  3. Hi guys! Some of you got a special behind-the-scenes access to something we've been working on for some time now. In the world where everyone use social media we've thought that RD can't be all like it's still 2009. We need to become a social media tool on our own. This is why we've decided to convert our website to a forum... this way everything on the website can be connected to your user account. You can also be part of this community and we hope you will participate in the forum to exchange your thoughts about Rihanna. We're not sure yet if this is the final look of the upcoming RD - this is why we're hoping for your feedback.

  11. Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid recounts meeting Rihanna for the first time in this exclusive excerpt from his memoir Sing to Me: My Story of Making Music, Finding Magic, and Searching for Who's Next. At Island Def Jam, Jay Z, whom I'd hired to be president of Def Jam, became one of my great teachers. When he first brought Rihanna into the office for an audition in February 2005, we worked like a team. I first laid eyes on her in the hallway. I didn't know she was a singer or anything, just a pretty girl standing outside somebody's office. Then Jay Z burst into my office. "You have to see this girl," he said.We went back to his office and he introduced me. She was a startlingly beautiful 17-year-old from Barbados. She opened her audition with a Beyoncé song, singing, but the whole time piercing me with these laser eyes. I saw her determination, her commitment. I saw someone who was going to be a big star someday. My head was spinning. She sang another song, "Pon De Replay," that would become her first hit. After she was done, I looked at Jay Z. "Don't let her leave the building," I said. I left it to Jay Z's guys to close the deal, and she signed her contract that day. After signing Rihanna, Jay Z and his team did the A&R for her first album, and I had nothing to do with it. The funny thing about Rihanna's success was that we signed two girls at that time -- Rihanna and a lovely young lady named Teairra Mari. We had an in-house company showcase and Beyoncé happened to be there with Jay Z. Teairra Mari, Rihanna, a four-girl group called Black Butterfly and Ne-Yo performed. At the label, we thought Teairra Mari would be the big star. We spent more time on her, did more work on her, paid more attention to her. Rihanna already had a hit with "Pon De Replay," but we still thought it was the other girl. A bell went off for me, however, when, after the showcase, Beyoncé came up to me. "That Rihanna girl," she said, "she's a beast." Source: Billboard

  15. The word “authenticity” came up about once every three minutes in all the discussions I had with social-media managers, experts, and the celebrities themselves—and, almost every time, my thoughts would turn to Rihanna. (To be fair, my thoughts turn to Rihanna immediately in almost all contexts.) In 2012, around the same time as the release of her seventh album, aptly titled Unapologetic, Rihanna’s social-media presence seemed to shift. Previously, the posts on her accounts had been bland and oriented around promoting her music, seemingly posted by her label. But, at about this point, as if the “real” Rihanna had been unlocked by some kind of video-game cheat code, the singer began posting content that felt, wholly, like “the real her.” She would share photos of silly and strange off-the-cuff moments with longtime friends; she would “clap back” to haters on Twitter; she would post video clips from raucous parties (and chill parties, too). She went from coming across as a cipher to . . . well, coming across like one of your friends from college who was always up to something wild, off to a warehouse party at two A.M. when you were ready to call it a night. Rihanna was not the first celebrity to embrace his or her “true” persona on social media, but her shift was one of the most pronounced, and indicative of an overall trend as celebrities moved away from working with consultancies, such as theAudience, and decided to take more control. Yes, they (in most cases) still had help, but it was handled less overtly. “Most of the celebrities that actually have been effective on [social media] definitely are willing to allow a pretty high level of transparency,” mused Frank Cooper, chief marketing officer at BuzzFeed (and formerly C.M.O. of global consumer engagement at PepsiCo), citing Rihanna and also Taylor Swift as celebrities who have managed to perfect the “authenticity” smoothie recipe, making their fan bases feel as if they know them intimately. “They don’t have to produce everything, but they need to be at the center of the interaction with their audience and with their followers.” Tania Yuki, founder and C.E.O. of Shareablee, which helps businesses process and parse social-media content, echoed Cooper’s take. “The whole challenge of celebrity in bygone eras was what you can manage to conceal from the public,” she told me. “It’s so interesting that now the challenge of celebrity is how to really open the floodgate and reveal as much as possible about how you’re living in the world.” But just because it seems organic and authentic—just because it would be nice to believe that Chris Hemsworth wants you to see his biceps curls because he has access to your dream journal and is willing to share that experience with you, or that Ariana Grande wants to live-stream a dance party with her backup dancers and friends because she wishes you were there bopping with them—doesn’t mean it’s really that simple. “No matter how organic it looks and feels, it’s no longer simply a person who happens to be famous generating content on a daily basis that they feel is interesting,” Cooper said. “That may be one part of it, but underneath it all there’s definitely the notion that this is a way to market their products. This is a way to build their ‘brand,’ a way to shore up their fan base.” And there are often many others involved. “These stars [now] have a lot of help from different people to publish this stuff,” Mulford said. “But they certainly don’t want anybody to know that someone is publishing on their behalf.” Yes, that “someone”: for artists who are touring, or working on location, or otherwise uninterested or occupied, the social-media manager often serves as translator, interpreter, gatekeeper, and Judy-Greer-supportive-best-friend character all in one. Full Story: Yes, that “someone”: for artists who are touring, or working on location, or otherwise uninterested or occupied, the social-media manager often serves as translator, interpreter, gatekeeper, and Judy-Greer-supportive-best-friend character all in one.
  16. Peter Berg is now releasing a new movie on his own (about Boston marathon tragedy) so I'm sure he will focus 100% on this
  17. Yeah, promotional pics are super expensive. I'm surprised they released so many
  18. That would be cool if MTV actually show music videos instead of reality shows
