‘Styled To Rock’: Rihanna Reality Show Tanks

Published: Thursday 30th Aug 2012 by David

She may be able to rake in the numbers when it comes to moving singles, but it seems Rihanna is struggling to succeed outside of music yet again.

For, after her debut movie ‘Battleship’ broke the record for being the lowest grossing movie with a budget of $200 million or more, her first television series ‘Styled To Rock’ has met a PR crisis this week- following embarrassingly low viewing figures.

Details below…

Despite the plugging the show to her 25 million or so Twitter followers, the singer has struggled to draw in audiences of over 100,000 viewers per week since its launch three weeks ago, despite it’s favorable 9pm airtime slot.

In fact, in what spells disaster for its network Sky Living, the show is currently pulling under the network’s weekly average for a series aired at 9pm- which usually sits at the 150,000 figure.

As it stands, its first week drew in 95,000 while its second week pulled an unfortunate 79,000 viewers- followed by an audience of 110,000 when its third episode aired on Tuesday.

Problematic, as it losing out to rival programs which do not have the benefit of Rihanna’s supposed star power, which boasts 60 million singles and 25 million albums sold worldwide.

In her defense, Sky programmer Stuart Murphy explained:

It was trending on Twitter and Rihanna is the biggest star in the world. Find me a channel controller who would turn down Rihanna in her own series.

Our two cents:

Well, as the folk over at ‘Battleship’, Roc Nation and Island Def Jam know all too well, Rihanna’s ‘star power’ has only ever translated into single sales, and single sales only.

For, in what we’d say is becoming an undeniable fact, Ol Riri isn’t as influential as her team would have the world believe, which explains their ‘one LP a year’ strategy with the singer.

This, designed to force feed the masses with material wasted on a woman who despite being one of the world’s most respected Pop stars fails time and time again to impress outside of the Hot 100.

Like, as her live performances scream all too clearly, smoke and mirrors can only ever hide so much.

Indeed, while #1 singles and lucrative endorsements may be enough to satisfy ‘the fans’, they’re little consolation to a network who paid top dollar to have her executive produce and star in the show…only to watch it tank and ultimately become ‘an expensive flop’.

A ‘flop’, which may hinder Riri’s chances of scoring a second season once season one wraps.

        This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up becuase if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.

    She isn’t even relevant on her own show. She only said things like “I like this!”, “Oh! This is good”. LAME! And the prize for the winner… O-M-G. It’s the biggest BS I’ve seen. The winner will dress Rihanna on a concert. That’s it. LMFAO. Very, very, low budget show.

    What good are twitter followers and fans when those same folks won’t support you?

    You expect to get at least half or at least a quarter, which means The majority of Rihanna’s Twitter followers don’t give a damn about her success. They only want to watch her wild out and post blunt pics.

    Hopefully other business ventures work better for her, because so far based on the movies and this show she’ll have to keep putting out new albums every year.

    • Lax August 30, 2012

      @GILBERTO….& Company!
      In this age of a la carte music consumption, it’s not unusual for a megastar’s album sales to pale next to the performance of individual tracks. Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream LP has sold less than 2 million copies, but its five number-one singles have moved over 20 million digital downloads. Even middleweight artists like OneRepublic and The Script routinely sell millions of copies of their hits.
      Yet none of the songs from 4 have gone platinum. The album’s biggest success, the elegant breakup ballad “Best Thing I Never Had,” has sold a little under 800,000 copies and peaked at #16 on the Hot 100.

      Again, this is not terrible, but for an artist of Beyonce’s stature, it’s surprising. In celebrity culture, she’s a hurricane, but in the world of music, the world where she ostensibly “belongs,” she seems to be downgrading to a tropical storm.
      Hmmmm Hurrican to Tropical Storm!

      • Lax August 30, 2012

        It’s possible, of course, that people just don’t like the songs on 4 as much as they liked “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” and “Irreplaceable,” and that without Beyonce’s intense public approval, they’d be even less popular than they are. She might have a smash hit next year and prove me entirely wrong.
        But I wonder. Is it possible she’s losing her status as a chart-topping juggernaut? It happens to everyone, after all
        from time to time.

      @DOO DOO Yes we know and we also know that
      is why she’s on the list top ten under 30
      When it comes to celebrities under 30, it’s the women who are bringing home the bacon. Forbes is out with its annual list of the highest-paid celebrities under 30, and four out of the top five are female, including the #3 earner, Rihanna. She raked in $53 million from touring, her fragrances, her endorsement deals with Vita Coco and Nivea and, of course, sales of singles like “We Found Love.”

      Lil Wayne also made the list, coming in at #8. According to Forbes, he scored his most lucrative year yet, pulling in $27 million, from sales of his Carter IV album, and touring. The YMCMB boss is on course to make even more dough, according to Forbes, thanks to his Trukfit clothing line and an endorsement deal with Mountain Dew.

    • Lax August 30, 2012

      Rihanna all you ever have to do is pay close ATTENTION
      to the KAAAAAANG BEY!

      Beyoncé has barely paused for breath since; the singer is on to her 24th solo single, has appeared in eight feature films and performed at Barack Obama’s inauguration ball. Though we shouldn’t forget that she also collected a hefty fee to perform for Colonel Gaddafi’s son on New Year’s Eve, perhaps the result of bad advice.

      There have, inevitably, been rumours as to why she has been more successful than her Destiny’s Child counterparts, namely that she received support from her father. But the singer was the epitome of humble when she allowed Taylor Swift to take over her acceptance speech at the MTV VMAs last year, following Kanye West’s infamous intrusion. Even if you do believe that the whole incident was staged, it’s this public facade of grace and dignity with which she is best known.

      Not that we will ever truly know what goes on behind that 100-watt smile. Interviews reveal little about Beyoncé. She barely discussed her relationship with Jay-Z until they married in a private ceremony in 2008. A rare glimpse behind her armour was offered when she admitted that earlier in her life, when Destiny’s Child underwent a bitter lineup change, she had suffered from depression. For most of her time in the limelight, though, she has remained tight-lipped beyond a few references to being blessed and just wanting to give her fans 100%. From any other pop star this might seem cliched, but that’s probably because not many other pop stars can tear through a seemingly endless world tour, perform numerous special-guest appearances with her all-female band or maintain an air of ubiquity since the release of I Am … Sasha Fierce in 2008.

      Beyoncé is a singer. Alicia Keys is a singer. Mary J Blige is a singer. Adele is a singer. Rihanna isn’t. Rihanna is on the same category as Katy Perry: karaoke singer.

        I agree with you. Rihanna is not on that level. She has a long way to go in order to get there. But I think it’s unfair to portray her as a flop because her reality TV show about her clothing line underperformed. It’s not the end of the world.

Please how did 4closure do again world wide? Didn’t it under perform against Talk That Talk and let us not forget after releasing a barrage of Flop single after Flop single, how did Talk That Talk flop again??

    Samantha is too stupid to understand that an album is a portfolio and releasing singles ads to the success of the albums. You may say they are $1.29 blah blah blah but sell enough of those and it ads to the overall success of the album. So even though 4closure may have sold more than Talk That Talk in the US, Rihanna did far much better worldwide and if you ad the singles, blew 4closure out of the water.

    Just whay I´ve always said: a flop.
    A flop cos the amount of money, producers and radio airplay wasted on this girl I´ve not seen it in any other act these last 5 years and still she can´t sell like a megastar at the peak of her career should do to save her life. It´s all based on itunes singles sales and releasing 8 generic singles per year hoping half of them can make an impact on radio (which shouldn´t be too difficult cos they release generic pop songs for that, to appeal radio and teenagers). People are never interested in her as the hype and her first week numbers prove, they just shove “her” generic songs into our brains for months and that way some people buy it little by little (the truth about that excuse her fans always make about Rihanna being a consistent seller and blah blah blah)
    And please I don´t see the connection between Rihanna´s career and Titanic. Titanic sunk but it was the best ship in the world, fabulous. Has Rihanna´s career been that at any point? NO So I don´t see the point. She is just a promoted star destined to flop, not a huge star who achieved it all and is now declining, it´s not that

    Rihanna has lost the casual, generic fan this year majorly. The bad attitude, mouth, and the constant talk of Chris Brown has killed her off. I don’t think she even cares anymore. All she does is pine and cry every dang day about Chris. Dumb chick.

    @RIHATAN, SLEAZY Thanks always for the shout Outs
    i love it…and

    Talk That Talk was released worldwide in late November to an opening of over 500,000 copies sold — easily clearing her career biggest launch. Following, just two weeks later, Talk That Talk continued to break Rihanna records by becoming her fastest album to shift over a 1,000,000 units. Having sold a career total of over 26,000,000 albums bodes well with her retaining her lead as the most successful album’s artist since her debut over half a decade ago.

    With such a welcoming reception from the public, naturally came a new high of recognition this year from nearly every prestigious outlet in the music industry. The year began with a Grammy win for the lead single off Loud, “Only Girl (In The World)”, in “Best Dance Recording”. Rihanna performed twice that night, her five-time Grammy nominated collaboration, “Love The Way You Lie”, and her upcoming 2012 nomination, “What’s My Name”. The performances were met with rave reviews including Time Magazine calling for the “2011 Grammys be renamed: The Rihanna Show”. (The Grammy committee clearly took notice for the upcoming 2012 ceremony, as the recently revealed nominations include a nod in the highly coveted “Album of The Year” category for Loud.) Following the Grammys, she jetted across the Atlantic to attend the Brit Awards the following day, in which she won “International Female Artist of The Year”. Rihanna took to twitter to express her excitement to her fans: “Came with a Grammy, left with a Brit!!!” In May, we saw Rihanna kicking off the return of the Billboard Music Awards with a performance of her #1 single, “S&M”, with fellow pop star Britney Spears. She was awarded that night with “Female Artist of The Year”, based on statical success on their charts. She followed out the year with a series of wins including People’s Choice (Pop Artist, Song, & Music Video), American Music Awards (R&B Album), BET Awards (Female R&B Artist), and a Soul Train Award.

    Samantha, you couldn’t wait to write something negative about Rihanna!! You stalk the sh*t outta her ass then run to TGJ to report any negative findings you can (well negative in YOUR view). Funny, Rita Ora and other UK flops who have significantly low sales and multiple other failures, is praised and made excuses for. What kind of sh*t is that? If Rita had a reality show, do you really think people would watch?!? Other than your queen ass and the 50 “Rita Bots” she has in the states?? I know one day all this shady biased sh*t is gonna come back to slam you Samantha..can’t wait.

    Rihanna’s disappointing ratings?
    (UKPA) – 6 hours ago 
    Rihanna’s new TV show Styled To Rock has failed to set the ratings alight, according to reports.
    The Sun said that the singer’s new Sky Living fashion series, which is executive produced by the star, fell to just 79,000 viewers.
    Fronted by Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts, it has featured guests including Kanye West, Cheryl Cole and Katy Perry and sees designers competing to design an outfit for Rihanna.
    The newspaper said that the show debuted with an overnight viewing figure of just 95,000 – down on the channel’s usual audience of 153,000 – but fell to 79,000 for the second episode before rising to 110,000 on Tuesday.
    Sky told the newspaper that the ratings were far higher when repeats and catch-up figures were included, with 440,000 seeing the first episode.
    An insider said: “It airs on a tough night against big shows such as Jack Whitehall’s comedy Bad Education and it’s really difficult to launch a new show against strong competition.”

      God made the world for the delight of human beings– if we could see His goodness everywhere, His concern for us, His awareness of our needs: the phone call we’ve waited for, the ride we are offered, the letter in the mail, just the little things He does for us throughout the day. As we remember and notice His love for us, we just begin to fall in love with Him because He is so busy with us — you just can’t resist Him. I believe there’s no such thing as luck in life, it’s God’s love, it’s His.

  44. commanderofthedancefloor August 30, 2012

    really beyhive your talking about movies flopping?? hello you stan for beyonce, remember her first few movies, a hip hopera, and the fighting temptations? which the fighting temptations had a budget of 30 million and made 32 million. Did her movie career end after that? no, ok so what are yall still going on for? grasping at straws.

    • CzarM August 30, 2012

      You idiot. Carmen was a made-for-TV musical. And if Fighting Temptations was produced on a budget of 30 million and earned 32 million, then it made its budget back…which means it isn’t technically a flop, even if it wasn’t a runaway success. Battleship DIDN’T make its money back. And the budget, promotion and commercial expectations for that film were massive. Much moreso than Fighting Temptations. The studio lost its shirt with that b******* and everyone associated with it now has a s******** on their resume because of it. Rihanna’s name and wannabe film career is now attached to a EPIC blockbuster disaster, which taints her bankability a helluva lot more than Carmen and Fighting Temptations does Beyonce’s.

      • commanderofthedancefloor August 30, 2012

        Girl you sound dumb,

        battleship had a budget of exactly 209 million, the movie made over 302 million it made way above its budget!!!!

        now you can have several seats.

        oh and if it does hurt rihanna obviously its not showing yet, steven spielberg had talks with rihanna over doing a movie. so it isnt hurting her yet.

    • CzarM August 30, 2012

      That was the production budget. How much additional millions were spent on advertising/promotion and distribution? The movie did not turn a profit and put the studio in the red.

      Don’t take a seat, girl take a nap.

      Spielberg HAD talks with Rihnanna, you say? Hmmm. Interesting that you say ‘had,’ as opposed to ‘is in.’

      • commanderofthedancefloor August 30, 2012

        So your saying that they spent over 100 million on promotion? Girl go back to school and learn something. You think they would of spent more than half of what it took to make the movie on just promotion? Girl bye.

        You need to get some sense before you talk!!!!!

        Also yes they had talks, or for all we know they are still in talks. HAD can mean they already reached an agreement, or rihanna declined seeing as how speilberg reached out to her. Either way this proves that no matter how the movie did it didnt affect rihanna.

    I guess making hit songs isn’t enough for TGJ. That’s the only thing she’s good at, and that’s enough for her, for now. She isn’t the caliber of Beyonce, Lady Gaga or Adele. All her endeavors outside of making #1 singles have flopped because people care only about her personal life and her smashing singles. They want nothing else. She’s STILL a star TGJ. Deal with it! Until they drop her from her 360 deal, she’s STILL a bankable star.

    • Lax August 30, 2012

      Haters, scumbags,
      Life as it happens in RIHANNA Music Home…
      Rihanna’s work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including five American Music Awards, eighteen Billboard Music Awards, two BRIT Awards and five Grammy Awards. She has achieved a total of eleven number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the youngest solo artist to achieve the feat.[2] Billboard named Rihanna the Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s decade, and ranked her as the seventeenth artist of the same decade.[3][4] She is the highest-selling digital artist in US history, having sold 47,571,000 singles as of 2012.[5] Furthermore, she has also shipped 7.3 million album units in the United States as of September 2011.[6] Some of her singles have earned their place on the list of best-selling singles worldwide.

      • Steebie J. August 30, 2012

        You’re not helping disprove TGJ’s point that Rihanna is nothing more than a singles/internet artist since you used the word “singles” and “digital” at least six times.

    Rihanna’s career makes me wonder. Your selling all these singles, but flopping in everything else. Also, people bragging about singles, but if you take away the single sales that she was only a feature on like Eminem, JAY-Z, TI, etc, how much will her sales really be.

    I wonder how much of that 53 million that her stans are bragging went to Rihanna. With record label, producers, writers, management team, PR team, promo, tour promo, etc. I’m saying not much. Oh, and Nivea who sponsored her LOUD tour did not renew her contract, Kodak went bankrupt. Rihanna isn’t balling like she or her stans would like you to think.

    • Lax September 3, 2012

      She made 90 million and after all was settled she had 53 and you can bet yo sweet ass RIHANNA’S bills are payed, Scumbag.

  58. ADELE August 31, 2012

    Last comment, but to say Beyonce 4 flop, well at least she had an excuse, and could not perform like she wanted to, but Beyonce was still able to sell out four shows in seconds, and have a total audience of 21, 000 people. Oh, and those tickets were not 10 dollars, or 48 pounds. Her cheapest ticket was 185 dollars, and her most expensive was 520 dollars. Rihanna could never do that, that’s the reason for the cheap tickets. Also, I’m glad that people are finally seeing the light with Rihanna. Her team is doing so much shady s*** to make it seem like she’s selling. What was the reason behind four of Rihanna’s albums flopping. The day TTT was released she was spamming millions with the itunes link to the album, so that album should have never flopped, but it did, so don’t come for Beyonce 4 when both albums sold about the same amount, and Rihanna’s album was more pop/dance, when Beyonce was more old school RnB. Another thing, I hope they promote Rita Ora like they do Rihanna, because she’s actually a really great singer.

  59. MaginaMonroe September 2, 2012

    Xtina….who became the epitome of flop in 2010, and has yet to score a solo hit since 2008 pulled in nearly $30 million for the last Forbes year( Jun-June),Beyonce and her mediocre success pulled in $40 million Rihanna pulled in only $53 million with album sales, single sales and endoresments.Shes had 7 ERA’s and about to head into her 8th and only has a networth of $72 million! Queen Bey has >300 mill with only 3 MAJOR era’s! Rihanna is singles artist and a label h**!

    Many of us are slaves to our minds. Our own mind is our worst enemy. We try to focus, and our mind wanders off. We try to keep stress at bay, but anxiety keeps us awake at night. We try to be good to the people we love, but then we forget them and put ourselves first. And when we want to change our life, we dive into spiritual practice and expect quick results, only to lose focus after the honeymoon has worn off. We return to our state of bewilderment. We’re left feeling helpless and discouraged. It seems we all agree that training the body through exercise, diet, and relaxation is a good idea, but why don’t we think about training our minds.
