Publicist: I Started All The Rihanna/Jay-Z/Beyonce Rumors!

Well isn't this interesting. Known publicist Jonathan Hay is dishing all the goods about how he initially started all the publicity circus around Rihanna with lies and rumors--and it was really all a ploy to put his producer friend on.  Producer friend, of course, happened to have done Rihanna's break out "Pon de Replay" song.  He says in a recent interview he's the cause of all the made up Beyonce/Jay-Z/Rihanna love triangle rumors.  Check it: You are credited for breaking Rihanna out into the media. Can you please go into detail about that? Jonathan Hay: Yes. I met Vada Nobles [the producer of Rihanna's first single, "Pon De Replay"] at a Starbucks in Orlando, Florida. I'll never forget that day. Vada told me about this young artist named Rihanna who looked similar to Beyonce and he'd just finished her first single, called "Pon De Replay." We went back to his home studio where he was working on finishing up the remix for it with Elephant Man. Honestly, the first time I heard the song I didn't think it was going to work at all because Will Smith had a song out ["Switch"] at that time with almost that exact same beat. But I was intrigued by the project, nevertheless. At first, nobody seemed to really feel the song, so I started a publicity campaign, single-handedly. The whole idea behind the campaign was to get Vada Nobles out there as a producer so that ultimately people would forget about his past lawsuit and conflict with Lauryn Hill on her album The Miseducation Of Lauyrn Hill. Jonathan Hay: Anyway, I sent the song to Jennifer Vineyard, my contact at MTV. She did me a favor and broke the story on Rihanna, "Pon De Replay" and Vada Nobles. Along with one of my partners, I then began to fabricate stories of Rihanna and Jay-Z, leaking false rumors to tabloids, working internet message boards, etc. We started to get an insane amount of media coverage very fast. There are so many things we did that people don't even know about, not even Rihanna herself. She was completely unknown and I was paid by Vada Nobles to generate publicity. The mega Island Def Jam deal rumor, we fluffed and fabricated. Rihanna and Vada had no idea what I was doing behind the scenes, but my whole agenda was to get media for the song. Jonathan Hay: If you check out Rihanna's Wikipedia Page for "Pon De Replay." you'll see that it was on March 17, 2005 [through MTV News] that I helped break Rihanna out into the world. There was a lot more involved but I want to save that detailed interesting chapter for the book. What do you mean by starting Rihanna rumors? Jonathan Hay: I mean leaking out sensational stories and spreading them around in the news -- to tabloids such as the National Enquirer, music and gossip sites and whatnot. Like when the rumor surfaced that Jay-Z had a new love life and was cheating on Beyonce...that was just to get attention. Rihanna had nothing to do with ANY of that, nor did she know what we were doing. I was just trying to break the single and stay employed by Vada Nobles. Even Vada didn't know half the stuff I was doing. I kept my strategy a secret at the time because, honestly, everyone would have been against it, the tactics that I used. But I was only thinking about the end result - and look what happened...gossip sells. So you started that Jay-Z, Rihanna and Beyonce rumor? Jonathan Hay: I feel awful but, yes, I leaked some of those stories. Looking back, I am ashamed of that; there was zero integrity in that maneuver. But this is entertainment and I wanted to obtain publicity - so I came up with some crazy stories and it worked. Rihanna is one of the biggest stars in the world now, and look at how she stormed into the business! Not to take anything from her - she is a great artist - but every artist needs a launching pad and there is nothing better than a good scandal to get the public's attention. (Laughing) More on this dish when you read the rest... You began talking to Jay-Z from your association with Amil [from Roc-A-Fella Records]... Jonathan Hay: I already had his contact info, but once I started working with Amil it gave me a reason to contact him... Have you talked to Jay-Z since the Rihanna rumors? Jonathan Hay: Jay-Z and I had a dramatic-instant involving another artist. That is just water under the bridge now, but it's definitely going in the book. I still talk to Jay-Z every now and then -- I probably nag him (laughing) but he always hits me back. Trust me, my Jay-Z chapter is really an eye-opener. He is the greatest businessman in the history of hip-hop. Jay-Z has succeeded in every business possibility, all across the board. I plan on hopefully sitting down with Jay-Z very soon for some lucrative business opportunities. He also speaks about--in this ridiculously long ass interview--about writing songs for your favorite rap artists and singers.  And starting publicity stunts for them too.  Either somebody needs to ut down the Lawry's or dude's story is the whole truuth and nothing but the truth.  Either way--are we really surprised?

[quote comment="309837"]Rihanna still sucked and nobody was checking for her even when the rumors were going around. She changed her entire image and sound to appeal to the majority -- white teenage girls and a few black teenage girls. LOL Nobody gave a fuck about "Pon De Replay" or anything else. That just goes to show she has no talent. Rumors had to be started and things were made up so she would get some type of recognition. I know Def Jam lost money off of her first two albums because they were wack as hell, but they're working her ass like a slave now. Especially since they threw the best songwriters/producers on the third album. SMH I don't know if this man is telling the truth or not. Either way, it just goes to show Rihanna is famous for nothing and we still don't know who this man is so he obviously didn't do a good enough job of "spreading rumors".[/quote] hi hater!!! you mad arent you??? lmao its ok she don't know you and i'm pretty sure she don't want to know you so go ahead and breath and get off that haterade cause it seems like your ass overdosed off that shit today!! get that paper Ri Ri

Foolishness at its finest!

Foolishness at its finest! You will never convince me this Rihanna didn’t know what was going on. They tried to package her as a MiniBeyonce and then when that didn’t get them results they wanted they jacked Fefe Dobson’s “image” and put these rumors out there. She played right into them. She was making backhanded comments in interviews, throwing up the Roc sign in concerts. WTF! She ain’t on that label so why was she repping Jay? They made that rumor up and she knew it but they don’t want her to look bad. rotf Well its to late the trick has already been exposed. I find it hilarious how now that Beyonce is back out and blowing everyone away with her TALENT, he they come with this B.S. Ain’t nobody talking about Riri other than what a mess she sounds live and how boring she is. Yeah, I went there and don’t give a dayum. I’m sick of this b*tch's name being attached to Beyonce and people acting like Beyonce fans owe Riri something when we don’t owe her shyt!

Jay-z and Beyonce will never

Jay-z and Beyonce will never have kids together because she is to selfish for it. So, I honestly don't think she is so in love with him. She is playing with him because she has nothing to loose. I feel bad for Jay-z that he is still together with this faker.

For argument's sake (since you compared Bey and AK before), if Alicia released a new album this year, I think her sales would be 150,000-200,000 lower than last year putting her in the same league as Bey's new album. Unless you have serious hype/anticipation around your album, your sales in the first week won't be all that great. Almost ever R&B or Hip Hop album released this year had less than 600,000 records sold in its first week. The only exception being Lil Wayne (whom was one of those people who had alot of hype and anticipation surrounding his album).

However, Beyonce's B'Day album DID NOT sell more than Alicia's As I Am album. And AK's label re-released her album (she's not even promoting it like Bey and Rihanna did their re-releases) and it's only being released in certain countries (unlike Bey who re-released hers everywhere). And if you wanna talk OVERALL SALES, Alicia's 3 studio albums surpass Bey's 2 albums by AT LEAST 10 million. I think it's safe to say Bey won't be passing her with this new album, either. Also, Beyonce's tours WERE NOT selling out in minutes last year. Hell, some tour dates didn't even sell out. Alicia sung to a SOLD OUT ARENA every show and got better reviews than Beyonce did, also. I guarantee you she had the #1 R&B tour of '08. Sidebar: I stan for Alicia, but I like Beyonce, too. I previewed I Am...Sasha Fierce and am waiting for my fiance to buy the Deluxe Edition for me because that bish did her thang (yes, thang because it's that serious LOL) on this one. So, no I'm not hating on Bey, just stating facts. However, they are both in different genres and leagues. Bey can't do what AK does and AK can't do what Bey does. These ladies can co-exist without being compared and you also don't have to down or diminish what Alicia's accomplished just to big up Bey's accomplishments. They're both successful, talented, beautiful, black women representing us well in the media and the industry so let's celebrate them both.

Observation # 1: Like some reasonable human being in here said (can't bother to scroll back up to find out who) Rihanna and Jay-Z always vociferously denied that rumour and were never caught out the way Diddy and Cassie have been for instance. The rumour always smacked of being false. Observation #2: It's funny how Beyonce stans/ Rihanna anti-stans always slam Rihanna's style by saying 'oh someone else dressed her'. Yet, it is funny that Beyonce no doubt also has a stylist and always looked like she dressed herself... in the dark... so she just reaches for the brightest, shiniest object she can spot. Y'all make me tired. Grown women hating on a young girl with such venom.[/quote] I agree, it makes no sense!! I mean, there is a roon for every one Beyonce is good but not that great Rihann is ok but not that bad! I ve seen somme rihanna show and she is definitely not thatbad! Ive seen some show from Beyonce and she is not that great! Damn, som people are so used to mediocrity that they would be blown away by anything!! Oh and rihanna is stealing people style, ok lets say im ok with that even if im not! Beyonce is stealing people songs and not giving credit to people for it? She s been caught stealing ideas from britney, janet, JLO etc... Which one is worst! I think both of them are wack but there is a room for everybody!!!!

Even if the story is false,

Even if the story is false, it doesnt make any less true that Rihanna is just an image built on buzz. Yes she gorgeous and she dresses great but that is all that girl can offer. Cant sing, cant write, cant dance, cant perform, etc.

A big whoop-de-do ... Like we

A big whoop-de-do ... Like we already don't know what some journalists will do to help a launch a person's career and even some cases it's the celebrity themselves that will feed the rumor to the public anyways

[quote comment="310121"]WOW.Is this what Rihanna's camp has to resort to get attention for her?!? I'm not surprised at all,considering how Rihanna LOVES to bring that rumor a lot in her interviews, i won't be surprised if she's on it too.it's a damn shame that's what her camp had to resort to,by tarnishing beyonce and jay-z names for publicity stunts.God doesn't like ugly[/quote] a prime example lol
