Yo. Her vocals are the best

Yo. Her vocals are the best I've heard from her. Somewhere in the break down I was like "Bey?" but then I caught a quick howl and I was like "oh Rih." I go hard on saying Rihanna howls and she sang her little heart out on this one. So props where props are due-- go Rih! Now, if only we could get you to do something charitable for a change... I'm just sayin'

Shes a bad influence on young

Shes a bad influence on young kids and females. That cover is very crazy.. and the song is soooo "mentally disturbing". You people are giving power and more control to people who dont even do anything good to influence the world. She is trying to have people reaction. More conroversy means more power. STOP CARING AND MOVE ON. OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE DAMN.

RIHANNA SUCKS: I DON’T KNOW

RIHANNA SUCKS: I DON’T KNOW WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO REAL MUSIC. ARTISTS WITH REAL TALENTED VOICES ARETHA FRANKLIN, ANITA BAKER, GLADY’S KNIGHT AND CHAKA KHAN..I MEAN THERE ARE SOME GREAT ARTISTS TODAY WHO CAN REALLY! REALLY! SING LIKE LEDISI, ADELE, LEELA JAMES AND VV BROWN. BUT NO ONE IS LISTENEING TO THEM. I’M SORRY BUT IF RIHANNA IS TALENTED WHY DOES SHE HAVE TO SELL SEX AND POSE NUDE AND RACY STUFFF ALL THE TIME. THAT IS VERY STUPID I KNOW THE INDUSTRY CAN BE PUSHY BUT SHE IS A ATTENTION SEEKER-NON-TALENTED-HOE-WITHOUT A BRAIN. I REMEBER DIANA ROSS ONCE SAID AT A BET WARDS SHOW “GIRLS YOU DON’T NEED TO SHAKE/WHINE AND WEAR FLASHY TIGHT SEXY OUTFITS TO HAVE LONGIVITY IN THE INDUSTRY” exactly like i said! these performers now do whatever they can do to stay on top, stay relevant. because they are not talented! beyonce is being groomed to become a class act like ms. ross, but she'll never be. wearing balmain & all of these designers doesn't change the fact that your music won't live in forever like diana's etc;

Diana: OMG THE HATERS IN

Diana: OMG THE HATERS IN HERE IS RIDICULOUS …… I FOR ONE LOVE IT, IT SHOWS THE PAIN SHE WENT THROUGH WHEN SHE WAS BATTERED I’M A CARIBBEAN BABY AND REP FOR LL MY PEOPLE SO I’M GONNA SUPPORT HER AND I THINK THE SONG IS NICE I LOVE IT i'm not "hating" hating on rihanna,i love the fact that she is a young black "it girl"- however, i'll never bring myself to say that i love her music because she isn't talented that way. she doesn't write, play an instrument, etc; she's known for her style (that she hasn't even created.) people like nina simone, cat power, laura nyro, etc; are the people that i "love" or celebrate, but that's neither here nor there. i am terribly sorry that the beating happened to her, but that's not going to change my stance on her & her "music"

Been to Hell but Lived to

Been to Hell but Lived to Tell: Dear Def JamI hope your staffers who are undoubtedly reading the blogs to get a feel for the audience’s reception of Rihanna’s new single: Russian Roulettte.I truly hope in your tally and in interpreting the data you collect you DISCOUNT the numerous and repetitive posts made by BEYONCE STANS and Matthew WORLD ENTERTAINMENT PAID BLOGGERS…This song is GREAT, its fresh, unexpected, bold, interesting and a fantastic lead single to generate anticipation for the upcoming album.You all did the math correctly, don’t listen to these PAID BLOGGERS and BEY STANS (sheeple) and rush release a second single, let this song do its magic becuase MAGIC is what it is.Good job. Rihanna, Neyo and the whole team.Kudos! AWWW Shut-UP

Who Knows--Sorry so long: 1

Who Knows--Sorry so long: 1 more thing…people are on here talking about the song means this and means that as if she wrote the song. NE-YO wrote the song, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know enough about her inner demons to speak on what the devil is saying to her. (not saying the devil isn’t trying to tear her away from God, but that’s what he does to all of us.) what a stupid way of thinking. Who cares who wrote the song she could have opted not to sing such a hot mess of lyrics.. It is all about choices and she made a choice to promote whackness.... When one of her fans die from listening to her heart felt song with a tight beat and wonderful vocals, who cares as long as if the song charts the billboards and becomes a hit single right, wrong.. What is she going to say to GOD when she tries to enter heaven, "GOD I only sang the song but I did not write the lyrics so that means I did not take part in such darkness that lead some of my fans to death."

softnpink: Couldn’t get

softnpink: Couldn’t get through the 2nd verse. That song is scary and Rihanna is just looking more demonic like at every turn. I’m convinced she’s a witch…like a real witch. Wasn’t feeling the lyrics to that song at all (I usu. luvs me a Ne-Yo song too). Not liking Rihanna’s plucked chicken/Woody Woodpecker look either. The “barb wire,” the darkness…it’s all too much. She is being pimped by the industry. Selling her soul to the devil by putting out this evil mess and calling it music.

Sizzle: I do not like this

Sizzle: I do not like this and I do not believe that it should be played on the radio. What about your fans, who will think that this song is NOT cool. I believe that you are going to get some deaths behind this song. I did kinda like her before this song. This is a hot mess and should not hit the airways. I wish someone will please ban this song, before someone kills themself, especially children who think that she is cool. I will not buy this album, at all. I so agree with you.

The beat is okay. So Neyo

The beat is okay. So Neyo wrote the song. She does sound better with her vocals. I wonder how her first week sales are going to be. I wonder how this song is going to do on the charts. I probably would have released a faster song as my first single, but we will see how people pick up on the single.

nothing is original anymore.

nothing is original anymore. rihanna is gorgeous & successful, but lacks talent. every aspect of her being from hair, to clothing, etc; is carefully constructed by a team. people like her & beyonce are now trying their hardest to keep up with acts like ladygaga. lady gaga writes her own music, struggled before she made it big & is a theatrical perform reminicist of david bowie & freddie mercury. yes, some of it is good pr, with all the costumes (but atleast it's her) when rihanna came out she wore her hair like she was going to the prom & dressed like she shopped at the mall. now, she's this "fashion icon" -- i don't agree. when beyonce came out she was wearing braids & bandana/denim dresses. people like diana ross (who may not have been that great of a singer, but was still a class act), jane birkin, etc; are who people should listen to. not trash. i love the fact that they are both black women on top & are successful. i commend them for dominating white-mainstream america. but they could atleast be original & write their own music-- something thought provoking & meaningful

From Rihanna Daily: People

From Rihanna Daily: People who think this song is about suicide are FAR from truth. Russian Roulette was never about suicide but about TAKING A RISK. Just because there’s a gun shot at the end of the song doesn’t mean some commits a suicide – but that he lost. Of course we do not encourage anyone to it since it’s like the most stupid game of all time… but Rihanna doesn’t encourage as well! Actually we should give her (and Ne-Yo obviously) props for such a lyrical song. Which also brings me to thought that Tiffany is too young to know anything about poetry!! But I will be so great to explain it to her so below you will find my explanation of “Russian Roulette” lyrics: Take a breath, take it deep Calm yourself, he says to me If you play, you play for keeps Take a gun, and count to three I’m sweating now, moving slow No time to think, my turn to go From the first verse we can hear that the LYRICAL SUBJET is talking about being in a risky situation in her life and she need to make a choice. This might be either about a decision in her life or love (or both at the same time). The presence of a second person means there’s someone involved in the decision process. A “gun” means our CHOICE (which as we all should know is also a heavy kind of gun and can make a lot of damage as well – it depends how we use it). You got to make sure you are taking the right path so you need to think about it before using it. There will always come the time when it will be YOUR TURN TO GO and choose (so use the “gun” in “russian roulette”). And you can see my heart beating You can see it through my chest And I’m terrified but I’m not leaving Know that I must must pass this test So just pull the trigger Every important decision in our life requires from us rethinking about it’s pros and cons. Whenever it’s a choice of school, relationship, work, family, health matters or even roller coster ride. We think if this will change our life for better or for worse. But the life is about taking a risk. Otherwise all grown up people would still live with their parents, wouldn’t get better jobs, schools, wouldn’t fall in love. So you got to “pull the trigger” and make this decision. If you love someone and want to spend the rest of your life with them you gotta propose etc. Say a prayer to yourself He says close your eyes Sometimes it helps And then I get a scary thought That he’s here means he’s never lost The second verse might mean that the second player encourage the lyrical subject to take the same path and he did (that’s why he “has never lost”). He already took the risk and want her to take the same step. Which might bring us to a conclusion that after all this might be a love song and that the second player is in love and want her to not be afraid and fall in love as well (since she’s scared to do so). As my life flashes before my eyes I’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise? So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye But it’s too late too pick up the value of my life There’s a moment in our life when we are forced to make a decision (that’s why you might not be able to “say goodbye”. And we cannot go back. Just like in russian roulette there comes the moment when it’s your turn. In this verse “sunrise” means a success. That’s why you always need to re-think all important decision before taking them! Because our life is just too precious to waste it!! But I guess we should ask Ne-Yo what was (or who) was he thinking about while writing this song/poem. However I am sure my explanation is pretty close and if you are smart enough you know there’s NOTHING about suicides and on the contary, this text shows us that we should have strengh to not be affraid, to take the risk, to win! It was definately a russian roulette for Rihanna to release a ballad for her first single! We will find out soon if it was a lucky or failed choice. I know I love it! This is what I understood by the song as well.

Personally, I don't think she

Personally, I don't think she is demonic. All of you who are saying that are blowing things out of proportion. That is her style and she is just expressing it. If you listen to some gothic, rock songs like Marilyn Manson, that is demonic. Rihanna is just simply edgy. When she first started out she was all in the island type vibe and really that is not what she wanted. Now she is able to do what she wants, dress how she wants and make the kinds of music she wants. I really like it because it's different. It's better than the usual music you hear about sex, stupid dances and money. So people stop hatin and let this young lady make her money. Yall hatin so much so she must be doin somethin right! Love ya Rih-Rih!

And she isnt singing a song about suicide, you imbecile. Its about love...i guess you didnt learn about similes and metaphors? SMH another thing...the Father says learn not of the occult and wherewithin..lest ye come under its spell.. can you say...is Rhi a sista in demon speak to you? **side-eye**
