    She is out every night.

    Rihanna was in Los Angeles on Sunday…Isn’t MTV filmed in New York?
    Sounds like it was planned in advance if she’s jetting back and forth between coasts.

  • [marie]

    Her voice is very nasal and I haven’t heard anything from that album yet that would make me want to buy it…

  • enoughalready

    This is talent? Why does he keep trying to put this girl in someones face. Instead of pushing her in it he should be making her learn how to do it.. Not good at all vocals and that’s what people were waiting on?

  • incognito

    It sounds more like screaming than singing.

  • Villa

    Rihanna doesn’t sound very good live.

  • rabbit

    That’s not much of a song — just Rihanna singing “yeah, yeah, yeah” and “so hard…”

  • maison martin margiela

    Beautiful performance. This album is going to be huge.

  • Jai

    Not a good surprise.
    All that screeching.
    The poor audience.

  • Hannah

    Are there any other songs released. I’ve heard three so far and none of them are very good.

    What about guest singers? Isn’t she collaborating with other artists on the CD?

  • TC

    I just hear a bunch of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Not a lot of lyrics to this song?

  • Movie Watcher

    No surprise.
    Rihanna never sounds good live.

  • LeviKlein

    I did try to listen to “Hard” but I couldn’t pass the first 30 sec. Her voice is horrible.
    The part with Jay-Z was relatively ok, but I have to agree with “enoughalready”: they should stop shoving Rihanna’s talenless face down people’s throats.
    And please. This hair needs to stop. It’s one thing to be an individual and edgy and stuff, but that woman can’t live up to it.

  • cool spotter

    I think Rihanna is overexposed. She should have kept a lower profile before promoting her album. It’s like we see her every day.

  • enoughalready

    @Cool Spotter, I think that’s the problem, we never really got a break from her. She was out doing all kinds of Role Modeling stuff (showing her tits, showing her flat but and taking in that prostitute class every day(walking the streets). There was never a break, partying, trying to outshine everyone the list goes on and on. But did you ever once see her extending a helping hand to anyone in need? she did not have to go to a shelter, but the helping hand was just never there after all the other role modeling assignments she was doing!

    I guess Just Jared is where Rihanna haters come to converse and vent…

  • Pete

    @Septembre: It’s nice to see a site that actually recognizes her lack of talent. It’s a shame more talented artists get neglected for this girl though. You see very little coverage of anyone beyond Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga here.

  • Jay

    she sucks!!

  • http://www.firemendating.com/ Kelly Love

    Wow, that is awesome. Good hype!

  • irene

    Having been to a few Rihanna concerts, I can attest that she really doesn’t sound great live.

  • lololol

    Who killed the cat?

  • Simon

    I’ll give them credit. The song is appropriately named.
    It is “Hard” to listen to it.

  • GROSS

    GROSS.

  • GROSS

    THE TRANNY BUTCHERED HER OWN SONG.

  • Whoever

    Is she a rapper now?

  • precious

    Not much she can do about her vocals, but she really needs to do something with her hair.

  • lolo

    gosh she can’t sing! horrible to hear sorry it’s not very good

  • **JAMIE**

    i like her

  • xxx

    Wow, what a shock. Even MORE publicity for herself since her album is coming out soon.

    And I agree with everyone, she sounds like absolute crap. No talent.

  • anon

    Yes, how dare Rihanna publicize her new album. What is she trying to be a professional artist or something? The song is a huge hit and she sounds exactly as she does on the radio, so haters just stop. She is one of the most successful artists of the decade, so gtfo.

  • Little Baby

    I like her. The album will be big. No, she’s not a beautiful singer, but she has a uniqueness to her sound. Good or bad, it sells.

  • matt

    @anon: She’s been publicizing herself for almost a year now. Nice to see she’s finally doing some work.

  • Rbecca

    @enoughalready: Really now? LMAO. She helped save Jasmina, the little girl. She moved on from Chris to help girls know domestic abuse is bad and they should leave, too. Why would you want to even waste your dear time if you don’t like Rihanna so much, typing shit about her? ‘Cause you just wanna talk stuff that isn’t true. Who doesn’t club that is at the age where they can? And what about Miley Cyrus? Her ass is on the streets every day. -___- Fuuuck that. Has she ever helped anyone? -shakes my head- There’s a photo of her walking by a bum and she isn’t even looking at him. Anyone else seen that? JUST SAYING. She’s my example. Don’t talk shit about RiRi. Go to her websie and read about EVERYTHING she DOES do + just how SUCCESSFUL she is.

    & To everyone else- Her voice is AMAZING. Her new CD Rated R is going to be a huge hit, wait and see. No one sounds perfect live.

  • YO BOSS… BITCH
