  10. tell'em

    Promo is on a roll. Should be good. Death to the haters…


  11. hellno

    i’m looking forward to it…some are saying that they don’t like the song…and many are saying they are loving it…while she may lose some fans…she’s gaining a lot more because her songs are more meaningful. She’s hurt, so she’s expressing how she’s feeling. if she came out with a club, uptempo and a.s.s shaking video everyone would of said she was never hurt.

    I WANT THE OLD RIHANNA BACK! She was looking pretty good and had more of a natural sound-She needs to request her release from Def Jam and find a label that will let her be her.

    Saw some pics of her at Six Flags with the natural look-THAT’s what I want to see more of. Not the industry’s toy!

    Glad that Teairra Mari got away from that while she had her chance-AT THAT POINT NOVEMBER 17!


  20. FTW!

    YAYAYAY!!!!! GO RIHRIH!!!! It would be gr8 if Beyonce was performing as well. Can’t wait for jay-z either.. Don’t care at all about J Lo… (maybe coz i haven’t heard/seen her perform)


  21. B

    Beyonce wouldnt even be attending talkless of performing. She’ll be on tour, shes got a show that day in Dublin, Ireland. So no Beyonce, but its ok anyways, we still got Jay and AK….

  23. trish

    I’m glad she is getting back on her feet…but her onstage energy is WACKKKKKK! Don’t get me wrong she is a good-looking girl and I will legally download any new songs I like from her new album.

    Lucky for me, I will not see the AMAs bcuz I will most likely be @ the Chris Brown concert in Richmond that evening seeing….dare I say it…a REAL performance.
