What Have You Done to Deserve a Rihanna Reggae Album and a Rihanna Pop Album? What Have You Done to Deserve a Rihanna Reggae Album and a Rihanna Pop Album?

It is a truth far from universally acknowledged that Rihanna’s ANTI is Rihanna’s most texturally interesting and compelling work to date. To that end, I’d follow Rihanna off a cliff. Which is why I’m over the moon to hear she’s allegedly working on a reggae album, a move that makes almost too much sense within the…

Once and For All, Rihanna Is In Fact Saying Actual Words On 'Work,' Dummies Once and For All, Rihanna Is In Fact Saying Actual Words On 'Work,' Dummies

When Rihanna first dropped the song “Work,” you probably saw approximately one thousand tweets by people who thought they were being clever talking about how she wasn’t saying words.

Gwen Stefani and This Swedish Lady Are Ripping Off Everybody Gwen Stefani and This Swedish Lady Are Ripping Off Everybody

Apparently, Swedish fans are mad because they think Gwen Stefani's new song, "Baby Don't Lie," is ripping off "Heartbreakfree," a song by Ji Nilsson. Having listened to both, I have come to the conclusion that they are both ripping off something, and that something is dancehall.

If you're looking for a fun night out on the town in Weston, Florida, you're going to have to search high and low. Thanks to a new city ordinance, nightclubs, dance halls, and skating rinks have been banned for eternity. Surely you've heard of the evil that roller skating invites? Yeah.
