Rihanna Explains Why She Never Stops Working Since Her Breakout Hit “Pon De Replay”

Published

on

Rihanna has never stopped working hard since getting her breakout hit “Pon De Replay” over a decade ago.

In her recent interview with Time magazine, Rihanna says she got a lot of hate after she released “Pon De Replay” with some folks suggesting that she would be a one-hit-wonder. That lit a fire in her, and since then she has never stopped working. We should all thank her haters because the Bajan pop star is now one of the biggest selling pop stars of all time, and now she is giving us more than just music. We’re getting films, makeup, and very soon, luxury fashion.

“I had a dream of making music; that’s it,” Rihanna said. “I didn’t even think about the fame part, and then that happened, and it’s like, ‘Do I really like this? How much do I really love music that I’m dealing with this?’ Then the one-hit-wonder comment came straight out of the gate and that put a fire under my ass, and I just never stopped working.”

Rihanna also pointed out that she hardly party these days, so she brought the fun to work with her. The good news is that she is close to finishing her highly anticipated reggae/dancehall album which she tentatively titled R9. She also shot down rumors that she has a Drake collaboration in the works.

Cardi B Gets A Tattoo Of Offset’s Name Where?

Cardi B gets a tattoo of Offset’s name on an unlikely place on her body.

Getting a tattoo of your spouse name is still a bit of a taboo idea since people often break up. Perhaps that’s the reason why Cardi B decided to get her tattoo at the back of her leg. We wouldn’t have seen the tat if Offset hadn’t posted a photo of her on his Instagram page. It almost seems deliberate that the Migos rapper posted the pic which was a screenshot from a FaceTime chat with his wife.

“CANT WAIT TO GET HOME,” the “Taste” rapper wrote while alluding to his excitement in seeing his name tatted on his wife body.

In 2018, Offset got a tattoo of Cardi B’s name on his neck shortly after the two hit a rough patch in their marriage. He also got himself a tattoo of The Powerpuff Girls, which is Cardi’s favorite cartoon character.

The power couple recently threw a huge birthday party for their daughter Kulture in New York City to celebrate her first birthday. Time does fly fast, because it’s been a year since Cardi B and Offset welcomed their first child together. The couple dropped a whopping $400,000 on her birthday bash and spent an additional $100,000 on a custom diamond necklace for the toddler.

Of course, that’s a small change for Cardi, who recently revealed that she is making up to a million dollars per show performing at some major music festivals this summer.

Comedy Central Drops XXXTentacion Death Joke, Comedian Apologize Amidst Backlash

Published

A comedian had a change of heart about making a joke out of XXXTentacion’s tragic death.

Dina Hashem issued an apology after she received backlash for a joke she made about the murder of South Florida rapper XXXTentacion. On Friday a clipped surfaced of Hashem’s set as a preview for Comedy Central’s “This Week at the Comedy Cellar.” In it, Hashem makes light of the robbery/murder incident that ended XXXTentacion’s life.

“Is anyone still mourning XXXTentacion?” she asked the crowd, some of whom responded “yeah.” “He’s a rapper who was murdered, he’s dead now. He was shot, he was on his way to buy a car with $50,000 in cash and somebody shot him and took the money. Which is very tragic, but I think also it would be a very good Venmo commercial, you know? The first thing I thought when I heard that. Like,’I don’t have Venmo. I should get Venmo.”

Once the clip went viral, the comedian was scolded by XXXTentacion’s fanbase who felt it was insensitive to laugh about the rapper’s death that is still fresh in a lot of folks minds. Other comedians, however, came to Hashem’s defense.

Nevertheless, Comedy Central pulled the joke, according to The Blast, and has since deleted the clip from their social media page.

On Saturday, Hashem issued an apology via her Instagram page, after making her Twitter account private.

“I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone’s feelings that’s never what I want,” she wrote in a statement. “I’m a comic and use jokes to make dark topics less painful, but I realize not everyone feels that way, and don’t want anyone to feel badly. It was taken down and won’t air on TV.”

Many people on Twitter criticized Comedy Central for cutting the joke, citing that there was no room for sensitivity in the art of comedy. Others defended Hashem saying the hip-hop community has no right to be upset or offended because of the genre’s history of glorifying violence.

Last week, a posthumous XXXTentacion dancehall record was released titled “Royalty” featuring Vybz Kartel, Stefflon Don, and Ky-Mani Marley.

Aidonia Makes Surprised Appearance At Reggae Sumfest

Aidonia fans were elated this weekend at the Reggae Sumfest Dancehall night when the artiste made a surprise appearance.

Genna Genna fans were disappointed to previously learn that the “Banga” hitmaker wasn’t a part of the line-up this year. However, they were put at ease when mere days before the show, Sumfest Chief, Joe Bogdanovich alluded to Aidonia becoming a last minute addition to the show, or at the very least, would make a surprise appearance. He told the STAR “I was in the park the other day, and at sunset, often the birds like to hang out there and chit-chat…and I don’t know what they have for this Donia kid, but boy, they couldn’t stop talking about him.”

Dancehall fans everywhere were pleased to find out that Aidonia was one of the tricks up Sumfest’s sleeve. Midway his set, Govana took off his tailored jacket before handing off the microphone to the Genna boss at the side of the stage. By then, the energy at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex was electrifying, and that’s before the dancehall giant uttered a word.

Two years ago it was Aidonia who was introducing Dancehall artiste “Govana” to the scene when he brought him out during his 2017 Reggae Sumfest performance. Since then the pair have created several hit Dancehall collabs, and Govana has been unstoppable. It was great to watch Govana bring out Didi during his own set. It signifies not only his undeniable rapid growth in Dancehall but also the obvious mutual respect that these Genna Genna DJs have.

Aidonia wore a black shirt with a sporty hijab, black pants and a red bulletproof vest with the word “Genna” in black, and Govana wore a brown plaid vest suit. The two performed all their hit collabs together effortlessly. The two DJs seemed to be having more fun than the event’s patrons as they danced, smiled, and performed new and old songs sending fans into a frenzy.

This was undoubtedly one of the more pleasant surprises from Dancehall night.
