Rihanna: Barbados Arrival, New Album Details!

Rihanna returns to her homeland via Barbados airport on Wednesday (June 16).

Earlier in the week at the Staples Center, the 22-year-old “Rockstar” singer and Travis Barker joined Eminem on stage for their “Love the Way You Lie” collaboration.

Vice President of Def Jam Bu Thiam shared a little about Rihanna‘s upcoming album. He told Vibe, “I’m trying to push her to where every song will be a hit from 1 to 12. I’m talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson’s Thriller. We got smashes from Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City. We’re definitely going in with Ne-Yo, The-Dream and other writers and producers that have always been a part of her creative process since day one.”

FYI: Rihanna is wearing Betsey Johnson sunglasses, available at Nordstrom!

LMFAO at the bar being Thriller. Keep dreaming.

# 2

Keep dreaming is right. She’s no Michael. She can’t sing or dance.

And seriously how can we MISS any of these people if they NEVER GO AWAY!!! This includes Beyonce!! After this album Rhianna needs to go away for a LONG TIME. Sheesh what is it with celebs nowadays, so much over-exposure!! Then they wonder why they face backlash..have they never heard that less is more sometimes!!

# 3

ugly chick.

# 4

Great skin but she needs a new stylist.

# 5

I love Rihanna and all but dont lie dude… She has never made an album with all hits and never will. And to compare it to MJ! OH PLEASE STOP!!

# 6

I sort of like Rihanna’s outfit but her hair just doesn’t work.

# 7

I hate it when labels are like ” get ready, her new album’s gonna be as epic as Michael Jackson’s Thriller album “.
It’s getting annoying.
Michael Jackson is the one and the only one.
His album is the best selling record for a reason : the guy worked real hard on his albums. And he didn’t fel the need to release an album every year.
Nowadays I feel like labels are milking their artists to death : Lady GaGa, Rihanna and even Britney Spears. That’s sad.

# 8

Sometimes she looks like Michael Jackson.
That’s the closest to Thriller she’ll get.

# 9

What bothers me is the fact that it’s all bout making hits! I think because nothing is really selling that well now, it makes labels think everything has to be a hit. Where’s the art?

That hair is just god awful…seriously ..she needs to stop doing w/e the
f-uck she’s doing to it
1.it’s not cute
2.she’ll be bald in no time

“the 22-year-old ‘Rockstar’ singer”

and 3 she does not sing rock…SHE’S NOT A ROCKSTAR!!

love her so much! stuning

no one was checking for rihannas album cuz no one checked on rated r! and CHECKED OUT of her fan base after that. shes definitely fallen off ppl radar with her latest effort, that statement was simply a ploy to get ppl interested and talking.., but after delivering RR, statements such as that with rihannas name in it no longer will get ppl interested, but get them to laugh, b/c we know better and shes given us ample opportunities to see she has no talent.

Love her necklaces but she really does look like a dude.

Love her necklaces but she really does look like a dude.

@Donovan: ITA – this one does not make art. She’s just a cute face they prance around to make”hits.” She’ll be discarded in a few years for the next cute face.

Those shoes are fierce but this girl really does dress like a clown.
