Rihanna is Really Smart, Says Melina Matsoukas

Rihanna stays incognito with a hooded sweater and shades as she arrives at her hotel in Dublin, Ireland on Friday (May 21).

Melina Matsoukas is the director who recently helmed Rihanna‘s “Hard”, “Rude Boy” and “Rockstar 101″ music videos. She recently said in an interview, “She’s definitely really smart with her ideas and creative and she gets it. I think that’s the thing with all of those three. I have very similar taste, so we’re able to collaborate on ideas. And it’s not like a competition or we’re battling each other, and that makes it fun.”

Tomorrow, Rihanna is playing her “Last Girl on Earth” concert at The O2 in Dublin.

    @Lawton: Is she going to be on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of NY?





  • Royal

    Rihanna doesn’t come across as too bright in her interviews. Of course, her director will say she’s smart cause that’s her cash cow.

  • Dani

    Is her hair real or fake?
    She seems to suddenly have a lot more hair.

  • Cathyhi5RiRiHD

  • SayWhat?!
  • mona from Nigeria

    @eightball: You are a jerk, riri is a diva…ha ha ha

  • bajan


  • RedRock

    @mona from Nigeria: Why is that person a jerk? Because they think she needs vocal lessons? That’s probably one of the more constructive and accurate assessments I’ve read here. You’re the one who’s the jerk for calling someone names because they don’t agree with your opinion about your idol.

  • aww

    she looks sweet but worn out.

  • known

    Rihanna is being smart. Yeah her style used to be on point but her album sales were dying so now shes she tryna get your attention again! She knows what shes doing!!!

  • mel

    really? she’s smart eh? she comes off as half retarded anytime i’ve seen her interviewed. and she looks like a ghetto hood rat these days. she used to look quite good. now…not so much.
