Watch the Bajan beauty gyrate and croon below. What you think of her vocals, though? Leaning towards struggle, no?

    she sucks

  • TaraReed

    ha! funny she does doesnt she?? and why is she not only black but from the islands and she still cant dance. come rih

    • Okola

      Easy, I can answer your question. First of all, not every black person or islander  knows how to dance. Knowing how to dance is an individual preference, and not a collective one. The notion that every black person knows how to dance is a racial and ridiculous stereotype. I am black and i sure as hell don’t know how to dance.

    Wow…what a horrible performance.  Hate to make it a constant competition, but ish like this is why Bey is the reigning queen.

  • what in the world

    Clearly, whatever was in the water that Rihanna drank while filming her ‘Where Have You Been’ video has been pissed out. Indeed, when the stiff Barbadian hit the stage on ‘Saturday Night Live’ last evening there was little trace of the the energetic dance skills she displayed in that visual.

    Featuring her usual nasal vocals, Rihanna delivered rather uncomfortable renditions of ‘Birthday Cake’, ‘Talk That Talk’ and ‘Where Have You Been’. Of course, she did manage to draw cheers from the audience thanks to her team of dancers, elaborate stage sets and the “applause” sign.

    leaning towards???

  • Chyle50

    Boooo!!! I thought Mindless Behavior sung that song…that shows you how behind I am….LOL..go back to songs like “Umbrella” at least that song had some depth…

  • Heavy_Flow

    if it wasn’t for her clothing/personal shopper she wouldn’t be much to look at. i always want her to be a lot better than she is. talk that talk was a good album, but she’s a let down to watch.
