Rihanna & Chris Brown Have Essence

Rihanna & Chris Brown Have Essence

Reigning R&B prince Chris Brown and R&B princess Rihanna perform at the Louisiana Superdome during the 2008 Essence Music Festival on Friday, the Fourth of July, in New Orleans.

Here’s Billboard‘s review of dear RiRi‘s latest “Disturbia” single: “Rihanna has scored 10 top 40 hits since her career launched in 2005. More staggering, the 20-year-old has four songs riding the Pop 100: top two ‘Take a Bow,’ Maroon 5 duet ‘If I Never See Your Face Again’ just entering the top 40, ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ inside the top 40 after 30 weeks—and now ‘Disturbia.’ It’s safe to say that Rihanna is the premier artist of the second half of the decade, with no signs of wear and tear. This latest is a sort of ‘Thriller’ for partygoers, with multilayered vocals cascading across Ri‘s lower register, alongside fun scatting, a la ‘bum bum bi dum bum’ with co-writing (and background vocals) from the irrepressible Chris Brown. Rereleased albums with added cuts have become a tedious trend, but ‘Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded’ is actually worth its weight in platinum. In short order, Rihanna has become the trustworthy ‘it’ girl of our time.’

OMG CHRIS SHAVE OFF THE SKUNK HAWK HAIR THINGIEE!!!! YESSSSSSSS!!!! and that third to last pic is totally the business :3 and rihanna……….

# 5

she look a little bit like a man! this hair cut is nice but i hope that Riri returns to her 2006 hair.

# 6

Cute but maybe not her best look

# 7

i meant shaved**

# 8

Rihanna’s hair looks like a hat! I think her darker hair is still under it.

# 9

She’s pretty but she kinda looks like a tranny.

She looks like a 2 dollar hooker.

{{{{{{{ Chris Brown }}}}}}}}}

Gross. All the accessories on the planet can’t give this ***** class!

THEY SURE ARE HANDSOME!

Billboard would give my dog a good review. The dress is not bad but I wish this girl had more talent to back up her looks.

I love the dress. Everything else is EEWWW. HHAAAATTEE IITTTT!!!

i like rihanna but her style is so 80s. she needs to stop copying madonna!

Why the hell is she dressed like an 80′s hooker?

I love short hair but I prefer Rihanna with a slightly longer style. The hair on the sides of her head do not match the top (is that a weave?) plus the style emphasizes her thick neck. Chin length would be a good look for her.

CHRIS IS HOT!!!!!!!

What happened to Rihanna? She used to be unique and now she’s all ******* tranny-ed up.

GROSS. She looks like Fantasia Barrino…

Rihanna looks cute as long as she covers up her huge forehead. She has pretty eyes.

RIHANNA’S STARTING TO LOOK LIKE A BOY.

Both are fierce!!!!!!!!!

Hell to the no@RhiRhi! This is more of a miss than a hit.
