Rihanna’s ‘Battleship’ Among Top Razzie-Nominated Films Of the Year

Published: Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 by Rashad

It may not take much for Barbadian beauty Rihanna to sail a single to the top of Billboard charts, but as spring 2012 proved, she isn’t the best captain on the movie-front.

Indeed, after quickly sinking at the box office, Ri’s ‘Battleship’ didn’t exactly make a splash with critics either – now landing she and crew aboard the 2013 Golden Raspberry Awards (Razzies) list.

With a whopping 7 nominations (just behind hit film ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn II‘s eleven nods), including ‘Worst Picture’ and a ‘Worst Supporting Actress’ nod for her own showing, it looks like somebody at the Razzie academy – much like other academies – was not pleased with Ri’s performance.

She’s in good company, however.  As, much like her fiercest chart competitions, she will go head to head with movies featuring the likes of music starlets Ciara, Jennifer Lopez, and more:

For those who are unfamiliar, the Razzies, unlike the Oscars, are an annual salute to the top flops worst films of the year.  For over 30 years, its academy has awarded the worst of the worst films.  Interestingly, some people who have been nominated for and/or won Razzies have won ‘Screen Actor’s Guild’ or Academy Awards for the same performances.

Queen of Pop Madonna also stands as Queen of the Razzies as her big screen showings have earned her a whopping 5 awards (and countless nominations) since her debut in ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’.

    saw this on gossipjacker:

    Musician Rita Ora — recently split from Rob Kardashian, who accused her on Twitter of “messing with more than 20 men” — is now getting cozy withEvan Ross, son of Diana Ross, says a source. The duo were spotted at Jonny Lennon’s Funday party at Goldbar in SoHo on Sunday. “They were so into each other. They took a lingering, passionate kiss,” says a witness. Ross is one of the men whom Ora was rumored to have been seeing while dating Kardashian. Their reps did not respond for comment.

        You can “drag” all you want. I dont take e-threats or e-dragging seriously.
        While you try to drag, you will also have several seats. Gaga has sold over 25 million albums worldwide with 3 albums. Rihanna has sold 28 million albums with 7 LP’s released. Gaga would never!
        Lana has sold 3 million albums ww for “Born to Die” with NO HITS in her domestic market in addition to being the most googled woman of 2012. That is what Rihgoat will sell by the end of the year with all her potential hits.

      Beyoncé has turned tossing the salad after it’s been made and claiming credit for making it into an art form. It’s up there with her inability to keep her legs closed and make it through a routine without whipping her hair like she’s possessed by the holy ghost, and then thrusting her v***** into the nearest camera when she’s on stage.

      • danny b January 10, 2013

    Rihanna should have to pay the studio back for this god awful movie’s failure. I think it’s abundantly clear that had a REAL actress been cast in her role, it wouldn’t have flopped so hard. She was the poison in the picture.


      It was a movie based on a f***** BOARD GAME! No matter WHO was in it it was gonna flop!

      • joker January 9, 2013

  29. Lax January 9, 2013

    With the Amazonian robot empress from the kingdom of lost wigs having a new album out, it of course it features some scammed credits. Trailing behind a b**** like Daniel Julez’s pull away train on a rope. A Beyoncé album doesn’t get mastered without a songwriting scam or two…or 4.

    • Lax January 9, 2013

      Beyoncé’s credibility as a songwriter was thrown into question way back with Destiny’s Child’s Survivor. An album which had 17 of its 18 songs citing Beyoncé as a songwriter, and the full 18 listing Beyoncé as a producer or a co-producer. It’s not impossible for a female artist to write and co-produce all of her own material. There are many who do it and do it brilliantly. Tori Amos, Hikaru Utada, Ayumi Hamasaki, Björk, Lady Gaga and Kumi Koda to name a few. But when stories begin to surface more than once that perhaps the album liner notes are not an accurate representation of the input that an artist had, then you do have to wonder. And the question as to whether Beyoncé writes and produces all of which she and her album liners say she has, has continued to buzz around Beyoncé like a bumble bee trying to make home in a her weave.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        The order of which a songwriters name appears within the listed credits of a song has long been a debate. Such seemingly small trivial matters are one of the things which had John and Paul fall out during their time in The Beatles. It’s somewhat of “a thing” that the list of songwriters on a song are ordered from who contributed the most to the least. However, there’s nothing to prove this; and there are more arguments against this than there are those for it. Producers are also often credited as the writer of a song, even when they’ve contributed nothing lyrically to the song at all. Baring this in mind, it is rather telling that in many of 4’s song credits, Beyoncé’s is listed first as a songwriter and also as a producer on songs which we know existed long before she had gotten them.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Beyoncé obviously seems to think that singing on a song means that you produced it. And being the person singing the song, that your name should be listed first as the songwriter of it. It doesn’t work like this. Unless of course you have Beyoncé’s money and power. After all… Money talks so that the album credits do. And if Beyoncé turns around to you and says “I like your song. But I won’t record it unless I can be credited as a songwriter” to claim part of the royalties, are you really going to turn her down, knowing how big she’ll make your record?

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Beyoncé has continued to make out that she writes every one of her songs. Openly declaring that she writes songs from scratch, comes up with everything and pours her heart and bottles of lacefront glue into these songs. She even has Grammy’s (which she should be giving back) to back this up. Grammy’s people!! We’re not buying it though. So let’s run through B’s latest release and poke at all of the songs which stink of a scam.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        1 + 1 = She a lying b****
        Terius “The Dream” Nash had written a song called “Nothing but love” and had recorded it himself a good while back. The song then surfaces as “1 + 1” under the wig of Beyoncé. A song which probably had Prince throw up in his own mouth at a b**** completely jacking his style. Naturally, Beyoncé manages to snag a song writing credit and first billing as the song’s producer. After all, screaming ♪ Make love to meeeeeeeeeeeeeee ♪ non-stop towards the end of the song is a songwriting contribution purely because it wasn’t a feature of the original recording.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Best thing I never had was a songwriting credit until I scammed my way into one
        Founding member of the songwriting collective The Clutch, Patrick “J. Que” Smith had mentioned that “Best thing I never had” was already written before Beyoncé or Babyface had come into the picture. And that once they had heard the song, they both had “a couple of things [they] wanted to tweak”. This isn’t concrete confirmation Beyoncé had no writing input into this song. But it at least brings to light that Beyoncé’s so called tweaking could be how she warrants being listed as a songwriter alongside those who actually wrote portions of a song.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Legally, if an artist contributes so much as a word to a song, they’re able to be listed as a songwriter and share the copyrights of it. But ethically, is this right?

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Run the world (Girls who lie)
        Beyoncé’s female depowerment anthem “Run the world (Girls)” doesn’t so much sample Major Lazer’s “Pon de floor” as it does pretty much use the entire instrumental from it. There are a couple of notable tweaks to the music here and there, but it is pretty much the instrumental of the Major Lazer and Vybz Kartel assisted club banger.

      • Touché January 9, 2013

        Lax, please calm the hell down!

    • Lax January 9, 2013

      The song writing credits cite the original songwriters of “Pon de floor”, which it damn well should. No shady dealings here. But the shadiness starts when you look at the production credits. “Pon de floor” was produced by Major Lazer which is the collective of Dave “Switch” Taylor and Wesley “Diplo” Pentz. Yet, only Switch is listed as a producer for the song. Surely Diplo should have been credited too, or did we miss something? The Dream, Shea Taylor and Beyoncé are all listed within the capacities of being producers. Smells like everybody wanted to get all up in the kitchen for the sake of snagging some credits. There is no way to disprove this of course. But it smells fishy. Rather fitting that Beyoncé has her legs spread wide open on the page of the inlay which lists the credits for this song.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        I was here. You wasn’t. So you ain’t getting credited for s***.
        The only song on 4 on which Beyoncé did not manage to scam a songwriting credit for was “I was here”. And this is no doubt because the song was written by the songwriting force of one that is Diane Warren. There was no way in hell that Beyoncé was going to be able to scam a songwriting credit from this woman. She probably tried her luck. But Diane Warren is bullet proof. If she wrote a song, she wrote it. And no amount of trying to change a word here or there, or mailing her unsolicited cheques is going to get your name alongside hers. Unless you sat your a*** down in a studio and put pen to paper, fingers to laptop keys with her – your name is not appearing alongside Diane Warren’s. PERIOD!

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        HMMMM,,,Diane Warren
        Beyoncé not being listed as a writer on Diane Warren’s song is rather telling. As it may speak volumes for the fact that Diane Warren doesn’t need Beyoncé’s named tied to her songs to be any bigger or any more in-demand than she already is. In fact, in this case it’s more than likely the opposite. You know you’ve hit a substantial level in your career when you’re singing a song which has been written for you by Diane Warren.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        All of the other songwriters and producers on 4 may have felt that they needed to relinquish control over their rights on a song to Beyoncé, because they know how big it will be for their careers to say they got on an album of hers. They know that Beyoncé will make their work a hit, which will get their name known and generate more work for them. Letting the Amazonian empress scam credit for their work is a small price they pay. Heather Bright brought this to light in her defense of Britney Spears, after the lethargic pop star came under fire for writing absolutely nothing on her 8th studio album Femme fatale.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Lay up under my lies
        There’s this dude who writes songs. You may have heard of him. His name is Sean Garrett. Just to give you some background info on this guy: He is the man behind the hits such as Beyoncé’s “Check on it”, Destiny’s Child’s “Lose my breath” and also the (s)hits Chris Brown’s “Wall to wall”, Nicole Scherzinger’s “Whatever you like” and other songs such as Britney’s “Toy soldier” and that song for Blackout we STILL be hoping will leak in finalized form: “Kiss you all over”. He’s also that Donkey Kong looking man in Nicki Minaj’s “Massive attack” video. Oh yeah. He wrote that too. That’s him singing on the chorus.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Sean Garrett had released an album 3 years ago, which only myself and about 7 other people know exists. And the song “Lay up under me” featured on it. Sean Garrett wrote the song with Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen (collectively known to all of us as Stargate) who also produced the song. Now, we could give Beyoncé the benefit of the doubt and claim her version of “Lay up under me” is a different song. Only, it isn’t. The song features a different second verse, but I’ll leave it up to you to deduce whether Beyoncé wrote it herself or not and if she deserved to have her name listed first in the credits like she wrote this song from top to bottom.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Despite Sean Garrett being involved with Destiny’s Child’s last studio album, having a heavy hand in Beyoncé’s solo album B’Day (you can blame him for the mess that is “Ring the alarm” and the brilliance of “Green light”, “Get me bodied” and “Upgrade U”) and I am…Sasha Fierce (you can blame that n***a for “Diva” and “Video phone” too) Sean Garrett contributes no songs to 4 other than the one Beyoncé stole a credit for. Perhaps he got tired of b**** taking credit for his s***. Main 4 contributor Shea Taylor also managed to score himself a songwriting credit for this song too. And from the looks of the album credits, he may have been co-scamming with Beyoncé – I’ll give you the Lion’s share of production for my album, under the basis I am listed as a songwriter and producer on every one of the songs you work on. Not so far fetched. Not in the slightest.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Beyoncé’s name has been smeared through some serious dirt because of her shady dealings concerning songwriting. I thought it may stop after her father was kicked to the curb, along with her own ability to write a song. But I guess not. I dig Beyoncé. I am a fan of her music and live performances. But I’m not a fan of her being a complete sham with the songwriting. Even artists for whom song writing is their main craft are not trying to claw their way into getting a song writing credit on their material. There are several songs on Keri Hilson’s No boys allowed on which she is not listed as a song writer at all. Keri was more than happy to let fellow songwriters such as Ester Dean pen songs for her. This just goes to show the difference in regards to songwriting integrity between honest folk like Keri Hilson and Beyoncé.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        Daddy Mathew Knowles seems to have instilled this notion in Beyoncé that nobody will take you seriously or buy into you unless your name is credited on every song (a point he pinned Rob Fusari down with after the producer caught wind of Beyoncé taking full credit for his work on “Bootylicious”).

        Mathew never once seemed to have made a point of the fact that dishonesty and taking credit for somebody else’s work is not only ethically wrong, but it’s stealing. Nasty traits which will taint an artist if their acts of unethical practices come to light – which they have many times in Beyoncé’s case. Every album Beyoncé has put out has been plagued with songwriting scandals. Yet she continues to get away with it and come out unscathed. As though nothing happened. Her reputation still very much intact. Power is clearly a wonderful thing.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        I’ve always made a note of how Brandy rarely writes any of her songs anymore. But is her artistry and music any less amazing because of it? Hell no. Afrodisiac trumps on each and every one of Beyoncé’s solo albums which she claimed to have written 98% of, and yet Brandy only wrote one song on it. Having your name tied to the writing of every song does not automatically make you a better artist. It’s nice to know an artist you love and idolize can write their own songs. But it’s the quality of the songs which draws you. Not whether they wrote it or not. Nobody would dare say Diana Ross, Whitney Houston or Namie Amuro are any less of an artist because they do not write every single one of their songs.

        Whitney, Diana Ross, Namie Amuro,,,,

        Beyoncé is not only looking like a thieving b****, but she is discrediting the craft of those who take song writing seriously by making out she is one of them, when she is not. I’m not saying Beyoncé has never written a song in her life. There are many juvenile songs within the B and DC discography which I’m willing to believe she wrote. But when every album she releases has a slew of songwriting scandals follow it, you find it difficult to believe where Beyoncé’s pen game starts and where the lies end.

      • Lax January 9, 2013

        It would be a nice turn if Beyoncé stopped. But when she’s managed to get away with it for so long – why on the kingdom of lost wigs would she stop now?

        @TinaMinaj Yeah you got that right, and keep Me in yo prayers, now if we can get JAYZ off his ass and do this same thing right here for RIHANNA,,,

      • Lax January 10, 2013

        @TinaMinaj,,,,All Rihanna & Navy Need is for Jayz
        Just months after giving birth, Beyonce will be performing at Atlantic City, New Jersey’s newest resort, REVEL. The singer revealed on her official website that she will be performing for three consecutive days on Memorial Weekend (May 25 – 27) for the resort’s official premiere.

        Word on the street is that Beyonce may be planning to take on an international tour as well. According to the NY Post, her husband Jay-Z has been pitching the $150 million idea to LiveNation:

      • Lax January 10, 2013

        @TinaMinaj,,,Hey Troll Iknow Yo ass have heard to the
        Fairness Doctrine, Right. Sort of like Wayne does over their
        where Yo ass Resides.

      • Lax January 10, 2013

        Sources tell us Jay has approached Live Nation about a $150million deal for Beyoncé to tour following the birth of their child in January. Beyoncé has a joint management deal with Jay’s Roc Nation and Live Nation. A source told us, “Just weeks after the birth of Blue Ivy, Jay met with Live Nation to discuss a tour for Beyoncé. He wanted a deal worth about $150million, but they countered with a lower offer.” Beyoncé had earlier hinted that she may tour again this year. Reps for Jay-Z and Beyoncé didn’t get back to us. Live Nation reps declined to comment.

      • Lax January 10, 2013

        @TinaMinaj,,,And another thing I am waiting to see
        who’s going to be the nest artist to book the 02 Arena full
        ten times, Perhaps Jayz has already started Sucking on them to Help Ensure that Beyonce Gets ten Dates Book
        What do you think.
        And since You make it clear that you don’t stand for anybody with Yo Flaky Jakie ass It would not be fair for me to say that Nicki wasn’t Book that many time while she was on tour are any of the other Black Artist So to say.

  30. hew iz u h**? January 9, 2013

    If this was Beyonce nominated you wouldn’t of even posted this. You look for any reason to hate on Rih just because she outdoes your faves. Accept that she’s the reigning pop queen and stop diminshing her achievements.

  31. RICHANDBLACK11 January 9, 2013

    UMMMMM well I guess congrats …….Lets be real how is this even possible when the girl had a less than cameo of 5min

    • TinaMinaj January 10, 2013

      She was used heavily as a tool for promotion. She was on posters of the movie everywhere and was sitting at the table at all the conferences during promo for the movie…

  32. Fierce P**** January 9, 2013

    Lmao #oop

    It’s all good tho, Rih. At least u tried……..

  33. Fierce P**** January 9, 2013

    Beyonce can’t act blah blah blah. Well she’s a SINGER. Duh.

    I can’t at Rihanna sucking at singing, dancing, and acting. Poor navy. They gonna thumbs this down and have a meltdown. Y’all really act cocky but ya fave ain’t S*** without her sales and money. Just admit it and stop hating on bey cuz its not gonna make ur fave any more talented one way or another. Kii

    LOL OH @SAM you very well could have used Tyler Perry’s face as much as they dogged his films. GOOD DEEDS was an excellent film by the way. I guess anytime you have wealthy blacks who actually run a multi-million dollar corporation and find the heart and courage to live life and find love and happiness…..well that’s a bit much for Hollyweird to handle!

    **Oh well there is always Shorty LO’s BABY MAMA series to look forward to right Hollyweird? 🙁

  35. Lax January 9, 2013

    @MOB You are so Right on Point, and that is the very
    Reason that It should serve as a Reminder that when
    many of these Artist get so big they all need to be very
    careful with their actions and who they are trying to give
    a hard time.

  36. Touché January 9, 2013

    @Lax, Are you ok? You seem especially crazy today.

    • Lax January 10, 2013

      @TOUCHE I am as Passionate about Rihanna as always, and unless yo ass have been living under a rock then you would knoiw that I could give a shyt about what yo ass thinks and since I kniw that the likes of you never says jack shyt about the haters and yo self bashing Rihanna 24/7 why in the F** do you care about a BLOGGER SCREEN NAME “LAX”


  37. irene46 January 9, 2013

    suddenly there’s been a lot of tgj articles ripping and shading rihanna. is it just me, or does anyone else think this might be bullying pay back because she hooked back up with chris brown?

    • TinaMinaj January 10, 2013

      Please take your meds….

    • Lax January 10, 2013

      @IRENE Good Point , Well taken that
      could be part of it and the other is they
      do not like it because Rihanna’s ass is
      on that Forbes list for the last three years
      and has maintained Her over 75 million
      Net Worth,,,,,So if Rih had 72 Million three
      Years Ago and added 29Million+53 Million+
      53Million!!!!And this isn’t even cracking the ice
      to what Beyonce has made But still Yet they
      tries to Bash Rihanna’s Wheels off with each and every
      thing she does,,,

    • boopboop January 10, 2013

      or sam could be getting paid by the camp of a certain blond bewigged p-popper to post negative articles about rih while overpraising said p-popper and a certain albanian kim k wannabe

  38. Jer January 10, 2013

    Ummmm She has what 8 lines in the movie?Yes its Rihanna’s film

    • danny b January 10, 2013

      thats what the Navy was saying when it released…

  39. quetta January 10, 2013

    Rofl! I won’t even say congrats.

  40. Blue January 10, 2013

    I will say the same thing i said when halle got her nomination and win

    you can never truly be great if you have never been at the bottom. So go get it riri. And a nomination usually doesnt mean u a bad actor just that u were in a bad movie. Fact that they recognised her cntribition to the film with her 5min makes me smile

  41. mc the place to be! January 10, 2013

    Diane Warren let mariah be credit as a songwriter on after tonight can’t take that away an there for me because mariah actually HELPED writing them in the studio thinking about it mariah is the only person I can think of that Diane shared songwriting credit with #legend and by the way battleship was okay it bombed in the us but everywhere else it did good atleast Rihanna first movie didn’t have anything to do with music

  42. TinaMinaj January 10, 2013

    The navy shouldn’t pretend they weren’t on all fronts throwing this movie in everyone’s faces and how it was going to be a huge blockbuster. Now that it flopped you want to talk about how small her role was? When other people said that before you disagreed and guess what, the studio listened to the navy and put Rihanna at the front of its marketing scheme. Well we all know what the results were….

    That aside, personally i think Rihanna has the potential to be a great actress. I think it shows in some of her videos and performances even though her voice is not great. You see the emotion in her face and movements. I’ll give her props for that. Some great singers out there can’t emote as well as she can…

    • Lax January 10, 2013

      @TinaMinaj,,,,,Rihanna & Navy,,,Know That,,
      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 babv, 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.”

      Rih Jut Keep this in Mind, no matter what SLEAZY Says,
      Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

  44. Hilly January 10, 2013

    Well the movie was terrible (yes, I wasted my time watching it) and I think there wasn’t any casting for Rihanna’s role, the director just chose her, probably for her popularity. So that’s what you get when you don’t cast real actresses.

  45. SlayDeleAdkins January 10, 2013

    Meanwhile on the slaying side, Adele’s platinum selling single is nominated for a golden globe, a critics choice award and now a bafta!!. She’s even expected to recieve an oscar! Good Luck Queen Adele!

  46. JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

    This horrible movie is making everybody´s top10 worst films of the year. I love movies almost as much as music and I tell you every f****** reviewer I´ve seen on youtube or tv thinks the worst about this. Flop despite huge promotion and massive budget, no plot, laughable at all levels… the acting, everything
    If at least you debut in a film which becomes aflop but you were the main star and it was low budget… you can say you were brave and you´ll try better next time. But when you debut in a small role in a big movie so that nobody can think you ruin the movie and with other reknown actors… and it is still bad and also a flop… there´s no excuse. Filmmakers didn´t want you for a better movie and you didn´t contribute to make it a box office success either. This is all kinds of crap 🙂

    • blue January 10, 2013

      what reknown actor had a huge carrying role in that movie?

      the movie only tanked in the usa else where it did great. and lets not forget that although the movie got bad reviews she got great ones for her part

      • JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

        Are you serious?????

      • SlayDeleAdkins January 10, 2013
