    You guys are becoming slow with the news. What happen? TGJ is always quick with the music new. And by quick I mean with in minutes.

    Rihanna is acrossed the world getting praise while some are at home being the 4th baby mama.

    She’s soo Cute! Still has that strong accent aww.

  4. MDNA June 4, 2014

    Too bad she’s more of a model than an actual person doer or singer. But I like her boldness when it comes to fashion.

    • Mark111 June 4, 2014

      A MaDONEa fan has no grown to judge anyone’s singing nor talent. Your b**** was the Miley of the 80’s.

    It’s official, icon means NOTHING. Pink is an icon, Lana is an icon, hell Momma D is an icon! Icon = the new “queen” title…

  6. Stephy June 4, 2014

    What a beautiful woman. Also, TGJ is LATE AS HELL with this post…

  7. Rih Rox June 4, 2014

    Gorgeous.

    I’m convinced that the “bag gal” thing is a character! She’s so sweet and well-spoken outside of social media. I remember meeting her in 2010 and she was so nice and personable. She was being rushed to her car in NYC and couldn’t stop for a pic, but she told me “I love your hair beautiful!” and blew me a kiss lol. I know her next album will be great!

    -A proud Beyonce AND Rihanna fan

    Wow late!! Anyway congrats to Rihanna

  11. coolness June 4, 2014

    She was a vision in that dress! So stunning and she’s so cute when she accepts awards. I can’t believe it took her going on a break for my interest in her to re-ignite again. I’ve always loved her but I can actually say I’m a fan now. I’ve been playing her albums through and Rated R & UNA are my top favs. Bring on R8 Rih. I know it’ll be great.

    • ozzy June 4, 2014

      Love those albums!

  12. RihIcon June 4, 2014

    Yassss slay

  13. blue June 4, 2014

    no one can ever wear a sheer anything on a red carpet again and not be compared to rihanna. did you see peter griffin rocking that dress. seriously rihanna and peter are the only people who can pull it off

  14. ozzy June 4, 2014

    YAAAASSSSS Hunny!!!! You better work that topless look. I’m not even mad at the titties being out with such a beautiful dress. R8 is what I’m really waiting for and can’t wait for tomorrows big news… Sam…. we need to talk about your tardiness for real, this is unacceptable to be so late compared to other blogs. Dont let this happen again alright.

  15. Dirty Laundry June 4, 2014

    Why have you not posted on Queen Bey donating half a million and looking banging at charity? Its much more inspiring than this naked creature accepting pointless awards

    • Yea June 5, 2014

      yet you comment…..

      • Rihboy June 5, 2014

        Rihanna consistently donates tho. So one little donation is not news worth from her. She just needed a way to stay in the news so this tour won”t flop and so she can push her stalled album. Bye

    • fatusankoh June 5, 2014

      Yes say that again dirty laundry Sam post that bey given 5000 .00 k and looking beautiful natural beauty not a make up persion they put up that what they do build up to put other people down but god made star will never be down

    Late af.. Damn sam ur getting slow get it together.. Anywayz get it rih! a true icon by all meanings, when will your faves?

  21. Rh is a legend June 5, 2014

    Beyonce is becoming more and more irrelevant by the day. That shock album fail to shut Rih Rih DOWN. This is the second time RIH has been honored by the industry: she was honored by billboard and now the most powerful woman in fashion. Vogue tweeted, ” Rih Rih does not follow fashion ( like beyonce ) she affects it.

    It means nothing that she ” cannot sing ” blah blah. Sandra Rose said all Rita ORA needs is a hit and it is over for RIH RIH. LOL LOL IN 2014, where is RITA WHORA? Well, her single flopped globally; it was only number 1 in the UK for one crappy week.

    She is now down in mexico f****** Justin bieber ( who is on his way out ) and Khalil and Calvin harris, whom she gave his 1st ever flop ( rihanna made his career in the USA ) HAS now dumped her and his stepping out with some new chicks.

    And this was the girl that was meant to END RIHANNA career .
