I have been a Rihanna stan since I heard her first hit ‘Pon da Replay’ back in 2005. The Bajan beauty has always had an interesting sound with hits that I found my hips moving to. A lot of people down Rihanna for her lack of vocal skill, but I grew up during the era of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and Prince who don’t have “traditional” singing voices, but who’s stage presence, personality, style, and sheer attraction, made them successes. Rihanna, in my opinion, is no Madonna, but she is no slack either.
Rihanna’s latest effort, Loud, hit the stores yesterday, and she is making her rounds through many appearances to promote the album. Rihanna is a ‘Cubicle Chick’ because despite her naysayers, she continues to move forward doing what she loves, and sets trends while doing so. She’s a businesswoman with a published book and is making her acting appearance next year in the anticipated movie flick, Battleship, inspired by the old-school game.
Here are a few pictures of the ‘What’s My Name’ singer arriving at Late Show with David Letterman yesterday where she performed. Not sure if I am liking the long red cotton candy colored hair, but she is still gorge just the same.
What do you think of Rihanna’s current look?
