Her name is spelled incorrectly. She looks cute. Keep the money coming Rihanna.

# 5

Where’d all the money go?
Ho can’t save for ****.

That’s all she made? I would have guessed alot more. That kid Miley Cyrus made like 30 mil for 2008, no? I mean they both have zero talent and really aren’t deserving. I would have guessed alot more for her.
Don’t get me wrong that is a lot of money, but I would have guessed more. She was a freaking plague in 07-08. She’s a terrible, TERRIBLE entertainer though.

and the record company gets 30%!

Now what the hell is going on in the back of this chick’s head!

Miley makes money from her movie and all the endorsements and all those licensing deals. Rihanna just does the music. It makes sense. Miley’s also got a broader fan base.

They should also list how much she paid for production/mgmt/costs etc..That will tell you if she’s actually pocketing any money.

Ex. Toni Braxton and husband Keri Lewis have been hit with lien documents by the state of California, and are accused of owing $79,315 in back taxes. Braxton filed for bankruptcy protection in 1998, owing over $1 million, despite having sold over 15 million albums worldwide, grossing well over $170 million.

Ugly outfit and she needs to do something about that **** on her head.

Dont be so paranoid @ 07/28/2009 at 7:11 pm

wow thats awesome and her album came out in 2007 so it must be royalties

She has a very thick neck and high forehead.
The way she’s styling her hair emphasizes her neck and makes her look like a man in drag.

@happybeingme: Plus she pays taxes, managers, pr reps, stylists, etc…It adds up fast and this girl doesn’t have the best deal. There’s a reason so many of the celebs are broke despite making millions off their albums.

What does Rihanna work hard at? Shopping and eating?

Correction: Def Jam made almost 15 mill from this girl and used some of it to promote her on blogs like JJ. She has a very smart label who knew what they were doing when they drew up her contract. If she had truly netted this kind of money, she wouldn’t be dressing like does and living in hotels and rented houses.

She looks like a butch version of Lil Kim.

now rihanna looks really good here, from head to toe, keep your head up sweet heart, now, how do you people know how she spends/handle her money? she have not told us anything, jealousy makes you stupid, you just say anything, go ri !!!



Rihanna looks like a dude wearing a toga.
She is supposed to be a pop princess but dresses like a drag queen.
Time for a new stylist.

This GORGEOUS!!!! woman is such a TREND SETTER!!!! Luv her style!!!!

She is not pretty. Her eyes are insanely gorgeous though.

Damn! That is one ugly man!

BEAUTIFUL! @ 07/28/2009 at 7:40 pm

Beautiful Girl!
