    @light bright, Ri actually has nine.. ugh lol and majority of them are for collaborations! NEXT!! She has Grammys with other artist names attached to them.. and by the way destiny child had four number ones. And Bey was really the group..lol so u might as well count that.. and she’s comin back soon to slay the charts! #BOW see unlike Riri. BEY has longevity!

    Happy Birthday Rihanna…your performance tonight was boring. I like your album LOUD but you’re not very good at live performances. Also, Drake is not the crowd pleaser you may think he is so…leave him at home next time ok? Have a happy birthday.

    It’s incomprehensible as to why people ALWAYS criticize rihanna of her vocals. Every musician has different sounds and voices and not all of them have strong or big voices. She is a great performer and she rocked it!! Go Riri! Rihannanavy will always back you up!!!!!!

  12. jayjayjj50

    At least for tonight we cant get a rihanna for the vocals. The vocals were bad for everyone. The volume was way to low for all performers. Sound guy should get fire.

    Absolutely epic performance and RiRi looked stunning, now I gotta find me some of those pants Kanye was wearing, lol.

    She sounded good to me, but then again I don’t pride myself in throwing biased shade at an artist all because I don’t like them, shrugs!

  19. tom thumb

    Can someone please explain to me what was so stiff bout her performance cuz I’m not seein it…

    And for a girl who should ” lip-sync” she sure souinded good @ the grammys…some people really need to be serious wit themselves…smh

    Well one thing I do notice with her performances is that unlike beyonce she looks like she’s actually having fun!

  25. Hioki

    I’m not sure what’s more disturbing: Kanye’s red leather jeggings or the fact that some of you think this was a grade-A performance worthy of praise…but I guess perception only depends on one’s preference

    LMFAOOOOOOO @ pressed haters going from site to site saying the same mess. If she sounds bad, why tune in and listen to her? Why do you keep doing it? I’ll tell you why Because she is a threat to your fave. Because she is the “it girl”. She has taken over quietly and still racking up hits, #1s, appearances, and media attention. Your fave is where tonight. Benchwarming, that’s where. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Rihanna doesn’t have to sing like Jennifer Hudson. Rihanna only has to show up to events these days. If you look at the big picture, the industry is not concerned with her singing, they want a hitmaker headlining, appearing, and that draws in the masses. If you don’t believe that, ask yourselves how many haters contributed to Rihanna’s ratings tonight? I mean her reign, tonight. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ***Whistling Hate On Me***

    her performances are getting better, before she would never dance around like this but she’s improving. i’m a fan of her music but she needs to at least dress properly, their were children and families in the crowd and she was shaking her butt and flaunting herself. thats the difference between her and beyonce, bey know’s the boundaries and rihanna doesn’t. hence why thousands of people in the UK complained about her raunchy performance on X-factor. because she doesn’t cover up.

    [Reply]

    meme Reply:

    @p, I gatta admit that outfit at the x factor was risque…but beyonce is no different. beyonce wore panties every single time she performed single ladies (ellen, tyra, 106, AMA’s, SNL etc) just go on youtube and see. I mean beyonce classes it up for some appearances but so do rihanna. N the end they have different style, riri is more of a bad ass so of course she is going to be more raunchy than bey

    Rihanna killed that performance last night , she doesn’t need any vocal or dance classes because 1) If you ppl would read you would know that she’s been sick since the grammy’s & both times she sounded really good. I admit that some note on What’s My Name could have been better but she did a damn good job on singin those songs throughout the night. The only reason why she wasn’t dancing as hard as she normally would is because she didn’t want to get winded. Now to be able to compete w/ Beyonce we all know she would have to learn how to sing & dance at the same time but even Beyonce gets winded (Which is why she always just screams out hey & other shit while she’s performing) But Rihanna is on a whole other level w/ her music & she is just as talented as Beyonce. I like Beyonce but as an artist I prefer Rihanna. :)

  34. Kenda

    LMFAO @ RIHANNA STANS THINKING THIS SHIT WAS GOOD… RIHANNA IS A “PROFESSIONAL” AND IN 5 YEARS IS STILL SHOWING NO REAL SIGNS OF HER HAVING ANYTHING MORE TO OFFER THAN LACKLUSTER. BEYONCE IS ON A WHOLE OTHER PLANET ONE RIHANNA WILL NEVER SEE. AND NO VOICE OR DANCE LESSONS COULD HELP HER EITHER, YOU EITHER HAVE IT OR YOU DON’T. RIHANNA IS NOTHING MORE THAN SEXED UP OVERHYPE AND DAMN NEAR PROVES IT WITH EVERY PERFORMANCE. IT IS NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR AN ARTIST TO SOUND LIKE THEY DO ON THE RECORDS THEY SELL (AND I’M NOT JUST SPEAKING OF THIS PERFORMANCE BUT THE MAJORITY)!!!
