBER 4 ON THAT FORBES LIST AND SHE DID IT SOONER THAN XTINA DID IT , CHECK IT OUT AND SCHOLL YO HATEFUL ASS ON THE FACT, AND HATE ON YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF S***.

    I hope she falls back JUST ENOUGH where the old her (Music of the Sun & A Girl Like Me) comes back…but no further.

  42. Benron June 4, 2012

    NOTICE HOW EVERYONE IGNORED THIS FLOP POST AND THEY MOVED IT UP TO THE TOP! Rihanna has 3 movies, an albu mand a worldwide arena tour planned to come next year, being the big name she already is do you think this will stop her?
    oH AND p.s. she has a shoot for vita coco for you JSYK!

  43. PrettigurlrockD June 4, 2012

    Lets add this up logic wise:

    6 albums in 6 years because of heavy marketing strategies to stay relevant and still no number 1 album.

    Live performances panned cuz she hasn’t a lot of talent.

    Depending on image and controversial lifestyle to be made a hot topic

    Pop songs that will be overlooked years to come

    She has never been praised by legends for her talent and usually when u r u know u r the s***.

    Her last album is a flop and she can not get hit besides we found love to save her dear life.

    Yep, she is sooo 2007-2010. Her time is almost up. Thats what happens when u infuse little talent and little substance together in ur artistry and u r a puppet.

    • Benron June 4, 2012

      Lol, we found love was numbr one for 10 weeks, and take care was a big hit, Birthday cake was number 2 on urban/r&b/whatever radio and WHYB is at #11 jumping the top 10 next week!

    • Lax June 4, 2012

      Bytches like you want her time to be up, tell you
      what if Rihanna’s time is up then SO IS BEYONCE’S TIME, NUMB NUTT!!!!!!

  44. Breann June 4, 2012

    B****, is he “going to hit her”? Who is this tramp? In fact who are all these homely looking tricks? Don’t worry about Rihanna, Chris Brown or Rita Ora. All three have talent, money and good looks. They will be just fine.

  45. Jer June 4, 2012

    Please. Yal got a voodoo doll and s*** on this b**** but she still kills it. You should be asking the same question about your fave BeYAWNce. Who hasnt had a hit in 3 years but released 6 singles off her last album and it barely sold a million copies. For someone whos SO TALENTED and SO LOVED people sure dont show it. Ive never seen a singer so hated so obviously like Rihanna. You BIONCI stans are mentally ill. Its disgusting. Bunch of bully bloggers. I met a BeYAWNce stan at a party this gorl was all 4.5 feet trying to stan for BeYAWNce at MY party. The stan tried they really tried to run to my iphone and skip Rihannas “We found Love” Uht uhnn SHE had ta go. Always hating. Always pressed. That should be Beyawnces new parfume. PRESSED. Just for the stans

    • Meh June 4, 2012

      Cannot stop laughing lol

    • Ohreally June 4, 2012

      Rihanna has WFL, uDa1, TC, BC, TTT, and WHYB (6 singles) out and TTT has not crossed the 1 mil mark so that was a failed attempt at trying to shade Bey….Girl and your story is a fail! So basic, you are playing music from your iphone? Girl step your game up play it from your MAC or IPad. Broke ass Navy have a seat in the nearest theater to support that FLOP ass battleshit.

  50. jojojoker June 4, 2012

    clearly by making this same statemnet on your blog every 3 months shows that rih is going nowhere and the only thing that reallly bothers me about this is the low album sales comment when

    music of the sun-2million w.w
    girl like me- 4million
    gggb-8 million
    rated r-3million
    loud-6-million
    talk that talk so far-2.7

    25.7 million sold worldwide is great during this decade and at the age of 24, also yall make it like rihanna is the worst popstar alive when katy perry, kesha,britney spears, and nicki are all way less talented–vocally and performance wise so goodbye TGJ

    • danny b June 4, 2012

      rihanna doesnt touch Britney in her hey day… in fact, I’d say Rihanna and Britney are almost equal performance and music wise TODAY. And Nicki is debatable.

      • jojojoker June 4, 2012

        um no because rihanna looks alive in her videos today, sings live and and pulls off great performances 90% of the time. like we found love at grammys, where have you been snl and loud tour so yea rihanna is the s***…be mad

        also i do agree britney was great in her hey day but she never sung live and she basically just danced so if rihanna did that she would be amazing too. like in her vouge perfomance so bye!!

    • Lax June 4, 2012

      Amen and no matter how they tries to tear her down she
      is still doing the dam thing and shes unbothered by the bull shyt.

    • Stephen June 5, 2012

      You’re right. But when mentioning Rihanna being vocally better than Britney, Katy, Ke$ha…you forgot to add Lady GaGa to that list

  51. Gaaglooo! June 4, 2012

    TGJ, Seeing All These People Walking Around With Their Big Beer Belly In Their Underwear And ,Tanned like Tomatoes In Cuba, Is More Exciting Than Your News! Next!

  52. danny b June 4, 2012

    YASSS T’Quan for that Madonna comment…. That was EVERYTHING and #TRUTH!!!

    And while I do like Rihanna’s music but don’t necessarily respect her as an artist per say, I’ve gotten to the point where Im indifferent about her. I worry about the likes of my faves Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Usher than to be so obsessed with Rihanna’s career. If she never got a recording contract, I and the world wouldn’t be missing anything. And if youre not spending money on her, why care so much about what she is or isnt doing? But I do think her talent is VERY limited…not as much as others, but still VERY limited and somewhat overrated.

  53. Lax June 4, 2012

    The world is full of musical talents and its different strokes for different folks. Rihanna has her following and it is strong, because you can tell from her tour and her sales and where she placed on the who made the paper this year and last year for that matter. I say if you don’t like her then leave her post and find yo love and live happily ever after. Rihanna isn’t going any where and she is still working while many of you or driving yo selves up a wall over what she coulda, shoulda done and it don’t matter to a hill of beans in the real worl shes a money maker and shes working on
    strengthing her bran and building her empire and if she has reached her peak then so has all the rest of them like beyonce, ciara, nicki, and countless they have reached their peaks too, ass wipes.

  54. skintightjeans June 5, 2012

  56. jeremiah June 6, 2012

    um lemme say i hate rihanna so much
    but i love how you say britney can be a legend… f*** she cant even sing live anymore what the hell are you guys smoking
    rihanna has a better chance of being a legend than britney and thats not saying much because riri doesnt have the talent to back it up
