Another One Bites The Dust


Rihanna canceling concert dates left and right.

The rumors were true. Ticket sales for the Atlanta stop on Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth tour were so bad that the concert was scrapped. Riri canceled stops in Indiana and Colorado, too.

SOOo00 that makes 2 canceled dates in Arizona, 1 canceled date in Texas, 1 canceled date in Washington, 1 in Georgia, 1 in Indiana and 1 in Colorado. Seven canceled dates, but who's counting?

In her defense, and I do not like defending Ms. Fenty, the cities named have some of the highest unemployment rates right now, so maybe that's a contributing factor...would u pay ur last dime to see rhianna?

bitch might as well cancel the whole tour and save herself the embrassement...she will forever be an opening act in america..she is old news away..she still has not SOLD a milli yet in america...they can play her a million times on radio (payola) to get her top tens on BB but dnt make anyone want to see her or buy her cd!!

wonder if target have that in a size 8?

Pon de Fo'head singing half naked, showing her coochie and attempting to the sing does not make a concert. Nobody wants to see this haifer. And I do not even like the Rihanna songs sound way too immature for me. What happened to the real singers? I for one is tired of the fuckery carry on.

She sounds like a screeching kettle, and that is why her ticket sales SUCK!

IN THE PICTURE, LOOK AT OLE GIRL ON THE LOWER RIGHT WITH THE BLACK & WHITE SKIRT ON. SHE HAS THAT,(what the fuckin hell is RORICKKA wearing?)
LOOK ON HER FACE. AND YOU KNOW WHITE FOLKS GET OUR NAMES WRONG.

Sane said...

@ 8:58 - I can't front on that song neither, it's been on heavy rotation in my car since it came out & you're right about that Ike and Tina "it finally hit me" line too.

I still say she's way passed due to get sued behind these cancellations. I don't remember back in the day these type of decisions even being that easy. I'm most definitely no fan of hers but is she and her camp expecting to sell out each night? I mean, I'm just curious, what the numbers are because even if more than 50% of her tickets sold, those people who spent their money still deserve a show. To just cancel left and right over a few empty seats doesn't sound legal to me, especially after a contract was signed.

Take a break, regroup, hire a singing coach, make good music and then tour, Rihdamndiculous.

Wow rhirhi and she coming here to the bay area 2 morrow (oakland) where they just had the riots last night. She might have extra body guards oh well.

@ 5:14....you may have a point. RiRi star power is far from fading and people are just broke. Black folks didn't make her a star and her white fanbase is secure as hell. Her last album had a dark rock vibe....traditionally not embraced by 'us'. PLUS she's already banked up! These cancellations are no biggie!

Ummmmmmm..GAGA is selling out shows, so I don't think people are broke. I know people who attended her concerts and they say she is just not a great entertainer. *Shrugs*

TruthBeTold said...

I wouldn't pay money to see her , I understand why no one else would...Beyaki and her need to combine forces and put on a two women ( hooker) show...that way maybe they will still sell some tickets...Beyaki had to price her's at $20 to get them moving...
SMH..no talent eventually catches up to you , what do you do after an amazing career is over and you're 35 sitting in Barbados recieving US government welfare? must be rough...

Anonymous said...

Maybe RiRi will date Drake, fuck his ass up in a lambo, make him pop the shit out her ass and she holla abuse and she's back on top, just wait til her next LP is about to drop that's when it'll go down

Anonymous said...

People kill me when they say her white fanbase where the hell are they now, they sure isn't purchasing her shit right now.The truth is Rihanna is fading becasue she don't give a damn about her career she want the life style but don't want to put in hard work to keep it and its beginning to show.

Mena said...

nah @ 12.03 Shes gonna say the baseball dude beat her ass with a bat. And then the Diane Sawyer, Oprah interviews, then back on top!

P.S. She looks like a float in the Thanksgiving Day parade.

Soulwriter said...

Could somebody----anybody---PLEASE explain Rhianna's appeal to me as an artist and performer....PLEASE?!? I can't even BEGIN to comprehend her value as an entertainer. Then again, the last concert I went to was in May and 2 of the acts played (gasp) LIVE INSTRUMENTS WHILE SINGING----IMAGINE!!!

It's not about being broke. Pictures posted all over these blogs with ninjas at the club, sporting LV, etc.
RiRi should just do like Eve and not perform anymore just walk around and get her picture taken.

RHI RHI NEEDS TO CONTINUE GETTING ENDORSEMENTS AND MODEL. SHE IS NOT A PERFORMER. SHE CERTAINLY CANNOT SING NOR DANCE. SHE SOUNDS LIKE A BILLY GOAT.

Alwayz Real said...

I would too If I looked like that. Rihanna ain't shit...lets move on ppl. NEXT!!!

NubianGoddez said...

Whichever fool that made that gawdawful outfit, should have their scissors, needle and thread revoked immediately. that is one hideous outfit.

Anonymous said...

Well, to play devil's advocate, most of those "cancelled" dates have been brought back because they've decided to move her shows to smaller venues, which in retrospect is still a bad thing because she's supposed to be a major arena act like her competition (Lady GaGa played at the Fox Theatre back in December and she's going to Philips Arena when she comes back to Atlanta next year).

Anonymous said...

I couldnt imagine going to see her live.

Anonymous said...

To be fair, the dates were rescheduled for smaller venues. So while she isn't able to sell out big in some areas she still has an audience.

Rihanna is HUGE with young girls - they love her. I'd say her fanbase is 12-22 year old girls. Gaga's fanbase are gays that range in age and therefore make way more money and can afford to buy tickets.

In music, if you want to be mainstream, you have to appeal to women and gays primarily. They are the ones that buy tickets and aren't embarrassed to stan for talentless people.

Hetero men have sports and videogames to keep them entertained.

^5 2:02.... You're right too.
I never thought of that. Especially her GAY FAN'S. They love wild and out shit like that.

^5 12:53.... I agree with you as well. I think she would do a hell of alot better being a model and doing commercials. Specially Make-up (Cover Girl). Cause we all seen her without it when Chris popped that knoggin. Im not laughing or anything.
AKATRIPPY... (:

Hey....not stanning but get used to RhiRhi. Shes not going anywhere! The tour is not cancelled although some venues have been. I won't even try to explain her star power. Whatever it is, she can bank on it! He'll she's not even the least talented "star" out there...anybody heard of Miley Cyrus???
But please Snitch....give us a break with the RhiRhi news.

she may as well model bcuz singing definately isnt her calling

Anonymous said...

this bitch is a gimmick gone bad. to think she could actually headline a tour. yall know she aint used to working that hard.

she's not entertaining at all and the world knows it. she rode that well deserved ass whoopin til the wheels fell off. damn wheels fell off and jay z put more on. she used it as an opportunity to further her career while tarnishing that dude's image. she has yet to say what really happened.

rhianna knows she provoked that ass whoopin. she has gone on record a few times about her bad temper, but just so happen that one night, she dont know what went wrong. bitch choke already.

Rihanna is a no-talent-having whore who got successful purely because of looks.
Chris Brown is a narcissistic, whiny ass little bitch who can't sing but dances well so he gets a pass from folks. They both need to disappear.

--------------------------------------------------Most retards only here retarded shit! So I understand why u cant comprehend it! Lady Gaga and Rhianna are 2 different artist and have totally different fan base. If ppl had more disposable income, she may not have canceled the dates, but fact is fact....check out the Bureau of Statistics instead of ranting like a retard. Oh wait a minute u are, my bad. (kanye shrug)

Anonymous said...

lol yall leave that girl alone. All she gotta do is lower her ticket prices, these singers better go back to charging $10 to $20 a ticket like back in the 80's. Some money is better than no money. These concerts need to be more affordable. For you older folks, Yall remember from when back in the day, back in the 80's when the fans got mad at Michael Jackson for charging $30 for tickets to see him because nobody was use to paying that to see a singer? Well at least not in America baby! Well it aint nooooo different today especially now that we in a recession.

rhianna need to sit down somewhere she is not so talented... she sells bcos of her light skin and bcos some people thinks she is pretty... her songs doesn't say anything meaningfull and they last only for a summer....go sit down somewhere

Anonymous said...

Nobody cares about music with meaning anymore look at wat happend to tony braxton..I mean c'mon if people cared about meaningful music mjs invicible would have sold at least 25 mil instead of 12. Thats a dam shame even with the lowest sales of his history he was still #1. But like I sed no one cares lady gaga is crap and no one else can see it because the lack of originality from the industry. I do musical theater; but I swear if i was offered a record deal like heather headley; I wouldnt take it its crap.-so over this bish..

Allie said...

@ 5:11 as an ATL resident I can tell you that people are selling out shows here. Maxwell's show sold out in a matter of days and he had to add a second date that sold out as well. Jay sold out and Frankie Beverly sold out. Like people said it had NOTHING to do with unemployment people just don't want to see Rhianna's ass in concert.

________________________________________________bc that's nicca ish!! You would also spend ur baby's milk money on the new Jordan's! If u dont got it, then u definitely not gonna get for rhianna. Never said she was great, hell never said she was even mediocre, but many of the cities listed have a high unemployment rate, so that is that. If u are unemployed and still spent money to see Jay-Z, then I can say with 100% certainty that u keep a crazy stock of candles at ur crib, bc u also like being in the dark. I dont give a f'k if this bish never does another concert in her life, I think its silly to say her dates were canceled purely bc u dont like her & secretly want to be her...no stanning...I personally think she is rich boy.
