Rihanna’s got a lot going on right now.. but two things you should not be expecting from Rihanna are a Rated R re-release and a tell-all autobiography. Bossip has learned the singer is planning a new album though, details on that — and a video of her dancing it up with Alan Carr — on the flipside.
Rihanna recently shut down speculation that she was preparing a ‘name and shame’ book about her life:
“It would be a very long book, and it’s not in the plan right now,” Showbiz Spy quotes her as saying. “Anyway, the world knows a little too much about me at the moment… I don’t think they need to know any more. But if I change my mind I’ll let you know.”
And in album news:
Ne-yo and David Guetta both came forward to say that they will be working on new music with Rihanna. Rihanna also spoke last week to MTV about wanting her new album to be more poppy, energetic and fun. It appears the singer is pretty much over ‘Rated R’, with ‘Rude Boy’ believed to be the FINAL single from the project.
Rihanna was in a very dark place when she recorded ‘Rated R’ and the mood is reflected in the music. Now that she is over ‘the incident’, she wants to put out more ‘dance’-inspired music in the same formats of ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ and ‘Disturbia’. She also wants to shred the dark music to go back to making go-happy upbeat pop songs like on ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. And since she is working with Guetta, it looks like this is what we’ll be getting.
Apparently, the label are not happy with the massive investments they put in as they were expecting the project to pull in bigger numbers after her massive 20/20 interview. After she spilled the beans about Chris Brown and recieved the biggest promo campaign that mankind could give, first week sales and overall sales in the US did not match the hype, although ‘Rated R’ is doing brilliantly worldwide. The new album and tour is said to be taking priority after promotion ends.
And now what you all have
NOT been waiting for … Rihanna’s visit to Alan Carr:
We’re not sure whether we should be more embarrassed for him and his dance moves or her and that hideous knit sweater/drawls outfit? Rihanna — we know this is no pants thing is a trend but a long-sleeved two piece romper set? What is that? Where do they do that at???
