Billboard r you guys serious? Didn't beyonce win the same billboard artiste of the decade last year? This is for this year jor, like someone said it's not about how much but how well, she doesn't stand a chance at the grammy, u can't compare riri's songs with beyonce or even compare her with beyonce, riri is wack on stage, she's trying too hard, albums every week(exaggerates)... Love her songs tho...

@Cantrmbrmy name...this early morning you don tear my bele with laff! LOL...really hopeless place o. @anon11:05, vocally Rih is better than Bey but packagically u cant compare o! That's why Bey can reel in the dollars that Rih can only dream of! Bey has never pretended to be a "vocal" person. Kharis

Plus Beyonce is more of R n B sef so being on this list with J.lo, Britney and the rest is kinda funny. She's an eccletic performer and holds the aces in other areas. Kharis

Lekwe lu mo!! Chris brown is nowhere on the top 20, sister Beyonce no 16? Na wa o! Nicki Minaj no show? That Rihanna reign just won't let up!! Big ups to the most hard working artiste in the music industry at the moment. If she brings out albums every year and they don't sell, she wouldn't be here. She puts out good work. *kudos*

Deedee25 said...

Beyoncé has tried joor! Her songs will last for generations and more! Beyoncé is in a whole different league. She has achieved more, she has more star power and respect. If Rihanna should take breaks like beyonce did, she will crumble! Rihanna releases albums every year if possible twice a year! Beyonce gives gaps.. Like every 2 years, and her songs are still hits! Billboard awarded her wit millenium award!they recongnize de force dat beyoncé is!

Naijababe said...

Go Rihanna, she's a STAR. Honestly, she has good songs and band. She doesn't have the best vocals, but girl knows how to deliver, great fashion style and confidence.

Deedee25 said...

What do you know about vocals? Have you heard Rihanna singn live? She's one of the worst singers on stage.. She has no technique, her stage voice is weak, and her notes are flying all over the place. BEYONCE is one of the Top 5 Best Vocalists alive! Her talent is pure, raw and powerful. Pls, get your facts right. Differentiate ur hatred 4 bey's songs and her amazing vocals!

Beyonce is actually R&B. Pop music is well popsicle. Pop music shouldn't be taken seriously. When Rihanna is #1 it's a fucking problem.

Anon 9:17AM what money are you talking about? You need to get your facts right before coming on a blog to release false information. Rih is #4 richest woman in Hollywood for 2012, Oprah is #1, Britney is #2, Taylor Swift #3, Ellen de Generres #4, Rihanna #4 http://www.forbes.com/pictures/mfl45llhd/rihanna-5/

Hater, Mr 911 what do you do for a living? How much money do you have that you have actually worked for? Rihanna is 24 and she's the #4 richest woman in hollywood and you that still ask your father for money to chop is busy drinking panadol on accomplished RihRih's headache. Grow up for your own good.

Just Me said...

Pls what is Janet Jackson doing on the list or Madonna, abeg, someone should pls flush their names off the list.

Thumbs up to my gurl, Riri and P!nk, love botha ya.

Jezz!! Beyonce has voltrons mehn!!! but voltrons 4 d right reasons, there is no comparing Riri and Mama Blue, as young as beyonce is, she is a Legend, and sorry to say, Rihanna at this rate of scandalousness (If there is a word like that) could never be a legend. #endofdiscussion
