Unbelievable that she managed to get a record deal.

And age is not an excuse. I've seen children under the age of 10 that could sing her under a table.

The music industry is being polluted with a bunch of pretty girls that can't hold a tune. Why don't these chicks become models instead of trying to work their way into the entertainment industry via singing. No one is saying that they can't make a living off their beauty, but don't use the music industry to do it when you can't sing. This is similiar to what talentless rappers like 50 Cent do...use the music industry to become a business men because they know it's much easier than starting a non-entertainment business the traditional way.



Aren't they all talentless? lol

the reason I asked
is because I saw a performance
of "SOS" on one of those dance reality shows
and she lip synced to a pre-recorded track
and still sounded horrible

ROTFL

BTW, I HATE "Umbrella"
I absolutely HATE that song!
I tried to like it...
I really did...
because I love "SOS"
and I vowed I would check the girl
out from that point on out

I downloaded her album
but have yet to take a listen


I hated SOS! disbelief

Yeah. She's simple. She seems sweet. She's obviously in awe of Jay-Z. She's work fine in the modeling industry. Tyra's retired and needs a replacement.

Rhianna is hot who cares if she can't sing?

I wouldn't buy the album anyway. The only reason i pay any attention to most female artists is their looks. If your not hot i'm not interested.



hey, at least you're honest! lol

i think her vocal skills are mediocre. she's better than ashanti and cassie imo though, j. lo too! people will listen to her though because she's cute but what happens when the looks fade? confused

She cut her hair to show how serious she is...and she's singing such deep lyrics. lol

I don't know what happened on that song on youtube! Ha ha ha! She started off real good. Then I guess "something" went wrong... Maybe that was in the early part of her career. I think she has gotten way better. But hey I'm not out searching for her performances and evaluating them. She has a unique voice. if developed, more training and coaching, she'll be just fine.

to tell you the truth i think she cut her hear so there would be less Beyonce comparisons. she looks less like her now.

you know i've been trying to figure out if she can sing too. on the mtv movie awards it was ok but not perfect. she's got work to do.

Replacement of the foreheads. But seriously, I agree with that she'll do good in the fashion world.

The only reason why people say she cant sing, is because she's black.

Tell me how many white artists who can sing like Rihanna ? (I don't even say sing better ?)

If she was white, people would say how great singer she is.

The judgement when it comes to black female singers goes to the extrem, you have to sing just like Patti Labelle or you cant sing.


What about the Fergies, the Gwnen Stefanis, the Nelly furtados etc ? They don't even come close but nobody care, they are white.


She definitely CAN sing, but needs practice to improve her skills.


But saying she cant sing is plain WRONG

Dude, relax. Madge, Britney, Joss and the lot get roasted for their vocals as well on here.

The bitch can't sing. I wouldn't care if she was purple, she still can't sing. I'm black so I'm not being racist. I've said the same thing about Janet and Madonna on this site. She needs to find the fucking skill you think she needs to improve.

You are exactly what I was portraying, if you are a female black singer you have to sing like Pati Labelle or you CANT sing.

Rhianna is FAR better than Janet or Madonna. There's no compairison.

If she CANT sing, you have to consider that 90% of the mainstream white singers CANT sing too.


Not just Madonna, BUT 90% OF THE WHITE SINGERS CANT SING.

You have to be logical in your arguments. Being so extrem to judge black artists makes no sense.

What I'm trying to say to you is that race has absolutely nothing to do with this. Have you ever heard Rhianna live? She is no better than Janet or Madonna or Fergie or Gwen Stefani or Nelly Feturdo or Britney Spears.

I know that Christina can sing the skin off her big forehead though.

P.S. Erykah Badu can't sing like Patti LaBelle, but she can sing her ass off.
