    BEAUTIFUL!

    She really is a beauty, too bad she no talent otherwise she would really be great. Im not denying she has had A LOT of success, but she will never be “great” because she sucks so bad live and can’t sing at all. Kind of a joke. 🙁

      Old frog voiced Rihanna. I laugh every time somebody calls themselves posting videos to “prove” her naysayers wrong after someone calls her out for be TALENTLESS because these video ALWAYS fail to actually do so. This big headed b**** can’t sing. Period! I know she can’t sing for s***, you know she can’t sing for s*** and SHE knows she can’t sing for s***. Rihslut has zero singing ability and sounds like s*** every time she opens her f*****’ mouth. She’s not even good enough to at least pass for being a studio singer because even on record she sounds AWFUL. Her only talent is getting beat upside her fat head by Chris. You broke h*** will deal.

    “Rihanna is cliche of everything that has ever been disingenuous about the music business. A soulless Barbie Doll, with plastic doll parts, who was plucked off the streets of no where and put on–simply because the outfit was her size. In other words: commerce…created and puppet mastered by money grubbing music executives as a tool to co-opt what is currently popular for fast cash, and pandered to the dingiest of music listeners who are not discerning enough to care.

    You have to give the label, the management, the A&R people, the songwriters, the producers, the directors and the thousand other magicians involved their credit for being savvy enough to outfit this garden-variety debutante with material and promotion to keep her afloat…but let’s be real, there is nothing ‘special’ or ‘unique’ about Rihanna, herself. She has little talent, no personality or strong image, nor does she command the stage. Anyone could have been cast in the role Rihanna plays; she just lucked out. For all intents and purposes, Rihanna is akin to a can of Hormel Chili; basically a canned product with a label (and a ‘sell by’ date) on it.

    The bottom line is that Rihanna was not built to last and is very “replaceable.” This is why she does not take breaks, and repetitiously puts out a generic by-the-numbers pop album every year. Being that she has little ‘star power,’ in order to sustain her momentum she has to continually strike while the iron is hot, while employing a multitude of petty ‘stunts’ to get attention (tacky wigs, brothel attire, referencing her tumultuous relationship Chris Brown years later.) The moment she sits down to catch her breath, ten more record label assembled chippies will be thrown into the ring and the last two standing will be the next “Rihanna.”

    In 2012, no more do we need windup doll acts like Rihanna getting on camera and posing like an androidian cast-off from America’s Next Top Model, while vapidly bleating over an empty dance track, hanging around longer than the fifteen minutes that is typically allotted for manufactured pop stars such as her. It’s just getting sad now, and the quality is dipping. Gone are the pseudo-interesting songs like “Umbrella,” now she is peddling random, monotonous dead air like “We Found Love.” The girl has run her course; at this point she is on autopilot and is fast becoming the equivalent of a skipping record.”

      Continuing the mineral motif after shouting out “yellow diamonds” on “We Found Love,” Rihanna implores her partner to “shine bright like a diamond” as her voice grasps at the upper tips of ecstasy. Produced by longtime collaborators Stargate as well as Benny Blanco, “Diamonds” notably slows the electronic stomp of previous lead singles “Only Girl (In The World)” and “We Found Love,” instead offering a lush, mid-tempo pool of synthesizers and Rihanna’s powerful pipes

        Used to be, whenever the words “Rihanna” and “mature” were used in the same sentence, the latter was followed by “audiences only,” and folks were attempting to decode what she meant by “Birthday Cake.” Yes, for the past few years, Rih Rih has seemingly delighted in pushing both boundaries and buttons, tweaking parental units with a string of hits that were as gleefully raunchy as they were, well, unsubtle.And while she’s still the same girl in her personal life — at least if her Instagram account is to be believed — it appears that, musically, Rihanna may be in the midst of some grand metamorphosis: based on brand-new single “Diamonds,” one can gather that perhaps, at long last, she’s growing up.To be fair, the single’s artwork does feature her rolling diamonds into a joint, but on the song itself, she displays a marked level of (dare I say it?) maturity, one evident in the restrained production and perhaps best exemplified by the first mantra she lays on us: “I choose to be happy.”
        Now, at 24, she appears willing to put past relationship drama behind her (unless she decides to put Chris Brown on the “Diamonds” remix) and embrace the positivity and fulfillment of a fully realized partnership, singing “When you hold me, I’m alive” and admitting “I knew that we’d become one right away.” And she does it with a remarkably clear head, in stark contrast to her previous work, like, say the druggy “We Found Love,” or the whirling “Where Have You Been,” both of which seemed to celebrate bad love in all its forms. This time out, she’s getting by on the hope and promise of better days ahead.

      You’d think, as a result, the song would be somewhat boring, at least in the canon of Rihanna’s other super-charged, super-sexualized hits, but you’d be wrong. Working with an accomplished songwriter like Sia, and in the capable hands of production duo Stargate, “Diamonds” instead delivers its thrills gradually, unspooling on somber synth chords and a simple backbeat, eventually building to a sumptuous chorus. There’s a certain level of complexity to it, and Rihanna’s voice, un-lacquered and free of studio swath, sounds warm, personable and above all sincere. She believes what she’s singing here, which is a big step given the context of her words.

    Rihanna VS Madonna as Official Charts reveals The Official Top 10 Biggest Selling Female Singles Artists Of All Time to celebrate 60 years of the Official Singles Chart!

    “There’s less than a month to go before we’ll be donning our party hats and getting set to blow out the candles (all 60 of them) as we celebrate 60 glittering years of the Official Singles Chart. To whet your appetite for this poptastic occasion, the Official Charts Company today reveal The Official Top 10 Biggest Selling Female Singles Artists Of All Time!

    Madonna tops the chart with a combined UK singles sales total of 17.8 million. The Queen Of Pop made her British chart debut in January, 1984 with Holiday, which peaked at Number 6. However it wasn’t until a year later that she scored her first Official Singles Chart Number 1 with Into the Groove, which incidentally, is her biggest ever selling track. To date, as a lead artist, Madonna has enjoyed 59 Top 10 hits (including 13 Number 1s).

    However, her Madge-sty might soon have a contender for her crown. With a combined singles sales tally as a lead artist of 11.4 million, Rihanna is at Number 2 in our chart. However, given that the 24-year-old Bajan superstar has sold 3 million singles in the last twelve months alone, if Riri continues selling singles at this rate, she could realistically overtake Madonna in the next two-and-a-half years. And she would still only be 27! Bonkers!

    Rihanna is of course known for her prolific collaborations, and while the above figures focus solely on her sales as a lead artist, if you were to add in her collaborations, that would bring her total to a staggering 15.1 million!”

    Kylie Minogue, who is celebrating her 25th year in music this year, is at Number 3 in the chart with a combined singles sales total of 10.2 million copies. To date, Kylie has scored 35 Top 10 hits (including seven Number 1s). Her biggest selling track is 2001′s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.

    Whitney Houston, who tragically passed away in February of this year, is at Number 4 with a sales total of 8.5 million singles, while Lady Gaga has overtaken Britney Spears in the last four months to take fifth place with 7.329 million UK singles sales.”

    When you are Rihanna and have been going strong
    since 2005, it is Refreshing to get great Feed Back
    from Other Artist that are out there on the Battle Ground
    so to say,,,,,Rarely do other Artist who came before Rih
    can truly take claim to Others Inspiring them because
    often times Artist like Beyonce for instance is always
    Knocking doors down for Herself and will never ever
    lift a Hand to pull some one like Rihanna through that
    door they broke down because they are so dam selfish
    and Greedy wanting to hog the show all of the time and
    can’t stand Others Succeeding that Once they go through
    that door they have Knocked down they have some one
    to put that door back Up and it is then Quickly Sealed tight
    and Shut so as to keep Artist like Rihanna and Others Out.

    NOW Rihanna on the Other Hand,,,,,,
    Calvin Harris has confessed that teaming up with Rihanna for her Vodafone Big Top 40 number one single “We Found Love” was the best decision he ever made for his career. Calvin admitted that the track helped increase his popularity with the American audience:

    Calvin Harris Says of Rih, Rih,,,,,,
    “It changed absolutely everything. Career-wise it was the best thing that could ever have happened. For example, in America my tune ‘Feel So Close’ came out about three months before. But when ‘We Found Love’ came out, the radio started playing ‘Feel So Close’ like it was the single after. Then that did really well, it charted well and sold a lot of copies.”

    Kesha Says of Rih, Rih,,,,,,
    Ke$ha has confirmed that her new album “Warrior” does not feature a collaboration with Rihanna, but admitted that she “loves” her. Last month, Ke$ha sparked rumours that she had collaborated with the RiRi star after posting a cryptic picture of a lady holding the star’s logo on Twitter. But during an interview with Capital FM, Ke$ha denied that she had recorded a song with Rihanna – but did acknowledge the influence the star had made on her career:

    “Yeah, I love her. I toured with her a while ago, she’s kind of a mentor to me at the beginning of my career. So absolutely I love her and I have all the respect in the world for her. But I didn’t unfortunately do it on this record.”

    @DTG,,,,,,RIHANNA,,,,,,
    And sure, we don’t know what the rest of her upcoming seventh album will sound like, and it’s entirely possible she’ll drop a raunch-tastic music video to accompany “Diamonds,” though I sort of doubt it. Rihanna seems to be embracing her newfound maturity this time out, which, while probably inevitable, is also a welcome departure. She’s no longer searching for love “in a hopeless place,” she’s found it right in front of her, and for the moment at least, she’s content to stay here.

  11. Lax November 10, 2012

    @DTG,,,,,,RIHANNA HATERS,,,,,,

    We could go into a lot of detail here about how this is the perfect song for Rihanna at his point in her career, how the Sia influence drips from every syllable, how it sounds immediately classic but fiercely modern. We could mention the Lana Del Rey-meets-’Rated R’ feel. We could say all sorts, but as if you’re going to read any of that before you hit ‘play’ .

  12. Lax November 10, 2012

    @DTG,,,,,,Rihanna ,,,,,,Haters

    Rihanna‘s new single “Diamonds” forgoes the neon strobe lights of her recent singles like “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been” for more of a gently glistening vibe to go along with the song’s title. The production scaled back the energy, giving the song a pleasing lightness which helps accentuate RiRi’s strong vocals and slightly different timbre.

  13. Lax November 10, 2012

    @DTG,,,,,,Rihanna,,,,,,Haters
    Most of RiRi’s songs are power moves, undeniable forces that cannot be denied. This one is sly, saying “come on in, the water’s nice” rather than pushing you into the pool. We’ve scoured the web’s reactions to the new Rihanna song, and most reviewers seem to want to hop in for a swim.
