    She looks like an overly horny mentally challenged train wreck.

    HER VOCALS SUCK AS USUAL… YOU CAN TELL THE AUDIO EDITING AND AUTO-TUNE EVERY FREAKING WHERE.

    As much as I love Rihanna, don't you mean shipped 300K copies, which is what platinum is in the UK? It didn't even sell that many copies in the US.

    What was for dinner…..Rihanna lying on a dinner table naked with whip cream & sprinkles all over her body?

    In other words, 300,000 people in the UK are seriously mentally ill and should not be outside of the insane asylums.

    it shipped 300k and sold 160k

    LOL. Thank you. I usually think she looks pretty but this photo is hilarious!

    Certification is based on shipments, not sales. She shipped 300K, but she will likely sell more than that in a few weeks. Europe loves her.

    no it hasnt SOLD that many. Certificates are about albums being shipped out not actual sales.



  12. 12

    I like how you dont mention her US sales predicted around 200k. Thats pretty bad for a supposed huge star with no1 record.



  13. 13

    Rihanna officially sold 163000 in UK first week. Almost half what you suggest. Still impressive but not 300k!

    Rihanna's a star because of the success of her singles not her albums (which have still managed to sell very well consistently. They might not be huge mega-star Madonna-esque numbers but they don't have to be because they're still more than enough to expect that she'll be making plenty more in the future). Rihanna generates plenty (PLENTY) of money for herself, her label, all her handlers and everyone else in her camp. A platinum certification is just a little bit of icing on the cake, the difference between units sold and units shipped might as well be a splitting hairs because she's a legit attraction, sells out arenas, and the only numbers she's counting are the ones in her bank account . That's not a commentary on quality or talent that's just the way it is. Not a huge fan of her myself but she's success ful as hell and he popularity is far from declining so if you don't like her stop paying attention or suffer through it cuz she's not going anywhere for a while

    She has 1 hit per album.



  16. 16

    her uk actual sales were 163k. lame… i remember Perez calling Britney numbers disapointing… and it was 276k!! wont u say that about RiRi??? =/

    Doesn't matter. With the the exception of Adele and Amy Winehouse, the UK has shit music so her being certified platinum over there isn't a huge accomplishment. My dog could go platinum in the UK.
