"Blog is a community for people who don't have anything else to do and hate themselves" Rihanna

Sheepish: The singer looked a little bashful appearing on BET's 106 & Park in New York yesterdaySheepish: The singer looked a little bashful appearing on BET's 106 & Park in New York yesterday
"I read the blogs sometimes, it depends on what it is I am trying to find out. I’m a lot more numb to it now only because I understand what it is. It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves, they hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are so what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities. It seems impossible to ever have the opportunity to say these things to their face, so they get to hide behind their computer." Rihanna said in a recent radio interview with Ed Lover

I hear you Rihanna but please give me the computer over that red hair any day...
Lol. *just kidding*

    I think she meant blog visitors, not bloggers. Cos some people leave very hateful comments. Nigerian blogs are even alright, some of the american one's are filled with so much hate like MTO, Perez Hilton (b4 revamping his image)...

    But i agree Linda, that red hair has got to go! and i don't like her hair long, she should go back to her cropped do abeg.

    to an extent she is saying the truth...most bloggers have nothing to do...i mean i only blog when i don't have much work from school...some days i just go AWOL.However i think there are more blogger who love themselves than hate, not all blogs are about hate and celebrities. Bloggin was not invented to bash celebrities or people, it was just a way to blog about your thoughts.on that note, i also think rihanna is crazy...look at her! ppl will always talk riri when u r wearing a "fuck you" necklace on ur neck and u can't sing or have any talent.

    yea @Teefar, ur right, she's talking to blog readers and not bloggers. Blogging is great and its a way of reaching out to diff people all over the world with what u have to share.

    LOL- but she's right naw- especially gossip blogs. That's what they are about- GOSSIP.

    But there are other types of blogs such as political and social blogs so she shouldn't generalize.

    i don't advocate hateful blogging HOWEVER if bloggers and those who visit those blogs stopped talking about these celebrities, if tabloid mags became non existent, some of these "celebrities" would be extinct including Rhianna whose music is not exactly considered classic or vintage music that will stand the test of time. if the tabloid stopped writing about her and her near naked antics, she will disappear because her music is not captivating so she should just stop sniffing red dye and talking nonsense.

    First of all Riri you need to stop hanging out with the *RED* light district girls. Anyways i agree with her statement bout 60%, but i still feel that statement was to spite bloggers. Like in her song HARD, she shoots this line- "where them girls talking trash (2ce) where they at (2ce) where them blog girls at....."so i feel she's all out to get back at the bloggers who keep posting neg. stories bout her. There's nothing hateful bout being a blogger, i mean i can put thumbs up for Bella naija and Linda Ikeji (lov u Linda), they do have a life.
    However i think Riri needs another encounter with Chris brown, i mean just maybe we ll' get that pon'de replay girl we all fell in love with years back.

    Totally wrong...might be true bout some people ooo...but i enjoy writing..xcept someone pushes me, i myt never write a book, i don't have time for a real proof-check so i might never publish an acceptable magazine-though i'm doing one for the church now ooo...so quick one Riri- Wise adults never generalize while they talk esp sensitive stuff cos you're wrong about me and many others. i've made wonderful friends that blog and who obviously don't hate themselves. EG Myne, Nitty gritty, Sugarking, etc Check their blogs Riri and you'd wish you were living their lives. Riri, i used to love you till now....i guess i just like you now- cos no, it ain't all about you!

    She's generalizing, her comments may apply to certain blogs. There are some pretty serious blogs out there that discuss real issues especially politics..she might need to widen her blog horizon a little bit..

    Rihanna is not well educated and cannot write a blog. Most people from her country are drop-outs and hemp smokers.

    She was just lucky that Jay-Z picked her from the rubble. When Beyonce did not trust her with Jay-Z, she quickly married Jay-Z.

    No wonder Chris Brown punched that nasty mouth of hers. Silly girl, without make-up she is plain stupid.

    Ri Ri shud have specified because there are numerous blogs out there on other topics such as politics, current events,sports, lifestyle and so on.

    Rihanna comes off a bit ignorant here but she is a celebrity so I guess she's generalizing to celebrity gossip blogs. With the likes of Perez Hilton, I don't blame her.

    Rihana should know that there are many better things she can get from blog beyond gossips as she affirmed that she reads it somtimes, ...that a fruit on a tree is bad doesn't mean all the fruits on that tree is bad, ...she should get a better life and talk wisely!

    She is talking about bloggers like Sandra Rose and Perez Hilton.

    Life or know life for these bloggers blogging is a full time job and they are handsomely rewarded for it. Sheeeet I'd talk even more shit than they do if I were getting those kinda cheques. True talk. These people do not blog for free for the fun of it. They are getting paid.

    And for anonymous that said,

    "Most people from her country are drop-outs and hemp smokers."

    What kind of a stupid, ignorant, small minded generalisation is that? Are you Bajan? Do you know any Bajans? Have you been to Barbados? IDIOT. Your mouth is just clacking like a typewriter and you know not what you speak about.
