Rihanna

Having heard this song numerous times on the radio, I finally realised it was Rihanna. What a funky tune.

YouTube - Rihanna - Rude Boy ♂ [with Lyrics]

"Rude Boy" is smut-pop of the highest order. "Umbrella" is still one of my favorite pop songs ever. So yeah, it's fair to say I like Rihanna.

Her songs are catchy and stay in my head all day. Not a 'fan' but she's ok. I think I first paid attention to her when she released Umbrella ella ella. I never knew she sang 'Dont stop the music' and I had heard it a million times.

And that vid you posted seems sooooooooooo slow to me. I've only heard it sped up/remixed as I listen to house/dance/trance a lot.

She's gorgeous.

Umbrella is one of the best tunes of the last 10 years or so, but Taylor's acoustic cover is better.

Take A Bow is great, but Lea Michele's version is better.

That's about all I've got to type about Rihanna at the moment.

Her last album was absolutely awful, but still managed to have a handful of singles I enjoyed.

I do love the Rihanna.

I was late to the Umbrella train, but I finally got it. There are a few of her other songs that are okay, but I'm mostly "meh" about her music. I don't think she's much of a singer.

But I like her - she seems a little out there, not so cookie cutter, does what she wants, gives herself weird hair and does her own thing. And plus, she did end up dumping that fucktard.

I've enjoyed her music since first hearing S.O.S., and Good Girl Gone Bad kind of confirmed my suspicions that she had more talent than the av-er-age pop singer (or, rather, she enlists better songwriters). I hate Rated R, but I intend to see her live soon, and she's not overloading the setlists with it.

She was one of the many openers for Kanye a year or two back. When she had "wardrobe changes", every guy in the place stopped what they were doing to stare at the stage. It was pretty funny.

she really can't sing to save her life
as irrelevant as that may be

I like a couple of her songs, but absolutely can't stand her slow whingey ballads Faster tracks seem to hide her lack of singing abilities better.

I'm not interested much in Rihanna, but I like some her songs, Rescue me/SOS, Pon de replay, most of all I love Rehab. Also, not long ago I loved Russian Roulette and Te amo, though I don't like the image she has now.

I heard that she is called sometimes... no, she, as I remember, said that she wanted to be like Madonna. I think if she wants, she must work very much. I saw some parts from her show "Good girl gone bad" - I was bored. Maybe, I'm a fool, but I haven't been excited.

By the way, did you know the fact that "Umbrella" could be Britney Spears' song?
