Rihanna Faces Caribbean ‘DanceHall Queen’ Impersonation Claims Following ‘Pour It Up’ Video

Published: Friday 4th Oct 2013 by David

 

With a Platinum plaque to its name, it’s fair to say the US had fallen head over heels with Rihanna‘s ‘Pour It Up‘ well before the release of its music video, now available to enjoy here!

Alas, despite scoring many a thumbs up from many of her fans, the last few days have seen the chart topper labelled a ‘copy cat’, after some critics accused her of unfairly ‘pulling’ from Caribbean DanceHall queens to craft a video her fans have hailed ‘original’.

Indeed, much to the dismay of her fans, she has been accused of stealing ideas from Carlene, Patra and the widely known Lady Saw, Chaka Demus & Pliers to create the style employed in the music video.

Now, peep tweets and a YouTube launched by critics explaining why they believe the star has stolen from her own culture without crediting it, below…

    Just the shear fact that a Beyonce Stan reported on this…..I shouldn’t, couldn’t and won’t.

    • Mya October 4, 2013

      BUT does that change the accusation?

    • BeyWhouWanna October 4, 2013

      What does this have to do with Beyonce? The tweets and the video say all that needs to be said. Rihanna is a thief.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) October 4, 2013

        Lmao not when you Stan for the Queen of all thieves, have several.

      • mekaela October 4, 2013

        Sam dont you have anything better to do than bully rihanna every day and ps every island woman knows how to f****** whine and pop their p**** so what the hell did she steal stupid ignant fools go get a life there is more important stuff to report about than this foolishness

    • UnthinkableAlicia October 4, 2013

      Beyonce has got nothing to do with this. Is it just a coincidence that all these people from around the world are saying the same thing?

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) October 4, 2013

        Girl bye, I’ve brought countless receipts of Beyonce’s thieving activities and you’ve always defended her. Have several.

      • Mya October 4, 2013

        But Lovebird, you stan for a thief too. #Truth #Fact #Deal

    • FlawlessBeyonce October 4, 2013

      And what’s that got to do with the price of weed in Compton? Rihanna is a Patra wannabe and has now been shamed up by her own fans.

      • Stop the drama Start the music October 4, 2013

        Rihanna steals stuff too and has been hit with allegations and lawsuits from lots. It’s a coincidence how receipts have always been shown to lovebird and he never replies. Ain’t that funny….

      • MuiMui October 5, 2013

        Beyonce sure don’t have nothing to do with this. This is about the Caribbean Queen, and the Bey Hive ALWAYS make it her business ,by being in a Rihanna thread spreading their hate, lies and bull.

      • MuiMui October 5, 2013

        Rihanna has never denied where shes from and shes always shouting out her Home Land,and if there are hurt feeling because she works her ass on a throne , wears a blonde wig, and people ,including the Queens from the Island are b*** hurt, get the F** over it because all of you like Rihanna have got the same amount of time in a day.
        When Others have Borrowed from the Caribbean sound there wasn’t any hurt feelings.

        Nobody from the Caribbeans was Talking Shyt,when Beyonce did Baby Boy,same name as Ciara song,with Sean Paul,so all of you scabs can Quietly stfu.

      • MuiMui October 5, 2013

        Bey Hive and Rihanna haters love trying to run her name
        into the ground,and no matter how they talk crazy, about her she still prevails.
        She made the same amount of paper last year ,that Beyonce made this year.
        Aand she and Jayz both made the same amount this year so your hate for her is not doing nothing to her power moves and you can’t dim the light on her Future no more then You Bytches can do ,While trying to get Beyonce to drop some new sounds and Stop letting the Net light up like all over when you type in Beyonce stealing again.

        Many of you weak bytches is always saying its not about Beyonce, She can drop New Music when she get Ready.
        Rihanna will never be on Beyonce Leve,well let me tell you about Beyonce level, No one, and I mean not even Baby Blue want the Rap Sheet Beyonce has for kicking people to the curve, Cut Throat,Stealing Record to be connected with them in any way form or fashion.

        And the reason you are pushing this is You want Rihanna to become the Steal your way to the top Queen.
        Beyonce is the Queen of “Stealing” and Rihanna will never achieve that Title or be able to catch Beyonce for that Queen of Stealing and Copy cat Crown even if she lives to be 120 years old,Never.

      • MuiMui October 5, 2013

        RIHANNA HATERS ARE ALWAYS COMING UP WITH EVERY NEGATIVE THINGS SAID ABOUT HER,
        And that Caribbean who is Speaking on the half of the Real Artist from the Caribbean whom I love and Respect, That Countrified Heffa need to get some place and sit her booty down.
        Rihanna loves and is Inspired by her Caribbean Roots,the People and She Respects Her Rich Caribbean Roots..

      • MuiMui October 5, 2013

        RIHANNA Performed on stage with the MARLEYS, AND all you Loose booty Bytches Felt RIHANNA DID BAD, AND THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD BEYONCE DO IT BECAUSE SHE DOES EVERYTHING ,IN YOUR , RUG RAT HEADS BETTER THEN RIHANNA.,BECAUSE OF THE BLATANTANT, HATE OVER RIHANNA SUCCESSFUL EXCITING CAREER.

        RIHANNA LOVES THE VETERANS,AND ALL THE CARIBBEAN ARTIST,DEARLY.
        YOU BYTCHES WILLTAKE A LIE AND TRY AS ALWAYS TO BURY HER IN THE GROUND WITH IT, BUT YOUR B/.S ISN’T GOING TO WORK AGAINST THIS CARIBBEAN QUEEN.

        KEEP LIFTING RIHANNA UP AND SHOUTING HER OUT , SHE LOVES EVERY WORD OF IT,AND SO DO MANY
        SIMPLY BECAUSE ITS FUN READING THE DESPERATION IN YOU RUG RATS

    • Anne October 4, 2013

      I’m a huge Beyoncé fan and I’m sick of claims that artists copy. When are people going to learn they everybody gets things from other people. Michael Jackson got dance moves from street dancers and James Brown. It just goes on and on. As long as it’s legal, I say go for it. Do it and do it well. As for Rihanna’s video I think it’s a horrible shame but it’s not the fact that she copied from anyone that bothers me, it’s the way she is glorifying being a stripper in the song and video that is not my cup of tea and is a bad influence on young kids in my opinion. But the copy claim are bs as far as I’m concerned.

      • LiveLoveLaugh October 4, 2013

        Learn the difference between copying and being inspired. MJ was the definition of ORIGINAL and CREATIVE…He took something and made it his own. Unlike beyonce who has been exposed to copying, stealing and taking credit for other people’s work. She copied, music videos, songs, performances, etc. Rhianna has been exposed to swagger jacking other artists, not as much as beyonce the queen of frauds. Ppl who deny bey copying are delusional. Look at youutbe videos of her swagger jacking and copying being exposed.

  2. NickiBeyNaj October 4, 2013

    Regardless of what people think about the video. I’m glad that this has brought Patra’s name into discussion. Patra is pure f****** fire! Dip & Fallback, Pull up to my bumper & romantic call are still on playlists of mine today all these years later. LOVE PATRA!

      • KissesForKelly October 4, 2013

        Fraudanna strikes again.

      • FAF October 4, 2013

        Yes, God! She & Shabba Ranks brought dancehall to the US in the 90s & I knew Beyonce was gonna be brought up in here 😆

      • NickiBeyNaj October 4, 2013

        YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Now to find me some Batty Riders and go carnival! WHINE UP! hahaha

        Also, as a side note, i’m growing tired of the Rihanna vs. Beyonce comparisons. They are two separate people, artists and individuals. If they weren’t they wouldn’t be who they are. Let them live ffs. Yes I’m a Beyonce stan but I also love Rihanna. ENJOY THE MUSIC PEOPLE!

    • I&I(bare badniss) October 4, 2013

      yessss and she still looks the same today young as ever with those same moves. Saw her perform on TV the other day and was WOWED!!

    • MuiMui October 4, 2013

      Now you American Spiteful Bytches have seen some of the best Our Island has to offer,Perhaps you can stop saying Rihanna don’t know how to dance.
      Because Fact is none of the Island chicks dance like Beyonce does,they Whine and that is what is Our Culture,Dirty hating american Bytches.

      And this Ship will never sail, this Bytche will never leave the Harbor,How in the F** is Rihanna Stealing from her own Culture. I have been around the world three times and Once by Row BOAT, AND YOU BYTCHES WILL TRY ANYTIN ONCE.

      • MuiMui October 4, 2013

        Our Caribbean Artist are Rarely ever Mentioned on Main Stream Media,Ever.
        RIHANNA has a way of Building a Fire under many Asses don’t She.
        Bey Hive the Caribbeans will never Kiss Beyonce Big Block Manly looking Rich ASS,NEVER.

  3. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) October 4, 2013

    Beyonce Stans so concerned with Rihanna nowadays when they should start a petition to get Beyonce to release another snippet.

    • New Life/Queen Monica October 4, 2013

      shut up, everone that doesn’t like rihanna fake ass ain’t a beyonce fan. She is a phony, and any time someone exposes her for being a fraud, she gets mad and b*** hurt. f*** that c*** she can sit in a seat full of nails in the middle of the ocean. bye

      • mekaela October 4, 2013

        How is she a fraud u dummy ri is a island gal and can whine just like patra every island woman can whine their hips so she stole patra hips now smdh

  4. My bish Celine October 4, 2013

    Just as irrelevant as Sinead O’Connor

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      The real Celine Fans could care less hive

  5. im me October 4, 2013

    REEEEEEEEEEEEEACH.

    • Anne October 4, 2013

      I agree. The girl in the video is crazy. Is she really fussing about clothes, hair color, and dance moves? EVERYONE (celebrities and regular people) gets ideas for clothes, hair and dancing from other people. And the ‘bad girl’ image is now unique to Patra? Come on, there are a ton of bad girl images out there. I can’t believe I’m defending Rihanna but this is ridiculous!

  6. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) October 4, 2013

    And more lessors and unknowns trying to use Riri’s name for publicity, NO BASIC ZONE.

    Get YA LIFe… Rihanna is not bothered by jealous ass b******….. Seems to me like this is her culture… So whats the f****** Problem…… B****** you can’t stop Rihanna…. Get ya S*** together……… PS your face isn’t fair. Deal with it!!!!!!

    • OVOBarbie October 4, 2013

      The fact that you commented.

  9. Molly October 4, 2013

    Wassup with irrelevant b****** like these h*** and sinead o who tryna come for the BIG STARS . People stay tryna bring down the b****** on top.

    • HipHopMaryJ October 4, 2013

      And this is why I’m happy they did this post. Your musical knowledge is clearly poor if you didn’t know Rihanna’s ENTIRE Bad Gyal Riri persona comes from Patra.

    • Touché October 4, 2013

      First of all, Sinead didn’t come for a big star. She came for Miley Cyrus. Now, don’t forget that it was Miley who said in the rolling stones magazine that her wrecking ball video was inspired by Sinead, which is why Sinead made a response to her in the first place. The fact that you tried to down play respected artists like Sinead for trash like Miley says a lot about yourself.

      • MOLLY October 4, 2013

        Respected by who when people don’t even know that flop h**?

      • Touché October 4, 2013

        Honey, plenty of people know Sinead. Just because your uncultured self doesn’t know Sinead, doesn’t justify your tired remarks.

  10. Touché October 4, 2013

    Just a mess lol.

  11. NO October 4, 2013

    ONLY HERE CAUSE I SAW “LADY SAW” <she the realll queen of dancehall. Love her song "Life without d***" and " Correction Rod".

    Excuse me, why are the Navy acting like Sam made this story up. YALL DON’T SEE ALL THE TWEETS AND VIDEO AT THE END?

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      BEYWHOUWANNA
      Not all of the Navy, because the Navy for the most part, know
      that You,and blogs can only Strive when they think they can paint a messy picture of Her.
      And everybody and their best friend never did nothing as bad as Rihanna becoming a Super star in their entire life.

  13. TurntUp4Cici October 4, 2013

    Wow, Rihanna has BEEN a copycatter.

  14. jay scorpio October 4, 2013

    YOU ALL ARE STUPID!!!! SO THIS MEANS THAT ALL STRIPPERS ARE COPYING JAMAICANS???!!!

    STOP WITH THE FOOLERY!!!!!

    THEY SHOULD BE GLAD TO BE EVEN MENTIONED IN THE SAME SENTENCE AS RIHANNA….

    • GagitaMaraj October 4, 2013

      If you knew anything about dance hall, you’d know that Rihanna has been paying homage to Patra and Carlene for the last two years.

      • Jay Scorpio October 4, 2013

        JAMAICANS ARE FUKKING FULL OF THEMSELVES…. THESE STYLES BEEN AROUND WHY BEFORE THEIR HOOKER ASSES STARTING SPORTING THEM

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      JAY SCORPIO
      Sure has and many American steals from the
      Caribbean Culture,and tries to hop on the Reggae wagon.
      Look at Snoop Lion who made Music with that Caribbean sound,nobody hopped him about it.
      The Caribbean and all the other Cultures has been around like you say for ,ever.
      Marley is a Legendary Figure from the Caribbean and Rihanna shout Him out all the times,and Hes one of Her Inspirations.
      These Dance Hall Queen Need to drop some New Music asap,and fall back off Rih its not her fault she have her own Throne and want to spread her long legs and flip her ass up in the air on her Own Throne.

      Perhaps these Queens are Bitter because her ass in the air look so good, We see the censure went up ten minutes after the Video dropped.
      See how all the hoop la over S&M ceased Once Britney came on Board.

      See how Kiah’s ,song Neck & Back is still up,and even Brirtney , Womanizer.
      And the Rappers and their shyt get by without a hench, the Rappers are never censured ,they never copy they are all Priest in their private lives,Cough* Cough*
      How do a song calling women Bytches get through and the Women Groups are not trying to make any of the Men in Entertainment Role Models,that Boggles the Mind.

    • PROUD TO BE JAMAICAN October 5, 2013

      YOU B**** ASS JAY SCORPIO GO SUCK A BOIL EGG. DON’T DISS MY CULTURE….BWOY YOU RENK AND STINK A YUH KAKKA. I AM NOT FULL OF MYSELF. JAMAICA IS WHERE REGGAE ORIGINATED FROM. YOU DAMN IDIOT! ‘BOUT JAMAICANS MUST BE GLAD THAT WE ARE MENTIONED IN THE SAME SENTENCE OF RIHANNA…WE HAVE BOB MARLEY ALREADY – LEGEND!!! THROW YOUR WORDS ON THE PERSON THAT POST THE HEADLINE, NOT JAMAICANS.

      Rihanna made 53 Million,last year,Beyonce made the same this year
      We will Cope and you will Deal.

  17. Hayley October 4, 2013

    This is the most pathetic article ever. Looks like this site pays the bills with Rihanna’s name. I hope this article is ridiculed and ignored. Everyday we get some article based on some random tweet and comment. What a joke. I am surprised the writer did not include Beyonce’s name lol

    • GyalDemSugah October 4, 2013

      How can the tweets be random when there are over 10 of them from different people. Just go on twitter and search Rihanna and Patra’s name and you’ll see what people are saying.
      Don’t be mad that Rihanna has been exposed as a thief. WHY would that girl make an entire video about it if it wasn’t true.

  18. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) October 4, 2013

    I do not want Beyonce fans replying to me, not until they can construct a sentence to the level of someone with an 8th grade education.

    No 5th grade education level sentences like your fav, my reply section is a NO BASIC ZONE.

    • Dirty Laundry October 4, 2013

      Hon they got your attention tho. I see no lies. The only thing you can do is come for peoples education you know nothing about kiii.

    • NO October 4, 2013

      Like you’re any better. ALL the time you post the same s*** over and over. You and Gaga can hold hands for being so redundant. DUMB f***.

  19. AzealiaBankable October 4, 2013

    I want to thank TGJ for featuring these videos today. I’m not a Patra stan.

  20. Dirty Laundry October 4, 2013

    Mkay lets not act like Rihanna has never stolen before. So I’m not surprised. The Navy love to think of her as original, style creator when just about everything shes done been done before. Shes been sued, shes swagger jacked sooo lets not. Shes a band wagoner.

    • ROSEGOLD October 4, 2013

      And Kelly is a flop, your point?

      • Touché October 4, 2013

        Going off topic to avoid the truth? Typical stan.

      • Dirty Laundry October 4, 2013

        @Touche Exactly. I cant with that lame comeback.

  21. Career Ender October 4, 2013

    Perhaps the Industry P**** can use its TALENT of:

    Taking naked pics and combine them to make a slide show video, now that would be MAJAH!

    Instead it chose to be THIEF-HANNA!

  22. CandyWarhol October 4, 2013

    The Navy can’t deal with these tweets and video because they believe that Rihanna is original because their musical expertise doesn’t even go back as far as MOTS which is why they don’t even talk about it.
    Yes girls, your fave is unoriginal and you’ll just have to deal.

  24. XXX October 4, 2013

    LOL I know all Rihanna fans are going to do is try and drag Beyonce into it! But lets be real, the Hive know Beyoncé has stolen, but the Navy are still in denial with the fact their fav is not as original as they like to believe.
    Ask FeFe Dobson, Kelis, David LaChappelle, Diplo and Solve Sundsbo.

  25. xedos October 4, 2013

    that girl on the video is stupid. what does wesring a silver wig have to do with anything. if rihanna was not from the island would she be saying she stole from carlene. Patra was not the first to dance like that if you born in Jamaica wining is part of what you do evey girl do evey boy do it its in your DNA.Carlene or Patra did nothing new.What Carlene do was copy downtown girls dancing and she get promoted to the world because she’s from uptown and she’s light skin. Carlene or Patra did not invent this type of dancing they came at the time when music video got popular. they were strippers in Jamaica dancing like that before Carlene. she may take it International that’s why this idiot girl in the video even know about Carlene.

  26. QueenBeyonceReigns October 4, 2013

        Silly riri stan. Janet, Aaliyah, and Ciara all have different styles of dancing. Janet’s moves are sharp. Aaliyah’s are smooth. Ciara’s are energetic. Don’t get butthurt because your fave is a fraud.

    • LiveLoveLaugh October 4, 2013

      Rihanna stans are beyond delusional smh!

  29. xedos October 4, 2013

    The problem is lots of you idiots think dancehall started with beenie man Carlene and Patra,but if it was no dancehall their would be no hip hop. Carlene comes from uptown kingston these people never use to associate with
    the rest of Jamaica they have a color complex problem. Carlene became popular because she’s light skin and she’s from uptown the media in Jamaica give her a pass. you could have gone to any dance hall session in Jamaica and see girls doing what Carlene was doing years before Carlene was even born. if anyone stole anything it Carlene who stole it from the girls in the Ghetto in Jamaica.Carlene is from uptown Kingston all they listen to back then was American Music .

    • FAF October 4, 2013

      But no one is talking about Reggae/dancehall in Jamaica, they’re talking about who made it mainstream.

      Personally, I favor Tanya Stephens over all these b****** bc she talks about DEEP issues & not just p**** music, TBH

      • xedos October 4, 2013

        and who patra or Carlene should give credit to? people were doing this before these two. if it wasn’t for videos you guys would never knew about these type of dance. Jamaican has been wining up since ska change to rock steady then to reggae. no one owe anyone anything its generic.

        so beyonce should get the credit for the single ladies dance because she made it famous when bob fossie did it first?
        makes no sense

  30. ratedxxx(bad chick) October 4, 2013

    what does beyonce has to do with this post? NOTHING

    using beyonce as way to deflect the real problem, that rihanna copied somebody without giving them props,

    is not going to make the problem go away

      Tell that to lovebird. smh he always bringing beyonce’s name in something.

      This can be asked of the Hive,why are they here, that make Beyonce name available for immediately use
      To be used as the Navy please,no answer needed.

      Stop the Hate for Rihanna and Hive and haters act right then the navy will take heed.
      If you bring a ass you will get got, no answer needed, after all this isn’t high school and you got to follow the rules.
      Asking why is Beyonce Name mentioned is like asking the Rihanna Haters ,why they Hate Rihanna even on a clear day.
      Also Why is all the News on Rihanna Reported on Rihanna and not on Beyonce bad or good,why in the F** is the Reporting one sided?

  31. Yeah I Said It October 4, 2013

    Although I disagree with a lot of what Rihanna does.

    People seem to forget that she was born in the Caribbeans.
    Don’t act surprise when she is skinning out her crotch whining into the camera.

    It’s carribean mostly Jamaican kinda thing.

  33. ratedxxx(bad chick) October 4, 2013

    rihanna may be from the island but she cannot dance for s***..she is always so stiff…

    i was watching her twerking her flat ass in that video and i’m like, really

    she has zero rhythm

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

      Stop it. She does have rhythm and she has shown that many times. you are acting delusional now.

      • 90sMusicLover October 4, 2013

        You’re the one acting delusional she can’t dance to save a life. She has no rhythm whatsoever.

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      If Rihanna can’t dance a lick,she sure in the hell
      keep people worked up and besides that,just think Rihnna Cant,and still made the same amount of money last year Beyonce made this year, Proving that sing, dance or other wise shes still paid.
      That is a Bad Bytchs who can’t dance for shyt,yet made the same paper the Queen of the World made this year without Major Backing Bonified Bad ass,and I don’t give a single shyt if she never dance like many ,including how you want her too,as compared to who?
      Rihanna is Ugly
      Rihanna Can’t dance for shyt
      Rihanna isn’t on Beyonce Level
      Rihanna is a s***, h**,Industry Pus
      Blah,Blah,Blah
      And all Saints in the Building can do it better then Rihanna can, Yet Rihanna is the only Black Bytch seem making bank Under 30 years old, for years now and counting, and have the receipts to prove it ,and is on the Forbes the List that The Black Folks Worships that count.
      So keep that Rihanna Can’t though in your mind from now on. And start hanging out with those Beyonce,Kelly, Ciar,ect all of those who can do it better ,.
      Why hang out with a chick who isn’t good at Entertaining in the first place.
      However its a free World and you can talk smack till the cows all come home. Reading those who want Rihanna to be Better then the Greats is always a good read,to Me.

  34. I&I(bare badniss) October 4, 2013

    ahhh murder she wrote still one of my favourite songs. Rihanna is doing everything I have seen before but she did mention that Patra was an inspiration for her rude boy vid. Anyways check out my lil called Samantha J her debut single “tight skirt”. She is fiyah! Both excited and scared for her at the same damn time. LOL

  35. RitasLipstick October 4, 2013

    How have I never heard of Patra before? Her videos slayed.

  36. Ms92 October 4, 2013

    I have never once heard Rihanna give credit to Patra or the other dancehall queens she modelled herself on. This not just about her wining because she’s from Caribbean its her whole ‘persona’. Which she practically admitted to being fake in her Glamour interview anyway.

    • Lana Del Slay October 4, 2013

      THANK YOU. Rihanna has never ever given credit to any of the Island girls she copies.

    • I&I(bare badniss) October 4, 2013

      Watch behind the scenes of “rude boy” and you will see.

      • Ms92 October 4, 2013

        Nowhere did I hear anything. You tried though.

      • I&I(bare badniss) October 4, 2013

        I am not even defending the chick becuz I don’t like her like that, but I remembered that quite clearly because I was so surprised when Patra’s name was mentioned. I thought they were just gonna use her influence without giving her her props.

      • Ms92 October 4, 2013

        I didn’t hear Petras name in the behind the scenes.

      • Ms92 October 4, 2013

        Patra*

    • xedos October 4, 2013

      and who patra or Carlene should give credit to? people were doing this before these two. if it wasn’t for videos you guys would never knew about these type of dance. Jamaican has been wining up since ska change to rock steady then to reggae. no one owe anyone anything its generic.

      • Ms92 October 5, 2013

        This about Rihanna not who they were inspired by. The fact Rihanna is so commercial and is making so much money off their style and clearly watching THEM, means she should at least say she was inspired by them. Its not about just wining either. Please. Its the whole image and persona.

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      MS92
      THANK YOU. Rihanna has never ever given credit to any of the Island girls she copies

      Rihanna has never ever given credit to any of the Island girls she copies

      And she was taught by Beyonce how to work ,and she never gives credit to the world Bey don’t for all her stealing, until she get caught with her hands in the cookie jar.
      That is like saying Kelly and the DC girls , need to give Credit to Beyonce every time they do something that is right, you dumb Rug Rat.

  37. Lana Del Slay October 4, 2013

    Can someone show me one interview in eight years where Rihanna has credited Patra? Oh you can’t? I thought so.

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      RIHANNA SHOUTS THE CARIBBEAN OUT OFTEN, AND NO ONE HAS TO SHOW YOU SHYT, WHO IN THE HELL DO YOU CALL YOURSELF,THEY FUKING PRIZE CONTROL.
      SHE SHOUTED THE CARIBBEAN OUT WITH PON DE REPLAY,MAN DOWN,YOU TROUBLEMAKER.
      SHE SHOUTS THE CARIBBEAN OUT EACH TIME
      SHE MAKES AN APPEARENCE WITH A NEW CHART TOPPER ARE ANY PERFORMANCES SHE EVER GRACES STAGES AROUND THE GLOBE TO DO.
      SHE SHOUTS THE CARIBBEAN OUT WHEN SHE COME HOME TO CARNIVAL, AND SHES A SPOKE PERSON FOR THE CARIBBEAN YOU CAN SHUT YOUR FUKING TRAP THE HELL UP.
      RIHANNA NEVER HAVE FORGOTTEN WHERE SHE CAME FROM YOU WEASEL OF A RUG RAT.

  38. Anon October 4, 2013

    The worst thing about Rihanna is that she can’t even whine her waist. Her body is stiffer dan de c*** she ah take.

    • MuiMui October 5, 2013

      She whines some, she don’t have to whine like no other, shes doing what she do, and it has gotten her to where she is.
      Many can dance better and harder then she can. Look at all of them who is better then her, where are they in their Career.
      You know its not the size of the boat its the motion that each artist give to their songs.
      Rihanna has crossed many hurtles doing what she does,and the world is looking,and to many its not the Load that Get you down,its the way You carry It.

      Shy I am going to have to Lurk here more and stop passing these pit stops up,because there are just to many Rug Ratsin one place ,they need to be be Beat down some by the Equalizer some more.
      Rihanna got some Fire Power ,that She have not even Tapped into Yet.

  39. Rita ORA black mailing beyonce.! October 4, 2013

    You are so sad. Are really that angry over fame? WOW! It is not that big of a deal. These dancehall queens are in their 50’s, they would be proud to see a girl from the islands making it mainstream.
    RIh was born in th islands,she can do this and does not have ask permission.

    Also, pour it up is more in the style of king of diamond, african american twerk, she did not do any dancehall moves. Did u see her whining on a head? No! Comments on youtuobe are hardly critics, u made it seem like Patra said something.

    You are just frustrated that RITA WHORA SINGLE WAS MEANT TO COME OUT IN SEPTEMBER, BUT HAS BEEN PUSHED BACK AGAIN.

  40. BowDownRihoe October 4, 2013

  49. Dreamlover October 4, 2013

    I think this is a bit of a stretch. I’m sure she was inspired by them no doubt…To me she looks more like Beyoncé in the bubble bath in her “Why Don’t You Love Me” video than anyone else…But you all are really blowing this out of proportion! It ain’t that serious 😛

  50. Rita ORA black mailing beyonce.! October 4, 2013

    The people hating on her are dark skin, kinky, weave wearing, black american, broke, in the hood with big, bolbous noses being passed up by black and white men with money. SO OF COURSE THEY HATE.

    Lool. Navy why are you falling for every other stan group’s issues? Don’t you see that these other commentators don’t have any lives? The typical ‘haters’ are up in EVERY post, there’s no point in reasoning with them; The minds that once developed has turned into mush, just let it go. @Lovebird, I love ya but just don’t bother with these h*** anymore. They obviously have no intelligence or common sense.

    @RATEDXXX(BAD CHICK)I read your comments sometimes and I don’t think you’re a hater at all but you are coming off a little ‘pressed’ in your posts. Don’t let your anger (cause I know you hate the bullying s*** and shading or whatever)cloud your judgement or what you want to convey.

    Smh… For people to not care about Rihanna there seem to be a lot of h*** on here commenting about her who are not FANS

    • Ms92 October 4, 2013

      Same could be said about all the other pop girls darling. Its blog which means you wont only get fans commenting. Go to Rihanna Daily if that’s what you want to see.

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

        I don’t care if haters or non fans come on a post of Rihanna… It’s that these same people (NAVY included) just can’t seem to stop stirring trouble, I only come on here cause they have the fastest news for all the music or should I say MAINSTREAM acts. I see your point though

      • Ms92 October 4, 2013

        But you just highlighted the fact non fans are commenting.

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

        Cause that’s all I see commenting on this post, let me put emphasis on THIS POST. From what I see on whole every stan base have their delusional and psycho members, however my original point still has merit because it’s the truth, does it not?

      • Ms92 October 4, 2013

        Hence the reason I said it a blog aka open forum. So people will continue to comment regardless of majority of her fans ironically acting ghost for once because their fav got called out. I dont see why its necessary to highlight on a blog.

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

  59. Tyler October 4, 2013

    Why the f*** does @birdshit always feel the need to bring Beyonce into everything??? The hive isn’t brand new they can admit that Beyonce has stolen. You Navy stans on the other hand always find an excuse to justify the b****** dumb as actions. Accept it! Your fave is a thief and has stolen just as much, if not more, as other artist. She’s not original, she doesn’t have a substantial amount of vocal or dancing talent, and she does outlandish things to stay afloat. Which is exactly why she waited 6 months to release that ratchet ass Joseline Hernandez/lil Kim looking ass Pour It Up video. The Navy really doesn’t have the right to shade anybody because she doesn’t excel in any area. Whether that be singing, dancing, song writing, or creativity. So sit tf down!

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

      Stop the lying please. Your idiocy gis giving me a damn aneurysm. Stop acting like the HIVE is a victim because VICTIMS do not act the way that the HIVE does. Now shut up.

      • Tyler October 4, 2013

        I know good and damn well that you are not trying to tell me to shut up….when not too long ago your remedial ass was TGJ famous for bashing Beyonce. I never said that the hive was the victim, trick. I said that you Navy b****** aren’t accepting of the fact that your fave’s a damn f*** up! Now feel free to EXIT to the motherfucking left b****.

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

      Yes h**, I have dragged Beyonce and I had fun doing it at the time because of all the DUMB HIVE going in and trying to drag me. Though I haven’t commented on any post in the longest so I thank you for remembering me. Back to the point, this post was irrelevant and made no sense because those Patra fans were doing the most. This doesn’t mean Rihanna has f***** up so that’s why I told you to shut up with your foolishness. Yes some NAVY members are delusional as f*** but are you really going to stoop to their level and comment on all the other posts and shade them? Please you’re no better than anyone else. You can’t say s*** about me because I don’t go commenting on anyone else’s post and if I did then it was referenced to her. How about you exit stage left and don’t comment on posts about mainstream artists you don’t care about. In fact take the whole dumb hive with you h**. You are dismissed. Move along please, will not reference anything to you again..

      • Tyler October 4, 2013

        Well isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black????B**** what the f*** are you talking about???? Your’re TGJ Famous for being a “beyonce basher” thus, everything that you are saying is automatically void. Don’t get mad at me just because your triflin, no talented, scientific looking ass fave is being called out for acting like a 2nd rate Fefe Dobson. And f.y.i, if being defensive is your way of trying to get people to respect your hypocritical ass point of view, you are taking the wrong initiative. And if anyone’s about to be dismissed it’s your sensitive ass….because I never addressed you in the first place. #DONT COME FOR ME UNLESS I SEND FOR YOU B****!

    R u surprised?

  61. ClockinStans October 4, 2013

    Saying Rihanna STOLE from Caribbean culture is like saying drake STOLE from Canadian culture. all the artist you named act the same, maybe because their ICONIC to Caribbean culture and influences their every day life so their influence is integrated into culture, so to say rihanna is copying them is to say foxy, Megan good, Nicki Minaj, Shantelle, and every regular Caribbean girl is copying them to. Thats literally like saying every girl that has ever died their hair bleach blonde and filled in their eyebrows dark brown is copying Madonna. Or every girl who flaunts her sexuality is copying Janet. this is honestly the dumbest accusation made about Rih yet on this site.

    • Stop the drama Start the music October 4, 2013

      FYI, nicki acts more like a New York hoodrat than a Caribbean girl. She came to the US at 5 years old…

      • ClockinStans October 5, 2013

        Point^^^^^

  62. Marley October 4, 2013

    No ones saying she stole the culture. The whole image and persona is inspired by them particular artists. Which not all Caribbean dancehall female artists are like so, yes Rihanna should say she was inspired by them.

  63. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez October 4, 2013

    Lool. Okay always running away from the point. I already stated that I did take part in the bullying but I stopped. So what is your point now? Am I still doing it? No.. So shut up and stop trying to group me with you. I swear I must have struck a nerve because now I got dumb and dumber commenting on our conversation. LOOOL… You can say whatever you want but it doesn’t justify your own actions. Dumb Hive will always be dumb unfortunately.

Rihanna is no thief like Beyonce who literally steals and replicates exact dance moves and different movements(see: Countdown video…or her entire video collection).

    The PIU video didn’t look anything like any of those videos. Were they ‘twerking’? BYE!

    The navy never can take what they dish out.
    They never stay on topic when you argue with them,every rebuttal is Beyonce(Like every person who points out Rihanna’s trashy ways are apart of the Hive).
    They make every excuse for a chick that is just itching to make them look stupid and clown them via social media.
    Any Stan base that thinks it’s funny to make fun of H.I.V deserves to be infected with it and then see if it’s still funny.
    Speaking of the hive, I have had my run in with some of the members. I will say that as a whole no where near as bad(they used to be)
    Speaking of grammar,how exactly does one get H.I.V out of hive? Hive is one word H.I
    v is an acronym. The navy is soooo much smarter(dripping with sarcasm)

    There is no arguing with the navy they are past dumb, they are brain dead zombies who worship a whorish untalented mean fake pretty b****.
    The delusions are real for real

  70. Tyler October 4, 2013

    “The dumb hive will always be dumb”???? Did Chris Brown beat the brain cells out of your head after going up Rihanna’s dome??? Because from the looks of things, you should be the last one criticizing anyone’s level of intelligence. Idk if you’ve “supposedly” stopped bullying or not, fact of the matter is, you did. Not only that, but the b**** you stan for is the bully…of all bully’s. So stop trying to talk down to the hive! And you’re not a part of the same group as me??? B****! You’re rite, because you’re worse. Not only that, but you came at me first! So miss me with all of that self righteous b*******. Not only will the Salvation Army continue to be stupid as f***, they’ll keep on being delusional, abused, and used. Every single one of you basic b****** deserve to be punched in the face with a mic.
