Rihanna represents for me a perfect artist. First of all, she is hot! Then, musically, we can say that there is a talent with this amazing voice mixing R'nB, pop and reggea and finally, rumors of her potential bisexuality bring the bonus.
Rihanna started very young to be interested by the music, we can say that she was and she is always a real passionate of music.
Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys are her favorite artists but far behind her preferred and greater source of inspiration, Britney Spears.
It is in 2003 that the serious things started for her when during a song's contest she met the producer Evan Rogers. She was only 15 years old.
Immediately she took a plane to come in New-York, Rihanna is actually from Barbados, located at the border of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. A first group of songs were recorded.
Jay-Z, rapper and producer of the label Def Jam, listened her and falled under the charm of her voice. Under contract with him, Rihanna released her first single Pon de Replay. Listen it, it's good music! We can truly hear the Caribbean music.
This song was a success so the album Music of the Sun was released in 2005, it was the first album of Rihanna who was 17 years old.
Music of the Sun is a mix of reggae, R&B with some pop which is the kind of music that Rihanna continues to offer. And of course, the album was also a success.
After that, A Girl Like Me was released in 2006 with particularly the song S.O.S, then Rated R in 2009 was her darker album because it followed her aggression. In this album, we discovered a song we like all a lot, specially the video, yes I'm talking about Te Amo. This clip, made in France with as guest Laeticia Casta, a french ex-model who became an actress of talent, offers sensual scenes:
Finally her last album, Loud, that we can listen since November 2010 a little bit everywhere with Only Girl (In The World), What' s My Name? or S&M,… happier and funnier album finishing with a song that I like a lot, Skin, that I propose to listen at the end of this article.
It was in 2009 that Rihanna said that everyone had the "ability to be attracted to both sexes" calling actress Megan Fox "yummy". She wanted to play in a movie a lesbian killer, with Megan Fox as her girlfriend. Recently, a rumor appeared in the media launched by the openly lesbian singer, Tajah Burton, about the potential bisexuality of Rihanna.
Even if she didn't give any name she said she had an affair with a female singer from Barbados and there are not 100 female singers from Barbados.
Burton also told The Sun newspaper: "We had an amazing connection. We would order food in together, we watched TV together, we did all kinds of stuff. I listened to her music with her. Music is her life. It became a sexual thing. It only lasted a couple of weeks because she was very busy and had a lot going on in her life and we had to be secretive." before to add: "I would say she's bisexual. It was really exciting. It was unexpected and it was very fun. The sex was really good but there was more to it - we really had a connection. She inspired me and we helped uplift each other."
Rihanna said: "I could see myself in a relationship with a girl."
And you, do you think she's bisexual (or lesbian)? Or do you wish she is? Or is it a big publicity act from Tajah Burton to make people hear about her music?
There are too much rumors whatever the affair with Burton was real or not, there is also Nicki Minaj who said she was not her room-matt: “No, we' re just sex partners,” adding Rihanna was “the best fondler ever”. So I don't know but I think she's bisexual or at least, I like the idea she could be.
