Rihanna's Next Record To Be Like Thriller!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteMichael JacksonNeYo


Yes and YES!

We are totally pumped for this!

Although she never really left us, many were left underwhelmed with Rihanna's dark turn on her latest, Rated R!

Luckily for us, Bu Thiam, the Vice President of Def Jam Records, is assuring the world that girlfriend's next album is going to be anything BUT a snoozefest! In fact, he promises greatness!

He says:

Rihanna is coming along incredibly. I’m trying to push her to where every song will be a hit from 1 to 12. I’m talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson’s Thriller. We got smashes from Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City. We’re definitely going in with Ne-Yo, The-Dream and other writers and producers that have always been a part of her creative process since day one. She’s great to work with and very hands on with every song that’s being written and produced. She has visual concepts for just about every song. It’s already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time.

Damn right, gurl! That's EXACTLY what we want to hear!

Come back with a VENGEANCE!

What do U think?? Are U excited with the direction RiRi's latest is taking??

    She's yucky

  3. 3

    Wow, they are setting her up for a HUUUGE fail.

  4. 4

    Hell yeah! Anything will be better than "Rated R!" Can't wait!

  5. 5

    Yes I am.

  6. 6

    Idk i thought her last album was hotttt!! Shes unbelievable that girl can do no wrong! Woorrrrk it RiRi!

  7. 7

    she CANT sing, dance or write music… that out of tune yodeling that she calls music couldn't touch thriller with a 10 ft pole!

    LOLOLOL. Rihanna sounds like a dying animal. And what artist DOESN'T want their album to match Thriller?

    C'mon now. At least she could set REALISTIC goals. Copying Michael's outfits all the time and sampling his music doesn't mean she can match his legacy.

  10. 10

    will she start fondling little kids also?

  11. 11

    She seriously needs to grow her hair longer & get back to her natural color. She looks like a red haired Justin Bieber. It's so unflattering and unfeminine.

  12. 12

    By far the most ridiculous thing I've heard all day, Rihanna is a poor mans Janet Jackson just like GaGa is a poor mans Madonna. Rated R was TERRIBLE yet Perez barely said shit about it while doing everything he possibly can to saw awful things about Christina while her album (aside from the lead singles) is actually quite good. Rihanna hasn't done a single thing that's truly impressed me and like Britney she's a product of her producers. NEXT

  13. 13

    i liked her dark image
    i loved rated r

  14. 14

    I'll put my money on it being a piece of trash just like the last one.Thriller?Right!Thiam is right though,it is her time…………to go away.

  15. 15

    There will NEVER NEVER NEVER be another album like Thiller! EVER!!!!

  16. 16

    i love rhihanna! i know i'll b waiting for it! :) and im positive the rest of her fans will be anxious to see what she has instore for us next! good luck to her :)

  17. 17

    she looks more like michael jackson than michael jackson did

  18. 18

    its not possible. everyone of her albums have had fillers. the girls not good enough to make a no filler album. and a "timeless" feel? right. i hope they know, thier setting her up for a huge fail.

  19. 19

    no thanks

  20. 20

    michael jackson ???????

    yeah…right, only in rihanna's r-rated land…she is ridiculous, she thinks she is so edgyyy, and so avant-garde…lame lame

  21. exBFF says – reply to this


    nope. she's turned herself into a walking, talking blow up doll. Such a waste of talent.

  22. 22

    no..just no.. rihanna? attempting thriller? no sorry she wouldnt be able to pull it off, and im sure shes nice butthis is gonna fail :( why try and be something ur not? which is an amazing singer

  23. 23

    RiRi's looking more & more like a DYKE-MAN…..butt ugly!

  24. 24

    Oh girl, you will never be a Michael Jackson. Stop trying.

  25. 25

    Hey Perez, has the FBI caught up with you yet for transmitting kiddie porn electronically?

  26. 26

    Only a CRAZY person will dare to mention Rihanna's name in the same breath as MJ. Rihanna may be enjoying her PITY PARTY now, but everyone knows she can't sing. With the exception of Umbrella, all her music is total rubbish. A couple of years from now she will be out of the headlines,and hopefully back into obscurity with her awful voice.

  27. 27


  28. 28

    same producers=same results…Thriller? lol

  29. 29

    Thriller??? Haa haaa haaa, that sounds very unlikely

  30. Laury says – reply to this


    This sounds very exciting. At this point, anything is better than Rated R. Not that it was a bad album, I mean, after all the Chris Brown drama, I guess she just had a lot of stuff she needed to get off her chest, which is fine. But the dark phase has to stop. I want old RiRi back!

  31. 31

    I wish her the best but her and her people's goal of where this next album will go is unattainable. If alot of artist couldn't reach "Invincible's" success, how in the world does she or anyone else think reaching the success of "Thriller" is even close to possible?

  32. lje says – reply to this


    I don't think her monotone voice will be able to pull off anything other than the boring, hot-for-a-week, crap that she always does.

  33. 33

    Lol she's delusional.
    Her music is shit.
    And she sucks the devils dick.

  34. 34

    No becuz I am sick to death of everything about her!

  35. 35

    i loved rated r so…. fuck you perez

  36. 36

    Re: jp1988
    actually he has ripped her album apart, the only reason she wasn't ripped apart as much as christina is because she didn't "copy" gaga. also, perez is inconsistent.

  37. 37

  38. 38

    sure, i believe she could make an album of total hits, y not…she's had some fun ones so far. but her music is more like guilty pleasure music…michael jackson caliber? I think NOT. the girl could never compare to michael jackson, she doesn't have the level of talent. don't know about timeless either…but i'm still excited to hear it…I'd just rather hear new more talented people come on the scene with some good new music.

  39. 39

    can't wait

  40. Daily says – reply to this


    It will be a piece of shit but they will lie and call it a hit just like the Rated R shit.

  41. 41

    To say that Rihanna is vastly overrated would be the understatement of the century.

  42. 42

    I love her to death but why can't they come up with something 'new' for her?

  43. 43

    Re: preppygirl22 – No there wont be.

  44. 44

    Re: nanaama – CAN'T SING? Clean ur ears!

  45. 45

    Yall some haters Rihanna is beautiful. So glad I can accept ppl for who they are and not be a jealous hater. :) She's just a child anyways shes what 22??

  46. 46

    Good luck to her, hopefully the album will be better the next time, but she will never replace the KING OF POP. Just sayin'. :D

  47. 47

    When does "Rated X" come out?

  48. 48

    I use to really like her. I'm over her now, she is too cocky and arrogant. Celebrities need to learn the difference between confidence and conceit. Big diff. That BIG statement they've made about the CD only sets her up to fail.

  49. 49


  50. 50

    LOL. Nothing on this planet can come remotely close to Thriller, especially if it's attempted by RIHANNA? Come on now, people write your music for you! YOU AIN'T NO MICHAEL JACKSON, HONEY. No one will ever be.

  51. 51

    Re: bongo – Umm, you're a piece of shit. Michael Jackson wasn't a pedophile it was all about the MONEY. Do your own fucking research and think for yourself you media sheep.

  52. 52


    Damn, the bitch is truly fuckin' ugly.


  53. 53

  54. 54

    Re: dontbesonaive – she may be pretty…but that doesnt make her talented

  55. 55

    to compare this talentless tranny hack to michael jackson biggest selling album is ridiculous…

  56. Sam90 says – reply to this


    from rated r to the biggest album of all time, the one taht has inpired generations of artists, the one taht still sounds frech 30 years later, done by one of the greatest geniuses? LMAO who knew she had that kind of humour, Riri and her people, tahnks for the good laugh

  57. 57

    isn't this the same bullshit they said last time. and remember how excited you were perez? rated r=shit. she's being set up for a huge failure once again.

  58. 58

    WTF. She can't be serious.
    Nothing can be equally or better than Thriller.
    I can't wait for this failure of a album to drop.
    She can't sing for her life.

  59. 59


  60. 60

    Any artist who tries to compared their music or sales to Thriller is an idiot. No one could beat that album. No one.

  61. 61

    OH MAN, she just set herself up for a major fail.

  62. 62

    Re: Dumbass Mario – Dude, seriously, fuck off already!

  63. 63

    She's beautiful, and I like a lot of her music, but didn't they also say that Rated R was going to be an amazing album. They are obviously going to talk it up, however comparing it to MJ is just plain ridiculous. It could still be good, but if it's another Rated R, I can't see her being able to recover after that. GOOD LUCK RIHANNA!

  64. 64


  65. 65

    she's a badass…just sayin

  66. 66

    I hope she does the best kick arse job she can. Look and feel the material you are given to record. Best of luck she needs it. After all of her personal problems making headlines I think she did go to a dark place. Time to come back into the sunshine RiRi! You can do better.

  67. 67

    yayy! i can't wait.

  68. 68

    They better no try to hype it too much…could ultimately be setting her up for failure. And that VP can't say at all whatsoever that it'll be the same calibre as Thriller on any level. Only time and the people's reaction will tell if her next album will be even worthy of being compared to thriller.

  69. 69

    EPIC FAIL…… she is going down, lower and lower everytime she is plain ridiculous, and this is being said by an EX FAN of her….. she kinda looks like Jay Z in that pic, Riri u need to come back as the real you (not this edgy gangsta wannabe) or take ur ugly damn ass back to barbados

  70. 70

    how-does-katy-perry-measure up? Can Katy Perry measure up???

    Go to Listal and see Katy Perry judged against the great sex symbols?

    Can she stand alongside them?

  71. 71

    Why are they saying this? Setting up this no talent girl to anything a long the lines of Thriller is complete fuckery.

  72. 72

    Instead of talking about it i would like to see them doing it.. That bar is obviously too high but i think Rihanna can do a pretty decent album.. I think Good Girl Gone Bad had little album fillers.. If they can write 10 Umbrellas and Disturbias it will be the biggest smash of the decade.. But we'll have to wait and see..

  73. 73

    Rihanna is done.

  74. 74


  75. 75

    She totally failed with that last album. She needs to grow her hair back and have some good dance hits. She's a pretty girl but the edgy thing is just not working in 2010.

  76. 76

    LOL rhianna or anyone couldnt reach 1 of mj's albums if they tried
    why? because no one has anywhere close to his voice/talent/originality/dance
    i mean mj made his own style of dance,video's and he was an incrediable kind
    loving person,i miss mj soooo much,i want him back so much it hurts,he's the only one who can make timeless music

  77. 77

    Re: rineybeany – AGREE… She's just a freakin' amateur…

  78. 78

    LMAO….LMAO…LMAO…. Rihannna can't sing, can't dance…LOL… How is she gonna top thriller? LMAO…. That was really funny… Good joke… I had a great laugh…. How dare those lame ass producers compare her to Michael Jackson? How dare they? MJ is timeless!! His music will live on forever!!! Not those popish tunes of Rihanna's….. She is confused about the type of music she wants to make…She calls herself edgy and rock n roll but yet makes pop music… C'mon son…Get da fuck outta here wit da bullshit!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

  79. 79

    nothing new under the sun.

  80. 80

    ugly lol, she looks like a crossdresser.

  81. 81

    Somehow I don't think it will be anything like 'Thriller'.

  82. 82

    I like Rihanna but comparing her to MJ….that's just wrong. Come back to me when she has had 40 years of hits and then I'll consider the comparison. Oh and NOBODY is ever going to touch Thriller, not even Gaga…just not gonna happen

  83. 83

    YEAH!love you RIRI =)

  84. 84

    RiRi i love you, but you will fail, a epic fail

  85. 85

    hahahahahaaa!! she creative? very hands on?!! how? does she write/ produce? And if you call that singing I rather listen to my 4 year old…..point made…

  86. 86

    oh yeah…she loof like frankenstein with this hairdue….ugly talentless chick!!

  87. 87

    haha like heidi Montag did a new Thriller huh? yea right….

  88. 88

    After that hairdo…I've seen it all.

  89. 89

    Re: bongo – Sha-na-na's right. Go do your research and FREE yourself from the bondage of MEDIA BRAINWASH.

  90. 90

    Thriller?? HAHAHA it's been 30 years and nobody has made an album like the amazingness that's killed Thriller, but Rihanna will! Joke of the century!

  91. 91

    Her Rated R album was absolute garbage. Nothing about it appealed to me at all. I was not happy at all that she was on the "Nick" awards singing "rude boy". Even though she changed some words THAT song is NOT for kids. She lost my respect after that. And now they could have just said that each song on the next CD was going to be awesome, compare it to Thriller? NO.

  92. 92


  93. 93

    Any time anyone compares their work to Thriller it's an epic fail.

  94. 94

    the only thing that gets her noticed is cause she keeps trying to change her image and she wears no cloths in her videos, she has no talent at all and she will never make an album that can even come close to thriller! she cannot sing at all shes whiney and annoying and she needs to stop trying to be something shes not….shes not edgy and not talented and shes not gunna live up to this 'THRILLER' hype!!!! GO AWAYYYYY

  95. 95

    she is not that talented..at all…that "rock star" shit was really pushing it…no your a stupid Pop star..with the only audience u have is 12 to 14 year old's but then again that's all there is for anybody

  96. 96

    No album will ever be like Thriller, yeah good luck with that Rihanna lol.

  97. 97

    I love when these run of the mill music industry products attempt to compare themselves to Michael Jackson… it is always good for a laugh…

  98. 98

    This is BS, how dare she compare her next album to MJ's inmortal Thriller?? She needs to learn how to sing first. She can't dance, can't sing and doesn't even write songs. We will only have one MJ and one Madonna, end of story.

    Too bad Madonna didn't record In the Closet with MJ or went on tour together… that would have been hot :(

  99. 99

    a yodeling thriller album? cant wait.

    this bidtch is irritating.

    never thought i'd yearn for a ciara, ashanti and jlo comeback album - all 3 of them need euthanize this bidtch.

  100. 100

    Re: preppygirl22 – I agree with you 100 percent!! How could they say that! They are building this up for something huge bigger than life and nothing is bigger than MJ!!!! If ever a album would even come close to Thriller than go ahead and compare, brag whatever but till than don't even compare…
