Nightcap: Rihanna, You Still Need More People.

Source: Ultimate-rihanna.com
So Rihanna's is Allure's January 2008 covergirl and she's clearing up the rumors about what she did...and didn't do with Josh Hartnett, her borderline friendship with Beyonce, and her hair: On her rumored boyfriend Josh Hartnett:
“This is what really happened …. He and my management, they have each other’s contact information. I went to (the New York club) Pink Elephant, and he came by. All of a sudden, the next day, I’m seeing that we were kissing and hugging up each other. You can’t even go out with a friend who’s a celebrity and have a good time without people making (bleep) up … Well, at least he’s good-looking, right?”
Mmhmm. Or maybe you found out about his long term girlfriend when he talked about her on national tv following y'alls make out session and you felt salty? Either way...good clear up. On her hair:
“The label didn’t want me to do this look … But cutting my hair, it made me stand out as an artist. I don’t care who likes it — this is me.”


On her skin color issues:
On being bullied at school for being too 'white': "I was a little confused as a kid because I grew up with my mum, and my mum is black. So I was cultured in a very 'black' way. But when I go to school, I'm getting called 'white'. They would look at me and would curse me out. I didn't understand. I just knew I saw people of all different shades and I was light. Now I'm in a much bigger world."


On Beyonce:
“She’s Beyonce, and I’m (his) new protegee. When we see each other we say hi. We’re not enemies, but we’re not `friends’ friends.”
After hearing these same quotes 100+ times from Rih Rih, I can't say I'm really caring anymore.  More pics: I will still continue to beg this chick to cop a modeling contract and save my ears.

Lord have mercy, leave the girl alone. She's still developing, for Christ's sake!! I'm neither for or against Ri, but I know unless you know the girl personally, you really can't comment on this contrived controversey and all this made up madness. We only know what the media tries to report to us with all their propaganda. How does anyone know what really goes on?

I don't really care for

I don't really care for Rihanna...she's not that talented in my book. She's trendy - not a real singer. But then, most performers nowadays aren't singers, are they?

[quote comment="21074"]Rhi Rhi's comment about Bey is catty,she needn't answer the question if she has nothing nice to say, you have a lot to learn in the industry or u will never last.Claiming Josh H as a boyfriend to the paps because he squeezed and groped you the previous night,is one of the foot in mouth ways of this no talent poser.Oh! and Jay Z is never going to leave Bey for you.Bey is the take home to mama, you are merely a jump off who he puts to work to get richer so he can treat Bey.Protegee must mean jump off in Bajan.[/quote] How is it catty? She simply said she is neither a friend or an enemy. What makes you think Rhi wants JayZ or is asking for him to leave Beyonce? You people take the cake. White people can have fifty different girls hit up the jackpot in entertainment and you never heard these ignorant hating comments. Black people, try to get it in your heads that it is possible for two black entertainers to enjoy enormous support from various people. Bey must feel embarrassed the way you all beat up on a teenager. As a woman of almost thirty, she must find that really tired.

When Rihanna first came onto

When Rihanna first came onto the scene with "pon de replay" Vibe magazine did a small feature on her in like the up and coming section or something. During that interview she said that Beyonce was her idol and that she was so nervous meeting her, and that when she met Beyonce, B gave her good advice about the biz. Funny how all that as changed. Truthfully Rihanna blew up this year for stepping up her style game and being one of the top ybf chicks of '07... but talent wise? Beyonce can sing AND dance circles around you young lady so sit it down! I agree with what Natasha has said time and time again, baby girl needs a modeling contract.

Who cares if she can sing

Who cares if she can sing when she has the face and body of a Goddess.. since most of you Americans are fat I say take a knee, and not because that the Knuckles is trying to get some head.. but simple because that you should respect and be humble in the presence of royalty.

[quote comment="21051"]I know it's been a long time since you've heard from the Houston Girl, but i just had to comment on the Rihanna issue w/B! Just wanted to clarify that Rhianna is no comparison and will never be to Beyonce! B is a H-Town chick and let me just say we show up and show out! That's why B never comments on Rih because you don't sweat the small things when you know you're a Giant. I mean come on guys, she's Jay's protege like she say, so basically most of proceeds go to Beyonce, she most likely paid for that Bentley she received last year from Jay, if you wanna get real about the situation! (Ha)[/quote] Girl get over yourself Beyonce is not God, she probably doesn't talk about Rihanna because the media doesn't ask her about the girl like they are always asking Ri about Be. It's called an interview someone ask you a question and you respond, and another thing yall kill me hatin on this girl, publications edit for content so you'll never know all that is said, but as usual dumba$$es can't comprehend so they twist words around. Oh and both Ri and Be are lightskinned they just stayed tanned and airbrushed the hell up.

I think Rihanna is talented

I think Rihanna is talented and the reason she stands out is because she brings something new and refreshing to the game. You CAN'T say that she reminds you of some other female singer.

Poor Rih Rih, she can't even

Poor Rih Rih, she can't even answer a question before the Beyonce police start butalising her. Isn't Beyonce supposed to be fly, good-looking, a great dresser. and a superb entertainter? Why does everyone start defendning her and critisizing anyone who doesn't praise her. Can't she stand on her own talent?? What is your problem? Leave the teenager alone!

[quote comment="20770"]Rihanna looks good! Why is she talking about cutting her hair when she's been wearing weaves and wigs the whole time!SMH The whole GGGB hair has been wigs!LOL[/quote] I was thinking the SAME thing....my friend saw her in person a long time ago, and she was telling me Rihanna was ducking the press, probably because at the time, her hair was in a "barely there" ponytail. She didn't CUT it, it was already short! LOL. I wish folk would just be honest.

I do believe J was having an affair with her & liking her 2 regardless, & I do believe B was aware of this.If you ask me Ring the alarm & many other song's steamed from their affair. Let's keep in mind that a man will be a man regardless of who you are & guy's from Bk are all about status (HOTTEST CHICK IN THE GAME). Anyway, Ri live your life!You are real & sexy .Plus any chick from anywhere can relate to you. You are more real then B will ever be we don't live in a perfect world & when people begin to realize what may appear real is not always real we will be alot better.

[quote comment="20829"]She loves having her name out in the spot light and she keeps doing this ish by mentioning Bee and Jay. She got one major single that got some buzz and her head has swollen to its maxium. Lets keep it real if Jay-z and Chris Brown wasn't on the remix it wouldn't have gotten this much exposure. I am sick of this girl someone need to bust her in her mouth cause all that lip flapping is uncall for. And she use the word protege for more controversary trick please u are an artist on Def Jam just like everyone else.[/quote] are you really serious about physical violence?? why... she's being interviewed and answering questions. how old are you??

Why do some people say

Why do some people say Rihanna can't sing? I don't agree with their opinion.

Rhianna has brought something

Rhianna has brought something different to the table and she brought it well. I don't know about you guys but, Beyonce is nice and everything but I got tired of hearing her voice. Rhianna has a different type of flava. I love her I buy her Cds. I basically support her. Hopefully some more west indians can follow in her footsteps and make us all proud.

The fact that people keep

The fact that people keep pushing this rumor that Jay-Z had sex with Rihanna disturbs me. First of all, Jay-Z is in a committed relationship. Secondly, he is 2x Rihanna's age.

Rihanna is doing big things,

Rihanna is doing big things, but I hate the way they sex her up althe time. She's only 19, but she be out there. Has anyone seen the pics of her (they're about 2 months old), in the club grabbing on some girls boobs? It's on egotasic, but I don't know how to post links. Anyway, the girl is turned out! As for that statement about Beyonce, I can feel the tension.

The cuts are similar, but I prefer this one because it's symetrical all the way around, a "bob" I guess. Either way their both nice.

Why are you comparing them in

Why are you comparing them in the first place? This whole comment post is a bunch of naysayers making something out of nothing! This article offered more than just her answering a questions she answered a couple thousands times before! Ladies these are two successful black women. We shouldnt be harping on if they have beef or not! I mean we have more things to focus on than that as black women! YBF you should know that this girl has been hammered with that question...thought you would have read before the lines more in a more journalistic manner! Gabby may have had some truth in what she was saying!

I give her props for not

I give her props for not being all on the Beyonce wagon and trying to make it something it is not. She’s like: look we don’t hang out, we don’t talk, we’re passing acquaintances. I feel her. I just love her style, whoever her stylist has it hands down. She makes grown women want to step it up

Rihanna is a better artist

Rihanna is a better artist than beyonce in my opinion. I think people just need someone to hate on and they picking Rihanna.

^^ I agree! They don't ask

^^ I agree! They don't ask Beyonce about Rihanna, but I can't think of an interview that Rihanna has done that she hasn't brought Beyonce's name up. Heck, when her album was released in the UK, they even had Beyonce's name on a sticker on the CD!SMH I guess it's helping her.

I am slightly confused as to

I am slightly confused as to why Rihanna thinks she is 'light-skinned' just how Beyonce confuses me when she insists that she is 'light-skinned' as well. I have never seen either of the two in person, but both of them look cafe con leche/cafe au lait brown to me. The so-called lightness is attributed to the flash of the camera and the reflection from their make-up, b/c sometimes they're light and other times they're not.

I am a fan of Rihanna and I

I am a fan of Rihanna and I dont care if she can sing or not. the gurl still got it. I like her music and I like her style. This beyonce and rihanna tension is whack. I do not think that either one of them feel threatened by the other. the media is hyping up something that is not there. I can agree with her on being a light skinned black woman. Rihanna seems like someone who you can relate to.
