Congrats to all of the songwriters, producers, vocal trainers and auto tune.

I hate Elvis Presley but Rihanna wish she had one-fifth of the talent he had. She needs to thank Jay-Z's dick and witchcraft for her success.

But I thought he was the King?***

***Meaning: King of Thieves who tried to steal an artform for which many of the originators of color never got their due. Way to go Rihanna! Oh, and I love you Little Richard, wherever you are!)

Things that make Bey's butt pads itch.

LOL I know Rih numbers are fake as hell that's probably what would make Bey;s ass itch the most. The fact that She was not allowed to spread those particular lies about herself.
P'oh Bey.

but the music is so bad; at least we still sing elvis songs.

Dont know when the last time I heard somebody sing rihanna, or beyonce for that matter.

They hype these singles up for the thirsty, then the song fades into oblivion

The fact that an auto-tuned, oversexualized, non-peforming, chipmunk voiced artist such as Rihanna is considered at the top of any list above real singers and real performers just shows you the state of music today. She is the Donald Trump of the music industry.

Sorry Snitch I'm calling Alternative Facts on this one.
Rihanna is cool but there is no way in hell she's sold 270million of anything. She can't even sell out concert venues.

Whoa, Elvis died @ a young age and even @ that Rihanna doesn't have drip of his talent. Roc Nation publicity @ it again - it's so transparent.

Good job Rihanna! Came from nothing and now shes out here breaking records! We all have the same 24 hours in a day...why use some of that time to down another person that is apparently using their time wisely. No hate over here get that money!

Sooooooo Rihanna outsold Michael, Madonna, Mariah, Whitney, Janet etc all of them in a day and age where people don't even buy music like that anymore? Something in the milk ain't clean who is this according to, billboard, Nelson,... who? I need to see some receipts.

Lies and propaganda! Elvis sold over 1 BILLION records world wide, Michael sold over 750 million, and Madonna sold over 300 million so how and when did Rihanna outsell them? Show me the receipts! Micheal still has the best selling album of ALL TIME, and yet none of Rihanna's albums have even gone diamond lol get out of here with these made up alternative facts!

Adele sold like 3 million albums in a week. It usually takes 6 months to a year for Rihanna's album to go double platinum (when Samsung isn't giving them away for free, that is) so I'm not buying this. These new no talent having artist always find ways to cheat the system and fudge their numbers. How much you wanna bet that they included stream plays, digital downloads, YouTube views, and a bunch of other stuff to inflate the numbers.

Where are these fraudulent numbers from? First of all a quick google search shows Elvis sold WAY more than 200 million records, its estimated that he sold closer to 1 billion. Second of all Guinness Book of World Records has Madonna as the best selling female artist of all time with over 300 million records sold http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/best-selling-female-recording-artist

So if Rihanna didn't out sell Madonna which according to the numbers in this post she didn't, how is she the best selling female artist let alone best selling solo artist of all time?

Listen, we know these are lies but who are these people on a Black blog riding hard for Elvis? I betcha no one would be on People.com defending Rihanna if the roles were reversed. Wake up and stay on code, Black people.

Sunni Daze I concur. Black folk riding for Elvis, he was poor imitation of us.
