  • As I said before…. Rihanna is a singles monster.

    • DreamBigLiveLarge

      you again? with your ridiculous comments

      • You again? I know you’re a Black Jay Supreme fan but damn…..

      • DreamBigLiveLarge

        nah. your stupidity just seems to catch my attention every time.

  • Anthony Mason

    What is sad is the b**** sold her soul riches. Smh….

    Can’t sing, can’t dance….annoying as hell….


      She’s pop, they can have her, LOL.

    • DreamBigLiveLarge

      shes actually extremely talented

      • Anthony Mason

        Compared to other pop artists, she is on the lower end of the talent spectrum to me. She is more where she is about who she knows and who has backed her since day one than what she realistically brings to the table…

        Look at her relationship with Jay Z since her first single dropped….

      • DreamBigLiveLarge

        key word is to you. thats YOUR opinion. her millions of fans would probably disagree. you can’t garnish fans by bing talentless. nor spawn more hit records than any other artists in this generation (fact). its not a conspiracy why she’s popping, she’s popping because she’s good. let her be great

      • Anthony Mason

        “Let her be great” ….

        Do you think anything I say will change the opinion of her millions of adoring fans? It won’t….

        Many would agree with me….but the Rhianna mafia will try to burn me at the stake for speaking such blasphemy against their God Lucifer….

        I know where she truly gets her influence and power from…do you bruh?

      • DreamBigLiveLarge

        illuminati? the devil? if your answer is yes to either of the above, please wake up. to say the devil can sway the opinions of the masses (musically) is ridiculous. at the end of the day bad music is bad music and good music is good music. do you think adele sells because of the devil? did Mariah carey, Michael Jackson, jay-z, tupac, outkast, beyonce, Brittany spears sell records because of the devil? no. they made good music. sure they get a bigger push from the powers that be (the real devils, the white devils at the head of these record labels) but that’s only because they are the stars. the artists with STAR POWER. the ones that will sell these big numbers and generate a mass amount of fans. its deeper than the videos you watch on youtube, which honestly have no justifiable facts in them. all point-of-view and opinion. so like I said, stop trying to make up a reason why she has fans and just let her be great. damn.

      • Anthony Mason

        Do you understand what it takes to get a lucrative record deal these days….

        I know and it is from first hand interaction…Do you know?….

      • DreamBigLiveLarge

        yes I know. it takes a good lawyer, persistence, TALENT, and some sort of record to show you will be lucrative for the company.

      • Anthony Mason

        Once you get in and get on….that is not where it ends to get to the top…

        This is common knowledge to anyone even in the corporate sector in all areas of lucrative business like myself. I am a white collar biracial male telling you this. I’m not a little kid acting tough and acting “anti establishment”…

        I have seen it, witnessed the damage to families and people have told me point blank. This is a deep ocean and I know the food chain in intimate detail…

        I am a shrewd businessman who sticks to my guns and can see s*** for what it is but I won’t sacrifice my integrity to kill my people (black and other ethnics ).

        F*** her and her music. This life is multidimensional and if you aren’t aware of your surroundings it is hard to see….

        The only true God has a plan for those who seek the truth and look to him for guidance. Money does not make you a boss or determine your ultimate outcome in God’s eyes. It is deep so be careful what you do….

        The antichrist system is in full effect and your personal success has no bearing on what I said. You see it or you fall victim to it….Pick a side…

      • DreamBigLiveLarge

        im sorry but regardless of what you say, you cant make it to the “top” of the music industry without quality music. sure you may have to make certain decisions to get through certain doors, but at the end of the day if you don’t have quality product, they wont even extend the offer to take you through the doors. it aint like just anybody can get on in the music industry because it don’t work like that, and you know that. youre literally arguing your point to the point youre getting off topic.

      • Anthony Mason

        Would you like me to define quality for you?

        If record sales=quality to you it means you aren’t factoring in distribution channels

      • DreamBigLiveLarge

        no record sales does not = quality by any means. quality = quality. GOOD music. the same thing I’ve been talking about this whole conversation. if your music is garbage, not even the most powerful and influential distribution channels can force consumers to buy it.
