We REALLY hope that this was taken out of context. Singer Rihanna tells Look Magazine:
“There’s nobody really in my league. There’s competition everywhere. The whole music industry is competition. There are people who like other artists, those who like me and others who like both. Beyonce is a great artist, and I feel honored to be mentioned in the same sentence, but we’re different performers with different styles.”
She goes on to say that the one artist she admires most is Madonna. We think Rihanna might want to take a long hard look at her career, which only started in 2005, before she starts rattling off such egotistical nuggets like that. Guess she’s never heard of Lady Gaga? Or Katy Perry? Although they both write their own material, so maybe she’s right in that there’s no one in the league of currently super successful singers who don’t write their own material, don’t produce music and don’t play an instrument. Oh nevermind, Britney’s in that category & she’s been doing it better and for more than twice as long.
