Fantastic news below….

Billy Walsh, the brains behind the operation, learned of the news after he and Fenty picked up the ‘Shoe of the Year’ award at the FN Achievement Awards.

Puma CEO Bjørn Gulden had this to say about Rihanna’s relationship with the company:

Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma.Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition – all these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. With a strong portfolio in football, running and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women’s training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us. We’re delighted to have her as a partner, and we’re looking forward to what’s to come.

Exciting times!

Her latest batch of good news arrived after she learned that the aforementioned ‘ANTI’ had picked up eight grammy nominations.

    • Rihboy December 9, 2016

      Lol and bey can sell only her music. And barely that. While she is busy purchasing her next granny and or magazine slots; Rih is working all of the industries. Effortlessly at that. Yet the charts never seem to hold her in place beyond a week. Rih sells all of it and it’s proven! Multiple platinum plaques boo. While your fave is an everyday proof of crap music sold by propaganda and gimmicks. Now riddle me this. Where is any of lemonades songs on the charts? Is it a:no where b no where or c somewhere.

  6. Anthony December 9, 2016

    Rihanna is so pretty. With that said, fashion is synonymous with her petty, pressed, spineless, back peddling ass. Congrats girl.

    • gina December 9, 2016

      so can you explain why beyonce always fails at fashion?

      • Anthony December 9, 2016

        Is this a Beyonce or a Rihanna post? Ok, so stay on topic bish ?

  7. Career Ender December 9, 2016

    where is her name on that shoe?

    • gina December 9, 2016

      her name is on the check from the sales bug. where’s ivy park? at the swap meet?

    • Rosy December 9, 2016

      Girl give it up beyonce will never win when it comes to fashion rih can give up music and be successfully in other areas how long can bey pop her p**** on stage really b**** leave rih alone and ask yourself why rih made more money than your queen last year

  8. Career Ender December 9, 2016

    • ?Yellow Diamonds? December 9, 2016

      Lol yasss read that South African beast

  14. Hi Jamon December 9, 2016

    “CAREER ENDER” needs to pick up a hobby!! Rihanna gave Samsung 1 million copies for $25 million and still sold close to 600,000, which puts her sales at 1.6 million. Say what you want, buy she got paid. I don’t recall anyone else getting that deal. Anti isn’t anywhere near a flop, all those sells count and any artist would of taken that deal. You know Anti would have sold over a million without Samsung!! She had a #1 single, 2 top tens, and 2 top thirty singles this year.

    • Rihboy December 9, 2016

      Thank you for breaking that down for them. She got paid 25 million to produce an album and tour for it and still came up on it. While bey gets her mesaily coins from what she sold and the majority from her tour which did do well. But at the end of the day rihanna probably and does have the bigger pay out. Especially after she adds on all of the extra curricular activities that took place during this era!!! Lemonafes songs flopped so hard. I whole heartedly believer paid for some of those nominations.

  15. Credits December 9, 2016

    Congrats to her because we know that those shoes are selling for her name alone. They’re ugly! How come no one has said this yet? Well, to me they are.

  16. Kiii December 9, 2016

    These are so cute!!!

  17. Mr.StLaurent December 9, 2016

    Don’t like the creepers. Nothing to do with Rihanna. ?
    Prefer “The trainer”

  18. Shakira Stan December 9, 2016

    How’s house of flopion doing?

  19. Shakira Stan December 9, 2016

    Is Solange still working as a cashier?

  20. Molly #Stargirl December 9, 2016

    Queen of music and fashion bey could neva

  21. Briano December 9, 2016

    Its sad how hateful and bitter those bugs are

  22. B_Roni December 9, 2016

    How are you going tell someone there album may not have sold the amount “they” wanted it to sell as if your in her head. Secondly I’m convinced fellow blacks just are jealous of this woman because she is one of the highest paid black people. Some are commenting saying she sold less than Justin Bieber but Justin Bieber sold more than 99% of the black artist who put out an album this past year and sold more than a lot of white artist. Year after year it’s the same thing. Rihanna won’t be here for long or she is done. You would think people would get tired of trying to make their hopes and dreams for Rihanna to go away come true. I personally think this is her best album and would like her to continue in this direction. I’m going to always support her.

  23. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 9, 2016

    Those shoes are ugly as hell, but congrats nonetheless.

  24. Keri Qween December 9, 2016

    Queennn

  25. Fenty December 9, 2016

    Meanwhile LOTB is killing the BB100 without any type of promo! Hold Up I Ain’t Charting, Sorry For Flopping and All Night At The Bottom of The Charts are nowhere to be found!!

    • Lola December 9, 2016

      What about flopping lessons?

      • ?Yellow Diamonds? December 9, 2016

        Grammys rejected it

  26. No favs, just here for the music December 9, 2016

    Uhhhh no offense but those shoes look really tacky. Maybe it’s the color? I’m happy for her though seeing as they sold out so quickly. With certain celebrities their name alone will sell anything and Rihanna is one of them no doubt.

  27. ShakaZulu December 9, 2016

    It’s such a ki how Rihanna fans can’t just be happy for Rihanna they gotta throw BEYONCÉ name up ? Y’all just be happy that for the first time she sold out within hours cause we all know she’s the Queen of fashion!

    • Lola December 9, 2016

      Boy please read up and you’ll see that it’s a Beyonce Stan who provoked the navy by leaving multiple comments as opposed to sticking to the topic at hand

    • ?Yellow Diamonds? December 9, 2016

      Lmao not the first time, do your research!!

    • Briano December 9, 2016

      Now the bugs play victim you all are a miserable hypocritical hateful crew

    • Rihboy December 9, 2016

      Stop dead in your tracks and kill your self! The hive brings up rihanna at every corner they turn so please stop! The funny thing is im not worried about bey because I already know that her music is b******* and she ain’t nothing but a put together something like a gimmic built like a collage. She does nothing for me musically. Bur I don’t look down on her achievements. Whatever those are. But whenever rihanna achieves something you hive fans try to find a way to bring her down. Don’t waste that valuable time. Seethe over something worth seething over. Like lemonades singles dwindling on the bubbling under. Tyrone must not be getting paid enough to promote this era.

  28. ?Yellow Diamonds? December 9, 2016

    Hey Sam, David and Rashad where’s the lemonade sold millions but fails to get ivy park off the ground post?

    But anyway does she only put a limited amount on the main Puma website? Cause I checked Nordstrom and there are still plenty in stock there

  44. Memo December 9, 2016

    These b****** talk about Lemonade as if it woulda sold as 25 did. Lemonade is a flop by ANY standard.

    • Briano December 9, 2016

      Exactly that is why they need to shut up after allllllll that hype, controversy, super bowl, video for every song..and this so called sold out stadium tour

      Not even 3 million records sold and no hits

      B*****, sit.

    • Kevin December 9, 2016

      ? Still upset because anti was omitted from the albums category I see. ?

      • Memo December 9, 2016

        I’m not a Rihanna stan. I am just fair and honest about the fact Lemonade isn’t a big seller.

  45. Ann December 9, 2016

    I just found out Rihanna didn’t even design these shoes? Why doesn’t she ever mention/give the guy who did design them credit?
    I don’t get it lol so she just slapped her name on it?
    This completely changes my view on it I mean still congrats to the success of the shoe but she’s winning awards like shoe of the year etc.. for a shoe that she didn’t contribute on is kinda wrong imo
    Did Kanye even design yeezys? Smh

  46. Lea December 9, 2016

    While Tina out here endorsing her daughter’s Ivy Park trash doing old granny push-ups and it still ain’t selling…
