This Old Clip of Rihanna Singing is the Real Reason for Side-Eye

Rihanna is one of the biggest rock stars at this point because she’s young, beautiful and loves mayhem. And she happens to sing. Or at least she gets on a stage with a mic and notes come out of her mouth. So in THAT regard, sure you can call her a singer. Just like you can call the author of “50 Shades of Gray” a writer because she picked up a pen.

I’d say “no shade” here but I just threw so much that shade that the stars are wondering if they need to come to my house to provide light.

ENNEHWEIGHS, I was sent a link to the video below (tweeted by Ri-ri’s archnemesis Teyana Taylor) and I laughed so hard I hurt my throat.

*DEAD* Rihanna outchea sounding like a dying cat who’s fighting against the inevitable. Like ma’am. Them high notes you’re tryna reach are running away from you. Stop chasing them. “There’s a hero” who realized she couldn’t sing this song so she didn’t attempt it. I’m just saying.

But what made this video so cackle-worthy was the the AMAZING mashup of shade that followed.

Chaka Khan looks fed up.
Dionne Warwick is like “Girl… WUT?”
Patti LaBelle is like “I don’t have time.”
Beyonce is like “Who gon tell her that was terrible?”
Aretha is unable to deal.
And Rock and Roe just don’t understand.
Maggie Smith is like “WELP! We’re done here.”

And Shady Grady Cat wants to add his thoughts with one look.

Cats giving epic side-eye

“What the hell was that, bro?”

Bless young Rihanna’s heart. She tried. Well, new Rihanna is slightly improved vocally but she must NEVER EVER attempt another Mariah Carey song. EVER. In her life.

What did Rihanna sound like to you? Methinks she sounds like scattering roaches. But that’s just me.

P.S. I admit that I wrote this whole post just so I could have a reason to use this picture of the shady cat. I’m so here for him. He is indeed my spirit animal.

    That look on Dionne Warwick’s face is everything and it made my hump day much sweeter! I also love how RiRi’s arm was all up in the air like she did something… gurl have an entire stadium of seats with that screech/yodeling you call singing. My ears hurt.

    Yes people who agree with me, that child cannot sing,sang or carry a tune or note, they are too heavy or high for her to reach and take off the shelf. This was at a talent show one of a few she sang at when she was in school, and let me tell you this was not the worst.

    As a Bajan I feel no sense of obligation to .the undefendable, as someone from the Caribbean and being in choirs, I take the gift or in her case the burden of singing seriously.

    Bajans have no problem booing people when they get up on stage talking bout they can sing, we booed Ashanti when she came down there to sing, the girl was just off key and out of time purposely.


    This last Gif is what I want to do every time I hear her music

    Luvvie it is not throwing shade if you are telling the truth, it is called shedding light.


    Miss Whitney should be added to that mashup.

    For this look and movement says and expresses all that is wrong with calling Robin Fenty a singer.

    Every time I hear her sing or see a video I just wanna,

    Everytime I hear a Rihanna song or see a video this is my response. Luvvie it is not throwing shade if you are telling the truth, it is shedding light on the situation.

    This child can’t carry a tune in a bucket, or reach a note high on the shelf as evidenced in this video.

    It’s beyond shade.

    • Kwan
      October 3, 2013 at 12:18 pm

      Honestly I thought that tweet was weak simply because Teyanna didn’t pay for that party. Now All that ranting this was the only tweet Teyanna should have sent and she should have won THE WHOLE DAMB argument.

    YASSSS, this Got2BReal clip has given me LIFE all over again! GAH, I wish Patti LaHelle was still making them! Anyhoo, my buddy put me up on that horrific FULL VIDEO of Robyn slaying notes with her machete tonsils….the thing that murked my soul the mostest was that she WON FIRST PLACE in whatever kind of “talent show” that she was “singing” at. Lawd, Barbados is starved for talent if this bish won the top prize!

    • October 2, 2013 at 5:42 pm

      “Machete Tonsils”. You win comment of the day, and I am slayed.

    Note that the Nike logo the swoosh looks awfully like a check mark…

    ….aaaaaaand Im out.

    Now as a proud Bajan I am defending my peoples cause we can sing (mt sister has some pipes). Miss Robyn Fenty cannot sing and she had no place Winning that travesty of a “talent” show, she won cause of looks.

    That chile cannot carry a tune in a bucket or reach the notes on the top shelf as she was clearly trying to do.
    P.s. Luvvie its not throwing shade if its the truth, it called shedding light on the situation 😉

    My daughter loves Rihanna. She even convinced me to take her to the concert when Rihanna rolled through Atlanta a few months ago. (If I were a blogger, that experience would be worth a week of posts) My daughter even admits that “performance” is bad, but when I showed her the comment that the child sounded like scattering roaches, she ran from the room, talmbout “that’s not nice!” Maybe not, but neither was that performance.

      LOL yes. I have many spirit animals. My spirit is versatile. My other spirit animal is Serena Williams’ yansh.

  34. October 8, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Well it seems Rihanna has already learned her lesson. She knows the right songs to use and gets positive response from most of her audience. I wonder what the Shady Grady cat has to say now though. 🙂
