If you are a reader of The Clearance Aisle, you are well aware that Leslie and I are NOT Rihanna enthusiast.
I think it all really started last summer when we attended the Glow in the Dark tour.
We were 5th row, hella close to the stage and the show was unbelievable, except…
Rihanna performed and she basically sucked.
It left us wondering,“Uh, why is she famous again?”
Rihanna is not like a Beyonce.
It’s damn near impossible to hate on Beyonce because she is booku talented, regardless of the fact that she acts like an awkward fembot during interview sometimes.
It’s also hard to hate on someone like T-Pain.
He may not be the greatest singer, but he just seems like a great person.
His work ethic and personality make you stay on his side regardless.
But with Rihanna, there is nothing there.
She is a mediocre singer and dancer, which makes her a mediocre performer, who happens to have a dope production team to back her musically.
She doesn’t come off as having the greatest personality in the world and her sense of humor seems like that those crunchy Cheetos you accidentally left out, cheesy and stale.
Oh yes, but I do recall one thing she has…
A damn stylist!
(yeah, an entire glam squad including hair, make-up and wardrobe 24/7 that makes her look fabolous everyday)
Seriously, would people be stunting on Rihanna if she were still in her “Pon de Replay” days?
As Michael Kyle from “My Wife and Kids” would say, “Uh, neh.” lol
Leslie and I (and damn near all of our female companions) are always posing this…
Question: “Man, if we had money like that and someone doing our hair and make-up, do you know how effing fly we would be?”
Answer: Hella fly.
I think the money made Rihanna.
It was not and is not her talent because there are a ton of girls that can do what she does.
And as Erica would say, she jocked Kelis' hair anyway. lol
Yeah she was a cute girl before, but come on now...
P.S. What the hell happens to all her clothes after she wears them?
I wonder if people just give them to her so she can be seen in them and then she gives them right back.
P.P.S. Call me a "hater" if you please, but I just think the real fly fashionistas like Kesh, Jasmin Rodriguez and Karla should be giving the glow and the glo-rey. They are real women with real, insane style.
P.P.P.S. I started writing this post back in May, but I was just waiting for something to trigger me posting it. Well I was triggered alright. Someone just called her the "black Madonna" and I almost molly-whopped them on the top of their head. lol
