    Ting Tings and Rihanna? I just remembered that they singed to Roc Nation. I think it could be cool.
  2. Wow, a Ting Tings collabo with Rihanna. Strange but could work!

    The XX: ‘We Want To Work With Rihanna’

    Everyone’s favourite musical minimalists profess their love for the R’n’B diva and spare plenty of kind words for Xfm’s very own John Kennedy.

    Showing some reciprocal love in the R’n’B Goes Indie stakes are The XX. They’ve recently told Pitchfork that they’d love to work with American pop sensation Rihanna. Rihanna, of course, has recently been linked with The Ting Tings’ new album ‘Kunst’.

    “I'd love to perform with [her]”, said The XX’s Romy Madley Croft. “I remember seeing the Klaxons perform with her at the Brits a couple of years ago, and it just looked so epic. I'd love it so much. I can't wait to hear her new album”.


    So, Rihanna is working with the Ting Tings, who are working with The XX (I think?), and all 3 could be working together! Very, very interesting!
  4. I'm shocked the record company has decided to go ahead and release Rude Boy as the second single in the UK, Hard has reached a new peak of #9 in America this week. I'd hope they'd release this as a single eventually, the only other song I can see being a successful single is Fire Bomb.

    Plus, Hard has been rising on UK iTunes for a while now! And from what I understand, has also been starting to get radio play! *SIGH* Def Jam never knows what they are doing.

    I hope she leaves them after her deal is over, they are a damn mess.
  7. Riri has most top 10s by a female on the Hot 100!

    source: Billboard

    And it only took her less than 5 years to do so.

    Amazing!! So proud of her!!

    Platinum album, 2 top 10 hits, CLEARLY FLOPPING!
  9. I really do find Rihanna one of the most original artists around. To go from selling millions with a song like Umbrella, then to completely re-invent herself for the Rated R era was quite a daring thing to do, but she made it work. I don't think that, four years ago, I would have believed that the girl who sung If It's Lovin' That You Want and Pon De Replay would be singing about pulling the trigger and being (yeah yeah yeah) so hard. She really has transformed, and it really works.

    This article is RIDICULOUS!

    How Much Fashion Brands Pay For Celebrities to Sit in Their Front Rows
    by Lauren Sherman


    Carolina Herrera and Marc Jacobs have virtually banned celebrities from their front rows.

    But when it comes to labels such as Miss Sixty and Rock & Republic, it seems like the more A, B and even C-list stars they can get, the merrier.

    We tapped industry insiders to break down the cost of putting of celebrity in your front row by class of star.

    Rihanna ($100,000 or more)
    Beyonce ($80,000-$100,000)
    Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen ($80,000 each)
    Julianne Moore ($60,000 for Tommy Hilfiger)
    Maggie Gyllanhal ($60,000 for Tommy Hilfiger)
    Chloe Sevigny ($60,000 or more)
    Jennifer Lopez (circa 2005: $80,000; circa 2010: $30,000)
    Lindsay Lohan (circa 2006: $60,000; circa 2010; UNINVITED)
    Colin Firth (pre-A Single Man: $5,000; post-A Single Man: $15,000)

    Blake Lively ($50,000)
    Leighton Meester ($40,000)
    Hillary Duff ($40,000)
    Other Gossip Girl cast members ($25,000 a piece)
    Jared Leto ($25,000)
    Cliven Owen ($10,000)
    Kristen Bell (unpaid, but airfare, makeup and clothing are taken care of)

    Kim Kardashian ($35,000-$50,000)
    Amanda Bynes ($25,000-$30,000)
    Eliza Dushku (unpaid, but airfare, makeup and clothing are taken care of)

    Paris Hilton (free or UNINVITED)
    Jersey Shore cast (UNINVITED)
    America’s Next Top Model Winners (free)


    So she gets 100K for just SITTING there?! Someone needs to tell me where I can apply for this job.

    And L O L @ "Lindsay Lohan circa 2006: $60,000; circa 2010; UNINVITED"

    The Uninvited part makes it all look fan/fake.
    Doubt anyone would know all these details.

    Of course 100.000 for Ri isn't much, she's the unofficial advert for the campaign,
    in fashion mags after that, shows she like the brand (even if she doesn't)
    and connects her name to it.

    I am surprised they didn't add

    I hate that cover. Rih looks alright, but the font and everything looks so cheap and amateur. Hopefully the inside shots are better.
  13. Take a look at other i:D covers, and the aesthetic will start to make sense. It is one of the most amazing magazines - ever. I love that she's on the cover.
  14. I'm so excited for this.

    So Rihanna is in Asia doing promo right now.

    Here she is in Japan 2 days ago looking like a bad bitch:


    And arriving in South Korea today:


    Hope we can see her on one of those crazy Japanese TV shows!

    Oh wow I LOVE that, the beat is so cool.

    And yes, undoubtedly Music Of The Sun or A Girl Like Me era.
  17. 'Sexuality' is my favourite leak by Rihanna. It should have made the album that would've been if the incident never happened.
