  2. Navy Queen December 30, 2012

    Who the f*** is sia and so what if she did write diamonds you bitter a*** lose ass f**!! I know it hurts that every time you look in a mirror you see a d*** and not a p****

      • PIU December 30, 2012

        Has Roman Reflopped gone platinum yet mama? No. Eat a poisoned p**** b****!Esther would be nothing without Rihanna because esther can’t sell the music. If anything the song is more Rihannas because she made it what is is just by using her voice. How many songs does Nicki or B write by themselves. Zefuckingro.

      • KingB. Queen Nicki December 30, 2012

        Don’t worry about Nicki dear, worry about the results of R****’s h***** test which I can tell you will be a positive result. Damn s*** couldn’t keep her legs closed if her p****’s walls depended on it.

      • PSA (FAF) December 30, 2012

        DEAD @ KingB

        Roman reloaded went platinum in July F** !

        U should’ve asked has it sold a million copies in the US that would’ve been more of a read, dear ! Try again, u need to re-work the facts !

        DEATH @ Op asking who sia is !!! You rihfloppa stans dont even know who pens your faves work ! 🙁

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      @ KingB. Queen Nicki, That was hurtful to say about someone you barely know. I’d never wish such hate upon another. Some of you really need to think twice about the things you say.

  3. dermot December 30, 2012

    “Sia’s Diamonds” b**** shut up it’s ri ri’s

    • KingB. Queen Nicki December 30, 2012

      Who wrote it though?

      • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) December 30, 2012

        Who wrote “king b’s” songs.

      • dermot December 30, 2012

        yes b**** sit down it’s rihannas song noone cares for who wrote it

  4. Ghetto Fab December 30, 2012

    I see that thatshadejuice is still at it! You SEWER QUEENS know damn well this is Rihanna’s song. Get it together!

  5. wrinkle flop ora December 30, 2012

    Sia’s diamonds. Guess what? Sia was trying to make it as a solo singer since the 90’s- She flopped and failed everytime, hence why she was forced into songwriting. Sia is ugly jealous b**** who had never had a hit a songwriter: she failed with bionic xtina and willow smith. Enter rihanna: now everyone wants to work with that old lesbian ugly b****.

    So fall the f*** back, cos without rihanna this b****** second choice career ( after being a solo singer ) was not happening. Diamonds was only a hit cos of Stargate and Rihanan magic. Sia is a f****** wrinkly white b**** who wishes she could have the career rihanna has, hence why she kept her vocals on the track. Bottom line-. diamonds is RIHANNA SONGS. fuckyosongwriter.

    PS: Billboard has just confirmed that Diamonds is on course to sell 300k to 350k this week in the USA making it Double platinum in the USA a lone.

    LOL beyonce has been reduced to having to send her songs to radio to be tested. How is that going? I am still not hearing beyonce on the radio in LA. I thought rita whora was gonna take rih out the game in 2012?

    ON the subject of rita whora, All the white blogs are reporting that here h** ass is f****** some model named Cara Delvigne. EEEWWW A h** and lesbian too. Does b**** even sell or is she just about sucking d*** and p****? LOOK magazine in teh UK have a cover about Rita Whora and jay z having a nasty affair. I hope Beyboon gets and STD.

  6. wrinkle flop ora December 30, 2012

    Id Diamonds is now Double platinum in the USA and platinum in the UK ( 300K ) As well as platinum in Germany ( 100k ) and certified all over europe and canada.

    How much ha sit sold in total? And how does it compare to Beyboon’s last singletro rita whora last single sales?

    • wrinkle flop ora December 30, 2012

      If Diamonds ends up outselling Telephone, Where does that leave Beyboon, cos Telphone is beyboons biggest ‘ hit ‘

      • PSA (FAF) December 30, 2012

        Good for Sia pockets.. lol

  7. King beyonce December 30, 2012

    The funny part is Sam stay saying sia ‘s song b**** nobody cares apart from your f** ass it’s rihanna ‘ name that’s on the charts worldwide so it just makes your blog look sad and s*****!! Am sure kanye don’t even know sia SALTY MUCH hahahaha but that video you have posted says diamonds rihanna remix!!!!! Hahahahahaha what a sad f** Sam is

  8. lewis December 30, 2012

    This post is so lame…

  9. QueenB December 30, 2012

    You are a Beyonce hater but you know a lot of things about her, more than Beyhive ! Smh you’re pathetic get a life B****

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      The Beyhive are the same way with Rihanna, so what were you expecting???????

  10. Gary C December 30, 2012

    The author of this post should be ashamed.
    ‘Diamonds’ was written by Sia but became a hit by Rihanna.

    There needs to be some neutrality for this site to grow. The bias and hate towards specific people is a disgrace. I don’t stan for anyone, I just love music. Many here love the shade back and forth. It can be fun, but essentially it is a news site.

    If you’re going to report music news. Report. Do not twist and colour the facts with your own agenda.

    • Evan December 30, 2012

      Thank you so much for saying this. you took the words right out of my mouth!

      • Natasha December 30, 2012

        Let the church say AMEN!!!!!!!!! Well put GARY C.

    • Touché December 30, 2012

      I completely agree but the authors on this site won’t do it because these type of bias posts bring in hundreds of comments which results in more revenue for them.

    • LALA December 31, 2012

      B**** SHUT UP!!!

  11. Saetana December 30, 2012

    Every time I think TGJ cannot sink lower when it comes to Rihanna, they always seem to manage it – b**** please, Sia may have wrote the song but its not her that has made it a worldwide hit and its not her name on it that is making others want to cover it ;o)

  12. JJFan1814 December 30, 2012

    As if beyonce write her songs?????? Lol you will never see Sam shade Bey like that, but then again, she hasn’t had a recent top hit like Queen Rih Rih.

    Good for Rih getting this exposure! It’d be crazy if Diamonds hit #1 again based off of AirPlay alone! It’s at #2 despite its position on iTunes!

    • TheTruth December 30, 2012

      Beyonce co-writes most of her songs. Get it right r*****.

      • Natasha December 30, 2012

        Exactly idiot, she CO-WRITES them!!!!! Rihanna CO-WRITES some of her songs too. When I buy albums I always check the songs writing credits. Rihanna may not have written songs for her latest album, BUT, she has on her previous. Beyonce has CO- written on all of her albums, and Destiny’s Child albums except for their first or their first two albums. CO-WRITERS they both are. They way SOME of Beyonce’s fans act , its as if Beyonce sole writes all of her songs. Which couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m a fan of BOTH ladies. NOT a stan. So I’m capable of being truthful, no matter whos offended!

  13. OMG (Celine Dion) December 30, 2012

    The shade is getting old and tired now TGJ please be more professional and stop being ratchet and ghetto.

  14. Jer December 30, 2012

    We will see when BeYAWNce performa Ne-yo’s smash hit “Irreplaceable,” Rich Harrison’s masterpiece, “Crazy in Love,” and who can forget The Dream featuring Beyonce “Single Ladies”

    • KingB. Queen Nicki December 30, 2012

      And Rihanna’s p****’s Chlamydia.

      • Natasha December 30, 2012

        Is that all you can come up with??

  15. My forehead tho December 30, 2012

    Death @ Sia’s ‘Diamond’

    This post was a 100% accurate

  16. MISHKA December 30, 2012

    Wow , that pic is gorgeous! Kanye looking like Jesus ^^

  17. Fierce P**** December 30, 2012

    Dermot and others in denial: technically it is Sia’s song since she wrote it, came up with te melody and thats how rihanna sang it. Sam is
    Just obviously trying to be shady again to put Rihanna under a bad light. It is Rihanna’s song as well since she made it popular but songwriters get more credit and royalties for anyone that knows how the music industry works.

    • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) December 30, 2012

      Technically its Rihanna’s cuz she owns it and its released under her name but ok.

  18. Evan December 30, 2012


  19. Bryan Dossome December 30, 2012

    I doubt Sam posted this….David is normally the pathetic one.

    • NavyHeart December 30, 2012

      KIIII. Davidina is pressed because Rita stays flopping.

  20. MCThePlaceToBe December 30, 2012

    So steam pressed. Of all her number ones, how many did Rihanna write? Go on, I’ll wait.

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      You tell us, since you have already checks her #1’s written credits.

    • DragginForMrsCarter December 30, 2012


      • DemiQueenVato December 30, 2012

        Yes B! The haters swear she doesn’t write when even Prince cosigned her.

      • ShouldBU December 30, 2012

        Neyo thinks differently.

    • BeyonceSupremacy December 30, 2012

      That’s right b******! B went to school for performing arts where she learned how to perfect her voice and craft. She is a true musician with a capital M which also stands for money which is what Jay will use to pay for Baby Blue’s college tuition with the royalties from Diamonds. What a wonderful word it must be when your biggest competition makes you money while you’re on maternity leave. Poor dat.

      • TheQueenB December 30, 2012

        I bask in your accurate shade sis. Rihanna say she the boss when its the Queen who sees most of her money. Flop 360 degree deal having b****.

      • Natasha December 30, 2012

        Beyonce is NOT a musician!!!!! A musician is someone that play an instrument. EXAMPLE: Alicia Keys, John Legend, Prince, Paul MCcarthy, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga….and so forth.

      • Touché December 30, 2012

        1)A person who is talented or skilled in music.
        2)A person who plays a musical instrument, esp. professionally.
        3) One who composes, conducts, or performs music, especially instrumental music.

        Technically, most music artists are considered musicians even though they might not play an instrument so yes Beyonce is a musician.

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      Shes NOT a musician!!!!!

  21. fifty shades of gay December 30, 2012

    Its too cold for shade at the moment but it was funny and somewhat true. Although i love Rihanna’s Diamonds i have been a fan of Sia’s music for sometime (regardless of her popularity or success) and as usual Rihanna sings the demos so close to the original recordings, if you listen to neyo’s demo of stupid in love she sings it exactly the same where as Brandy changes it up a bit on her version, if you listen to any of the Ester Dean demo’s it the same, and Rihanna is definitely doing the same with Diamonds, the lucky thing is that Rihanna has unique voice

  22. Lana Del Slay December 30, 2012

    If Rihanna changed her demos like B does, David would be wrong but that b**** copies her demos down to a T so the song is Sias.

    Exactly the same as the original.

  23. BeyWhoUWanna December 30, 2012

    It’s so easy to find Rihanna demos because she doesn’t write any of her songs, how many b demos are out there? NONE! Because she writes from scratch so records from scratch, she doesn’t need other song writers.

    • fifty shades of gay December 30, 2012

      B**** dont lie to yo-self. You probably think that Barack & Michelle Obama are your parents, Rihanna is your sister and Beyonce is your aunt.
      Sit yo ass down!

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      Thats a lie!!!!!!!!! If thats the case how come Beyonce always in the studio with writers, and names of other writers appears on all of her songs instead of her name alone????????

  24. BionicLotus December 30, 2012

    Some write, some sing, some do both, Rihanna does neither.

    • fifty shades of gay December 30, 2012

      LMAO!!! There goes my dinner flying outta my mouth and on the keyboard.

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      I love Christina A…….BUT, truth is she herself also CO-WRITES her songs. As for as your comment, we all in titles to our OPINIONS!!!!

  25. Lov Queen B December 30, 2012

    Beyonce is a great artiest,comparing her with rihanna won’t change that beyonce is a better artiest and u know it thats why u bring her up all the time.just wait till 2013 u will be ASHAMED

    • fifty shades of gay December 30, 2012

      Your queen! my mum and sister are my queen. Damn! Drake , Sam and Frank Ocean are my queens than Beyonce

    • QueenOfTheNavy December 30, 2012

      Did you say Drake? Drake likes to receive and not give so he wouldn’t have been of any use to Rihanna. She wants a real man, not a b**** made b**** like Aubriana.

  26. CSquaddie December 30, 2012

    Shade on such a winter’s day.

  27. Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) December 30, 2012

    Too bad Sia couldn’t score a hit with “radioactive” and her new single sang by the beyince chick is so bad it has to be tested on radio stations.

    • wrinkle flop ora December 30, 2012

      You heard about beyonce having to send her songs to 40 pop stations to be tested?

      • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) December 30, 2012

        Yup, what a flop.

  28. Fierce P**** December 30, 2012

    I like how this thread quickly became a bey post. Lol

    “With success comes a lot of negativity.”- Beyonce

  29. Sierra December 30, 2012

    Hmmm well the artist is definitly getting paid for performing the song but the writers and producers are getting paid as well don’t be fooled people. If it wasn’t for sia writing the song ( give credit were its do) there would be no diamonds. ^_^

    • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) December 30, 2012

      If it weren’t for Rihanna accepting the rack it would not be a worldwide smash hit, it would be given to some flop like Rita ora and flop everywhere

  30. Fierce P**** December 30, 2012

    Benron: and Stans like you is exactly why I can never like Rihanna. Just accept it. If it weren’t for Sia, Rihanna wouldn’t have a song to sing. And ironically she has been able to perform this song live better than her previous number 1’s. Give credit where it’s due. Sia will certainly being seeing most of those coins every time the song spins seeing as how she thought of it first. Deal.

    • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) December 30, 2012

      “Without Sia, Rihanna would have no song to sing”

      That’s Sia’s job, write songs. If it she wouldn’t write it maybe “Stay” would be the lead single, or “what now” or “numb”. She is not that important.

      And No one said Sia didn’t write it, it jsut clearly would nto of been a hit without Rihanna.

      • ARTPOPPINIT December 30, 2012

        But Rihanna didn’t write those singles either. Face it, if it was left to Rihanna to write her own songs she’d be forced to retire because there would be none.

    • wrinkle flop ora December 30, 2012

      So rihanna makes her money from her deals outside of music. She gets hollywood money, personal appearance money, fashion money, endorsments etc.

      • Natasha December 30, 2012

        I hope you realize that you’re talking about the majority of the people in the industry, including Rita Ora. Especially, Rita Ora getting her money from personal appearance. Rita can’t live just of her music yet because its barely making her $$$$$$ yet !!!

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      @Benron, the same goes for alot of Rhinna’s fans who actually like Beyonce and supports her.

      • Natasha December 30, 2012

        I meant, @ FIERCE P****.

  31. TaylorWins December 30, 2012

    I was about to diss tgj for this post but then i saw the comments and understand why they did this. Rihanna fans are deluded to think she’d be something without her writers. She needs them more than any other performer because if you were to take away every number one single she has that she wrote herself she would literally have none, like literally.

    • wrinkle flop ora December 30, 2012

      so would whitney be s*** without her writers and every movie star would be s*** with out their writers. You think Leonardo WROTE DJANGO?

    • Natasha December 30, 2012

      I like Taylor Swift, so please don’t have me go there. MOST, artists, musicians need each other to make it in the music industry. It’s not just Rihanna, sweet heart.

  32. mobwife December 30, 2012

    1st of all @Sam/TGJ Staff, stop acting like it wasn’t Rihanna’s vocals placed to those lyrics written by whomever – coupled with the fact we all knew she was singing about Chris Brown – that didn’t propel that damn song to number 1 Worldwide! So sop it! 2nd, I love me some crazy Kanye West. Was Kim K there?

    That is all haters…..

  33. mc the place to be! December 30, 2012

    Sam I hope the next time someone cover Beyonce song I hope you put the dream single ladies or Ryan redder halo or hell BC JEAN’S if I were a boy you know the song Beyonce try to put her name on but BC Jean put her in her place yeah changing a letter or a word in a song doesn’t make you a songwriter and changing the way you sing a word in a song doesn’t make you a songwriter either it makes you a damn Singer that wants everyone’s money!

  34. Touché December 30, 2012

    Let’s be real Sam. Do you honest think the song would have been as popular if Sia had kept it for herself?

    • Touché December 30, 2012


  35. Does she really want this? December 30, 2012

    Rihannas getting more famous and Sia gets another pay check. Who’s mad and why? Keep up with that “F*** Sia” mess. Sia somewhere rolling in her money and thanking Rihanna for singing her words and making her even richer whilst she could give less than a nickel worth of fux about you all.

  36. Hilly December 30, 2012

    Wow, now the shade is in the title!
