  4. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 28, 2013

    RIHANNA is So influential, The most influential Artist out there now, Look at the new crop of new T*** Artists:

    Selena Gomez.
    Miley Cyrus.
    Willow Smith.

    Lots of ICONS and LEGENDS Collaborated with her and Loved her. “too many to mention” .

    Also a Lot of Older artists Trying to “catch Up” with her, But they will still be Unnamed. 😉

    Rihanna Is Simply An ICON on her Way To be a Legend, Following in the Steps of MADONNA, in a more contemporary Improved Way.

    She will get criticized, She will get hated on, but Who doesn’t get that ? Especially when you are so successful and AT THE TOP of your Game, Even labelled ” the #1 Chick in The Game” by Almost Everyone.

    So Proud Of Rihanna.

    About The Video:

    I don’t see Any Rihanna Elements in there, They are kinda Wack!

    But Cute. (^^’)

      The delusion is so genuine.

      • beyawnce July 28, 2013

        I agree with pop royalty , All the girls she has mentioned are influenced by rihanna , music and fashion wise.

      • cake like lady gaga July 28, 2013

        @Natal IKR??? I cannot, the delusion is too much

    • Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) July 28, 2013

      “The most influential artist” so inaccurate.

    • bluepurple77 August 2, 2013

      they are millionaires and have been out since 2009 tgj have only seen them now its long comparing them to anyone tgj need sto pdo research on them instead of acting like they are a new girl group

  5. yo July 28, 2013

    ehh… what?

  6. SummertimeSadness July 28, 2013

    Rihanna isn’t influential but her song writers are.

  7. Emeral July 28, 2013

    Bless them but this was not business.

    The most influential artist (for others) of this generation is Beyoncé *googles list of artist influenced by Beyoncé Knowles*. Then Rihanna. I am so proud of both of them being black.

    • bluepurple77 August 2, 2013

      they work extremely hard and are the biggest girl group in asia and have had world tours they have been out since 2009 been together at least 5 years before they came out if that grape juice was to do real research and show them to people properly people wouldn’t judge them so fast

  8. _Blckfriebnd July 28, 2013

    uhmm excuse me grape juice I don’t usually hate but you just embarrassed with your self with this “Rihanna influence” headline. these girls have been around for YEARS and this isn’t the only reggae-inspired track they’ve done. Not only that but this isn’t theyre usual style Rihanna is a talentless piece of s*** please don’t dare compare her to talent.

    read a book .. well in fact use google and stop embarrassing yourselves with this b******* …

    • FAF July 28, 2013

      Agreed. They’ve been in the game since ’09 as a group and they each did solo work (acting, etc) YEARS before that

    • bluepurple77 August 2, 2013

      thank u this is what im sayin they debuted in 2009 and have consecutive number ones like have u seen how major they are the concerts the tours the world tours the reality shows the fashion the lot tgj are acting like they have just stepped into the industry

  9. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) July 28, 2013

    I like 2ne1. I first heard of them when CL did a cover for did it on em. And rihanna is not influential at all, at least IMHO.

  10. Shauwndapooh July 28, 2013

    rihanna and her impact

    • bluepurple77 August 2, 2013

      do ur research on this group before u listen to this site

  11. Micks July 28, 2013

    Rihanna is influential but for image. Not for music, performing or artistry (which is actually her job). But yes she is influential image wise.

    • NAVY BASE July 28, 2013

      marilyn moroe is influential for what, oh ok :)…

      • FAF July 28, 2013

        No lies. And Marilyn is influential as an actress and personality, similar to Kim K but she was very inspirational and a model who embraced her curves and was a hollywood starlet

      • XXX July 28, 2013

        @Navy Base Marilyn Monroe was not a performer. And once Rihannas image starts dating, so will she. @Micks and FAF I agree.

  12. cake like lady gaga July 28, 2013

    I am NOT here for the navi claiming Miley!! Miley didn’t copy Riherpes in any form or shape. Everyone can see that Miley got her new look from Ke$ha, so the Animals should be claiming Miley, NOT the nazi

  13. Yeah I Said It July 28, 2013

    Many of things Rihanna does has been done.
    Even style the likes or Teyana Taylor and FeFe Dobson were there before her. She is not as original as people think. She hopped on the bandwagon. Its just something I have observed.

  14. LittleScheisse July 28, 2013


  15. Beyawnce July 28, 2013

    That rihanna impact

    • Beyawnce July 28, 2013

      I didnt say this , Sam can you do something about other people commenting from another account?

  16. Davis July 28, 2013

    Did these girls even say they were influenced by her because I know they’ve been around doing this for quite a while. And I don’t really see much Rihanna.

  17. Barb B**** July 28, 2013

    Beyonce is much more influential than RiRi imo. People are more influenced by her to sing, dance, perform, work hard or whatever. The most influential thing Ri has done is dye her hair or cut it. Still love some Ri though.

    • NAVY BASE July 28, 2013

      “imo” well that’s your opinion the world says otherwise 🙂

      • XXX July 28, 2013

        Idk what world you live in because in the real one more people cite Beyonce as an influence than Rihanna.

      • Jessi July 28, 2013

        Actually no, the world doesn’t….no shade to Rihanna tho

  18. NAVY BASE July 28, 2013

    The Legend in the making influencing others as usual!

  19. Gilberto July 28, 2013

    TGP talking b*******. I listen to 2NE1 since 2009 and I never heard they mention R****** as their idol. 2NE1 is the female version of Big Bang which debuted in 2006. They have that style since their debut while Big Forehead has had multiple personalities for every new era. On other hand, they mention the King in one of their biggest hit. That’s real impact.

    • bluepurple77 August 2, 2013


  20. FAF July 28, 2013

    Rihanna inspired? This is the same choreo from the video are you insinuating Music of the Sun era? Bc Rihanna doesn’t dance as much as 2ne1. Sry.

    If y’all dont know 2ne1 from their GLOBAL adidas Jeremy scott campaign w/ the QUEEN OF RAP, google them

    they are like Korea’s female 1Direction. Platinum ERR’thang

  21. XXX July 28, 2013

    Theyve had this style since the beginning so if anything Rihanna is influenced by them.
    P.S some lyrics from one of their biggest hits ‘Go away’;

    Fiance? Beyonce! Im walkin’ out of Destiny…’

  22. Little Monster July 28, 2013

    These girls were not inspired by Rihanna the reach. Only teeny boppers use that image because its ‘in’ now when her stylist clearly just runs through fashion blogs to get inspiration for her style.

  23. paul July 30, 2013

    I am actually wondering what 2NE1 is doing on this site. Yes. 2NE1 is a great group. The song was kinda weak I’d say. But the group is very popular in Korea as well as in South-East Asia. They got some kind of swag that, for some reason, I couldn’t feel from watching this vid.

    And how the hell are they related to Rihanna? ;?
