Rihanna Talks Pop Queendom

| Filed under: RihannaBritney SpearsMedia MinuteBeyonceKaty PerryLady GaGaKe$ha

RiRi Queen

In a recent interview with Glamour, Rihanna has no problem admitting she's one of the queens who runs this ish.

Commenting on Beyonce's statement in Complex about the world having space for more than one queen, Rihanna agreed, but added a limit to the thrones:

There’s a pack. It’s me, Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyoncé…who else? Ke$ha, for sure. Women are definitely dominating music right now, and that’s because we are competitive beings. I feel like music hasn’t been this exciting in a while.

Yeah, girrl! But wait, aren't you forgetting someone? It's Britney, bitch!

Rihanna also added how being a pop queen feels like walking on thin ice:

I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life. I feel like pop stars can’t be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art.

Tell it, girlfriend! Tell it! That's how we like it, like it!

  1. 1

    rihanna kinda…stinks



  2. 2

    Adele owns all these auto tuned bitches!



  3. 3

    How the he'll do u list kasha and totally leave out britney?? Rihanna can't be queen running this shit when she doesn't even know what's up



  4. 4

    Britney hasn't been in the pack for a long time



  5. 5

    She is so overrated and has no real talent whatsoever!



  6. 6

    She would leave out Adele and Britney. She doesn't really belong there herself in my opinion. Britney will always be in the pack.



  7. 7

    britney sucks.



  8. 8

    it's perfectly logical why britney wasnt mentioned. she's kind of like in her own pack…sort of in between them mentioned ladies and the legends like madonna janet whitney and mooriah. just sayin'

  9. JSP says – reply to this


    9

    it's definitely a little insulting that she neglected to mention britney, especially considering that "s&m" only topped the billboard charts after britney's remix was released. britney's been on top of her game for over a decade, and frankly deserves one of those crowns more than beyonce does. her run is over unless she manages some sort of miracle comeback.



  10. 10

    Music to me hasn't been this boring.Theres nothing to look forward to anymore.

  11. FS says – reply to this

    She's getting whiter and whiter with each passing day.

  12. JSP says – reply to this

    Re: Manda756 – Maybe you should take a look at the billboard charts. i'm pretty sure that britney currently has two top 40 hits, and at least one for sure.



  13. 13

    Re: Manda756

    shitney's album is out the top tin in every chart in the world AFTER ONLY 2 WEEKS OF ITS RELEASE
    do you call this success ??
    the album is a major commercial flop



  16. 16

    Wow i love Rihanna and all but wtf….she needs to watch it because we were all really REALLY interested in her at the beginning of this year and that's because she was going from rated r to loud and her style was insane at the time of rated r but now this loud crap is starting to be washed up and we're almost pretty much over it, cheers isn't even going to do well either to be honest and i hope it was a mistake to leave Britney out like that or maybe Rihanna feels a certain way about her after the whole AA performance who knows. whatevsss still bitchy



  17. 17

    britney who ??
    this whore can't sing

  27. 27

    long live queen gaga and princess rihanna

  28. JSP says – reply to this


    28

    Re: madonna is shit – it's true that britney's last few albums haven't been hugely successful, but she's still selling singles like crazy. music isn't about albums anymore, anyways. singles are the future, and beyonce's new album still hasn't managed to produce a major hit.



  29. 29

    Re: madonna is shit – get a fucking life…you are soooo sad thanks for the laugh you are nothing but a joke keep talking shit britney will always be classier, richer and prettier than you. it must eat you up inside now go cry in your lady gaga pillow dumb ass.



  30. 30

    why didn't rihanna inlcude britney britney hasn't been flopping this era. her album seels are flopping but too have 3 singles reach top ten in billboard is no flop hold it against me stayed in the top ten for about 2 months same with till the world ends which was brintey longest single to stay in the top 10 spot of her career. lasted in the top ten for about 3 months. and it's still in the top 20. I wanna go is in the top ten in itunes and is currently in the top 20. slowly reaching the top ten as every week passes. not too mention britney is selling out concerts world wide without stopping anytime soon. I find this a little bitchy of rihanna not to mention britney which britney doing fairly will on the singles catogory not to mention the only reasone her single S&m reach number #1 on itunes is thanks to britney.

  31. JSP says – reply to this


    31

    Re: madonna is shit – and i love gaga and rihanna, too. they're two of my favorite artists, they're just not the icons that britney is. and not only has your beloved rihanna collaborated with britney, rumor has it she's also working with madonna on her new album. lol



  32. 32

    Can she (and Katy Perry, and ESPECIALLY Britney) wear something suitable for our eyes, please? Not to mention tween girls' eyes? I am really getting tired of wondering if today is the day I'm going to see their vulvas.



  33. 33

    btw why would rihanna bother mentioning beyonce she hasn't had a hit at all in this new album her new album is hardly getting good reviews and is being notice by anyone.



  34. 34

    Re: madonna is shit – lol you hate britney yet you have a amazing looking picture of her as your avatar get a life are you sure you hate britney get a life britney spears has been selling very will in her singles sells. you know so much about britney and not too mention you still have a good looking picture of her lol.



  35. 35

    Except they're all talented and she's not…..bitch



  36. 36

    Re: madonna is shit – Your comments are so annoying. You're probably some fat 12 year old boy with Lady Gaga posters all over your bed room. Why are you so threatened by Brit that you NEED to try and bring her down in every comment? Every single off FF is doing well.



  37. 37

    Re: madonna is shit – Ignorance will kill you my friend.
    WW BOMT sold over 25m.
    OIDA sold over 20m
    Britney sold over 17m
    ITZ sold over 10m
    Blackout sold over 3m
    Circus sold 5m
    SO ignorant.



  38. 38

    Re: JSP – Circus was a huge success.. it sold 5 million copies.. with Womanizer selling 6m, Circus selling 5m. WITH HARDLY ANY PROMO.



  39. 39

    Rihanna's doing really well for herself, love her Loud album… but she seriously needs to f*ck off with her attitude.



  40. 40

    "You're delusional, You're delusional…"

  41. 7tizz says – reply to this


    41

    Singing off-key to your prerecorded voice while hopping around in your underwear on stage is art?

    News to me.



  42. 42

    The queen of pop is undoubtedly Gaga. At least for the last 2 years. Before it was Britney. And before Britney Madonna. That's the true tea!



  43. 43

    Re: madonna is shit
    For somebody wgho hates Britney so much you know quit much about her.. very curious…

    And for you information, Femme Fatale tour isn't flopping at all.
    She is going to play concerts in South America for 80.000 crowd.
    yeah,… definietely flop :P



  44. 44

    For the record… Madonna is the Queen of Pop and Britney is the Princess of Pop. That's all! It was this way for 13 years and it is still now!
    Let's see how Flop KaKa wil be doing in 10 years time.
    Brit has long career and still impress. Her singles debuting at no.1 spots so thats huge!
    And Madge is still doing great!



  45. 45

    Re: Tragical
    She can't be the queen. She is for only fucking 2 years in the business!
    Her singles already flopping so lets see what will happen in 5 years from now…
    People are tired of her now… She is just a freak…



  46. 46

    its POP queendom not music queendom in general. adele isnt doing pop so why would she be mentioned??? britney on the other hand should be in the group yeah.

  47. china says – reply to this


    47

    sure there is a pack: a pack of morons.



  48. 48

    Shut the fuck up ya fucking greasy ghetto slut.What a collection of no talent media whores.



  49. 49

    will Adele ever release a new single??



  50. 50

    Big deal. She didn't mention Adele, Pink or everyone else, either. You really think she's supposed to remember all that during an interview? You guys act like she did something criminal



  51. 51

    Omfg!! Let's talk about that pack of hers in 24 months!! Lmfao!!!! RiRi, be sure to save your money and invest well!!



  52. 52

    Re: madonna is shit – But all 3 of Britney's singles from FF have been huge!! Till The World Ends is one of the biggest hits of the year…AND next week Brit will have her fourth top ten hit of year so far, including two number ones!!…one of them with Ms. Rihanna!! Face it, you're obviously very threatened and more than a little obsessed by the power of Madonna and Britney!! xo



  53. 53

    Re: booboo1111 – LOL!! So true!!



  54. 54

    Re: JSP – Actually, Britney has three, all of which are from Femme Fatale in TOP 40. "I Wanna Go" is in top 7 on ITunes..GAG GAG and RIhanna are not even on the list….LOL…



  55. 55

    Re: madonna is shit – She does sing, b/c I just saw her in Houston concert..she sang live…of course you are wrong again. She has written some of her songs..you are wrong again…and she dances well (maybe not as good as before her 2 kids and 2 knee surgeries) but sure a hell of a lot better than GAG GAG..brainwashed gay lil munster twit



  56. 56

    Re: madonna is shit – QUIT LYING AND SPREADING FALLACIES AND NOTHING BUT INACCURATE FALSEHOODS..you have no credibility whatsoever. Britney has sold over 117 million copies,been in business for 13 years, 9 albums (including greatest hits and #1singles) and 6 #1 albums. How can you sit there a constantly LIE LIE LIE ..you need to seriously get help. She never cheated and committed fraud to sell any of those 117 million albums either. She never gave away freebies, and she never gave at .99 for two days. Talk about unsubstantiated nonsense…you need to be "schooled" with facts on other artists. All of your numbers are dead wrong. For example, Circus sold 2.5 mill in less than 8 mos, and Femme Fatale sold 600K in less than 2 months…go back, do your homework, report on valid and credible facts…pathetic loser….Her tour is getting rave reviews from both critics and fans..I have been to her concert this month…ITS INCREDIBLE…try attending and witnessing for yourself instead of making up lies that no one believes anyway!



  57. 57

    Re: madonna is shit – I WANNA GO is #7 on ITUNES>..FLOPGA is not even in top 10…validate that bitch



  58. 58

    Re: madonna is shit – Her tour flopped? Really? Every venue is sold out. Again, all you do is lie. Only certain seats (nosebleed section) were sold at 50% at only certain venues. This accounted for less than 10% of seats…you do realize this right? Obviously not…only few seats from few venues discounted..everything was sold out. Tour is major success and totally worth it..the reviews are outstanding. By the way…GAG GAG did the exact same thing for her tours…ALL OF HER VENUES sold tickets for 50%..explain that on for your argument? LOL did know that or report that huh. Explain her giving away albums and then selling at .99 to make sales…commercial fraud and cheating…Dont even say it's Amazon's fault..GAG GAG knew about it and allowed it…deplorable



  59. 59

    Re: does the truth hurt bitch? – He thinks and pretends that he knows about Britney..he knows nothing. All of his blogs are totally unvalidated and lack credibility. She makes up stuff and numbers in his head…all he does is lie lie lie



  60. 60

    Re: Chrisu – Every venue is sold out and the reviews are phenomenal for this tour. I went to the one in Houston, and it was sold out and crowd on its feet entire time. Totally engaging entertainer and phenomenal performance…she was amazing, looked, great, and sang live throughout the concert…She just added more legs to European tour, North American Tour, London, and South America..this tour is massive and huge success



  61. 61

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – And I WANNA GO is already atop the charts on ITUNES…GAG GAG is no where to be found LMAO



  62. 62

    its because britney is the queen above all those bitches :) )))))))



  63. 63

    When this pack sells over 100 million albums like Brit or 300 million like Madonna…then we'll talk!! Lmao!! I guess she forgot TAYLOR!! Face it, this jungle bunny was trying to get some press…it's the first time a Rihanna post has gotten a lot of comments!! That's what the coon wanted!! LOLZ!! P.S. How did RiRi manage to get S&M to number one?? Thoughts?? lolz



  64. 64

    Re: OriginalRecipe – Will Original Recipe ever reveal what IT looks like? Stay tuned… LOLZ!!



  65. 65

    really rihanna,you mention kesha and not britney?shut the fuck up,will ya!And to the Britney haters,expecially madonna is shit or what the fuck your name is,how about you get a life and get out of gaga's ass?you can't admit britney is still as successful as ever,while your tranny is flopping so fucking hard



  66. 66

    Re: madonna is shit – Grandma Munster's on the Edge of Glory!! LMFAO!! Is the kike nosed twat cleaner gonna squeeze a hit of this shitfest ”album of the decade”?? If so, when?? LOLZ!!



  67. 67

    Beyonce and Gaga sure, but Rihanna you are more like a court jester when it comes to talent…u can't even sing!!! I think you are a beautiful girl who needs to stick to doing what you do best, modelling.



  68. 68

    The greatest female artist of all time is Lady Gaga.



  69. 69

    Re: tellall – I think you meant Madonna…and the most successful too!! :-) Lady Gaga is fighting to stay in the game right now. Her ”album of the decade” is a huge disaster and she couldn't make her latest single, Edge of Glory, a hit, even though she appeared on every show in every country!! LolZ. The song and video just tanked. Madonna and her 300 million, boo boo!! lol XO



  70. 70

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – 69 - Gaga has an incredible voice. She actually can sing. She is the Queen of Pop. The Lady has dethroned everyone. She fucking rocks! :) :) :)



  71. 71

    Poor RiRi…She actually believes, bless her heart, that people are going to be talking about her in 5 years. Lmfao!!



  72. 72

    Re: tellall – If she's the Queen then why couldn't she sell albums without giving them away? And, more importantly, if she's the Queen, why couldn't she make Edge of Glory a hit?? She performed if EVERYWHERE and yet it still flopped. Thoughts? Lmfao!! Madonna and her 300 million, boo boo. Why don't you nurse and suck on that fact for awhile. Remember, watch your TEETH!! lolz



  73. 73

    Re: tellall – IMPOSSIBLE..she has not and never will dethrone anyone. She is known for her lies, deception, ripoffs, cheating, and fraudulent tactics of giving albums away and whoring herself out with cheap stunts and cheap sales. She's been in the mix for 2 years….BRITNEY has been in it for 13…Madonna for like 25 years lol…No one will even come close to removing these two POP ICON QUEENS…GAG GAG is FLOP FLOP and in 10 years she will be Marilyn Manson's twin..she is well on her way to UGLIEST entertainer in history. Her voice? Really? Kelly Clarkson rips GAG GAG's voice to shreds..GAG GAG can't nearly hit or sustain high notes like Kelly…and well…nothing more to day..suck on that !



  74. 74

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – 72 - Edge of Glory is fucking awesome! I love that song!!! Lady Gaga really knows good music. Cher admires Lady Gaga. She wants to work with the Queen of Pop. Bette thinks Gaga is amazing. Two mermaids. Sigh…Gaga has dethroned them all. She rules supreme. She's Queen. She's greatly talented.



  75. 75

    Re: justacritic – 73 - No one knows who Kelly fucking Clarkson is!!! The entire planets knows about Lady Gaga. She's that good. That's why she's Queen of Pop. Madonna is a washed-up old has-been who never could sing. Britney is a wreck. Lady Gaga stands alone at the top being ruler of music.



  76. 76

    Lady Gaga is the Meryl Streep of Music. She's Queen. Madonna is Mischa Barton. Britney, Tara Reid.



  77. 77

    Re: tellall – Peen, you didn't answer my question. If she's Queen, why then is she unable to put out a hit album or a hit song? I'm glad you love Edge of Glory, but my question was why is Edge of Glory such a huge flop? She's performed it EVERYWHERE and still the song (and video) flopped. Why? Thoughts? Lmfao!!



  78. 78

    Re: tellall how much does lady gaga pay you?remember,breathe sometimes,being stuck in her ass all the time is unhealthy.



  79. 79

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – 77 - Lady Gaga is an amazing singer. She really has singing talent. Madonna could never sing. She's a talentless has-been who hasn't been relevant in decades. Lady Gaga has dethroned the old whore. She is Queen of Pop. She reigns supreme at the top. Gaga has real singing talent. She is known throughout the world. She writes her own songs. She sings live. Lady Gaga is incredible singing live. Gaga is Queen of Pop.



  80. 80

    Re: moonwalker4 – 78 - The queen of music is number one everywhere. She has taken over music. She rules. Lady Gaga fucking r o c k s ! ! !



  81. 81

    Re: tellall – LolZ!! I knew it!! You really hate FACTS!! Keep spewing, goober!! Madonna and her 300 million albums, boo boo!! Lmfao!!



  82. 82

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – 81 - Gaga has dethroned Madonna. She is queen of pop. Lady Gaga is the number one female artist of all time. She reigns at the top. She has taken over music. Lady Gaga writes amazing music. :)



  83. 83

    Keep them coming, Gaga. We all love you!



  84. 84

    Madonna fans HATE the fact that Rolling Stone magazine hailed Gaga as queen of pop. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a fucking bunch of whining losers!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gaga is QUEEN OF POP. Madonna fans are scared shitless of the Queen of Pop. They're so fucking scared of Gaga. Because she's queen. Madonna fans are fucking has-beens. HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  85. 85

    Re: tellall – wow you're so persistent, does posting over and over really do anything for you? even the "haters" don't waste their time as much as you are, all you're doing is getting Perez paid and people that didn't like gaga still don't like her so you're really not useful at all…



  86. 86

    Re: justtospeaktruth – 854 - Gaga is an amazing singer. She really has singing talent. She is the queen of pop. Lady Gaga is the number one female artist of all time. She is the greatest star on the planet. ;)



  87. 87

    Lady Gaga has dethroned the old whore. Madonna is a washed-up old hasbeen. Madonna hasn't been relevant in years. Lady Gaga has taken over music. Anna Wintour loves Gaga. The Lady has conquered fashion too.

    Gaga on Kimmel: youtube.com/watch?v=8Br00Wqi33o

    She's AMAZING singing live: youtube.com/watch?v=ocEPkkq0QWI



  90. 90

    none of these singers are "queens" at all. theyre all talentless bitches with inflated egos. and to all of you that wana bow down to the illuminati princesses, you are so mindless especially when you guys bicker like little bitches. it all adds up to the conclusion that you all have really bad taste in music. the end.



  91. 91

    ok first of all.."music hasn't been this exciting in a while" um actuallhy, i don't find extreme overuse of autotune to be all that exciting. second of all, "pop stars can’t be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models". is she seriously insinuating that she along with kesha and katy perry are role models?



  92. 92

    Music fucking sucks today, how dare Rihanna put the words exciting and music to describe herself and the so call pack. Bunch of talentless hacks and when has she ever been a role model? Parents look at rihanna and tell their kids don't be like her. Along with the rest of them who spend most of their time half nake on stage to sell albums. No one takes these so call "artist" seriously they are just for the moment "artist" until something new comes along.



  93. 93

    if these are the queens of pop then music is truly dead. Where's Chris Brown we need him to knock some sense into this bitch.



  94. 94

    Re: Robdawg – LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  95. 95

    Lady Gaga's songs are fantastic! I love them!!!



  96. 96

    No offense but if that title still meant anything, none of those people would be the "queen of pop"..they are auto-tuned like a mug, can't dance and good god they dress like straight up sluts! (Rihanna and lady Gaga especially) They don't look like stage outfits..just slutty material and wtf is she talking about music hasn't been this exciting in a while? Some people are so far up their own ass.. the only ones who were really good at pop to me was old Madonna, old Britney and old Christina.. all these new hoes and new songs are catchy but no staying power..nothing memorable..
    and yeah she did forget Britney, you know the one you collaborated with and made your song "S&M" go to #1?
    These new chicks are just not artists..nothing creative on their own..-_-



  97. 97

    Re: Manda756 – Um yeah I kinda have to disagree with you. Britney whether you may think she's talented or not, is still very relavent. My 10 year old sister knows her music and she doesn't know anyone outside of the disney channel/nickelodeon circle with the exception of you know katy perry, kesha and gaga and she's well aware of britney spears. she doesn't even know who rihanna or beyonce are, so for her to know who britney spears is so that makes britney just a little bit more in the pack than rihanna or beyonce. because while rihanna and beyonce are definitely pop queens among their older audience demographic, britney spears is huge among all ages just like lady gaga, kesha and katy perry which makes just as much part of the pack.



  98. 98

    and before you say anything about it, i definitely should have proof read before submitting, I was going back and retyping different things, but I think its clear what I'm trying to say lol.



  99. 99

    Re: marciepink – Brit fuckin' rules. Let us see what RiRi is doing in 5 years!! Rockstar!! Yeah. LolZ!!
