Rihanna's New Album Sounds 'Sassy' -- EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna's New Album Sounds 'Sassy' -- EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna waves to fans before performing to a sold-out crowd on Thursday (August 12) at the world’s most famous arena — NYC’s Madison Square Garden.

It was a proud moment for the 22-year-old Barbadian beauty and her big bro Kanye West, who was in the audience with pal Mr. Hudson.

“So I went to Rihanna’s concert tonight and when I saw her do ‘I’m so hard, eh eh eh,’ I’m not gonna lie to ya’ll, I might have actually started crying,” Kanye told the crowd at his secret NYC show later in the evening. “Just to see my little sister on stage with her production, her outfit, her song and rocking Madison Square Garden at her own sold-out show . It was a very emotional moment for me and I’m just so proud of her.” Touching!

At the Last Girl on Earth after-party held at NYC hotspot Greenhouse, Rihanna told Just Jared how excited she was for her new album and her new look. What will be her new album’s sound? “Strong, fun, and sassy,” she told us exclusively. Now that’s something we need to hear STAT!

In two weeks, Rihanna will be heading to Hawaii to shoot her new movie, Battleship, opposite Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch. According to THR, Universal has set a $200+ million budget for the pic — a huge investment in director Peter Berg.

    Jared I really don’t understand you………..I get that her label pays you, I GET that. But I’m SURE they didn’t tell you to post hourly updates. No way?

    What’s sad is that I actually love/d Rihanna. But the constant posting has become so ridiculous, it’s killed a ton of my adoration for her. No wonder people find her jarrin’ and overexposed now.

    all this album hype for nothing, watch. it’ll be the same type of sound as before, her range is so limited she makes every song sound the same no matter how different the beat or production is. and her tour’s just going to flop again anyway. god i hate hype without substance!

    If she sold out Madison Square Garden that means this girl has FANS! wow, that is a surprise. Or maybe it is just a lack of options for singers/entertainers these days. Either way, performances/tours are where singers make their BIG BUCKS. So she did well.

    Madison Square features 20,000 seats for performances. Just say the tickets cost $200 each. That’s a cool $4,000,000.

    I wonder how much her manager and handlers cost and all the other expenses?

    I’d say she probably ended up with at least $2.5 Million just from that one performance. She has others scheduled.

    Just guessing. All of this popping up on the celebrity web sites
    is really paying off BIG.
