    JJ, way too much Rihanna. Mix it up a little and stop posting the same stars over and over.

  • mac

    Maybe she shares the same makeup artist with the late Elvis Presley? She’s getting the same wax face as 70′s Elvis.

  • berry

    Damn! I thought that was Prince!

  • Fox

    Jesus Christ, what did she do to her hair????

  • pixie

    Rihanna looks ridiculous but I heart her lip color

  • dawg

    Will she really dance this time? I hope it’s not a repeat of her VMA performance!

  • eww

    She’s fugly!! She looks like a dude! She always does the SAME thing, and her voice is annoying. She always looks lazy and never has any energy. Booo! She is so boring! Her time clock is t-i-c-k-i-n-g!

  • WTF

    WTF is with her face in photo 6? She looks drugged out.

  • Dulce

    Classic DSL!

    Rihanna’s gotta stop releasing singles from the same album. We need new material!!

  • lexy

    She is boring the hell out of me…

  • Get Your Ex Back

    Lets hope she don’t pass out!





  • Tasha

    she’s pretty
    she can’t sing

  • Pop

    i don’t like her music. it’s catchy at times but nothing special.

  • weezer

    If Prince and Joan Crawford bumped uglies, Rihanna would be their love child.

  • nicole

  • jocipa

    uh… i liked her when she was normal girl, now she is very ugly and dumb. she dont know sing.

  • blackberry

    …sooo miley cyrus can sing???????

  • Ms. Jordan

    WoW it just ceases to amaze me how some people are so negative. It speaks volumes into who you are as a person. Look within who you are and you will find the problem. Rihanna and Chris Brown are such iconic entertainers it’s just sad that people don’t see that. Keep doing it Chris and Rihanna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Knight

    Lol@best performance of the night. Judging by the rehearsal photos, this is going to be similar to the MTV Awards: Rihanna lip-synching and showing as much rhythm as a twig blowing in the wind.

    Advance kudos to the back-up singers!

  • rhoniluv

    im not the hugest fan of hers, but on the real…her style is whippin the pants of her contemporaries. With her, Lady GaGa, and the like…dolls like Beyonce have been officially put on notice.
    Tired Beauty is ova…Hot Sizzle is here.

  • Pitchajarun

    EWWWW – God I hate Rhianna, she’s hideous. I’d like to see her snicker at Britney now… she’s not even fit to clean Britney’s shoes, When this ugly B!tch goes down, i’m gonna snicker my arse off – just wish it would be caught on TV, just like it did with this less than mediocre, constructed, made by some record company Flash in the Pan that is Rhianna did when Britney was on the VMA’s…. Rhianna’s performance might be practised & whatever, but she will still suck, she will always suck.

  • watching sportscenter

    ur fucking ugly riri
    fuck u bitch

  • love

    Flawless skin YH right underneath that 50 pounds of make-up !!
