    @Realist, your so stupid. She is black in the eyes of the media. IF she killed someone tomorrow they would say ‘Rihana, who is of basian descent …’ you get the message. Basically us black need to stick together f**k all this segregation. You don’t see white people segregating.

    Realist Reply:

    @chocolateboi, if white people weren’t segregating how the fuck would she be half irish. she’s not black and her ethnicity is west indian.

    @Realist, lol i see you don’t know the difference between race and ethnicity…..race is white, black, asian, or native indian….ethnicity would be african american, Jamaican(myself), Puerto Rican, French, etc…….LALa is a good example, she is racially black but ethnically she is Puerto Rican

    @DenimJunkieKidd, umm No…if she was 100% Puerto Rican, then her race would be Hispanic, not Black/African American…u just skipped out on the whole hispanic race huh, lol

    @Realist, fool go learn about the differences in race, ethnicity, and nationality.

    Rihanna’s race is BLACK. Her ethnicity is WEST INDIAN. Rihanna’s nationality is BARBADIAN.

    So how easy that was…?

    @say what, must’ve not been that easy b/c u straight up just fukked up the name of her nationality…

    @Realist,

    You’re an idiot because if you were West Indian you’d know that Rihanna is half Guyanese and half Bajan. As far as her ancestry goes her dad is a mulatto. She’s NOT Irish. Her nationality is Bajan. She is 100000% West Indian/Caribbean.

    @Realist, i hate this…Rihanna is BLACK…she is not African-American because she’s not American, but she is BLACK…the two terms are not the same…and you said you’re from the Caribbean??? umm bye

    Her RACE is BLACK, her NATIONALITY is BAJAN (or Barbadian), and i could be wrong but i think her parents are from Guyana (not sure) but if that is the case then her ETHNICITY is GUYANESE

    btw not all West Indians are black, but Rihanna is

    rihanna is black. what you’re running your mouth about is called her ETHNICITY, which has nothing to do with race.

    get educated and then you can open that fuckhole you call a mouth.

    @cass, Rihanna is relevant because of her “IDGAF stunts”. Her music? Aye ok. I like her, though. Bey is a legend to many. She may not have any music out but people damn sure request Bey over any female artist like she does.

    Oprah is surely going to ask her about Chris so y’all can prepare yourselves for another profanity-laced Twiter rant.

    Ursula Reply:

    @Yasmine, Uhh, how about …she’s gonna ask her about the millions of singles she’s sold, her 11 number ones, and 5 Grammys all while being under the age of 25. Oprah will also probably talk about how Rihanna put RocaFella and Jay-Z’s old ass back on the map. After Rih came out, he took his tired ass out of “retirement.” Surely she has been a savior for this whole music industry.

    I know everyone is tired of Oprah and the Media asking the same questions. What’s done is done, and you can’t take it back. I just wish they would leave them the hell alone. We all know what Chris did was wrong.. NO man should put their hands on a woman. If you feel like you have to.. Leave. Like he said alot of men can learn from his mistake. It seems like Chris did. I feel bad for Rihanna though. She has to re-live that shit again… All it takes is a couple of questions. I hope people can stop with the jokes cause that shit is not funny.. Some women die from that. Anyways, I PRAY Oprah sticks to questions about Rih’s success and not her past mistakes.

    @cass, Co – Sign. I already know this interview is gonna be about Chris and Rihanna. Oprah isn’t here to ask anything else. Sad really. Rihanna has accomplished alot but what do people wanna talk about? something that happened 3 years ago.SMD.
    I wish we could talk about the music and not this non-existent relationship.The media havn’t moved on as they are still making money off it.
    Chris and Rih have moved on. I wish everyone else could cause its getting real old.
    Let people live there lives in peace.

    All these lame ass comments make me laugh!
    People wonder if or why Oprah would ask her about Chris???

    BECAUSE NOTHING ELSE HAPPENED IN HER LIFE.
    SHE IS THE BLUEPRINT OF A MEDIA HYPED GIRL TOO YOUNG TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO HER WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS.
    SHE DOES DRUGS,
    SHE HAS PRACTICALLY NO EDUCATION,
    NO LIFE OUTSIDE OF HER ‘JOB’
    AND PRETTY BORING!

    @MusicJunkie, THANK YOU! she’s a gimmick and its because or artists like this real lyrical content is no longer present. I myself as a musician am tired of seeing these artist spewing irrelevamce out there and being praised for it. what happened to lyrics we could relate to. Artists with distinct differences becoming a melting pot of words touching hearts with their simple reality. I’m a poet and a songwriter as well and I think hollywood needs a serious reevalution because todays youth will never understand what real talent is.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love West and Bee, however, when it comes to INTERNATIONAL, Rihanna is wayyyyy bigger than they are and why? Because she is POP and manage to be very versatile with her music and reinvents herself. Then 5 Grammy’s and 11 #1′s it’s just U.S.A
    Outside of U.S. she’s even bigger, like in U.K. She’s probably the biggest pop star there is there and Europe as well. Don’t sleep on Rihanna people, she’s just 24 and I believe she’s just getting started, we haven’t seen anything just yet. Like the media is saying, she’s on her way to become the black Madonna, and that is HUGE.

    @bitch, you know that Beyonce has been on the industry well over a decade, right? not to mentioned, she came from a fanbased already from where DC was, where Rihanna has been less than 7 years, yet look at where she’s at. They are totally different, but when it comes to FAME, Rihanna is bigger. Beyonce only beats her in the States, that is it. Other than that, Rihanna sells more records WW, has manage to place more #1 hits singles WW, etc.
    Not saying that Beyonce is a bad artist, or anything, but hey, Rihanna has accomplish sooo muchhh in such of little time without coming from an actual “group” and not to mention, like I said, media keep comparing Riri to Madonna, and why? because she’s Pop, as far as Beyonce, she isn’t that pop, she is more of an R&Bish.
