Rihanna: ‘I’ve become a square. I hate partying’ & never get any action

Rihanna

I honestly don’t know what’s going on with Rihanna. These are photos of RiRi looking pained while performing at a Sunday post-Grand Prix concert in Singapore. She’s wearing an oversized t-shirt that may or may not be themed for the race. Whatever the case, it’s not a flattering look, but Rihanna hasn’t been much for flashing the flesh lately. I definitely noticed last month when she started dressing down and stopped begging for attention. One of the comments to said post joked how Miley Cyrus might have scared the pants back onto RiRi. It’s possible.

Anyway, Rihanna was slammed for forgetting words to her own songs in Singapore where she seemed “high.” (Higher than usual?) She’s in Australia right now where she earned terrible reviews for her Wednesday show. Supposedly RiRi acted “disinterested,” slurred her words, and ignored her own singles in favor of “that reggae sh-t.” All of which made for an unimpressed and “bored” audience. These reports come on the heels of RiRi’s gross tweets about going out to an adult club in Phucket where strippers shot darts out their hoo-has.

Rihanna is set to appear on the 100th episode of Alan Carr’s crazy-ass Chatty Man show (Channel 4 in the UK). Maybe she pre-taped the episode since she’s on tour. RiRi claims to be done with the party scene. She also says she doesn’t get laid. Hmm:

Rihanna

She’s tired of clubbing & partying: “Recently I’ve become a square. I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels — I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it. I don’t know if it’s because it’s the same music every night — maybe we need some more DJs.”

Never say never: “I love what I do and I’ve got a lot to celebrate. So you’ll catch me celebrating every once in a while, because I work hard.”

She’s not getting any action these days: “I am such a bootleg rock star, I do nothing, literally. ‘’m embarrassed to say that actually. That’s so disgusting. That’s f—ing pathetic. I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently. Don’t feel bad for me, I’m good.”

[From Alan Carr: Chatty Man

What I'm gathering from these quotes is RiRi basically sits around hotel rooms and gets baked. More baked than usual if her shows are any indication. I guess this is preferable to landing in the hospital after the Met Gala. It's also been about a year since she trashed a nightclub and pulled the "Don't you know who I am?" card. I guess baked Rihanna seems preferable to drunk RiRi.

As for Rihanna's claims of never getting any action, that's probably true while she's on tour. I never know whether Rihanna is off or on with Drake. She was rumored to have been dating A$AP Rocky (and kisses him in his new video), but who knows.

    I really thought that you’re gonna mention about her feud with Teyana Taylor..

    • Monie says:

      You have to go to Bossip and Rhymes With Snitch for that. lol. Here Rihanna is a delicate flower acting out only because of her relationship with Chris Brown.

      • Naye in VA says:

        Lol. I laughed at that “off and on with Drake” statement. It’s like nobody over here knows that she’s smashing everybody.

      • AlmondJoy says:

        @Monie Lol also necolebitchie.com and sandrarose.com. You can read the full story there. This is def not the place to come if you want good urban gossip.

      • cs says:

        Actually, Lainey covered some of it on her blog yesterday. Not to degree of the urban sites but I was shocked to say the least.
        She usually only reports on people no one cares about or heard of.

      • Angel May says:

        Late to the party as usual. Lainey might bear a grudge against Rihanna from the time she tweeted a pick of a pack of rice cakes made up to look like Karruche Tran.

        I used to give Rihanna a pass cause of her youth, but using your wealth to shade somebody like she did with this Taylor chick is uncool.

      • Mia says:

        I know. Bossip and Sandrarose are ratchet as hell, but they do give me all the info I want to know about black celebs.

    • jaye says:

      That’s probably because very few people on this site know who Teyana Taylor is.

      • bns says:

        And no one wants to know.

        Teyana made a much bigger deal out of that fight than necessary. Rihanna can be an asshole, but she didn’t seem to be taking it as seriously as Teyana was.

      • Naye in VA says:

        I feel like if you come for me unnecessarily, or without provocation, i can make as big a deal out of it as I want. Standard bullies, talk crap then back up and say “get over yourself”, and then continue to bully or harass. And Rihanna’s team does that ALL the time. Good for Teyana for not backing down.

      • bns says:

        @Naye

        It wasn’t without provocation, though. Teyana has talked about Rihanna on Twitter before, but Rihanna never responded. Twitter fighting is stupid, though.

      • Mika says:

        @bns Wow, I didn’t know that. I thought RiRi was the one who started it. I’m not on any social network other than Tumblr so I don’t really know much.

      • jaye says:

        @Naye…I agree. Rihanna posted a video that was clearly mocking a video of Teyana singing. I don’t blame Teyana for going back at her. Rihanna is a classic mean girl.

      • jaye says:

        @bns…This particular incident, however, was unprovoked.

      • BlackMamba says:

        Teyana was definitely justified in going after Ri this time, because this particular incident was unprovoked but you can tell that she’s been wanting to go off on Ri for a while. She took it ran with it, she even called a radio station yesterday to talk about it.

      • livinglavitalola says:

        Oh, please. I follow teyana and there has been absolutely nothing on her twitter about Rihanna. So sick of rihanna fans using that ‘well, they started it’ line anytime she pulls crap like this. It’s high school and, most times, a complete lie.

        Even if u don’t follow teyana, just by reading the first couple of tweets about the vid, u can tell it was unprovoked. Rihanna loves to provoke people and then when they snap back they r in the wrong. So, tired of this never ending victim crap w/her.

    • BlackMamba says:

      That feud was so entertaining. I love RiRi but she can a real be bully. The best part of the feud is when she compared her 90 million net worth to Teyana’s 500 000, to which Teyana responded:

      “Ya net worth & ya body count go neck to neck. #IndustryP-ssy”
      “90 million dollars & 90 million dudes diving in that b—h box.”

      *DEAD*

      • HH says:

        Dang! Talk about going for the jugular.

        Rihanna unknowingly confirmed her own sleeping around a while back. Back when her an Chris Brown were doing the on/off thing, she unfollowed him on Twitter after he tweeted something like “she’s not yours if she’s everybody else’s.” He made no mention of names or anything (as if people didn’t know), but still.

      • jaye says:

        The whole Ciara started when Ciara went on Fashion Police and recounted a story about how Rihanna was rude to her at an award show. It was a complete non sequitur that even had Joan looking at her like “WTF”?

      • Jaquebelle says:

        Team Teyana all the way!!! Hopefully Rihanna will use some of her 90 million net worth to purchase some glue to put her face back together after getting her face cracked!!! Note to Rihanna: Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing!!! One love.

  2. Sephora Wilson says:

    Maybe if she stopped shading other artist she could work on being a better performer.

  3. ann says:

    I don’t get her appeal. She’s such a mess and a stupid one at that

  4. Susie Q says:

    Uh, didn’t I just read that she had an overdose the other day and would have been dead if she had have been alone instead of with friends?

    • QQ says:

      As per CDAN (irrespective of what lots of you here think about CDAN, he seems to be right on the money with that Beyonce Bodyguard gross story/ the Simon Cowell harem mess, shit, even Rihanna and Fists Brown about 6 months before they started that kissing and being seen together at award shows!) she started messing a while back with Acid and heavy drugs and indeed forgetting song lyrics and banishing people from her inner circle who called her on the drug use… And also Eminem messed with her and she couldn’t let it go

  5. LadyJane says:

    I never thought I would say these words: “Rihanna is channeling Richard Simmons in these photos”

  6. Eleonor says:

    I’d love to say she is finally moving on, but she is on the highway to become an addict 24/h.

  7. LadyMTL says:

    Maybe she just needs a break? I’m not a huge fan of hers but I don’t dislike her either, so I’m thinking she might be burnt out (or baked out, lol) and need a rest.

    • HH says:

      That’s what I’ve been thinking for a while now. Hasn’t she been on tour FOREVER?! Maybe these are multiple tours somewhat closely together, but it just feels non-stop.

  8. jaye says:

    I think she and Drake are f*ck buddies.

  9. Leila in Wunderland says:

    I have such mixed feelings about Rihanna. There are things about her that I dislike and that make want to not like her- the taking back of Chris Brown, and some things that she has said to and about people. But I also like some of her music, some of her style, and have a love/hate relationship with her attitude.
    I wish her well though, and I hope she doesn’t end up messing up or ruining her life.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      That’s sort of how I feel about her. She does a lot of things I hate, but I can’t hate her. Maybe I’m seeing a light that isn’t there, but there’s just something about her that makes me feel protective or fond of her in spite of herself. Not that she would care one way or the other, I’m sure.

  10. CaribbeanLaura says:

    I think that she has been on a spiral for a long time, which is a shame cause I think she is a decent talent and combined with that face she’s gold. Unfortunately I’m sure she surrounds herself with lackeys and yes men and there’s no one there to slap a bit of sense into her.

    • cs says:

      I really Like Rihanna but I have to agree with you. Why does this only happen to the women? Rihanna hasn’t been right since CB, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake..She was never the same after they broke up. Nicole Kidman started F**kin with her face after Tom and Demi Moore started sniffing glue and drinking heavily after Ashton. Yet the men keep trolling along.

      • TG says:

        I think you ate onto something about the men messing up the women’s psyche after a breakup. I hadn’t realized all these men sucking the life out of women. Info know the anyone who dates it married Justin Timberdouche is damaged goods. Cameron Diaz has never been the same since.

  11. whipmyhair says:

    She’s touring in Australia? I had no idea she was here. Pink has been touring here for weeks and it was a HUGE deal. Pink is probably the most popular pop star in Australia. RiRi can’t compete.

    • The Wizz says:

      Perth yesterday, Adelaide today. The hoopla about One Direction has probably shadowed her visit.

    • Lucrezia says:

      Pink is massive here, mostly because she puts on enough shows that everyone gets to see her – this tour it’s 45 shows!

      I don’t really understand how they figure out the money for short tours. It’s bloody expensive to come to Perth. Ticket sales for a single concert wouldn’t cover the cost of shipping everything/everyone over. Theoretically it’d gain her increased album sales, but how can you be sure? Pink’s multiple-show strategy seems to be much sounder economics.

    • nmatz says:

      She was 1 hour and 45 mins late for the Adelaide show apparently! Reactions on fb are very negative, sounds like a mess. I saw her here in adelaide last time she came and she was actually not bad (I got my tickets for free though so wasn’t expecting much), wonder what’s happened?

  12. paola says:

    Erhm…… rock star???

  13. crab says:

    Maybe she hasn’t been showing any skin and is dressing like that because she gained weight and she’s covering it up!

    • pfeiffer87 says:

      I actually think it’s because she’s in Singapore – and performers are usually asked to dress more conservatively over there – Malaysia too.

  14. bns says:

    Whatever, I love her. She’s so damn cute and I never understood why people have such a problem with her partying.

    If I had her looks, money, and access I’d be doing it, too.

  15. Dawn says:

    LOL. Who is trying to fool? She hits on anything that moves be it male or female. Those pictures are gross.

  16. Jayna says:

    I think she is very depressed over her Chris Brown breakup and self-medicating in many ways more than usual and just in a deep depression. You never heard all these complaints the tour before

  17. Elisabeth says:

    the part of Whitney Houston will now be played by Rhianna

  18. gg says:

    I absolutely knew she would stop dressing so slutty after she saw the Miley performance. The epiphany read clear on her face: ugh – any ole ho can do that, I guess I better stop.

  19. Amanduh says:

    Baked anyone is better than drunk someone…

  20. AlmondJoy says:

    A$AP Rocky is has been dating Chanel Iman for awhile and Drake recently confirmed on Ellen that there’s absolutely nothing going on between him and Rihanna.

  21. nancypants says:

    My 80-year-old mom wears stockings like that under her crop/capri pants.

  22. Nicolette says:

    Maybe there’s the chance she’s outgrowing the partying scene like a lot of people do.

  23. pfeiffer87 says:

    She’s showing less skin cos she’s in singapore – I’m pretty syre Bey did the same the other day too – not sure if it’s some sort of religious dress code thing.

    • Jade says:

      Nah I think she just couldn’t be bothered to dress up. Singaporean here. Christianity and Islam over here is pretty moderate so there’s not much fuss over Western or Eastern artistes sexing it up. Indonesia and Malaysia are stricter. Even the local Chinese majority artistes dress more risqué than what she was wearing.

  24. Adrien says:

    Friends who watched her concert in Manila said her show was lackluster, she phoned it in the whole time. Same can be said in her Singaporean leg. Shame, she has a huge fanbase in Asia.

  25. misswendy says:

    Interesting, she’s playing in my home town tonight where she went on nearly an hour and a half late and completely drunk so I call bs on no more partying…

  26. Tania says:

    She’s just trying to save face. I don’t know, I feel like she crossed the line into crazy recently. Like Lauren Hill crazy. Sinead O’Connor crazy. I think her behaviour is reflective of a massive underlying problem. I don’t even see her as attractive anymore. I just see huge issues. It’s too bad.

  27. IceQueen says:

    Drugs and depression.

  28. K.G. says:

    I saw her a couple of years ago and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. I liked her music before the concert but seeing her live blew my mind. I saw Lady Gaga the same summer and it didn’t come close. She had the arena spellbound. It was something else. The only other performer I’ve seen who had that same ability to have a giant arena in the palm of his hand is Prince. I’m not comparing her to Prince the legend, but the woman’s got chops.

    • realtalk says:

      @K.G. Just who are you speaking, because the only female performer that is on the heels of MJ/Prince is Beyoncé point blank period, then with that you can add Pink.

  29. Madriani's Girl says:

    I’m so sure she used the word “square”. And since when is she a “rock star” bootleg or otherwise???

  30. Evie says:

    I like Riri, despite her being an insecure bully. Homegirl, has been worked to death by her record label and she needs an extended vacation. She never sleeps and it seems like she’s been on tour for the majority of her career. No wonder she’s high all the time, that kind of schedule would be hell!

  31. Mika says:

    It’s been over with Drake for a long long time. He insinuated to a magazine recently that after she got back with Chris Brown he just couldn’t anymore.

  32. realtalk says:

    It’s so sad to say this, but if Rihanna don’t slow it down with all the drugs/drinking/partying, we all will be reading about her in the likes of how we read about Amy Winehouse/Whitney Houston.

  33. Mia says:

    I can see how she could be burned out, because I think she’s been partying for at least the past 6 or 7 years straight, lol. After I graduated from high school and kind of escaped my crazy strict parents clutches, I think I partied at least 4 times a week for about 3 years straight. Tuesday night parties, Thursday nights karaoke, Sunday nights gay bar, I was there. I got burned out, stopped clubbing for a few years, then last year I started partying again, lmao. She really might really just be taking a break from people and from the club right now. It happens.

  34. Naddie says:

    I went to her show in 2011 and wasn’t impressed. Then I went to a Beyonce’s show and saw what’s like to watch a real performer.

  35. bijlee says:

    I never know how celebrities “take a break.” Like what do they do? Do they just go back and party? Is there nothing they can do that can occupy their time? Like a hobby? a Skill? something besides vacationing in the south of france.
