After seeing her perform at the Rock in Rio last year, there is no doubt she is a lazy performer on stage for a full show. She lip syncs most of her songs, she has long intro to most of her songs that she is not onstage for without changing. She also uses a lot of audience sing alongs to her songs so she doesn't have to sing them. She also doesn't move a lot on stage mainly staying in one place.
They stuff she does in videos, special appearances and awards shows is not the real Rihanna. Go waste your money and see her live when she has to perform a full set. You will see what I am talking about.
I suggest you buy the dvd of her Rock in Rio performance before you spend any money on her new tour.
you guys dont know good talent if it jabbed you in the eye.. have some respect...losers
Sad people of her ilk are not making enough money in the entertainment industry. Rihanna and some other brown skin sistas are sticking around. Not a single dark skin sista can make it in today's image contest, whereas the true soulful sounds is going way by and bye.
In time the likes of Adele and Lady Gaga will have nothing from nobody to learn from.
