Watch: Rihanna Struggles At ‘The Monster Tour’

Published: Friday 8th Aug 2014 by Sam

Almost two years have passed since Rihanna last released an album. As such, one would be forgiven for assuming that she’d be well-rested and refreshed.

Sadly, as attendees at the opening of ‘The Monster Tour’ in LA learned last night, that was not the case.

The Mattel Model served up limp, lazy, and lifeless showings of her hits, leaving many wondering whether she’d rather be in bed.

See what we mean below…

Granted we’ve seen her do worse, this is still all sorts of shocking for an “artist” of her caliber.

She has all the resources, bells, and whistles to deliver a much more premium product, yet here she is sounding like she’s spinning in a washing machine. There’s just not excuse for it.

On a more upbeat/on-key note, co-headliner Eminem is said to have rocked the crowd with his showings.

      • James227 August 8, 2014

        I said this before. Seems like Rihanna is using the same drugs Eminem is using. You can tell she not focus at all.

  5. Blue August 8, 2014

    48 songs performed in one night 24 each i think. 2-3 songs not theirs…like kind of discography you must have! Slay…reading nothing but great reviews from actual concert-goers.

  6. yallthirsty August 8, 2014

    wow you guys are hell reaching for that
    why ya’ll still thirsty after she’s established a name for herself. go back to mimi or something if you want vocals, riri is here for the attitude, body and singles – not to soothe focal f*** like yaself.

    • tamartian August 8, 2014

      Not even mariah can deliver anymore lawd we ave to look for tamar, deborah c**, monica and brandyto take us to that level

      • TheYoncèTroll August 8, 2014

        Mariah still shits on over sing I Am… Beyoncé Part II Muppetmar. Excuse yourself.

  7. Trance August 8, 2014

    LMAO!!! I really have no sympathy for people who pay money to see Rihanna “LIVE.” I mean what do you expect?But Rih is still a boss though. The bish is just prancing around, no f*cks given, yodelling and modeling her fashions, but people still buy tickets to see her “sing.” The joke is on us. Get money Rih. You a bad bish.

    • ~The Arcade~ August 8, 2014

      The only thing I’ve purchased of Rihanna was her Reb’l fleur perfume, never her music. I remember somebody even gave me her take a bow single, and I still have not played it, til this day. xD

  8. tits mcgee August 8, 2014

    Who edited this video, a schizophrenic 5yo?
    Anywho, the crowd seems happy with her
    performance, so what’s the problem?

    Y’all mad that the majority of the people you
    Stan for will never be her ‘caliber’ or be as
    ‘Mattel’ pretty (Beyonce excluded)..


    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

      Girl just stfu. This caint b defended

  9. Blue August 8, 2014

    When i saw the set list…i soooo badly wanted to go!!!! Top to bottom great songs. And i wondered how they shared space on others like run his town.

  10. Mimi Carey August 8, 2014

    Her slowed down version of WFL was cute

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

      She was a total f***** mess…ho

  11. LOL August 8, 2014

    Can she even sing? LOL

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      Of course she can and she has proved it many times

      • tyler August 8, 2014

        Well….can she do it now???

  12. Alex August 8, 2014

    Lies! Viewers said that both were amazing. And she killed it as well. C’mon, did you listen to We Found Love acoustic, Stay, Diamonds, Love the Way You Lie, The Monster, Stan or Airplanes?? What’s wrong with you, Sam? That was great show!

  13. TRUTH SERUM August 8, 2014

    She definitely has some hits and she can sing. Maybe she was tired… Shoulder shrugs..

    • mekaela August 8, 2014

      You know this pig Sam edited the tape
      He is a stalker and hater f** got
      With a small d***

    • ~The Arcade~ August 8, 2014

      “Maybe she was tired”?? really? Then surely, she’s been tired for the last 9 years since she’s been in the industry, right? lol #POOREXCUSE 😛

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

      Honey just admit it…she was horrible

    • lets be real August 8, 2014

      Why is it when rihanna sounds bad the stans#1 excuse, “shes tired” but then wanna clown Beyonce for doing extensive high energy shows, a womam whos 6 years older at that. How is she tired when she just stands there and hit sour notes? Rihanna is gorgeous, has a cute tone, and some monster hits. But tired?from what?

  14. B’rocka SLays August 8, 2014

    its like shes not even trying
    we know you have a range of a dial tone, but come on throw some moves out there not just some wiggles and crotch grabbing
    even tthat last one at the end seemed so half assed

    • Blue August 8, 2014

      She has the same vocal range as bey…

      • tyler August 8, 2014

        Beyone is way more control though. She’s a better vocal technician period.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014


  15. Blue August 8, 2014

    I think by now everyone knows you dont go to a rihanna show to see some next level performance, you go because its new nd fresh medium to listening to her music unlike the usual and normal tv, radio or ipod. You go for the other countless fans, you go so you can scream your lungs out to the hits of your life! You go to see a glimpse of all that perfection(a.k.a RIHANNA). you go because its one of the 11 go because thats where all the cool kids are and sam isnt.

    • RihNaj August 8, 2014


    • Lolz August 8, 2014

      Umm that’s what you do at any concert. PLUS a next level performance.

    • Notroh August 8, 2014

      You go because you’re an idiot who likes to waste money on an obscene lack of talent…

  16. TRUTH SERUM August 8, 2014

    Right now, she a little young and not focused. She has delivered before, I just hate that she’s inconsistent. That’s has nothing to do with talent and all to do with rehearsal and discipline. Give her a little time.

    • Mimi Carey August 8, 2014

      She’s been in the game for 9 years hun how much time does she need kii. These clips were not as s***** as her last tour I’ll admit

      • Blue August 8, 2014

        Rihann is still in her “set the date and they will fill the seats” phase, wait untill she is desperate when the success of her next tour depends on the performances of each live performance this girl will be so rehearsed beyonce will be called lazy next to her.

      • Mimi Carey August 8, 2014

        Dumbest s*** I ever read

      • Blue August 8, 2014

        @mimi you have seen when rihanna puts in effort…usually for tv performances and huge events, she slays…the girl can do it. Problem is she doesnt feel like she needs to try at all, when she can till fill seats doing the relaxed-i-dont-have-a-care act.

      • Blue August 8, 2014

        @mimi im not saying its right or that she shouldnt put more effort into it, im just saying thats the mentality that she is working with right now. Also read the concert-goers reviews…nothing but praise, as long as she shows up on time she usually has no problems.

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

        @blue, this shyt is a mess.

  17. Blue August 8, 2014

    Rihann is still in her “set the date and they will fill the seats” phase, wait untill she is desperate when the success of her next tour depends on the performances of each live performance this girl will be so rehearsed beyonce will be called lazy next to her.

  18. gilbert August 8, 2014

    just look at her… where’s the ENERGY?! This is the opening f****** night of your tour. Show some more energy and excitement biitch. She sounds DISGUSTING. Moves are terrible, and do u guys notice how TRASHY her songs sound? they’re rubbish and she sounds like a goat and I STILL dont get why she has lots of fans. I guess the world is delusional. I feel sorry for people who spent MONEY to watch this goat on stage. she takes her fans for granted #fact 🙂 sorry navy

  19. kim August 8, 2014

    I dont know how ppl get their lives from this. I am really trying to figure. she is so boring. I can’t. she is all hype and doesn’t live up to it, she has absolutely no showmanship. A damn shame

    • mekaela August 8, 2014

      Your b**** ass is boring gtfoh
      With that s*** Mariah can’t sing
      Live and she suppose to be a good
      Singer leave rih one the show sold
      Out and she and Em did not need your
      Welfare money to go b**** who u Stan
      For really stfu and eat s***

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

        THOT BOT BIITCH THIS IS HORRIBLE! Stop tryna defend it

  20. gilbert August 8, 2014

    …and if she LOOKS and SOUNDS THIS TIRED on the opening night… imagine the rest of the tour. she’s probably gonna perform from her bedroom LMAO #lazygirl

    • mekaela August 8, 2014

      How u know we’re u there u are listening
      To a site that hates rih all day
      Everyday and edit stuff u haters have
      no life

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

        Daaawln…that was her voice. There was NO editting that banshee earbleeding noise so just DEAL! She satan anyways

    • ~The Arcade~ August 8, 2014

      @gilbert lol xD 😀 😀 xD

  21. Kandi August 8, 2014

    You people, you people, you people (n my BEST whitney houston voice) let her live already….

  22. RICHIE_RICH August 8, 2014

    Come on Rih, you can do much better babe. Where is the effort? I shade Rih, but I also like her and think she makes cute club music no shade. I think if she puts more effort in singing lesson and stage presence, she’ll really be a force to be reckoned with.

  23. Beysus August 8, 2014

    LOL hardly any costume changes, copying Aaliyah and 2 setlists that are sooo last year clumped together with a few differences??? HAAA!!! WTF is up with that??? And no new material from Rihanna??? It’ll be a struggle for her next album! I’m sure there was plenty of playback being used! BORING!!!

    ORT Tour > Monster Tour


    *sips tea*

  24. Beysus August 8, 2014

    Look, people are only excited because “Oh, it’s Rihanna and Eminem together!” So much hype yet no-one buys Rihanna’s albums anymore. The OTR Tour was all about Music, Art, Quality, and Life. But this???? I don’t know what the hell this was. There’s no quality in Rihanna’s music anymore, not since Rated R (and maybe half of Loud).

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      No one buys Rihanna’s albums but she has outsold Beyonce’s albums for the past 5 years. And Beyonce’ has yet to outsell Unapologetic. Unapologetic 3,6 mill.
      Beyonce 3,4 mill.

      • Beysus August 8, 2014

        Yea but that’s worldwide!

        Unapolegetic (with 1 #1 single, another big single, mixed reviews and 4 VEVO certified videos) = 1.1 Mill in USA after 1 1/2 years

        BEYONCE (with no hype, 1 #2 single and critical acclaim) = 2 Mill in USA after 6 months

  25. Bey Fan August 8, 2014

    I thought she did ok until it got to where have you been….. but i dont wanna judge this based of 5 second clippings. And the first show is always the one with the most mishaps… She looked good. Not a lot of stage presence, but then again these clippings were bad. Horrible recording and editing…

    I will say this tho…. i see why Beyonce gets praises. Her stage presence is unmatched.

    I hope TGJ post better clippings.

  26. ~The Arcade~ August 8, 2014

    Okay she sounded ‘decent’ here compared to that clip of her singing the Stan chorus last week. However, she needs to step up the ENERGY, how come your backup dancers are going much harder than you, and its YOUR concert?? I wish someone in her circle would just be upfront and tell the truth, let her know that she’s lacking stage presence, PLEASE SOMEBODY, ANYBODY!!! YIKES!!!

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

      Honey if she caint c that and know she a mess then she’s too far gon. Ho

  27. Overthis August 8, 2014

    So em does stellar and y’all don’t post his footage and rihanna “does horrible” and y’all post snippets ? Grow up f*** this will be my last time on this s*** site

    • Rihboy August 8, 2014

      They posted snippets because they looked for all her pitch areas. Ive seen full footage and her vocals were ok. She absolutely no backing, or effect. I commend her for that. Because we all know bey been caught with that mic away from her mouth a few times. Pulling that britney stease

      • RICHIE_RICH August 8, 2014

        We also know that Beyonce can sing live with or without back tracking. Can we say the same for Rih?

  28. Lolz August 8, 2014

    Some people have such basic standards. Praising her for being ‘ok’ on the opening night? Bahahaha.

  29. Mike August 8, 2014

    I like Rihanna but she needs to have a real good flop to wake her up; her voice sounded like it was dragging and that she really didn’t want to be there. She basically sleep walked through her performances.

  30. I Stan For Myself August 8, 2014

    She’s like a zombie on stage. Absolutely no charisma or effort. And I think people are so used to those vocals and energy being sub par most of the time they don’t even see the drag anymore. I mean really what is this girls flair? Fashion? LOL. Every other female has gone down for something musically related when it comes to talent whether its their artistry, singing or performing skills. This girl has absolutely nothing she’ll be recognized for besides her fashion. Even her hits are forgettable besides that stupid ella ella song. Useless.

    • ~The Arcade~ August 8, 2014

      Exactly, even CURRENT britney spears has more to offer than this, I don’t get it, new artists would LOVE to be where she’s at and she doesn’t care nor delivers. I wish Janelle Monae would REALLY blow up already, as she is someone who is deserving of all the accolades and really says something in her music.

    • Rihboy August 8, 2014

      You mad? She will be in the history books for both fashion and music. So you might as well get over it.

  31. xedos August 8, 2014

    why they’re no pressure on white artist to dance on stage,but everyone expect a black artist dance?its like staying in a hotel and some white folks thinks you’re the bell boy because you’re black.

    • JBFan August 8, 2014

      I would have to disagree on this, Every inch of movement Britney does on stage is analyzed lol. How she executes her dancing etc lol. The expectations for her to have a lot of dancing is pretty high. Granted there are no expectations as far as singing live is concerned but this is about what you said about no pressure on white artists to dance lol.

      • Rihboy August 8, 2014

        Her moves were analyzed because there were no vocals involved. If i was lipping a whole routine, id be flawless too.

  32. truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

    Honey i actually feel sorry for her

  33. Rihboy August 8, 2014

    She looks like she is putting on some weight. Them legs! Moreover, she did seem a little laid back. She still delivered tho. Im pretty sure as the tour goes progresses so will she. You guys putting her against a bey template must mean something. Pressed to point out flaws, but forgot one fact. She is still paid. People go to see her because they love her. Let her llive. Right now bey, jay, em, and rih are touring. So anyone outside that bracket should be silent. The fact that you guys are even bothered shows you stan. Its ok. I stan for bey too when she is authentic. But i dont know who this yonce girl is. Just rih imitation persona wise. Bey dont do half of what she been singing about lately. She just want to relate to her f**** coons.

    • former rihanna stan August 8, 2014


  34. fatusankoh August 8, 2014

    Omg her voice is do bad no wounder they are given away their ticket is.sad she is famouse she have no talente

    • Rihboy August 8, 2014

      Honey majority of the shows are sold out. And bey and jay gave away tickets too. So please stop. The shade is tired and repetitive. Come harder.

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      fat sankoh
      At least she sings LIVE unlike the thief beyonce you stan for. How many times has beyonce been caught lip syncing? By the way, learn some grammar you look so stupid.

  35. pu$$y juice lover August 8, 2014

    Dude stfu she slayed careers and the show overall was everything. Stop with ur obseesed hate, u sound dumb and pressed.

  36. #Dismissed August 8, 2014

    Well we all know Riri doesn’t have a good stage presence but this was amazing tbh. She performed good. Sam stop hating on her when u stan for basic hos like C-Error who can’t even go on tour.

  37. Dirty Laundry August 8, 2014

    Mess. I couldn’t get past the first minute.

    • Rihboy August 8, 2014

      Seems like you did tho.

    • pu$$y juice lover August 8, 2014

      The shade write itself darling.

  38. MisdamenorFan August 8, 2014

    Pat that pastry Rih!

  39. Ok… August 8, 2014

    You think Rihanna is boring because she doesnt have a ton of lights, fire, echo voice effects, and movies to distract the audience like OTHERS!

    • pu$$y juice lover August 8, 2014

      Yassss sis tell that truth

    • Carmen August 8, 2014

      Theres no truth in that whatsoever. Some can live up to their stage set and beyond, Rihanna cannot. Dont you dare have the audacity to throw shade at genuine performers just because Rihanna is a talentless puppet.

      • Rihboy August 8, 2014

        Girl. Beys show is 95 percent theatrics, 2 percent back up dancers, 3 percent bey. Be seated.

      • Special Delivery August 8, 2014

        The lies. Please do not come for something you know NOTHING about.

      • Sandra August 8, 2014

        Beyonce is not all that as a performer, she recycles everything and doesn’t even sing live most of the time. Sorry not sorry
        Rihanna always sings live and doesn’t rely on props and 100 back updancers like beyance

      • Carmen August 8, 2014

        Luck I came back to see this @Sandra. I suggest you go and watch I Am… Yours (live in LAS Vegas) if you think Beyoncé needs props, cannot sing live for majority of a show and 100 back up dancers to still s*** on literally everything Rihanna can do. I’m sorry but this type of delusion is just uncalled for. Beyoncé may put on spectacular shows with amazing affects, but unlike Rihanna she can back it up with her ability. Rihanna uses just as many props AND backing tracks, but unlike Beyoncé she is not an acclaimed performer. So no one cares whether YOU think Beyoncé is ‘all that’ because she already has the credentials regardless.

      • Ok… August 8, 2014

        Chile please!!!! Beyonce has recycled Tina Turner and Michael Jackson and spit it back out to you while high powered industry fans blows in her face and your delusional behind think its the greatest things ever. IT ALL STARTED WITH MISS ANNA MAE BLULLOCK!

  40. Carmen August 8, 2014

    Her live vocals make cringe. Flat, soulless and uninspiring. Not to mention the energy of death warmed up. You’d think at her age she’d be at her peak of performing and at least hired a vocal coach.

    • ~The Arcade~ August 8, 2014

      “…the energy of death” OMGOSH!! some of you guys are really creative with your DRAAG. LOL 😀

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      When was the last time anyone heard Beyonce live vocals? Considering she lip syncs all the time. Real live vocals that aren’t always perfect >>> FAKE lip syncing from beyonce
      By the way, stop putting beyance on some pedestal and act like she’s a great performer, it’s getting really ridiculous lol

  41. Cindy August 8, 2014

    I know the Navy aren’t trying to come for Bey as a singer or performer, because Bey has done acapellas that put this ish to shame. Keep it cute, I watched a couple of clips and I thought she did okay. She has improved definitely over the years. Now, if this was anyone else y’all would have been shouting copycat, she is dressed as Aaliyah on that stage, but she is so original right? lol. I’m crying at some of you thinking she doesn’t have backing tracks, when the Mic isn’t by her mouth 50% of the time lol

    • Carmen August 8, 2014

      Exactly smh. Its just out of their depth. The NERVE. No matter what Beyonce does on stage it remains superior to Rihanna. They should stick to throwing shade at people on her level of performing like Katy and Todays Britney.

      • Sandra August 8, 2014

        Byeonce is overrated as a performer. You act like she’s up there with the greats when she rarely sings live, shakes her ass and looks tired most of the time.
        Rihanna may not be the best performer but she doesn’t hype herself up like beyonce does, and Rihanna doesn’t try to fool her audience by lip syncing

      • Carmen August 8, 2014

        She is up there with the greats. Like it or not she is. Hence why she is Rolling Stones greatest live performers (top female after Madonna) and Rihanna is not. Now deal with it.

      • Carmen August 8, 2014

        is in*

      • Carmen August 8, 2014

        Beyonce doesnt hype herself up as performer. She IS hyped… For a reason.

  42. former rihanna stan August 8, 2014

    And this is why I ma glad I FINALLY WOKE UP AND SMELLED THE COFFEE. I was there; I gave the 1st reviews of the Ciara thread.

    Rihanna: She must have sold her soul to the devil or done voodoo to make it cos SHE IS WACK! Even JLO AND BRIT can at least DANCE professionally.

    SHE IS REALLY SKINNY NOW, she is like a ruler. She swagger jacked Aahliyah style, hair, clothes and moves. She is 26, but she was performs [ if u wanna call it that ] like 14 year old family BBQ. She is west indian and she can’t dance! She cannot even whine. She seemed like she had no energy and was out of breath.

    SHE CANNOT SING….ALL SHE DONE WAS TALK HER THROUGH IN A YARDIE JAMIACAN ACCENT AND SAY, ” Mother f*****” and ” y’all ” She was not need don this tour. Most people were there for EM, when he was not on stage they sat through Rihanna’s set. The crowd was not really hype for her. She is worse than now, then when I saw her in London last year. She is not an artist. She just Kim K media Hype with mic. She is not gonna last. When she gets old and radio stop playing her. THAT IS IT!

    Emimem: Consider him of of Americas greatest living performers EVER EVER EVER EVER. 41? AND HE ROCKED IT…….THE CROWD WAS NUTS; Why does he not tour more? EVEN his hype Denaun porter had more stage presence and energy than Rihanna. I love how him and Em interacted, they were truly like brothers, race does not matter. I am love with slim shady, he is part 2 pac and Part bruce springsteing. She needs to do a Super Bowl. He was even dancing a lil – white boy got moves. I love him.

    rihanan ” hits ” are weak and don’t work on tours, not in the long run. The only songs that had the crowd attentive was Stay, WFL AND DIAMONDS. ALL the rest fizzled and flopped.

    Summary: I need to see On the run in Paris and EMIMEM is one of our GREA AMERICAN LEGENDS. I don’t mean rap, I mean USA HISTORY, He has god given talent

      You are right about that voodoo work to be famouse but will turn against her she have no talente

        She is French b****. That why she spells like that.

      former rihanna stan:
      Stop pretending you were ever a Rihanna fan when we all know you’re a beyonce stan

      • Special Delivery August 8, 2014

        No way was SYBIL a Beyoncé stan. She used to drag the s*** out of Beyoncé until she saw the light.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

      Agreed with everything you said about Eminem.

  43. former rihanna stan August 8, 2014

    RITA ORA needs to re change her attack. Stop taking her left over tracks, stand up to roc as pINK did LA REID. Then attack rihanna on live shows. THAT IS HOW SHE WILL END HER . I cannot wait for rihanna to hit 30 and age. When she has to compete with new singers.

    I really want to say sorry for going in on year over this girl. You were e100 % right. I hope you and others accept my apology. I guess some folks need to learn the hard way.

  46. former rihanna stan August 8, 2014


    This has nothing to do with with much, But Chris martin from coldplay knows jay z and Rihanna – even Rita and BEY. But I think he has an asian girl fetish!

    They say he cheats on tour with asian women

    His bandmate is married to an Asian woman

    He has been seeing Alexa chung on the low

    He casted Zang Ziyi as actress in his video

    His has songs called yellow, princess of china and lovers in japan

  47. whatever August 8, 2014

    lol. i could have told anybody yesterday that you gonna do that post here. boring. predictable. nothing to comment. we know that she not perfect. neither is beyonce. 😛

    just forget it @sam. click, ton ads. but that’s it. bye. 😆

  48. supernova_83 August 8, 2014

    Seems fine to me and I’m not even a fan, actually made me want to see her!

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      I agree! People will always be pressed over the biggest female artist of this generation but Rihanna stays unbothered. She did great on this tour!

  49. RICHIE_RICH August 8, 2014

    What does FeFe Dobson, Rita Ora and Aaliyah have in common?

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      They are all beautiful and original unlike the person in your avi

      • tyler August 8, 2014

        No, they were all swagger jacked by E.T’s spawn…I mean Rihanna

    • Special Delivery August 8, 2014

      Rihanna swagger Jacked them. And the NAVY think she soooo original. The irony.

      • RICHIE_RICH August 8, 2014

        You gotta it. What’s wrong with this Sandra rose look alike?

  50. TheYoncèTroll August 8, 2014

    LMAO I only came here to read the comments. You all are so delusional. You keep giving Sam his rent money.

  51. Mark111 August 8, 2014

    Dat Aaliyah impact! And they say she’s not an icon? Ha! I love that my OG Fave inspires my fave (this gen). And I like how it’s an owe to the great Aaliyah Vs jacking her style like that other dancer that can’t book a stage to save her like. She did well. I think people want her to be Beyonce, but NO ONE can be Bey but Bey. Rih brings the fun and that’s why I like her. One’s a show girl and the other is a party girl.

  52. Sandra August 8, 2014

    Rihanna did great. I love this tour, it’s way better than the tired On the run tour

    • Special Delivery August 8, 2014

      Critics disagree. On the run is ART, it tells a story.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

      LMAO. Stop it. Just because you don’t like Beyonce doesn’t mean you have to delude yourself. #StopLying.

  53. Sandra August 8, 2014

    I really wish they bring this tour to Europe!!! I would love to see Rihanna, she’s a great entertainer and she doesn’t lip sync unlike some other people that I won’t name. I don’t care for Eminem though but I’d gladly spend my money on the most successful black artist of this generation Rihanna.

      • Andre August 13, 2014

        I’m not really sure if she was lip-synching in that clip either, singing with a track definitely. But who cares anyway? Each of these artists are to do one thing and that is entertain. If you’re entertained, great. If not, fine – that’s not the artist for you. This debate is petty. While we’re sitting her talking about what they’re doing, you know what they’re doing? NOT talking about what we’re doing, they’re getting PAID.

  54. Special Delivery August 8, 2014

    OTR>>>>>>> This
    Beyonces upcoming 15 minutes at the VMAS>>>>> This whole Tour.

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      When will Beyoncé outsell Unapologetic?

      • Special Delivery August 8, 2014

        Probably after her epic VMAs tribute since its less that 200k behind. Don’t hold your breath.

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

        But wasn’t UNA released in 2012? Yet Beyonce will is only a step away from surpassing it.

      • Special Delivery August 8, 2014

        OKAY! @ Beyhive_Minaj. They say ‘when will’ like its taking ages lol.

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

        LMAO. It’s hilarious tbh. Like,OK,let’s just skip over the fact that UNA took months to go platinum.

      • B. Hill August 8, 2014

        When will Rihanna score an RIAA-certified multiplatinum album? Unapolocrap has been out for almost 2 yrs and is still stuck at just barely a million sold in the US, the most important music market in the world. Beyonce’s album got a 2x platinum certification after only being out for 6 months or so. ROFLMAO!

      • former rihanna stan August 8, 2014

        It has only been 7 months. UNA took over year to cross figures. The question is? Will rihanan be able to sell over 3 million after 15 years in the game?

  55. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

    Rihanna just can’t ever please TGJ. Smh,just SMH. I thought she did fine.

  56. James227 August 8, 2014

    I said this before and I’ll say it again. Seems like Rihanna is using the same drugs Eminem IS using. Notice since the tour with this drug addict she has not bee the same. That performance was horrible and those Eminem followers are probably high themselves. Anyway I hope this is not the case because this will be the down fall of her career those hard drugs.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

      You do know that Eminem has been sober and clean for 6 years now,right?

      • James227 August 8, 2014

        Clean???? Okay ha!

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

        Yes,clean. He even made a whole album about how drugs affected his life. (Recovery). Why the f*** would he go back to the habit that almost got him killed?

    • sashay August 8, 2014

      These people are so desperate to shade Rihanna their will drag Eminem down in the process.

  57. James227 August 8, 2014

    I seen Bey and Rihanna in concert and I’ll say one thing even tho Rihanna did very well Bey brought it. We all know that Beyonce really takes control of the stage. Her all women band holds her down and that’s whats up.

  58. Carmen August 8, 2014

    Rihanna fans need to stop with this Beyoncé needs props b*******. Beyoncé has multiple LIVE sets that put that weak claim to bed (I am.. Yours being one). Last time I checked Rihanna has all the props Beyoncé does and is STILL s***. Just stop with this nonsense coming for Beyoncé to defend Rihanna is NOT the way forward.

    • James227 August 8, 2014

      agree with your comment 100%

  59. Carmen August 8, 2014

    And not this Sandra fool asking when was the last time Beyoncé sung live…. Ummmmm her last performance at On the Run Tour which was like TWO DAYS AGO?

    • Sandra August 8, 2014

      I didn’t say she never sings live but she does lip sync a big amount even though she’s supposed to be equal to mariah and whitney according to her fans.

      • Carmen August 8, 2014

        Omg Lord Jesus spare this fool of her stupidity. You are on your way to being dismissed very soon. You asked when the LAST time was, I gave you answer. Beyonce sings along to pre recorded tracks for her up beat songs NO MORE than Rihanna. Take the pre record away, she can still put on a stellar LIVE vocal unlike Rihanna at her shows. And who TF mentioned Whitney and Mariah? But while we’re here, don’t they lip sync as well? Doesn’t take away from their ability as vocalists. Same goes for Beyoncé as a performer.

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

        Of course singing live while dancing can be tiring. Besides,some of the songs she performs live are vocally challenging and can damage her voice if she sings live every night. You would know this if you stanned for a REAL performer.

      • Carmen August 8, 2014

        @Beyhive_Minaj THANK YOU! I was going to go into all that but thought I’d keep it basic for this simpleton. There’s a difference between using a backing track because of high energy performances/preserving your voice compared to using one because you CANNOT sing well live (Britney, sometimes Rihanna). Its basic common sense.

  60. Sandra August 8, 2014

    special deliver
    beyhive minaj
    Well the Beyonce’ album has stopped selling a few months ago, it stalled at 3,4 million so I wouldn’t be too sure she will sell another 200k out of nowhere.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

      And exactly what promo has she done besides the Grammys and Brits? I’ll wait.

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2014

        And please don’t mention the tour specials being aired.

  61. Lily August 8, 2014

    Here they come with their s***** hating post about Rih. Everybody/blog were praising #TheMonsterTour and Rih so Sam you need to STFU. I wonder how Sam look, cus with Rihanna stuck in his brain he’s gonna look like a dry fish with tiny tiny legs like chewing stick. Hope oneday Hypertension or Hear Attack visit you when you’re hating on Rih so when they asked you, you gonna say I was hating on Rih it struck me.

  62. Sandra August 8, 2014

    B hill:
    Hhaha the self shade. Beyonce can keep her “2x platinum album”, the real question is why hasn’t she outsold Unapologetic GLOBALLY? The US isn’t the whole world. Are you insinuating that Beyonce is local?

    • former rihanna stan August 8, 2014


      Rihanna doen XFACTOR


      777 TOUR


      Vicoria secret show



      Graham norton

      ALL beyonce done was shock release and then follow up with grammy’s. If, she had done shock release during the Super Bowl, she would have been on 5 mill by now. PLUS, TV is hungry for beyonce perormance and sit down chat. THE FACT THAT SHE IS OVER 3 WITH just that, doing RNB with no RADI POP HIT, after 15 years at the age of 33 shows WHO THE REAL QUEEN OF POP.

    • former rihanna stan August 8, 2014


    • B. Hill August 8, 2014

      “Self shade,” my ass. That little couple hundred thousand divide between them in WW sales ain’t s***. If she wanted, Beyonce could go on a 6 wk promo tour to close that insignificant gap. But she ain’t pressed, so she’s not bothering. The bottom line is that the US is the most important market and in the US, Bey has in 7 months DOUBLED what Rihanna has still failed to do in nearly 2 yrs. Rihanna hasn’t seen an RIAA multiplatinum certification for an album in almost 10 YEARS! ROFLMAO! And the one she has is her ONLY one and its only 2x platinum (and that was back when albums were still selling.) The self shade here is that you’re actually trying to brag on an almost 2 yr old album that has only sold about 200k more globally than an album that’s only 8 months old, while the 8 month old album literally KICKED THE OTHERS ASS in America – THE MOST IMPORTANT territory. I’d rather be “Beyonce local” than “Rihanna global” because the latter aint sh*t!!! Anything else?

  63. former rihanna stan August 8, 2014

    Rihanan just proves that the music industry deserves to be crippled. I remember the days when u needed talent. Ever Britney could dance up a storm and own that stage. Now, with Rihanna, One direction justin bieber, pit bull, jason derulo, florida…..I am glad that the music industry cannot make money,. KARMA FOR ALLOWING WACKNESS TO PROSPER over talent.

    BTW: I only bought rihanna albums on discount I never spent full price.

  64. Cupid August 8, 2014

    YAAAAAAAAASSSSSSS RIH!!! I just need more energy and she’ll be perfect!

  65. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez August 8, 2014

    She must be tired of all those texts and calls from Drake and Chris begging her to take them back. I see the hive will open their arms wide for anyone that hates Rihanna or navy. Sad, you can take Sybil if you want, I mean the navy never wanted him to begin with .. Matter of fact neither did the hive so what changed? Lmfao.. So sad

  66. Yeah I Said It August 8, 2014

    Death. If this was anone else the Navy would be screaming copycat. A blatant Aaliyah theft. And I aint never heard of Rihanna citing Aaliyah or Kelis as an inspiration. And the vocals were atrocious as usual.

  67. sashay August 8, 2014

    Well she got good reviews from the sources that matter (eg Rolling stones & Billboard). You people in here shading her weren’t going to see her any way so no revenue lost.

  68. Brian310 August 8, 2014

    She wasn’t bad at all and not everyone is gonna be a dancer I mean she hasn’t done it much over the years so why would anyone expect her to do it now. Her outfit was definitely Aaliyah inspired ALL THE WAY.

  69. Rosie August 8, 2014

    What about the 17 people getting arrested last night? And the Navi has the nerve to call the Beyhive classless.

  70. HTown Vicious August 8, 2014

    Well, I honestly don’t see anything wrong with the video in this article. I mean, Rihanna isn’t very energetic on stage ever. I’m gonna be mature and say this…TGJ’s staff is full of The BeyHive. I too, stan for Bey, but y’all set the same expectation for a Rihanna performance and y’all shouldn’t. They’re two totally different artist. Now, Rihanna could put a little more emphasis in her performances but this one has nothing really wrong with it. Just my opinion.

  71. DJ August 8, 2014

    she sounds okay but looks high or half sleep or both

  72. Iconic riri August 10, 2014

    Everyone is not fraudyonce who has be recycling the same s*** year after year. Fraudyonce fans has been brain washed if they are so blind to see that they been played for the same s*** year after year.

  73. Carl August 10, 2014

    She doesn’t sound like bad, I remember when I saw her at the DWT in London. She was amazing

  74. Rihanna #1 fan t August 10, 2014

    She slayed… That Grape Juice is just hating.. Learn to give credit where credit is due.. i bet you when the VMAS comes up and Beyonce performs they will be all over her ass… !!
